For kinksters, by kinksters.
PlayTyme is a community-based lifestyle brand dedicated to fostering an environment of love, support, and self-acceptance for ABDLs, Pups, and other kinksters!
We offer a collection of products and services tailored to kinksters and niche communities.
How you do anything is how you do everything.
By staying on the cutting edge, PlayTyme will never fall behind the times. We leverage various tools and SaaS platforms to execute ideas quickly and efficiently.
🤝Be super helpful
We go above and beyond to solve problems and exercise empathy. We deliver magic to customers and fellow team members by becoming the change we wish to see.
🙏Act with humility
Our top priority is to treat everyone with respect. Leave your egos at the door.
We take pride in crafting beautiful products. Every interaction a customer has with a product or service from PlayTyme should feel tailored, unique, and complete.
Teamwork makes the dream work, so collaboration is king. We use asynchronous communication tools to minimize unnecessary meetings and micro-management.
🤓How we work
PlayTyme operates 100% remote, with our team being spread across the globe. We do plan to eventually have a drop-in office in San Francisco, but those plans are on hold until the pandemic passes.
We move fast, operating mostly on Threads, Notion, and Vowel. Threads is our primary async comms tools. We use Notion for documentation, project management, and some of our forward-facing sites (this entire website was built using Notion and Super!) And Vowel is an incredibly powerful Zoom alternative.
We don't rely too much on meetings. We have a weekly standup on Mondays where we catch up on each other weekends and discuss goals for the week.
Otherwise, most communications occur via Threads or Loom. We use Loom a lot, as it's one of the best ways for us to communicate with our global team.
We have a few roles that need to be filled as we continue to expand! If you don't see an open role that fits your skill set, send your resume, intro, and/or cover letter to email@example.com. We're always on the lookout for unique talent, especially from members of the communities we serve.
Quick tip: We pay special attention to applicants who send a Loom video intro instead of a traditional cover letter 😎
🙋♂️Want to learn more?
We do a lot here at PlayTyme, all to serve our community! Here are some frequently asked questions for ya.
We get this question a lot due to the nature of our ambassador program. Ambassadors and individuals on our PR list will periodically be sent free products. However, we typically do not send out PR or samples without a relationship being established first.
Hi 👋🏾, welcome to PlayTyme!
A word from our CEO
Thanks for checking us out, and I hope you enjoy your stay 😃. I just wanted to take a moment to talk about how PlayTyme got its start and why I started this hilariously weird journey!
In late 2019, I felt alienated from the ABDL and Pup communities. It was hard to find clothing I could wear out of the house while also fitting my needs as a diaper wearer. Few companies showed non-white models wearing their diapers or gear, which led to frustrating situations where I would buy something only to discover it didn't look good on my skin tone. And finally, I rarely saw any community leaders or business owners who looked like me, which made me feel like I didn't belong.
Fast forward to April 2020, and I launched PlayTyme to fix all of these issues. We're one of the only black-owned businesses in the ABDL and Pup communities. Our ambassador program features a wide range of body types, ethnicities, sexualities, and gender identities. And our product lines are centered around finding ways to engage with your ideal headspace or kinks in your day-to-day life, not just when you're at home in your playroom.
As a small team of three, PlayTyme has managed to build not only the best customer shopping experience for kinksters, but we also have a community discord server: the PlayTyme PlayGround, a mobile app; available on both iOS and Android, and our extremely popular podcasts: Newsie’s Nook and The Big Top!
We're building a future where kinksters can finally have a place to call home.
Kink isn't always about the toys and gear. It's about creating curated experiences in multiple facets of your life to fit your particular lifestyle, identity, and interests. Here at PlayTyme, we celebrate that🙌🏾!
Thank you for checking us out, and feel free to take a look around! I think you'll enjoy what you find.

- We're using the quote block to create the fixed navbar instead of an ID, so it should work out of the box, but that means you can't really use the Notion quote block anywhere else throughout this template. Thinking of better ways to go about this!
- The navbar & footer are global Notion blocks, meaning if you edit the ones on the template home page, it'll carry the changes over to the rest of the site
