CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Classic Erotica debuted a new comprehensive catalog, as well as several new items.
The catalog, which features a magazine-style cover, features a new format that was designed to educate customers as well as captivate them visually, the company says.
During the recent ANME Show, Classic Erotica also unveiled several new items from the brands Crazy Girl, Max 4 Men and Body Boudoir. The company’s Coochy shave cream debuted a new fragrance, a new look and a line extension called the Coochy Pretty Parts Collection.
ANME also marked the first public appearance by Classic Erotica and Jelique as a “hot new couple.” Classic Erotica acquired Jelique earlier this year and is now offering a Classic Erotica-branded Jelique catalog.
“Every show we do is an opportunity to reconnect with existing customers and introduce ourselves to new customers,” Classic Erotica Sales Manager Lynn Swanson said. “Our booth is always busy, but this year was over the top. Traffic in the booth and feedback was phenomenal. It’s always a great time getting to do what we love to do each year.”
Classic Erotica President Loren Levy said, “Every year we try to go above and beyond our customers expectations to bring them new, exciting products and innovative ways to sell and promote each new item and this year was no exception.”
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Sportsheets International products have been featured in a number of mainstream media outlets, the company announced.
The August Issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine chose Sportsheets’ Vibrating Mesh Sponge from its Sex In The Shower line as its Sex Toy of the Month.
“What’s the best sex toy that no one would ever guess is a sex toy? A bullet vibe that hides in a loofah of course. Just pop the mini vibe out to get your H2Orgasm on (alone or with a partner). Then hang it back up next to your shampoo. No one will ever know,” Cosmo wrote.
“The timing for the Vibrating Mesh Sponge being chosen as Sex Toy of the Month in Cosmo couldn’t have been better,” said Julie Stewart, President of Sportsheets. “The issue hit the streets and arrived in mailboxes just days before the ANME Show started so we had everyone scouring every gas station and 7/11 in the Valley trying to find as many copies as possible. It is always an honor to be mentioned in Cosmopolitan; but to be named Sex Toy of the Month is one of the biggest honors a novelty company can achieve.”
Sportsheets said it was also featured in Cosmo earlier this year at January’s ANME Show when a number of their products were featured in an article outlining the best toys to use to create a ‘Fifty Shades of Grey” fantasy. The six-page article also quoted Stewart.
“There is nothing better than having customers coming to your booth and seeing a copy of the largest distributed women’s magazine in the world sitting at your booth with your product proudly published in that magazine,” Stewart said.
Sportsheets also landed coverage on online news site Bustle in an article entitled “5 Cheap Sex Toys For Better Orgasms, Because Babes On A Budget Deserve To Get Off Too.” Out of the five sex toys selected by writer Rachel Khona, two came from Sportsheets.
The number three toy in the article came from Sportsheets’ Sex In The Shower Collection. “If you don’t have a tub like Beyonce’s, your best attempts at surfboarding may have been an exercise in futility. Not to fear, even the most un-athletic of you can feel like shower goddesses with the help of this handy dandy shower footrest. Because showers are not just for getting clean ladiezzz. Stick one of these babies on the wall of your shower and use it to prop your foot up or grip onto for easier action. Tada. You could be a regular acrobat with one of these,” Khona said.
Coming in at number four was Sportsheets’ Back Beginner’s Handcuff. Khona wrote, “Pretend you’ve been arrested and locked to your bed with these cheap and comfy handcuffs by Sportsheets. They cost as much as three bevs from the coffee shop, so if you can chill on that caffeine habit you can easily afford these. Plus you’ll be way less jittery in the morning. Win-win, bishes.”
“We always love reading the love, sex, dating and relationship articles on Bustle and when we saw the headline for the article we were so excited to see which toys had made the cut. For us to have not one, but two toys on their list absolutely blew us away,” said Emily Silva, Sportsheets’ product specialist.

SEATTLE — Kheper Games has announced the release of Adult Charades and The World’s Most Ridiculous Drinking Games.
Both games are now shipping and will be formally launched at the upcoming ANME show along with nine other new items from Kheper Games, the company says.
Adult Charades is an adult party game that is designed towards couples or a group of friends wanting to play a risqué party game where drinking is not required. The game includes 480 Charades, a timer and score pad. Players take turns trying to get as many charades guessed correctly from a card of six charades in one minute. Examples include: “Horny Devil,” “Impotent,” and “The Little Man in the Boat.”
