Getting Nooner With A Phone Call

In Japan, even sex goes high-tech
Do you think that gPod will sell in the US??

Fri Jul 27, 1:03 PM ET

TOKYO (AFP) - The Japanese love technology so much that now even sex toys are on the cutting edge.
The "gPod," a phallic-shaped vibrator, is designed to respond automatically to sounds picked up by an accompanying handset, which can plug into anything from a telephone to a music player to a television.

The 25,000-yen (200-dollar) gPod was one of a number of toys that went on public view Friday at Japan's first-ever sex toy expo in suburban Tokyo.

"You can use it in many ways, for example hooking it up to your mobile phone," said Ichiro Kameda, the machine's inventor.

"The dildo vibrates through the same waves as a voice. So one of the ideas is that you can use it here in Tokyo when your boyfriend in New York is talking to you on the phone."

Kameda said he had spent four years trying to design a product when he hit upon the concept. He declined to say how the idea came to him.

Nearly 160 companies or groups are exhibiting products and services at the three-day Adult Treasure Expo 2007, including sex toys, sex machines, costumes and videos.



Not Quite like the Man With the Golden Gun

But Better!!!

Nude blonde, gold stilettos and a Ferrari..

Tue Jul 24, 5:36 AM ET---Reuters

BERLIN (Reuters) - A mysterious blonde paid a visit to a petrol station shop in the small eastern German town of Doemitz on Sunday -- wearing nothing but a pair of golden stilettos and a thin gold bracelet.
The tall, slender woman strolled into the shop in the town of Doemitz on the warm afternoon and bought cigarettes, petrol station employee Ines Swoboda told Reuters on Monday.
"I wasn't surprised because she's come in naked before -- she's a very nice woman," Swoboda said, adding none of the other customers were bothered. The woman could have faced charges of creating a public disturbance if anyone had complained.
A quick-witted customer did, however, snap pictures of the woman believed to be about 30 years old as she walked back to a waiting Ferrari and climbed into the passenger seat. Several of those photos appeared in the German media on Monday.


Bring Me the Head of the Cowardly Lion...

Cops seeking heads up on Cowardly Lion

MCDONALD, Pa. - Following the yellow brick road has not led police to the thieves who took the head off the Cowardly Lion in a Wizard of Oz display.
The Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of the West — her eyes glowing red — face east on Noblestown Road in McDonald, a town about 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.
The lion's head, which was designed to swing freely, has been missing for about two weeks.
Built by Richard Kendall, a town resident who died just a few months ago, the display has become something of a hallmark, as well as a favorite among children.
The theft has especially disturbed Kendall's widow, Loretta. She said if the Lion's head isn't returned, the family will rebuild it.
"We really want the other one," she said. "Like I said, it's special to us."

Japanese soak in their noodles

HAKONE, Japan (AFP) - The Japanese love their noodles so much that some of them are literally ready to dive in to their bowl of ramen.

A Japanese spa on Saturday opened special baths meant to resemble ramen, complete with bath salt shaped like the dangling delicacy, a giant pair of chopsticks overhead and water the aroma of pepper.
"The aroma of pepper is said to have the effects of refreshing your mind, warming your burned-out heart and inflaming your passion," explained a statement by spa complex Hakone Kowakien Yunessun in Hakone, one of Japan's most popular hot spring resorts.
Ramen lovers in bathing suits turned into ingredients in the broth, jumping into the three tubs shaped like ramen bowls underneath noodle decorations hanging over their heads.
"Customers may have been puzzled first, but I think they enjoyed it ... because the hot water smells good, like pepper," said Yusuke Sato, a spa employee who poured in the noodle-looking salt.
Hakone Kowakien Yunessun has offered a variety of creative baths including some filled with wine and coffee. Last year it came up with one resembling curry.
"I want to think of more ideas that surprise people," Sato said.
