Fill a Dildo with Your Lover’s Ashes

0

by Kate M.

21-gram2

Now, you can keep having sex with your significant other for the rest of your life, even when they’ve passed on. Designer Mark Sturkenboom has created a “21 Grams” box designed to allow someone to recreate a romantic evening with a deceased lover. It contains a perfume bottle for the person’s signature scent, speakers for playing romantic music, and a glass dildo containing 21 grams of the person’s ashes. The box opens with a golden key that can be worn on a necklace, so that no one else can access your sexy memorial.

According to Sturkenboom’s website,

“21 Grams is not only a way to tempt a person to revive an
intimate night with her love again
but also displays an accusation against
the unavoidable passing of life.”

So… that exists now.

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.”

afterglow massage candle

The packaging and presentation make Jimmyjane candles look really special, but high-end, luxurious plant oils are what make these massage candles a point of light.

The oils in these candles feel amazing to work with and really moisturize the skin, plus the fragrances are sublime. More than a candle, it’s a massage.

Want to Win an Afterglow Massage Candle? Here’s how.

In the comments below, tell us about the most unusual thing that helps you relax. Giving your pillow a name and telling it your problems? Aggressively blowing bubbles in your glass of milk? We want to know.
