A police officer s son with an underwear fetish broke into a woman s house to steal her knickers and sex toys, a court heard. Mark Cox, 22, pocketed a set of house keys belonging to former school friend Emma Pinches, 21, after going to a party at her home in February. The hospital porter then used the keys to let himself in to the property while Emma was out to steal her underwear and dildos.
Magistrates heard she became suspicious when items of lingerie and sex aids started to go missing over the next few weeks.
Prosecuting Julie Costello said: The day after the party the victim noticed a set of house keys were missing. Over the next few days she started to notice that items of her underwear were going missing as well as her sex toys. Emma suspected Cox may be responsible when she received a text from him in March to ask whether she would be out with her boyfriend that evening.
Officers also discovered CS gas spray as well as a police helmet, handcuffs, jacket and stab vest in his bedroom. Cox claimed he had bought the police uniform items off eBay to use for kinky role-playing sex romps with his ex-girlfriend. At Northampton Magistrates Court on Monday Cox pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary, one count of possessing a weapon designed for the discharge of CS gas and possessing a police uniform.
Defending Alistair Evans revealed his client had taken the items at a time when he was being driven by a fetish for women s underwear. He said his client had bought the police uniform as memorabilia because his father and grandfather were both police officers. He added: He accepts he had taken the items of underwear from the victim s house but there was no element of vandalism and he had caused no form of damage to the woman s house.
The CS spray was bought from a garage in France. It has never been used. The court was told Cox has since undergone counselling in a bid to overcome his underwear addiction.
He will be sentenced at Northampton Crown Court next month.
A new sex shop opens on Poole High Street
Sex shops are renowned for their controversy, with their sexualised displays often causing shock among local residents who would rather banish them from the high street.
New sex shop Purrfectly Discreet , upset traders and shoppers on Poole High Street last week, after it opened its doors opposite an outlet selling school uniforms.
The store, which has an over 18 s warning label on the door offers a range of sex toys, clothing and accessories . Shop owner, Joe Budimir, says he believes the store will be very popular with local residents and shoppers
Since being open, everything has been really positive . We have had a really big response from couples, single sex females and the general people across Dorset
I don t think it makes an impact at all that we are opposite the (school uniform) clothes store .
We have stayed away from the style of the typical seedy back of the high street type sex shops with the blacked out windows and have done a lot of work on the visual design to ensure it is appropriate.
Shop owner John Budimir
Mr Budimir also has plans to expand the business and has applied to Borough of Poole for a sex shop licence that would enable him to also sell explicit R18 DVD s . However, before a licence is granted the council will take the stores location into consideration.
We believe we have done all the things that the council have asked, we are not sleazy looking . If we are granted a licence the council can then add further restrictions including opening times and what is allowed in the windows, said Mr Budimir.
Local shoppers and traders fear that the appearance of the store, which features two large posters of women in lingerie in its windows, will have a negative effect on the image of the town, which is often used a walkthrough for tourists heading to Poole Quay.
Adult stores have increasingly become regular icons in town centres across the country with Ann Summers reporting a 400% increase in their sex toy sales last year.
This boom in provocative products can be accredited to the unprecedented success of the erotic fiction novel Fifty Shades of Grey, which became the UK s best selling book of all time last August.
Do you think sex shops should have a place on our high street ?

This Friday night, May 17, I’ll be hosting the monthly gay party DICKSLAP at the Eagle. There will be go-go men, there will be Jell-O shots or Jell-O injections (as seen above) and there will be hundreds of Oxballs1 sex toys that I will be giving away. My huzzzzband, DJ TROUBLE, will be there playing records in his underpants.
See there’s that, too.

Michael Bay s Pain and Gain, as we noted in our review1, is totally nuts. It s about as extreme as that kind of movie can be — full of violent shenanigans and roided-out bodybuilders. But the craziest thing to happen on the set of Pain and Gain, according to Bay, didn t involve explosions or Dwayne The Rock Johnson s giant biceps.
It involved, um, personal pleasure devices.
In an interview about the movie, Bay explained that some of the sex toys, meant as set decoration (since the criminals, led by Mark Wahlberg, hide out in a warehouse formerly used for the distribution of sex toys), mysteriously went missing2. We bought $75,000 worth of sex toys to stock the sex-toy warehouse. I could have filmed the crew coming in that day because they d stop and see these things — anatomically correct vajayjays and this butt (everyone would touch the butt because it felt real) — and it was hysterical.
We were going to return all the sex toys to get three-quarters of our money back, but they started disappearing. We were like, ‘Who is taking the sex toys?’”
While it s fun to picture Michael Bay dressed like Sherlock Holmes, trying to figure out which member of the cast and crew was walking away with the sex toys, that probably didn t happen. What s kind of amazing, though, is that these sex toys weren t very, um, subtle.
But hey, who are we to judge?

