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.


Something like $3,050,000,000 worth of vibrators are sold every year — that's 60 million vibrators. After a lifetime of service, when they have given out their last little buzz, where do they go? Into landfill. And that's a problem the world's first biodegradable vibrator hopes to solve.


The vagina and clitoris are mysterious things. No, seriously they are. Scientists make big bucks studying the penis, but the vagina and clitoris often languish in official research circles. They languish in the bedroom too.


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.


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!)


Let's face it. There are two reasons you'd want to use a vibrator: because you are a gadget lover who can't imagine anything, including sex, without a little technology involved; or because you just want to have an orgasm, and fast. But with the Crave Vesper, there is a third possibility.


For all the mystique surrounding the female orgasm, vibrators are a surefire way for lots (and lots) of ladies to get off. I recently took a tour of Crave, a sex toy company that prototypes and fabricates its products in San Francisco; here's a peek inside your new favourite mini pleasure machine.


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.


This makes sense in a way that makes absolutely no sense. David Ley, a University of Alberta drama professor and vocal coach, figured out that one especially effective and not at all lecherous way to sooth a lost voice is... a vibrator.


This is Crave's Duet, a dual-headed vibrator that charges via USB and can store up to 16GB of stuff. Half of it is the battery with the flash memory — convenient to store all your porn — the other half is the dual-headed vibe.


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.
