Photos of the Everything to Do with Sex Show Toronto

The annual Everything to Do with Sex show was back in Toronto this weekend, offering visitors a chance to see what's new in the world of sex, explore their kinky side, and stock up on toys, batteries and sex tips.

Running from Friday until midnight on Sunday at the South building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the show was packed with vendors selling everything from vibrators and condom floral arrangements, to sexy models trying to sell you on limos, resorts and paintball. There's even on-site teeth whitening treatment and cosmetic surgery consultation. The vendors selling giant sex swings and furniture take credit cards, but most others are cash only.

Those in the market for new toys and supplies were treated to a dizzying array of size, function and colours to choose from, and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful with questions and comparisons.

Taking a break from shopping, one was able to chat with Playboy models, or head to the seminar room and main stage for education and entertainment.

Seminars ranged from tips for better orgasms to a beginner's guide to anal sex, and the main stage had features including lingerie fashion shows, burlesque routines and male dancers.

A particular highlight of the show was the photography-prohibited Dungeon. It's a place to learn and ask questions about BDSM, and watch other volunteers — or volunteer to — be tied up and suspended, whipped against a St. Andrew's cross, or electrocuted by a violet wand. Just outside is the Dungeon Stage, where, depending on the session, an enthusiastic Lady J gives tips on spicing up your love life with everyday items, demonstrates the use of a vac bed, or explains the merits between a smooth paddle versus one with holes.

Other highlights include the Toronto Roller Derby girls skating around, body painting by Ark Angel, and an octogenarian who goes to the show every year dressed as a naked Energizer bunny.

The only feature entertainment that drew resentment from the audience and walkouts was the hypnosis show. The hypnotist went for the cliches — making fun of the fat girl, getting the two pretty ones to simulate lesbian sex, and having the men dance together before cracking a Brokeback Mountain joke and then hastily adding the old "not that there's anything wrong with that" line.

Other than that, the Everything to Do with Sex show was a fun, safe and open experience for singles, couples and everyone (of adult age) in between.

P.S. To the ladies and gay men, next time he's in town, don't miss Assassin. The only thing I wrote in my notes was an underlined, "Damn."
