AVN Novelty Expo

Now, I'm receiving information about the upcoming AVN Novelty Expo in Los Angeles from July 13th through the 15th...which I've reviewed.

As I did at the AVN AEE, being the gadget freak-boy that I am, I was looking for some items that would catch my interest...something kinda neat. So far I haven't seem much, but I did notice an "enhancing strap" from Sportsheets. What impressed me, as always, is that it's portable: it's not a pillow or a cushion. And, once again: "Why didn't I think of that?" The picture of the packaged product is at this link, and here is a picture of the product:
