Dirk Bauer founded the FUN FACTORY at his kitchen table in 1995. He and his friend and fellow engineer Michael Pahl dreamed of creating colorful, high quality erotic toys made of 100% medical grade silicone. A year later, FUN FACTORY was launched. Bauer has now been at the helm of the company for 25 years. FUN FACTORY was the first sex toy brand to win a mainstream design award, the first to make waterproof toys, and the first to make rechargeable toys. In his spare time, Bauer enjoys biking along the banks of the Weser River.
