20 Things to Love About Committed Sex

September 20, 2013

0 Comments

sponsored post

Wow, you guys really love committed sex! And you especially love to get a little kinky with your committed partners. (Either that or you just really lust after LELO’s pleasure objects.) But we have a feeling it’s both. We truly struggled to pick just one winner in our LIV2 committed sex contest, and, as you’ll see, we included an unusually long list of runners-up. The winner will receive a LIV2 by LELO – it’s the newly upgraded edition of their iconic mid-sized vibrator, now 100% more powerful! And the runners-up, published below, get the admiration of you, dear EMandLO.com readers.

In addition to the runners-up below, you’ll see that we included a special “Deep Thoughts from Dave” section. Reader Dave was almost our grand prize winner, but Kitten just nudged him out — however, Dave entered so many times, you might say he was truly committed to this contest. And we think it’s always good to hear from a man who digs monogamous committed sex in so many ways. Happily, it turns out that our friends at LELO agree with us, which is why they agreed to send an additional LIV2 to Dave and his wife! We heart all of you for reminding us how much there is to love about monogamy.

WINNER:

My favorite thing about committed sex has to be the freedom to propose and experiment with old or new things without fear of being thought odd. Everyone has those fleeting or long-term fetishes that are easier (and more fun, imo!) to feel out with someone who knows your groove and can usually discern your thought process. But even beyond this is the ability to act out your fantasies with the person onto whom you’ve been projecting them. Whether it be hot, wild sex or luxurious and sensual lovemaking, I’m giddy and pleased as punch after connecting with my boyfriend this way.

He and I both liken our sex together to old-fashioned video games, where getting through each level was fun and engaging, but you got better each go-around and found the tips, tricks, and Easter eggs that added new dimensions to the experience. I love observing him and his reactions to what I’m doing, and when we figure out a new combination of techniques that woks for either of us, you can be sure there are fireworks! And afterwards, the shared sense of “that was..wow!” and knowing that you still haven’t figured out all the iterations leaves me eager to experience it again or explore a different way. Being able to stir each other’s passions and build our shared intimacy really makes me feel sexy, and it all feeds back into the relationship. — Kitten

Got a Great Idea for a Sex Toy?

September 9, 2013

0 Comments

Funnily enough, one of the most common questions we get around here (after “How can I enlarge my penis?”and “How can I orgasm more/better/at all?”) is “I have a sex toy  idea — how do I go about getting it made?” We’re not in that biz, so we avoid those questions. But now we have an answer — not necessarily the answer, but an answer, and a fun one at that!

LoveHoney.com is holding a sex toy design contest this week. So if you’re a sex toy connoisseur, an engineer, a graphic designer, an inventor, or an incessant doodler, send them your sex toy idea and they might turn it into a product that earns you more than $150,000 in royalties!

There are 3 categories you can enter: Sex Toys for Men, Sex Toys for Women and Sex Toys for Couples. The winner of each category will win $1,500 and the Judges’ Pick will receive an extra $3,000 making it a grand total of $7,500 of prize money… plus the chance to have your toy made and earn royalties!

Trev Murphy from Dublin, Ireland invented the Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator (pictured) for LoveHoney’s 2009 contest, and has since had his toy made into a reality. It has sold over 120,000 units and earned Trev over $150,000 in royalties!

Deadline for entries is Monday, September 16, 2013.

Lelo’s Iconic Vibrator, Upgraded: Powerful, Sensual & Oh So Quiet

August 27, 2013

As we mentioned a few weeks back, our friends at LELO have been making major improvements to some of their best-selling pleasure objects as part of their 10-year anniversary celebrations, which are taking place throughout 2013. We already told you about how the world’s best G-spotter, the GIGI2, got even better. Well, today we’d like to tell you about the LIV2, which is the newly upgraded edition of their iconic mid-sized vibrator. Here’s how they upgraded it:

  • An extra strong motor now emits double the vibration intensity of the original. Yep, that’s 100% more vibration strength. And it’s as whisper-quiet as ever.
  • Remember how the original Liv had five vibrating patterns? Pshaw, this one has eight! And the controls are still oh-so-simple.
  • It is now fully waterproof, which means you can take it literally everywhere, and it’s easier than ever to clean.
  • The body-safe silicone is even softer than before, for a smooth and sensual touch.

And you know what they didn’t change? It’s still a gorgeous — and gorgeously packaged — high-end personal massager that is perfectly tailored to the curves of the female body. We bet you can’t say that about your last date. In other words, at $199, it’s a steal. Better yet, if you order on LELO.com and use the code Em&Lo1, you’ll get 15% off!

Grey is not a common color for a sex toy — which makes the GIGI 2 such a novelty in the pleasure biz! You can still get the new and improved G-spotter from LELO.com in more typical colors (deep rose, turquoise blue, petal pink), but now you have the option of a subtler shade of sophistication, too: “cool grey.”

LELO Pleasure Objects Have a Cameo in “The Wolverine”!

July 29, 2013

According to movie goers of The Wolverine, the latest summer blockbuster based on the Marvel Comics superhero, LELO makes a special cameo amidst all of the action and high-flying stunts.  Items like the dual-action vibe Soraya™ and the wearable couples’ massager Tiani ™ 2 make an appearance in a scene in which Hugh Jackman, as Wolverine, finds himself in a love hotel in Tokyo, Japan, where much of the film takes place.

We’re told that it’s a fleeting scene though – so keep your eyes peeled!

It’s not their first foray into mainstream entertainment: LELO has been seen on TV shows around the world (like on Inside Amy Schumer), and their G-spot vibrator GIGI™ had a very big role in a comedy film out of Hong Kong recently. However, The Wolverine marks their first appearance in a big budget Hollywood movie.

The Wolverine, the sequel to 2009’s X-men Origins: Wolverine, is out in theaters worldwide now.
