Buns of Steel: The Aneros Tempo Reviewed

2

by thepleasurechest

We gave Sex Specialist Mike a Tempo and told him to stick it where the sun don’t shine. Here’s his illuminating review…

The sleek and slender shape of the Tempo makes it so easy for insertion and 100% comfortable when left inside. The shape of the handle is ideal for when I’m walking, sitting, or standing because it’s contoured to fit between the butt cheeks, but still large enough to not get sucked up into the ass. The Tempo couldn’t possibly feel any better, because the stainless steel makes it heavy. The weight puts a light pressure on my prostate, causing an awesome sensation. Another great feature of the stainless steel is the fact that I can use water based, silicone or oil based lubes when putting it in. The stainless steel is non-porous, so it’s also easy to clean with some soap and water.

"The Tempo couldn't possibly feel any better."

Last, but far from least, is the fact that the Tempo gives me a great workout. Having it inside for hours is easy and fun. My asshole is constantly squeezing on the Tempo, which makes Kegel exercises come more naturally. Even when I take it out, my muscles are still tightening up more often. It’s pretty cool.

This would also be a great toy for a woman who wants to feel the sensation of double penetration while having sex. The Tempo is so sleek that it’s not intimidating to have it in your ass. I highly recommend this toy for anyone who wants to experience some fun and easy ass play with zero drama.

Your Anal August Playlist

2

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we introduced our readers to the Aneros Tempo, a stainless steel buttplug designed to get your butt moving.  In this spirit, we asked you to submit your favorite butt-shaking songs and back door anthems, for a chance to win a Tempo of your own. After tallying all the entries, we selected a  winner at random, and the owner of the lucky rump is Casey of Gainesville, FL. Congratulations Casey, we hope that the Tempo fills your butt with joy.

We also awarded Aneros gift bags to our two favorite entries. Alexander from Brooklyn suggested “Do You Take It in the Ass?” by The Wet Spots.

Bravo Alexander. You’ve just given us the perfect song to break the ice on first dates! Enjoy your Aneros gift bag.

Our other runner up winner is Yolanda from Brooklyn who tipped us to this amazing video of “Twerk” by Lady.

This video is mesmerizing. Thanks Yolanda! We hope you enjoy your Aneros gift bag.

Thanks also to the many others who participated in this contest. We made an epic playlist of butt-themed songs below. Enjoy!

Keep your eyes open for another music-filled Aneros giveaway later this week. We can’t tell you the specifics yet, but you might want to prepare yourself by getting familiar with Turntable.fm.

Shake Your Booty & Win a Tempo

59

by thepleasurechest

The new anal toy from Aneros ain’t called the Tempo for nothin’. This shiny, stainless steel butt plug has strategically placed knobs designed to trigger the natural rhythms of your inner and outer sphincter. In other words, it makes your booty dance! If you don’t believe us, you’ll just have to try one. We’re giving away a free Tempo to one lucky reader next Monday afternoon.

Tell Us Your Best Butt Songs & Win a Tempo

If you want play, simply post a comment here telling us the name of your favorite booty-shaking song or songs. Anything will do, but since we’re celebrating Anal August, we’d especially love to hear about any songs which reference the rump in their title or lyrics (“My Humps,” “Shake Your Booty”).

On Monday, August 22nd at noon PST, we’ll pick one entry at random to win the Tempo. We’ll also award an Aneros gift bag to each of the two entries we liked the best. (And by the way, did you know that you can get a free gift bag with the purchase of ANY Aneros product during Anal August?)

So, please help us build the best Anal August playlist ever. Enter now!

Ambiguously Gay Muppets, Sexy Superheroes & Cuddling with John Stamos

2

by thepleasurechest

During all the fuss over Anal August, we’ve been neglecting our weekly link roundup. Here’s a curated recap of our feed from the past few weeks.

  • With gay marriage legal in New York, many couples are finally tying the knot. This NYT slideshow of gay weddings made us very happy.

Just friends.

  • While gay activists continue to push for nationwide marriage equality, some cheeky folks started a campaign to let Sesame Street‘s Bert and Ernie get married. In response to the controversy, Sesame Street issued a statement asserting that Bert and Ernie are just friends, and furthermore, simply puppets! We say, leave the Muppets alone. But we’d love to see a campaign to get C-3PO to make an honest droid out of R2-D2.
  • Speaking of Star Wars, if you’ve got the hots for Luke Skywalker, here’s a must read on The do’s & dont’s of dating Mark Hamill.
  • What if male superheroes in comic books were posed like Wonder Woman? The result would probably look something like this.  Sexy!
  • Another sexy superhero: DallasVoice.com unmasked Zimmer Barnes, a gay crimefighter whose New York Initiative fights homophobia in the Big Apple.

