40th Anniversary Celebrations in New York

1

by thepleasurechest

40 years ago this month, Duane Colglazier and Bill Rifkin opened a waterbed store at the busy corner of 7th Avenue South and 10th Street in the West Village.  The main flo0r of the shop was only 47″ wide and 12′ long. One customer described it as a split-level closet. They quickly added items like mood lighting, cockrings and handcuffs, before deciding to become a full fledged sex shop. The Pleasure Chest was born!

The original location is now a sushi restaurant, but our current New York store is just next door. We don’t carry waterbeds anymore, but we have expanded to offer products to meet nearly everyone’s needs and a roster of free educational workshops to support a diverse population. So, this month we’re celebrating “The Big 4-Oh” in style. Check out our complete lineup of free events and workshops through September!

Sex, Play & Intimacy Over 50

Our lust and desire may change over time but that doesn’t mean that our needs for sex and intimacy go away. Getting older only means getting better.

Come share your experiences and learn how to keep getting it on into the golden years. Whether you’re married, single, divorced or widowed, this workshop pertains to you. We’ll cover anatomy and overcoming various social stereotypes, taboos around intimacy, sex and desire.

I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, great site!
