US court case against 'pleasure gel' for failing to deliver the goods
Link Here

come alive pleasure gel for her The author of 50 Shades of Grey is being sued over inadequate sex lubricant.

Last week, Tania Warchol filed a class-action lawsuit in California claiming that the Fifty Shades of Grey Come Alive Pleasure Gel For Her failed to deliver on its promise of sexual gratification and improved orgasms. (The suit names author Erika Mitchell (EL James) and Delaware corporation Lovehoney as defendants.)

Warchol is suing on behalf of everybody who bought this over the last four years, and is seeking a refund and punitive damages. She is claiming that the sex gel violates California's unfair competition and false advertising laws. The complaint reads:

Based on Defendants' representations, Plaintiff believed the Product has powerful aphrodisiac qualities and would increase her sexual pleasure as advertised. The Product did not deliver the purported benefits.

Silly story about remote dildos apps using unencrypted internet communications
Link Here

loveseense Smart internet connected sex toys are at risk from hackers, a security firm has claimed. The company says that the toys can be easily hacked, allowing people to intercept communications and take control of them. They also warned that one of the toys even captured video, which could easily be accessed.

Security experts examined a series of adult toys that link to an app. Most working by interfacing with a smartphone app. The allows them to be controlled remotely, or to download new software from the internet.

Joe Bursell of Pen Test partners said the firm decided to investigate the market, which has dozens of products already available and in development. He couldn't come up with much of a reason why anybody should hack sex toy communications though, saying:

If an attacker could intercept the devices communications they could portray their victim as a monumentally inept in the stimulation department, which would be hilarious and tragic in equal measure.

There was no apparent encryption during the registration process, meaning anyone snooping on the line could get hold of login information

Teddy bear sex toy is a hit at the AVN Expo
Link Here
Teddy Love Plush Bear Vibrator One of the biggest hits at the recent AVN Expo in LAs Vegas was The Teddy Love.

He's a bear affixed with a protruding tongue that vibrates at a high frequency when you press on its right ear. The Teddy Love has a very specific niche, it retails for about a $100, and seems to intrigue everyone he meets.

Toy developers Wendy Adams and Robert Harmon described it as a paradigm shift.  Adams said:

It's for men and women. You can leave it out in plain sight. And you can cuddle with it. The best part about it is it doesn't have to come up for air.

After months of gestation, the Teddy Love was released in late December. More than 2,000 have been sold since, according to the company.

  Romantic Boulevard...

Plans for a sex themed park in Taiwan
Link Here

Taiwan flag Taiwan's media is reporting on a project underway to build a sex theme park. It is part of a nearly 40-mile coastal Romantic Boulevard. The Boulevard will feature some less scandalous stuff: heart-shaped arches, a glass church, scenery for wedding photos--but it will also feature the sex themed park. It's likely to look something like a similar park in South Korea called Jeju Loveland, which has statues of things like giant genitals and people having threesomes.

Called the Romantic Boulevard's finale, the park will also have educational videos and sex toys, as well as what that site calls interactive facilities.

There will also be a hotel nearby, just in case visitors want turn their feelings into actions, an official, Shih Chao-hui, says. He explains the reasoning behind the whole idea: We want people to fall in love with Taiwan as well as fall in love while in Taiwan .

The central government's tourism department isn't thrilled, but the organisers hope that the promise of sexy revenue will bring them around.

  Acclaimed Brands Bed Together for Kink Fun and Safety...

Rouge Garments and Nice 'n' Naughty join forces with Jackson Rocco to add gear and toy links to respected kink app guide
Link Here

Nice 'n' Naughty Award-Nominated leather brand Rouge have teamed up with renowned retailer Nice 'n' Naughty and revered pro-kink expert Jackson Rocco in a unique three-way partnership that caters for the ongoing upsurge in demand for fetish and BDSM products.

Using Rocco's internationally-acclaimed android app of The Book of Filthy Sex Games , readers will for the first time be able to access directly specifically chosen Rouge and Nice 'n' Naughty BDSM gear and toys featured in the app's sixty-nine session 'recipes' for fun and safe kink play.

Rouge ranges featured include its luxury padded ankle cuffs, blindfolds and adjustable wrist to neck restraints, all made using exquisite, quality leather from trusted tanneries. Nice 'n' Naughty items include bestseller essentials like vibrators, plugs, lube and massage oils. App users will be able to visualise and learn exactly what item of equipment each kinky practice requires while also offering the chance to shop and order instantly from their smart-phones.

jackson rocco logo The collaboration will not only be promoted by in-store 10,000 flyers and tags but be buttressed by live workshops on safer adult play, as well as regular blogs on jacksonrocco.com. Additionally, Nice 'n' Naughty shoppers will also be able to claim exclusive free apps (originally priced 6.99) of The Book of Filthy Sex Games through Google Play, benefiting from a definitive guide to kink heralded as 'a ginormous achievement' by fetish industry critics, and containing a 'wealth of information worth the price of the first section alone.'

A spokesperson for leather manufacturer Rouge Garments UK highlighted the increasing desire for quality bondage gear in the mainstream and praised the bridge-building between experts from the adult industry and the kink scene uniting to provide a modern and educational approach for buyers.

Retailers Nice 'n' Naughty are no strangers to providing customer satisfaction. Founded 15 years ago , they were voted the UK 's Best Adult Retail Chain for six years and the only adult industry firm to receive the Investors in People accreditation. Director Trish Murray states that Nice 'n' Naughty was formed: 

"With one clear aim. To offer the customer a comfortable environment to shop that will stimulate their imaginations, without boundaries or taboos. All our members of staff have the knowledge and training to ensure the customer has the best advice and service in the adult industry".

