The Stockroom was founded in1988, when 21-year-old college student, Stockroom company founder Joel Tucker, began making quality bondage products at an affordable price, something he found lacking in the fetish market. Tucker started distributing his hand-crafted items through a mail-order catalog, and soon after established Stockroom.com, which is known as one of the first e-commerce companies in existence.
From its humble beginnings in Tuckerâ€™s college apartment, The Stockroom has grown into a corporation that employs over 60 people in Los Angeles and San Francisco, with two retail outlets and a beautiful 32,000-square-foot manufacturing, production, and office space at its Los Angeles headquarters. The vertically integrated facility combines leather and latex production, shipping, receiving and warehousing with design, executive and sales offices, and a retail boutique that in 2008 was named â€œBest Fetish Storeâ€ by Los Angeles magazine
The Stockroomâ€™s key acquisitions include Daedalus Publishing, a publishing company specializing in nonfiction alternative-sexuality books, Syren Latex, a top manufacturer of fetish clothing, and Stormy Leather, a long-established brand featuring sexy corsets and fetish wear.
Stockroomâ€™s Syren and Stormy Leather divisions have become trusted resources for production studio services. The clientele list includes videos and photo shoots for Jessica Alba, Madonna, Britney Spears, The Pussycat Dolls, Nine Inch Nails and No Doubt, among others Syren Coutureâ€™s custom, handcrafted garments have been featured in films such as Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Batman and Robin, Batman Returns, Men in Black II The Watchman as well as on popular television shows such as True Blood, Ugly Betty, and CSI: Miami.
Tucker entered the adult industry with a vision: He believed that sex and kink products could be designed, marketed and delivered in a more intelligent, civilized and beautiful way, using high quality products, an attention to aesthetics, honest communication, superior customer service and unique creativity.
The Stockroom has always reflected the personal values of its founder, striving to fulfill the sexual product needs of all its customers in an approachable, respectful and nonjudgmental way. To this day, The Stockroom strives to articulate acceptance of and appreciation for the wide diversity of human sexual expression.
