New Workshop! Tantric Lovers by The Love Coach

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Jacqueline Hellyer, The Love Coach, is Sydney’s very own sexpert and her workshops have helped hundreds to discover, rediscover and explore intimacy, sex and pleasure. We are very excited to announce that she has added an all new workshop to her popular workshop calendar.

Tantric Lovers – Zen and the Art of Making Love, is a one day workshop that is all about connection, sensuality and connection.

Jacqueline Hellyer

This workshop focuses exclusively on the Tantric/Taoist/energetic aspects of sex and sexuality. Consider it ‘Zen and the Art of Making Love’.

Whereas Luscious Lovers is held in a luscious wine bar, Tantric Lovers is run in a luscious yoga studio.

This workshop is about deepening trust and openness, so a range of activities cover breath, feeling and moving energy in the body, sharing energy, communication between couples and connected touch.

The first Tantric Lovers workshop was run recently and was an absolutely gorgeous and moving day.  To let the participants describe it in their own words (better than me telling you how wonderful it is!):

Jacqueline has done it again! What a way to reconnect for Valentine’s Day. I’m so glad that we invested our money in this course, rather than chocolates and roses! The course helped us remember the importance of completely “being” with each other – not just physically, but on a much deeper level. We will take this into the bedroom and practice the art of real love-making, not just sex!”

“Loved it – my love life has SOOO shifted to another level….you showed me in an amazing way, how I was able to tap into a field of energy that I didn’t realize existed when it comes to lovemaking and intimacy which shifts the whole experience to another level. I am now better able to remain focused and present to the whole experience.”

“Thank you for such a unique and positive experience. It’s very refreshing to interact and see so many couples still so deeply in love after so many years. Today society puts too much focus on divorce and negativity and not enough time on teaching couples the amazing re-connecting techniques that we learnt in your wonderful workshops. We loved every minute of our Tantric Lovers experience. It was such a beautiful experience to be surrounded by so much love. Thank you for filling up our love bank!”

“Thank you very much for running the workshop. It was fabulous! It was a great day spent expressing and learning to express even deeper our love for each other. It has had a lovely positive effect on our relationship, and this boosted love has extended out to all other relationships in my life. It’s brought a spark to my life for ‘communion’.  And with the basket of golden-egg goodies (exercises) we received on the day, I feel resourced-up to explore what was previously unknown and a little intimidating. “

Upcoming Tantric Lovers Workshops

22 May 2011   –   Yoga To Go, 106-108 Crystal St, Petersham   –   10am to 6pm

Jacqueline Hellyer: Your Bedroom, Your Sanctuary

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

What is your bedroom like? Is it a relaxing and rejuvenating place separate from the cares of the world? When you walk into your bedroom, do you go ‘aah’ and smile because you feel more restful just being there? Is your bedroom a sanctuary you can chill out together in?

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions – well done! Your bedroom is as it should be, and because of this you probably find that sex is something you can transition into fairly easily.

If it’s not, then it’s redecorating time! Think about colours and textures, music and lighting. Ban all technology except for your music player. Remove family photos other than happy romantic ones of yourselves. And keep it tidy.

Now it will feel like a sanctuary. You’ll be able to walk across the threshold of your bedroom and leave the cares the world behind, entering into a peaceful place where you can wind down and chill out together.

Yes, chill out together.

I find that too many people only use their bedroom for sleep and sex, they don’t go to the bedroom unless they’re planning one or both of those activities. Then it can get a bit awkward about how to move into some sexual activity. Or they wait until they’re already under the covers, and by then one of both of them really can’t be bothered, they’d rather sleep! (I include myself in that category, once I’m under the covers – it’s sleep time!)

I encourage you to start using your bedroom as a place of mutual chill-out and connection. Take a cup of tea or glass of wine up there and sit on your bed and just chat. Play good music, have the lighting set at a relaxing level. Lounge on the pillows. Massage each other’s feet as you chat. Whatever. Then you will probably find it’s easier to transition into some sensual touch, kissing, sensual undressing, and voila – you’re making love!

This approach to ‘getting to sex’ works. If one or both of you are having trouble initiating or getting going. It may be that you’re not leading up to it well. I’ve been talking about the importance of ‘beforeplay’ lately, this is taking the beforeplay into the bedroom, which makes the transition to foreplay easier and more natural.

