The Winners of our Pick Your Part Contest

by thepleasurechest

Joque gets the gold!

We asked you last week to tell us which SpareParts harness you most wanted to strap on. The vast majority of you preferred the Joque, for its jockstrap-style design which leaves your ass free for fun. We picked one Joque devotee at random yesterday. And the winner is…Trystero in  Chicago. Trystero writes:

Ohhhh, Joque!!!!! While pegging, I like to keep my bits free…you know, just in case someone else stops by and we all decide to see if I can take as well as give (of course, all while I give). It would all be for science, of course.”

Well, that’s ambitious! We hope you enjoy your new Joque!

Only a handful of you preferred the classic G-string cut of the Theo, which made the odds for winning even higher. And the lucky reader is…Seth in Atlanta. About the Theo, Seth writes:

 I like to hard pack in public occasionally and to me it seems this harness would give less lines under clothing. But the better point, to me anyway, is with its g-string style, it would rub my bits quite nicely when I’m thrusting…giving me an added sensation! Total win for me and my partner!

Theo takes the silver!

Indeed a total win! We hope that you and your partner enjoy adding Theo to your strap-on play.

We had many funny and sexy submissions for this contest. Our favorite entry came from Michelle in New Brunswick, NJ. Michelle writes:

“As a lesbian just starting to experiment with sex with gay men, I’d love the jock-strap style harness so I can play around with my gender identity a little while taking a hunky queer man from behind. As a very feminine woman, I sometimes think the only way I could get a gay man is to dress in drag, and this harness would certainly help me do that.”

While Michelle didn’t win the Joque, we’re sending her a $20 gift card to encourage her experiments!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our contest and thank you to SpareParts for letting us share the strap-on love with our readers!

But when it comes to strapping it on, there’s still debate about which look is the hottest. Some of us prefer the Joque, a jock strap style design that lifts your ass and leaves it free for play. Others swear by the Theo, which has the cut of a classic g-string.

Win a Joque or a Theo

Which one do you like? Leave a comment here and tell us which of the two you’d wear and why.

On Monday, October 24th, we’ll give away one of each to a randomly selected reader.  As an added reward to those of you strapping on your thinking caps, we’ll also award a $20 gift card to our favorite answer.

by thepleasurechest

We received a lot of great entries in our “Submit a Slogan” contest for the SpareParts La Palma. We challenged readers to come up with some catchy copy for this handy harness and you delivered!

Our favorite slogan was submitted by Donald in Cincinnati, Ohio. His suggested tagline:

“Can I get a High Five on this? Or How about a low 6″?”

Down and dirty and very clever. A high five and a free La Palma to Donald!

We also picked a runner up winner. Thanks to Melanie in Los Angeles, who sent us the following copy, tweaked for the coming holidays:

“Looking for that perfect ‘Hole-a-day’ gift? Use this mitten on your kitten! Purrfect stocking stuffer, or just to stuff her ;) Too soon for Xmas? Put one on each hand for a real Trick or Treat!!

Nicely played. Melanie. We’re sending a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card your way.

If you didn’t win, don’t worry, we’ll have more SpareParts giveaways throughout the month. Now, how about a big hand for all those who participated?

Submit a Handy Slogan& Win a SpareParts La Palma

by thepleasurechest

Need a helping hand? Our friends at SpareParts have designed a unique harness called La Palma. This comfy nylon and neoprene glove gives you the freedom to penetrate your partner by hand! La Palma comes with an assortment of rings, allowing it to adapt to most dildos with a base. You can also insert the included wireless bullets to make it vibrate. This means La Palma doubles as a massage glove (make sure to take the dildo out first!) This glove is also a great fit for those with physical limitations, or those who don’t like traditional strap-on play.

Win a La Palma

Calling all amateur Don Drapers! Think you’ve got a gift for writing copy?

Our current favorite slogan for La Palma is “You’ll have them coming out of the palm of your hand.”  Submit your own slogan in the comments section below. If we like yours better, you win a La Palma. We’ll pick a winner on Friday morning. It’s that simple! So, can you give us a hand?
