Chains of Love: The Oxballs Link Reviewed

0

by thepleasurechest

For some folks, an ordinary cockring just won’t do. Meet the Oxballs Link, a silicone cockring that looks just like a steel chain. We sent Sex Specialist Manny home with the Link to test its mettle. Here’s his report…

The Oxballs Link is made from platinum grade silicone and can be used with water, silicone and oil-based lubricant. It measures 1 3/8″ in diameter and can stretch to well over 3″. The 7/8″ width makes it a pretty thick cockring. There’s also a slight heftiness to it, providing added stimulation on the penis. This cockring is designed to look like a chain with links on it, including slight imperfections and faux welds to give it a more realistic look.

"The longer I wear it, the more pliable and softer it becomes as the silicone retains body heat."

The Link has a unique design and it looks hot. It’s super stretchy, so I have no trouble slipping it on. It doesn’t squeeze hard– just enough to give me that tight feeling I’m looking for. The longer I wear it, the more pliable and softer it becomes as the silicone retains body heat

I’ve also tried wearing the Link without lube and was surprised that I was not irritated by the silicone rubbing on my skin. It actually stayed in place and didn’t move or slide around, like some other cockrings. It also makes a fabulous ballstretcher– I like the fact that since it’s more stretchy it’s easier to wrap around my balls without too much trouble. Another advantage is that The Link can be stacked along with other rings to add weight and make ball stretching more intense. I love my Link!

Dona: A Ritual for the Senses

54

by thepleasurechest

UPDATE: Congratulations to Vanae of Culver City, CA for winning this contest.

This month we’re pleased to introduce you to Dona, a line of sensual bath and body products. Each of the items in the Dona line is created with naturally-derived ingredients from renewable resources. Dona products are eco-friendly, biodegradable and made without animal testing.

Best of all, each Dona product comes infused with one of three proven aphrodisiacs. There’s acai for stamina, blue lotus for heightened awareness and tranquility, and goji berry for increased testosterone and sex drive.

Each product can be seen as a step in a sensual ritual, designed to awaken the senses and nurture the body and mind. For the bath, Dona offers bath salts and body polish, both derived from the Dead Sea. There’s a shave gel for grooming intimate areas, and a body mist for moisturizing. If you’re planning a romantic evening, they’ve got sensual, soy-based massage candles and a more traditional massage oil. There are faux rose petals to create a path or set the stage, and a kissable body drizzle for sweeter foreplay.

Win a Dona Sampler

Want to win a sampler of Dona products? Perhaps you want to try them for yourself. Or win them for the lucky woman on your Mother’s Day gift list. Simply tell us why you’re excited to try Dona in the comments below. On Friday, we’ll pick one lucky reader to receive an assortment of goodies. Good luck!

Megan Andelloux On Sex & DisabilityThis Sunday in LA!

0

by thepleasurechest

  • Are you or someone you love living with a disability?
  • Do you have a chronic illness that’s affecting your sex life?
  • Do you experience challenges like pelvic pain, erectile dysfunction or limited mobility?

As we go through life, it’s normal to experience changes within our bodies and our sexual functioning. Many of us get stuck longing for times past, when our bodies were more free and responsive.

This Sunday at 4pm at our West Hollywood store, we offer a unique opportunity for those living with disability or chronic illness to explore solutions for achieving and maintaining a happy sex life.

The Pleasure Chest is pleased to welcome sex educator Megan Andelloux for Sexy Times with (dis)Abilities & Chronic Illnesses, a free workshop open to individuals, partners and couples.

In this class, she’ll examine the sexual challenges often faced when dealing with disability or illness, while gaining tools to enhance the changes our bodies have made. Through discussion and demonstration, we’ll learn how to create exciting new sexual possibilities and explore ways of being sexual despite the difficulties that may confront us. This session will touch on many issues, but will focus specifically on cancer, diabetes, pelvic pain, and problems of limited mobility. The workshop is totally free of charge and open to all adults.

Megan Andelloux is the founder and director of The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health. She is certified as a sexuality educator through The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists and works as a board-certified sexologist through The American College of Sexologists. She has worked full-time in the field of sexuality education for more than fourteen years.
