LAS VEGAS - One of the most popular shows on Al Gore's Current TV network is InfoMania, an amusing and insightful weekly wrap-up of issues and people in the news.
But when Infomania correspondent Ben Hoffman, devoted his Jan. 15 "Tech Report" segment to the Consumer Electronics Show, but never got around to mentioning the other big reason to come to Vegas that weekend: The 2009 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE).
Hoffman has now remedied that oversight with a four-minute segment focusing on the tech toys on display at AEE - and he featured some of the best.
For instance, there's the OhMiBod mp3 Vibrator that plugs into your iPod or other player and automatically vibrates to the rhythm and intensity of the music; AEBN's RealTouch "teledildonic" interactive penis pump, which plugs into your computer's USB port and strokes your meat in time to the beat on specially prepared XXX DVDs; Sexerciseme's Sexerciseball, which allows you to attach a six-speed remote controlled vibrator and bounce your way to orgasm; Stockroom.com's P.E.S. Samurai , an electro-stimulation unit that tickles women from the inside out; a vibrating cock ring and similar toys from Screaming O; Fantasy Kit liquid latex body paint, modeled by two young female "superheroes"; and more.
And of course, this being AEE, there were the inevitable (if fleeting) shots of cute porn babes, including Mary Carey and Lisa Ann (in her "Serra Paylin" outfit from Who's Nailin' Paylin? ).
"We had a great time there, and everyone was really great to us," Hoffman told AVN.
