Bachelorette Basics

1

by thepleasurechest

Why let guys have all the fun? A bachelorette party is the bride’s last hurrah. Here are some tips for sending her off in style.

Location! Location! Location!

Depending on your guest of honor and her friends, your party can take many shapes. Will you have an intimate dinner party? Or a wild night of bar hopping and strip clubs? Will you be in a hotel or cruising in a limo? This is all up to you and your guests. If you’re looking to make the night interesting and educational, you may want to consider a Pleasure Chest workshop.

pecker balloonsParty Supplies

Whether you’re having a house party, hitting a strip club or taking over the local bar (or all three!), you’re gonna need supplies. Here are some essential party items:

• Your first priority is to get a Bachelorette Party Banner to identify your turf.

• You can’t have a party without balloons. Get these Naughty Party Balloons for decorating your space or announcing your presence wherever you go.

• Stand out! This is your chance to make a scene. The Pecker Whistles will tell everyone who’s in your party, and will help you find each other in crowded bars.

• To make drinking extra naughty, don’t forget the Dicky Straws. Or if you prefer, there are these drink stirrers that help put the cock back in cocktail!

• Get some Bachelorette Party Plates, Bachelorette Party Napkins and penis-shaped Pecker Partyware Utensils for serving your cake and other treats.

• Oh, and about that cake. For extra fun, get the Pecker Cake Pan. Are you sensing a theme here?


scavenger huntGags & Games

A bachelorette party can sometimes end up like a childhood game of Truth or Dare, except with booze, and much naughtier results.

Help break the ice with Dare to Do it Activity Cards. There are 52 different imaginative dares, sure to keep the party interesting. If truth is more your style (or if your guests aren’t already BFFs) try breaking the ice with a classic: I’ve Never.

Or, if you really want to cause a scene, try the Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt and let your guests compete to see who can rack up the most outrageous accomplishments in one night.

If you’d like to try something that requires a bit more motor skill, there’s always Mr. Party Pecker Strap-On Ring Toss, a XXX variation on ring toss that will get your guests on their feet and giggling. We think it would make a great drinking game.

And, just in case you don’t meet any willing men during your night on the town, bring along the Inflatable John Doll. He’ll attract lots of attention, but won’t try to chat you on Facebook the next day. Simply deflate him until the next party! If the bachelorette digs women, there’s also the Inflatable Judy Doll. But don’t you think it would be nice to buy the bride a lapdance too?

Gifts for the Bride to Be

A bachelorette party isn’t just her last night as a single lady. It can also be an opportunity to send her off with the right gear to have a happy married sex life. Here are some ideas for gifts that will make her honeymoon extra special.

• Games. From classic sexy dice to teasing tips, games are a great way for a couple to try something new. We love Let’s Play Doctor for some fun with role play.

IOU Sex Coupons. These are fun little books filled with coupons that can be redeemed for sexual favors. This bedroom currency will keep the newlyweds coming long after they’ve come down the aisle.

• Toys & Things. There are so many great toys for couples, but the best one hands down is the We-Vibe 4, an awesome body-safe silicone vibrator designed to be worn during intercourse. If sex toys are a bit too intimate, there are always romantic bedroom supplies like the Jimmyjane Afterglow Massage Candles. These are made of natural plant oils, and burn at a lower temperature than wax. They’re perfect for drizzling on the skin and giving an erotic massage.

• Books. The guest of honor has a long life of exploring sex with her partner. Nina Hartley’s Guide to Total Sex is the definitive manual for a whole range of sexual activities, written by one of the best sex educators in the world.

The Winners Of Our Fun Factory Duke Giveaway

0

by thepleasurechest

We didn’t get too many entries in our contest to win the Fun Factory Duke, but the ones we got were very detailed. While an apparently large part of our readership seems intimidated by the Duke’s unique design, those who did participate in the contest, seemed eager to be, uh, entered.

