• A behind-the-scenes glimpse into the trade hall at the Venus Sex Show in Berlin. Penis bean bags, porn DVD vending machines, and a guy with a hands-free masturbator await. Oh, and not to mention the crazy fucking machine at the end…

    Birthing Balls At first glance they look like birthing balls - the giant extra-strong beach balls that are used for exercise by pregnant women and (probably) people who don't pronounce "pilates" to rhyme with "pirates".

    But take a second look, there's most evidently something amiss. Or in addition. The brains behind the Sexcerciseball have taken the common or garden (and inoffensive) birthing ball and turned it into something all the more exciting - and they're claiming a world first in the process.

    Intimate Attitudes Plus Size Lace and Charmeuse Bustier

    One word: Wow!

    The new Plus Size collection from Intimate Attitudes is really rather special.

    This fabulous Lace and Charmeuse Bustier (left) is embellished with dazzling sequins and comes with a matching G-string.

    If you're looking for something a little different then check out this beautiful Chinese Jacquard strapless corset, which has a lace-up back and 4 removable garters.

    There's something for everyone in this exquisite range – you can view the complete Intimate Attitudes collection here.

    "Proceed with caution" is the mantra of the day when it comes to a visit to Venus, Europe's (if not the West's) biggest sex show. The vast majority of exhibitors are here to show off off their XXX-rated pornographic wares, so you're rarely more than 6 feet away from a 40-inch plasma screen showing, well, 40 inches of rutting, sucking and fu… You can guess the rest.

    So, with caution in mind, our first despatch from the show floor is relatively tame, focusing on a couple or three products that wouldn't look out of place in your living room - that is, if your living room happens to be in a brothel…

    The new range of Ballbra underwear is cunningly designed to help you and your partner enjoy better sex – and you can keep your pants on!

    And because of its comfortable and practical design, you can wear a Ballbra all day and every day, so if you're looking for a lift and plenty of support, then the Ballbra is the answer.

    Liberator Wedge

    The other day I got an email from Ruth, giving me a link to a little story about George Clooney being pictured carrying what appears to be a Liberator Wedge. Now Ruth is a dear lass, but bless her, clearly behind the times. I mean, who finds George Clooney attractive anymore? Surely his sexual escapades (or doctor-ordered therapy, I'm not here to speculate) are of no interest to the common woman? I laughingly showed this email to the girls in the office.

    Twenty minutes and half a pint of blood later, I found that I had, in fact, been mistaken about the attractiveness and viability of one Mr. George Clooney…
