Welcome

Welcome to my world! It's always Sunny here. 

Lovehoney Sex Expert Interview: Sunny Rodgers 

I had the pleasure of participating in a Lovehoney interview! Have you heard of Lovehoney? They call themselves "The Sexual Happiness People" and I couldn't agree more. Their site offers not just pleasure products, but ideas! Want to know how to have better sex? Or, sex toys that have been seen on TV or promoted by Huffington Post? Well, Lovehoney states they have everything you need for a fun and fulfilling sex life, including sex toys, sexy lingerie, sexy gifts and essentials like condoms and lubricants. 

Looks like Lovehoney is the perfect place to find everything you need for Valentine's Day and beyond!

 

LovehoneyLovehoney also has a ton of Sex Toy and Lingerie Buyer's Guides that can come in handy in all types of situations. Definitely check them out if you're ever curious! They also have a delightful, entertaining, and educational Sex Toys Blog USA that is truly worth a read. 

So, I was particularly honored and humbled when I was asked to do an interview with them. Wow! 

 

Would you like to know what I think a successful sex life is? Why do I want to save the world one orgasm at a time? Or, what my favorite bedroom advice is for couples?

You can read all those answers and more here

I candidly shared advice, ideas, and ways pleasure products improve lives. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy 2019! Let's start off the year with new Resolutions! 

Hello Friends!

I'll be honest - I usually hate January because I miss the Christmas cheer. Everyone is so nice and on their best behavior in December. And then in January, it's like everyone needs to catch up on being a Scrooge. 

 

January can bring bad attitudes!

That said, I do like the January winter weather because I can wear my sweaters that don't get much love or use in Southern California. And, because I can start off the year with a fresh list of resolutions!

My resolutions aren't just for improvement (although many of them are...) but also encompass Bucket List items and places to check off my Travel List. 

 

New Years Resolutions, upon resolutions, upon resolutions....

 

Does anyone else make separate lists of resolutions in different categories? 

I feel like if one list reads, "Join Pilates", another list should read, "Swim with Dolphins". Just saying.

I should tell you, I did check "Swim with Dolphins" off my list - and it wasn't what I expected. While the hubs LOVED the adventure, I was terrified much of the time. In my head, I imagined the "Disney" dolphin experience of floating around the pool with my new finned friend. 

 

In reality, the dolphins were rescued in a small town on the Baja coast and we went into their ocean tanks to swim with them. Yes, those really were eels rubbing against my legs. And the dolphins were larger, powerful and more ominous than in my imagination! I was scared. But, I was also THRILLED that I was swimming with them! I could tell they were intelligent and loving. My mermaid aspirations were piqued. 

 

Make me a Mermaid!

This year, I want to do yoga with baby goats, travel to an obscure island in the Bahamas, publish at least two books, launch my own sex education school, work towards my Ph. D., and go wine tasting via horseback. Lofty goals to be sure, especially since those baby goats are really bouncy! But, at least it gives me a North Star direction in my life, which keeps me motivated and constantly pushing myself. 

 

Bouncy Baby Goats

 

Last year I accomplished a lot on my lists - try Absinthe (no, I didn't hallucinate), performed a marriage ceremony, and hosted an award show, to name a few. Taking my hubs to Tahoe and Yosemite were also checked off my list last year. 

 

What wasn't checked off my 2018 list? Run a marathon through a vineyard, travel to Amsterdam, and re-learn how to play the guitar. Should I add those back onto my 2019 list?

 

Should unfulfilled goals be put back on your New Year's Resolution list?

 

I've already joined a pilates class and have five BETA students for my school, and it's not yet February. So I feel I've gotten off to a good start. But, who knows if that January determination will peter out by May. Life is always full of surprises! 

 

Sunny Surprises!

 

So, please share! What are some of your resolutions for 2019?

Just what happens at the Bi-Annual Toy Convention? 

Thousands of people, hundreds of new pleasure products, and yes, it feels like family. Since I've been a part of the pleasure product industry since 2000, I've had the pleasure of being part of a true industry family. That's just one reason it's so awesome to attend this bi-annual event - ANME, or the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo.

ANME July 2018

What pleasure product innovations did I see? Dolls. Dolls that looked like life-size Barbies. And, technology. Specifically, speech-recognition technology in male pleasure products that respond when spoken to, or to specific stimulation. I did not see any technology that melded the two together, but anyone's who's seen Cherry 2000 knows that "android wives" aren't too far in the future.

I also saw incredibly upscale innovations that boasted Tiffany blue and gemstone crystals. There was even a wall of anal plug gemstones luring buyers in to see what consumers will be demanding next. 

 

Bling Butts

The highlight for me was once again hosting the Annual StorErotica Award Show. This is my time to shine! I'm able to humbly honor fellow industry honorees with kudos for nominations and for a select few, wonderful awards. Yes, this year we did also give award winners tequila shots. Below, I accepted an award for an absentee guest and was able to thank my own liver as I partook in the award shot.

I have to say, for me, it's a complete honor to be the host for such an esteemed event. 2018 was my second year hosting the award show and I've already been asked to host for the 2019 awards. I love being able to officially hand my colleagues trophies that praise their accolades and contributions.

I'm infinitely blessed to be a part of such a great industry and to be able to see cutting-edge pleasure product developments before they even hit the marketplace. This, combined with my coaching and sex toy concierge efforts, allow me to live a full and complete life.

Meet Minister Sunny Rodgers 

Sometimes you get to a point in your life where it seems like every other couple you meet are in the midst of a divorce, separation, uncoupling or whatever they're calling it. I'm an empathetic person - I wanna help! It's just part of who I am. So, maybe I'm crazy, but this wave of broken partnerships has inspired me - to become a Minister!

