The exhibit runs October 24th-November 7th and will highlight the work of three local artists whose completely different visual approaches engage the topics of bodies, identity, sex, sexuality, and desire:

Cristy C. Road is a Brooklyn-based Cuban-American artist and writer. Through her unconventional way of seeing the world, Road thrives to testify the beauty of the imperfect. Her work explores the themes of feminism, Queer culture, and social justice. Road has released a number of works including her illustrated works INDESTRUCTIBLE and BAD HABITS, and SPIT AND PASSION, a coming-out memoir, among others.

Cristy Road Clit Ride

Emily North, also known as em16, is a multi-media artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She works in drawing, painting, performance, and video. Emily’s work has been exhibited internationally in film festivals and galleries, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, Fountain Art Fair, Artists Space, Longwood Gallery, San Franciso Arts Commission, Queens Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Borough Hall.

Emily North Gay Beach Series

Jesse Harold is a visual artist who works with ink and paper to create partial interior views of queer bodies, letting those images be exploratory spaces for radical transformations, such as rupture, mutation, death, metamorphosis, and ecstasy. Jesse lives in Queens, and has worked as a painter, videographer, and comic book artist, in addition to collaborations with other performers.

Jesse Harold

The opening reception will be held at the Pleasure Chest on the Upper East Side (1150 2nd Ave, NYC, 10065) from 6-9pm on Saturday, October 24th and is free and open to the public.

We Talk to the Huffington Post about Sex Toys for Menopausal Women

0

by Chelsea

We talked to the Huffington Post about the best sex toys for menopausal women, and we had a lot to say!

Check out the article by Ann Brenoff HERE and read about our fav picks below!

1. Magic Wand Rechargeable

M

H/T to our friends at the Pleasure Chest in Los Angeles for flagging this update to the classic Magic Wand. This baby packs just as much punch as the original but eliminates the need to be tethered to a plug. The Magic Wand Rechargeable actually can be used both cordless and plugged in (a kind of “plug-and-play,” if you will.) For the uninitiated, the original Magic Wand, around since 1968, is the gold standard of vibrators and the ability to use it in locations with no handy electrical socket has already won over many loyalists. We join the chorus though of wishing it was waterproof. As an aside, we love this wink-wink on the Magic Wand’s website: “Whether you are looking to soothe an aching shoulder or want a more ‘personal’ massage experience, the Magic Wand massager is the proven answer that has earned Americans’ trust and rave reviews for years.” Amen to that. $135 for the rechargable.

2. Palm Power Massager

palmpower

Competition can always be found chomping at the heels of genius, and vibrators are no exception to this rule. The Palm Power is a small, powerful cordless massager that rivals the power of the Magic Wand. We play no favorites. Check both out.

3. Lelo Smart Wand

L

If it’s really waterproof you want, check this out. We’d hate losing readers to electrocution. A word of caution though about thrashing about in slippery showers and tubs: Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries among seniors, says the National Council on Aging. Be safe out there.

4. Ami Kegel Ball Set

A

We all know that we shouldn’t stop exercising as we get older, right? Well, that’s also true when it comes to your vaginal muscles. Building up muscle strength with kegel balls helps maintain the elasticity of the vaginal wall which, in turn, helps strengthen orgasms. $60.

5. Eroscillator

E

OK, so vibrators aren’t your thing. Consider an Eroscillator which, rather than vibrating, moves back and forth ever so slightly while still providing a powerful sensation. A distinction without a difference? Perhaps. $200.

6. Oasis Vibrating Dilators

oasisdilators

Dilators, not dildos, you sillyhead. These are slim-sized and especially for women who are going through menopause — a time when they are likely experiencing some tightening of the hooha. Sex is no fun if it hurts, you feel me?

And while perhaps not sex toys per se, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the vaginal lubes out there designed to do the trick when your body doesn’t cooperate.

U

Sliquid Satin is designed as a daily vaginal moisturizer and our Pleasure Chest pals say it is one of the best water-based lubes out there. And there is Uberlube, a silicone lubricant enriched with vitamin E. As a bonus, it comes in a classy glass bottle with a convenient pump top.

New Product Review: The Womanizer

0

by Chelsea

Everyone is talking about the Womanizer, the revolutionary new clitoral stimulator.

womanizer-vibrator-black

Our very own sex educator/employee extraordinaire Larkin took the Womanizer for a test drive. Check out her review below:

Ok, so here’s the thing… when I first saw the Womanizer, I died. It’s pretty hilarious looking and the name is gross and offensive.

pegsex

I was fairly certain its gentle vibration wouldn’t do much for me, because I’m used to super high-powered vibration (Magic Wand user here). I also really didn’t want to like it, because I’m so put off by the aesthetics of the thing (a friend described it as looking like Peg Bundy got drunk and designed a breast pump) that I didn’t really want it floating around in my toy box.

pegfinger

Out of morbid curiosity, I was actually quite eager to use the toy. I put on a porn vid and got the Womanizer ready for use, shaking my head at the ridiculousness of the design as I pulled it out of its case. Annnnnd I came in like, 5 minutes…

pegfan

Something about the combination of the gentle suction paired with the light vibration is EXTREMELY effective. There is no other toy that can do what this toy does. It’s like receiving a really light, tickly kind of oral sex where it feels so amazing you want to grind your snatch into their face, but you can’t because then they can’t maintain the gentle suction. But with this toy, you can grind as hard as you’d like, and the suction remains steady. Yeah. I used that thing like, 3 times that first night.

pegflirt

The Womanizer is like a douchy guy at the bar at last call that you take home because you just really need to get it in, and you figure you don’t have to tell your friends about him, but then he ends up ROCKING YOUR FUCKING WORLD with his sex skills!!!

It’s now one of my go-to toys, and I feel mildly ashamed of that. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. It would absolutely be 5 if I was just rating on performance, but I have to take a star off for the awful name and the ridiculous appearance.
