Product News: Vivishine Latex Care @ MaXXX Black!

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

We brought you the fabulous Rubber55 all the way from London so it seemed only natural that we found the world’s BEST latex care products to keep your new rubber gear shiny, slick and sexy.

So we found Vivishine! And it will be here in just a couple of weeks!

Since latex is an especially sensous material, and being a natural product,  it needs the right kind of maintenance to preserve it’s brilliance, colour and shine. We’ve found that some latex enthusiasts are using below-grade silicone lubricants to shine and prep their latex fashion. This can have a terrible effect on good-quality latex. There are over four thousand different grades of silicone and only a few of those are actually suitable for latex gear. Pjur Cult, Pjur Bodyglide and Vivishine are among the few who fall into that category.

So what will we have in stock?

Vivishine

Vivishine is careful intensive care for all latex and rubber articles. It conditions and shines your latex and makes it look brand-spanking-new every time. It’s a miracle for latex, giving a deep lustre and permanent shine to your latex gear.

Free of any solvents and odour-neutral, it even helps to protect your fashion while in storage.

Vivishine will be available in a 120ml bottle.

Vividress

With Vividress getting into and out of your rubber gear has never been easier or sexier.

Its ingredients maintain the natural latex rubber material and make your skin feel slick, sexier and sensual against the garment.

Vividress is perfect for transparent latex garments as it actually increases the brilliance of thinner latex pieces.

Free of any solvents, oil or grease and odour-neutral.

Vividress will come in an economical 220ml bottle.

We’ll be making a big fuss when Vivishine touches down at MaXXX Black, so keep checking back for more news about Rubber55, Vivishine & MaXXX Black.

Congratulations William & Kate – We’ll Be Watching!

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Here at MaXXX Black we love a love story – especially a royal one!

Just like a billion other people worldwide we will be glued to multiple tv networks, youtube, and of course – The ABC – to take in the spectacle, drama and pomp that will be the wedding of our Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

If you’re in Sydney we highly recommend getting down to see one of the huge screens being hooked up across the city for us all to share in this very royal occassion. The Sydney screens will be sponsored by GetUP! Australia and Marriage Equality so the message of love making all things equal is definately the theme of the day.

Whether your hosting your own royal reception, watching the ABC with friends and family, or joining in the street parties and town square events we hope you enjoy the day and make the most of the wedding of the century!

Now if only they’d had a registry with MaXXX Black it would be the honeymoon of the century too!

Gallery: Maya Hansen Corsets

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

We featured Maya’s handywork not too long ago so when we came across her latest work we were beside ourselves.

Maya Carbajal Alex-Hansen is the daughter of an Argentinian father and a Danish mother, who graduated with honors at the CSDMM (school of fashion design) in Madrid, Spain and created the brand Maya Hansen in 2004. Initially, her work focused around gothic aesthetics.

Everything changed when Maya Hansen became a corsétière in 2006. The focus of all her collections is this extraordinary piece of clothing. She dedicates her time not only to the design of corsets but also to the investigation of corset technique based on patterns, materials and textiles from the beginning of 20th century. Using only the best quality textiles and materials, Maya Hansen makes her corsets a unique and in many cases unrepeatable piece, manufactured with great care and love for detail.

Based in Madrid, Maya Hansen is available in Spain, UK, USA, Japan, Switzerland, France, Netherlands and Lithuania – but as yet she is unavailable here in Australia. That doesn’t mean we can’t still drool and dream of wearing one of these amazing pieces.

Her latest collection was inspired by one of our favourite things – CAKE. Cupcakes, mini cakes, icing-swirled confections of cakey joy – we love them, but if we had to choose between the corset or the cake, there is no doubt it would be one of these…

Sex Coach: Sex Is Good, Sleep Is Better!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Whoa, isn’t that blasphemy, coming from a Sex Coach? Sleep is better than sex?!

