BATH, England — Online retailer Lovehoney.co.uk has unveiled the Lovehoney Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator Gift Pack.
Lovehoney designers have responded to the popularity of Magic Wand with the release of its own-brand massager, the Lovehoney Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator Gift Pack — a luxury gift set in deep purple with a extension cable and lockable storage case.
Developed using anti-bacterial material, the discreet case contains a purple Deluxe Magic Wand with 1.8m cable, a G-spot stimulator attachment and a heart-shaped padlock.
“We wanted to give our most popular sex toy a luxurious makeover in time for Christmas. Creating gift-ready sets makes present-buying easier for the customer, and has worked fantastically for beauty brands,” Lovehoney head buyer Bonny Hall said. “The rich purple colour lends itself both to the overall quality of the gift set and Lovehoney as a brand. We’re delighted with the result.”
LONDON — Love Life Products has released a new series of self-lubricating sex toys called Twilight.
According to the company, the Twilight Series is aimed at those who prefer a darker side to their sex toys, with sultry new branding that’s completely different to the original Cascade Range. The packaging has also been revamped for Twilight, replacing its traditional box with a black satin bag complete with a beautiful metal Cascade logo all wrapped with a protective PP sleeve which contains all the product information.
The entire range of self-lubricating vibrators from LoveLife Products features unique qualities that complement the self-lubrication system including with intense multi-function vibrations, three styles, three colors, CE approved water-based lubricant, interchangeable silicone sleeves and a magnetic USB input for convenient charging.
“The original Cascade Range has been hugely successful over the past year and many women love the sumptuous branding and colors,” Sales and Marketing Director Sam Watts said. “However, we were always aware that some people prefer a darker, more sultry look and Twilight products have given us the opportunity to really add some extra sexuality and luxury to the range; with the beautiful black satin packaging we are sure that this will be a big hit!”
The Cascade Twilight series consists of three different shapes and is available to order now.

LOS ANGELES — Trigg Laboratories, makers of Wet personal lubricants, is supporting World AIDS Day, Dec. 1, by donating more than 5,000 safe sex kits and samples to local clinics in nine cities.
An estimated 34 million people worldwide have HIV, with more than 1.1 million in the U.S. Among these, more than 200,000—18 percent — don’t even know they’re infected, according to CDC estimates.
World AIDS Day, launched in 1988, was the first-ever global health day. The annual commemoration provides an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV, and honor the memory those who have died.
“We’re proud to support World AIDS Day,” said Michael Trigg, founder and CEO of Trigg Labs, makers of Wet Lubricant.
The company has sent more than 5,000 safe sex kits and/or Wet Platinum pouches (containing a condom and Wet Platinum Premium Silicone Lubricant) to help raise awareness in the U.S. about HIV/AIDS.
“We hope our safe sex kits will increase public awareness to reduce the stigma associated with HIV,” Trigg said. “It’s so important to get educated, tested, and to know your current HIV status. Information is power and with that information you can protect others and get the proper treatment and counseling to live long and healthy lives.”
Since its founding in 1989, Trigg Labs has donated millions of dollars (cash and product) to more than 300 non-profit organizations worldwide. This year alone, the company has donated more than 250,000 safe sex kits.
For World AIDS Day 2013, Trigg has donated kits to the following organizations for use in their ongoing safe sex education and counseling, community outreach and presentations:
Lawndale Christian Health Center in Chicago; Northwest AIDS Hope at the University of Washington; Windsor Regional Hospital HIV Care Program in Ontario; Stepping Stones of San Diego; The Tweakers Project; San Ysidro Health Center in San Ysidro, Calif., Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in Tulsa, OK., Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in Palm Springs, Calif.; and Maui AIDS Foundation in Hawaii.
“We need to remember that HIV/AIDS has not gone away, and in fact, it’s still increasing among certain groups,” said Lauren Streicher, MD, Associate Clinical Professor of OBGYN at the Northwestern University in Chicago. “According to CDC statistics from 2008 and 2010, the overall estimated number of HIV infections remained stable in every age group and in all racial/ethnic groups. There were decreases among women; including African American women. However burden is still high among African Americans and men who have sex with men (MSM). There were sharp increases in youth, especially young African American MSM.”
SAN JOSE, Calif. — LELO has announced the release of Hula Beads, remote-controlled pleasure beads that combine vibrations and rotations within.
LELO has reported a surge in holiday demand since it opened pre-orders on Hula Beads three weeks ago, with shipments to more than 5,000 stores worldwide starting from today onwards.
Designed to take the traditional pleasure beads concept to a new level, Hula Beads are the first
product of their kind to combine a top rotating bead and bottom vibrating bead, the company says, with eight varied stimulation modes controlled via wireless remote.
The company claims that the secret to Hula Beads’ long-term success will come from their versatility, with LELO proposing at least two ways in which the new product can be worn. On the one hand, customers are encouraged to start by inserting on the top bead first, which rotates to bring pleasure to the labia, while the bottom bead remains outside to bring powerful vibrations up towards the clitoris.
Alternatively, customers are able wear Hula Beads in a similar way to egg massagers while controlling stimulation patterns via wireless remote. In this case, the rotating bead creates movements to pleasure the G-Spot, complemented by vibrations. The Hula Beads’ remote control hold a wireless range of up to 122 feet.
“Pleasure beads or ben wa balls have been around in one form or another for thousands of years,” said Donna Faro, LELO USA director of sales and marketing, “but with the launch of HULA Beads, LELO takes this product into a whole new territory; the pleasures on offer are something customers are going to find very hard to resist.”
LONDON — A U.K.-based duo has debuted Pulse, a male sex toy that has been dubbed a “guybrator,” the Wired.co.uk reported.
Unlike its female-geared equivalent, Pulse employs distinct technology called Penile Vibratory Stimulation (PVS), which uses piston-movement to generate high-amplitude oscillations, rather than the typical low-amplitude variety of most personal massagers.
Co-creator Adam Lewis said he was inadvertently tipped off about PVS when he was doing online research for his product and discovered medical reports about the health benefits of oscillation treatment for people with spinal cord injuries.
Essentially, vibrations directed at the frenulum area of the penis can facilitate ejaculation — a perk for disabled men looking to impregnate their partners. Lewis decided to incorporate the concept, but improve the design to make it sexy and drastically alter the purpose.
“We see Pulse as more of a lifestyle product that was aspirational,” Lewis said. “It looks more like a speaker than a masturbation aid.”
While Wired reporter Olivia Solon conceded that Pulse doesn’t look overtly sexual, she had her own distinct impression: “The device itself can only be described as looking like a Darth Vader helmet for your, er, helmet,” she wrote. “It is black in color and features the PulsePlate on the base, with two ‘wings’ that curve upwards around the shaft.”
According to Lewis, he considers the first generation of Pulse the “iPhone 1” and has much imagined future variety, including a version that’s 100 percent waterproof and similar products using high-amplitude oscillations for women and couples.
For more information about Pulse, visit Lewis’ company website www.HotOctopuss.com. The product can be purchased on the site for £69.
SAN FERNANDO, Calif. — Honey’s Place raised and donated $14,000 in its first participation in Walk for Hope at City of Hope in Duarte, Calif. on Sunday, Nov. 3.

