I believe I've found a fastlane idea, but it's sort of ridiculous...

Not only is the idea I have ridiculous, it's also an idea which my mother and my extremely religious grandmother would be upset about knowing I tried to start a business with.

But considering I don't see a product like it on the market, that the product solves a genuine problem/inconvenience/pain/annoyance that no other product currently solves, and that I could definitely abide by the commandments of CENTS when creating this product -- I'm pretty sure it could be fastlane.

The only problems I have are that: the idea I have is for a product in the sex industry (and all of my family and my girlfriend would find that weird), and I cannot guarantee that this venture will work out.

I also might have trouble prototyping when trying to make sure the product works properly as I haven't thrown any money at it yet and I might just not be able to solve the problem that I would develop the product to solve.

I'm still looking for other business ideas (as I'd be more willing to pursue them) but this sex-related product business idea is my best idea to date and my mind just can't seem to shake it -- advice?

You might get some mileage out of this thread:

Any sex-toy developers? A long-shot I'm sure...
Will peruse through that.

Thank you.

My guess would be his mother still visits him in his $26.5 million dollar house.

Alternatively, you could constantly seek the approval of everybody and likely never accomplish anything. Your choice.
You're absolutely right.

I ultimately do not need anyone's say so to begin pursuing this idea. It doesn't matter what anyone else says about it, but despite that, I'm still here asking for confirmation to ensure that it's okay.

I am thoroughly amped-up about this idea and find it surprising that nobody has came up with this particular product idea yet.

I do think if I can solve the problem this product is meant to solve I genuinely might have a great product on my hands -- I'll just need to patent it or the like to ensure some large corporation doesn't mass produce and advertise it in quantities and exposure that I cannot.
