Sex News

What’s new in the adult industry? Welcome to my sex news area. Here you’ll find adult business news and adult industry updates relevant to your interest in the fascinating world of sex and sexual pleasure products.

For the most part, the sex industry keeps ticking over with the usual growth and improvements in all areas. Sometimes, however, there are business developments and new sex toys which I feel highly motivated to share with my readers in an in-depth feature here on the Cara Sutra sex blog.

Various adult industry events are scheduled throughout each year, with some unfortunately falling victim to rising exhibition costs but others staying the distance. XBIZ and ANME in the US, Europe’s Erofame and the UK’s ETO Show are examples of adult industry exhibitions which can be relied on to provide distributors and retailers with a space to both display their new lines as well as discovering what others are bringing out that year. Past consumer events include Sexhibition and Erotica, with Sexpo still popular in some locations and trialling shows in the UK from time to time.

Other adult business news covered here will include important announcements relating to pleasure product launches I’m particularly excited about. If there’s something I feel you really should know about and try out for yourself, I’ll write it up here at the blog. Of course you can browse all the sex toy reviews, sexy lingerie reviews and bondage gear reviews for specific product feedback, too. I hope you enjoy keeping updated with goings-on in the adult industry thanks to my sex news features.

Sex news: My girlfriend won’t use anal sex toys on me

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...

You Don’t Have To Pay Creative Freelancers Who Love Their Job (& Other Bullshit...

By Cara Sutra: Inexplicably, when you’re freelance/run your own business/work from home/work in a creative niche such as professional blogging, copywriting or marketing, some businesses feel that paying you for your work is just an option, not a requirement. Requesting payment for skilled creative work such as marketing and copywriting can give rise to attitudes anywhere from surprise and reluctance, to offence and flat refusal.

UK Government Porn Ban: Female Ejaculation, Face Sitting, Fisting and Spanking

By Hella Rude In case you missed the headlines, the Great British Government made the neato decision to ban a completely confusing list of sex acts in UK porn. I've been reading story upon story upon story regarding the subject and I feel like we might be (on the most part) missing the point here. If you hadn't guessed, this is VERY MUCH an opinion piece.

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.

And now there's even more ways to enjoy your LoveArc, with the new LoveArc harnesses for Doxy Wands and flared base dildos.

Sex Survey: British women prefer kinky art & entertainment professionals in bed

A key finding of the survey was that British women rate Arts & Entertainment professionals (jobs such as Actors, Musicians, Artists, Fashion Designers, TV & Radio Presenters and Producers) as the top performers in the sack with 2 in 5 partners giving them the gold star ratings of either ‘excellent’ or ‘the best lover I have ever had.’ Unfortunately, Uniformed workers (Firefighter, Police, Armed Forces) fared less well in the performance stakes with only 24 per cent of women rating them highly and one in eight (13 per cent) saying either they could be better or are poor lovers. Only 17 per cent of partners said they didn’t need any improvement at all.

Sex Tech Patent Scuppers Cyber Sex Toys & Future Sex Tech

by Hella Rude This week has been more hectic than stressful than any I can remember in recent years. As a person who works with the adult retail sector across many levels, I have been hit hard by the recent uproar in sex tech patent trolling. If you haven't caught the story, a US patent filed in 1998 is set to shake up the sex toy world thanks to its obscure and frankly ridiculous patenting of any sex toy that stimulates remotely using a digital signal.

Science Of Kissing: Kissing Facts, Kisses In History & ‘Kiss’ Etymology

Have you ever wondered why we kiss? What's the history behind kissing? There's quite a lot of history behind the human activity of kissing, as it happens. As well as the romantic and passionate elements of smooching, the scientific side of kissing is fascinating. There's even a word for these kissing facts: the science of kissing is called philematology.