  • Want to tighten your abs and strengthen your quads? Nah, us neither. But we could watch this 80s workout video all day.
  • Vice asked: Is anyone out there missing a bag of sex toys? 

  • We don’t want to kill your Anal August buzz, but Queerty had this reminder that sodomy is still illegal in 18 states.
  • “Right now, in one of the largest cities in the country, a six-foot-wide pair of white panties dominates one of the city’s most visible public spaces.” So begins this pithy piece of art criticism about a ginormous statue of Marilyn Monroe recently, um, erected in Chicago’s Pioneer Court.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H

  • Postmodern Barney found these awesome vintage men’s underwear ads.
  • The Seattle Weekly profiled a blind man who was prosecuted for illegally downloading porn.
  • Vice published Richard Kern’s unusual photos of naked young women and their prescription meds.
  • Gizmodo reported on the Viberect,  a new FDA-approved male vibrator, which resembles a set of salad tongs. Tossing a salad will never be the same again.
  • An anonymous writer in New York  recounted a week of hot sex with her boyfriend. Their sexual marathon included a trip to the New York branch of The Pleasure Chest, which she called “a candy store of fucking.”

  • This woman helpfully defined 30 paraphilias in 5 minutes. Collect ‘em all.
  • Scientists reported on new brain scan data which maps womens’ orgasmic response, and found to no one’s surprise, that nipples are an erogenous zone.
  • Researchers in the Netherlands claimed that our romantic partners are not as hot as we think. They theorized that such “positive illusions” help keep relationships stable.
  • A survey from the University of Rhode Island said that four out of five teenagers are sexting. In our day, we had to write dirty messages on Post-It notes.
  • Another study of American teens found that boys who masturbate are more likely to practice safe sex. Wait, there are boys who don’t masturbate?
  • A study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior claimed that men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to cheat on their partners.
  • A reader at Psychology Today asked “Who Invented the Blowjob?” The answer: Bonobos or barnacles, probably. (h/t Violet Blue)

Balls in your court.

  • The New York Observer noted a recent uptick in testicle-related litigation in American courtrooms.

Trick or treat? Hips or lips?

  • A reader at Dangerous Minds dug up this unlikely Al Pacino leatherdaddy costume from the notorious 1980 thriller Cruising.
  • John Stamos taught us how to cuddle.

  • Finally, Channel 6 Action News reported on a local man with too many cats.

The Winners of Our Aneros Tempo Giveaway

1

by thepleasurechest

We got over 30 entries in our contest for the Tempo, a beautiful new stainless steel butt toy from Aneros. The randomly selected winner is Nathan from Chicago. Congratulations Nathan, we hope that your Anal August is filled with prostate pleasure.

Aneros sent us these nifty gift bags containing a set of the Peridise Unisex Anal PC Toys, a Marskman Lube Shooter, a polyester carrying bag and an Aneros tote. It’s a $70 value!

Since there were so many other good entries, we’ve awarded these bags as runner up prizes to a couple of our favorite answers.

First, there was this entry from Lady Henrietta from Los Angeles, who described her first anal experience with her current boyfriend, while at an anime convention.

While in the hotel room we had a bit to drink and one thing leads to another and we initiate intimacy. Now I was dressed as Catwoman in a skin tight black body suit and corset. And he was wearing my Lolita-cat dress; complete with white frilly stockings, red bows, and kitty tail. This man is ripped and if he flexed his muscles hard enough he would have ripped my dress open. So this man is no sissy in real life or in bed!

I had him tied up and spread eagled on the bed when I did my first female on male ass play session with him. It was very hot and arousing for me feeling him squirm and moan when I inserted my tongue, fingers, mini vibrator and my glass plug inside him. (I always come prepared at these conventions!)

Hot! We hope you and your partner can nerd out with the goodies in the gift bag.

Next up was Alissia from North Hollywood who said:

Well, as noted in the oral sex class, the anus has the most nerves second only to the clit (sorry guys, the penis has fewer than either), so why not explore that. My GF and I enjoy ass play a lot, so this could be interesting.

We’re suckers for students who pay attention in class, so the gift bag goes to Alissia!

If you didn’t win, don’t fret. We’ll be having more giveaways throughout the month. If the Aneros gift bag arouses you, don’t forget that we’re giving them away with the purchase of any Aneros product during Anal August. That includes online orders too!

Win a Tempo
