Ten Tips for Successful Valentine’s Shopping

0

Planning on shopping at a sex shop for V-day? Do yourself a favor with these tips:

1. Know what generally works for your partner/friend/date. We can’t help you find the perfect gift unless you can give us a clue. Bonus: ask them to go “window shopping” with you online or in person, and then you can surprise them with something that’s sure to please.

3. Shop early, especially if you want to ask lots of questions. Our busiest days start the weekend before Valentines Day. Get in before that to have a relaxed shopping experience.

4. Get something for you to enjoy, too. Whether you have an intimate partner or not, everyone needs a little something special to treat themselves.

5. Have absolutely no idea what to get them? A gift card is perfect. Sex toys are not “one size fits all”, and a gift card can help make sure that they get what they really want.

6. Lube is a perfect addition to every toy purchase; even if you don’t usually use it, it can add a sexy bit of extra slippery fun! Throw in a toy cleaner for quick cleanup (which is especially helpful if your celebration include a hotel room…hint hint!).

7. If you buy a rechargeable toy, charge it up for the recommended amount of time before your sweetie opens the box, so you can enjoy it as soon as they like. If you buy a battery operated toy, pick up extra batteries and have them handy!

8. Indulge in a little something different – if you’re a whips-and-chains person, try an edible body oil, and vice versa. Sometimes the novelty can help us shake up the celebration and drive it to a whole new level.

9. Don’t forget – the packaging is just as important! Wrap up their gift in a sexy pair of undies, or a new jock strap, or the hankie color that they flag! Pop the cock ring over the neck of a bottle of champagne. Get creative and make the presentation part of the fun.

10. Buy three times the safer sex supplies than you think you need. Because nobody wants to be unprepared…especially with a three day weekend!

A Downton Abbey Porn Parody? Heavens!

downton abbey

We were deeply happy to discover that Down on Abby, the porn parody of everyone’s favorite soap opera set in an English manor house, is in the works. From Time:

The porn version of Julian Fellowes’ award winning drama is set at the illustrious estate of Bottomley Manor owned by * ahem * Lord and Lady Grabhem who live there with their stepdaughters Abby and Fanny and, naturally, a manservant called Master Bates.

What can we expect? Erotic silver-polishing? Vintage underclothes? Homoerotic tension in the trenches? There are so many possibilities.

The Relationship Photos of Our Dreams

We have a big crush on photographer Yijun Liao‘s Experimental Relationship series, in which she and her boyfriend pose, often together, with her in more traditionally masculine stances and him in traditionally feminine poses. The result is tender, wry, and not just a little sexy.

From her artist statement:

As a woman brought up in China, I used to think I could only love someone who is older and more mature than me, who can be my protector and mentor. Then I met my current boyfriend, Moro, who is 5 years younger than me, I felt that whole concept of relationships changed, all the way around. I became the person who has more authority and power. One of my male friends even questioned how I could choose a boyfriend the way a man would choose a girlfriend. And I thought, “Damn right. That’s exactly what I’m doing, and why not!”

Resolved to Do Your Kegels This Year?

1

by thepleasurechest

ami

We keep hearing from folks whose new year’s resolutions include doing their Kegel exercises. Kegels work out the PC muscle, which runs from the pubic bone to the tailbone and is intimately connected with orgasm. A stronger PC muscle means stronger orgasms, awesome muscle control (tightening or relaxing the vagina), better bladder control, and an easier time during childbirth.

Let’s backtrack for a moment: stronger orgasms. Dayenu.

If you’re one of the many folks who has resolved to stick to a vaginal workout routine this year, we’d like to direct you to the Pussy Fitness article from our how-to blog, for some helpful tips. Good luck!
