This small, personal protection lipstick, is made by Mace and will surprise unruly men, who get a little too personal, a little too fast! Us women know that sometimes, we need to stand our ground and not let anyone cross our barrier, and take advantage of us. We may be physically, the weakest sex, but that doesn't mean we can't defend ourselves.

Here's where the fashionable, Mace Lipstick Pepper Spray comes in to play. It's a powerful and effective, personal protection weapon… a must to include in your purse! This Mace pepper spray lipstick, contains approximately 6 shots of hot pepper, that can reach up to 10 feet! It's small, only measures approximately 4" h x 1". The beauty of this item, is that even if it's small, it still can cause temporary damage on a would be attacker. Shooting this weapon toward the face of an aggressive person will make them slam their eyes shut! The pepper spray will burn so much that they will temporarily not be able to see. Plus, it will feel like their face, eyes and throat are on fire and they will start coughing up a storm. This opens a window of opportunity for you to escape, unharmed. It also includes an invisible UV dye, that helps authorities identify the attacker, if captured.

Add this self defense, lipstick spray weapon, into your purse or pocket. Always be prepared and carry fashionable self defense protection, wherever you go!

Advantages of Thicker Pepper Spray

Not all pepper sprays are made the same and using a gel or foam base product, can have advantages over the conventional lighter varieties.

Gels: Mace Large, Magnum & Night Defender   l   Foams: Mace Large & Magnum. Plus Streetwise foam

The most common defense sprays in our society are the thin stream, watery ones. This is because they have been around longer and usually cost less. But many people don't realize that there are thicker varieties that can be more effective.

What we call thicker, are the Pepper Gels and Pepper Foam varieties. The Gel kind, sticks to an attacker's face longer and are harder to take off, therefore they burn the eyes and face more. It causes coughing attacks and temporary blindness, since a person won't be able to open their eyes, due to the burning sensation! The Foam personal protection ones are similar in that, they also stick longer. But the main advantage of this particular substance is that it expands! So after you shoot a stream, it actually grows and engulfs the attacker's face, covering the entire face while it expands and penetrates through every portion of their face. Therefore it is very hard to take off, giving you an opportunity to escape. Similar to what a meringue pie looks like when you throw it at someone's face! Since both kinds of sprays are thicker, they perform better in windy conditions and actually reach further, as well.

We carry Mace Gel in Large and Magnum defense models and another of the same line, called the Night Defender. The Night Defender has a built-in bright LED light! This light also confuses a criminal and blinds them temporarily; a double whammy! Besides that, we carry Mace Foam, in Large and Magnum models, as well! But Mace is not the only brand we carry. Just like Mace, our StreetWise brand also is available in a Pepper FOAM 18%, which is reasonably priced.

Personal protection is very important, and now you are aware of the options you have as far as defense spray consistencies. We hope this has helped your decision on what personal protection product you would feel comfortable with!

We sometimes see women with huge purses that must weigh a ton, and most of the time, it is full with makeup, brush, cellphone, wallet, perfume… The list goes on and on, but the most important item, is missing! You would think that with all the crime against women these days, they would carry some sort of affordable weapon. Unfortunately, that's not the case and we are here to convince you to "Carry"!

This rechargeable and sleek, self defense stun gun weapon, will drop an attacker to the ground, by just touching them with it.

The Best Personal Alarm for the Urban Lifestyle

Some cities in our country don't allow citizens to carry pepper spray or stun devices. But you can still deter muggers, criminals or even rapists with a personal alarm, in an urban setting!

Photo by Erik Daniel Drost
We all know that muggers, criminals and rapists don't like to attract attention to themselves, especially when they are committing a crime. If you live in the city, you might consider purchasing a personal alarm. One of the best available is probably one of the most affordable, it's called the Mace Screecher Personal Alarm. This affordable, Mace product has a 116 decibel sonic blast, but it actually seems louder than 116 decibels. It could easily be considered to sound as loud as 130 decibels. We tested it outside a residence, in windy conditions and it was heard inside, through 3 walls, loud and clear! The sound is from the aerosol it contains and it is similar to the horns you sometimes hear in football games, but with a higher pitch, ear piercing, shriek. This personal alarm is perfect for the urban setting. We all know that with all the city traffic, horns and conversations going on, a mediocre device would not do the trick!

The affordable, $10.95, Mace Aerosol Screecher contains 20 short shrieks or blasts and it's pitch can be heard 1/4 mile away! It's also small, measures only 4 1/4 inches long by 7/8 diameter round. The Screecher is not only perfect for deterring muggers, criminals and rapists in urban settings, but it's also great for kids in parks, to alert their parents, the elderly or anyone walking alone at night in the city! And… no batteries are required!

