If you have a press release pertaining to adult industry news and you would like it to be published at CaraSutra, please contact me here. There is a fee for the publication of adult industry press releases which are advertorial in nature and intent.
If you are an erotic writer looking for promotion of your catalogue of books or a new release in particular, there are other ways I can help you. There is the Erotic Author Spotlight Series where you get a dedicated post about you and your published works, as well as the opportunity to have your books reviewed by the Pleasure Panel. There is no charge for either of these options for published erotic authors. Please contact me to find out how to arrange. On a similar note I run the Sex Blogger Spotlight Series for those with an adult related or sex toy review blog (only those without an associated sex toy shop or commercial business attached to it).
If there’s a subject relating to adult industry news you’d like to see me writing about here, do let me know and I will do my best to fit it into my writing schedule.
UK cosmetic, health product and pharmaceutical retailer Superdrug have released the results of a new survey discussing erectile dysfunction – from a woman’s perspective. The survey aims to help women understand ED and open up conversations between partners who are dealing with the issue first-hand.
Buzzfeed published a piece entitled Here’s How To Shop For Sex Toys Without Being Embarrassed which was put together by Emma Cooke. This article has advice and tips on how to shop for sex toys from three experts in the world of sex toy shopping: Rose Compton from Harmony, the multi ETO award winning Renée Denyer from Sh Women’s Erotic Emporium and Eve Fifer from Ann Summers.
Yep, because apparently Michigan USA need this pointing out. You’d think the differences between consensual human fuckery, in all it’s beautiful and kinky forms, and fucking animals, which cannot be consensual, would be patently obvious to anyone. Apparently not in Michigan, where a bill is being put forwards (SB19) which could lead to the outlawing of not just sex with dogs & animals, but also consensual anal sex and oral sex between adult humans. Grouped together as one and the same motion.
If you’ve been following my Twitter and reviews you’ll know how much I love the Sheets of San Francisco Fluidproof Sheets. Well now, you don’t have to splash out (heh) on a full sheet without so much as a feel for yourself, you can get a Sheets of San Francisco Sample in the post so you can fondle before you buy til your heart’s content.
It wasn’t pleasant to see these two giants of the luxury sex toy manufacturing and sales world, We-Vibe and LELO, publicly scrapping over patents. Sure, a patent needs protecting and defending, but hopefully now everyone can move forwards with developing the technologically advanced pleasure products we’ve come to expect from these well-known and trusted brands.
So today I found out about Mattel’s Barbie makeover. Barbie’s unrealistic figure has been a cause of concern to women for years, not just mothers of their own sons and daughters who might play with Barbie dolls, but any woman disappointed in Mattel for presenting such a dangerous body shape as some kind of feminine ‘ideal’. It wasn’t just dangerous to the young girls playing with Barbie dolls who might think the stick-skinny figure is the only acceptable norm, or boys being conditioned to think that this figure is the only acceptable ‘attractive’ woman shape – it was an insult to women everywhere.
As there seems to be some mystery surrounding how to publish something from someone’s (my) blog without them (me) being annoyed about it and shouting ‘content theft!’, I thought I’d write about how anyone can put my content on their site and be assured I will have a smiley face, not that frowny-faced ‘take it down immediately or imma DMCA your ass’ look quite a few companies have left me with lately.
Sexpo isn’t a completely new venture, having enjoyed several successful shows around the world such as the US and Australia. November 2015 was the turn of the UK’s capital, and London welcomed Sexpo wholeheartedly and hoped we had a worthy predecessor to the much-missed Erotica show.

Movember is again on us and you’re going to start seeing the scraggly, the bushy, the unkempt and the styled. I’m not talking about the resurgence in bush, I’m referring to the mo’s that will soon crawl across faces to mark this now annual tradition of awareness on prostate (and other) health concerns.

Our trip to Erofame Germany 2015 (the European adult industry trade show; find the official website here) was more fun and eventful than ever before. It was also the first trip out of the country for my partner Darren & I together (aw) so we had double cause for celebration. I’m really pleased that Darren (find his website at Sablecraft) was able to come with me on this occasion, not only because I miss him so much when I’m away but also because he’s quite renowned by this stage as being a fantastic IT consultant and web dev for the industry.
If you mingle in sex toy circles (would they be called cock rings?) then you should, by now, have heard of the new sex toy about to be released by Doxy Massager: Doxy Skittle.
The original Doxy Wand vibrator is one of my top two favourite vibrators and the most powerful vibrator I have ever used or owned.
