VIBRATORS in the bath, dildos in the living room, Geisha balls at the newsstand - sex toys are coming out of the closet, and glam 30-something women are leading the trend.
Oscar-winner Halle Berry is a huge fan of sex toys. She admits to frequently visiting 'The Pleasure Chest' (a specialist store which sells vibrators and sexy underwear) to fulfill her needs. 'You can't forget your sexuality... you can still embrace your body by going to the gym or going to The Pleasure Chest,'
Eva Longoria Unlike her character Gaby, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria doesn't need a teenage gardener to satisfy her! Eva once revealed that some of the best sex she had ever experienced was with a sex aide. 'I own two...I have the Rabbit one, and I give that as a gift all the time... It's the best gift to give - an orgasm.
Emma Bunton It seems Baby Spice Emma Bunton doesn't need a man to spice up her life! She recently admitted that she often pleasures herself with a vibrator given to her by fellow Spice Girl Mel B. That's girl power for you!
"It's become a fashion phenomenon, if you haven't got a toy you're uncool,'' said Samantha Thouret, whose Yoba boutique, opened in 2003 in one of Paris' smartest districts, was the first of a string of new stylish adults-only shops to hit the city.
It takes a brave celebrity to stand up and be counted, but these ladies are happy to shout it loud and proud - 'we love our sex toys!' but these guys have and im just name a few. From the I Rub My Duckie waterproof vibrator bath toy (the latest in the series is the Penguin which has 8 speeds) to the Rabbit that starred in TV series Sex And The City - toy sales are soaring, as are edible creams and edible underwear.
The Rabbits had all sold out last week at the boudoir-like 1969 shop near the Pompidou art centre, a store that opened two years ago and now has a bigger outlet in the southern port of Marseille. It had a glam Duckie clad in black feathers and sporting a trendy Swarovski crystal. At Yoba, the Secret Bullet - a remote-controlled egg vibrator that needs two to play - was the most popular toy of the month in July, along with a vibrator that plugs into an MP3 and plays with the music. Brillant. Dollhouse, opened to cater specifically to women, two 30-somethings purchased a pair of Geisha balls, which offer a "vaginal workout'' - after being instructed not to use them for more than 15 minutes at a time at first. So guys, there's no pornography any more, no vulgar lingerie, it's girlie, it's fashion. Women are becoming a driving market force.
Yeah! Im off to the shops now. Back soon. Thanks handbag.com