The World’s Most Ridiculous Drinking Games is a collection of 30 games from around the world. For example, Freckles from Lithuania has players squashing desserts and Opossum from New Zealand has players doing contests similar to the ones that the country’s locals competition to see who will be the last to fall out of a tree while drinking.
“In addition to enjoying games with their significant others, adult store customers also want to have a good time with their friends,” Kheper Games CEO Brian Pellham said. “These unique and hilarious games will be the hit of any party and any store’s adult games section. They’re just fun!”

PENNSAUKEN, N.J. — Veteran adult distributor Williams Trading Company now has the Tantus Uncut line of silicone dildos in stock and available for immediate shipment.
Part of Tantus Dual Density O2 line, the Uncut line of products are sculpted, uncircumcised dildos featuring a soft outer layer and a firm inner core. Together with detailed skin texture, pores, veins and wrinkles, the Uncut line looks and feels real.
Uncuts are made from Tantus’ unique formula of ultra premium silicone. Each dildo is hypoallergenic, hygienic, boilable, bleachable and dishwasher-safe.
According to the company, the process used to create the skin-like texture of the silicone, in addition to the actual wrinkles, creates small indentations that are normal for production — the sex toy is not porous in any way.
“Tantus is one of the few adult novelty manufacturers that has a cult brand following,” said Erin V., Williams Trading marketing and vendor liaison. “The Uncut line of dildos is exactly what loyal customers expect from Tantus.”
Each Uncut dildo is harness compatible and anal-sex safe. All Tantus silicone products are phthalate-free, latex-free and made in the U.S.
Williams Trading University (WTU), the free eLearning platform exclusive to Williams Trading customers, supports all Tantus products. Retailers can log in to WTU and learn about what makes Tantus silicone stand out in the marketplace. Upon completing the Tantus-sponsored course, participants are eligible to receive a free silicone cock ring as a premium for earning their certification.
For Uncut product and ordering information, call a Williams sales representative at (800) 423-8587 or visit WTUlearn.com.
WASSERBILLIG, Luxembourg — The pjur Group today announced four new products aimed at consumers that put a premium on non-irritating, premium lubes preferably “made in Germany.”
For the vegan consumer group, the company has debuted the pjur med VEGAN glide.”The increased demand for such products spurred the development of pjur med VEGAN glide,” managing director Alexander Giebel said.
The product contains only vegan ingredients and was not tested on animals. The formula also uses no fragrances, parabens, preservatives or glycerin. The water-based pjur med VEGAN glide is pH-neutral and suitable for all skin types. The added moisture offers long-lasting lubrication. “The development of this product is an important step for us as a con-sumer-oriented enterprise, which allows us to offer a personal lubricant to this consumer group that meets their needs,” Giebel added.
Also announced was the pjur med SOFT glide — a personal lubricant with soothing jojoba oil. Jojoba is known in the cosmetics industry for its beneficial properties: it boosts skin elasticity, con-tains vitamin E and provitamin A, nourishes and protects sensitive, chapped and dry skin, and has an anti-inflammatory and soothing effect. The product is silicone-based and free of preservatives — which pjur said are also important criteria for the health conscious consumer target group.
The next new personal lubricant is the pjur med SENSITIVE glide for extremely sensitive skin. The product is free of all additives, contains no preservatives, parabens or glycerin but — like all pjur personal lubricants — it has excellent lubricant properties. “Many customers have requested a pjur med product with no additives. We are now meeting this need with pjur med SENSITIVE glide,” Giebel said.
In addition to the new personal lubricants, pjur has developed the PRO-LONG delay serum for men that has no numbing ingredients. After applying to the penis, the company said it forms an invisible film that reduces sensitivity and can help prevent premature ejaculation. The product is safe to use with condoms and can be used in combination with pjur personal lubricants. Giebel explained, “In Asia, but also in Europe and other markets, the demand for delay products for men that are available without a prescription is on the rise. Our pjur med PRO-LONG serum is specifically tailored to this demand.”
All of the new personal lubricants are available in 1.5 ml or 2 ml sachets and new POS materials such as flyers, brochures and web banners are available now. The lubes are available in the 100 ml size bottles, while the serum is available in a 20 ml pump dispenser.
The products will be available beginning in July.
