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

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!

Sex Specialists, Exposed

0

by thepleasurechest

Once again I have hastily titled one of these blogs without realizing it implies nudity of some kind. Oh dear.

Anyway, what I mean by “exposed” is that we have a new friend at The Pleasure Chest office HQ (LA), a Flip Slide HD video camera! We kind of like the idea of using this for evil, but we will be using it for good. Luckily, in our line of work, “good” is still pretty naughty.

Look forward to fun and informative videos of Sex Specialists being, well, special, and hopefully some face time with workshop teachers and such. Lady and kid not included.

Also, if you’re interested in exposing yourself, our Show Us Your Pleasure Chest contest is still in full-effect for one more week! Send entries to amanda@thepleasurechest.com through Monday for a chance to win $50, $75, or $100 from The Pleasure Chest to bulk up your toy chest.

Warming up with Madison Young

0

by thepleasurechest

Those of us lucky enough to meet the kinky girl next door herself at Wednesday’s workshop in LA were treated to a wonderful surprise – blow-job warm-ups!

Madison taught us, among other fabulous, kinky things, great techniques for warming your body (and face) up to give amazing head. We did shoulder rolls, taffy chews, darting tongue, motorboat, and yawning. It probably looked pretty weird, but everyone was doing it. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that some people *cough*me*cough* got home and put their skills to work, ending up with a totally-not-sore jaw and a totally happy partner.

Try it for yourself this weekend, then on Monday when you’re sitting at your desk letting out a  big old yawn, just tell you’re boss you’re multi-tasking. Duh.

Sex with the in-crowd

0

by thepleasurechest

Okay, not exactly, but sort of. You see, this month all three Pleasure Chest locations are sitting at the cool kids’ table with some of our favorite sex celebs and most popular workshops!

Tomorrow night in Los Angeles, adult film and fetish star Madison Young makes her PC debut teaching Fellatio and Fetishism. We’re super-excited about this fresh take on one of our most popular workshop subjects. She’ll talk about how to incorporate latex, bondage, smoking blow jobs, deep throating, sensation play, toys, and anal play for a long, luxurious oral worshipping of the cock.

On Monday, May 24th in Chicago, sex ed superstar Midori is teaching her workshop on how to please your man with blow-jobs and more,  Joy Stick Secrets, which has thrilled audiences in all three of our stores. She’ll be there most of the week, with How to Eat a Peach: Cunnilingus with Midori on Tuesday, and Rosy Cheeks: Spanking with Midori on Wednesday.

And of course, the New York staff of Sex Specialists are known never to disappoint. They’ll be teaching everyone’s favorite penis-pleasing workshop Blow-jobs and Beyond on Tuesday, May 25th.

Get there early! These FREE workshops are always in-demand and seating is limited.

Attractive? Yes. Crowd-pleasing? Definitely. Popular? Always. But don’t call us The Plastics…. unless you mean silicone.

All we are saying is give sex a hand

1

by thepleasurechest

Hand sex, digital manipulation, finger banging… however you say it, it sounds less than sexy, but anyone who’s ever had sex with someone who was, let’s just say “less than proficient” with their fingers knows how truly important knowing how to use one’s hands can be. You could go to bed with someone incredibly hot, but if they play your pussy like a broken banjo or give a hand job that leaves a first degree burn, you probably won’t be inviting them for another round.

No two people are the same, of course,and while some bodies might like circular movements and others might like to be strummed, still other folks will want both moves and then some. With your fingers, it’s easier to gauge your partner’s responses to different types of stimulation. What they don’t like, what they like, and what makes them lose it completely with pleasure may register on their face, but when you’re using your hands you’ll know what kind of touches and strokes brought them there, which can only improve your standard sex and oral sex skills as well. No complaints there, right?

Tonight in Los Angeles, famed sex educator Reid Mihalko will teach us The Ins and Outs of Hand Sex. Check it out if you can, it’s FREE! And get here early, his classes fill up fast!

Show us your Pleasure Chest and win prizes!

by thepleasurechest

Wait, that sounded kind of pervy… Let me clarify.

May is National Masturbation Month, and though we’re stocked year-round with toys that are fun for one, we never pass up a chance to celebrate sex.

This May, we want to know what’s in your personal Pleasure Chest! Whether it’s a shoe box full of vibes or a suitcase stuffed with strap-ons, hidden under your bed or on display in your den, we want to see what you’ve got. Send pictures of your Pleasure Chest to Amanda@thepleasurechest.com for a chance to win up to a $100 gift card to shop at TPC, with $75 and $50 second and third prizes. Become our friend and “Like” our Los Angeles store, New York store, or Chicago store on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for even more up-to-the-minute updates and chances to win orgasm goodies from The Pleasure Chest!

My “Pleasure Chest” is currently an overflowing dresser drawer, so I wish I could win the prize and get myself a Toibocks or one of the For Your Nymphomation cases (now in all three of our retail locations and coming soon online!), but then I’d probably need 4 or 5. Don’t judge me, I’m a professional ;-)

As if the actual show isn’t pretty much a porn…

by thepleasurechest

The official trailer for a True Blood porn parody, efficiently titled Tru: A XXX Parody, is finally here! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a big fan of True Blood, things that are sexy and things that are hilarious, so this seems right up my alley. How about Eric’s wig in this film? It’s really something special.

Looks like this will be released sometime in November, so stay tuned.
