Hello Lelo Lyla: Motion-Controlled Buzzy Fun

Today I was lucky enough to receive a brand new Lelo Lyla SenseMotion vibrator via an unsuspecting courier. Having battled my way through layers of sticky tape, I finally opened the sleek black box. Inside, nestled amid oh-so-snazzy black velvet, were two rose-coloured objects, neither of which looked anything like a vibrator. “What’s that?” my lovely husband asked. “Wait and see,” I said, thinking I’d show him how they worked.

D.Vice Are Nice

Almost a fortnight ago I attended Sexpo, the local adult entertainment exhibition. Aside from spruiking for the Sex Party, I bought myself some lovely corsets and wandered around filming some of the action. I also interviewed the lovely Wendy from D.Vice, a New Zealand-based sex toy company. D.Vice has been around since 1998 and they were one of the first companies to push the envelope when it came to sex Read More …

Philips Boldly Creates “Personal Massagers”

Electronics company Philips has decided to brave the prudes and boldly bring out a massager that’s explicitly for sexual use. That’s right. Philips has started to make sex toys. Gasp, shock, look at the share price go up. Their new range of personal massagers are designed for use by couples which is an interesting take on things. “We know that couples in happy relationships tend to have satisfying sex lives Read More …

The Butt Plug Coffee Tamper

This delightful stainless steel work of art is NOT a sex toy. It is, in fact, a coffee tamper made by Avanti and available for about ten bucks or so from your average kitchenwares shop. Like this one. The other day my husband arrived home wielding this wonderful thing, keen to get his espresso coffee thoroughly stamped into place, always aiming for the perfect crema. I swear, he and that Read More …

“The Anus Is Not A Sex Organ In Texas”

This little 12 minute video is called “Dildo Diaries” and it documents the insane laws against sex toys and anal sex in Texas which, thankfully, have just been overturned by a court. It’s worth watching for the first 5 minutes as we go into an adult store and see the insanity at work. To summarise the rules: * You can’t own more than 6 dildoes because that means an intent Read More …

Good Vibrations Merger Deal

Following financial difficulties (which apparently nearly saw them close their doors), Good Vibrations has announced a merger deal with General Video of America and Trans World News. GVA-TWN is a huge distribution and adult products company and it looks like they stepped in with a wad of cash. It’s an interesting turnaround for what was originally a small, grassroots co-operative. I wonder if they will maintain their committment to providing Read More …

Solar Powered Vibrator

A site called Tree Hugger has an interesting article about 10 ways to green your sex life. And while they recommend non-phthalate dildos and rechargable battery vibrators, they didn’t mention the solar powered vibrator. This handy-dandy device is designed to plug into numerous existing sex toys like the micro bullet or micro kitty strap-on and gets all its energy from the sun. So you can get off without warming the Read More …

Amazon Is Selling A Vintage Vibrator

So there I was perusing the sex toys and vibrators at Amazon.com and I was musing about how when I first joined their affiliate program you weren’t supposed to sell via an adult site. Whereas now they have a wide range of dirty, naughty adult products on sale and no questions asked. Anyway, there it was: a 1930s vintage vibrator from Battle Creek, for sale for $249 via a company Read More …

A Sex Positive Adult Store

I want to do a quick post about a new adult store which is owned by a friend of mine. Ashley’s Sex Toys is a nice looking site and it sells all the usual stuff but what I really like is the education section which contains quite a large number of useful articles and information. Naturally I’m very pleased that they’ve got a piece about women-friendly porn, including a plug Read More …

Good Vibrations In Financial Trouble

SFGate reports that adult store Good Vibrations is having financial difficulties and apparently the internet is to blame. It seems they can’t compete now that Amazon has started to sell sex toys. They’re also blaming Google and it’s nasty new algorithm which stuffed up their listings (tell me about it!) and subsequent sales. Interestingly, Libida.com says they also had trouble with Google but overcame it by becoming “leaner”. There are Read More …
