by thepleasurechest

Introducing the Club Vibe, the latest high-tech toy from OhMiBod. The Club Vibe is a bullet-shaped vibrator that can be plugged in to your iPod or MP3 player, enabling you to get off while listening to your favorite tunes. It’s like having a playlist in your panties!

Speaking of panties, the Club Vibe actually comes with a pair of black thong panties (“one size fits most”), a velvet privacy pouch and 2 AA batteries to get you started. It also has an ambient mode, which means that it will vibrate in response to the sounds around you, including your lover’s voice. If you’re not in the mood to be aurally aroused, you can always switch to manual mode and choose from 7 different vibration patterns.

To celebrate its release, we’re giving a Club Vibe away to one lucky reader this coming Friday. Here’s how to enter:

  • Simply post a comment on this here blog.
  • Tell us which song (artist & title, please!) you’d most like to get off to with your Club Vibe.

On Friday morning at 10AM PST, we’ll shuffle the playlist, and if your song comes up first, you win the Club Vibe! We’ll also award a $20 gift card to the entry with the most creative answer. You can use any name you like when commenting on our blog, but please be sure to use a valid email address so that we can reach you. Good luck!

How to Choose a Vibrator

0

by thepleasurechest

With so many buzzing, humming, and even rotating devices to choose from, what seems like a simple, sexy task can get a little intimidating. Whether you’re shopping for your first vibrator or in the market for something new, there are a few important questions you can ask yourself to help the process along.

Why should I get a vibrator?

Vibrators are fun! Most women find some kind of vibration pleasurable and many actually need that kind of steady stimulation to have an orgasm. That’s totally normal and ok. No, you won’t get addicted, but if you do find introducing a vibe into your sex life helps you get off, chances are your partner will be perfectly pleased as well.

What kind of vibrators are out there?

The amount of styles, speeds, and pulsations vibrators come in could create enough heavy breathing to power a small city for weeks.

Clitoral Vibes
are vibrators specifically designed to be used externally. Pretty much any vibrator can be used on the clit, but many clitoral vibes aren’t meant to be inserted, like The Pleasure Chest Red Mini, a one-speed, water-resistant, portable classic. One of our most popular vibrators is the two-pronged Jimmyjane Form 2, which is rechargeable, ultra-powerful, and designed to rest on either side of the clit.
iconic smoothie
Slimline Vibes remain popular because they are a bit more versatile and most are fairly inexpensive. They usually have a twist dial or push button at the bottom to control the speed. The Jimmyjane Iconic Smoothie is the obvious choice, with its ultra-powerful motor and one-year warranty. The Je Joue Uma is a luxurious alternative, rechargeable and made of body-safe silicone.
g kii
G-spot Vibes
are curved to access the g-spot. Lelo’s Gigi 2 continues to blow our minds and fly off our shelves due to the spot-on curvature, silky silicone cover, and the fact that it’s rechargeable. The fully water-submersible G-kii is covered in 100% silicone and has joints that lock in place to reach just the right spots.
rabbit habit double plus good
Rabbit-style Vibes first hopped into our hearts and top drawers courtesy of Charlotte on Sex and the City. These vibrators feature a rotating or vibrating shaft of some kind and an external clit stimulator. They’ve seen a million incarnations and copycats since, but Vibratex, the founders of the original Rabbit, with an updated classic Rabbit Habit and the amazing Sugar Pop, which features vibration and rotation patterns galore. The Fun Factory Amorino doesn’t rotate, but its ingenious band also stimulates the often-neglected clitoral legs, making it both unique and freaking awesome.
aneros vice
Anal Vibes vibrate on the delicate, sensitive nerves around the anus or on the prostate. Make sure that your toy has a base, so that it can’t possibly get pulled into your butt. We love the Aneros Vice, which doubles as a hands-free prostate massager, and the taint-tickling Naughty Boy.
We-Vibe 4 remote pink
Couples’ Vibes can only be used with a partner. They literally explode when single people turn them on. Just kidding, anyone can use vibes geared toward couples, and likewise some couples prefer more traditional vibes. The more mainstream sex gets, though, the more thoughtful sex enhancers for couples come out on the market. The We-Vibe 4 is the hottest new item for two because it’s made of silicone, waterproof, rechargeable, and can actually be worn during sex. The Mio vibrating cockring from Je Joue is one of the only rechargeable vibrating rings on the market. It gives strong sensations – including multiple speeds and vibration patters – to both partners.
little chroma
Luxury Vibes often carry a pinky-out aesthetic, but the real benefit to most of these lies in the quality, body-safe materials they’re made of. Sure, Jimmyjane’s Little Chroma is a bit of an initial investment, but it’s nearly  silent, submersible in water, and boasts a stainless steel outer layer and replaceable motor. That’s more of a smart investment than splurge, if you ask us.
kandi kisses
Discreet Vibes had to be extremely slick to get into this category. Pick one of these if you have curious kids or roommates or travel a lot. There are the obvious hidden in plain sight vibrators, like the Kandi Kisses lipstick vibe and then there are those like the Lelo Mia, which is ultra-quiet and looks nothing like a sex toy, yet has multiple speeds and vibration patters.

