Adelaide has made it into the big time with the first ever Sexpo being held here. While I didn't attend, I did complain to the advertising regulator that it was being promoted early in the evening on commercial television. It really did generate a lot of free publicity with all the news programmes covering it. Major step forward for Adelaide with the coming out of the Sex Industry. Adelaide has more than its fair share of sex shops and adult entertainment venues and perhaps reflects some of the calvinist thought around the place.
Being a little prudish by nature I was interested to see that the first ever Sexpo had also recently been held in Tokyo. Based on my experience in Japan I got the feeling that this sort of stuff would be more out in the open, but it seems that it is not the done thing to wander around Sex Exhibitions in Japan.
Japan recently had its first-ever adult expo at the Makuhari Messe convention center near Tokyo. In a press release the organizers of the "Adult Treasure Expo" vowed to "draw the adult industry out of the darkness and secrecy which has traditionally surrounded it, to the place of honor and value which it deserves.
Honor and Value indeed. Interesting stuff all the same if you are into exploring ways to make it better.
And Product of the Day goes to the G Pod.
The gPod dildo has three independent motors which vibrate in time to any audio input, including music from an iPod or the sound of the human voice. The name is as ingenious as the design: a triple pun on iPod, G-spot and the Japanese for masturbation, jii.
