Company Overview​

Imp Ideas was founded in 2012 by Ruth Douglas as the parent company to run the Eroticon conference.

Eroticon, the conference for sex writers and erotic creatives was launched in 2012 by Ruth, under her erotica writing pen name Ruby Kiddell. Between 2012 and 2016 she coordinated six Eroticon conferences, including Eroticon USA.

Ruth sold Eroticon in 2016 to concentrate more fully on growing Imp Ideas and serving more clients.

Imp Ideas is based in East Devon and works with independent businesses and adult industry clients to help them grow their customer base, launch new products and increase sales.
