Comedy & Crotchless Panties: Performance Anxiety’s 4th Anniversary

0

by Kate M.

Performance Anxiety 4th Anniversary

On Tuesday, Performance Anxiety, the comedy night hosted by Eli Olsberg and Libby Thomas at The Pleasure Chest Los Angeles, celebrated its fourth anniversary with a sold-out show. Fans of the show packed the house, finding places to stand in the back and sit on the floor once the seats were filled. T.J. Miller and Pete Holmes, who headlined Performance Anxiety’s very first show in 2011, returned to headline the anniversary show. Special guests Joe Mande and Eddie Pepitone made appearances as well.

The anniversary audience enjoyed a better class of free booze — Blue Moon, Stella Artois, and even wine — and some lucky folks went home with giveaways, including Pleasure Chest gift cards and products. T.J. Miller also gave away Silicon Valley swag and a signed  bottle that was a prop from the film Extract.

It’s an exciting moment for comedy, particularly in L.A. Vulture recently identified this as the “second comedy boom” in an article in which Performance Anxiety is featured. We’ve been delighted to play host to the renaissance for the last four years, particularly since the renaissance gives us beer and makes us laugh.

Disappointingly Realistic Erotica:
Butt Stuff

0

by Kate M.

tina belcher butt

Marjorie had known the whole time that she would have a huge dick.

When she had seen this particular one sitting on the shelf at the sex shop, it all she could do not to stuff it down her pants right there in front of everyone. She loved its girth, its pronounced head, and its realistic veins — and somehow its medium brown skin tone matched hers perfectly, like it was made especially for her. She loved it even more when she strapped it on at home and admired herself in front of the full length mirror. With that heavy porn star dick hanging between her legs, she felt powerful. Fearless. Virile.

Frank got home while she was still gazing at her own reflection. He actually dropped his briefcase in shock, staring at her.

“Like what you see, baby?” she purred at him.

It took him a moment to find his voice.

“Um, hon? What part of, ‘I’ve never done this before, so get something beginner-friendly’ was unclear to you?”

***

Patricia shivered as Chloe’s tongue circled her asshole, the younger woman’s small hands lifting and spreading Patricia’s cheeks. Why had she been so hesitant to try something casual — to “hook up” as Chloe called it — Patricia wondered as she pushed her hips toward her nubile partner, silently begging for more. Sure, Chloe was a tad immature, but that didn’t mean that they couldn’t have fun together. Patricia’s rapidly beating heart and ragged breath were proof of that.

Suddenly, Chloe pulled away, frowning, her septum piercing adorably askew.

“I really can’t get into this when you’re making me use a dental dam,” she whined.

Oh, yes. That’s why.

***

“I’ve spent all night trying to keep from staring at your ass,” Rex breathed into my ear. “I can’t wait to curl my fingers into it.”

I knew it. From dinner at the new raw food place to queer bingo at Cheer Up Charlies, my date’s eyes had wandered, and their intentions had been clear. Unfortunately…

“Yeah, that raw food did a number on me. So maybe just… hold that thought until next time.”

***

“Don’t worry, spit works just fine.”

***

In the darkened chapel of their small Christian college, Bo pounded his barely-legal girlfriend’s tight asshole with his throbbing, barely-legal cock. Mary Elizabeth writhed under him, her modest skirt pulled up around her face and her hand furiously working her love button. He felt her anus grip his shaft as she bellowed in orgasm, throwing her head back Pietà-style. Her pleasure spurred his own, and he spilled his seed with a guttural moan. They had gotten so good at this over the last couple of months, able to send each other into overwhelming spirals of pleasure. Gosh knows they’d had plenty of practice.

He collapsed on top of her and they lay together in the lube-slick pew. Mary Elizabeth softly kissed his ear and whispered, “I’m so glad anal doesn’t count.”

8 Sex Toys from Art History

0

by Kate M.

Ever wondered what your taste in art says about which sex toys you’ll love? Well, maybe you should. We’ve paired some of our favorite toys with art movements throughout history (okay, mostly 20th century). Take a look, and see which speak to your sensibilities. You might even learn something.

 

arts and crafts collar flora arts and crafts
Arts and Crafts Movement

In the late nineteenth century, the Arts and Crafts movement emerged in opposition to industrialism and the mass production of goods, focusing instead on craftsmanship and design. The Collar Flora is made by an artisan leatherworker, and it boasts a floral design similar to those favored by the movement, which drew inspiration from medieval, romantic, and folk art.

 

classicism goodfella classicism
Classicism
Using Greek and Roman art as its model of perfection, art of the Italian Renaissance emphasized symmetry and attention to form and detail.  The Vixskin Goodfella, a realistic dildo made of the highest quality dual-density silicone, would have made Michelangelo envious (and intrigued).

 

cubism lube cubescubism
Cubism

A hugely influential movement in the early 1900s, Cubist artwork sought to depict its subjects from multiple visual perspectives at once. Sliquid’s Lip Lickers Lube Cube Sampler… is cube-shaped. (Sorry.)

 

 dada kickassdada
Dada

Dada, an “anti-art” movement, developed in protest to World War I. Rooted in anti-capitalist, anti-colonialist politics, Dada sought to upend bourgeois artistic ideals like logic and beauty, instead embracing chaos, irrationality, irreverence, and offensiveness. If anyone in the sex industry comes close to that, it’s Oxballs. Their Kickass Plug is one among many over-the-top ultra-fetishy designs that regularly elicit gasps from customers.

 

 expressionismexpressionism 2
Expressionism

Expressionism aimed to evoke powerful emotions and ideas, deliberately showing its subjects from a subjective viewpoint and distorting familiar, realistic images. The 7 Wheel Pinwheel is also meant to evoke a powerful emotion — namely, fear — by taking a medical tool (the Wartenberg wheel, dragged gently and painlessly over the skin to test nerve sensitivity) and giving it six extra wheels, making it look like a torture device.

 

fauvism amorino fauvism
Fauvism

Embracing bright, bold colors and a less-representational style, Fauvism is Impressionism‘s fun cousin. In an industry that loves pastels and realistic dildos, the designers at Fun Factory are les fauves (“the wild beasts”) of the world of sex toys. In particular, the Fun Factory Amorino is colorful, quirky, and decidedly not-dick-shaped, for someone who wants a rabbit-style vibrator unlike any other.

 

futurism eroscillator futurism

Futurism
Originating in early 20th century Italy, Futurism glorified technology and modernity. The Eroscillator 2, which oscillates instead of vibrating (progress! the triumph of industry!) could have been lifted straight from a Futurist design.

minimalism bullet minimalism

Minimalism
Enough said.
