BURBANK, Calif.—The ANME Founders Show closed its three-day summer 2019 run Wednesday afternoon at the Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel. Though the crowds had thinned a bit by the final day, exhibitors were still busy showing their newest wares and upcoming products to existing and potential customers.

Satisfyer—an established brand but a newcomer to the ANME show floor—dazzled the crowds with new brands, including Satisfyer Layons and Satisfyer Luxury.

Satisfyer Luxury is a three-product brand—the pieces are Haute Couture, Pret-a-Porter and High Fashion—that boasts elegant and sleek designs with high-end details, such as leather and brushed metal. In addition to the Air Pulse Technology, the waterproof pieces also feature vibration at the head.

The Satisfyer Layons range debuted with four products—Purple Pleasure, White Temptation, Dark Desire and Sweet Sensation—with distinct designs and details, such as swirled ridges and softly round tips. Other new debuts in the Satisfyer booth included the Partner Multifun 3, Satisfyer Rings pleasure rings, the One Night Stand and the SatifyerMen Wand.


New animated Tailz models at the XR Brands booth

In the XR Brands booth, visitors’ tongues were wagging over the new wagging Tailz items. Operations Manager Gerardo Ramos explained the popular line has received some new additions, including versions that are motorized and wave back and forth, and kits that include fully bendable and posable Tailz anal plugs.

Booty Sparks anal plugs also got new additions, including a light-up version and the Lucky Gem and Violet Flower, each of which have four heart-shaped gems in a circle to resemble a clover or a flower.

Under the Inmi brand, XR debuted a new Shegasm item, the Shegasm Tickle.

“Like previous Shegasm items it delivers strong suction, but this one also has a little bead in the head that tickles the clitoris,” Ramos said.

Other ranges with new additions at the show include the Thump It line of anal plugs and the StrapU range of strapless strap-ons—including an innovative model with an inflatable bulb that helps the wearer keep the strap-on in place.


Glow-in-the-dark strokers are among the new additions to NS Novelties' Firefly collection.

In the NS Novelties booth, slat wall displays featured a number of new products in the bright colors the manufacturer is known for, particularly in its Colours and Firefly collections.

New super soft strokers were added to the Firefly range, which is known for glow-in-the-dark products. The palm-sized strokers feature various openings—oral, vaginal and anal—and different textures inside. Also new to the range are Contour Plugs and the Glow Stick, a single-shaft stimulator.

The fun Mojis range of anal plugs also got additions, this time featuring more sexually themed emojis, including the eggplant and the peach.


The Kama Sutra booth at ANME

Several manufacturers are celebrating major milestones this year, and Kama Sutra is no exception, celebrating its 50th year in business. The company started with a single products—Oil of Love—which is continues to sell today.

“It’s still the same formula it was on Day 1,” explained Marla Lee, president of Kama Sutra.

One of the original bottles from 50 years ago was on display in the booth, with new bottles just a shelf underneath. Still packaged in glass bottles with labels featuring a cartouche, Oil of Love is now available in a number of varieties and sizes.

The booth was also stocked with new items introduced in the past yer by the company, including Naughty Notes. Each greeting crd features a fun, adult saying—such as “You own my heart … and my ass!” or Lick me! Please!”—and includes three packets of Kama Sutra Products—Oil of Love, Massage Oil, etc.—and four position cards, suggesting positions couples can try to reenact.

“The Naughty Notes are a great way for customers to sample several Kama Sutra products at once,” Lee said.

The company has also introduced smaller sizes of many of its products in the past year to better meet customers’ needs.

“Relationships have changed in the past 50 years,” Lee said. “No matter the number of relationships or the type of relationships, smaller sizes of the popular products allows for more experimentation and return customers.”

Impulse Novelties, which has long been a favorite of buyers nationwide for unique stimulators at affordable prices, updated some it more popular pieces in time to showcase them at ANME.

“The Amie Encore features several pieces we offered previously in a battery-operated format,” said Shon McLean, sales rep for Impulse Novelties. “Now, we have them all available as rechargeable vibrators, including the Diana Dual G Vibe, which has dual motors and is a super quiet stimulator that targets the G-spot and clitoris simultaneously.”

The Amie Encore line is expected to be available starting next month, she said.

The company also debuted the BFF collection, which features such pieces as the Extreme Pleasure Triple Stimulator, the Diva Super Wand, the Dreamgirl Set and the Thruster.

ANME is expected to return in January. For more, visit
