Qortezan is a dream come true for its creator, Edie Orenstein.

For years, Edie has envisioned a place where people could come to have a richly-layered experience of beauty and pleasure.  Where people are free to explore the joy of sensuality without shame or judgment.  A place that is beautiful, generous, and comfortable for everyone.  This place is Qortezan.

Qortezan is inspired by the charm, intelligence and sexual wisdom of the great courtesans of history – women whose wit and sensuality earned them freedoms exceeding the norms of their social milieux.  The source of the courtesan’s mystery and allure lies in her confidence.  Her awareness of her own sexuality and power allows her to infuse the whole of life with sensuality.

Qortezan is informed by the creative power of self expression and the philosophy that sex is not a separate part of life, it is the creative force of life itself.  Qortezan is dedicated to accessing that force and empowering men and women to enjoy it in their own lives.

Everything you will discover at Qortezan has been selected to create an experiential tapestry that encompasses all aspects of life.  From elegant clothing, beautiful lingerie and massage lotions, to the most exquisitely intimate toys and accessories.
