Sex News: Helping Hot Octopuss Develop New Women’s Sex Toys

Easter Monday is usually a day of relaxation and possibly regrets about how much chocolate has been consumed in a mere couple of days. Although there was a touch of the latter, I certainly didn’t have a relaxing morning last Monday – it was really quite exciting. I was on my way to London to meet up with Hot Octopuss, makers of the award winning Pulse sex toy, in order to form part of a consultation group for ongoing product development. Staying at a hotel on Monday afternoon and night in the nearby Elstree area was heavenly, not least because of the sumptuous Laura Ashley Manor Hotel that my driver had selected for us to stay at. It really is a gorgeous hotel, set in plenty of well-tended woodland and with a rural charm which makes it seem even more of a treasure, being so close to London.

Event Report: Over 300 attendees enjoy Erotic World Book Day party celebrations

Erotic World Book Day was 5 March and as part of the celebrations there was an unashamedly spectacular party on Facebook. From 7pm UK time until well past midnight, every hour saw a new host share a wealth of tasty entertainment for the party attendees to enjoy. Were you in attendance? Were you one of the 325 people who came to our party? You really should have been there. With shared excerpts from some of the top names in the world of erotic fiction, cyber cocktails, sexy chat, best-dressed competitions and over £1,500 of prizes to win, this really was an unmissable adult event. Erotic World Book Day originator Emily Dubberley declared the party officially open at 7pm with an overview of the night’s festivities and the charity fundraising reasons behind the celebrations.

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Review by Cara Sutra

By Cara Sutra: I don’t care what you think about Fifty Shades of Grey. By the time the Fifty Shades of Grey Movie was released in UK cinemas I was bouncing with excitement about going to see it. Not because I’m the world’s biggest 50 Shades fan. Not because I find Christian Grey knicker-gushingly hot. Because I wanted to be able to make up my own damn mind without being torn one way or the other by other people’s opinions.

The Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Release Day Review

I hated the Fifty Shades of Grey book, there I said it. I thought it was a boring story with tame sex and a couple of lacklustre, crazed idiots – one of whom wanted to mercilessly beat one and another who simpered, bit her lip and let him do exactly what he wanted. However, millions of women (and some men) fell in love with the story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Fifty Shades of Grey became one of the bestselling books of 2011 and the most anticipated movie of 2015. In Blackburn, the seats to all 7 showings on the 13th February were fully booked as couples flocked to experience the passionate love affair on the big screen. According to a member of management, this has never been seen before at our Cinema.

Sex news: Official Fifty Shades of Grey Sex Toys launches new deluxe Red Room...

The Fifty Shades of Grey film, based on the best selling trilogy of books by EL James, will be in theatres (cinemas) from Valentine’s Day next month. I'll be going to see it along with probably most of the western world (though not at the same time and definitely not at the same cinema). The film fifty shades of grey lowest price erotic books at Lovehoney with offersstars Jamie Dornan As Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, the protagonists who find themselves caught in a kinky love affair in the books. As Fifty Shades of Grey undoubtedly (and maybe inexplicably) helped to bridge the worlds of vanilla and kink, it will be genuinely interesting to see the effect a film version will have on the world view of BDSM or at least a bit of light bedroom bondage.

No more page 3? Don’t worry, there are plenty more boobs in the world

It's more than a little scary that if wank fodder gets taken away from a certain type of man their first instinct is to have a tantrum, call names and insult women - insult their looks mostly, for what else do women have? So who is to 'blame' for the door closing on boobs in The Sun? Most put this squarely at the feet of 'those stupid feminists'. We can assume that this refers to the Say No To Page 3 campaigners (find on Twitter and Facebook), who have certainly not made a secret of their feelings about boobs on page 3 (or indeed any other page) of The Sun. Bare breasts in the paper has been labelled misogynistic, objectifying and primitive and the campaigners tirelessly petitioned to get this feature permanently removed from The Sun. Upon hearing the announcement on the 20th January, the Say No To Page 3 campaigners were absolutely ecstatic in their triumphant celebrations.

I feel sorry for the guy with two penises

Not because he’s got two penises. Not because I feel that he’s some kind of freak of nature who deserves my pity. Because of the world’s reaction to him. The man with two penises. That’s how he’s described everywhere, that’s the sum of who he is. Ok sure; so he did go to the media and get them to cover his story from this angle. He has written a book and is making money off the fact that he sexes in stereo. I still feel sorry for him. Ever since he was young he has had to get used to the fact that he was different to other people. Many people go through this, it’s true. Happily, he started with an optimistic outlook, assuming that people would be jealous of him rather than mock him or make him into some kind of social outcast for the rest of his time.
