After Banning Sex Toy at CES, Officials Reverse Course and Hand It An Innovation Award

The owner of CES has reversed course–again–and given the maker of a sex toy one of its CES 2019 Innovation Awards.

The Os?, an adult novelty from startup Lora DiCarlo, initially won a CES Innovation Award, but later had that award rescinded and later prohibited the product from exhibiting at the show. On Wednesday, the Consumer Technology Association admitted that was the wrong move.

“CTA did not handle this award properly,” said Jean Foster, CTA’s senior vice president of marketing and communications. “This prompted some important conversations internally and with external advisors and we look forward to taking these learnings to continue to improve the show.”

DiCarlo made sure media and CES attendees knew about the controversy. While she was not allowed on the show floor, she did exhibit at a popular media event that runs in conjunction with CES, where she had large signs on display blasting the CTA for its decision.

The decision to ban Os? from the show was especially curious, since adult novelty company OhMiBod has been a regular attendee for several years (and even won a Best of CES award in the the “Digital Health and Fitness Product” category in 2016).

Trojan condoms has also shown branded sex toys in years past. And Naughty America, an adult film studio, was on the CES show floor in 2019, albeit in a private meeting room in the back of the show floor.

Following this year’s controversy, some adult-themed companies told Fortune that they had been told they would not be allowed back to CES next year. It’s unclear if the CTA’s decision to give DeCarlo back the Innovation award will result in the group re-inviting those companies. The group said it will share “related policy updates” in the months leading up to CES 2020.

Sex and CES have always been strange bedfellows. For years, CES ran at the same time as the Adult Entertainment Expo. And from the 1980s through 1998, the show had an adult software section where porn stars and adult filmmakers mingled with show-goers.

“I am thankful that the CTA has reconsidered our eligibility for this award and validated the innovation our engineering team is responsible for,” said Lora Haddock, founder and CEO of Lora DiCarlo. “The incredible support and attention we’ve received in the wake of our experience highlights the need for meaningful changes and we are hopeful that our small company can continue to contribute meaningful progress toward making CES inclusive for all.”

How to travel with hand luggage only


Traveling light can be tough, especially with all the wonderful amenities we’re used to in day-to-day life. Packing light can really benefit your trip; wherever you may be going, it limits how heavy your luggage is and minimizes the possibility of losing a whole load of stuff. Besides, if you’re going traveling and you pack light, it stops you from worrying about what shorts go with which top, and it focuses your mind on the task at hand.

Get the right bag

This is probably the most vital part, is making sure you have chosen a bag that fits the hand luggage specification. Dimensions can change per airline, so it’s usually safer to go via the smallest, so you don’t get caught out. Don’t worry though, because they are all very similar; they’re just incredibly strict. You can check specifications online and then, if you don’t already have a bag that fits the requirements, then you will need to go purchase one. If you don’t follow this step, then your bag won’t be classed as hand luggage, and your efforts will have been for nothing. So, get the correct bag.

How many clothes to take

It can be tempting to take all of your very best items of clothing, but honestly, there’s no need. Make sure you pack clothes that can all be put together with each other. Don’t worry yourself over fashion sense; you’re going traveling, no one cares. Some experts have suggested using the ‘rule of three’ which is one pair to wear, one pair to wash and one pair drying. This essentially means you only need three of everything, even if you’re going away for two weeks as they’ll be on an effective rotation system.

It’s all in the roll

It’s not just what you pack; it’s how you pack it. This means that doing the usual fold that you do at home just isn’t going to work as well when you’re going traveling. We like to say that it’s all in the roll, while this may not be a great aesthetic for at home, it’s perfect for this. Rolling all your clothes into your bag will not only prevent creases, but it will also save on space.

Only pack necessities

What we mean by this is more the unnecessary bottles of items. You do not need to pack shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream and so on – not even the teeny weeny travel ones. The travel sizes are costly for the actual quantity, so that’s a money saver right there. More importantly, this is something you can purchase when you’ve reached your destination, and you won’t need to try and get it through airport security either. So, think twice before putting in anything you can purchase at your destination.

Entertainment

Last but not least, okay well it’s the least important, even if it might be a bit painful without it. However, technology has come a long way, and we now have the ability to pre-download TV shows, eBooks, movies and so on. This means ditch the physical copies, you don’t need your favorite magazine, and you don’t need to read those paperbacks. This saves space and allows you as much entertainment as your heart desires.

Traveling with only your hand luggage is much easier once you understand that most of what you’re planning on packing isn’t necessary at all. It will allow you to relax and enjoy your destination. Happy traveling!

Mountain rescue: Why bothies need a helping hand – a photo essay

Bothies, free to use by anyone out in remote parts of the UK, are more popular than ever. But they’re maintained by veteran volunteers and need younger blood if they are to survive for future generations

The Mountain Bothies Association (MBA) is a charity made up of volunteers who maintain more than 100 remote shelters across England, Wales and Scotland. It was founded in 1965 by Bernard Heath after he spotted a remark in the visitor book at the Backhill of the Bush bothy in Galloway Forest park, suggesting the setting up of a club to save a growing number of deserted farm buildings from ruin.

‘House of Cards’ tries making the best of a bad hand

“House of Cards” and “Roseanne” don’t have much in common, but their new seasons both faced an unenviable situation — trying to forge ahead without the central character, whose departure was triggered by off-screen controversy. Dealt that bad hand, the “Cards” writers have responded with a truncated final season — one that elevates Robin Wright’s role her new Commander in Chief status, while still providing a window into the world of bare-knuckled political brawling.

Humor and Horror Go Hand in Hand in These Spooky Stories

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

As anyone with a cursory knowledge of Halloween knows—which is to say, anyone from age two and up—the model ghost is a haunt who is skilled at parting you from your ability to remain unafraid.

Whether emerging from beneath your bed, the recesses of your closet, or the family crypt where you drink a pony of liquor each year to toast those who’ve have gone before, the best ghosts are in the terror business.

But what of the ghosts who make us laugh? What of their rich literary history? In even the scariest ghost stories, there tends to be some humor. Something potent often sparks its opposite, so humor works well with terror for the same reason that you see death and life and love and hate riding together.
