The Pleasure Chest is proud to be featured in this documentary and we encourage anyone curious about kink to check it out. Watch a teaser clip above, and then tune in to OWN on Tuesday at 10pm/9 central to see “Shades of Kink.”

UPDATE: Congratulations to Kristen who was randomly chosen to win the exclusive pink Ami. Stay tuned for another Je Joue giveaway next week! 

Many of you are already familiar with the joys and benefits of Kegel exercises. Fifty Shades of Grey has made them even more popular, boosting sales of Kegel balls in all of our stores.

These exercises are great for developing vaginal strength while making sex more pleasurable for women and their partners.  They also have added health benefits for pregnant and menopausal woman. Kegel balls can be worn discreetly throughout the day, or for a quick workout. With repeated use, you can expect tighter muscles and stronger, more intense orgasms.

One of our favorite tools for curious Kegelers is the Ami from Je Joue. This elegant set contains three silicone balls of increasing size and weight for building up your strength over time. A staff member from our New York store experimented with all three, and declared the medium-sized #2 her “new best friend.” Je Joue’s site describes each ball in detail on their site.

In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, Je Joue is giving our readers a chance to win a special new pink Ami! It’s the one in the picture at the top of this post.
