A couple of months ago The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a report that concluded the female erogenous zone, known as the G-spot, doesn't exist. After reading exerts from the report I was left bewildered and confused! Whilst it's somewhat hard to challenge the results of a report compiled by academics and medical practitioners I find it difficult to assimilate their conclusion in relation to the existence of the G-spot. I think they're ignorant, naive and wrong!

These days it's rare for me to come across new sex toys that are truly innovative and revolutionary. Whilst I regularly travel internationally to trade shows scouting for new products it's seldom that I discover any that leave me excited about their potential for sales. So when I received an email from a friend who distributes sex toys in Germany detailing the overwhelming sales success (they sold over 12,000 in the first 7 weeks) of a new product called the Womanizer my attention was piqued.

Imagine the surprise of a naive 21 year old woman who unwrapped a Xmas present and realised it was her first vibrator? This is how Mia, our Sales Manager at adultshop.com, was introduced to sex toys. At the time she was shocked and confused. Her first thought after opening her gift was that her husband didn't want to have sex with her anymore. And she dreaded answering the questions from her parents and friends as to what she'd received for Xmas. Fast forward two decades – what's changed?

In 1995 I started a premium rate phone dating service that quickly morphed into Australia's largest phone sex business. The business employed over 200 women who worked primarily from a large call centre but also sometimes from home. At its peak in the year 2000 we received 70,000 calls a month from around Australia. And they were charged at the bargain rate of $5.50 per minute! It gave me a good insight into male masturbation and what turns men on.

Having your mother find your stash of Playboy magazines, along with a bottle of baby oil and a box of tissues, underneath your bed at the age of 13 is one of the most humiliating and harrowing events any teenage boy could face! Well this happened to me. One afternoon I was horrified when confronted by my stern looking mother who had placed my bag of magazines and 'masturbation necessities' on top of my bed. Due to the embarrassment we both felt, we never needed to talk about it. And I'm glad we didn't! This is not the sort of discussion a teenage boy wants to have with either parent. He's certainly not going to ever admit to masturbating even if he's caught out.

"I always prefer to have sex with the average looking escorts rather than the hot model lookalikes!" This was my friend Amit's response when I asked him about the escorts he employed and in particular which ones he had sex with. Back in 2001 I was travelling back and forth to New York where I was finalizing a deal with Amit, the owner of one of New York's largest escort agencies, to create an online worldwide directory of escorts.

"I think sometimes some guys may watch a bit too much porn and think that throwing women around the bed in a variety of positions and jack-hammering them is what we consider to be great sex...um no!" This was one of the many responses I received from a woman when I did a call out recently asking for what women regard as bad sex.

Not long back at a black tie social event two young ladies introduced themselves to me. After confirming that I was the owner of adultshop.com one of the ladies proudly pronounced she had a rabbit vibrator and she was addicted to it. The other lady, not wanting to be out done, was quick to announce that she had a dolphin vibrator and a rabbit vibrator...and the rabbit vibrator made her squirt when she orgasmed. To my amazement this conversation took place in the first minute of us meeting. I remember thinking that this type of introduction never happened to me when I was a civil engineer.

Early last year a friend of mine was constantly lamenting his low libido. Every time we caught up, the subject of his low sex drive would feature heavily in our chats. He's in his early forties, has been married for over ten years and has a few young children. And he just didn't feel like having sex very often with his wife! I suggested he have some blood tests done and discuss the results with his doctor or a specialist. There are a number of factors that could adversely impact upon a man's sex drive. Hormonal issues, like low levels of testosterone, can often be a problem for men when they hit their forties. At the time I thought it was more than likely that he had low testosterone levels.

At an adultshop.com party last week a staff member told me that she'd recently had an out-of-body experience during sex and her partner also experienced the same phenomenon! Wow! And neither of them was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time. She raved about how great that particular sex session was. It left me thinking; what does it take for sex to be deemed great sex? I've had body tingling and mind blowing great sex. I've had average sex and yes just like everyone I've had some pretty boring uneventful sex in my time... but I've never had an out-of-body experience.