Or not. It’s not just a way to get sex happening. More importantly, it’s a way to get the two of you bonding and connecting in an intimate way. It’s important that you learn to hang out in this way without it necessarily leading to sex, so there’s no pressure (on the lower desire person) or expectation (on the higher desire person). Having this easy connection between you, with open communication, is how you will have both the desire for sex, the ability to communicate where you’re at in relation to sex, and the time and space to create and consummate that desire.

Turn Out The Lights: Earth Hour Tonight!

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

Switch off your lights for Earth Hour on 26 March

Since its debut in Sydney in 2007 – when approximately 2.2 million individuals turned their lights off to take a stand against climate change – Earth Hour has become a global movement, with 128 countries and territories taking part in 2010.

Earth Hour is a call to action for everyone. It starts with a flick of the switch at 8:30pm on 26 March 2011 for an hour, in a collective display of commitment to protect the one thing that unites us all – the planet.

This year, for the first time, the Earth Hour Awards will honour a variety of people, groups, and businesses that are doing their bit to support climate change action. The awards will take place on Sydney Harbour as part of the FREE community events being held across the city.

Here in Newtown dozens of restaurants and small bars will turn off the lights and spark up the candles for a very different Saturday Night on King Street feeling.

To sign up for Earth Hour 2011 and show your support, as well as find information on how you can go beyond the hour click here.

New Product: Daring Lemongrass Relaxing Spray

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

We’ve had a lot of calls lately about finding more natural products to enhance the sex lives of all of us. So when we heard that Intimate Organics, makers of HYDRA (one of our most popular lubricants) were bringing their Daring Lemongrass Anal Relaxing Spray to Australia, we just had to get it in.

So, in stock from today is the fab new spray from Intimate Organics. Called ‘Daring” this back door spray contains certified organic ingredients like clove, goji berry and organic aloe which along with lemongrass give this product unique potency and a fresh natural scent.

Simply apply a couple of sprays to the area and within 3 – 10 minutes the anal sphincter begins to relax! How easy is that? It’s safe to use with condoms, water-based and silicone-based lubricants and toys too.

So if you need something to help ease the play without numbing you, this is the natural alternative.

How To Give Good Phone Sex

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

When I met my partner we were both on vacation with groups of other people. By the time we got to kiss for the first time, the trip was over.  He was on his way back to Melbourne, and I was bound for Sydney. This may have been the end of it all, except for the fact that we had successfully exchanged phone numbers.  Little did I know that this would turn into my first phone sex experience ever.

In the beginning I was nervous because I barely knew him, but we were both so into each other that eventually my prudishness flew out the window and I became an expert. Now that we’ve been together for years, we still enjoy a fun roll over the 3G when we’re apart for any length of time. Without getting too graphically specific, here are some tips to having great sex over the phone.

Be Descriptive

The most important thing to remember when you’re having sex on the phone is that your ‘lover’ can’t see you. Real sex has a big visual component which is suddenly missing from the equation. The best way to get around this challenge is to be as descriptive as possible. I’m not saying you have to bust out the dictionary, but certain key phrases will do the trick (think hot, wet, soft). Next, always be specific about your target audience – namely, him! Finish your descriptions with a reminder that it’s all because of him that you feel this way, and you wish you could be there in person to show him how much you miss his touch.


Just like anything in a relationship, communication is the key to great phone sex. Especially during  “foreplay”, keep talking. Use a sexy, sultry, almost whispery tone of voice to describe your virtual journey of exploring his body from his shoulders, across his chest and over his belly and down…you get the picture. When you get ‘down’ to the nitty-gritty, pretend you’re actually there in person and describe what you’re doing. “I’m stroking you now,” goes a lot further than, say, “If I were there, I would…” Things are getting hot and heavy now, so there’s no time to be worrying about whether or not you’re talking in the conditional future.

Bringing it Home

Pardon the euphemism, but it generally is the ultimate goal of phone sex to have a fantastic orgasm. And the great thing about long distance nookie is that you’re actually pleasuring yourself, so you not only know exactly what you like, but you also know when you’re going to reach the point of no return. You can use this to your advantage to reach the finish line together in one ecstatic collective moan. When you’re both done, you need to say the same things you would say if you were actually in bed together, about how much you enjoyed it, and that you’re imagining putting your head on his shoulder and falling asleep.


Whether it’s a new fling or a long distance relationship, learning how to have great phone sex works wonders for keeping you and your partner satisfied. Once you get over the initial shyness, you’ll find the words will just flow off your tongue, and in the heat of the moment, you won’t care if you sometimes talk over each other and things get a little ‘messy’. Sex is supposed to be that way!


