    The Shame Free Guide to Buying a Sex Toy

    Most Babeland customers are looking for something to share with their partner, Claire Cavanah, Babeland co-founder and co-author of Moregasm: Babeland’s Guide to Mind-Blowing Sex, told me. The best-selling vibrator for her is "hands down" the We-Vibe 4, a two-pronged vibrating sex toy that's supposed to help with simultaneous orgasms. There are even toys you can control with your smartphone, like the OhMiBod Blue Motion.

    Fifty Shades of Grey is Building Bridges Between the Imagination and the Bedroom

    When a salacious media phenom like the Fifty Shades book trilogy comes along, things start happening. People think differently, act differently, say and do things they wouldn’t have said and done before.… At Babeland, an adult store in New York, sales of kinky products are up nearly 30 percent in the last few months and visits to the bondage section of their Web site have spiked 81 percent, reports the New York Post. “The book is just an explosion of permission for [people] to try something new in the bedroom,” Babeland’s co-founder, Claire Cavanah told the Post.

    Blushing Fifty Shades of Red

    The erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, about a young woman named Anastasia and her bondage-loving boyfriend Christian, has been jumping off shelves (and into e-book download queues) since it was released by Knopf’s Vintage imprint earlier this year. Everybody’s reading it, but a book this risqué makes for some awkward conversations. What if your mom is reading it? Rebecca Lee Douglas went there. Claire Cavanah, Babeland’s Co-Founder, is interviewed. Listen online.

    Hardware Stores Are Experiencing A Boom In Rope Sales Thanks To A Certain Erotic Novel
    The New York Post is reporting that hardware stores in NYC have seen an increase in rope sales over the past several months — and it's not because men are suddenly conquering their to-do lists. The novel has encouraged women to explore their kinky sides with materials used in the novel like rope, riding crops and handcuffs. NYC's Babeland has seen its sales of kinky toys increase 30 percent and an 81 percent increase in traffic to its website, the Post reports.
