A 464-page tribute to one of the 20th century’s most influential, intriguing and controversial photographers.



For the voracious reader:









Kindle Paperwhite

There’s no screen glare in bright sunlight when you’re reading on the beach with one hand (it’s over 30% lighter than iPad mini). The battery will outlast your week-long vacation and there’s a built-in reading light for late-night climactic endings you can’t put down.

Fellowes Saturn SL 9.5 Inch Laminator (5213201)

Turn it on and it’s ready for some hot lamination with its 9 1/2-inch entry in just minutes, aw yeah.

LELO’s Alia Personal Massager

A my-first-vibe that’s small, elegant, discreet, beautiful, with a gold accent that’s perfect for this gift-giving season.



For the playgirl:










Carole Hochman “Midnight” Short Wrap Robe

A cool, machine-washable robe with piping detail and quilted texture — like a sexy smoking jacket for gals.



For the posture-obsessed:








Gaiam Balance Ball Chair

Like regular sex, it’s great for your back health.



For the smooth operator: 







Belkin WeMo Switch and Motion Sensor

Control your electronics from anywhere with the home automation app for smartphones and tablets — great for turning on the mood lighting before they bring their date home.

Everything a newbie needs to start making their Ana & Christian fantasies a reality.



For the hopeless romantic:







BARSKA Starwatcher 400x70mm Refractor Telescope w/ Tabletop Tripod & Carry Case

(Plus, it’s made without sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs, or triclosan!)



For the beauty sleeper:





Chezmoi Collection White Goose Down Alternative Comforter

Because why should a cute little goose have to die just because you want to get all snuggly warm with your partner?

Elegant, cinematic nudes in a hardcover that evoke 1940s Hollywood.



For the new mom:







Luna Beads

The best-selling Kegel weight & pleasure bead system on the planet (note: this gift will probably go over best if given by a girlfriend or sister rather than husband!).

Em & Lo’s Sexy Holiday Gift Guide: $10 Edition

We start here with the affordable gifts around 10 bucks, then, over the next few posts, we’ll work our way up with gifts priced around $25, $50,¬†$100¬†and $150+. They’re not all sex toys, so you’re sure to find something for every adult on your shopping list!

For the “Fifty Shades” fan:









“150 Shades of Play” by yours truly, Em & Lo

We didn’t write this review, we swear!: “Em & Lo are irreverent, smart and funny feminists out to demystify the world of kink. Best of all, I caught up on all the juicy info and how-tos without enduring the pain of reading a single page of the Fifty Shades trilogy! Smartly written in an A-Z dictionary style with the book’s other terms usefully bolded throughout. Also loved the sometimes hilarious illustrations.”



For the traveling businessman:









Tenga Egg Masturbation Sleeve

For when you can’t be with the one you love. Peel the outer layer like you would a hard-boiled egg, then crack open the shell to reveal an ‚Äúona-cup‚ÄĚ — each one offers a unique internal texture. Get different strokes from different yolks!



The LELO Holiday Gift Guide for Couples

December 5, 2013


sponsored post
Beautiful, elegant pleasure objects for couples, made with high quality materials and the latest technology, make the perfect holiday gift for a partner — they say “I love you, you’re sexy, and we’re worth it!” After all, it’s the gift that you both get something out of: more pleasure, more sensation, more sexy-time fun! Below are LELO’s Top 4 Couple’s Toys:

1. IDA

IDA is the world’s first ever couple’s massager that vibrates for external pleasure AND rotates for internal pleasure. It’s worn by the woman; controlled by either partner with the handheld remote; and enjoyed by both, of course!

2. HULA Beads

You know the pleasure beads made famous by Fifty Shades? These are 100 times better! Hula Beads combine rotations AND vibrations for the first time ever. Like the IDA, ¬†you or your partner can control the “spin from within” with the remote.

3. TOR 2

This is LELO’s elegant take on the vibrating couple’s ring. The TOR 2, worn by the man, can extend his presence, while increasing both partner’s pleasure with powerful, near-silent vibrations targeted at the clitoris. It’s their couple’s massager that started it all!


