Hosted by Lenora Claire, Luke Nero and Andrés Rigal, Gloryhole will offer a peek behind the red curtain, giving guests a chance to mix and mingle with the sexual glitterati. Equal parts tease and sleaze, Gloryhole will let the curious see what goes on after hours at one of Los Angeles’ most storied locations, on the very same floor where Joan Jett once shopped for leather gear and 70s gay porn movies were made.

Ye Olde Dirty Pictures

When you look at this bathing-suited woman, don’t you feel scandalized? No? Not a little bit? Hm.

Annette Kellerman, the professional swimmer pictured above, was arrested for indecency in 1907 for her oh-so-revealing swimwear. If you, unlike early 20th century beach-goers, are not easily shocked by the sight of an ankle, you might enjoy this collection of images that were once considered terribly unseemly. Fetch the smelling salts!

What Are You Dancing To? Tell Us and Win an Aneros Tempo (Updated 8/30)

29

by thepleasurechest

tempo

Update: Congratulations to Rigo, who was randomly chosen to win an Aneros Tempo! Thanks to everyone who entered. Please check out each other’s entries and put together an awesome summer playlist of your own! 

To wrap up Anal August, we’re giving away an Aneros Tempo!

Do boring butt plugs have you singing the blues? The Aneros Tempo will get you back into the rhythm of anal play. Just get your pelvic floor muscles moving, and your butt will slide the toy back and forth between the strategically-placed knobs on either side. Whether you’re standing in the shower, climbing a long flight of stairs, or moving your hips during partner sex, it’s easy to make the Tempo work for you. Its sleek, slim shape is ideal for longer term wear, and its stainless steel body warms up or cools down with water. In short, the Tempo will rock you.

How to Win an Aneros Tempo

Want to win? Just leave a comment below telling us which song has been getting your butt out of your seat and onto the dance floor this summer. (It doesn’t have to be a new song, or even a real dance floor: we frequently dance in our living rooms, our place of work, and – with limited success – our cars.)

A winner will be chosen at random at 5pm on Friday, August 30th, PDT. Be sure to leave an email address, so that we can contact you if you win. Good luck!

US residents only.

Marilyn Chambers, Revisited

0

by thepleasurechest

marilyn chambers and ron jeremy

In 1972, Marilyn Chambers starred in the iconic porn film Behind the Green Door - scandalizing a public that knew her as the face of Ivory Snow detergent – and secured her status as one of the major porn stars of the day. Now, apparently, she is largely forgotten. (That’s what we’re told, anyway. We’re confused by the idea that people don’t know who Marilyn Chambers was.) Recently, The Daily Beast featured a touching profile of Chambers’ life after porn. (NSFW for one racy picture and because you might not want your coworkers to see you cry.)
