JENNIFER JOLICOEUR – PRESIDENT
Educate Empower Entertain
Athena’s is the dream of Jennifer Jolicoeur, the very first adult toy party planner in Rhode Island almost 30 years ago! Jennifer started with humble beginnings and launched her business from her 3 room apartment in Rhode Island. Her vision was to make sex toys accessible while encouraging discussions about their benefits. She conducted hundreds of educational and entertaining parties each year all over New England.
After 5 years of building an extremely successful and profitable home party business, she set out to create her very own company – one that worked as a family unit with its distributors – a company with a mission to change the world, one orgasm at a time. In 1998, Athena’s Home Novelties was born.
Based in Woonsocket, RI, Athena’s is one of the country’s premier adult novelty party plan companies with over 1,000 active Goddesses and Adoni operating in 44 states across the country. In addition to sexual empowerment, Athena’s has helped thousands of people find a meaningful way to achieve their financial goals. Goddesses and Adoni have fulfilled many dreams: new cars, new homes, vacations, friends, confidence and more time with their families.
To empower all people through sexual education in a safe, comfortable environment while offering only the highest quality products presented by a trained Athena’s Goddess or Adonis.
Athena’s Home Novelties is a proud member of the Direct Sales World Alliance (DSWA).
The Athena’s Cup
Athena’s Home Novelties’ ambitious charitable endeavor, The Athena’s Cup spent 10 years collecting unwanted bras from women all over the world. In October of 2019, it was time to begin linking their 200,527 donated bras to create their record-busting chain! On October 4, 2019, 1,000 boxes of bras were delivered to River’s Edge Sports Complex in Woonsocket, RI where this remarkable chain was constructed. Volunteers, aka HOOKERS, came together to raise breast cancer awareness and break the Guinness World Record for the most bras hooked together. This momentous project of hooking and linking each bra together had volunteers working tirelessly through the wind, cold, rain and a classic hard-driving New England Nor’easter storm.
For 13 days, from early morning to late evening, The Athena’s Cup collaborative led by Jennifer Jolicoeur, the mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt, firefighters, police, citizens, friends and their children and Athena’s beloved Goddesses and Adoni, hooked, judged, logged, measured, walked and ran to make the world’s longest bra-chain.
