Here are some things I didn't have time to get to last week but that you must check out!Fleshbot reviews The New Romantix and likes it as much as I did.Remember that "skin tax" that was threatening Washington State? It looks like it will be defeated. Babeland's voice was heard loud and clear in an AP article that got picked up by over 10 outlets! Our Chief Operating Officer, Rebecca Denk, got the last word and the LA Times story has some terrific pictures of the Seattle location store manager and a lovely shot of the store (pictured).

But after heavy criticism from editorialists and sex-shop customers alike, Democratic Rep. Mark Miloscia, who sponsored the bill, now acknowledges it will fail this year.

That's a relief for Babeland, which sells sex toys, DVDs, magazines and other erotica at stores in Seattle and New York City. A porn tax might have caused the company to reconsider doing business in the state, Chief Operating Officer Rebecca Denk said."The adult industry is this big mystery," Denk said. "They think it's the Larry Flynts of the world and very deep pockets and a multibillion-dollar industry, when in fact it's small businesses."According to BoingBoing and the Harvard Business School, red states consume more porn:

States where a majority of residents agreed with the statement "I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage," bought 3.6 more subscriptions per thousand people than states where a majority disagreed. A similar difference emerged for the statement "AIDS might be God's punishment for immoral sexual behaviour."

"One natural hypothesis is something like repression: if you're told you can't have this, then you want it more," Edelman says. Fleshbot strikes again, this time with a great Sex Toys For Beginners article - all of the toys are from Babeland and there's some great advice given.
