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.

Professional Copywriting for the Adult Industry – Part 1

Companies need copywriters. They are important not only to help turn their site visitors into customers, but also to help their website rank higher on the web. Effective copy on a website, known as ‘optimised copy’, will not only persuade the natural visitors the website gets to make a purchase, but it will also efficiently tell Google and the other search engines information about that page to help it rank higher for relevant searches by people on the internet.

Newsflash Michigan: Anal Sex & Blowjobs Are Not The Same As Dog Fucking

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.

Sex News: Alluring Art Photography brings you new, moving erotic images

I really like the idea of the Alluring Art Photography – Digital Erotic Anthology because it retains the subtle nuances of the female body without going down the route of a more pornographic feel. Viewers get a sensual rather than hardcore sense of the images, even with the movement added. However for those who love traditional pornography, the Alluring Art Erotic Anthology adds some movement to previously still pictures, breathing life into them and giving an interactive feel.

Official Fifty Shades of Grey Sex Toys

Earlier this year, Lovehoney secured the rights to release a range of sex toys and bondage gear aimed at Fifty Shades fans looking to experiment.

After months of hard work by everyone involved, the products have finally gone live on Lovehoney.co.uk.

Make your piggy bank overflow with erotic crowdfunding for girls

Money. We often don't have enough of it to do what we want, and most people's lives include an element of trying to get more. Usually this is to cover at least the expense of everyday life, sometimes for a specific ambition or dream. That designer dress, the car that caught your eye on the forecourt, the deposit for your first home.

Growing Acceptance of Sex Toys in India

By Aleena M Reyes: When people think of India they may think that a place where the Kamasutra originated must be a huge believer in free and open sex with any consenting adults, right? Not quite. Contrary to western belief, the ancient Hindu text was a life manual that detailed the way a person should live their life both inside and outside of the bedroom.

7 Dangers Of Buying Into The Orgasm Gap

Working in the sex industry, I've recently heard the term orgasm gap a number of times in blog posts, on social media and in press emails to me. What is this orgasm gap? Why is the spotlight on it now? And why do I believe there are dangers associated with it?

Censored sexuality: why the UK porn ban is so terrifying

By Cara Sutra: I mean if porn DVDs are being produced which are expressing an enjoyable and liberated view of sexuality, then there should be no problem having Video on Demand following the same guidelines. This has become known as the UK porn ban.

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.
