LOS ANGELES — The Guardian’s Robina Gibb “scoured” Los Angeles’ Sexual Health Expo to report on some of the market’s most innovative and intimate devices that exhibited at the groundbreaking consumer event.

Held Jan. 16-17, SHE L.A. showcased high-tech pleasure products, along with modern-day interpretations of traditional bestsellers. In her article “Something for the weekend, sir? The latest in sex tech,” which can be read here, Gibb focuses on the trend of app-controlled sex toys.

“Today’s entrepreneurial generation might not have invented sex, but they have invented bluetooth-connected sex toys,” Gibb says.

Among the sophisticated products showcased at SHE were IMTOY’s Piu masturbator that syncs with an app that offers a selection of adult films that work with the toy, as well as the company’s Candy kegel “personal trainer” for women. Candy connects via Bluetooth to an app that tracks progress and offers a series of “workouts.”

We-Vibe also showcased its sex tech offerings, including a collection of high-end toys that can be controlled remotely by its We-Connect app — including the new Nova dual stimulator and the We-Vibe Plus for couples.

The New Age trend of healing crystals can also be found in the pleasure products marketplace, and also was showcased at SHE L.A., by exhibitor Chakrubs. “If internet-connected stimulation isn’t quite your thing, you might prefer a softly polished wand or egg made of pure crystal,” Gibb’s article says. “Chakrubs founder Vanessa Cuccia started her company to bring the healing power of crystal, or stone magic, to the realm of sex.”

The Guardian also spotlights Semenette’s POP ejaculating dildo, which was discussed during inventor Stephanie Berman’s “Sex Toys Beyond Orgasm” workshop at SHE L.A.; and exhibitor Edgeplay Gear’s array of BDSM toys.
