Today we’d like to introduce you to Noa Magdassi.
Noa, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I studied Art in Academia and I noticed that many nude representations in art are feminine. When I used to visit the museum, all I saw was that many of the works of art refer to women’s nudity.
I grew tired of the fact that most of the nude representation in art is of feminine images. So, I decided to combine the naked body with an open discussion about sexuality and nudity in everyday life without the embarrassment attached to it all during my studies. This was made visible by my art- Whether in drawings, Prints or sculpting. I began experimenting with my fellow students (Willing ones) and made exact replicas of their genitals in all states of arousal. Some were embarrassed at first. It was odd for them to accept the fact that non-sexist nudity could be a clean part of our daily lives. Certainly, male nudity.
My work and gallery show got rave reviews and I saw that something has awoken in people creatively and assured me that I was on the right path. After school, I decided to open my own studio in Tel Aviv, Israel and give people an intimate experience for couples in which they come to my studio and create a special gift – A replica of their most private members as a daily used toy or sculpture, beautifully wrapped.
The studio was successful, and I decided to move my work to Boston with short brief jumps to Israel for a special meeting with clients. The new Studio is now fully operational and is open to new clients.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
When I only started my business a lot of people, including my family were amused and hesitant to bring it up in conversations. My dad really didn’t want to know what his daughter was up to.
As we know- Not everyone is open-minded at first but when they stop to think and realize that they are also human beings with sexual desires and don’t have to be ashamed of it- The conversations took a lighter tone and became more relaxed.
When I got into the dating pool I was sure that no one would want to date someone who likes to make replicas of male “Members” and I even remember hiding that fact from my then date (now husband) for fear of his response.
However- He took it in stride and even helped me build my studio. When I began to publicize my business- The start was a bit rough since some people thought it was a joke. I got messages that asking if that was for real. But once I started getting clients and the word spread- I was approached by several publications who ran my story and people realized that I was able to fulfill their most secret desires.
Moving to a new country and one that has a new and more conservative tone as of this past 2 years has also been a challenge, but I soon found my tribe of open-minded people in the Boston area and am now really seeing a rise of popularity in the Studio.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Bulbulz – what should we know?
My business is called Bulbulz. It is the Hebrew word for “Penis” and in my studio, I specialize in making exact replicas of the male genitalia.
It’s a very intimate experience in which an individual or a couple comes to my studio and create a special gift for themselves or their partner. or for the both. I help them to loosen up a little; we Talk a bit; drink wine and I go through the molding process. After I create the replica, the client cleans up and then chooses how the finished product will turn out- The colors and I can even adjust the size if one wishes… I am proud of the relationship I maintain with my clients- They often send me pictures of themselves with their replicas out and about.
What sets my studio apart from others:
-I create a special experience for couples who wish to spice up their love life and take it a step further. They are going to remember this experience forever, and end it up with a high-end, quality product.
-The process itself is safe and the materials are body safe.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
From the get-go- My best friend from high school Roi Yaron www.designley.com, A graphic designer who helped me and guided me through the rough couple of month and is still supporting me and the studio even from across the world.
He is responsible for the Brand, He created my website, The illustrations in it, The social media profiles and he is always my ear when I need to vent or just ramble about nothing,
Another person I recently started working with when I moved to Boston was Yama Barkaee, she is helping spread the word across Boston about the Studio and advises me.
