Swag With Swagger from Male Power
Men who like the look and feel of silk, but not the cost, will really enjoy the Rayon Swag collection from Male Power.
Rayon, nylon and spandex combine to create highly
attractive undergarments that are sensationally soft and stretchable. The fabric, in either black or taupe, contains a subtle texture and a hint of sheen. Rayon Swag comes in five classic styles, including racer back tank top, mini short, wonder bikini, wonder thong and posing strap.

California Exotic Novelties Wishes Al Bloom Congratulations on Retirement
Industry Legend, Pioneer and Advocate Celebrates His Amazing Career
Industry legend, pioneer, and advocate Al Bloom is retiring from California Exotic Novelties after eleven years. Susan Colvin and the California Exotic Novelties’ team, along with many others in the industry, wish him warm congratulations.
Susan Colvin, President and CEO of California Exotic Novelties, says, “It has been an honor and privilege to work with Al over the years. His charm, dedication, and wit will be missed around the office. We wish Al all the best in his retirement; however we refuse to say goodbye! We know Al will come back to visit often and we greatly appreciate that he’ll continue to consult for the company.”
Al Bloom is a graduate of Kent State University and has a BBA in marketing. During his early career from 1970 to 1976, he was the general manager for Capitol News Agency. From 1976 to 1978 he was the general manager of Sovereign News Company—now known as Transworld News, Inc. In 1979 he became the president, and then later the owner, of Caballero Home Video, which was once the largest film producer in the adult film industry. He was also the vice president and co-owner of Vidco Entertainment, also an adult film producer, from 1987 to 1993.

In 1993 Bloom transitioned to the novelty side of the industry as the marketing manager at Doc Johnson Enterprises. He worked there until 1998 when he became a partner at M&M Sales, which was a major novelty distribution company until 2003.
Bloom took the role of marketing director of California Exotic Novelties in 2003. In 2012 he was promoted to senior director of business affairs. The company is the world’s largest manufacturer of adult novelties and Bloom also served parallel positions at its sister company, JOPEN, starting in 2010.
“I’ve developed so many friends in this wonderful industry and I am touched by everyone’s kind words as I step into retirement. Thank you for all the memories and I will think of you often while I’m teeing up on the golf course!” Bloom says.
Bloom made many notable achievements including receiving the 1989 Joel Warner “Good Guy” Award which was presented by the Adult Video Association. In 2003 he was honored with the “Industry Founder’s Award” by the Free Speech Coalition—a non-profit organization which Bloom helped found.
In 2009 Bloom was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame. 2011 saw him honored with the degree of Honoris Causa Doctor of Arts from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. In 2012 Al received the XBIZ Executive Leadership Award for the Novelty Industry.
Bloom is moving to Arizona with his wife. Everyone at California Exotic Novelties will miss the man that has served as their mentor and friend.

Hanesbrands to Buy DBApparel
Hanesbrands Inc said it will buy former sister company DBApparel in a deal for 400 million euros ($545 million) on an enterprise basis, bringing back 
together two global lingerie brands.
Hanesbrands and DBApparel were both owned by Sara Lee Corp until 2006, when private equity firm Sun Capital Partner Inc bought Paris-based DBApparel.
The deal will bring together the Wonderbra and Playtex brands, which DBApparel had sold in Europe. HanesBrands holds the rights for the two lingerie brands elsewhere and has other clothing brands, such as Hanes and Champion.
Hanesbrands said the deal is expected to add more than $875 million in annual net sales and about $125 million in adjusted operating profit within three or four years of closing.
The cash deal, which values DBApparel at about 7.5 times EBITDA, is expected by Hanesbrands to close in the third quarter.
Hanesbrands bought rival Maidenform Brands Inc last July for $547 million in its biggest-ever acquisition to expand its range of lingerie for younger consumers.
Analysts had expected Hanesbrands to make acquisitions in the second half of this year, given its strong cash flow. It had cash and cash equivalents of $151.1 million as of March 29.
Hanesbrands said it would use cash on hand and third-party borrowings to fund the DBApparel deal, which also requires consultation with European and French works councils representing its employees. DBApparel's other innerwear brands include DIM, which it sells primarily in Western and Central Europe, with DIM accounting for about half of total 
The deal still needs the approval of the European and French works councils.
