A pretty girl, a photographer and a glass candy cane...

We've been a little busy in the Boudoir Essentials Lounge - Thanksgiving is right around the corner and behind it, the official start to the holiday season. New items are still going online weekly, new kits and gift ideas will be posted soon and we still need to find some chestnuts to roast on an open fire.

Thankfully we did have time to stage a fabulous photo shoot with our new cover girl, Kim. She was gracious enough to pose with the Candy Cane by Don Wands. The Candy Cane is now for sale in the boutique. Made of the same glass as Pyrex, it will hold heat or cold and is non-porous. A perfect gift, it comes in a cute red pouch ready for giving!

Fusion Photography out of Panama City Beach did the photography, make-up and hair.

Gift Ideas

The holiday season is fast approaching. To keep it from completely sneaking up on you, we've compiled a mini list of gift ideas to give your special someone.

Nookii Bare: the cutest idea to bare it all. This little guy comes equipped with a messenger style pouch and 7 cheeky cards. When you've done all the suggestions, think of all the other things you can stash in his little pouch!

Betty Beauty: Hair color for the hair down there. Get festive for the holidays by changing the color of the carpets! A BE special - we are throwing in 2 random Charmcils with each Betty Beauty purchase.

Chocolate Tattoo set or Chocolate Passion Powder: These new products by Chocoholics give new meaning to "Dessert is served!" Leave edible messages in all the right places with the tattoo set or dust a trail with the passion powder. The best part? You'll burn off any calories you might be consuming as you play!

Candles: Allume Moi, Bwarm or Sex Kitten massage candles. We have three brands to choose from and all have their specialties. Allume Moi by Fun Factory is all natural and comes packaged in a glass jar for burning. The oils used have a very low burn point and are luxurious on the skin. Bwarm by Bswish has a specially designed container made for pouring. The massage oil is very moisturizing and absorbs slowly into the skin. Sex Kitten candles come packaged in travel tins and are flavored as well as scented, making massage a tasty experience.

All items listed above are available at Boudoir Essentials for $25 or under. Use coupon code THANKFUL before November 23rd, 2008 to get additional discounts!

It's chilly outside, how to stay warm inside...

The fall/winter season is upon us, bringing colorful leaves, crisp air and opportunities to warm things up in new and exciting ways. Try out a massage candle! The warm light from the candle sets the mood and the liquified wax makes a wonderful massage oil. Boudoir Essentials offers two brands to choose from with several scents available with each.

bwarm by bswish massage candles are available in three luxurious scents: rose patchouli, figwood or amber. The amazing thing about these candles is the container. Made of a pliable silicone type material, the casing is designed with one long side for pouring. This candle has a very low burn temperature and is very silky smooth when used for massage. The oils absorb slowly into the skin for maximum massage time.

Sex Kitten massage candles are packaged in cute little tins with lids for easy transport for your next weekend getaway. They come in four edible scents: "Meowgasm|Sex on the Beach," "Purrvert|Strawberry," "Divalicious|Chocolate," or "Sexpot|Cherry". Each candle is scented and has a wonderful flavor infused in it, making massage as tasty as it feels!

The next thing to add to your sensual massage experience is the Hot Heart Massager. With a click of the little metal disk inside, it heats up to soothe tired muscles and pairs well with any of our candles or massage oil. Provide your own at home stone massage! Don't forget the best part - its reuseable! Simple boil the massager for 7-10 minutes to reset it and use it again (and again).

Pair a candle with the massager and you've got a wonderful gift idea for under $30.

Lelo - Lust Objectified

What's so great about Lelo?
When it comes to making a truly elegant sensual toy that is designed from a sexual health perspective, Swedish designer Lelo to leads the way. The price of Lelo’s products sometimes cause sticker shock, but this truly is a connoisseur’s line. From those who’ve chosen to go with Lelo we’ve read nothing but positive reviews.

The Lineup - Lelo's lineup consists of: Clitoral stimulators including the shiny & decorative Nea, the satin finish Lily, & the opulent Yva along with the new USB charged Mia, perfect for the girl on the go. Insertable small vibes Liv & g-spot shaped Gigi. Larger vibes Elise & Iris. Kegel execisers Luna Balls. The un-powered Ella shaped for g-spot contact.

Design – While most of us make an effort to hide our toys, you might be surprised how much you’ll *want* to show these off. The sleek lines and appropriate curves are, clearly, well thought out. The controls on all of Lelo’s products are intuitive and easy to access with one hand. The shape and materials cut no corners either, with a mixture of soft-touch and glossy plastic. The construction feels solid and does not rattle like many lower quality vibrating products. Plus all Lelo products are phthalate free.

Rechargeable - All of Lelo’s battery powered products are rechargeable. Plus a short charge (about 2 hours) lasts for 4-6hours! (depending on product) Our green side also likes the idea of less batteries being thrown away.

Dual motors – The two larger vibrators, Elise and Iris wield *two* motors to provide sensations unlike any single motor product. The dual motors are effectively utilized, especially in the surging and pulsing modes as they alternate from one motor to the other.

Locking controls – If you’ve ever packed an electronic device with a power switch in your suitcase you’ve likely encountered “accidental activation.” Lelo prevents this by allowing you to easily lock the buttons for travel or whatever reason you might wish it to be temporarily disabled. This function is explained clearly in the instructions.

Quiet – Lelo makes some of the quietest vibrators on the market. Though they can be heard in a quiet room, they’re about the same volume of a cell phone on vibrate. You’re not likely to wake the neighbors, or anyone in the next room, with this one. The larger products are obviously louder than the smaller ones, but all of them are on the quiet side for their class.

- Each item comes double boxed, a glossy showcase on the outside, and a black, high-density canvas texture box appropriate for storing your elegant item. Open the inner box and you'll find custom molded smoke colored tray with a clear dust cover over the device. Under the tray you'll find the AC adapter for recharging, a satin storage bag with a ribbon drawstring and the instructions/warranty information.

– Lelo backs their products with a 1 year warranty. This is comforting to know when purchasing an item at this price level. In our dealings with Lelo’s team we’ve always been impressed by their professionalism and courtesy, another comforting factor should you ever need to make use of the warranty.

Lelo. Lust objectified. Who wouldn't love them?

Sex Toy Storage

You've purchased the item that gives you all the excitement you can handle and you dare not throw it into the some common drawer to be lost. What do to?

There are several sex toy storage options available at Boudoir Essentials - find the one right for you.


Looking for a great way to keep your private objects private? Put a ToiBocks in your boudoir! This cherry wood, velvet lined container, disguised as a jewelry box holds your more mentionable valuables in the top tray and hides your more personal valuables in the bottom. A magnetic lock secures the tray from prying eyes. The “key” is cleverly disguised as the maker’s brand and stored under the lid so you won’t lose it. Perfect for anyone who shares their home but doesn’t wish to share their toys.


An equally clever cousin to the Toibocks, the ToiTissue is a multi-function item. Kleenex is stored up top and a hidden compartment slides out to reveal a velvet lined tray for storing your favorite vibe. The ToiTissue does not lock, but it looks so harmless that unless you know what you are looking for, you are not likely to find the tray.

Devine Toy Box

This locking, satin lined box is a delight to the eyes. There are two styles avilable at Boudoir Essentials, pink hearts or urban black. These cases are great for bedside storage that dresses up your decor.

Sex Kitten Storage Pillow

This darling pillow is soft furry black on the outside and when you open it up, it is dramatically light pink satin on the inside. We think the opening is very suggestively sexy, and when zipped up it's very discretely hush-hush. The 12"x12" stash will securely - and decoratively - hold several of your favorite toys, books, condoms, lubes, and extra batteries all in one snuggly spot.

Sugar Sak

New to Boudoir Essentials is the Sugar Sak! Available in Black, Pink and Red and in sizes Large (Black & Red) and X-Large (Hot Pink), these saks have a satin exterior and lint free lined interior. The interior is also coated with Bioshield 75 - an exclusive, invisible EPA approved coating that inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi, mold, mildrew, yeast and viruses in the bag. The Bioshield 75 protects up to 50 washes! (Yes, it is WASHABLE!)

With all of these wonderful choices, how can you settle for anything less?

A little french for your Boudoir....

In the past week we have added a few new items to the boutique. There is the SaSi, the WeVibe and a couple of new flavors (chocolate & cherry) under Sex Kitten Massage Candles.

A recently we got a box in that literally had me grinning at the sight of it. Fresh from France, Maison Close. This luxury line of lingerie and accessories is stunning. It really looks as good in person as the photos suggest.

Le Petit Lecon - to help tame those unruly passions. This wooden ruler is in metric and the silky tassel at the end reminds you that its not just for measuring.
Les Poignets D'Amour - cuffs made of lace and satin to confine jealous desire. These lacy cuffs are super comfortable and go straight from a night out on the town to a night in the bedroom.
Le Colin Maillard - to dim the sensation of sight is to heighten that of caress. With lace covering the eyes and long strips of satin to tie with, this gorgeous blindfold does not so much blind as heighten the sensation of touch and dress up the wearer.
Les-Suivez-Moi Jeune Homme - Come, chase me and tie me up. Satin ties that beckon to be used and pair well with Le Colin Maillard.
Le Petit Secret - its not naked enough. If you've ever felt overdressed, Le Petit Secret is for you. Made simply of three bands, all the important areas of consideration are accentuated for your lover.
And from the Louisa line, Serra Taille Waist Cincher and thong. Both of these beautiful pieces will heat up the upcoming cold nights. Made of satin , both the waist cincher and thong exhibit the utmost in quality and design. The Louisa thong has a naughty zipper down the middle to make the most chaste garments decidely ...unchaste.

Boudoir Essentials is proud to announce that we are the only US based website to offer Maison Close! This luxury line comes straight from France and each piece is wrapped in tissue paper and boxed, ready for gift giving.

Incognito, anyone?

I've heard buzzing about incognito items lately. And no wonder! They are the best of both worlds - clever undercover vibrators parading about as something else, lipstick perhaps? If this sounds like something on your "must have" list, Boudoir Essentials has you covered!

First on the list is the lipstick vibe. This is the ultimate in travel incognito! It looks just like the perfect shade of magenta complete with cap, but packs a lovely vibrating punch in 2 speeds.

Next up in the category of camouflaged toys is I Rub My Duckie. Made by Big Teaze toys, this duckie is perfect for relaxing in the tub. I Rub My Duckie comes in a few different colors and styles to match any decor. Purple, anyone?

Last, but certainly NEVER least, the vibrating shower scrunchie! Featured in iVillage as a favorite, this scrunchie makes shower time a lot more interesting solo or with a partner.

Purchase any of the above items in the Boudoir Essentials Boutique and receive 10% off by entering coupon code SAVVY (Good till Oct. 15th) at checkout!

Sasi - A New Era in Toys


Every once in a while something truly innovative emerges in the world of sensual toys. Something that really adds to the market and doesn’t just make minor improvements in shape or function, but is completely different. This is the case with French toy designer JeJoue’s latest product – SaSi. It’s not just another vibe. In fact it’s rather difficult to describe SaSi without showing it to someone.

The item does have a vibration function (it would have been negligent not to include the basics.) But it’s more like a little robotic finger. It’s truly a clitoral stimulator as it essentially “massages” that area with a very natural up-down motion with a little bit of arching and circling. This is the closest we’ve seen to automated cunnilingus. It may even be a useful tool for “demonstrating” to the unlearned what kind of motion is effective, and where. The massaging nub moves underneath an elastic silicone cover stretched over the bottom of the device.

As for the controls, we strongly recommend reading the brief manual included as the controls are fairly intuitive, but they’re also context sensitive and not immediately obvious. On the top of SaSi you’ll find 5 buttons: a middle “start” button and 4 arrows pointing each direction. There are two lights that illuminate to tell you whether SaSi is operating in “Favorites” or “Customize” mode. When you use SaSi in the “Customize” mode it learns what motions you spend the most time on and adds the 5 most common to your “Favorites” for quick access at your whim. The speed of the movement and intensity of vibration are controllable in either mode.

This toy is the most “intelligent” we’ve seen so far as it actually makes an effort to “learn” about its user. If only it would take out the trash and do the dishes! SaSi is not waterproof, so do not take it in the shower or tub. We’re excited to welcome SaSi as one of our finest luxury items. Boudoir Essentials carries SaSi in three colors - Pink, Purple and Black so that you can choose the color best suited for you.

SaSi, ToiBocks and WeVibe, oh my!

Greetings from the Boudoir Essentials Lounge and top secret headquarters in stormy Florida! (Thanks to Fay!)

The SaSi debuted last week on the website. This little number is just as neat in person as it appears online! When you do purchase it, immediately plug it in and while it is charging, take the time to read the manual and it will give you many happy hours of joy and satisfaction.

The We Vibe is also a hot new number that joined the website shortly after the re-launch. This little number is wearable and hits just the right places! With two vibrating heads to take care of clitoral and G-spot stimulation, you may be wondering why you'd want anything else. Wear it during intercourse and he will benefit as well!

A brand spanking new product that will be joining our All Star lineup in about a week is the ToiBocks. Made of cherry wood and lovingly designed, this product serves a dual purpose - to store your jewelry or other precious items and to store your toys! With a latch that only releases when used with its accompanying magnetic lock, the only one who will find your hidden stuff is you! We will also have a ToiBocks kleenex box if you don't want a jewelry box. It also has the hidden latch released by super strong magnets. I can't wait to show these little numbers at my home parties!

Speaking of connecting with my fabulous customers.....I am in need of product testers/reviewers. Basically, I am looking for honest reviews on any and all of our products. Send an email to for more info.

BE ready for fall!


We are back online and ready to swing into the dog days of summer. Watch for several new products that are set to debut in the next couple of weeks including a revolutionary new massager called SaSi, Fun Factory's new line of massage candles called Allume Moi, and great new discrete storage from Toi Bocks.

If you haven't already seen it, check out our newest addition on the site called the We-Vibe. It's a dual motor wearable that provides stimulation both inside and out and is unobtrusive enough that it can be used during intercourse!

