by thepleasurechest

UPDATE: Congrautlations to Nicole W. who was randomly chosen to win the Lelo Mona 2. Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and shared with us!

Have you met Lelo’s Mona 2?

Like her older sister (who we’ll call “Mona 1″), she’s an elegant silicone “pleasure object” with full-bodied curves perfect for pleasing your G-Spot.

She’s also rechargeable and offers 6 stimulation modes at varying levels of strength. With her intuitive controls, it’s easy to explore and find the right setting for you.

This Mona is 100% stronger  than her predecessor, providing enough power to satisfy those who crave the most intense vibration. She’s also waterproof, making her an ideal bathing companion.

Want to get your hands on a Mona 2?

Post a comment below telling us what kind of vibration you enjoy. Like it low and thuddy or high and buzzy? Do you need a little or lot? Let us know.

On Friday, October 26th, we’ll pick one reader at random to win the Mona 2.

Good luck!

This Sunday is Fisting Day!

1

by thepleasurechest

Join us this Sunday, October 21st in solemn observance of Fisting Day!

What’s Fisting Day, you ask? It’s a global event created by queer porn icons Jiz Lee and Courtney Trouble to promote acceptance of vaginal and anal fisting. As they explain on the official Tumblr:

“Fisting Day began not only as a celebration, but a call for awareness – this sex act is banned and censored in most forms of adult entertainment, and that fear is reflected outside of the sex industry as well. We believe that sex-positive education, exposure, information, and discussion is an easy cure for this fist-phobia!”

We totally support this worthy goal, and want to lend a helping hand. To support Fisting Day, we’ll be offering 20% off your entire purchase on Sunday, October 21st.

If you’re coming into one our retail stores, simply mention “Fisting Day” to get 20% off your purchase. If ordering online, type fistingday into the coupon # box during checkout.

Need some pointers? Here’s our handy guide.

A Hand in the Bush is the ultimate, um, “handbook” on the fine art of vaginal fisting. It’s filled with practical information on how to get started. And it’s been approved by three fisting-friendly physicians.

The Oxballs Fist Plug is super realistic and made of soft, body-safe silicone. It’s got a nice wide base that’ll keep it snug in your butt.

When only a famous fist will do, try Belladonna’s Bitch Fist. This unique dildo is made from an exact replica of porn star Belladonna’s forearm and fist.

Whether you’re a first timer or an old hand, it’s a good rule of the thumb to use plenty of lube. And J-Lube is hands down the best lube for anal fisting. Simply mix a little bit of water with the J-Lube powder for a slippery good time. One bottle lasts a long, long, time.

If you plan on playing safe, we strongly recommend a pair of gloves. Unless you’re into medical play (and there’s nothing wrong with that), we recommend these fashionable black latex gloves.

If you want to watch vaginal fisting, we highly recommend the Crash Pad series, especially the kinky installment called “Rope Burn.”

Speaking of Crash Pad, they’ve got a great tutorial on their blog. Check out “Vaginal Fisting Basics”.
