Obama Condoms. Turn On or Buzz Off?

2

by thepleasurechest

Don’t have a cow, but it looks like our readers actually wanna see The Simpsons porn parody. In last week’s poll, 55% of voters got sprung for Springfield smut, while the remaining 45% simply wanted Homer to keep it in his pants. We’re sure the movie got a boost from its creator Lee Roy Myers who tweeted the poll to his followers. Mr. Myers’ politicking is fine by us, and the people have most definitely spoken. That’s democracy. D’oh! You can expect to see The Simpsons porn parody in our DVD section in the near future.

Speaking of democracy, this week’s contestant on Turn On of Buzz Off is the Obama Condom. That’s right, cause nothing quite sets the mood for sexytime like a heated political argument.

Consisting of a Crown condom wrapped in a cardboard sleeve, the Obama Condom comes in three different designs, each bearing its own slogan:

“Hope is a Not a Form of Protection.”

“The Ultimate Stimulus Package.”

“Use With Good Judgment.”

We hope the condoms aren’t quite as stale as the jokes. Obama Condoms are made by a company called Practice Safe Policy, which, to be fair, also makes condoms poking fun at Sarah Palin and John McCain. When it comes to adult products inspired by President Obama, these condoms are relatively tame. A company called Head O State already makes an Obama dildo, while in China, you can get an Obama love doll.

Even though products like this are common, we suspect that some of you won’t be voting for the Obama Condom. If you saw a lover whip one of these out, would you stage a filibuster? Whether you lean left in the bedroom or are simply bipartisan curious, it’s time to go the polls. The Obama Condom. Turn On or Buzz Off?

After Hours with the Club Vibe

1

by thepleasurechest

Jenae, our intrepid Sex Specialist, popped the Club Vibe in her pants and hit the dance floor. Here’s the buzz.

I might be a club-goer. I might be that girl who happens to be at every party you thought you couldn’t get on the list for. My friends call me Lesbian Google, because I can find any good club night within a 15 mile radius.

Yup. I’m that girl. The girl who is always ready for a club night and a good time. The Club Vibe is “Pleasure Remixed” and I got a chance to remix some pleasure one night at a Chicago hotspot. The club I chose is open till 4am and known for attracting local oddities so I knew I wouldn’t look out of place with a wire sticking out of my pants. Yes, the Club Vibe is wired from bullet to remote. So it’s not a discreet as some might like.

The remote is actually a little receiver that picks up ambient noise from whatever space you’re in. If you are wearing the receiver box like a pager, be aware your clothes will be creating most of the shuffle noise you are “receiving” in your pants. I decided to go for the gusto and not care if anyone saw the wire poking out of my dress. I stealthily inserted the little bullet into the panty gusset and turned it on.  In the bathroom the club vibe picked up on the bass right away. There was a steady “boom boom boom” that got me really excited to join in on the fun!

I walked outside and got a HUGE jolt. The Club Vibe definitely picks up on all the noise around you and does not have discernible taste. Once it hears the nightlife, it’s got to boogie and that boogie will burn your clit off!  My advice? Steer clear of the clubs with this vibe but definitely take it out to any smaller bar with a nice back beat and lots of strangers conversing. You will definitely not be bored with the background chatter!

MLK, Jr. on the Importance of Family Planning

1

by thepleasurechest

For the Negro, therefore, intelligent guides of family planning are a profoundly important ingredient in his quest for security and a decent life. There are mountainous obstacles still separating Negroes from a normal existence. Yet one element in stabilizing his life would be an understanding of and easy access to the means to develop a family related in size to his community environment and to the income potential he can command.- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Most of us are familiar with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s activism for civil rights, against war, and for the struggle of poor people. But did you know that he also supported family planning clinics? In 1966, King was given Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award, named for that organization’s founder. King believed that having access to birth control and family planning was essential to self determination and economic justice. The entire text of King’s acceptance speech can be found here.

Simpsons Porn Parody. Turn On or Buzz Off?

5

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we asked you to weigh in on the Zombi Art Dildo from the line of horror movie-inspired toys from Necronomicox. The overwhelming majority of our readers had a grave response. Nearly 27% of you declared the Zombi a “Yawn of the Dead” while a decisive 48% hammered the final nail into its coffin. To the handful of necrophiles and horror fans who dug the undead dildo, have fun, but don’t forget, this Zombi doesn’t want you for your brains!

In case there are still traces of your innocence left, we submit this week’s contestant: the Simpsons porn parody.

If you follow the adult industry, you know that parodies are very popular. From Pirates of the Carribean and Avatar, to Batman and Sex & The City, our pop culture past and present is being plundered for prurient profit. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

And nothing is sacred. Not even the cartoons of our youth. If you think Simpsons porn is a special kind of wrong, ask how it differs from the hardcore Flintstones or the upcoming Justice League porn parody. In fact, Simpsons adult fanfic and illustrated Simpsons porn has been with us for a long time. (Google it, if you must.)

