English term or phrase: props
You didn't tell me about the news sexual doors that you were trying to explore with your girlfriend? Were there props involved? Costumes? An invited guest?

Sorry if the question seems obscene.

Thanks in advance,

agree  Tony M: Nothing wrong with the source text, apart from the 's' on 'new. Yes, 'props' as in TV/theatre = properties = accessories like handcuffs, whips, gags, sex-toys, etc.