October is Also Domestic Violence Month

Breast Cancer sometimes overshadows the fact that this month is also dedicated to the domestic violence problem we have in our country. 

Photo by -mrsraggle-
Just like rape or sexual assault is an epidemic in our nation, so is domestic violence. There are very few people in our country that have not been exposed to this problem, either through their parents, relatives or neighbors. It's a family problem, because if children are present, it's their problem as well. Many times, economic issues drive up the amount of cases, and just worsens the outcome of these situations. Children do poorly in school and most of the time, the wife is the focus of abuse. Plus, lets not forget that in a few cases, the husbands are the ones being abused...

Fortunately, there are many shelters in our nation for violent abuse episodes and women can escape before it's too late. We found a website that actually helps women and offers tips on how to prepare for themselves and their children's escape, from these domestic violence situations. It's called, "THE HOTLINE" and while a woman reads through the site, it actually has a link constantly on the website, that a woman can select, if their abuser peeks over their shoulder, to find out what she is reading about… It's call the "QUICK ESCAPE". She can just click on it and the "Google Search" website shows up instead! Plus, there really is a phone hotline on the site; 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). It too, is present at all times while searching through THE HOTLINE website.

If you or someone you know is dealing with domestic violence, please let them know about THE HOTLINE website, for planning her escape to safety.

Over 5,000 Boy Scouts of America Cases of Sexual Abuse

Recently, the Los Angeles Times posted the Boy Scouts of America files, dated between 1947 to 2005. It shows names of accused individuals, dates, city, state, unit number and many detailed documents of the sexual abuse that took place.

Reading thru some of the cases was overwhelming and the horrific information database, spans thru decades! Most files contained information of about 5,000 men and a few women that were accused of sexual abuse and expelled from the Boy Scouts of America. Such as their physical description, profession, if married or single, children they had, etc. Also included in most, is the correspondence that took place inside the organization and outside as well, like information from the police or family members of the victims. Many individuals had long histories of police records, as well!

You can search through the Boy Scouts of America database by year, city, state, etc. There is even a map you can click on, to narrow your search. To go to the database and for more information, click HERE.

Slightly Larger Pepper Spray Can Be Used More Often

Photo by fxp
This 17% pepper spray is 3/4 oz. versus the regular size spray, which is a 1/2 ounce. Therefore you won't run out of the self defense weapon as fast, and for only $6.95, you can't go wrong!

In case you don't know what 17% means, it's the concentration of pepper within the unit. Most other products only have 10% concentration. Making this baby HOTTER than the average defense spray! Aim this 3/4 oz. self defense weapon into a criminal's eyes and watch them shut their eyes tightly. This is due to the pepper burning the criminals eyes as well as their face. They will cough up a storm and be totally helpless in their agony. You in turn, can escape safely, while the attacker is crying for mercy!

The Pepper Spray 17% 3/4 oz. Keychain Soft Case, also contains a UV Dye. When you spray an attacker in self defense with this weapon, the dye will mark him or her invisibly. If police capture the attacker, this dye will help verify to police that they have captured the right criminal!

List of Ways to Rape Women Found in Miami University

A flyer was found in the men's bathroom at Miami University in Ohio, with a title that read, "The Top 10 Ways To Get Away With Rape". Actually offering tips to readers on how to commit a crime against female students.

Photo by muohace_dc
The fact that someone or some group decided to place a flyer at Miami University, explaining how to rape females, is one of the most disturbing crime news we've ever come across. This piece of paper actually had instructions on how to go about committing the crime, such as; how to climb into windows, slit a victim's throat, focusing on women walking by themselves, etc. As it stands, women get raped more in university campuses, compared to women in general society today!

The officials at Miami University, called for a mandatory meeting for all their male students to attend and started an investigation on this rape instructions flyer. We suspect that if caught, he or them will just say it was a practical joke...

In this country rape is a very serious matter for women and definitely not a joke. Let's just hope that Miami University, gets to the bottom of this!

Sexual Whistles and Harassment by Men in Cities

Men whistle at you, while you are walking in the city and say, "Hey baby jump in my bed", "You can sit on my lap", "Give me some of that a...". You get the idea. Many women are victims of this and have to listen to it, on a daily basis.

Hollaback! website video. Click here to watch!
Most Women, no matter how old, what race or what language they speak, are sooner or later, victims of some sort of sexual harassment while walking in the streets, on a bus or subway. It's these constant comments from men that don't even know your name, but feel free to have a sexual conversation with you, by embarrassing you. Not only are there comments, but there's also groping while in a bus or train. For most women, this is intimidating and can be very scary, to say the least!

Some cities have laws in place to discourage men from doing this. Cities like New York and the State of Connecticut, which can penalize someone if they harass you constantly. In California, you have to be touched by an individual, in order for them to be penalized! But many cities don't have laws like these. They have harassment laws that only apply in the workplace, but not ones for the streets. It's important for all cities to have some sort of law, because harassment can turn ugly, too!

