The article features multilevel marketing business Passion Parties International and its president and chief executive officer (CEO) Pat Davis. Passion Parties allegedly tries to strike a balance between intriguing and lurid as it sells love life implements to women at parties. Davis admits that sex toys account for a big part of their sales but says that they avoid to be branded as a porn shop by excluding adult videos or materials related to sadomasochism from their catalog.
