We all know that flowers make a perfect gift for women who are discerning and elegant. To coincide with National Orgasm Day on July 31st, Emotional Bliss, the UK vibrator company, has commissioned leading French floral designer Arôme Créateur Floral to create an aphrodisiac-themed floral arrangement.
An entirely original floral arrangement which not only appeals to Emotional Bliss’ core clientele of women aged 40 to 60 years of age, but also composed of aphrodisiacs and spices which subtly and tastefully evoke the theme of female sexuality.
The “gourmet bouquet” features a variety of seasonal blooms as well as anthuriums, an exotic flower which has an unusual appearance: a huge glossy heart, surrounding a phallic-looking stamen. Bananas, baby corn, orange peppers and carrots are included as their shape is reminiscent of sexual organs and reputed to enhance sexual desire. Ginger roots are also used as they excite the senses.
The discreet and female-oriented nature of the aphrodisiac-themed arrangement reflects the Emotional Bliss company ethos. This is particularly important to those women who might find it embarrassing to talk about sex, are reluctant to discuss any problems with their libido or who might normally regard buying a vibrator as tacky and sleazy – and not for them.
Paul Telford, Managing Director of Emotional Bliss, explains “Survey feedback from our female customers, particularly those aged 40 to 60 years of age, consistently highlights the fact that the high quality of Emotional Bliss vibrators and our tastefully elegant packaging is what makes us different from other vibrator companies, many of which fall into the tacky, sleazy genre.”
Recent user feedback (June 2008) on the new range of Emotional Bliss ‘heat’ vibrators highlights the attractive packaging and high degree of quality of the vibrators to be important to female users:
“The packaging is very stylish and smart, and quite unlike any toy I’d previously seen. It looks expensive, and a quality item.” (‘Imager’; Womolia Heat)
”The packaging was very discreet and well designed. On opening, the contents looked well made” (‘Al4Helen’; Femblossom Heat)
Emotional Bliss has spent the past five years researching and developing the new range of ‘heat’ vibrators which are fully tailored to the needs of women aged 40+. Nerve endings gradually deteriorate naturally due to ageing and also because of smoking, stress and alcohol, which means that more vibration is required with age.
Julia Cole, the psychosexual therapist, designed the vibrators for Emotional Bliss; a range of shapes and textures that caress the natural contours of a woman’s body. Julia Cole says
“Emotional Bliss vibrators have been re-mastered for 2008. We’ve listened to our customers and increased the vibrations from 120 hertz to 150 hertz as women aged 40+ prefer more intense stimulation. We’ve also created innovatory warmth which mimics the heat generated by the labia and clitoris when a woman is highly aroused, increasing her sexual response. Our 5 years of research and development means we know what women want and we’ve listened to that and have taken the steps to deliver what they asked for.”
The new range of ‘heat’ vibrators, including the Womolia heat and Femblossom heat are available to buy at www.emotionalbliss.co.uk and also at Victoria Health and via the Relate website.
