LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 2, 2012) - October has been declared National Kink Month by Stockroom.com -- a leading designer and retailer of fetish sex toys and gear based in Los Angeles. The company celebrates with weekly sales in their online adult toy store, coupled with free lessons on their fetish blog teaching readers how to use the bondage restraints; floggers; chastity devices; and other kinky toys featured each week.
Why is October Kinky?
October seemed a logical choice for Kink Month because Halloween is such a popular adult holiday. But while the leather hoods, masquerade masks, whips, and other accessories on sale make excellent Halloween costumes, it's really the holiday's spirit of sexual exploration and expression that make it seem the right season to shed light on what BDSM and fetish play is all about. After all, as Stockroom founder Joel Tucker notes, "Kinky sex is based on experimentation, adventure, and exploration of roles and dynamics that are often different from the day-to-day lives we lead. Halloween, for adults, is an occasion for playing with sexy costumes, assumed identities, and the enjoyment or humor in the darker side of life. (Think of 'The Addams Family.') Kink, Halloween, and the month of October are a natural fit."
Learn Safe, Fun, Kinky Sex Tips From an Expert
Kink Month is more truly a public education and outreach effort than a sale, and The Stockroom envisions that the bondage lessons and fetish sex tips blogged this October will continue to turn the public on to safe, easy ways to add BDSM role play to their regular sex life in years to come.
Stockroom's staff takes their role as a resource for the sexually adventurous very seriously, so the current mainstream interest in fetish sex made this upcoming series of BDSM lessons seem especially timely. Tucker explains, "With the recent popularity of the Fifty Shades of Grey books, a lot of people are curious about BDSM and asking questions, but there aren't a lot of qualified answers. Kinky sex and roleplay often use tools with a learning curve, and this specialized knowledge is beyond the scope of most beauty and health magazine columnists."
The Stockroom, on the other hand, has a background in sex education: though they're best known for their sex toys, the company also owns Daedalus Publishing, which specializes in erotic instructional books by top sex educators. Beyond this, The Stockroom is one of the world's leading fetish experts: established nearly 25 years ago as the internet's first sex toy store of any kind, they've spent decades designing, making, and selling bondage gear & BDSM toys to people of all experience levels.
Sharing that knowledge through their Kink Month blog posts is part of the company's continuing commitment to pioneer better sex: readers will be able to learn how to tie someone up, for example, while they take advantage of Stockroom.com's sale on bondage restraints and rope, or they can learn how to use a chastity belt or toy for teasing their partner. Topics from the very basic -- like how to use a butt plug comfortably -- to more advanced subjects like nipple torture or medical roleplay will be covered, making the Kink Month lessons a great intro for beginners, but still fun for experienced players extending their repertoire.
Starting Oct. 1, Kink Month BDSM lessons will be posted each week on blog.stockroom.com, and featured sale items can be found on www.stockroom.com. Be sure to sign up for Stockroom's newsletter to learn more kinky sex tips and be in on the latest sales!
