After Taslim Parsons sends her kids off to school for the day, she heads to work, just like a lot of other mums. But her workplace is a little different to the typical office – next to the pens and notebooks, it's not unusual to see a sleek aqua sex toy sitting on a nearby shelf!
Tas is the founder of Share Satisfaction, a luxury adult toy brand based in New Zealand, which she created in 2020.
"It’s a fascinating job and I love each day," Tas tells Mamamia.

"Before Share Satisfaction, I worked at Parents Centre New Zealand, a parenting support and antenatal education charity, where I met lots of women who had issues after pregnancy and childbirth," Tas explains.
"Those conversations were open and very revealing to me. When I left there, it made sense to me to continue that work and help everyone who wanted to explore their sexual wellness."
Which is exactly what she did, taking a role at large-scale adult pleasure and sexual wellness distributor, Wholesale Solutions. There, she developed a passion for helping other women find pleasure. And after many conversations with retailers, consumers and her own circle of friends, she found a gap in the market for luxe products that were actually affordable.
