I just finished reading a book and I highly recommend it. It is called Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh one of the founders of zappos.com a truly fantastic read. In short it is about their company culture and their passion for the products they sell.
The type of read that gets you thinking about what you do. It is about the customer experience. What type of experience are we looking to deliver? At Zappos they are all about speed and efficiency. At Koala we are about the experience of pleasure. We want to deliver a product that the customer enjoys and looks forward to using. Speed is another issue. Our suits are made here as most of you know. I have tried factories here and overseas to speed up production and have had sample suits made all over. The outcome is always the same. There is no way to produce a super high quality in our case one suit at a time custom quality suit and rush it through. At any given time we have about 90% of all designs in all sizes in stock but that 10% just kills me. I would love for every order to go out the same business day it is received. That is our target. 100% complete orders shipped the same day and that is exactly what happens about 80% of the time. Yesterday was a great example. We had and order come in right as we were closing and UPS was there picking up. It was a 2nd day air order. The book named above motivated me to unlock the warehouse, ask the UPS driver to hang on and pack and ship that order which would normally ship on Monday. I am sure the customer will be blown away by how fast it comes but it also made me feel great knowing that it will most likely surprise him.
Sometimes I wonder if we should offer fewer designs, my feeling is that if it takes and extra week or so to get what you really want it is worth it. Do you have any thoughts about this. Would love to hear about any ideas you have to make your experience a more enjoyable one.
Most of my best ideas come to me while tanning at the beach or around the pool in my micro.
Last few days have been absolutely stunning west coast days. Yesterday was so hot after an hour in the sun I was so over heated that I took a plunge in our non heated pool. It was so cold that when I got out even my micro pouch was almost empty. Laying there the thought of another micro design came to mind and a name too. That rarely happens. The idea is a tiny triangle flat pouch only large enough to cover your cock head but designed to push the shaft completely inside of you. The balls would not be inside but pulled smoothly between the legs. It would be called the Triangle Teaser and would be among the smallest designs ever.
I was thinking about the tiny clit cover suits that Wicked Weasel makes for the ladies. I don’t see them often on our beaches but I have. They only cover the clit and completely expose the lips. I not sure they still make them but It would have been the perfect suit for me after a cold dip in the pool.
I was talking to a friend today who had asked how I started in this business. The reason I started Koala is because I could not buy the spandex Lycra suits and fetish designs I wanted to wear. They just were not made ,that is the short answer to the start of Koala. The real beginning was most likely my first Speedo when I cut out the lining as a teen and used it for swim class at my school. You have no idea how extreme that was then and needless to say if you cut out the liner of a Speedo you see almost everything when it gets wet. The start of a Lycra love affair. Hate to date myself but started watching The Runaways Movie last night, funny thing we all used to go to the same clubs and I new Joan and Cherie when they dropped Cherry Bomb ( For you boys in the know) The start of the movie with Dakota Fanning wearing those hot spandex pants that still get me aroused.
P.S Kim in Australia drop me an e-mail I lost yours!

Whole masturbating with myself last night(I think it was Woody Allen who said masturbation is sex with some one I love) an idea about a suit design that helps you with overall control for when you will ejaculate came to me. It is just a blur but the basic idea would have large hard beads connected to adjustable straps that would be set in pressure points under around and on top of the penis. We all know a few and maybe you could offer some placement feedback. A design like this could be used for a number of things. First it could help teach you to prolong erections. It could increase the intensity of ejaculations and make sex even more fun.
I have been reading a book about Zappos a very good book. It talks about a companies core values and it got me thinking about Koala’s core values. A few that come up right away just off the cuff are getting our customers excited, expanding our own and our customers sexual adventures and getting men to show more skin!
I working on others!
If you stretch a shaft and do it consistently it will get longer. I wonder if you compress a shaft all the time if it will stay small? The thought occurred to me yesterday while is was enjoying a perfect lunch break around the pool wearing my custom Slut G-string, the pouch is half the size of the already very micro pouch. I both love the way it looks and the way it feels. So small, so exposed and so great looking. After an hour of having my shaft and balls in what can be described as a cock compactor when I peeled the suit off my shaft stayed at what must of been under a 1/2″ in length. Other then when I am in cold, freezing cold water and it becomes an inee I have never seen it that small and it stayed that way for a while. Very interesting. Wonder if I should create a g-string, thong and bikini the purposefully compresses the equipment? On that excerts way more pressure then a standard micro.
First let me ask you a question. One I have asked before but need whatever you can give me.

Just trying to make koalaswim.com easier to use. Thanks for any help or suggestions you can offer.
Back to our game Saturday. I was happy to see the girls suits were almost as small as mine. The Work That Cock bikini really leaves your penis out there on it’s own to fend for itself. Sure enough jumping around, diving for balls bumping into cute butts my pouch was full to capacity. Lucky for me it does not take much to fill that micro pouch. A couple more local girls came over and joined the game. One said to me she was sure I was European seeing me wearing my bikini and was surprised to hear my non accent and see I was local. I said you don’t need to be from Europe to want a great tan. She smiled and agreed. We played for over an hour and it got competitive to the point that I wanted our team to win every game. I dove for a few shots that changed my bikini to a thong and by the end I was sweaty enough that parts of my pouch must have been see through. Not a big deal with this group as I found out later they were all use to visiting nude beaches. They loved it here but said how much nicer it would be if we relaxed our rules of nude and topless sunbathing. I whole heartily agreed. We exchanged e-mails and ended up having a great day. Too bad Sunday was back to cold or I would have met them down there again and would have gone micro g-string for sure!
Saturday was one of those awesome SoCal days. It looked like it was going to be a nice day so I headed down to the beach with a friend. He is strictly a shorts guy but I am working on him to convert. I decided to wear a bikini which is rare for me but we usually go for a run and a bikini works better for that. Still went very extreme with the Work That Cock Bikini. It made him blush. We got down there and it was just so nice and sunny. We wre laying closer to the Volleyball courts not my choice I am a closer to the water guy but it was fine. There was a group of what I guessed to be Europeans playing volleyball. My guess was based on the fact that the men were wearing either small boy shorts or Speedos not your typical USA boys, the girls were in smallish bikinis.
They were playing 4 on 4. It looked like fun but it’s a lot of sand to cover with only 4 on a team. One of the balls was spiked hard and landed near us. One of the girls retrieved it stopped and asked if we would join them.I was right they were European, Italian of which there are many that vacation in the area and it is what they were doing. My friend jumped up and said sure. It left me looking like a kill joy if I said no but playing in such a tiny bikini I knew everything would be showing. Jumping around in that would fill my pouch and I am sure I would get aroused, it doesn’t take much. I had no choice I had to play.
Got an updated ETA on the new designs. As of this morning the girls tell me they should have stock of all the new designs for Spring by the 3rd week of March. We shoot half of the designs earlier this week using Gabe. We love Gabe because not only is he great looking with an excellent body and a rather huge cock but he is willing to try anything. He loves the anal suits and he gets off when using them. He is always hard and loves being penetrated. He is married but Bi. I get the feeling he is more into guys but who knows he works with our suits beautifully. I do the photography when we shoot for our site. After all these years I know what I want. We take a ton of photos and I get to take my time and pick the best shots for each suit. I admit that many times I pick the photos that give me a ping of excitement. Some are just so over the top they get me hard.
I think a shot should show extreme detail because A: we are proud of our suits craftsmanship B: a picture is worth a thousand words and C: our customers enjoy seeing great model shots. All said and done there are some truly amazing close-up shots of Gabe and his very ample equipment.

Tuesday I spent a couple hours with the girls going over new designs and went into detail about my idea for a micro suit smaller then anything on the planet. This is the one that would push the testicles inside of you and just have a tiny short shaft pouch n the same shape as a normal pouch but very small.
We cut some samples and I showed the girls how I wanted it to look. There is only one way to do it right and that is on a body which almost always is mine. I showed them how the balls can be pushed way up inside which surprised them. This was a team effort. Once they knew how the balls went in I had one girl push them up and hold them in so they did not slip out. The other held the fabric that keeps the ball in place the way I wanted it and I showed them how the shaft would look bent in half and covered with a tiny pouch. A week ago I had no idea if it would even work. After yesterdays mock run I am sure we will get it down in time for the Summer collection. Most likely a g-string and a bikini. I’m so excited!
In the spirit of the Academy Awards after viewing all the beautiful stars which men and which women would be your top choices to see wearing a micro g-string?
Right off the bat a Franco and Hathaway would look great shaved and sporting matching ultra micro bottoms.
