NEW YORK — Nasstoys is gearing up for Valentine’s Day with a gift guide for consumers.
For the ladies Nasstoys recommends three of its vibes that are “beautifully packaged and easy to wrap for a perfect surprise,” the company said. The new Surenda Curve Teaser is a silent, all silicone vibrator designed to imitate the tongue movements of oral sex. The Curve Teaser has 10 functions and is fully waterproof. The Ravishing Rabbit Lover, which is available in pink and purple, features dual motors, 10 functions and is also waterproof.
For couples, Nasstoys suggests its exclusive retro-style Ladybug Tickler that’s 100 percent silicone providing external clitoral stimulation but can also be worn comfortably during intercourse.
“The tongue-like Surenda Curve Teaser is our most popular new luxury silicone item and the retro style Ladybug Teaser has been very popular since we reintroduced it with wonderful feedback from customers,” said Kathryn Hartman, Nasstoys’ director of marketing.
For men, Nasstoys offers a range of male products including the new Maxx Men Blue Lips Vibrating Cocktie and Ram Squeezer, which is a Nasstoys Top 20 best-selling item, according to the company. The final pick for men is the Nasstoys Travel Pump, a compact travel pump that offers three suction settings, interchangeable suction bases and packs away discreetly in what appears to be a zippered shaving kit bag.
“We have so many industry wide best-sellers for men that it was difficult to pick just three,” Hartman said. “Our Travel Pump is the perfect gift for any guy and continues to be a bestseller. The Travel Pump can be discreetly carried and stored in its compact bag with all the accessories.”
Nasstoys says kits make ideal gifts for couples and suggests the “fun and inexpensive” Naughty Pleasures Kit and Stimulator Kit. The Nasstoys Naughty Pleasures Kit includes a four-function vibrating bullet and balls set with a dual jack controller and a four-function waterproof G-spot vibe. The new Stimulator Kit is a beginners kit that combines a bullet with 10 rhythms and three interchangeable silicone sleeves that can be used to stimulate both the genitals and nipples.
“Our new Stimulator Kit is the only travel-sized weekend kit on the market that also has a nipple stimulator sleeve that surrounds the entire nipple with delicious vibrations,” Hartman said. “We have seen an increased demand for kits and this compact quality kit will exceed your Valentine’s day expectations.”
LOS ANGELES – ROCK’N Products has introduced Rock Out, a hangover defense and recovery formula, as the latest addition to the lineup of Rock On shot drinks.
According to the company, the new addition is designed to give adult retailers new add-on profits by capitalizing on weekend traffic of couples, college kids and party-goers.
The latest addition is part of the new direction of Rock On shots to offer a line of fun, hip add-on sales for shoppers and complement its Rock On sexual vitality shot, the company said.
“The Rock Out shots have already become so popular we anticipate stores will actually gain foot traffic from couples, college kids and party goers that will make a special trip for them. It’s the perfect synergy for the stores clientele,” ROCK’N Products President Keith Caggiano said. “We launched at the recent adult awards and tradeshows and were blown away by how many people came up to us the next day telling us they couldn’t believe how great they felt considering what they drank the night before.”
Rock Out is a natural hangover defense and recovery shot offering the benefits of an assortment of wellness-boosting vitamins C, B6 and B12 and antioxidants.

The company’s slogan is “Rock Out Before You Go Out.”
This latest addition falls in line with the company’s mantra of “Rock Life: mind, body and spirit”. The range comes in sleek all-black bottles with the new Rock On “Horn Hand” logo brightly color-coded for each need. The new product names are designed to be self-explanatory, the company says.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Sexual wellness and intimacy took center stage as the second annual Los Angeles edition of the Sexual Health Expo drew thousands of attendees to the Universal City Hilton hotel this weekend.
Once again drawing sizeable crowds on both days of the event, SHE L.A. attendees represented a wide demographic, consisting of men and women of ages ranging from early 20s to early 80s, of all ethnic backgrounds and sexual preferences.
The Pleasure Chest returned as the Sex Ed Sponsor of the event; this time splitting up its slate of workshops into two groups — Skills/Technique and Relationship/Kink. The sex educators on tap offered tips and advice for exploring fetishes and alternative lifestyles and how to improve one’s performance and experiences in the bedroom.
“I think it’s so great to have an event to showcase Pleasure Chest’s full range of classes — from acro yoga to dating workshops,” said Sarah Tomchesson, The Pleasure Chest’s head of business operations. “It’s great that we have the opportunity to showcase our range of amazing educators. We’re bringing sex ed to the masses.”
