Salon on the Sex Toy Revolution

0

by thepleasurechest

This past weekend, Salon ran an interesting piece on the explosive popularity of sex toys. The article links this development to the phenomenal success of the Fifty Shades book series, but also to a number of high profile media appearances for The Pleasure Chest.

Salon mentions Kathy Griffin’s recent segment filmed at our West Hollywood store and her subsequent interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. Griffin’s segments followed Pleasure Chest appearances on Our America with Lisa Ling and Starter Wives.

Salon suggests that America is in the midst of a fourth sexual revolution, following past cultural upheavals in the 1840s, the 1920s and the 1960.

“Sex 4.0 is grounded in a legal and cultural belief that consenting adults have a right to privacy … and to pleasure. This is adult – consensual and noncommercial — sex after Roe v. Wade in ’73, after AIDS and safe sex, and after Lawrence v. Texas in 2003. Equally critical, it is sex after the wide-scale adoption of the Internet and smartphones that revolutionized communications, including pornography.”