Product News: Evolved Vibes Selection Now In Store

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

We are always on the lookout for new toys that fit three very important rules:

  1. They must be Phthalate & Toxin Free.
  2. They must have quality parts and technology.
  3. They must be fun, attractive, and easy to use, clean and store away.

With rules like that you can imagine it’s pretty difficult to find new products for our shelves that don’t fall into the ‘deluxe’ or ‘expensive’ categories. In fact, out of tens of thousands of possible products, we only stock about 800 toys in-store – the best of the best you might say.

So when Evolved started hitting Aussies shelves last year we tried out a bunch of their models and were delighted to be able to select four of them for our 2011 collection.

All are made from phthalate-free materials, have superior motors, are battery operated, come with their own storage containers  and, most importantly, they are affordable too!

So here they are….

Crupier Roulette Edition by EvolvedCROUPIER ROULETTE $90

If you’re looking for some action, then the Roulette Edition™ is the odds on favorite to deliver unique satisfaction. You’ll also be able to parlay your action with the Roulette’s flexible shaft and tip, and true multi-speed wheel controller. And while the design might look like a little much this is an easy toy to enjoy, especially with a water-based lubricant.

Honey Bunny - rabbit vibrator by EvolvedHONEY BUNNY RABBIT VIBE $75

Sweet yet powerful, stylish and functional, the True Love Edition™ blends contemporary design with classic sensuality. We love that it doesn’t have tons of modes and its more compact design  means its easier to use, clean and store away – especially since it comes with a metal storage case.

Silicone Bliss Vibrator by EvolvedSILICONE BLISS $80

Part of a new line of vibrators made for women called Fleur De Lis, Silicone Bliss is the first of the new Evolved Novelties vibes to come to MaXXX Black. It is wonderfully well-designed with graduating contours sculpted to fit the natural contours of most women. For this reason it offers additional comfort – so it’s a good first-time vibrator.

Fleur De Lis Seduction Vibrator by EvolvedFLEUR DE LIS SEDUCTION $50

This sensuously shaped slim multi-speed vibrator is made from 100% phthalalte and latex-free materials yet still offers superior texture and feel, especially when used with a good water-based iubricant. featuring 3 speeds, an easy-to-use push button control (in the base) and a waterproof case, this is a perfect vibe for pleasuring you, and your loved one.

Welcome to the world of Evolved Novelties, MaXXX Black Style!

Product News: Rubber 55 Update

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

We are literally counting the days until the arrival of London’s Rubber 55 latex fashion line.

We know there are lots of rubber lovers out there who are just as excited as we are, and today we are very excited to let you all know that we are expecting the first shipment of Rubber 55 around the 26th March.

Coming in the first shipment will be the Rubber 55 ‘Classic” range.  There will be something for everyone, and we have selected pieces to please the majority of latex enthusiasts. There will be 4 different styles of hoods, leggings, stockings, short and long gloves, suspenders, tops, and a couple of bottoms.  This first range will all be in classic, shiny black!

With the amount of interest we have received since the announcement of Rubber 55 coming to MB, we suspect this first collection to sell out very quickly. We’re thrilled with the support and feedback you’ve all given us so far because the better this first collection is received the sooner we can expand the line and bring even more wonderful latex goodies to Sydney.

When Rubber 55 does arrive we’d like to encourage all of you latex fans to drop in during the week, during the day if you can manage it. This will ensure Heidi can help you and give you the advice you need to get the right fit. Our staff are currently undergoing the funnest training ever in order to get ready for the latex invasion. As you know MaXXX is the most popular adult store in Sydney so avoid the crush on a Friday and Saturday so you get the attention you need.

Keep checking the blog and our facebook page for details as they emerge. This launch is going to be huge!



Events: Earth Hour – One Week To Go!

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries/territories participating. Global landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries/territories officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.

On Saturday 27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate action. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas switched off. People across the world from all walks of life turned off their lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.

Earth Hour 2011 will take place on Saturday 26 March at 8.30PM (local time). This Earth Hour we are all encouraged to ‘go beyond the hour’ so after lights go back on think about what else you can do to make a difference.

Also this year is the inaugural WWF Earth Hour Awards, which will honour and celebrate those people and organisations that are working hard to change our planet for the better.

If you have a cafe or late trading business here in Newtown get your lucky self down to the Watershed Resource Centre on King Street to pick up your FREE soy candles so your business can particpate in Earth Hour this year.