Still, are we ready to see the beloved characters of the longest running series in the history of American TV engaging in hardcore sex? The already infamous trailer from Larry Flynt Productions touts: “You’ve never seen sex this yellow.” Some tagline, eh? Round here, we are uncurious about yellow sex. How about you, dear reader? The Simpsons porn parody. Turn On or Buzz Off?

Gaypocalypse Now!

4

by thepleasurechest

We had a little fun circulating this news story on our Facebook and Twitter feeds today:

Pat Robertson: Snow Is God’s Way of Punishing Americans Planning To Drive To Do Something Gay

Rev. Pat Robertson sparked controversy in today’s broadcast of his “700 Club” program when he claimed that God created the blizzard currently battering the Northeast “to punish Americans who were planning to drive to do something gay.”

Explaining his theory, Robertson said, “Because of the bad road conditions the Almighty has made, any gay activities that people were planning on doing will have to be postponed by a day or two.” Additionally, he argued, God shut down major airports in the New York area “so that people who were hoping to fly to do something of a gay nature would have to take a train or a bus, so it might be days before the gay thing they were going to do could occur.”

As for the millions of straight people in New York City who were also grounded by the bad weather, the televangelist said, “I think God probably wonders: If these people are really straight, then what are they doing in New York?”

If you guessed that this is a joke, you’re right! The article is a prank by Andy Borowitz– but it had us fooled for a hot second, because it isn’t hard to imagine Robertson saying something this stupid. You might recall he once warned that if Disneyworld continued to host Gay Days, “The Happiest Place on Earth” might be punished with earthquakes, or even a meteor (!) This is truly one of those cases where satire is so believable, it could easily pass for truth. Check out this priceless collection of the right Reverend’s wrongest statements of all time.

Speaking of natural disasters, perhaps you’ve heard about the mysterious news reports of birds falling from the sky all over the world. Well, according to crackpot religious prophet Cindy Jacobs, we can blame it on the gays.

Sadly, this one isn’t a prank. But at least it gave Anderson Cooper a chance to issue this smackdown on CNN.

As long as there are haters like Robertson and Jacobs blaming everything on gays, there will be a place for the pranksters and the satirists. We don’t know what God you believe in (if any), but one thing we know for sure is “God Hates Signs!” Now, go out there and have lots of gay sex. It’s 68 degrees in West Hollywood, and we want to make a snowman. So, get busy!

Hey Sailor!

1

by thepleasurechest

Mary from our LA store smuggled a Sailor Softskin Packer home in her pants, and filed this report.

"I always imagine myself with a small cock."

I always imagine myself with a small cock. It suits my body type, and when you don’t pack everyday a little goes a long way. With that said, the packer I’ve had for years was always a little too small, though it was better than the next enormous size up. The Sailor 4″ is really just the right size for me. It also has the added feature of a hard inner core with a softer outside, giving it a very realistic feel. The Sailor Softskin Packer looks great in my pants and has a nice weighty bounce to it. The only drawback is that the color is a bit too orange making it not so convincing when I whip it out in broad daylight. Not a big issue as I prefer to show it off in poor lighting situations anyways.

Zombi Art Dildo. Turn On or Buzz Off?

4

by thepleasurechest

Well, it was a close one, but last week’s contestant on Turn On or Buzz Off, the cock-sucking, one-eyed alien Maneater went down (so to speak) in defeat. 47% of voters were licking their chops, while 53% refused to bite. Sorry Maneater, the kitchen is closed. We’re sure you’ll find someone else to eat.

Speaking of monsters with a taste for human flesh, let’s talk zombies! From movies and TV to modern lit and gay porn, zombies are all the rage. And now, apparently, they’ve inspired their very own sex toy.

Introducing the Zombi Art Dildo from Necronomicox, a line of horror movie-inspired sex toys! Whether you’re a necrophile or simply a horror movie geek, you gotta love ad copy like this:

All it wants is your warm human flesh. A bloated, rotting, pustulant abomination. Choose from a variety of festering colours.

Size: ~7″ Long total and 1.5″ Across with clit stimulating arteries, and textured rotting penis head… so grotesque as to be amazing!

Each Zombi is made of body-safe, platinum silicone, and hand-painted “to give it personality and gruesome reality.”  Yay, just what we’ve always wanted in the bedroom: gruesome reality! So now, we turn to you, fearless reader. Can you imagine spending a hot night of the living dead with this dildo? The Zombi. Turn On or Buzz Off?

While you vote, please enjoy our special zombie-themed playlist!
