Growing up, Chris Cicchinelli witnessed his single mother, work minimum wage jobs to support the family. Eventually, she would realize the potential in a niche market that is paradoxically taboo but highly lucrative – adult-oriented “relationship enhancing” products. Cicchinelli watched as Brisben grew the business out of the back of a U-haul, traveling from town to town building up a strong base of customers who could discreetly purchase products that Cicchinelli says can help couples communicate better and build stronger relationships, maybe even save marriages.
