Sex toys are still illegal in Thailand


Link Here27th April 2021

Thailand is very liberal about real sex but is bizarrely very uptight about porn and sex toys.

In fact sex toys are totally banned in the country with prohibition laws backed up by serious jail time and fines. The penalty for anyone caught selling, buying, or possessing sex toys is up to three years jail time or a fine of up to 60,000 Thai baht (£1500), or both.

According to Wisit Piemjai, the director of the Postal Customs Service Division, the customs department confiscated over 4,000 sex toys in 2020 alone. Wisit said:

Thailand is a Buddhist country and this is a generational issue. Older people still cannot accept sex toys and nothing can be done to change [that]. The law will remain in place for now,

A sex toy seller named Natasha, told VICE World News that the COVID-19 pandemic has made sex toys one of the hottest selling items online. Sex toys are sold openly in Bangkok's red-light districts, like Nana, Silom, and Patpong. In June 2020, the police raided an adult toy warehouse in a province just south of Bangkok and seized about 1 million Thai baht ($32,000) worth of illegal goods.

There have been efforts to change Thai society's perception of sexual wellbeing. In 2018, activist Nisarat Jongwisan pioneered the movement to legalize sex toys when she spoke out publicly against the Ministry of Culture in a TV program, sparking a debate about sex toys in the country.  In 2018, Nisarat launched a petition asking the government to legalize sex toys. She now plans to launch a new petition following the Thai parliamentary mechanism wherein she'll have to gather 50,000 signatures to submit a bill for a parliamentary vote.

Sex doll influencers are a hit on Instagram


Link Here22nd April 2021

In 2016, after reading a tabloid article about a woman who used plastic surgery to look like a sex doll, T, a sex toy reviewer from the U.S., started an Instagram account for his synthetic partner Celestina. T wanted to see if Celestina, a brunette doll who often sports a pixie cut and glasses, could amass more followers on Instagram than the sex doll wannabe. Within a few months, Celestina had succeeded.

Today, Celestina has more than 3,000 followers, and T is widely credited as a pioneer in the Instagram sex doll community, which numbers somewhere in the hundreds. Other sex doll 'influencers' have as many as 7,000 followers.

The Instagram trend has its roots in a 20-year-old website called The Doll Forum , which boasts over 70,000 members and has large sections devoted to photographing sex dolls. Using a combination of creative photography, in-character social media posts, and, more recently, deepfake videos , these doll photographers are working to make the synthetic women in their lives as close to organic as possible. Their goal is to give their dolls depth and personality, so they can show other community members, and the wider world, how the dolls appear through their eyes. If the owners can make some money off the pursuit, that's all the better.

Childish word games...

Dakota Johnson calls for the 'right' words to be used when referring to sex toys


Link Here10th April 2021
Sex toy maker Maude is attempting to generate a bit of hype by trying to impose politically correct terminology on sex toys. Maude claims that it is tired of seeing an 'outdated and gendered approach', their designers created a line up of vibrators and 'gender-neutral sex essentials'.

Dakota Johnson, who is now an investor and co-creative director, has joined the brand and spouts:

For too long sexual health has been poorly marketed, hyper-aggressive, and highly gendered. Maude is a company based on universal design making modern, body-safe, high-quality essentials for before, during, and after sex, with yourself or with another lovely human. The caliber and aesthetic of these products is excellent and elevated.

Now, Maude is taking things a step further with a new campaign denouncing supposedly outdated language that refers to vibrators as toys. Johnson added:

With our This Is Not A Toy campaign, we aim to activate hearts and minds in an effort to destigmatize sexual and intimate tools. Often the use of language surrounding sexual products is antiquated, gender-specific, and belittling.
