CHICAGO — The inventor of the Autoblow 2, a crowdfunded oral sex masturbator for men, is hosting a new campaign for “Slaphappy,” a woman’s device that he calls “the Swiss Army Knife of vibrators.”
The campaign features an infomercial style pitch video in which inventor Brian Sloan explains the virtues of the new flat flexible vibrator and compares it with regular rigid vibrators, that he said, are for “rigid people.”
After raising nearly $300,000 on Indiegogo to create the Autoblow 2, Sloan said he received numerous requests from women asking him to build something equally unique and functional for them. Many emails mentioned that different feelings required different toys — meaning that women had to own a drawer full of vibrators to experience the full range of possible sensations.
“After reading their emails, the style of toy I needed to invent became clear. Women wanted a single vibrator that could quickly change its shape,” Sloan said.
He added, “Plus, with the whole ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ craze going on, I thought why not also make it something people could be spanked with. Most couples enjoy a bit of spanking so I decided to make the first vibrator that could also be used as a spanking implement.”
Slaphappy will retail for $65 and is set to launch in the spring of 2015. Indiegogo backers, will receive a discount and delivery is guaranteed by Valentine’s Day. As the inventor notes in his pitch video, “Guys, she can’t fuck herself with flowers.”

LOS ANGELES — BearManor Media, the publishing company responsible for launching the autobiographies of John Holmes, Seka, Howie Gordon and other true “golden blue” royalty, has announced the upcoming addition of Serena Czarnecki to its roster of classic adult memoirists.
“Bright Lights, Lonely Nights: The Memories of Serena, Porn Star of the 1970’s” is set to release on Thanksgiving through BearManor Bare, BearManor’s new exclusively adult category.
Czarnecki — AKA Serena Blacklord, Serena Blacquelord, Linda Broome — was active in the adult industry from 1970 to 1984 during the so-called Golden Age of porn.
“I was over the moon when I heard Serena was writing a book,” BearManor founder Ben Ohmart told XBIZ. “It’s the kind of thing all classic adult film lovers will want to read. I gobbled it up in a day.”
In the introduction of “Bright Lights, Lonely Nights,” California-native Czarnecki insists that she came from a good home and a good family, never experienced abuse or drug addiction, and enjoyed growing up as a flower child during the 60’s and 70’s. She was influenced by uninhibited spirits like Jim Morrison, Gloria Steinem, Janis Joplin, and Marilyn Monroe, who began posing for Playboy in the 60’s.
When Czarnecki came of age, many forms of sexual expression, including homosexuality and sodomy, were outlawed or shunned as taboo. Inspired by the sexual revolution that was taking hold of America and breaking down its strict social mores, she decided to actively fight repression with no-holds-barred participation.
“With no restraints, I dove into waiting arms and was pulled to the river of brilliance and the madness of movie making,” Czarnecki writes in the introduction. “I was glad to be going anywhere. In the mid 1970’s, my BODY was the Art. I wanted pleasure. Painting and poetry could wait.” She notes that her main handicap in life was her long-undiagnosed bi-polar disorder.
Spanning more than 400 pages, “Bright Lights, Lonely Nights” details Czarnecki’s early life, her entry into and experience in porn, as well as chapters about her romantic partners and brushes with famous people (Timothy Leary, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Jim Henson, among others). It also includes photos and poems written by Czarnecki herself.
“Melding natural beauty and raw sexuality with an intuitive, ethereal sensitivity, Serena created an abiding presence on screen,” writes Jill C. Nelson, author of “Golden Goddesses: 25 Legendary Women of Classic Erotic Cinema.” “Almost 40 years after her film debut, exquisitely characterized by quiet wisdom and honesty, Serena continues to mystify and titillate fans. In her ‘memory book’ Serena has crafted an odyssey of events, ruminations and images reflecting an inspired age of liberation.”

Fans can rest assured of Czarnecki’s appreciation throughout the years. She give them the first ink in her dedication section: “If you came while watching a porn film between 1975 and 1984, chances are you were jacking off to me. So I dedicate this book to you.”
