Hillsborough, NC — Adam & Eve founder Phil Harvey never intended to create America’s largest adult toy empire. What began as his master’s thesis at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 1969 – the selling of condoms by mail – quickly evolved into the nation’s number one adult products company that is known today as Adam & Eve.
Today, Adam & Eve is the nation’s preeminent provider of pleasure products, with a broad range of “sex positive” items, including sex toys, vibrators, lingerie, and, yes, condoms.
Adam & Eve currently oversees 92 retail stores in the U.S., Canada and Peru, and plans are underway for more. The retail operation offers both single and multi-store developments, in which entrepreneurs can be a part of a national brand yet run their own businesses.
Serving 15 million customers through its award-winning website, AdamAndEve.com, and catalog, the company goes to great lengths to assure customer satisfaction by performing regular quality assurance inspections, offering an unconditional money-back guarantee, answering customers’ questions, and shipping each order in discreet packaging. With more than 8500 “sex positive” products lining its warehouse shelves, customers can rely on Adam & Eve to have the product they want at a price they can afford.
PHE, Inc., the parent company of Adam & Eve, houses a staff of 339 at the North Carolina headquarters and a large number of employees own stock in the company. By having a personal stake in the success of Adam & Eve and PHE, employees are highly motivated to provide customers with the best possible service while ensuring relationships with vendors remain cordial, honest and lasting. In fact, 22% of these employees have been with the company 10-19 years, 16% have been there 20-29 years, and 5% have been with the company 30 years or more.
“Adam & Eve has spearheaded the landscape of sex and pleasure as we know it. By providing toys to the masses, they are pioneers providing sex positive products and information directly to the privacy of your bedroom.”

When employees raise money for these organizations, PHE matches their funds to double the impact. The Hillsborough-Orange County Chamber of Commerce recently named PHE, Inc. its “Business of the Year”– partly for its outstanding corporate citizenship and community outreach programs.
What Is “Sex Positive”?
Adam & Eve believes that consenting adults have the right and opportunity to enjoy safe sexual experiences within their own moral boundaries, and the right to private avenues to purchase products enhancing sexual pleasure.
Adam & Eve:
• Informs adults about issues and trends on sex;
• Advocates sexual honesty and encourages adults to exercise their political influence to maintain their freedoms, and;
• Entertains adults, encouraging them to view sexuality as a healthy, normal, positive experience that can be enjoyed within the privacy of one’s own home.
In addition, Adam & Eve Founder and President Phil Harvey uses his share of the company’s profits to help fund DKT International. Rated one of the best international family planning and AIDS prevention organizations in the world, DKT’s family planning programs provide accessible, affordable birth control products and services to millions of couples, making it possible to prevent HIV infections and assist with family planning. The efforts made by DKT in Africa, Asia and Latin America help improve family health, lower infant and maternal mortality and improve prosperity.
