WHANGAREI, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25: (EDITORS NOTE: This image was altered using a digital filter) A sex worker rests on the bed following the successful booking from a regular client at The Bach, an ethical escort service, on May 25, 2017 in Whangarei, New Zealand. Brothel Madame Antonia Murphy founded The Bach at the start of 2017 with the aim of providing ethical escort services in the small New Zealand town of Whangerei. The Bach is built on a philosophy of protecting women's rights and emotional wellbeing while providing a safe and normal environment for what Madame Murphy believes should be considered an everyday part of life. While sex work in New Zealand has been decriminalised since 2003, The Bach is still challenging ideas around sex, prostitution and women's rights. The women who work at the Bach are all different ages and come from varied backgrounds, some with children and other jobs, some who study at use sex work as a means to pay off loans and university fees. The women say they love what they describe as the family support they receive at work, and that they are treated like they are pursuing a proper profession. Their safety is paramount, with strict rules clients must follow for the womens' protection and to make the experience safe and enjoyable. Both Madame Murphy and the women working at the Bach feel that there are many misconceptions about prostitution and sex work which is often providing a service to men with particular issues, or who are simply just lonely and seeking the company of someone who shows interest in them.

You’ve probably already seen a thousand articles guessing about what will be the year’s biggest TV show or trendiest colors, but The Healthy Pleasure Group and their CEO Dominique Karetsos may have just dropped the boldest predictions yet. They believe they have cracked the code on what will be going on between the sheets in 2021. Here’s what they say to expect in the world of sex this year.

  • Sexual Wellness Will Be A Priority. The quarantine caused a boom in sex toy sales and that’s not expected to change anytime soon. Karetsos believes the renewed focus on self-pleasure is here to stay and we’ll continue to “explore what mother nature permitted us to explore” in 2021. And she ain’t talking about hiking.
  • Sexual Spaces Online. With mainstream social platforms cracking down on sexual content, Karetsos expects more sexual safe spaces to start popping up in 2021. Not to mention sexual health apps and tools like iPlaySafe that allows users to order STD tests to their homes and make their results shareable with prospective sexual partners. We did it with COVID tests, so why not STD tests?
  • Smart sex robots and virtual reality. If Dominique is right, next holiday season the hottest robot on the market won’t be one that sweeps your floor for you but one that dirties up your bed. Expect to see a lot of excitement in the world of sex robots and AI including next-gen toys “to help women learn how to have an orgasm.”
