Christmas Buzz...

Christmas tree decorated with sex toys causes a stir in Milan


Link Here 15th December 2013
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.

 

 

Rampant Rabbi...

Jewish comic crosses swords with Ann Summers over vibrator name


Link Here 29th October 2013
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.

 

 

Safety and Flexibility...

Sweden looks to investigate the use of phthalates in sex toys


Link Here 17th October 2013
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 substances.

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.

Eco Ethical Organic Aphrodisiac Tea...

French company claims that organic is not enough and adds an eco-ethical dimension to erotic products.


Link Here 14th August 2013
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 recyclable packaging.

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 toy purchased.

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 .

 

 

Harnessing 'Outrage'...

US Sears store takes down bondage gear for men


Link Here 13th August 2013
The major US department store, Sears, has pulled men's bondage gear from website after complaints from the easily offended. But women's leather lingerie is still available

Apparently some customers were 'shocked' that the retail chain featured erotic accessories on its Elegant Moments page. Items included a leather collar with chains and a 4 Piece Adjustable Harness.

The items were being sold through Sears's marketplace, which allows online shoppers to order online from additional vendors.

It remains unclear why some of the men's items have been removed, while leather G-strings, corsets, and sexy costumes for women remain available.

 

 

The Happy Ride...

An exciting bicycle seat


Link Here 26th July 2013

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.

Real Life Sex Doll Kidnapping...

US film Pain and Gain set in a sex toy warehouse


Link Here 4th May 2013

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.

Grabbing a Slice of the Action...

GameLink runs contest seeking innovative ideas to use porn in conjunction with Wii or Kinect


Link Here 14th January 2013

GameLink.com , 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 away.

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.