Each session drew standing room only crowds that were interactive with audience participation and some that were eye-catching, such as the session “Acro Yoga With Miyoko Rifkin.” in which she and her partner demonstrated the physical practice and introduced the audience to “inverted sex.”
Following her “Big, Beautiful Sex With Elle Chase” session on body image, the sexpert revealed to the audience the upcoming release of her book, “101 Body Positive Positions to Empower Your Sex Life.” The book is slated for release in January 2017.
Dr. Jessica O’Reilly — who on Friday was named Sexpert of the Year at the 2016 XBIZ Awards — did double duty at SHE L.A. with two Astroglide-sponsored courses. She hosted “Rock Her World” on Saturday to offer tips on performing oral sex on a female, and on Sunday she hosted “Blow His Mind.”
SHE spokesperson Emily Morse hosted a live edition of her “Sex With Emily” podcast on stage during the event. She welcomed sexperts Jennie Steinberg, Dirty Lola, Mollena and others, before welcoming questions from the audience.
Additional SHE L.A. speakers included Lynn Rosenberg, Koko, Psalm Isadora, Jennie Steinberg, Dr. Tamara Griffin, Dirty Lola, Amy Jo Goddard, Erin Tillman, Mollena Williams, Charlie Glickman, Tristan Taormino, Dr. Hernando Chaves, Stephanie Berman, Dr. Patti Britton, Rachel Kramer Brussel, Reid Mihalko, Allison Moon, Dr. Chris Donaghue and Dr. Zhana Vrangalova.
Among the returning SHE L.A. exhibitors was We-Vibe, which also was the Registration Sponsor of SHE L.A.
We-Vibe showcased its latest releases, the Nova and Rave vibes. Each design is compatible with We-Vibe’s WeConnect app.
“We help couples keep connected,” We-Vibe’s Michelle Treyes said. “All of our products promote sexual wellness with medical-grade body-safe silicone products that are very ergonomic.”
Sybian also returned to SHE L.A. to showcase its latest offerings, which included new silicone attachments called the Orb and G-Wave.
Another returning exhibitor was Destiny Candles by Karen Michelle. According to Michelle, the oil-based candle is often used as a beauty aid, leaving the skin soft as it is massaged into the skin. The candle also can be used to enhance intimacy between couples as a lickable erotic massage oil. The latest scent to be added to the collection is Blood Orange. Each candle also contains a piece a jewelry that is revealed when the all of the candle’s oil is consumed.
“We’ve been featured on ‘The Talk,’ ‘Wendy Williams, E! News, and a bunch more,” she said.
Crystal Delights showcased its range of U.S.-made handcrafted glass toys. The company also offers sexual wellness products, such as its range of Pacik dilators, which the company made in collaboration with Dr. Peter Pacik.
Crystal Delights owner Shellie told XBIZ that the company has been offering the Pacik dilators online for several years. “This lets us know that this is an issue that a lot of people don’t talk about,” she said. “They’re self-treating with our dilators at home.”
According to Shellie, the dilators can be used to treat Vaginismus, as well as for post-op genital reassignment.
SHE L.A. marked Curve Novelties’ first-ever consumer expo. Curve Novelties’ Patricia Ratner said attendees were mostly interested in the company’s smaller, beginner products.
“We’ve been getting a great response from consumers,” Ratner said. “It’s interesting to where what they have to say. Everyone seems mainly interested in our smaller toys and non-vibrating items. Couples appear very interested in anal sex and it’s fun to see their interaction about it.”
Also exhibiting was Psalm Isadora, who showcased her new Tantra videos and multiple orgasm videos in her women-only and couples series, and offered information on her live events and women’s Tantra retreats. She told XBIZ that she has a reality T.V. show coming out that she compares to a real-life “Sex and the City.”
“It’s so great that sex is going mainstream,” she said. “People learn through osmosis.”
In addition to pleasure products, SHE L.A. also introduced attendees to range of services, such as Rose into Wellness. Led by Jade Rose and Mitchell Dick, the company discussed its unique offerings that included quantum reflex analysis, emotional repolarization therapy, and relationship and intimacy coaching. At the event, they offered attendees the opportunity to sign up for a free phone consultation.
OneTaste, a company that teaches the practice of orgasmic meditation (OM), also was at SHE L.A. to sign up participants for its OM classes in Los Angeles. Orgasmic meditation is a mindfulness practice that involves clit stimulation. In sessions, participants are paired up with one practitioner stroking the clit of the other to develop a connective resonance between them. Nancy, a practitioner from OneTaste, said OM has changed her life.
