International Lingerie Show Kicks Off

LAS VEGAS — The International Lingerie Show officially kicked off today with exhibitors presenting their latest additions.

BeaMonstar Products debuted its latest addition, male sex enhancer Prolatis 2.0.

“We’re now carrying two O Award winners - SexVoltz and Prolatis,” BeaMonstar Products President Jeff Bolanos told XBIZ. “Our goal is to offer retailers a variety of sex enhancement products and ILS is a good place to meet them.”

Screaming O also prominently showcased its newest release, the Twistee Ogee vibrator, with banners that greeted attendees as they approached the exhibition rooms.

“We’re pre-releasing the Ogee and its creating quite a stir,” Screaming O partner Keith Caggiano said while he demonstrated the vibrator’s supple flexibility that makes it go from vibe for solo play to a couple’s sex toy.

The Ogee bends to a point where the U-shape toy can be worn during sex and features grooves to retain lube, Caggiano said.

Williams Trading Co. introduced the latest addition to its team, marketing and promotions coordinator Kelly Szwed, at ILS. She told XBIZ that she is excited to have joined the team and looks forward to taking the company “to the next level.”

“I’m enjoying the show very much,” Szwed said, “I’m excited to see such a broad range of products displayed in addition to lingerie.”

Szwed noted that Williams Trading Co. offers lingerie from manufacturers such as Coquette as well as toys from major manufacturers, including Doc Johnson and CalExotics.

Adult distributor XGen Products’ Andy Green told XBIZ that XGen is quickly becoming a one-stop shop for retailers by offering them flexibility not available when purchasing directly from the manufacturer.

At ILS, XGen’s latest additions include the Power Pole, a tension-rod stripper pole that comes with an hour-long instructional video, tattoo sleeve, clip-on hair extensions, press-on nails, the PPU line of men’s underwear, and a range of complementing items.

ILS festivities continue into the evening today with a fashion show set for 6 p.m.
