Cara Sutra, England's best-known sex blogger, distinguished with an ETO Award, writes in her Pjur Espresso review: “I find this lubricant great to use with silicone sex toys, for couples sex and for masturbation; I did feel much more tingly when using this lubricant for masturbation than my usual water based lube. I do feel that this lubricant is particularly stimulating. This is especially the case when used over the clitoris, during female masturbation.” The notion that pjur espresso awakens a zest for love-making like a fresh espresso proves to be true indeed. And just such innovative products are in frequent demand by customers, reflected by rapidly increasing sales.

The ETO Awards are always a spectacle to attend and behold, and the ETO Awards 2014 dinner, presentation and dancing was no different. In fact, it was even bigger, crazier, happier and hotter than last year. You can read the full list of winners on the ETO Magazine website here. No matter whether you’re nominated for a coveted ETO award or simply attending and soaking up the much needed annual celebration of our wonderful industry, everyone agrees that it’s an exciting and fun night. I’d headed back from day one of the show at 4pm, earlier than the closing time, to get ready and try to relax a little before the night got into full swing. I took my time getting ready, soaking up every moment of this special night away from the desk and anticipating so much fun and excitement.
By Cara Sutra: The big news this week has got to be Lovehoney’s move from Paid on Results affiliate platform to Webgains. This was a huge blow for many affiliates, who like myself have written numerous posts and reviews containing PoR links – as well as all the social media updates out here containing PoR links too. Once the Paid on Results Lovehoney programme ends, those links will all be broken – leading nowhere, affecting blogs, readers, traffic numbers and of course, affiliate commissions.
International Male Chastity Day is set for February 15th, and men are encouraged to get loved up on Valentine's Day then locked up the day after, making for a spectacularly saucy weekend for perverted partners everywhere.
From thousands of entries and nominations I was chosen to be one of the 10 finalists in the Voice category (I think that’s a stray ‘o’ - and they really mean Vice) which focusses on the work done through blogging. That means that you, my readers, are all a part of why I was chosen as a finalist in this category. THANK YOU so much. There are a few other categories in the Mumpreneur awards, such as Spark, Wired, Pillar, Boost (sadly not about chocolate), Reach, Champion, Courage, Engage, Unique, Best Product and Future Star.
Well I’m really very excited to finally be able to launch the brand new Cara Sutra sex blog! I hope you’re all enjoying your time here; if so, please feel free to give me a shout out on Facebook or Twitter (@TheCaraSutra) or on your own blogs. A special mention must go to my brilliant partner Sable of Sablecraft.co.uk for his help with the development and design – I just write the words!
By Cara Sutra: So I just found out this morning that I've been short-listed for the Best Erotic Journalist Award in the ETO Awards 2016 and I am so very grateful and excited! Thanks to everyone who has voted for me so far - I would be ecstatic if you would consider just pushing my button one more time and voting me as your Best Erotic Journalist 2016.
After reading this (admittedly not very recent) article in the Guardian about a man who has and continues to suffer sexual deprivation at the hands of his narrow minded partner, I felt sad enough to...
...they may be a link directory themselves or a certain type of porn site - and I don’t want Google to see my site as being in the same class as www.bigbustymilfs.xxx, www.nakedbukkakequeens.com or www.pervertedpuppiescrushedtesticles.net when I am trying to rank for erotic writing, industry copywriting and/or sex toy reviews from a professional perspective.
What’s the absolute best wand vibrator? Which is the most powerful wand vibrator? If you’re looking for a mighty toy which can deliver unforgettable orgasms, then sex toy connoisseurs know to head straight for the magic wand vibrators.
The BlogSpot area at the UK’s annual premier adult industry trade show (the ETO Show) is devoted to sex bloggers and sex toy testers. The first BlogSpot was at the ETO Show 2015.
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. We hoped to raise a substantial amount for sexual health and well-being charity Brook. As well as regular calls through the night for party folk to donate generously, either through the website link or text, there would be the official launch of our Erotic World Book Day charity anthology, An Intimate Education. 100% of the profit from sales of this erotic e-book would be (and still is being) donated to Brook.

Some very exciting news for Doxy lovers like myself: a new Doxy Wand is in production! Known (for now, at least) as Doxy Number Three, this brand-new Doxy vibrator is set to be released in an exciting launch in Autumn 2017.
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.
I was delighted to receive the debut issue of The Act Itself recently, free of charge in exchange for an honest overview and communication to my erotica loving audience here at Cara Sutra. My first impression upon opening the discreet, well wrapped package was the size of the magazine. Instead of little more than a leaflet which I was expecting (print is very expensive), I held in my hands an A4, glossy leafed book, rather than a magazine. With 150 pages to leaf through (which are admittedly in black and white unlike the outer cover) I knew that this was a magazine which would easily see any avid fan of erotica through four months until the next issue arrived on the mat.
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.