I'm ready to mend broken hearts and bring love & marriage into peoples' lives! I've learned some interesting things along the way. The only state in the U.S. which requires a blood test prior to marriage is Montana. And it's illegal to marry the same man more than four times in Kentucky (I really want to know how this became a law...). First cousins are allowed to marry in Utah - but only if they're both over the age of 65. And - tourists beware! - it's illegal in New Orleans for a psychic or palm reader to officiate a marriage. 

So if you're interested in allowing me be your minister, to help you have and hold your betrothed, to start you on your path of wedded bliss - reach out and let me know! It would be my pleasure to marry you. I mean, marry you. Oh, you know what I mean. :-) 

Practice your, "I do"'s and I can help you with the rest. Because your wedding should be special, fun and the best day of your life! Let's make your wedding the BEST wedding ever!

 

Award Season = Bare Buns & Bathroom Boobs 

OK, I know I said sex toy testing may be my favorite part of my job - butt (pun intended) January's award season ranks pretty high up on my list as well. I get to go to award shows that are jam-packed with beautiful people, see friends that I don't see that often, and, if I'm lucky, get to hold an award. 

Did I also mention the bare buns?

It's funny because when I go to the restroom during award shows, it's often like walking into a sexy sorority. The gorgeous, and extremely tall, actress next to me smiled at me and said, "Look at my new baby boobs. I just got them in November. So they are babies." 

I wasn't sure if I was more delighted by her exotic European accent or her so-called baby boobs. 

"Well," I smiled back. "Your baby boobs are beautiful. And, they are big for being babies."

"They are still hard," she pouted. 

"Um, uh," I wasn't sure what response she was looking for. "How hard are they?" 

"Feel. Just feel," she thrust her chest in my direction as I finished toweling off my freshly washed hands. 

"Um, okkkkk..." 

And then I grabbed her boobs. She was right. They were kind of hard.

"They're nice," I lied. 

"Thank you," she purred.

"You should feel mine," Nope. That wasn't me talking. This was another tall, gorgeous woman with hot pink hair no less.

 

Ten minutes later when I exited the restroom... slightly flustered and smiling the biggest, dumbest smile, my friends looked concerned.

"You took forever. Are you all right?"

"Oh yasss. I was feeling boobs. Lots of boobs," I sighed.

"Uh, it's not like that in the guy's restroom."

"I bet it's not," me. Still smiling. "Shall we find our seats?"

And so we made our way to Table 41 to enjoy the XBIZ Awards Show. There were winners, nominees, sexy acts, crying, smiling, celebrating, and a large bottle of Grey Goose vodka as the centerpiece of our table. Nice ;-)

Clap, clap, yell, shout, cheers! Repeat. For at least an hour. Maybe more. My mind kept drifting back to the restroom. Did I have to pee again? Should I just go pee again? 

And then, I stood up... and they called our names! 

"How did you know we were going to win?!" 

"Uh... I didn't. I was going to the restroom," me. Blushing to a deep shade of red. 

Yes, I did wear Converse with my sequin dress.

So I didn't go to the restroom. I just cuddled with our award all night. My co-worker was great about it. He understood. It was shiny. 

And so the evening ended and we mingled in the lobby sharing kisses and congratulations!

What the heck is a Bombogenesis?! 

Welcome 2018! And welcome cold weather to most of the US. Most crazy are the new terms that are coming out now to describe the crazy weather that is taking place. 

Which brings me to Bombogenesis. According to Live Science, "Bomb cyclones" or "weather bombs" are wicked winter storms that can rival the strength of hurricanes and are so called because of the process that creates them: bombogenesis. It's a mouthful of a meteorology term that refers to a storm (generally a non-tropical one) that intensifies very rapidly.

Yikes. 

Me? I'm nestled here in Southern California where it will be a tepid 71 degrees today. I'm wearing boots and a down jacket. Stop laughing.

I was wondering,what are people in other parts of the country doing? Do you play board games for six months? What if you have to go outside - how do you prepare? So curious! 

I reached out to a few of my friends. "What exactly is there to do outside when you're in the midst of a Bombogenesis?"

Well, um, I guess they find ways to cope with the weather as you can see in one image I got back from my question.

Now here's how I want to help - I will create a "Bombogenesis Cocktail"! That way I feel like I've done my part and also gives me a reason to play mixologist. 

And there you go. A little concoction to keep you pleasantly warm on those severely chilly winter nights ;-) I also recommend huddling for warmth. But, maybe, keep that cuddling/huddling indoors - see what happened to my snowy friends above!

Sending you all warm hugs & lots of love!

Sunny 

What's the Sex Toy Convention really like? 

Time spent with people you love is always better! That said - yes, things are a bit crazy at the bi-annual Sex Toy Convention, otherwise known as the Adult Novelty Manufacturer Expo (ANME). Not "crazy" like those stories you've heard of the Porn Convention in Las Vegas - there are no naked girls or people trying the pleasure products right there at the trade show. It's more about enjoying creativity, innovation, and the mutual appreciation of sex toys. 

One of the awesome things about this show is that I get to see a lot of new innovations in both packaging and products. Sometimes I wonder what else could possibly be invented in this industry. And then I attend a show like this and am astounded by all the new ideas. And there's a lot to love about booth after booth of gorgeous new intimate products. 

For me, the best part of the show was being able to be the Host for the 11th Annual StorErotica Awards. It was a lot of fun and, I think, everyone enjoyed the game that we played along with celebrating wins for some of the best and brightest the industry has to offer.

 

All in all, I'm once again happy to say that I love my life and I love what I do! Can't wait for the next Sex Toy Convention!

xo,

Sunny 

I love to share fun & sexy content!