The winner, chosen at random, from among a dozen entries is Ryan from New York City! Ryan describes himself as a bisexual ex-Mormon, who was inducted into the pleasures of prostate play by a patient partner. Here’s his account of his first experience:

“At first it was a bit strange but then I could feel this crazy energy building…as I got closer to orgasm it became more and more intense..just when I thought I was going to blow, I didn’t..building, building then BAM!*!@@$** fireworks, stars, lightning, angels singing, sheet tearing WOW! The most amazing and long lasting orgasm I’ve ever experienced in my life. At the risk of over-share (if we’re not there already haha) I don’t shoot much further than my stomach/chest but this time (from the foot of the bed) I managed to hit the wall above the headboard with almost every shot. All of this without EVER touching my penis. I was completely exhausted afterwards. I wouldn’t have believed it if it didn’t happen to me. Amazing!”

It sounds like the Duke will fit nicely into Ryan’s, uh, repertoire! And, since he mentioned it, we just want to assure Ryan and the rest of our readers that it’s impossible to over-share with us. We love all the juicy details. Otherwise, we’d be working at a Starbucks or something.

The runner up prize goes to our favorite entry, submitted by Plastic Robot, also of New York City. Where the Tin Man needed a heart to feel whole, Plastic Robot just needs a Duke to fill his hole. We didn’t realize robots even had anuses, much less prostates, until we read this amazing testimonial.

“I have known for some time that an important part of me is missing. I have had some upgrades to my endoskeleton and even to my programming, this year, but still that feeling lingered. When I laid my eyes upon the beautiful matte silicone of this unit, there was a sensation in my circuits that told me this was the perfect fit. I feel certain that installation of the Fun Factory Duke would complete my assimilation to a fully functional pleasure-bot and I am sure that activation of this unit would compel me to sing the praises of Pleasure Chest, without even requiring autotune. Thank You for your kind consideration.”

Congratulations, robot friend. You win the $20 Pleasure Chest gift card. That’s not enough credit for a Duke, but it should keep you in lube for the next few months. Robot pro tip: Don’t use silicone lube on your sexy silicone skin. Malfunction!

Thanks to everyone who participated and over-shared!

Put Up Your Dukes! Win Fun Factory’s Unique Prostate Toy.

13

by thepleasurechest

“Healthy, lusty sex is wonderful.” – John Wayne (The Duke)

Hey fellas, are you looking for the right toy to experience P-spot joy? Whether you’re a butt beginner or an advanced anal player, there’s no ifs, ands or butts about it– you’ll wanna give the Fun Factory Duke a try.

At first glance, the Duke doesn’t look like your typical butt plug or prostate stimulator. That’s because of its unique shape, designed with an extra bulge that cradles the prostate and offers a fuller feeling than other butt toys.

As our staff reviewer Mike described it:

“The wrap around shape of this toy gives a strong prostate massage with the one side hitting the perineum and the inserted side resting directly on it. I felt the back and forth pulsation of both sides, and it was awesome. That extra part fills up your ass making it feel like you have a lot more going on up there than your typical prostate massager. My orgasm was intense and lasted longer than normal.”

Fun Factory has also made this toy of its usual high quality silicone, so it’s soft, body safe and easy to wash. Best of all, the Duke vibrates! It’s got a powerful vibe with 3 speeds and 8 different pulse patterns. It charges up with Fun Factory’s unique magnetic charger (kinda like the one on newfangled Macbooks).

Wanna Duke it out? Well, we’re giving one of these bad boys away to one lucky reader.

The Contest

Tell us why you want The Duke! Simply post a comment on this here blog, explaining why the Duke is the perfect fit for you or your partner’s bum. Be creative. Be explicit. Tell us about your anal adventures and aspirations. Female-bodied folks are also welcome to play. The Duke is an equal opportunity toy. You don’t need to use your real name, but please supply an email address so we can contact you.