On Nice 'n' Naughty teaming up with Rouge and Jackson Rocco , Trish Murray adds:

"We have a vast array of products that fulfil desires from vanilla to kink, and to be involved with The Book of Filthy Sex Games app, offers all its readers the perfect space and products to learn, explore and grow.  With the pending release of Fifty Shades of Grey, we have seen a further increase in the demand of quality BDSM items, and we have therefore decided to help our customer further explore their desires with this partnership".

As the fetish world can sometimes appear daunting to newcomers it makes sense for the positive kink championed by the man nicknamed the 'real-life Christian Grey' Jackson Rocco to ally with such established names in the adult industry. "I couldn't be happier', says Rocco:

"For the people I represent it's about care, education, affordability and quality. We have newbie's looking to try things out and experts looking to invest in well-made and robust products. The Rouge stuff looks and feels amazing, while Nice 'n' Naughty couldn't be more helpful. And as both firms are celebrated for their attention to detail and customer service, I have peace of mind that our campaign to give adult players the chance to realize their wildest dreams will continue to happen in the most supportive way possible. All round, this is a very cool project."

 Diary: The Institute of Sexology...

20th November 2014 to 20th September 2015. Studying the pioneers of the study of sex, London
Link Here
wellcome collection logo The Institute of Sexology
20 November 2014 to 20 September 2015
Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE

Wellcome Collection will explore the most publicly discussed of private acts with The Institute of Sexology , the first UK exhibition to bring together the pioneers of the study of sex. From Alfred Kinsey's complex coded questionnaires to Samoan jewellery to sex machines, the show investigates how the diverse research, methods and collections of sexologists have shaped our ever-evolving attitudes towards sexual behaviour and identity.

Featuring over 200 objects spanning art, rare archival material, erotica, film, photography, medical artefacts and ethnography, the exhibition moves between pathologies of perversion and contested ideas of normality as sex is observed, analysed and questioned. This is the first exhibition in a £ 17.5million expansion of Wellcome Collection and occupies a new gallery dedicated to year-long shows. The Institute of Sexology will evolve during its run; new commissions, live events, discussions and performances within the gallery space will animate an exhibition designed around visitor contribution and reflective personal experience. The show will form part of a Sexology Season of activity across the country.

The exhibition follows key sexologists including Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes, Alfred Kinsey, Wilhelm Reich, Magnus Hirschfeld, Margaret Mead, William Masters and Virginia Johnson and the team behind the present-day National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal). It traces the experiments and studies that lifted taboos in the pursuit of truths about sex and tells the remarkable personal stories of those whose questions made it a legitimate field for discussion and study. The show features works exploring sexual identity by artists including Zanele Muholi, John Stezaker, Sharon Hayes and Timothy Archibald. A new commission by Neil Bartlett will revisit the sex survey, celebrating and joining visitors with the hundreds of thousands of anonymous participants whose personal accounts underpin the study of sex.

The Institute of Sexology' is framed by named sites of research from labs to living rooms. The first section, The Library , highlights the systematic archiving and accumulation central to the their craft, including objects from Henry Wellcome's vast collection of erotica. Opening with the Nazi burning of archives amassed by Magnus Hirschfeld's Institut fu r Sexualwissenschaft in Berlin, 'The Library' explores how Hirschfeld's material on homosexuality, along with the library of sexual histories compiled by Havelock Ellis and the forensic legal cataloguing of sexual pathologies by Richard von Krafft-Ebing were assembled squarely against prevailing social codes.

The Consulting Room brings together unlikely bedfellows in Sigmund Freud and Marie Stopes who despite marked differences of approach and interest (Stopes warned of the harmful filthiness of psychoanalysis whilst campaigning for birth control and women's sexual rights) placed sex at the centre of their attempts to alleviate suffering and, through couch and clinic respectively, offered an intimate space of encounter which counselled sexual satisfaction as a key to human happiness. In Freud's psychoanalytic practice and Stopes' candid advice, the exhibition finds very different and influential paths towards freedom of sexual expression.

The work of Bronislaw Malinowski and Margaret Mead amongst Trobiand and Samoan peoples offered a striking and controversial corrective to the Victorian armchair anthropology which characterised these communities as primitive savages living in thrall to an impulsive nature. A section called The Tent explores the wide influence of Malinowski and Mead's conviction that the permissive sexual codes they encountered were an antidote to the deep-rooted anxieties attending sex in Western culture and served to highlight its repression of sex as a culturally determined experience.

The Classroom investigates Alfred Kinsey's journey from entomologist exploring the infinite individuality of gall wasps to obsessive compiler of sexual histories -- some 18,000 by his death in 1956. With extensive material from the Kinsey archive, the exhibition traces his revelation of sexual variety in mainstream post-war America, his lionising of data and empirical research and the explosive impact of his conclusions of sexual malleability at a time when sex was a barely mentionable subject.

The Lab points to the bespoke laboratory William Masters and Virginia Johnson secretly established at Washington University to observe and record hundreds of individuals having sex. Their measurements of real time physiology -- heart rate, lubrication, blood pressure, brain activity, organ size - during stimulation and orgasm, established the complexity and power of sexual experience, especially amongst women, and the exhibition explores how their findings and campaigns for gendered equality in climactic response fed into the zeitgeist of the 60's sexual revolution.
