ANME Founders Show Opens

BURBANK, Calif.—The ANME Founders Show opened Sunday at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank hotel, with several companies unveiling new products and entire new lines.

Mega manufacturer Doc Johnson debuted its new line that is a collaboration with star Sasha Grey. The black glass items are not commonly found in the industry, and these have a sleek, sophisticated look, said Rebecca Weinberg of Doc Johnson.

“We wanted to keep this line clean, sleek and a little dark,” she said.

The line has three plugs in various sizes, and a wand that can be used as a massager or for Kegel exercises, and another with a handle and nubs.

Also new is the Belladonna Pocket Pussy, which has an open end, and the Sasha Grey Cream Pie Pocket Pussy, which has a closed end. Both pieces are ribbed inside and hand painted.

Other existing lines are seeing new products added, including the popular Reflections and Aluminations lines. The Reflections line now has new pieces with a matte finish, which gives it a looks of silicone, but the feel and properties of glass. The new Alumination 2 pieces combine aluminum and silicone that make them smooth to the touch and interesting for temperature play.

Also introducing new lines was Pipedream Products. Among the new items is the Icicles line. The hand-blown glass massager comes in a variety of shapes, styles and colors, and the packaging only adds to the product, noted Kevin Johnson, marketing manager for Pipedream Products.

“The boxes have a flap that opens up, and the inside is cut out in the shape of the piece inside so customers can see the actual product,” he said.

Additionally, the line features vibrating pieces, Johnson said.

Pipedream Products also launched a lingerie line to its popular Fetish Fantasy Series. The line features packaged costumes, G-strings and X pasties, and C-wraps in regular and plus sizes.

Other companies on hand to exhibit and show off new products included Digital Playground, which released two new styles of its Hidden Treasure vibrator from its Pirates toy line; Fun Factory USA, which debuted Cobra, a sex toy designed for men that is the newest item in the Clink ’n’Charge line of products; and The Screaming O, which introduced the Propell-O, which resembles two of its popular Oh Yeah! cock rings fused together.

The ANME Founders show continues through Tuesday.
