Update: Congratulations to Pamela who was randomly chosen to win the Fun Factory Ocean! Keep an eye on our blog and your local Pleasure Chest Twitter page (LA, NY,CH) for more Fun Factory giveaways! 

Set your eyes on the sensual curves of the Fun Factory Ocean. This velvety soft, silicone beauty offers dual external and internal stimulation. The wavy design is ideal for simultaneous G-Spot and clitoral exploration. It’s also fun for your butt– use it to pleasure your P-Spot while buzzing your perineum.

Explore the intuitive controls to surf through three pulse patterns at four sensational speeds. The aptly-named Ocean is also totally waterproof, so you can take it in the tub. And when you need more juice, simply attach the unique magnetic charger. Easy breezy.

How to Win a Fun Factory Ocean

Want to take a dip in this Ocean? Simply post a comment below waving hello. On Wednesday, July 17th, we’ll pick one reader at random to win a Fun Factory Ocean of their very own.

Get Lucky (Updated)

Update: Durex claims they had nothing to do with these. 

A few weeks ago, we showed you some of our favorite condom designs. And now, we have a new favorite rubber: the Daft Punk condom.

The French dance duo partnered with Durex to make these promotional prophylactics hyping their ridiculously catchy single “Get Lucky.” (Push “play” up above to hear it just one more time.)

No word yet on whether the public will be able to get their hands on these condoms. So far, Diplo is one of the lucky few.

That’s our friend and occasional guest educator Jessica Drake in a wonderful profile on CNN.com (!) Read about how Drake got involved in porn, her feelings about California’s Measure B and the stigma associated with being an adult film star on CNN’s site. Also, be sure to check out the behind-the-scenes photo gallery shot by Chris McPherson.
