Meet The Oh Collective Co-Founder, the Sweetest Human You Will Ever Meet, and our Hand-Model, Winxi Kan!
You asked, we answered.
You asked, we answered. In the coming series we will introduce our four female founders of The Oh Collective: Diana Lin, Eden Chiang, Simona Xu, and Winxi Kan!
They are not business partners who decided to start selling sex toys online, but also a #girlsquad of best friends that travel, work, and party together.
Eden, Diana, Simona, and Winxi first met as colleagues at a Fortune 500 Company, and now, five years later, successfully launched The Oh Collective!
What's more, they are #JustLikeYou.
When the four best friends first decided to start The Oh Collective, their vision was to create not only sex toys and intimate wellness products but also foster a community of like-minded women who are willing to explore the realm of female intimate health and wellness.

Hey Winxi! You were born in the Netherlands but have been living in Shanghai for the past years, how did you end up here?
☆ ☆ ☆
I came to Shanghai when I was taking a break from work. I just quit my first job and was traveling in Asia. While visiting my grandparents in Shanghai I fell in love with the city.
It's quite ironic. Most of my friends know that I'm a bit of a hermit, I enjoy solitude and being at home. Though I love Shanghai for its vibrancy and diversity, and have called this concrete jungle my home for the past 5 years.
What’s something you’re passionate about and how has that been applicable to The Oh Collective?
☆ ☆ ☆
I love products and product details, therefore I always worked in buying and merchandising in the apparel industry (I used to be addicted to having all of my clothes made at a tailor in Shanghai but that luckily has been tamed down).
At The Oh Collective, we spend a lot of time listening to consumers’ feedback. What do they like, what are their challenges, and what are they missing? When you work with products you get to understand that consumers and products will always go hand in hand. We cannot create amazing sex toys online without understanding our girls' needs.
How do you find the time to work a full-time job, be a co-founder, and also be in a serious relationship? What’s a tip you have for other busy-bee Gals?
☆ ☆ ☆
It’s all about finding the right balance and listening to your own mind and body spirit. I choose to surround myself with kind and genuine people. Friends that I can be honest with. Friends that I feel loved by.
Also, my boyfriend is the person closest to me. He’s very supportive of what I do and always motivates me when I’m going through my ups and downs.
I’m incredibly lucky to have an amazing group of inspiring people around me.
If you could rewind time and give 21-year-old Winxi one piece of advice, what would it be?
☆ ☆ ☆
When I turned 21, I just finished university and started my first job. I felt really really mature and thought that I knew it all. Looking back, the truth is that you haven’t experienced much in life and haven’t seen much of the world.
If I could turn the clock back to 21 years-old me, I would tell myself to not be influenced that much by other people’s opinions, not to overthink, and to dare to follow my gut. Try more new things and dare. Dare to make mistakes, dare to live.
