Lelo's LUNA Beads
"Trust me?" he asks softly.
I nod. He holds out his hand, and in his palm are two round, shiny, silver balls, linked with a thick black thread.
"These are new," he says emphatically.
I look questioningly up at him.
"I am going to put these inside of you, and then I'm going to spank you, not for punishment, but for your pleasure and mine."
This, of course, is one of the famous scenes from Fifty Shades of Grey, the first book in the erotic trilogy by EL James, a series that has made it acceptable for morning shows to discuss spanking and safe words, for women who never considered sex toys before to start investing in their pleasure. What Oprah did for books, EL James is doing for bedroom accessories.
Case in point: sales of LELO's Luna Beads Kegel exercise balls recently and very suddenly jumped by a whopping 400% in the US alone! And they're thanking Fifty Shades for it.
In the excerpt above, Christian and Ana are using the classic 'Ben Wa' or 'Geisha'

textingAdvice from three of EMandLO.com's guy friends. This week they answer the following: "How do adult men feel about sexting? Juvenile phenomenon? Sexy way to break up a few hours apart? Words but no pics?" To ask the guys your own question, click here.Read More »from What Do Men Really Think About Sexting?
Gay Married Guy (Jon Ross): Sexting is pretty much the best use of smart phones that ever existed and I think Graham Bell would be mighty proud indeed to see the lengths to which mankind has taken his invention. Few things beat the rush of excitement when you get a naughty mid-day ping - be it pictures or words, it matters not. Sext away fair maiden! We can't get enough of it.
Straight Single Guy (Adam): As long as sexting maintains its taboo, it's going to be fun. That definitely won't change. Unfortunately, however, "fun" doesn't always equate to "wise" or even "worth the risk." Whether it's worth the risk to send a few naughty lines or (yikes!) a picture of your man-parts to someone is a personal decision; one that should be made after
couple's toyDear Em & Lo,
I can climax really easily during masturbation, but I have never climaxed with my boyfriend. I really want to try out a toy during sex, as I think it will help, but every time I bring up the topic with my boyfriend he gets defensive about it. He says things like it'll replace him and that I'll want the toy more than him, and whatnot. It's just that I really want to share an orgasm with him. What can I do?
Um, how about you tell your boyfriend that you want him to give up orgasms for 2012. If he complains, tell him that his hesitation makes you think that he cares about his orgasms more than he cares about you. And whatnot. This might help bring your point home...
Or perhaps you want to take a kinder, gentler approach. In which case you could go toy-shopping with him so that he can help you pick out a toy that doesn't intimidate him so much. We can totally understand him not wanting to share the bed with a work-horse likeRead More »from Help, Toys Terrify My Boyfriend in Bed!

red handcuffsA female friend of ours, a recent college grad who wishes to remain anonymous, has a confession to make:
I think I might be kinky.
I know, I know: These days, who isn't? With Fifty Shades of Greyrefusing to budge from the bestseller list and Rihanna singing about how chains and whips excite her, it's practically de rigueur to own a pair of fuzzy handcuffs. But I know for me, this isn't some trendy game I'll play with a pink blindfold and a couple of scarves (though if those are your thing, more power to you!). I'm talking about real domination and submission, real pain.
I've always liked playing around with control in the bedroom. One boyfriend I had would pretend to be a bandit or a pirate and I would be the pretty maiden waiting to be ravished. Another would pin me down, yank my hair, bite harder than usual. (Unfortunately, most guys couldn't seem to understand that I actually wanted something that hurt and left a mark, not just a delicate, ticklish nip on the neckRead More »from I Think I Might like Kink (And No, It's Not Because of 50 Shades of Grey)

In the beginning...
LELO created the first 24-karat gold sex toy.
Next, they created the first eco-friendly lithium polymer rechargeable batteries for bedside accessories.
Then, they created the first wireless massagers whose vibrations are created through movements of the remote.
Behold! The SenseMotion™ Insignia 2 line!
Seriously, the folks at LELO have outdone themselves. The famous Swedish design company of luxury intimate items has just won the Oscars of the design world, the coveted Red Dot Design Award of 2012 for their original SenseMotion™ Insignia couple's massager, the Tiani-- it's worn by the woman during playtime for both partners' pleasure. (Previous winners of the Red Dot include the Apple iPhone 4, BMW 5er Touring, and the Bose SoundDock -- it's a BFD!) Now, LELO taken their entire "sense motion" line of vibes -- the Tiani, the Lyla internal/external massager, and the Oden couple's ring -- and made them