4. LYLA 2

LELO’s remote-control technology is at it again. With the LYLA 2 pleasure egg you can hand the controls over to your partner — and it will work from 108 feet away! Which gives new meaning to making eyes across a crowded room. (Also great for intimate at-home parties of two.)

LELO’s Latest: The Rotating AND Vibrating Hula Beads

November 14, 2013


sponsored post

LELO is unstoppable! They’ve just released yet another new toy: HULA Beads‚ĄĘ — the world‚Äôs first ever remote-controlled pleasure beads that rotate and vibrate at the same time. Its features include:

  • Remote Controls with SenseMotion‚ĄĘ Technology
  • 8 Stimulation Modes (6 Standard, 2 SenseMotion‚ĄĘ)
  • 100% Waterproof
  • Rechargeable (2 Hours‚Äô Use)
  • Ultra-smooth, Body-safe Silicone Design
  • 1-Year Warranty, 10-Year Quality Guarantee

There are two different ways you can use Hula Beads: Insert only the rotating bead gently within, and let powerful vibrations be felt around the ultra-sensitive labia and up to the clitoris. Or take things further by wearing them discreetly inside, so the top bead rotates against the G-spot, while the lower bead delivers powerful vibrations through 8 stimulation patterns, each adjustable via wireless remote. And you’ve got to love LELO for explaining exactly how they work (a rarity in the sex toy industry):

With a remote control range of 12 meters, it could make your next cocktail party really interesting.

Use the code Em&Lo1 on LELO.com for 15% off a pair of Hula Beads!¬†Plus, there’s free holiday shipping on all LELO orders between now and December 31st, 2013!


Feel the Force: Star Wars Vibrators

November 5, 2013


Geeks of the world, get excited! Balazs Sarmai, a photography, video and web artist based in Hungary, just designed a series of Star Wars sex toys based on actual LELO pleasure objects. They’re “Force powered,” aw yeah. C-3PO (above) is a¬†LELO GIGI 2,¬†R2-D2 is a¬†LELO ALIA,¬†Vader is a¬†LELO IDA¬†and the Stormtrooper is a¬†LELO TARA. You can see all the designs here.

This isn’t the first time he’s geekified some LELO’s. Back in August, he made a series of Avengers sex toys, including Captain America, Iron Man, and very veiny Hulk. If only they were real — Comi Con would go bonkers!


New Spray Helps Men Go Longer (Without Numbing Her)

November 5, 2013

Until now, any product on the market that was designed to help a man go longer in bed had the highly unfortunate side effect of numbing his female partner in the process. Who really wants sex to last longer if you can’t feel anything? Enter¬†Promescent, a brand new FDA-approved over-the-counter spray for treating premature ejaculation — or for any guy who wants to last a little longer in bed (the company is hoping for significant recreational use sales). It absorbs so quickly that there is no numbing effect at all for the woman.

Premature ejaculation affects one in three men at some point in their lives –¬†and one study estimated that more than 50,000 men are currently taking anti-depressents to last three to five minutes longer in bed. The buzz is already beginning for this product, and we imagine it’s only a matter of time before we are treated to hilarious, euphemistic television spots featuring gauzy curtains and smiling couples embracing each other post-coitally.

Bring it on, we say! We’d love to see “premature ejaculation” become something that newscasters are forced to discuss on a regular basis — check out this hilarious clip of a CNBC anchor discussing Promescent. She says that Promescent is, “Not for men who can’t get the party started — [deep, brave breath, steeling herself] — but for men who end the party too soon.” Though “erectile dysfunction” pretty much rolls off her tongue at the start of the segment, she interrupts herself midway through talking about P.E.: “Premature… You know, I can’t even say it, they call it P.E.” Say it, lady!

We asked Jeff Abraham, the CEO of Promescent — which is a small start-up that probably ¬†won’t be a small start-up for much longer –¬†a few questions about this new product:¬† Read the rest of this entry »
