Vibrator Envy

I used to work in direct marketing.  I didn't actually DO the direct marketing, so don't throw things at me, but I worked behind the scenes so corporations could put together their intrusive campaigns.  When things were slow, I was obligated to keep myself busy by reading trade magazines so that I could keep up with what was happening in the DM industry.

Yuck.  I'm an avid reader, but this wasn't a topic that engaged my attention.  Getting laid off was a relief.

On the other hand, trade mags in the Adult Novelty and Entertainment business are a MUCH more interesting read.  Sure, there's a lot of who-inked-a-deal-with-whom, but there are also terrific cover stories, like this one, from April.
It really highlights a new trend in the novelty industry - male toys.

Guys are feeling like they're getting, ahem, the shaft when it comes to sex toys.  Women get the We-Vibe and Gigi and the Rabbit and dildos in all sizes, shapes and colors.  What do guys get?

I'll tell you - cock rings, prostate massagers and portable pussies (or cock socks).  Women can't help it if a man's body doesn't lend itself as nicely to more elaborate and imaginative toy designs.

However, an effort is being made!  Tenga, a Japanese company, is really leading the way in making mens masturbatory aids that have masculine appeal without looking ridiculous (where will you hide your porn star pussy when girlfriend comes over, anyway?).

Companies like Nexus and Aneros are putting together educational campaigns to let men know about the benefits of prostate massage.  A decade ago, it was all about the G-spot.  Now, it's all about the P-spot.  Men are catching on that the backdoor provides entry to a new level of pleasure.  Sorry, couldn't avoid the pun. 
Another P-spotting tool: the Pure Wand from nJoy

Cock rings are popping up everywhere, courtesy of companies, like Screaming O, who place their product all over reality TV.  One of the reasons that vibrating cock rings are so popular is that they have appeal to both sexes.  Want to see a demonstration?  Check out the Primrose Path video!

So, guys, vibrator envy is a thing of the past!  You've been heard - now, enjoy your playtime!

All About We-Vibe

The We-Vibe is our most popular vibrator - for good reason!

It's waterproof, body-safe, rechargeable, and flexible with a revolutionary design. It's so fresh and exciting that it looks a little different, compared to the other bullet, rabbit and representational designs on the market.

We've put together a video to help you see what makes We-Vibe worth moaning about.

New Video! Choosing a Vibrator

Okay, I haven't been blogging, but I've been working on other projects!

Shibaricon was a lot of fun. I was there vending with one of my manufacturers (Vera from For Your Nymphomation). It was her first trip to Chicago, and she got to know every Apple store in a 50-mile radius. It's a long story.

The spare room in my house has become a retail store. Are you interested in a personalized shopping experience with your partner? Set up an appointment with me, and I'll answer your questions about various products. You won't get that kind of service elsewhere!

I have also been putting together educational videos about some of our most popular items at Primrose Path. A website can only tell you so much - sometimes you need a demonstration. I'm always happy to grab my Wondrous Vulva puppet for a little show-and-tell.

Today, I put up a video about choosing a vibrator. There are literally thousands of different vibrators out there, and it is very intimidating for a first-time shopper to pick through them to figure out which one is going to do the best job. This video won't answer every question, but it's a start. Plus, it features two of our favorite vibrators from LELO - Gigi and Lily. They're pretty and functional and worth every penny!

Let me know what you think! What other questions do you have about these products that weren't answered by the video?

Coming up next . . . How to Use the We-Vibe!