If you are a frequent victim of sexual harassment in the city, you might want to find out what laws are in place, if any! There is also a websites called, Hollaback!, which encourages women to tell their story and accepts donations for several changes that the organization is helping with, in the US and abroad as well.

You don't have to be harassed in the streets anymore by men. Know your rights, and if your city doesn't have laws in place, try to do something about it!

Ever Need to Step Out but Don't Want to Carry a Big Purse?

Many times us women just need our essentials such as our ID, keys, cell and a credit card, to go somewhere. But we end up hauling a big purse for our outing anyway! Even if it's not convenient.

Holster made by Body Glove
The older I get, the more practical I've become. One of the things that has always worried me, is putting my purse down somewhere and then someone stealing it. The less stuff I have to take, the better. Sometimes us women want to go to fun places and free our hands to eat, play or exercise too!

The fashionable Body Glove Holster with belt clip, is in our store because its convenient for carrying some of our products such as our stun guns, pepper spray or any other small self defense device. But I like to think about it, as being a handy small purse. This handy item has a belt clip behind it, so you can attach it to your pants, skirt or pocket. This holster's exterior is made of a rubberized material, that prevents slipping. It has a snappy cover, with 2 Handy magnets that keep this fashionable item closed! No zipping or pressing a button, just push it down and it's closed! Some parts of this holster are also stitched, giving it an attractive look. Plus, the interior has a thin, black velvety material.

Lets be perfectly clear here, putting things in your bra, is not classy!... So ladies, all you have to take on your next errand is this small convenient purse with belt clip and your absolute essentials, inside of it. Oh, almost forgot, this fashionable item measures approximately 4.5 wide by 2.75 tall and 1.5 inches thick.

Should Children Trick or Treat at Sex Offenders' Front Door?

We all know that you can go to your neighborhood sheriff's website and find out where sex offenders live. But how comfortable are you in having your children, knock on their doors, during Halloween?

Photo by hanna_horwarth
Back in the 70's there was the fear of razor blades in apples and poisoned candy. Now, many cities are concerned about sex offenders or pedophiles. For example, in a city in California, there is an ordinance in place that does not allow sex offenders to display halloween decor outside their homes. The sex offenders are also not allowed to open the door if trick or treaters knock. It also prohibits these individuals to light up their lights outside, after dark. Plus, the ordinance also requires sex offenders or pedophiles to place a sign on their doors with one inch lettering. This sign is required to read: "No candy or treats at this residence."

But these cautionary measures for children aren't only in California... In a neighborhood in Florida, a home association motioned to dispatch a security guard to keep an eye or monitor a sex offender's home during Halloween. In Georgia some uniformed guards were placed at a neighborhood's gated entrance, to distribute flyers informing neighbors, where the pedophiles lived.

There are some lawyers already filing lawsuits in courts, stating that these types of laws or ordinances, infringe on the First Amendment rights of pedophiles. What's your view on this issue? Is it worth while for the safety of our children on Halloween? Or does it go overboard and is it unconstitutional against pedophiles?

How Serious of a Rape Problem do We Have in the USA?

It's a very serious problem. To prove it we have some statistics for you that we find very discouraging... Fortunately, women can improve these statistics.

Women, especially young ones, think that they will never be a victim of sexual assault. Maybe because they haven't lived long enough to see the stream of rape reports or met anyone who has mentioned that they've been raped. The stigma, is so bad, that many of these crimes go unreported, as well!
We are here to tell you that, just as you fasten your seat belt when you get in a car, you should also fasten or carry a self defense weapon such as pepper spray with you at all times. With the exception of when you are at home, of course. Some might say this is very extreme... But statistics don't lie and the statistics are showing that women are more likely to be raped than the chances of an automobile accident to occur in our country. That's because this life threatening crime can occur in schools or universities, at work, parking lots, stairways, parks, alleys... The place or circumstances are endless. Perhaps you might say that men can also be victims of this, but unfortunately, women are the majority of the victims. What do car seat belts and self defense pepper spray weapons have in common? Well, they both may save lives. In fact, we looked up the statistics and this is what we found for the year 2009. Mind you, not all of these crimes are reported!

2009 U.S.A Statistics
Car Accidents:     10,800,000 (source: United States Census Bureau)
Sexual Assaults:  29,300,000 (source: Wikipedia)

Basically there were almost 3 times more rape crimes in this country than there were car accidents in 2009! The number of sexual assaults in our country placed us in 8th place, in the entire world.

So carry a pepper spray weapon ladies, and buckle up in self defense, as well as in your automobile! It's up to you, to change the statistics and not become a victim!
