World’s First Steampunk Vibrator

When unemployed, most of us spend half of our time writing cover letters and applying for jobs and the other half watching “Judge Judy” and reading the magazines our neighbors subscribe to before they have a chance to look at them. But most of us aren’t Ani Niow, an engineering student with a minor in sexuality. Ani made what may be the world’s first “steampunk vibrator,” which looks a bit like a mod dumbbell, weighs about a pound, and is “smooth to the touch.” Word is it “sorta works” but gets too hot for one’s nether regions and must be handled with gloves. If Ani can secure a more powerful boiler, she’ll give a second model a whirl. Hey, it beats eating bonbons and refreshing Monster.com every five minutes. [via LaughingSquid.com] Keep reading »

Off To The Vibrator Races

I really couldn’t tell you what’s going on here, as I don’t zpeakah dah doytch, but apparently someone got bored one afternoon and decided to see what happened if you scrounged up two vibrators, attached small wheels to them, and raced them down a track. Oh, you Dutch. So zany. We’ve posted about quite a range of vibrators here at The Frisky — from the one you can stick in your computer to the one that’ll cost you $2,000 to the one that you might already have and not know it — but this is the first time we’ve posted vibrators that could participate in an Olympic event. What will they think of next? Vibrators that pick up the check? [Gorilla Mask] Keep reading »

USB Rechargeable Vibrator Offers Discreet Sensations

The LELO Mia is not your average vibrator in more ways than one. This lipstick tube-shaped sex toy recharges when you plug it into your computer’s USB drive. You get four hours of playtime once it’s fully charged. The LELO Mia is perfectly disguised to keep in your purse or luggage, but don’t expect it to be wack like other lipstick-shaped vibrators that only have “on” and “off” settings. The LELO Mia has settings that go from a barely audible hum to an intense vibe. It’s recommended for beginner toy users, but any woman who hasn’t reached the super-advanced Magic Wand level will probably enjoy it. Practically perfect, but too bad you can’t use it to store data, too. [Examiner.com] Keep reading »

Seven Ways To Spice Up Sex For Under $5

French Don’t Want Sex Toys In Recession

Contrary to what’s going on here in the U.S., sales of sex toys, massage oils, and other kinky stuff have declined in France, according to vendors at Big Eropolis, an erotic fair near Paris. Attendance has been about the same as last year, said the fair’s organizer, but visitors are buying less. “We always managed to sell [customers] two or three items,” said a vendor. “Now, alas, they leave with one single item. We feel the impact.” To some visitors, the decline in sales didn’t make sense because people tend to like having fun at home during a recession, which is why sex toy sales have jumped in the U.S. Maybe the French are just more ingenious than Americans and don’t need toys? Or maybe there has been a spike in banana and cucumber sales, instead. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Lose Your Job? Sell Sex (But Not Yourself)!

We keep hearing that industries related to sex and dating are some of the only ones not being affected by the recession. Apparently, sex is one of those things that doesn’t need to be eliminated from people’s lives, even when their wallets are thin. After all, it’s free! Of course, extra equipment and accessories cost money. In past months, sales at sex toy boutique Babeland and lingerie stores like La Petite Coquette have seen an increase in sales, even while other parts of the economy have plummeted. Now, one sex toy company is coming to the rescue of women who have lost their jobs during these hard times. Keep reading »

12 Sex Toys In Disguise

As part of the Love Design exhibit in Milan, Matteo Cibic developed a dildo so discreet it won’t just turn you on, it’s also a lamp! Slyly hidden under the base, the dildo is made of safe silicone and changes color when it’s in use. But, when you want to put it away, it gets covered up by a stylish platinum and white bedside light. While the lamp is just a prototype that we hope goes into production, it’s just one of many examples of how a little imagination can go a long way for masturbation. After all, sex toys make for adult fun, but nothing can kill the party in your pants quite like having your dirty little secret exposed. Manufacturers have risen to the challenge and have created clever packages for your naughty toys that even Nancy Drew wouldn’t be able to figure out. Phew! Check out a dozen sex toys in disguise to help you get off without raising an eyebrow, after the jump…

Is That A Sex Toy In Your Egg Carton?

Japanese designers create such beautiful products. Just look at MUJI, the non-brand brand that makes everyday items like tape dispensers and thermoses simply elegant. It doesn’t surprise us that another Japanese company has elevated the look of masturbators. Yes, that’s what the eggs pictured above are. Peel the egg, and there’s a stash of lube inside, which, when poured into the egg, creates a vagina-like environment. Sure, guys could be like Seth Rogen’s character in “Zack and Miri Make A Porno” and buy a Fleshlight, but you can’t hide a Fleshlight in your refrigerator very well. [The Trendy Girl] Keep reading »

Dispatches From The Adult Entertainment Expo

After a few days — or even a few minutes — at the Adult Entertainment Expo, your brain begins to process things differently than it did previously. Breasts covered by clothing seem unusual, almost confusing. Loud moans emanate from adult movies on view at various booths and orgasm contests at others. Since this was my third year, I’m relatively unshockable. Which means that I was able to look past dildos as thick as forearms, girls grinding each other, and a bald man in a black suit who claimed to have equipment that dwarfed John Holmes to determine the best of what the world’s biggest sex convention had to offer.
