Another one from the "You couldn't make this up" department: 58 year old US judge Donald Thompson currently stands accused of three counts of indecent exposure because he was allegedly seen using a penis pump whilst presiding in court. The soaraway Sun tells us:
We're really not quite sure what to make of this: a new contraption from our American cousins that's designed to take the effort out of sex.
The BodyBouncer is an shaped like a small coffee table but is made from steel tubes with a rubber sheet stretched across the top. The sheet's got a hole in the middle. (Can you see where this going?). If the gentleman gets underneath the BodyBouncer, his bits can go through the hole in the rubber sheet, letting his partner sit on the BodyBouncer from above, accommodate him and have all their body weight supported by the BodyBouncer. Boing!
It's a citywide case of "Not tonight darling, I've got a headache". But in Hong Kong, it's not the girls saying this traditional passion killer, but men. Turns out that the pace of life is so crazy in the city fondly known as Honkers that chaps prefer work to sex. HK women are rightly miffed about this so they've turned to their own devices (see what we did there?) to get what they need.

"The sale of love aids for women has rocketed in Hong Kong because men say they prefer work to sex. A survey revealed blokes would rather get down to business in the professional rather than the passion sense. So a high street pharmacy chain began selling sex toys alongside soap and shampoo. Vibrators have been a surprise hit at Watson's group - controlled by tycoon Li Ka-shing. Delighted sex education bosses say the news could help the sexually repressed city come out of its shell.

"To emphasise the health image and role of the products, such gadgets are better sold in established dispensaries than in 'sex shops' which give an image more on the entertainment side."
Taking your buzzing best friend on holiday is certainly a good way to let you get fully relaxed - but you've got to be careful about what your destination country thinks of sex toys. Despite its racy reputation thanks to that dreadful song "One Night In Bangkok", Thailand is actually a very demure country, where the sale of sex toys is illegal. The Phuket Gazette recently reported Police Colonel Paween Pongsirin as stating "It is illegal to open a sex shop in Phuket or anywhere else in Thailand. Such shops are not congruent with Thai morals or Thai law" while Sittisak Jai-Uae, Chief Inspector of Phuket Customs Office, said: “It is illegal to to buy or sell sex toys, or open a sex shop, in Thailand. It is also illegal to import such devices to Thailand. If you order sex toys on the Internet or have friends send them to you, and we discover them, we are required to confiscate them.” Words worth heeding there - you don't want to get in trouble with the Thai police. If you do take toys travelling with you, it's best to be discreet - our range of funky sex toy storage items are just the ticket for this, or you might just want to get all James Bond about it and get the vibrator that looks like a mobile phone.
