Turn On or Buzz Off? Bzzzbuddies

1

by thepleasurechest

One of the best parts of working at The Pleasure Chest is the opportunity to experience the great wide, weird world of human sexuality. The sex toy industry is exploding, and it seems like there are hundreds of new products each year, many of them seeking to serve customers whose tastes run far outside of the mainstream.

We can’t resist sharing some of these toys with you, and we want to know if you’d consider buying them. So today we introduce a new feature on the blog: Turn On or Buzz Off? The idea is simple. We highlight an unusual product, and you tell us what you think.

Today’s toy for consideration is the line of Bzzzbuddies. Meet Pandy, Shivers, Frisky & Paws, the adorable critters from this kawaii menagerie of “personal massagers” (vibrators). The Bzzzbuddies are waterproof, phthalate-free, plastic vibes, with four interchangeable tips. Each Bzzzbuddy has its own “story,” which is included on the back of the box. Here’s the 411 on Frisky, the pink pussycat of the Bzzzbuddy line:

Frisky is a curious little kitty cat. Everything in the world seems so new and exciting to her! Every day Frisky spends her time exploring and finding new things to pique her curiosity. Whether it’s something to play with or a new place to hide, Frisky loves to explore and experience her life to the fullest. It’s a wonderful time for Frisky because she knows that some day, she will be held, loved, and played with all day long.

Cute, right? It sounds like the blurb on the back of a children’s book! The Bzzzbuddies remind us of the popular Hello Kitty vibrator, but their marketing also seems like a good fit for those with age-play fantasies. In fact, they’d probably make a great gift for the babyfur on your Christmas list.

So now, we put it to you dear reader? What do you think of the Bzzzbuddies? Turn on? Or Buzz Off? Take our poll!

Rocker finds love at The Pleasure Chest

by thepleasurechest

We were, uh, “changing channels” the other night, when we stumbled upon a show called Married to Rock. Check out this brief inspirational clip about how Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens met his wife Josie.

As many of our customers know, The Pleasure Chest is an awesome place to meet the love of your life. Ironically, AOL Chicago thinks we’re also a great place to breakup. (We disagree. Tears are bad for business!)

Speaking of rockers who shop at The Pleasure Chest, please enjoy this classic photo of Joan Jett posing in front of our old digs in West Hollywood.

It’s a miracle! Pope endorses condoms*

0

by thepleasurechest

UPDATED: Pope says condoms OK for female and transsexual prostitutes too!

*For male prostitutes


It’s true! In an interview with a German journalist, Pope Benedict appeared to contradict the Vatican’s long-standing opposition to condoms.

“There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility.”

Benedict went on to say:

“(The church) of course does not regard it as a real or moral solution, but in this or that case, there can be nonetheless in the intention of reducing the risk of infection, a first step in a movement toward a different way, a more human way, of living sexuality…”

Though he doesn’t yet sound like Susie Bright (she’d make a great Pope!) we’re delighted to see the pontiff jump on the safer sex bandwagon. What next? Will the Vatican stop damning the dental dam and declare flavored-lube a sacrament? We can always dream!

The Pope says "Put a Crown on it!"

Benedict didn’t comment on the use of condoms to protect against pregnancy or to prevent the spread of other STIs. The Church has long encouraged abstinence or “natural family planning” for hetero couples.

So, you may wonder, are condoms an effective form of birth control and protection from STIs? Does the Pope wear a funny hat?

Lasso Lovin’

0

by thepleasurechest

“Oliver” from our LA store roped himself a Rascal Cocktie Set and filed this review:

The Rascal Cocktie Set comes with two stretchy rubber lasso-style rings with four beads for tightening and loosening them. I found the rings wonderfully flexible, durable, and versatile. The beads can create multiple rings out of one, for many uses- cock ring, shaft ring, ball separators, and any combination you can imagine. They’re comfortable to wear for short periods of time, and the stretchiness means they’re easy to put on and take off, even without moving the beads around too much.

One word of caution- don’t pull the beads too far towards the open end of the rubber material! I pulled one completely off just to see how easy it is to get back on, and the answer was simple- it’s impossible, at least for me. Cleanup is easy– just use a little liquid soap and water, and then let ‘em air dry.  Overall, this is a great cockring for first-timers and experienced players alike. Rope ‘em!

Tight assed Dutch protest “Buttplug Gnome”

0

by thepleasurechest


Dutch politician Geert Wilders has his panties in a bunch over a controversial statue of Santa Claus, created by LA conceptual artist Paul McCarthy. The LA Weekly reports:

The piece, funded by the Dutch government, is intended as a holiday tribute, and its official title is “Santa Claus.” Santa, or a gnome, holds a large, festive bell in one hand, and in the other what’s (perhaps) intended to be a Christmas tree. But the resemblance of the Tanenbaum to a certain kind of sex toy has prompted a populist renaming of the piece as “The Buttplug Gnome.”

We must admit that the resemblance is striking. 

(Please accept our apologies for the shameless plug.)