How do I use my vibe?

The individual vibrator’s intended use, instructions, and your personal taste will guide you, but here’s a few tips: Experiment with the on/off, speed change, and pulsation functions before you get down to business. You can use your vibrator to tease your favorite spots like nipples, neck, and thighs. A drop or two of lube helps a clit vibe glide around nicely and is a must for inserting a g-spot vibrator, vibrating dildo, or anal vibe.

Cock Extensions

Cock Extensions, Really?

OK, time for some straight talk. You were born with the dick that God gave you. (And there’s no sense complaining to her, because she’s got bigger problems to worry about.) We’re not in the business of dick shaming or size queening, around here. All penises are beautiful, and they can all give pleasure to their owners and to others. In fact, most of the nerve endings in the vagina are in the very first third. You don’t need to be Long Dong Silver to hit the magic G-Spot.

OK, enough with the disclaimer, because the truth is that we love cock extenders. What are they, you ask? A cock extender is a hollow sleeve or sheath, usually made of rubber, that fits on the end of your penis, giving you up to a few inches of extra length and girth. They can be worn with or without a condom, and they don’t need any harnesses or straps to stay in place. So, why would anyone want to try a cock extension? Here are just a few reasons you might want to extend your reach under the sheets.

Plunge the Depths

Fat Boy Sport

A cock extension can allow you to go where no man has gone before. If your partner is female, those few extra inches could reach her cervix. (And yes, there are women who love to feel pressure on their cervix). The extra girth also means a fuller feeling for vaginal and anal sex, whether your partner is male or female.

Last longer

OK, this might be obvious, but a penis extender will reduce sensations for the wearer. So, if you’re the kind of guy who needs a little help to keep from coming, this will likely do the trick. Or, if you’ve already come, you can grab an extension and keep fucking to your heart’s content.

It’s Kinky

Maybe you like how the bulge looks when you’re wearing a penis extender under your pants. Or you like the way your improbably large cock looks and feels as it plunges into your partner. Or maybe you’re a submissive who kinda gets off believing that you’ll never be able to satisfy without a few extra inches of silicone. If you enjoy orgasm denial, this can be a great way to pleasure your master or mistress without coming. Whatever your kink, a penis extender can be a great tool to bring your fantasies to life. You may never be John Holmes or Jeff Stryker, but with a cock extension, you and your partner can enjoy the fantasy.

Choosing a Cock Extension

 

If erectile dysfunction is your issue, the body-safe silicone Vixskin Ride On fits comfortably over a flaccid penis. Even better, it’s designed to anchor around your balls to stay in place during vigorous play. If you’re worried about losing the sensation on your sweet spot, the Fat Boy Stretchy Extender is lined with deliciously stimulating texture, giving the wearer extra pleasure and an extra inch of girth. (Try the smaller Sport model for a snugger fit.) If you’re after the monster cock fantasy, the Oxballs Dude Cock Sheath will provide all the extra size and bulging veins you could want.

Turn On or Buzz Off? MMA Throwdown Bed

1

by thepleasurechest

First things first. Here are the results of last week’s poll about the adorable anthropomorphic “massagers” of the Bzzzbuddies product line.

