CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION
Alicia Sinclair is the founder and mastermind behind ‘Children of The Revolution’. The inclusive and queer friendly manufacturer of intimacy products that aims to make everyone feel sexy, confident and positive surrounding sex and personnel pleasure. Alicia, whose motto is ‘Everybody has a butt’, founded COTR in 2015 after becoming aware of a gap in the market that required a more inclusive, research-based approach to sex toys that would help many women and queer people develop a more positive relationship with sex.
Since its launch 5 years ago, COTR has successfully released three sexual lifestyle brands; b-Vibe™, Le Wand™ and The Cowgirl™, with each bringing something new and modern-minded to the ‘sextech’ table. Each product released through these brands takes the sex toy experience to another level, all coming with a regularly updated ‘pleasure guide’ which goes into high-depth research with instructions, so the owner of the incredible tech can educate themselves on their bodies to reach maximum pleasure and sexual liberality.
“The common narrative from a heterosexual narrative is that women have anal sex for men and it’s not something that is theirs and they can’t have pleasure from it, what we try and do is show this is something everyone can enjoy, regardless of your gender or sexual orientation or how you identify as a person”.
Alicia prioritises education with her launches, covering all elements of sex, including anatomy education for all genders, position recommendations as well as breaking down stigmas surrounding a variety of different sexual categories such as queer sex and anal stimulation amongst women. “The common narrative from a heterosexual narrative is that women have anal sex for men and it’s not something that is theirs and they can’t have pleasure from it, what we try and do is show this is something everyone can enjoy, regardless of your gender or sexual orientation or how you identify as a person”.
What makes Alicia such a powerful force, is she doesn’t make the focus about sex, it’s about pleasure. COTR pushes the idea of body positivity, no matter what race, religion, gender or sexual orientation you may be. Everyone has a right to feel confident and empowered and COTR can allow you to do this through exploring one’s own body and developing a positive relationship with both self and sex naturally and at your own pace. COTR has won a variety of awards and accolades for their incredible diverse work including ‘Best new product’ at Adultex 2018 along with Alicia singularly winning ‘Brand Ambassador’ of the Year at the 11th Storerotica Awards.
