Pipedream’s mainstream coverage continues with a Tuggie spotlight on Comedy Central’s @midnight on Tuesday night. Hosted by comedian Chris Hardwick, the game show rips headlines from the day’s news and distributes points based on comedians’ improvised jokes about the cited events. This week, Pipedream’s infamous Tuggie was highlighted in a bit regarding the pending brick and mortar Amazon store:

Tuggie

The fuzzy sock that warms your cock no matter where you go!!!

Amazon has revolutionized the way we shop, putting all manner of products at our fingertips from the complete works of Proust to the Tuggie, the “fuzzy sock that warms your cock.” I’m wearing one right now. It’s why I host with such confidence.

Sex Education Sells! Sabrina Dropkick Talks Sexpert Life with XBIZ Magazine

#babealert

XBIZ did a freakin’ incredible special report on sex education this month, with articles covering the rising demand for sexual health information and the array of educational resources that are now available. There’s one article in particular that focuses on sex education that’s offered in the sex toy manufacturing industry, so of course my girl Ariana, XBIZ pleasure products editor, just had to ask for my input. ;)

For manufacturers of pleasure products, sex education is vital to business. Several companies have taken it upon themselves to guide consumers through sexual exploration by not just providing a wide range of tools but also the know-how to use them. 

Manufacturers such as CalExotics, Pipedream, Doc Johnson, and Topco have sexperts on staff to directly provide advice and information to consumers and retailers. 

“I primarily talk to customers through email and social media,” said Sabrina Dropkick, Pipedream’s sexpert and social media manager. “The variety of questions is pretty vast, though the most common are probably toy suggestions, penis enhancement, and first-time anal advice. My favorite inquiries come from people who want to better satisfy their partner or want to introduce something new to their routine — I just love introducing people to the infinite realm of pleasure that sex toys can provide.”

My “Pegging Manifesto” is probs my fave Pipedream blog that I’ve written. YOU GUISE, I JUST REALLY LOVE BUTT FUCKING BOYS, OKAY?!?!?!?

According to Dropkick, offering sex advice and handling Pipedream’s social media go hand in hand. 

“Since a majority of my work is done online, it offers people the safety of anonymity and relieves the anxiety typically induced by face-to-face conversation,” she said. “I also do a lot of blogging and we’re about to launch a new video series, and I think having these types of educational resources readily available is extremely valuable — it’s anticipating people’s needs and answering their questions before they even have to work up the courage to ask.”

Dropkick notes that the need for sex-ed is becoming more evident as it increasingly garners more attention from the media. 

“John Oliver’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ recently did a phenomenal story on the crisis of sex education in America (only 13 states require that sex education be scientifically accurate — um, what?!) Celebrities are publicly coming out of various closets, sparking plenty of much-needed conversation about gender and sexuality,” Dropkick said. 

Throwback to that time our Icicles were on John Oliver's "Last Week Tonight"

 ”And with the array of communities who gather online to share their experiences and network, there’s a place on the Internet for anyone to find the resources and relatability they need to feel more comfortable with and explore their particular sexuality. That’s what I think it’s really about — it’s less about making sex education ‘popular’ and more about relieving the taboo and shame associated with sex. Once we can achieve this, then sex education will become a routine occurrence. The more we talk about it, the more ‘normalized’ it becomes, and sharing our personal stories is especially effective because it brings a tangible life to the issues at hand.” 

So all of the gold stars to Ariana for writing a kick ass piece about some super important stuff, and for also having really, really, ridiculously good taste in quotes. ;) Check out the entire November XBIZ and the article below (you can catch magnified images here and here.) There a tons of other sweet ass Pipedream coverage from the issue as well, so why don’tcha just put down the gotdamn porno for once and beat your mental meat for a minute, eh?

Our umbrella company, Diamond Products, also caught a few glimmers of the Australian spotlight with an awesome Jimmyjane Form 5 review and an editorial introducing our latest acquisition of Sir Richard’s Condoms

Billed as “Pleasure Time Three,” Form 5 works for men, women, and couples. For women, the theory is that the fluttering wings caress the labia whilst the dome targets the clitoris, rather like combining a pebble vibrator with a bullet. You can also use the wings for on-point clitoral massage of a different sensation, or on nipples and other sensitive areas – for example, the temples and sinuses (no, not a sex thing, I just found it helped ease the pain.) —Mia More, journalist and reviewer, cliterati.co.uk

STIMULATE ALL OF THE THINGS!!!!!!

Sir Richard’s Founder, Mathew Gerson, who in 2005 started online retailer Econscious Market, which sells eco-friendly products and donates up to 10% of the retail price of each sale to charity, was reading a book about Dr. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health. He learned that condoms, which are cheap to produce and the most effective way to avoid HIV and other infections, were no readily available to those disadvantaged regions. So in 2009, Mathew founded Sir Richard’s Condoms. Its mission is to address a massive global shortage of condoms. To do this, the company has the unique philosophy of donating one condom to a developing nation for every one that they sell. To date, Sir Richard’s has donated over 2.2 million of them. With sexual wellness and reproductive health in mind, they chose to make Sir Richard’s Condoms of all-natural latex and silicone lubricant. They also left out a range of seriously unsexy chemicals (parabens, spermicide, or glycerin), common ingredients in some other brands’ products. —page 29, Synergy

Pipedream Gets Shout Out on Conan!

It turns out that Chatsworth – AKA the Porn Capital of the World – isn’t only home to adult studios and manufacturers, but Hollywood film locations too! On last night’s episode of Conan, comedian Kristen Schaal discussed shooting the FOX hit Last Man on Earth in a studio that’s surrounded by dildo factories – and even name-drops her favorite one!

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 9.52.56 AM

“Our studio is kinda sandwiched between two working dildo factories. One of them’s called Pipedream!”

Conan is shocked. “You’re serious? They’re churning out dildos?”

“Yeah! Real live dildos! Hot off the rack!”

The two factories mentioned are actually two of Pipedream’s locations - the manufacturer rules Lassen Street with offices and manufacturing facilities spanning 220,000 square feet.

“What a pleasant surprise to find one of our favorite celebrities in our neck of the woods!” said Social Media Manager Sabrina Dropkick. “We can’t wait to give Kristen and her crew a tour of our massive headquarters and a bundle of their very own Pipedream goodies.”