You loved these little critters, by a whopping 81%. We heard you loud and clear. So, we’re going to adopt a few of the Bzzzbuddies very soon!

This week’s contender is the MMA Throwdown Bed, a bed especially designed for fans of mixed martial arts. The version pictured on the site is marketed to children. And, though we love a good pillow fight, we gotta wonder if this is the best way to get your kids to sleep at night. Here are the specs:

Crafted from poplar hardwood poles, MDF frame with steel undercarriage bed supports.

With the use of actual fencing, 9 gauge 6 core centers, foam padded rails and synthetic leather covers, this will last forever, just like the real deal. MDF Stairs include replica diamond plating Throwdown Anvil detail.


The site also mentions that they make the MMA Throwdown Bed for adults, including Queen & King sizes! We think this might be a great gift for wrestling fetishists and other folks who like it rough.

So, what do you think? Would you throw down your hard earned cash for this bed? Take our poll.

Blowjobs & Beyond: A blow by blow

by thepleasurechest

"I feel lucky to be alive in this day and age, where such a class could exist and be accessible to anyone..."

Ever wonder what it’s like to attend one of our free educational workshops? Nuala from the House of Goddess wrote this lovely review, and sang the praises of our very own Jamila, one of the many awesome Sex Specialists at The Pleasure Chest. This was our favorite passage:

Honestly and mostly, I was blown away (no pun intended) by the mere thought of it all: I feel lucky to be alive in this day and age, where such a class could exist and be accessible to anyone; where a woman could instruct a large group of eager adults (about 100 or so) how to give head and pleasure a cock. It was educational, enlightening, and fun. It was an open, safe forum of discussion, and many unshamefully asked questions that prompted equally unabashed answers. There was an elderly couple listening in, as well, and I wondered if they wished they had had a forum like this in their horny younger years.

Amen to that. If you haven’t checked out our free workshops yet, please be our guest!

Turn On or Buzz Off? Bzzzbuddies

1

by thepleasurechest

One of the best parts of working at The Pleasure Chest is the opportunity to experience the great wide, weird world of human sexuality. The sex toy industry is exploding, and it seems like there are hundreds of new products each year, many of them seeking to serve customers whose tastes run far outside of the mainstream.

We can’t resist sharing some of these toys with you, and we want to know if you’d consider buying them. So today we introduce a new feature on the blog: Turn On or Buzz Off? The idea is simple. We highlight an unusual product, and you tell us what you think.

Today’s toy for consideration is the line of Bzzzbuddies. Meet Pandy, Shivers, Frisky & Paws, the adorable critters from this kawaii menagerie of “personal massagers” (vibrators). The Bzzzbuddies are waterproof, phthalate-free, plastic vibes, with four interchangeable tips. Each Bzzzbuddy has its own “story,” which is included on the back of the box. Here’s the 411 on Frisky, the pink pussycat of the Bzzzbuddy line:

Frisky is a curious little kitty cat. Everything in the world seems so new and exciting to her! Every day Frisky spends her time exploring and finding new things to pique her curiosity. Whether it’s something to play with or a new place to hide, Frisky loves to explore and experience her life to the fullest. It’s a wonderful time for Frisky because she knows that some day, she will be held, loved, and played with all day long.

Cute, right? It sounds like the blurb on the back of a children’s book! The Bzzzbuddies remind us of the popular Hello Kitty vibrator, but their marketing also seems like a good fit for those with age-play fantasies. In fact, they’d probably make a great gift for the babyfur on your Christmas list.

So now, we put it to you dear reader? What do you think of the Bzzzbuddies? Turn on? Or Buzz Off? Take our poll!

Rocker finds love at The Pleasure Chest

by thepleasurechest

We were, uh, “changing channels” the other night, when we stumbled upon a show called Married to Rock. Check out this brief inspirational clip about how Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens met his wife Josie.

As many of our customers know, The Pleasure Chest is an awesome place to meet the love of your life. Ironically, AOL Chicago thinks we’re also a great place to breakup. (We disagree. Tears are bad for business!)

Speaking of rockers who shop at The Pleasure Chest, please enjoy this classic photo of Joan Jett posing in front of our old digs in West Hollywood.