We are also planning to expand the lingerie line. Lucy B will be back soon, along with a few new surprises. ;)

The REAL Proprietress

Hello Lovelies,

I always said that I preferred to be like "Oz" behind his boudoir curtain. Okay, presumably Oz didn't have a boudoir. Alors! Remember the scene where Dorothy gets her glam makeover after having been on the yellow brick road? Hmmm...all that primping and buffing and buzzing...sorta boudoir-esque, non?

But I digress. With the news of BE going offline for a time, until a fabulous new owner can be found, many of you have said, "What do you look like? Who are you? Who do YOU want to BE?" And we're most flattered. Of course we met some of you at Erotica LA last year and we've been thrilled to have you aboard for the ride. And for those of you who live far and wide...without further adieu...I give you your very own Proprietress and her trusty sidekick Bowie. (btw, you can vote for Bowie in Bissell's MVP contest right now.


P.S. This is a recent photo by an Italian journalist who was writing about BE for an Italian women's holiday. Grazie Iliaria and Stefania!

Rx for His "Man Cold"

Hello Lovelies,

I just watched the hilarious "Man Cold" video on YouTube again. Oh the perils of snifflling sweeties gazing semi-lucidly at their imaginary pearly gates.

It got us to thinking, though, that a better remedy than emergency paramedic treatment - for your sweetie's man cold - might simply be a visit from Nurse Betty. Betty's sole purpose in life is to minister to her man's - umm - cold. Reports from boudoir devotees confirm the efficacy of this technique eliminating the need for everything from grandma's secret chicken soup recipe to Nyquil and beyond.

Flu Season Special: 5 Piece Deluxe Nursie - WAS $60 NOW $45

You'll both thank us in the morning! ;)


P.S. REMINDER! Visit our boudoir now for savings up to 60%. Quantities of each item are limited and nearing sell out. Don't get left out in the cold. Stock up on sexy, fun, boudoir essentials before they're all gone!

Valentine' Day Shopping Tips for Guys

Hello Lovelies -

Cupid popped by earlier today and was very concerned that some of the gents out there hadn't gotten her how-to memo on sexy Valentine's Day gift giving. She was inconsolable - vaguely reminiscent of some Valentine's Day debacles we'd rather not recall at the moment - and promised we would do our best to help point her arrows in the right direction. We wiped her little tears, fed her some sweets (we always have some dark chocolate on hand), and prepared this missive for you pronto!

1. Don't wait until the last minute.

2. This is the perfect holiday to exercise your creative side.

3. Flowers wilt, chocolate melts, a night of sexy romantic passion lasts forever!

BE wants to make it even easier for you to get all the brownie points you deserve this Valentine's Day. Start fanning the flames early by choosing an item you think she may like, then share it with her via our Tell-A-Friend feature. Ohhhh we feel the heat already!

From mild to wild, romantic to luxurious, or sweetly sensual we have something for everyone! Step inside our boutique and let the games begin!

Vote in our Weekly Poll

Hello Lovelies,

We're getting the vote out. No, not the political vote. You get enough of that without us having to chime in. We just want you to vote in our NEW weekly poll listed on BE's blog, Lounging at Boudoir Essentials.

Check out the latest and greatest at or by clicking on the blog + tips link in our main menu located at the top of each page. And while we're on the subject of voting, did you know that you can weigh in on any of the products we offer in our boudoir? Just log on and vote for your favorite items with 1-5 stars and/or your comments.

Here's to an open and democratic boudoir! And as they liked to say in my hometown of Chicago, "Vote early and often!"


Lucy B Lingerie SALE

Hello Lovelies -

Have you resolved to BE Bold this year? How about alluring? Maybe you resolved to channel your inner pin-up girl! Oooo we like that one!

Here's a little something to get you started. In addition to all the delicious boudoir essentials we've marked down to help start your new year on the right indulgent foot - we're offering all you sexy vixens a one-time opportunity to purchase the divine Lucy B lingerie line at an unbelievable 30% off! No, you're not dreaming. It's true. If you're new to Lucy B - the styles are the perfect combination of drama + fantasy.

Take a look at the adorably frisky pink ruffled "gartertini" (it's a full panty with attached garters!) and matching bralette? We know some boudoir belles who swear the temperature in their own boudoirs went up several notches courtesy of the velvet tigress print shorty and bralette. (Shhh, some even wearing them under their work clothes to feel sexy while working on those Excel spreadsheets).

Imagine wearing these styles while showing off your new favorite striptease moves, or revealing them as you "accidentally" lose at strip poker. We're giggling just thinking about that last option!

Stock up early for Valentine's Day - or send a special hint to your sweetie from our BE Wish List feature.

Happy Sexy New Year!
