The Fantasy Bra

Every year Victoria´s Secret create a Fantasy Bra, an exclusive lingerie garment covered in millions of dollars worth of diamonds and other gem stones. The first fantasy bra was advertised in the Victoria’s Secret catalog in 1996 and worn by Claudia Schiffer. It was called the Million Dollar Miracle Bra, with a price tag of exactly $1,000,000. Since 2001 the fantasy bra has also been featured in the fashion shows.

Prior to each Fashion Show, a jewelry designer is contracted to create the bra which will be used as a focal point for promoting the fashion show and also as a centerpiece within it. The company offers the Fantasy Bra for sale as “the ultimate holiday” gift, although with an average price of several million dollars they are not exactly flying of the shelves… In fact the only fantasy bra ever sold was the Million Dollar Miracle Bra from the very first year.

The Red Hot Fantasy bra from 2000, worn by Gisele Bündchen earned a spot in Guinness World Records as the most expensive item of lingerie ever. It included 1300 gem stones, such as rubies and diamonds.

Voyeurism

Is voyeurism becoming the mainstream fetish? I´m serious, with todays´ obsessive need to follow each others every thought, every event, no matter how small or insignificant, on Facebook, Twitter, blogs or whatever social community we prefer. With new reality shows popping up every time we turn our head. How far is the step to voyeurism? Is it not a perversion as long as you´re doing it behind a computer and not sitting in a tree outside someones house with a pair of binoculars in your hands? Is it ok as long as you´re not finding any sexual pleasure in it? Don´t get me wrong I really don´t care if you do find a sexual pleasure in it. In fact I think alot of people would be happier if they´d embrace their secret desires instead of hiding them. However the classic concept of voyeurism is often frowned upon by mainstream society but we keep logging on to Facebook to check our friends latest statuses, and reading blogs about complete strangers personal lives without thinking twice about it. Our whole perception of ourselves and others becomes defined by how many likes we got on our latest status update. It has become expected of us to share every defining moment of our life, from engagements, to home renovations, new furniture, new pedicures, pregnancies, break ups, arguments, weightloss, breakfast, visits to the super market and what time we´re going to bed. So that everybody we´ve ever met and anyone else that might be interested can take part of it.

Love Shall Never Grow Stale. Nor Crumble.

What´s better than sex? Cookies of course! 😉 So who would be better equipped to teach how to keep the love life hot and spicy than a gingerbread couple?

Birds do it, bees do it. And guess what—cookies do it, too. In fact, never have a pair of gingerbread cookies looked so pleased. Yes, the Kama Sutra meets the Joy of Cooking. Featuring an unabashed gingerbread couple, who are photographed in unflinching full color, the Cookie Sutra is a recipe for pleasure.

There is The First Posture, where two are yoked as one (yet the calorie count remains unchanged). The Pair of Tongs, allowing the woman to be open, free, sweet and crunchy. Pounding the Spot, requiring the suppleness of freshly rolled dough. There is Scissors, Autumn Dog, Tripod, The Wheelbarrow, The Snake Trap. And, for the advanced and adventurous, The Suspended Congress—great care must be taken lest the cookies crumble.

I am your…daddy…?

Who knew Darth Vader would show up in my sexy blog theme week? This editorial features a girl fantasizing about getting down and dirty with Vader (power is sexy people, let´s not judge, we´ve all had fantasies we´re less proud of), the man in question doesn´t seem to be quite so up for it though…
Poor girl, good thing it was just a dream.

Luxury pleasures

Luxury pleasures has chosen to reinterpret the world of sex toys with some interesting results. Their product line is inspired by The book of Genesis, containing seven objects each for one day of the week.

On the first day God created light:

Dildo: hot wax candle made with white beeswax and silver base.

Beeswax symbolizes the virgin flesh of Christ and the Virgin Mary.

On the second day God created the heavens:

Haute couture silk blind fold from St Gallen.
The blue sky represents Virgin Mary, who is often depicted with a blue coat called maphorion. Green is also used to represent the Virgin with the Child Jesus. The red roses are a symbol of virginity. Blind fold inspired by the stole of the priest.

On the third day God created vegetation:

Hand made black ebony penis ring from Gabon.
The ring symbolizes the union between God and Man. It is made in black ebony like most Black Madonnas. These figures are associated with rites of fertility and sexuality.

On the fourth day God created the stars:

Hand-made Glass Dildo with 23 carats gold leaf.
Horn inspired by the crescent moon, symbol of regeneration. Moses is often depicted with horns symbols of strength and wisdom, which are also symbols for the Devil and destruction.


On the fifth day God created birds and fish:

Necklace for caressing and tickling; made in solid silver, pink gold and rooster feathers.
Inspired by St. Francis who talked to birds and animals, and who wore a scapular (devotional necklace made of small pieces of fabric that some priests wear on their chests and on their back on top of their clothing). The rooster feathers symbolizes the arrival and resurrection of Jesus. In medieval liturgy, priests used a broom made of feathers (flabellum) to sweep the air and symbolize the heavenly powers who supported Jesus during the night of his death.

On the sixth day God created man:

A whip hand made with human hair, silver ligatures and Carrara marble.
The marble refers to death like the altar in the church represents the Holy Sepulchre. It contains 39 braids, the maximum number of lashes in religious punishments in Jesus’ time.

The seventh day is the rest:

Hand made diary in black leather.
The diary starts with the first 7 days of Genesis written by St. Jerome, from the first printed edition of the Gutenberg Bible. It is followed by 365 pages to write a diary about your own sins and fantasies.