“It teaches you what you want,” she said. “The willingness to participate in OM will open you up to so many other experiences.”
LOS ANGELES — IM TOY is pleased to be among leading brands exhibiting at the next edition of the highly anticipated consumer event, Sexual Health Expo (SHE) in Los Angeles.
IM TOY will be exhibiting their Candy product, a high-tech kegel exercising ball for women.

The kegel ball features beautiful designs and comes with a discreet case that provides total sterilization. For more information about this product, click here.
“We’re excited to participate in the SHE Expo to teach women the importance of kegel exercises.

It counters negative health issues, and as a bonus greatly enhances sexual satisfaction. It’s a luxurious treat for women.”
Set for Jan. 16-17, SHE L.A. will feature the refreshing, dynamic format that has made it a resounding success nationwide.

BATH, England — Lovehoney was crowned the U.K.’s Favorite Lingerie Retailer at the U.K. Lingerie Awards, beating out competition from the likes of Agent Provocateur, Debenhams, Tallulah Lingerie and Victoria’s Secret.
According to the company, more than 4,000 votes were cast to determine the winner.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have been named the UK’s Favorite Lingerie Retailer,” Lovehoney Lingerie Designer Heather Mercer said. “Even though Lovehoney has not always been known for lingerie this is all changing, and with the launch of our own lingerie brand, Lovehoney Lingerie, there are exciting things to come!”
Lovehoney reports that about one third of its sales comes from lingerie. The company also said its lingerie sales are up 47 percent year on year, with growth set to continue. In 2014, Lovehoney launched its own lingerie brand designed for women of all shapes and sizes go from 6-24.
After one year, the company says Lovehoney Lingerie is now the best-selling lingerie brand on Lovehoney’s website. Sales have been boosted with successful celebrity endorsements from MTV stars, Chloe Goodman from “Ex On The Beach” and Marnie Simpson from “Geordie Shore.” In December, Lovehoney also launched LHM, its first, own-brand range of male underwear.
“We’re especially excited to win this award because it was voted for by the public,” Lovehoney Lingerie Category Manager Gemma Pestel, said. “Lovehoney’s customers are fantastic and we’re so pleased that they’re responding to our investment in Lovehoney Lingerie and third party brands. We’ve got some big plans for 2016 — watch this space!”
Lovehoney says it is anticipating lingerie sales to peak in the two weeks prior to Valentine’s Day.
LOS ANGELES — Attendees at the upcoming Sexual Health Expo (SHE) on Jan. 16-17 in Los Angeles looking for a way to spice up their sex lives with anal play are in for a real treat as sex and relationship coach Charlie Glickman tackles the touchy subject in his popular “Amazing Anal Sex” seminar as part of Sex Ed sponsor The Pleasure Chest’s enlightening sex ed lineup.
The certified sexuality educator and internationally acclaimed speaker will answer the tough questions about anal sex including the best way to make sure both partners have a great time, the three key ingredients to pleasurable anal play, how to avoid common problems, important safety tips and more.
As a sex and relationship coach and a somatic sex educator, Glickman said he talks with a lot of people about their sex lives. Many of them have questions, fantasies, or concerns about anal play, and while it can be “a delicious pleasure,” it’s something that works best when folks know what they’re doing. Unfortunately, a lot of people simply copy what they see in porn and that can get them into trouble, Glickman warned, and added that learning anal sex from porn is like learning to drive from a car chase movie — someone is going to get hurt.
Glickman will talk about everything people need to know to make anal play pleasurable, exciting and safe. The educator said it’s one of his favorite things to teach because it’s the little things that make such a big difference. Plus, he said he loves helping people discover their full erotic potential, including those parts of their bodies and their sexualities that they didn’t know they’d enjoy.
And SHE is the perfect place to learn.
“The Expo is an amazing opportunity for people to find out about the latest new toys, get some great information from the educators, and meet lots of amazing sex positive folks. I’ve had the pleasure of speaking at every SHE so far and I’m really impressed with the quality of the events,” Glickman said.
As a top educator in the field, Glickman’s focus includes sex and shame, sex-positivity, queer issues, masculinity and gender, communities of erotic affiliation, and many sexual and relationship practices. He is also the co-author of “The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure: Erotic Exploration for Men and Their Partners.”
Tickets to the show are now on sale, courtesy of Registration Sponsor We-Vibe. For more information, visit SexualHealthExpo.com.
