The ETO Show & Awards 2015 Report

It's over a week since I returned from the annual ETO Show at Birmingham's NEC and I don't think I've come back to earth just yet. As usual, the ETO Magazine team put on a spectacular adult industry trade show, with a gala dinner and awards presentation in the middle of the two days to celebrate the best in the biz.

The Evolution of Women’s Sex Toys

For many decades in the past, society viewed sex toys for either men or women as almost entirely taboo. Vibrators for women were the cause of both giggles and derisive scorn, while men who...

What Makes An Erection Sexy?

By Cara Sutra: There’s something about a bouncing, bobbing erect penis which can be so fucking hot. But what is it about hard cock? What makes an erection sexy?

The Best Halloween Games For Adults To Play

For all those planning a Halloween party for their adult friends, I thought I’d ‘treat’ you to some of my favourite Halloween party games. These games are perfect for those who are a little older, but can be adapted for younger children to play too. Enjoy!

Get What You Want: How to Bed the One you Have Had Your Eye...

If you're going to seduce the man of your dreams, you need to turn on the charm. Yes, we mean some serious flirting. We're all familiar with the old tricks of playing with your hair and bending over his desk, but how about something a little more... upfront. If you're both milling about at a dull work party, try letting him know how interested you are with a very saucy one-liner. Try something like “I just can't wait to take this dress off, do you fancy giving me a hand?” If that doesn't get him from uninterested to putty in your hands, we don't know what will!

Sex Blogger Spotlight Series: Switch Studies

I read quite a few sex blogs. Many of them are excellent, but I hadn't found any written by someone who shares my identity as a polyamorous bisexual switch. I'd find myself nodding along with a perspective about kink only to be jarred by a sentence that implied that of course all relationships are monogamous, or reading about polyamory from a perspective that doesn't allow for consensual power dynamics in relationships. It felt as though reading a representation of sexuality that encompassed my experience required cobbling bits and pieces of others' writing into a sort of kinky Frankenstein's monster. If I was going to be doing that anyway, I may as well put it out there for anyone else who might be interested.

Why You Shouldn’t be Ashamed of Your ‘Controversial’ Sexual Fantasy

Nearly everyone has a sexual fantasy or fetish that they are nervous revealing to a partner. It may be a pretty tame, run of the mill kink or a fetish that's a bit eye opening, it simply doesn't matter. Often, we're so worried about pleasing our partner in the bedroom that we often push our own desires aside. Well, that's just not fair! A big part of a good sex life is being able to communicate effectively, so there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to tell your partner about your fantasy – no matter how dirty it is.

Fifty Shades Darker Film Review

By Mel MacFarlane: I spent all of last week rereading excerpts from Fifty Shades Darker. For our industry this series has created lots of business and done some really great things in terms of acceptance for those who practice BDSM.

Erotic Author Spotlight Series: Kristina Lloyd

The latest work I read from Kristina Lloyd was a short story entitled 'Cutting out Hearts' in Cleis Press' Best Erotic Romance 2013 anthology, edited by Violet Blue. Apart from the emotion rich scenes and raunchy sexual aspects, there is a deep, underlying psychological value to her writing which makes you think. The brain is our sexiest organ and Kristina certainly knows how to use hers, as well as inviting yours along for the ride, to get to a thoroughly satisfying destination.

Sex News: New KIIROO with Fleshlight Inside; Cyberdildonic Sex Toys for Long Distance Lovers

So what does the future of social connectivity mean to me? I’m in a different position to those seeking a way to connect with their lover or the target of their seduction techniques over long distance. I live with my partner so we are fortunate to be able to maintain a regular and exciting sex life skin to skin, lips to lips, fingers in hair, and… well. I’ll leave that to your imagination for now. However, not everyone is able to live with their partner, or see their fuck buddy very often, or even live in the same country as the one they lust after. What then?

My Deserved Punishment From Mistress

I'd taken far too long to complete the last task I'd been given, and my Mistress was very displeased with me. Despite my begging and pleading, and my grovelling apology, I got the impression Mistress was deliberately making me wait before announcing her chosen punishment.
Fetish Friday

How can I stop being kinky? I want to leave BDSM!

I hear quite frequently of Doms and Dommes, Masters and Mistresses, submissives and bottoms talking of quitting ‘the scene.’ The scene of course, being BDSM or Fetish. How can a person stop being kinky? Can one...

Sensual Scents: A Rose By Any Other Name

By Jon Pressick: Have you ever noticed the faintest scent, a passing aroma? Perhaps in a crowded street, amongst strangers. Perhaps alone, in your home. And did that distinct smell bring about memories of passion or inflame distinct desire?

Slipping into the world of Nuru Massage

By Karma Tantric: I have been a huge fan of erotic massage ever since I encountered my first body to body massage a few years ago. My willingness to try new things unknowingly opened a whole new playground of sexual pleasure into my life. It’s a combination of total sensory relaxation, coupled with the up-close skin to skin sensation that induces some of the most wildly intense orgasms I have ever managed to achieve.

Why Women Shouldn’t Be Afraid To Try Male Escorts

By Lauren Miller: There's nothing odd about hiring male escorts – professional women all over the world are doing it. So what could a hunky male escort do for you?

A Snog for Sommer

I feel the sheet under me, the sheet that felt so cold when he first carried me to it and laid me down but has since submitted to warmth underneath my naked but for rope body. I feel the hemp rope tight but not painful around both wrists, tied in front of me in a placating prayer. He is kind and didn’t tie them to my rear, so I can lay flat on the bed. He is cruel because I know this means he plans to keep me like this for some time. Rope also adorns my ankles, keeping them bound together although I can crook my legs open at the knees. Or rather, he can prise them apart. My mind cartwheels again. I try for a dry swallow.

Erotic Author Spotlight Series: Sophie Morgan

I first heard of Sophie Morgan when I read her best selling, personal tale of kinky discovery, Diary of a Submissive. Sophie is not only a talented writer but also a friendly lady who...

Sex Blogger Spotlight Series: Cava Supernova

In 2010, I found out my husband had been cruising for men on Gaydar and having sex with them in our bed. It was the final nail in the coffin – our marriage was blighted by his alcohol problems and his vile temper. The whole thing destroyed me, and the pain was mind numbing. I didn’t even cry for two years. Just before Valentine’s Day this year, ‘something’ compelled me to write it down and I put it on my blog CavaSupernova. I’d started the blog to prove to myself I could still have a good time after nearly two decades of misery with my ex. I surprised myself that I’d written about something that had caused such intense pain.

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.
