A Christmas tree decorated with sex toys has been causing a stir in Milan city centre.
It was all too outrageous for city officials who ordered the removal of the decorations. The city council claimed that the Christmas season qualifying as a holiday for children and families, requires sobriety in urban decorations , particularly
when it comes to widely-used festive symbols such as trees.
The owner of the tree said there were only a few complaints and most people were enthusiastic. The tree promotes the online sex shop, MySecretCase. Owner Norma Rossetti, said the Tree of Pleasure was part of her mission to make sex toys completely normal everyday objects
. She added that she has now removed the offending baubles.
Jewish comic Shed Simove is fighting a legal battle with adult shop, Ann Summers, over its Rampant Rabbi vibrator.
The toy comes with the tagline Oh God! Oh God! Oh God! and claims to offer the modern Jewish woman a religious experience. When asked if it may offend Jews, he added, I am Jewish and a fan of laughing at one's culture.
Simove wanted to trademark the sex toy's name, but Ann Summers, a chain of adult stores in the UK, said it infringes upon its Rampant Rabbit vibrator and filed papers to block it.
Simove's other creations include Buckingham Phallus, a sex toy that looks like Queen Elizabeth II.
While many sex toy manufacturers claim that their products are free from phthalates, Swedish officials are starting to inspect adult items a little more vigorously.
According to TheLocal.se, while phthalates are banned from children's toys, the world of adult toys are not regulated, and therefore Swedish officials want to study the effects they might have on those who routinely use dildos and vibrators with the
Phthalates are used in a variety of items, water bottles, PVC pipes and more, to help make plastics softer and more flexible.
Anna Lofstrom, environmental inspector with Malmo city, told the TT news agency:
What we know about these chemicals is that they have strong reproduction inhibiting effects but it is not known how people are affected by using sex toys that contain the chemicals.
Woolworths was the first Australian supermarket chain to sell battery-powered sex toys. But the move was short lived as the shop soon
bowed to the inevitable nutter protests.
While manufacturer Durex hailed the move as a game changer for the industry , the store soon performed a U-turn, clearing thousands of the products off shelves. These seems to be a response to a large Christian group calling for a nationwide
boycott of its stores.
Roslyn Phillips, a campaigner from Christian advocacy group FamilyVoice Australia, said sex toys belong in sex shops. She spouted:
Society is already suffering massive problems with young children being over-sexualised ... this move by Woolies just makes the problem worse.
I, personally, would not patronise Woolies while this situation exists and I encourage everyone else to boycott them too. I hope parents will let Woolies know how they feel and I hope they tell them they'll continue to shop elsewhere until these products
The Australian Family Association's Terri Kelleher, chipped in that the sale of vibrators was diabolically wrong :
Do we really need to be explaining to our children what a vibrator is whilst walking down the supermarket aisle? It completely undermines that parental prerogative as to when and how you raise these sorts of things with children.
A spokesman for Woolworths confirmed an email was sent to all store managers advising them to withdraw the products immediately.

The owner of French firm Divinextases has seen sales triple after offering erotic products that appeal to the eco-conscious.
Frederic Donnat saw a gap in the market that was more interesting than the usual organic beauty products . He refocused his online business to eco-erotic products.
From balms for buttocks left sore by a spanking session to intimate perfumes, all Donnat's products are made in France with sustainable materials from reputable sources. They use beeswax and shea butter rather than palm oil and all are wrapped in
Divinextases , whose pills are sold in pharmacies, organic stores and sex shops, now wants to diversify into aphrodisiac-laced tea and sugar, company director Fleur Phelipeau told AFP.
Meanwhile British company French Letter sells carbon-neutral condoms made from natural latex produced in sustainably-run forests. A French website arbredesplaisirs.com (Forest of pleasure) promises to plant a tree in the Amazon rainforest for every sex
But some are cynical about the rise of the organic sex shop. Easy Love, a network of lingerie and erotic accessory retailers, claimed eco-erotic products have sold very badly and dismissed the concept as a publicity stunt .
