Condoms & Porn- What do you think?

0

by thepleasurechest

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation last week filed a complaint against Larry Flynt, claiming that Hustler’s practice of requiring unprotected sex in porn shoots is a violation of worker safety.  AHF wants Hustler to follow the lead of the gay porn industry and Wicked Pictures and make condoms mandatory. We want to know what you think! Take our poll.

Bill O’ Reilly is into Doin’ “it” Live!

0

by thepleasurechest

Pugnacious pundit and noted loofah enthusiast Bill O’ Reilly fancies himself an anti-porn crusader and defender of traditional values. This morning, however, the Boston Phoenix published a column revealing that while a grad student at Boston University in 1974, O’ Reilly penned a lengthy, and very sympathetic interview with Gerard Damiano.  The legendary director of Deep Throat was in Boston to promote the release of his second feature Devil in Miss Jones and O’ Reilly took Damiano out to lunch, to talk about the porn business, Linda Lovelace and Hollywood.

This is not the first time that O’ Reilly’s fixation on porn has gotten attention. His 1998 novel Those Who Trespass contains some steamy dialogue, including this line: “Say baby, put down that pipe and get my pipe up.” You can even hear the author read his steamy prose in these audiobook clips generously hosted by the Village Voice. We look forward to the Fox News host excoriating  his youthful self for being a smut peddler on the next episode of The Factor. (Well, actually we don’t.) Instead we imagine things look a little more like this around O’ Reilly’s studio today.

Porn stars play D&D!

by thepleasurechest

Get ready for a total nerdgasm. Online gaming magazine The Escapist has launched a new webseries called I Hit it With My Axe. The show documents an ongoing game of Dungeons & Dragons between a group of porn stars, strippers and their punk rock dungeon master. That’s a lot of charisma points. The players include Kimberly Kane, Mandy Morbid and Satine Phoenix. If you’ve ever wanted to see Sasha Grey roll a 20 sided die, this is the show for you. Via Videogum.

Anal August: Amanda’s Review of Fun Factory’s Bootie

0

by thepleasurechest

Well, the toy Bootie, not their actual backside.

Anal pleasure ahoy!

At first I was skeptical about this way too appropriately-named butt plug. You see, I’ve been burned (not literally, ew) by petite sized butt plugs before. A lot of them seem better engineered for flying out of your ass at terrifying speeds than staying in there and bringing the pleasure. Bootie is different. The tapered tip made it easy to slide in, even without an assistant, and once inside it really stayed put! I walked around, I brushed my teeth, and I even sat down, which is when the flatness of the base really came in handy. It nestles nicely between the cheeks and you would barely know it was there… except for the awesome internal sensations! I’ll admit it, I am a bit of an anal slut, so that helped, but the sweet part was I could feel it stimulating my G-spot through my anal wall. I’m sorry I just said anal wall, it doesn’t sound very sexy, but I couldn’t think of another way to say it. Bootie was also very comfortable to wear during sex and the curve guided the dick nicely toward my G-spot.

Recap: Loved the feel (and easy cleanup) of the smooth silicone, easy to get in, stayed in, felt amazing in. All in all a perfect butt plug for beginners and anyone else who likes mild to moderate anal sensations.

Pornography Fridays

1

by thepleasurechest

I chose to title this new feature, “Pornography Fridays,” because it has such a nice ring to it. Don’t you think?

Anyway, one Friday a month I’m going to write about an adult movie, either in-stock at The Pleasure Chest, upcoming, or newsworthy.

Last week we were all hit hard by the death of Rue McClanahan, an icon for so many reasons, but her later work in The Golden Girls was inspiring to women, older women, and sex positive people of all walks of life. Today the terms MILF, GILF, and cougar are pretty much household words, for better or worse, but Rue’s Golden Girls character Blanche Devereaux was a woman who loved sex unapologetically, and hearing an older woman talk about her sex life that way on tv was certainly ahead of its time.

Golden Girls: An All MILF XXX Parody was actually released in May, not timely with Rue McClanahans death (thankfully – that would have been somewhat awkward), and we’ll be getting it in our stores soon. I’m not super excited about the “turn a lesbian to cock” angle, but the trailer actually looks like the film could be quite humorous and entertaining.

Lastly, let’s look at a great moment from the actual show, where the Girls watch porn.

This show was just so, so special! RIP Rue, Bea, and Estelle.

Not phallic: Fabulous! Not a vagina: Still feels fine(a)!

0

by thepleasurechest

Yesterday I read an article on MSNBC about a sex shop in Bahrain. It was really fascinating to read about how this little shop is thriving in the Middle East. According to the store’s owner, sex toys are permitted in Islamic law between married couples as long as they don’t replicate “sensitive parts of the body” (I’m going to go ahead and assume she means genitals) but things like vibrating rings are ok. She says she hasn’t really had any trouble from the people and the government (a few things get tangled in customs), and it’s certainly refreshing to hear about sexuality and pleasure discussed openly, in any country.

Of course, we love our Shafts and Fleshlights like crazy here at The Pleasure Chest, but there are a lot of great toys that are more… discreet.

The newest of which are Tenga products from Japan, which look like bottles of lotion or shampoo but house a remarkably realistic and sensual-feeling masturbation sleeve, pre-lubed and ready to go. Sticking my finger in one of those things is right up there with waiting in line at Coachella on my “Times I Wish I Had a Penis” list.

Then there’s the new Better Than Chocolate vibrator by Nomi Tang. This luxury vibe feels smooth and silky in the hand, with an ergonomic shape (in your face, carpal tunnel!) and easy-to-use touch-sensitive controls. That’s right, the speeds go up and down and even lock with a swipe of your finger. It’s an iPad for your clit! Love.

Also, while I fully advocate sex toys for non-coupled (and non-married) people, it should be noted that both of these toys can be fun for two as well. Give your hand-jobs a hand with the Tenga sleeves, or nestle Better Than Chocolate between two bodies for simultaneous sensations. Fun for everyone!

Does the G-spot exist?

0

by thepleasurechest

I know, I know. For some of us, this is like asking whether water is wet, while for others it’s a LOST-esque mystery involving space, time, and a bunch of guys wandering, seemingly aimlessly, around your “tropical island.”

A recent study done at a British university concluded, however, that the G-spot does not exist.

We here at The Pleasure Chest, being huge fans of sexual science, would like to encourage women to do a study of their own, preferably involving a sexy state of mind, lots of lube, and a nicely curved pair of fingers or one of our favorite G-spot toys. The G-Ki, Pure Wand, and Gigi come to mind.

The truth is, no two bodies are the same, and the G-spot is not a magic elevator button to the penthouse-level of pleasure. But to deny its very existence felt like a slap in the face, not only to sex educators everywhere, but to women and their partners who sing (or more likely scream) its praises. Cant we all just get it on get along? You say tomato, I say tom-ah-toe, you say “toe-curling orgasm,” I say “meh, I like it better in the butt.” There’s room for everyone to weigh-in on the G-spot issue.

We want to hear from you!
