September 10, 2013

0 Comments

sponsored post

** THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! CHECK OUT THE WINNING ENTRIES HERE. **

Don’t forget to check out our latest contest: All you have to do is tell us your favorite thing about committed sex (as opposed to, say, casual sex or first-time sex or new sex or ex sex or breakup sex), and you will have a chance to win a  LIV2 by LELO – it’s the newly upgraded edition of their iconic mid-sized vibrator. (Now 100% more powerful!)

Maybe your favorite thing is the post-coital pillow talk, or knowing your way around someone else’s body blindfolded, or being comfortable enough to get seriously kinky, or simply having sex on tap without having to hit the pick-up scene or agonize over whether someone is going to return your call. You tell us! Along with the winner, we’ll also feature the runner-up responses in a post on this site. Accolades and good vibrations — what more could you ask for?

Post your responses here or email us anonymously here — the odds are currently really, really good that you’ll win. Also, feel free to enter as many times as you like: Every post (or email to us) counts as a separate entry!

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

sponsored post

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.

The New and Improved Hitachi Magic Wand Is Here to Stay!

June 11, 2013

2 Comments

The new and improved Magic Wand is available at GoodVibes

We’re incredibly relieved that we didn’t find out how close the Hitachi Magic Wand came to being pulled from the market until after Vibratex swooped in to save the day. It turns out that after decades of people co-opting the famous back massager as a trusty sex toy, Hitachi finally got a bit uncomfortable with having their name associated with screaming O’s. Fortunately, Vibratex — who have been the sole importer of the Hitachi Magic Wand for more than a decade — agreed to take over, and they are now the official distributor of the renamed Magic Wand Vibrator.

Sure, you may pine for the awesome ’80s pics of women in leotards on the old school packaging, but the new Magic Wand has been updated so that it’s now even stronger, complete with modern circuitry and even stronger internal construction. We have been raving about this workhorse vibrator for years — it’s the best-selling vibrator at Good Vibrations — so we thought we’d excerpt some praise for it from our book Sex Toy: An A-Z Guide to Bedside Accessories:

Where to start? It’s the Cadillac of vibrators, the Tom Cruise of turbo-toys, the bestseller, the MVP, the woman’s best friend, the box-office sure thing, that ’70s toy. The Hitachi is the most popular vibrating sex toy in the world. The world! The Hitachi was initially marketed as a “muscle massager,” and it is still packaged that way. It makes sense—after all, electric body massagers work by bringing blood to the area, which is—hey!—exactly what happens when you get turned on. And because the Hitachi was designed to be a work-horse, it can last for decades—unlike those crappy “novelty” items designed to last for the duration of a bachelorette party.

The Hitachi is the toy that inspired Joani Blank to found Good Vibrations. Masturbation maven Betty Dodson started ordering them by the case-load in the ’70s, to give out to women taking her self-love classes. Sure, the Hitachi sounds like a dying cow, but once you feel its strong vibrations you won’t care whether you’re waking the neighbors. Just try not to have an orgasm when you hold one of these puppies against your clit—though we don’t recommend direct stimulation, even on the “low” setting. Try it over your jeans or a pillow, or just squeeze it between your thighs and let the vibes travel north. The Hitachi has a soft foam head covered in soft acrylic, about the size of a tennis ball, and a foot-long white plastic handle (so no arm cramps!).

Sure, it’s not as cute as the Rabbit—in fact, it’s rather medical-looking. But if you’ve got a nosy house cleaner or a dog who likes to drag inappropriate “presents” into the living room whenever your mother-in-law is over for tea, that might be a good thing. Plus, next time you get a real back-ache after a grueling transatlantic flight: hey presto! You own a back massager!

The new and improved Magic Wand Vibrator is for sale now at GoodVibes.com
