Those who went to see the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation expecting seductive and titillating scenes of hot kinky sex would have been sorely disappointed! Many of the 100 million readers of the trilogy referred to the books as 'mommy porn' although the general consensus of film goers was that the porn scenes were yawn-worthy. Whilst there were a number of semi saucy nude scenes I don't actually believe they could really be described as porn. Given the film was released on Valentine's Day in the US it was clearly pitched as romance in contrast to porn.

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?

My summer vacation this year saw me travelling to Yallingup, then half way around the world to Los Angeles and New York. And it was in LA that the subject of a close friend's impending buck's party came up. I'm in the wedding party with three other groomsmen. We have until September to mastermind the buck's party of all buck's parties! It's traditional that men who are getting married have one last hoorah with the boys before they tie the knot. And the hopefully once in a lifetime event is a rite of passage!

When I recently canvassed the opinions of some of the female staff at adultshop.com in relation to what the etiquette was for women's orgasm I wasn't really surprised with their responses (nor their frowns). All believed there was no such etiquette required and that they should orgasm whenever the opportunity arose without any considerations whatsoever. I then asked a few guys at my local gym (over pre workout double espressos) what they thought about a woman's orgasm etiquette. The first two guys, who clearly had a sense of humour, responded with a question - "can women actually orgasm?" The next couple of guys were more insightful and gave me some food for thought.

I recently caught up with a friend of mine whom I called a 'Cougar'. She's in her forties, still very attractive, is divorced and has two teenage children. She'd been bragging to me about her young "gorgeous boyfriend" who was in his twenties when I suggested she was a cougar. They'd been dating for nearly a year. My assertion that she was a cougar was met with dismay and fierce rebuttal. In fact this is how she responded: "first of all let's get this straight Mal, I'm not a cougar! Just because I was married to someone 9 years younger than me and just because I'm currently involved with someone whose age has a 2 in front of it, whereas mine has a 4 in front, doesn't make me a cougar. In fact when I hear the word cougar it makes me think of a woman who goes out and preys on younger men. And this couldn't be further from the truth in my case!"

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.

A while back I was visiting a girlfriend who lived with another girl. It was a Saturday afternoon and I was in the lounge room watching the football. The two girls were trying on dresses in the bedroom. In walked the boyfriend of the other girl. He shook my hand and went straight to the fridge and knocked back a can of beer in one long gulp. He then asked me where his girlfriend was. I told him. Moments later my girlfriend walked out. Then I heard a few minutes of squealing. He then walked back out doing up his zipper, went straight to the fridge and downed another beer with just one long gulp. Then he left.

A soft cock isn't much use to anyone! At an adult industry event in Las Vegas a few years back, I asked a male porn star if he, or other male porn stars he worked with, had any problems getting or maintaining erections. His response was “of course I do, just like all men do from time to time”. This surprised me a bit as I believed a male porn star would have ‘excelled' in this area. He then went on to tell me how women (usually referred to as fluffers) were often employed by film producers to keep male stars aroused between scenes. They usually did this by performing oral sex on them.
