Sex for the Polite

1

by thepleasurechest

manners

Ever wonder what Emily Post would say about your sexual exploits? Our readers have sexual etiquette suggestions (inspired by Sarah Sloane‘s excellent sexual etiquette article) that will make you the best-mannered partner you can be!

On Preparedness

“Practice basic hygiene: take a shower, brush your teeth and smell good before sex.”

“Abstain from eating beans and other flatulence-producing foods for 24 hours prior to sex. If caught off guard by gas, give your partner(s) fair warning.”

“Always have a few clean hand towels within reach for an easy clean up. Waiting until you’re in the moment/afterwards to find one makes for a good mood killer.”

“New relationship, new toys.”

“Always bring extra batteries.”

On Safety

“I like to bring more than one type of male condom, to let him choose his preference (although I’d prefer he already have his own condom of choice on-hand).”

“Be conscientious of your potential vegan lovers preference to animal testing/animal product free condoms, lube and leather alternative harnesses.”

“Always bring gloves (nitrile to accommodate latex sensitivity or allergy!) and ask about your partner’s/s’ comfort and preference with gloves.”

“Always ask your partner about condom material before it is time. Nothing like being told they react to latex when it is time to put it on.”

“Never ever re-use a condom!!!”

On Communication

“Don’t always expect your partner to be the one to initiate. Be proactive!”

“Ask first! Converse about what you each dig before going at it.”

“Be open to what your partner wants, and do not judge.”

“Always ask before doing anything new or potentially invasive.”

“Don’t mention someone’s ex or family members.”

“Discuss sleeping arrangements after threesomes prior to the actual threesome!”

On Doin’ It

“It’s okay to be a little selfish in the moment, but when the moment is over and you’ve gotten what you need, don’t forget there is another person to please.”

“No T.V.! (Unless it’s porn, that’s okay.)”

“After 5 spanks to the ass, switch cheeks.”

“Relax and enjoy the inherent hilarity of sex. Laugh about the squelching noise that can come from p-in-v sex. Take a breather and acknowledge the ridiculousness when someone’s limb hits the other in the face.

“Remember that the journey is the destination. Not all sex requires an orgasm, nor does an orgasm signal the end of play time.”

“Don’t overreact to a queef. They can’t be helped, damn!”

On Ending the Evening

“In the event that he has come on someone’s face, a true gentleman will assist in washing it off once the tryst has been concluded.”

“Offer your guest(s) a nice hot bath or shower after all of the action.”

“A dirty toy makes for a dirty user… clean up after yourself!”

“Always say thank you for the nice time, even if it wasn’t as nice as you wanted it to be.”

Where Do Vibrators Come From?

by thepleasurechest

crave vibes

With sex toy technology getting more and more advanced, most of us have no idea what goes into making our favorite high end, multi-function, rechargeable silicone vibrators. Luckily, Gizmodo took a tour of Crave, the San Francisco-based company responsible for the ultra-chic Duet vibe, and reported back to the rest of us.

duet vibe

As it turns out, the process of making a Duet vibrator is pretty straightforward to explain, if not to accomplish: pour silicone into a compression molder (which the folks at Crave call the “vibrator waffle maker,” since it basically works like one), assemble a lot of tiny bits of machine by hand, put it all together, and then turn a batch on en masse to see if they work. Simple, right? Sure, once you’ve designed a functional vibrator and have the technical expertise to build a motor.

Hey guys! Sarah Sloane, our Chicago store manager, was quoted in an excellent article about fisting from Ms. Fit.

“Stay away from the concept that it has to be a goal. A large part of the joy is getting there, even if you never arrive,” she advises, and goes on to offer a few practical tips for the fisting-curious. We recommend checking out the article and, if it piques your interest, reviewing the fisting primer on our how-to blog.

Want to Win a Meany?
Don’t be a Meanie!

by thepleasurechest

meany

Update: Congratulations to Anna, who won the Fun Factory Meany on Facebook! Thanks to everyone who entered. Keep an eye out for more giveaways soon!

We’re giving away a Fun Factory Meany Mini Vibe!

The Meany is an extra nice little vibe. Its soft silicone ridges are sure to please, and its powerful motor offers a selection of speeds and pulse patterns. Plus, its bright color makes it perfect for people who’d like a break from pink.

Want to win a Meany? Here’s how.

For this contest, we were inspired by our Chicago store manager Sarah Sloane’s blog post about “The Etiquette of the Screw.” In it, she outlines six rules for being a well-mannered sex partner. For instance:

2. Always bring a “host gift” of safer sex supplies. These can be arranged in a lovely basket, made into a centerpiece, or placed into a foil wrapped box to add charm and attractiveness to the gift. Not arriving with a gift of barriers is akin to showing up to dinner without any food to contribute – it’s rude, and it places the burden on your host, which shows a lack of courtesy on your part.

To win the Meany, make up your own rule of sexual etiquette and post it in the comments below. We’ll pick a winner at random on Friday, 2/21 at noon, PST.

U.S. residents only.

In a heart-melting move, L.A.’s Metro train service hosted speed dating today in several cars of its commuter trains. The cars were decorated with hearts, the employees wore heart antennae, and at least one Cupid was present. If you were having doubts about your faith in humanity, you might want to rethink them.

We couldn’t be more excited for our Valentine’s plans: the Love Temptation party at Hollywood’s lavish Moroccan-style lounge, Acabàr! We’ve contributed a $25 gift card and some sexy conversation-starters to every dinner guest.

Guests will savor a four-course feast by celebrated chef Octavio Becerra. Before or after the meal, they can head over to Acabàr’s lounge area for sensual entertainments by House of Kaya: burlesque dancers, living lamp girls, silk wing dance, and a snake dancer wrapped in a twelve foot albino python. On the way home, they can stop at The Pleasure Chest for toys and treats to make this Valentine’s Day memorable.

Acabàr is located at 1510 Stanley Ave at Sunset Blvd. The dinner is $125 per person, and seating is limited. Call 323-876-1400 or email reservations@acabarla-la.com to reserve a table.
