The first online curated marketplace for upscale lingerie and sex toys has just launched. Called AHAnoir, the site's merchandise is organized into sections such as "Toys for a Night Alone," "Kinky Couture," and "Beginner Bondage." AHAnoir also offers educational content. "I think the most important part about this industry is the education and we do that across the board. People want to learn about products before they invest and purchase," founder Shauna Mei told Racked. [Racked National]