Especially since our founder, Helene ‘Honey’ Kusens, lost her battle with breast cancer in 2002 which touches us personally.”
Olive added, “We want to thank our team, donators, and supporters in this very momentous event. Walk for Hope was a gathering where walkers were able to support each other while walking either the 2K or 5K. We definitely want to support the cause and found it moving.”
LOS ANGELES — California Exotic Novelties announced that it has raised $36,300 in the fight against women’s cancers in the “2013 Walk for Hope.”

BATH, England — U.K. sex toy retailer Lovehoney has launched the third-generation Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator — the pocket-sized Sqweel Go.
According to the company, following the success of Sqweel 2, Lovehoney has already experienced high demand for its miniature counterpart. Bulk orders for Sqweel Go have been taken from the U.K., Netherlands, South Africa, Norway, Italy and Russia after a successful trade debut at eroFame in Hanover last month.
At three inches in length, Sqweel Go features a wheel of ten rotating silicone tongues to simulate oral sex. Unlike its predecessors, Sqweel Go has six speeds and patterns. It is the first member of the Sqweel family to feature USB rechargeable technology.
“It was a very natural progression for us to develop a new Sqweel toy which was smaller, more eco-friendly and quieter,” Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford said. “It’s great to watch the Sqweel family evolve to meet customer’s needs — we know people are increasingly looking for discreet, rechargeable toys and Sqweel Go is the perfect travel toy as often people think it looks like a mini fan!”
The original Sqweel was first produced in 2009 as the winning entry to Lovehoney’s annual Design a Sex Toy competition and was later re-worked as Sqweel 2 in 2011. Sqweel has sold more than 55,000 units to date, earning Irish inventor Trev Murphy more than £100,000.
The Sqweel Go retails at $59.99 and is available from Lovehoney.com in three colors: pink, white and purple. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for wholesale orders.
CHATSWORTH, Calif. — After its successful debut at ANME and eroFame, Pipedream’s collection of Ceramix Pleasure Pottery is now in stock and shipping.
Made from natural, recyclable materials, the hand-crafted massagers are body-safe, hypoallergenic and nonporous.
The range includes six vibrating and six non-vibrating pieces that are “whimsically” hand-glazed and infused with Yttrium for increased strength and polish. Yttrium, the company says, is the same ingredient used by high-end jewelers.
“From incredibly smooth anal plugs to ribbed G-Spot stimulators, you simply cannot achieve these types of designs and textures with any other material,” Pipedreams said in a release, referring to the collection’s ceramic base.
Ceramic, Pipedream said in the same release, is the only material that can quickly attain a desired temperature and maintain it for up to twenty minutes — the same way a coffee mug keeps your beverage warm — making the collection ideal for those looking to explore the possibilities of temperature play in the bedroom.
Because the pieces are hollow and feature a silicone plug at the base, they can be filled with water for an immediate warming or cooling effect.
“When our customers feel these they are blown away. It really is a very tactile experience,” Ceramix designer Kristian Broms said. “The vibrating models are incredibly quiet and powerful, and the non-vibrators are so hot and so cold. Once you hold them in your hands, you’ll understand that ‘feeling is believing.’”