A novel vibrating bike saddle cover that should get female cyclists' hearts beating faster is being sold in the UK.
Since the toy, dubbed the Happy Ride, aroused world wide interest following a Daily Mail story earlier this week, the online retailers selling it have seen a huge spike in web traffic.
The Happy Ride, which costs £28, uses a hard-wearing nylon outer layer that houses the vibration mechanism. It's controlled by a small operating panel.
Paul Waudby, from SexShop365, told BikeRadar:
It's just something we wanted to get out there. We've been seeing the Tour de France happening, and just generally in London Boris Johnson is trying to push the whole cycling thing, so we just thought it'd be really funny and a good opportunity to get
the product out there. We've sold loads of them; we can't really believe it to be honest -- we weren't expecting this kind of response at all.
The UK's adult trade magazine, Erotic Trade Only (ETO) runs an annual awards show. These are the major awards for Britain's online and offline sex
shop trade. Here's a selection of the winners for 2013's awards that may be of interest to shoppers:
Director Michael Bay spent $75,000 of his budget for new film Pain & Gain on sex toys - because the naughty items kept disappearing from the set.
The renowned director was hoping to return some of the unused dildos and dolls he used in the film, and recoup some of the cash he'd spent on them, but when shooting ended many of the aids were missing.
In the movie, which is based on a real-life kidnapping drama, thugs, played by Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie and Dwayne Johnson, abduct a wealthy Miami businessman and force him to sign over financial documents while torturing him at their hide-out, a
sex toy warehouse.
Masturbation is the self stimulation of the sexual organ by finger, hand, everyday objects or specially
manufactured sex toys. Masturbation was once believed to be sinful and damaging to health and development and was known as self abuse . Mutual masturbation is the stimulation of a partner's genitals. The main purpose of masturbation is usually,
but not always, to achieve an orgasm. Masturbation is not age related and has been witnessed in infants and often continued through a person's whole life. The frequency of masturbation varies according to age, some teenage boys have been known to
masturbate to orgasm six to ten times a day and older people might only masturbate a few times a month.
Women who masturbate using everyday objects have been known to insert unusual things into their vaginas and anuses. Masturbation objects include but are not limited to, candles, soap, shampoo bottles, mobile phones, vegetables, fizzy drink cans, bottles
of various sizes, baseball bats, racket handles and even huge objects such as fire extinguishers. Male masturbation objects will include the aforementioned for anal penetration; for penile masturbation objects include but are not limited to, pillows,
between cushions on sofas, cut out fruit such as oranges and water melons, bubble wrap, toilet roll tubes, vases, bottle openings and even more dangerous items such as vacuum cleaner hoses. Use of many of these objects has caused serious injury and there
are numerous accounts of people attending medical clinics and hospitals with damaged genitals or objects lost in their orifices.
The safest form of using equipment to masturbate is to buy purposely produced sex toys. There are many manufacturers but the top names such as Doc Johnson, Pipe Dream, Diva and Leco are the safest products to buy as they have been rigorously tested and
constructed from high quality materials. Cheap Chinese imported sex toys with no branding or counterfeit packaging should be avoided for both quality and safety reasons.
Many people of all walks of life and of all sexual persuasions are buying or are interested in buying sex machines. Although the sex machine is not a new invention its development and acceptability has grown in recent years.
Sex machines or fucking machines are used by gay men, lesbians, heterosexuals and bi-sexuals, they are used by single people, those in a monogamous relationships and by swingers and people who enjoy group sex. The sex machine or fucking machine is
powered by mains electricity; this provides a regular and constant power and will outperform any battery sex device. Quality sex machines such as the Sybian,
Blue Balls ,
Caesar 3.0 ,
HumpUs and others seldom disappoint the purchaser; these machines have been made following a research and development program and are made from the best quality materials providing the user years of service.
