The tale of four erotic romance authors and a sex expo...

Once a year the Sexpo show comes to Sydney.  It's a few fun filled days of sex toys, fetish wear, live performances, tits and tats competitons...you name it - it's got it!  The perfect place for erotic romance authors to do some "in depth" research!

Yesterday, bright and early of course, Jess Dee, Lexxie Couper, Rhian Cahill and myself went on a voyage of discovery...

Greeting us at the entrance were some very interesting sculptures.  I'm not sure I would call them art *vbg* but they certainly left us in no doubt as to what we were in for LOL




Once inside the door we were immediately immersed into the world of sex toys!  There were so many stands...we were like kids in a candy store!




At our first port of call we had the most informative demonstration of how use to a couples cock ring....LOL....and lucky us, it came in a special box that included among other things, a battery operated massage glove and a remote control bullet (so the dh can get our attention from the other side of the room when we're at a party....so the guy who owned the store suggested!!  LMAO)

Then he showed us his most popular model of "Rabbit" vibrators...let me just say, this guy knows his way around a sex toy!  For a little extra, you could get the red box of toys that included this beauty!

The biggest selling product around the show was a little device I'd heard a lot about and was really curious to see.  After a very enthusiastic discussion with a couple of sex educators (yes, that really is their job) a few of the group just had to buy one!  I mean, when you see the way one of the girls eyes lit up with remembered pleasure every time she spoke about it, how can one resist?

 Here's a pic...

Hey, you can even take this in your hand luggage on an airplane and the airport staff won't figure out what it's for!  Or even better...you can wear it on the plane! LOL

No, I'm not telling who bought what!  All I can say is that they're all for research purposes only and totally tax deductible.

On from the toy stands, we ventured into the other side, where the public performances were on.  The first stand we find..what do you reckon - HOT FIREMEN!  Selling the firefighter's calendar *fanning - fanning* Okay, they weren't the guys in the pictures, but they were pretty cute!

Then it was the invasion of the HUNKS...the guys from HUNKMANIA tried ever so hard to get us top pay exorbitant prices to have our pics taken with them...needless to say we decided to just look our fill instead...LOL.

Any visit to a Sex expo would not be complete though unless we saw a bunch of guys getting their gear off!  If only they went further! *sigh*...





Then to top it off, none other than a particularly unique artist. He calls himself Pricasso.  I'll let the picture tell the story.....and yes, there was a lot of OMGs going on when we found him...LOL



So what do you do after all that? LOL....

Needless to say, we all had a fantastic time.  We laughed, we spent money...and we figured we'd better bring the dh's with us next year!  LOL


So thanks Jess, Lexxie and Rhian ...we had a wonderful day, and got lots of really useful research!

And special thanks to Rhian Cahill for the pictures :-)

So you didn't pose for a portrait? LOL. Now I think I've seen everything.

Margaret Tanner said...

Wow Maggie, sounds like you all had a ball.

Cheers

Margaret

Maggie Nash said...

Oh no Diane...none of us were going there! It was quite sad really. Just a sad gimmick, but he goes around the country doing it, so good for him. Just not for me!

Helen said...

Maggie

Sounds like you girls had a ball LOL

Have Fun
Helen

Maggie Nash said...

Yep Margaret...we had such a hoot! I have to confess, Jess and I have been twice before, but this year was the biggest selection, and having Lexxie and Rhian along meant that we could be as outrageous as we wanted to be and no one cared!

Maggie Nash said...

Hi Helen...oh yes, it was hilarious!

Thanks for dropping bye!

Keziah Hill said...

Wish I could've gone with you! Looks like a lot of fun.

Jess Dee said...

Oh, yeah, Mags
We had a blast.
LOL. Next year too, I think.

Maggie Nash said...

Keziah...sorry you couldn't make it this year...but next year you're on!

Maggie Nash said...

We did indeed Jess:-)

Suzi Love said...

Wow! Looks like so much fun.
love the toys,
Suzi

Lexxie Couper said...

The day was truly awesome, Maggie. I will never ever look at a hairless penis again however, without thinking of Pricasso *shudder*

:)

Maggie Nash said...

You and me both Lexxie! Yes, it was so much fun. We should do more field trip!

Maggie Nash said...

Thanks Suzi...yep, it was fantastic fun!

It was the best research trip! We are definitely doing it again next year. I still haven't sorted through all the "goodies" I came home with. *grin*
