There are three things in life that I love: Sex toys, technology and repurposing stuff in my home so that I can someday achieve my goal of breaking Etsy and/or Pinterest with my doubtlessly charming Brooklyn-based craft projects.

Staring at this squishy little vibrator, that looks more like something you'd find on the beach than in a sex store, two thoughts went through my mind. The first was that I now understood what the seashells in Demolition Man were for. The second thought was perhaps more relevant to Tenga's Iroha Kushi: It is the perfect example of the rising trend of sex toys as art. It's the sex toy industry venturing past pure utility into art for art's sake, and it feels great humming against your clit.
Swedish adult toy designer LELO has released a $US139.00 juiced-up update to the LILY, its decade-old clitoral vibrator. The new version, called LILY 2, is still small, smooth, and comma-shaped, but now sports a more powerful motor and a surface that's infused with a purportedly aphrodisiacal fragrance.
A vibrator's basic job is really quite simple, so long as you're using it as a sex toy instead of unclenching a charley horse or working out some lower back pain. Vibrators are supposed to rapidly stimulate sexually sensitive sensory neurons. That's it. They could look like anything. But until recently, they often looked like a garish dick.
If Crave's Flex is the Linux of vibrators, with its long menu of settings and programmable waveforms, Minna Life's Limon is more like a slimmed down iPhone app. It lets you change just one variable — the strength of the buzz — with an equally simple and intuitive method: how hard you squeeze.
Everything is hackable — you can jailbreak your phone to get better apps, but you can also mod your own eyeballs to have night vision. Where do we go from there? Your libido, of course. Programmable vibrators are the new frontier in customisable gadgets, and we got a taste of what they're like.
Busy over the weekend? No matter, these things can wait. Valentine's Day may just be another consumerist Hallmark holiday — but that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun with it. So instead of jewellery or flowers, why not get your loved one something a little more... animated? (Not safe for work!)
Holier-than-thou bicycle enthusiasts have been touting the benefits of their cleaner, healthier method of transportation for ages. But thanks to the UK's leading website for lascivious adult pleasures, the act of bicycle riding is about to get a whole lot less — well, holy. That's right, SexShop365 is proud to present the newest innovation in vibrating bicycle seats: the Happy Ride.
Australia exports a great many things to the world, including natural resources, mediocre sports personalities and most importantly, Tim Tams. Never before — or so I'm told — have we been responsible for the invention and distribution of a locally made marital aid, though. That is, until now, at least. Condom company, Big Richard, has teamed up with a research lab in the US to create a marital aid that is a first for Australia, and one that is also based on more than just buzzing on and around the lady harp.
They look like golden bullets, sure, but I don't care what kind of sexual deviant you are; you probably shouldn't be on the recieving end of a gun that fires vibraters. Nonetheless, Joerg Sprave has built one — caving to watcher's demands — and dubbed it the "Launcher of Love," which is suggestive in its own right.
