Over the weekend, we attended our first Brooklyn Sex Expo! We traveled from LA to New York with our sister company, Bedroom Products, to join a lineup of sex toy manufacturers and sexual wellness educators

On Friday, we set up shop at the Brooklyn Expo Center, showcasing our full menu of candy-themed, couples-friendly sex toys, as well as our traveling photo booth.
We brought our new product line, showcasing the Fun Size collection: Candy Stick, Lala Pop, Suga Stick and Swirls vibrators, as well as the vibrating Bling Pop and Taffy Puller stroker!
By Saturday morning, we were ready to roll after a few finishing touches.
Day 1 opened to an eager crowd of attendees wrapped around the building waiting to get inside! The weekend's lineup included live bondage demos, giveaways, contests, vendors showcasing their best and latest products, and some fantastic panels covering topics ranging from oral sex techniques, flogging basics, to sex and cannabis. Shortly after the doors opened, our booth was buzzing with folks enthusiastic to learn more about how sex toys play into fun in the bedroom, and a positive quality of life. This is our favorite part of events like this -- getting people excited to explore, whether alone or with a partner...and that sex. Is. Not. Shameful!
9 out of 10 attendees who visited our booth asked, "are these toys actual candy???" - which we always love to hear! (The answer is no, but they give you orgasms, and that's even sweeter.)
A lot of people were curious to know about the different ways to use our vibrators -- and we always encourage people to get creative with them! Bullet vibes aren't just for the clit, try them anywhere externally! Our Taffy Puller stroker and Bling Pop cock ring were a huge hit, and customers who purchased our toys (and used them!) on Saturday came back the next day to tell us how much they enjoyed it. Great success!
Here's a peek into the Sex Expo!
We provided 1,000 complimentary packs of Poppin' Rock Candy (our first fully-edible product!) for VIP attendees, and also hosted 2 raffles for the Sugar and Spice Love Life gift box, which included sex toys and boozy pudding shots from Spoonable Spirits! Over 200 people entered to win, and Sex Expo hostess April Lampert awarded two lucky winners with the goods!
Being a part of this event reminds us how important - and needed - conversations about sexual health are in every community. We feel lucky to have the opportunity to contribute to the cause, and to meet the good people who share the opinion that sex, just like candy, is something to be shared and savored!
Until Next Year, New York!
