Can Google read your dirty mind?

0

by thepleasurechest

If you hadn’t noticed Google recently launched a search feature called Google Instant, which seems capable of reading your mind. That’s true, unless you have a dirty mind. As many people have noted, Google is censoring results that could lead you to porn. It seem that somewhere in the tangle of tubes and wires on Planet Google is a list of banned words and phrases. It’s not surprising to discover that bukkake and fudgepacker made the blacklist, but what about words like lesbian, latina, vulva, bisexual and adult? (Yes, the word “adult” is supposedly a gateway to porn!)

You'll never find the G-Spot on Google Instant.

Google claims that the blacklist is based on some top secret algorithm that identifies the most common porn searches. They also point out (accurately) that you can still do a traditional search for all of these banned terms– they’re just hidden in the real-time Google Instant search bar.

Searching for the "clitoris" may result in painful inflammation.

Fair enough. But a lot of the words on this list seem downright arbitrary. After a tip from Violet Blue’s blog, we took Google Instant out for a spin and discovered that Pleasure Chest and fellow sex toy merchants Babeland were both on the blacklist. Us? We’re downright wholesome, but we join a distinguished list of sex educators, porn stars, body parts and sex acts that are supposedly too hot for Google Instant. Hacker site 2600 is still building its master list. Find anything they missed? Search your dirty mind, and let ‘em know.

Two fingers up! We salute the Two Dildo.

0

by thepleasurechest

Our Chicago staff member Jenae slipped her fingers inside a Two Dildo and filed this report.

I love sex education. I keep on top of current sex related events the way Joanna Angel keeps on top of James Deen. Porn girls follow me on Twitter! So when I heard buzz around a brand new lesbian toy my pulse quickened.  See, I am also a glorified lover of the ladies. The only reason I know my way around a penis is because I may or may not watch entirely too much porn.

"I felt more connected to the experience of penetration than I do when playing with a phallic toy. This feeling felt…real!"

A self proclaimed “first lesbian sex toy from France,” The Wet for Her Two Dildo has been a topic of note with almost every queer sex educator I meet.  At first, we all thought the same thing: No. Why should I be reduced to getting it on with two abnormally large fingers? This ain’t no tailgating party darlin’, so leave the foam fingers at home!

Still, I wanted to give it a shot. The packaging is hot.  Sleek, stylish with a black and white picture of two very European looking ladies suggestively posing on the back of the box.  Their website explains “Wet For Her chose to respond (to phallic items on the market) with a good dose of style and two fingers of humor!” With that in mind I took the Two Dildo home and laughed my way to a great orgasm. Seriously, from first lube what looks like two cocked fingers twice the size of my own, I felt more connected to the experience of penetration than I do when playing with a phallic toy. This feeling felt…real! Like maybe there was a “well hung” lady in the bed next to me. It allowed my imagination to take on more realistic scenarios.

Like a finger Avatar for G-spotting, finding the right angle is easy with these come hither fingers. The thinness of the silicone allows you to feel more of your lover through the toy and since the thumb is free to roam around the clit, it really does lend itself to traditional queer girl sex.  It’s safe, sexy and silicone. I may not feel comfortable to bring it out on a first play date but it will certainly be on my personal menu more often.

Bottoms Up!

0

by thepleasurechest

We learn today from our friends at  Carnal Nation about an innovative cocktail served recently at a gay bar in Finland. Selling for a cool 69 euros, this drink replaces ice cubes with a chilled, stainless steel butt plug from N Joy. Is this the first fusion of buttplugs and booze? We doubt it. But it got us to thinking about how to liven up our next cocktail party or sex toy social. How about a White Russian garnished with the classic Aneros? Or a very dirty Martini with a Kegelcisor swizzle stick? On second thought, this is a terrible idea.

by thepleasurechest

Here at the Pleasure Chest, we’re on a mission to tell the world that the G-Spot exists. Though some scientists still claim that the G-Spot is a myth, millions of women have discovered otherwise. Whether you’re a seasoned explorer or a novice adventurer, we want to help you on your journey to G-Spot nirvana.

Enter the G-Ki, a revolutionary vibrator from Je Joue, custom-designed for G-Spot joy. The G-Ki features two pivot points, which can be adjusted and locked in place to provide dual stimulation, inside and out.

We’re giving away a shiny, new black G-Ki on Twitter. To enter, simply follow one our stores (LA, Chicago or New York) and send a tweet with the hashtag #gmarksthespot to enter. We’ll pick a winner at random on Thursday, June 16th at 5pm, PST. Enter as often as you like, and let the world know, the G-Spot exists!

Santorum for President? Eew!

0

by thepleasurechest

This is an irresistible news item. It’s the classic man on dog, man bites dog story.

It seems that former Pennsylvania Senator, and “family values” crusader Rick Santorum wants to run for President. But the man who once compared gay marriage to “man on dog” sex is himself dogged by a hilarious internet campaign. Back in 2003, when Santorum hysterically warned of the threats posed by gay marriage, sex columnist Dan Savage ran a contest asking readers to come up with a new definition for the Senator’s last name. The result:

santorum (san-TOR-um) n.
The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.

As in, “Gross, you got santorum on the sheets again!” or “Honey, can you please wash the santorum off the Feeldoe before putting it back in the toybox?”

Savage then encouraged his readers to use the new term as often as they could, spreading “santorum” everywhere. In the years that followed, Savage’s meme took the internet by storm, rocketing the new slang  and Savage’s site to the top of Google’s search results for “santorum.” Eventually, it surpassed Santorum’s own campaign website, hastening his humiliating electoral defeat in 2006.

As Mother Jones reports, if Santorum wants to stage a comeback, he’ll have to undergo the cyber equivalent of a hot shower, to wash the stink of santorum from his internet reputation. Savage, for his part, isn’t backing down from the coming fight. If Santorum really does run for President, he says, “I’m going to have to sic my flying monkeys on him.”

Well, we just did our part in sullying the former Senator’s name. Why not spread santorum all over your favorite forum or your Facebook & Twitter feeds? Oh, and remember to use plenty of lube when having anal sex. Silicone lube works best and makes the santorum extra slippery.
