This Seventies Cosplay, Oh My Gosh.

by Kate M.

cosplay 70s

Do you cosplay? If you don’t you’re about to want to. If you do, you’ll probably want to step up your game. Our new BFF Ron Miller just posted many 70′s cosplay pictures, from his personal collection, to io9. They are glorious (and mostly NSFW).

If you’ll excuse us, we have to go track down some wings, scales, and sequined undergarments.

You Are Getting Sexy… Very Sexy

0

by thepleasurechest

Do you get off on risk? Do you miss the thrill of a teenage quickie before your partner’s parents got home (forcing you to jump out a window to avoid being caught)? Do you long for the illicit excitement of a secret affair?

Maybe you do, but you live alone. You’re happily monogamous, or happily openly non-monogamous. Your rational mind doesn’t relish the idea of getting arrested for public indecency, even if the prospect kick-starts your libido.

Here’s the trick: you don’t have to risk getting caught as long as you believe that you might get caught. Don’t rely on role play; download Gotcha, the new hypnosis app that heightens your sense of paranoia and trains you to feel a kick of anxiety every time you hear a noise nearby. You’ll be covering your tracks before you know it!

Gotcha, for a forbidden tryst, every time.

 

Side effects may include: dizziness, melancholy, misanthropy, political extremism, a slow but inevitable descent into madness, the desire to howl at storms, a baseball bat next to every doorway, distrust of anything in powdered form, over-identification with the human characters in zombie movies.

According to TSER, Transgender Day of Visibility is “a day to show your support for the trans community. It aims to bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe while fighting cissexism and transphobia by spreading knowledge of the trans community. Unlike Transgender Day of Remembrance, this is not a day for mourning: this is a day to be empowered and get the recognition we deserve!”

A Vibe That Makes You Smarter!

We’re proud to announce that soon we’ll be carrying LELO’s innovative new DEXTRÜS vibrator! Responding to research showing that left-handed people are 71% more sexually satisfied that right-handers, LELO set out to correct the imbalance. The result is a vibrator that actually makes you smarter!

According to LELO’s press release:

Every time pressure is applied to DEXTRÜS, its Right-Squeeze™ technology causes whisper-quiet vibrations to travel through the left-arm and stimulate the right-side of the brain, blocking distractions and encouraging smarter, more creative thought.

…Following the ground-breaking revelations that left-handers are more sexually satisfied, LELO suggests right-handers continually squeeze DEXTRÜS with their left-hand during love-making. Every squeeze prompts the touch sensors to emit the same series of powerful vibration patterns that can be applied all over the body, while at the same time allowing users to access a left-hander’s state of mind.

Soon, we won’t be the only business that keep sex toys in the office!

Find out more about the DEXTRÜS here.

Update: In case you haven’t guessed already, LELO was kidding; The DEXTRÜS is not real. You can read more about the elaborate prank here
