"There is something more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great Chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our own interest that the chain pulls society in the right direction..." - Andrew Ryan

Fredericks is a company operating out of Rapture that offered several types of feminine products. It was most well-known for the Happy Handmaid, a sex toy.
Rapture was different from most Mid-Twentieth Century societies for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons included the city's sexually liberated population. Men and women were encouraged to seek out pleasure and live without shame. Fredericks of Rapture catered to these carnal needs with their Copper Line of products.
The Happy Handmaid was a vibrator geared towards women with the promise of relieving stress and boosting peace of mind. The product was publicly endorsed by acclaimed psychiatrist Dr. Sofia Lamb. Advertisements for Happy Handmaid can be seen in public venues such as the Grand Foyer of the Adonis Luxury Resort.
