In 1994, at the age of 13, I moved from Boise, Idaho to Bel Air and attended the Buckley School – a private college preparatory school in Sherman Oaks. Alumnus include: Matthew Perry, Alyssa Milano, Nicole Richie, Laura Dern, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Rashida Jones, The Jackson family, the Disney Family, The Strokes, Phantom Planet, TEVIN CAMPBELL etc. Oh, one last name to drop – Brett Easton Ellis attended Buckley, and his book Less Than Zero is based on his experiences there. I only attended Buckley for one year, before switching schools, as I wasn’t (how do I say this?) tonally in tune with Buckley. But its amazing to me that attending a school for one year, at the age of 13, would provide me with many life long friends and acquaintances. One of those friends is a guy named Chad Braverman, who was one year below me at Buckley. Its funny, because we were never close friends while at Buckley, but when you go to a K-12 with only 750 kids you tend to know everyone in your age range. Also, when you move from Idaho to LA in 8th grade – everyone has a profound impact on you, and being the kid who moves to LA in 8th grade – you have just as big of an impact on everyone. Lets be real, I was the first person any of them had ever met from Idaho – lets not forget that half of the kids didn’t even know what or where Idaho was. Anyway, I reconnected with Chad, a few years ago, through my good friend Dr. Romanelli, and discovered that he is now running his family business Doc Johnson – the world’s largest manufacturer of sex toys (dildos). So a few months back I asked if he would give me a tour of his manufacturing facility, to take photos for my blog. Lets be real -how often does one get the opportunity to tour a dildo factory, let alone the biggest in the world? Chad, being the bad ass that he is, of course said yes and let my friends Bryan Ray Turcotte and Cali DeWitt tag along. The one stipulation was that I had to promise to not show his employees faces, as many of them are heavily involved with the Catholic Church and/or don’t want their family members to know where they work. I hope you enjoy the tour as much as I did.
