Being invisible is one of the worse nightmares of this century; fame is associated with wealth, success, and happiness. Whether you want to be a successful musician, hairstylist, or broker, you need to get out there and announce to the Internet world that you exist. The best way to do so is to create your Instagram business profile. However, there are a lot of people who want to be famous without offering any products; they want to be followed for their image only.
Posting your own nude pictures is the fastest way to draw the attention of Instagram users. Also, in modern times, showing off your body parts or acting sexy is considered beautiful. You can blame Hollywood stars and Victoria secret models for creating this new concept of beauty.

Gender-neutral sex toys
According to estimates, the adult toy market will reach 35 billion dollars USD by 2023. Vibrators are now more accessible than ever. Thirty years ago, it was unusual to have one, but times have changed – nowadays, around 64 % of women (aged 17- 32) in the United States use vibrators on a regular basis. Sex toy companies don’t want to limit themselves to female customers only, so every year, marketers invent new toys to satisfy men as well, such as prostate toys, penis rings, and pumps.
The sex toy industry requires a lot of creativity. The gender-neutral sex toy is one of the outcomes of productive days in the American sex toy company. The main idea of the toy is that ‘pleasure knows no gender.’ The invention called ‘Transformer’ can be used by a couple and for solo playing (we certainly review them often enough here on Tech Trends).Around 64 % of women (aged 17- 32) in the United States use vibrators on a regular basis Click To Tweet

HIV Sex Roulette
To keep your sex life exciting, you need to be open to trying new things. Some people tried it all – different partners, positions, places, sex toys, orgies, etc. That’s how sex roulette was created. Basically, it is an orgy where one person is HIV positive. Psychologists explain that high adrenaline can help get intense orgasms. The idea of HIV sex roulette had originated in Spain. At the moment, there is no information on the extent of the problem. Hopefully, it won’t become a trend among adventure seekers, but it shows how with any basic human compulsion, the dark side is never far away.
Free the nipple
Free the nipple movement encourages equality and freedom of sexual expression. The global campaign was inspired by the movie with the same name. Women want to have equal rights as men; they don’t understand why girls can’t go topless in public just like men. To get the main point of the movement across, male and female campaigners strip off their tops every year in different countries of the world. Celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Kimmel, Simon Holtznagel and Kendall Jenner endorsed the protest. Nowadays, men and women around the world post their topless pictures on social media to support the movement.Free the nipple movement encourages equality and freedom of sexual expression Click To Tweet
