‘Evine After Dark’ to sell sexy stuff

September 21, 2017

Evine is taking a walk on the wild side. It’s going where no home shopping network has gone before. Let’s talk about sex.

This week, late night, it is debuting a new program called “Evine After Dark” that will feature “intimate goods.” The merchandise, we are told by the Evine folk, will include lingerie for women of all sizes, massage-oil candles and bathing items.

We have already received an inquiry about the show from a reader who saw that Evine host Kimberly Wells had mentioned it on Facebook.

“Join Dr. Sari Locker & me for a pioneering & exciting new show designed to help women feel confident and empowered about their bodies and personal sexuality!” Wells wrote.

“We will be featuring luxury romance & intimacy products such as lotions, oils & body sprays as well as elegant robes, nighties and more. Educational, entertaining & sound advice to embolden you to celebrate your inner beauty-join us! xx”

Dr. Locker’s website describes her as a leading sex educator.

We sure hope Chuck Clemency doesn’t wind up on this new show with nipple rings or some such stuff!

Evine, as the No. 3 home shopping network competing against industry giants QVC and HSN, is taking a chance and thinking out of the box. We think it could cut two ways. It may be a real opportunity to provide women a way to shop privately for such items, without facing salespeople. Or, if Evine’s audience is as conservative as some may think it is, “Evine After Dark” will not go over well with that crowd.

We certainly don’t recall a home shopping network hawking “intimate items” — some lingerie, of course, but no massage oils, in the past!

In fact, the networks have been rather prudish. We remember laughing our butts off a number of years ago when QVC host Lisa Robertson was selling NARS cosmetics, and she was not allowed to say the name of the brand’s most popular powder: Orgasm.

It was absurd.

The network promises that its new show will be tastefully done and offer women a comfortable outlet to buy intimate goods. It debuts Saturday at 1 a.m. ET.


Lingerie Designer Josie Natori Coming To HSN This Week

October 28, 2013

What’s with all the home shopping news these days?

We were watching rock god Jay King on HSN Sunday night when we saw a promo for famed upscale lingerie designer Josie Natori, who premieres a line called N Natori on the network Tuesday.

The pieces include pretty print dresses, tops, pants, robes, PJs and caftans. It looks good, but pricey. A dress we like is $120.
