The Story of Fantasia Home Parties & Miss Sensuále

1987partyOnce upon a time, in 1984, a woman named Rina Valan was frustrated about the limits placed on women in the business world and in their personal relationships. Back then, you literally had one choice: raise a family or have a career. In addition, if women complained of lack of pleasure with a partner, it was just assumed she was ‘frigid.’ Those choices were just not acceptable to Rina, and so her mission became clear to be that champion for the financial and personal well-being of women & their partners (and families).

With a $10,000 loan from her mother and drawing out all her cash advances on credit cards, in August 1984 Rina started Fantasia Home Parties in a small dusty warehouse in Elizabeth, NJ. She loved her 3 year old daughter so much that she could not bear to leave her with a sitter, so she took her to work every day. In the evenings, Rina would train new consultants so they could sell at home parties on evenings or weekends and be able to support their families, as well as be there to take care of them too. The concept allowed consultants to make their own schedules and work as much as they wanted or needed to.

convention5 Rina, her daughter, Emily, and a team of wonderful consultants still work side by side. So nearly 35 years later, Fantasia (featuring Spa, Body, & Romance products) stands still as the pioneer and leader in romance home parties and has evolved into Miss Sensuále.

Rina and our fearless team leaders continue to forge the trail, and make it possible for women (& men) to be equals in matters of the heart, personal pleasure, and providing income for themselves and their families. Some consultants do it in pink high heels, some in sneakers, some are single and some married or in domestic partnerships, some are single parents, and some of us are even taking care of our own parents.
