Sex News: New Voluptasse merchandise; sex shop mugs for sale

Merchandise from sex shops is so en vogue in 2014. It seems that no matter who you are, staff, sex blogger, sex toy reviewer or customer, everyone is lusting after a branded key fob, jacket, hoody, mug, lighter, pen, pencil, bookmark or whatever.
I received a lovely surprise in the post today, courtesy of Voluptasse; a branded hoody and mug! Thank you so much to Mel – I am wearing the hoody as I write this and I will enjoy a sexy cup of coffee in the mug very shortly.

Thinking of writing a sex toy review? 10 things to remember

Always disclose that you received the product free of charge from the company in exchange for a fair, honest and unbiased review. Make sure that your thoughts and feelings are expressed in terms of your own opinion and based on your own experience. For instance instead of stating that product x is ‘unsuitable for all women as it’s entirely rubbish’, you may instead choose to write that product x ‘didn’t work for me and I can think of many ways in which it could be improved to suit me personally’.

You might have been mulling the idea over in your mind for quite a while, a fantasy which is yet to make it into reality. Or, you might be quite the dirty weekend veteran, eagerly anticipating your next chance for an illicit hotel room liaison with your lover.

I’d held a home party the night before and in the midst of clearing up I’d shoved various large rabbit vibrators, bullets and other sex toys into the over-sized bags which were fashionable at the time. Unbeknown to me, when entering a county court all bags must be searched and emptied by 2 security guards. They had a great time pulling each and every item painstakingly out of my bag, in front of a queue which consisted solely of middle-aged men whilst my face glowed redder and redder with each product. They then had to go through an x ray machine along with my bag.

Report: Eroticon 2014 – the UK’s erotic writing conference

In a blur of information and notes the first sessions passed all too quickly, with the second I attended given by Emily Dubberly and Mia More from Cliterati. This one was about talking to the press and it was very interesting – especially in light of my recent post. Some fantastic points were raised and one of the good examples held up was Girl on the Net – who everyone was delighted and astonished to learn only after the session was actually in attendance!