Sonic screwdriver whipping cane? Uh-huh. Nintendo and Sega Genesis controller ass-slappers?
You bet your cherry-red buttcheeks! Now call me old fashioned, but I like my sex toys how I like my art projects: made out of things I found at the dollar store.

Our generation is all about multipurpose or multifunction. The easier and more convenient, the better. We don t have the time to waste on having one item serve only one purpose.
The San Francisco-based sex toy start up company, Crave, apparently feels the same way.
You may have heard of the company before. Just last year, Crave created a flash drive slash vibrator that raised about $100,000 via a crowd sourcing investment website, and garnered tons of online attention.
This year, Crave is at it again, by creating a market for foreplay jewelry. Essentially, a line of necklaces and bracelets meant for both aesthetic and erotic pleasure.
An example of one of these designs is The Droplet, which is a 43-inch stainless steel chain necklace that will retail for about $100.
The necklace can easily be slipped underneath ones clothing for so-called discreet play.
The sex toy industry is worth around $5 billion, so there s definitely a market for such products.
Will you be purchasing one of these multipurpose toys?

(Warning: The following report contains details of a sexually graphic nature that may offend some readers.)
It’s a case of soldiers gone wild: An eyewitness tells WND a U.S. Army installation in Hawaii held a Valentine’s Day official “training” event in which male and female soldiers were offered prizes in a race to put condoms on sex toys.
WND confirmed a presentation on sexually transmitted diseases had taken place at the Schofield Barracks in Oahu, Hawaii, on Feb. 14. The source, who asked to remain nameless due to the nature of the source’s job – told WND the training event began with a presentation on substance abuse and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
“Once the slideshow was complete, the instructors asked for four volunteers,” the source said.
Keeping you and your partner happy between the sheets can be difficult after awhile–you’ve done all the positions, said all the words and used every room in your house. What’s next? What’s new? What do you move on to make things interesting again? Well, you can always try dressing up and role playing, but if you’re looking for something a little easier with a little more direction a toy just might be the way to go.
In fact, one in two women1 these days own and use a sex toy, so if you don’t currently own one, you partner just might. Check out this list of the top sex toys for women in the case that your partner doesn’t own one or you just want to try something new.
Vibrators are the best selling toy. They are reliable, they are unintimidating and are great for solo and partner play. You can find them in varying sizes, shapes and options. While there are hundreds of different kinds of vibrators, they are all great go-to toys that can always get you and your partner there.
This is a good choice if you’re already accustomed to vibrators and want to take your play to a whole new level. This toy is great for solo or partner play and can help you unlock that ever-elusive g-spot orgasm. These vibrators tend to be long and skinny with a wide vibrating ball on the end. This ball is designed to specifically target the g-spot. Use one of these on your partner and they’ll love you forever.
A strap-on is a great way to maximize your vibrator or dildo play. A strap on is a harness that is worn like a pair of underwear, whether it be thong or bikini style, and comes with an attached dildo or vibrator. A strap on can be fun because it allows the wearer to really feel like they are apart of the process. Using a strap on isn’t quite as straight forward as using a vibrator though, so be sure to check out this guide2 before purchasing one.
A tongue vibrator is a fun way to make oral even more intense. Typically made of silicone, a tongue vibrator slips over your tongue and has a tiny vibrating bullet that will tantalize and tease your partner. Be on the look out for a pack that has two tongue vibrators–that way you can both get in on the fun.
Nipple clamps are great for a girl who has very sensitive ones. You can find these toys at adameve.com3 in varying options. You can get them in a fun flirty feather style, a chained together metal style or even ones that come with mini shocks; it really just depends on what you’re both into. You will find that they not only provide pleasurable sensations for the wearer, but are always very sexy when worn.
Lube4 is a great accompaniment to any kind of sexual play, whether you use it with each other or with toys. Lube can help get things going or keep toys and fingers moving about freely. Have fun with it and get flavored lube or lube that heats up as the friction goes up. Be sure to stick to water-based lube. While silicone-based lube isn’t bad, water-based lube is the only lube that is 100% safe for women, condoms and toys to use.