A sex machine or fucking machine replaces a human sexual partner. The machine can be adjusted to penetrate the user in numerous
different positions and the speed of thrust and depth of penetration can be adjusted to optimum requirements.
Quality fucking machine s are very quiet and provide the best features. Sex machines are bought to enable the user to enjoy a sexual experience that is almost identical in feel to real sex. When choosing a sex machine it is beneficial to buy one that
is compatible with the Doc Johnson
Vac-U-Lock system . Doc Johnson are a U.S. manufacturer of sex toys and have been in the business for several decades, all products are made from the best materials and will be long lasting. The Vac-U-Lock system allows the owner of the sex machine
to change the penetrating accessory with a huge range of alternative items; anal probes, dildos, life like cocks, artificial anuses and artificial female genitalia for male penile use.
The sex machine is the perfect equipment for both male and female masturbation, providing a hands free as close to a real sex experience as is possible. Couples can enjoy a third person experience without the mental turmoil that a real ménage a trios can
bring to a relationship. A sex machine provides safe sex and can actively reduce the frequency a person carries out risky sexual contact with another person.
Condom-maker Durex has introduced app-controlled underwear that vibrates, the company announced in a YouTube video.
The promo features a demonstration by an Australian couple remotely touching each other.
The premise is that if you and the main squeeze want to get busy while you're apart, you can put on the Fundawear and buzz each other via iPhones. You simply drag your fingers across an app diagram of the body parts you want to stimulate remotely. Wires
and sensors convey what actual touch cannot.
Fundawear is still in the experimental stage, so no word on a release date.

Here's an interesting conundrum that is taking place in China. It involves the rapid spike of sex toy consumption courtesy
of men who simply can't find themselves a female partner.
More leftover men in China are buying adult toys, confirmed manufacturers who reported a significant jump in sales last year. Much of the sale had to do with gender imbalance in the country where young men outnumber young women, the makers of the
toys said. This is the consequence of a one child per couple policy where, one way or another, parents choose to have a boy rather than a girl.
At the 10th annual China International Adult Toys and Reproductive Health Exhibition, which opened at the Shanghai International Exhibition Center, vendors said sales, especially those for men, increased by 30 to 40% last year.

High street retailers Superdrug and Ann Summers have joined forces to offer customers the chance to pick up some Fifty Shades-inspired
fun alongside their weekly toiletries.
From Wednesday 27 March, Superdrug will stock a selection of Ann Summers sex toys and novelty items. The range will sit within the existing sexual health and wellbeing section of the store and will also be available to buy from Superdrug.com.
The Superdrug range will include Rampant Rabbits (from £49.99), vibrating bullets, Jiggle Balls (£18) and the metallic Vibrating Egg (£20), as well as smaller, novelty items such as Milk Chocolate Body Paint (£5) and Edible Lubricants (£8).
Ann Summers brand director Fiona Davis commented:
Following the Fifty Shades phenomenon, sex toy sales have shot through the roof. We're delighted that our best-selling products will now be accessible to a wider audience.
, a porn site and on-demand adult video company, is holding a contest to see who can best integrate its video catalog with a motion control device similar to Nintendo's Wii or the Kinect technology on an Xbox 360.
GameLink in press release and via Jeff Dillon, a vice president claimed:
Leap Motion will be able to sense the user's hand and finger movements for direct 3D interaction with the screen.
Nobody wants to use their keyboard or mouse anymore -- why not just a flick of the hand. Porn is eventually going the way of Minority Report ... or a hologram thing like Tupac at Coachella.
So far Dillon's had some good ideas, like a Fleshlight -- a sex toy -- that syncs up with the video playing in front of you. He said that motion-control technology has come a long way, and that complete sex simulations are only a wham-bam-thank-ya-ma'am
Unfortunately both Microsoft and Nintendo are miserable gits when it comes to adult fun. They don't seem keen on allowing people to use their systems for this type of thing.