No, I’m not about to ‘fess up and declare that I don’t practice what I preach, that I actually prefer curling up in bed with a good book and a box of Tim Tams. (Although sometimes I do.) My point is that for very many people, myself included, without enough sleep you don’t feel like sex.

Time after time I get exhausted people coming to me wondering what’s wrong with them, why they don’t have any desire for sex. The answer is pretty simple – you’re too tired. Exhausted, flat, overwhelmed, worn out, drained… None of these states are conducive to a raging libido.

Like anything in life, the better the state you’re in, the better you’ll perform. This applies whether we’re talking about work, sport or play (including sex).

We modern urban Westerners are a pretty overloaded bunch, way too hyped up and with far too much to do. If you’re going for it all day long, then chances are you’re not going to be up for much once you hit the sack. Sex will feel like just one more thing to ‘do’ and sleep will beckon, oh so invitingly.

We’re also chronically lacking in sleep. Plenty of studies show that we’re not getting enough sleep and that this is impacting on our quality of life, from overweight to accidents to poor performance, and in my area of speciality, low libido.

[Note: If you’re someone who has an unflagging libido, who’s up for it no matter what your state, then obviously this doesn’t apply to you, at least, not at the moment. But it might apply to your partner, so it’s important that you understand this.]

So prioritise sleep, that’s essential! But that doesn’t mean putting off sex until you’ve caught up on sleep, or until you feel 100% – that may never happen. You can use sex to help rejuvenate yourself. It depends on the type of sex you’re having, and what you do in the lead up to it. Make connection and chilling-out together part of your daily unwind. Even better, do it in the bedroom – hang out on your bed together, having a cup of tea and a chat, and you’re much more likely to find you’re transitioning into some gentle, gorgeous love-making. That will make you feel happier, more relaxed – and help you sleep better! A win all round.

This sets up a positive feedback loop: you’ll feel better, more connected, more loved and loving, you’ll sleep better so you’ll feel more energised and life will take on a rosy glow!

So don’t try and force desire, set yourself up so that you’re open to allowing desire to rise. Rest, relax, chill out together and let the desire flow…

Happy Easter – The Season of Eggs & Bunnies!

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

Shameless aren’t we? But we just can’t help looking out across Sydney and seeing endless bags of eggs, rabbits, bunnies and such without immediately thinking of the all the eggs and bunnies that do the naughty fun stuff too. And why not?

Easter is based on an ancient pagan festival to welcome the Northern spring – and we all know that spring is the season of love and frisky activity! So even though it’s getting cooler in our part of the world lets remember that the easter break invites us to celebrate, live and love – but if you want to just stuff yourself with a lindt chocolate bunny we completely understand. After all, it’s EASTER!

From Everyone here at MB, we wish you a frisky, fun and safe holiday break this season.

Jacqueline Hellyer: The 12 Benefits Of Sex

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Sex can be an amazing, natural and even spiritual experience.  In case you need convincing, here are twelve benefits of sex you may not know:

  1. When women make love they produce estrogen, which makes hair shine and skin smooth.
  2. Sex is an instant cure for mild depression. It releases endorphins into the bloodstream, producing a sense of euphoria and well-being.
  3. Sex is the safest tranquilizer in the world. It is 10 times more effective than valium.
  4. Sex burns up calories.
  5. Sex is one of the safest sports you can do. It stretches and tones up just about every muscle in the body.
  6. The more sex you have, the more you will be offered. The sexually active body gives off greater quantities of pheromones.
  7. Kissing encourages saliva and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay, preventing plaque build-up.
  8. Sex reduces dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes as the sweat produced cleanses the pores and makes your skin glow.
  9. Sex relieves headaches. A lovemaking session can release the tension that restricts blood vessels in the brain.
  10. Sex can unblock a stuffy nose. It’s a natural antihistamine. It can help combat asthma and hay fever.
  11. Orgasm can help ease period pain.
  12. Sex releases the cuddly hormone oxytocin which makes you feel all luvvy-duvvy with your partner.

Now I ask you, what else in the world has this many benefits?!
