Repin to Win an Aneros Vice

0

by thepleasurechest

  • The vibrator adds an incredible new dimension to sex. My wife loves the buzzing she feels from my erection. It helps push her over the edge. I find that the vibe makes dry orgasms feel like wet ones and it triggers intense super-Os even when I’m flaccid.”
  • Honestly, it felt like a bomb went off in my pelvis. i could feel all the muscles in my body radiating in waves toward my pelvis, like it was feeding it energy.”
  • Had several mini Os, one moderate O with a few spasms of legs, and then I relaxed and let the Aneros do the rest until I got good and hard and finished off with very little stimulation of my penis to a great, hot (as in all over warmth of body), wet orgasm with very warm sensations traveling up my penis.

These are just a few testimonials by users of the Aneros Vice, which won an AVN award for “Outstanding Male Product Design” of 2011.

It’s easy to see why. In addition to Aneros’ legendary anatomical design, the Vice is made of velvety silicone. And did we mention that it also vibrates? The Vice’s removable stainless steel bullet vibe has three different pulse patterns delivered at three levels of intensity. The toy is girthy enough to be enjoyed vaginally too.

Repin to Win

Want to win a Vice of your very own? We’re giving one away– on Pinterest!

Simply follow us and go to this Vice pin. Then simply re-pin for a chance to win! We’ll pick one entry at random on Friday at 3pm PST.

Good luck!

What Are You Reading? Tell Us & Win a Syn! (UPDATED- 8/27)

34

by thepleasurechest

UPDATE: Congratulations to Mabel, who was randomly selected to win the Aneros Helix Syn. We hope you enjoy it as much as you enjoyed the 50 Shades trilogy! Also, congrats to David who won the $20 gift card. We hope you use it to buy something that’ll take your mind off that menacing air conditioner. Thanks to everyone who entered and shared their summer reading suggestions with us. 

We’re huge fans of the Aneros product line. With their anatomical design and engineer-grade plastic, Aneros toys are comfortable, safe and proven to hit the spot. But nothing really prepared us for the Helix Syn.

Based on their popular Helix toy, the Syn has got what Aneros calls “an aggressive curve” which cradles and massages the prostate from top to bottom. You don’t even need strong Kegel muscles, because the Syn does all the work. It’s also coated with a velvety silicone material that feels great. The same soft material covers the P-tab which rests against (and gently thumps) the perineum, so the Syn doesn’t pinch your skin. The Syn has a narrow head that slips in with even a small amount of water-based lube, and it’s small enough that you can wear it during intercourse or for discreet fun anywhere. Though it’s advertised as a prostate massager, it would be a great anal toy for female-bodied folks too. It just feels good. And it has a lot of fans.

Want to Win a Syn?

We’re giving away a Syn to one lucky reader. Simply post a comment below telling us what you’re reading this summer. Whether you’ve got Fifty Shades fever or are plowing through War & Peace, we want to know what you’re reading (besides this blog, of course.) Books, magazines and websites are all acceptable. Post a link if you like.

On Monday, August 27th, we’ll pick one person at random to win the Syn. We also award a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card to the person who submits our favorite summer reading suggestion. It pays to be creative.

This is a discreet contest, so you don’t need to use your real name, but please provide a working email address, so we can contact you. Good luck!

The first uncontrollable event was a P-Wave. Followed by another. Then I began to have a series of P-waves that were deeper and more frequent than I had experienced before. The out of body dis-associative type. Very intense and awing.user review of the Aneros Tempo.

I experienced a 40 minute orgasm using the Tempo.”- another Tempo fan.

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…This would also be a great toy for a woman who wants to feel the sensation of double penetration while having sex.”- Sex Specialist Mike

3 of the Hottest Sex Toys & How to Use Them

2

by thepleasurechest

Still searching for the perfect toy to enjoy this Valentine’s Day. Here are a few of our most popular items and some unusual ways to deploy them in the bedroom.

Njoy Pure Wand $107.95

Explore temperature play. Warm up a stainless steel toy like the Pure Wand by running warm water over it. You can also put it in the freezer for an entirely different sensation. Finding your G-Spot or P-Spot was never so hot. Or cool! This trick also works with glass toys.

We-Vibe 3 $139.95

You’ve already heard about the power and convenience of the “couples vibe.” But we’ve discovered that the unique shape of the We-Vibe 3 has other uses. It fits in your palm while masturbating or giving a vibrating handjob. You can also use it to cradle or cup the balls during a blowjob. With a little flex, you can even use it for prostate play.

Aneros $57.95

The Aneros is one of the most popular toys for finding and stimulating the prostate. But you can also enjoy the Aneros in a hole new way, by adding vibration. The Silk Touch Egg easily locks into the Aneros handle making it a vibrating butt toy. If you already have a vibrator you enjoy, just place the business end against the base of the Aneros and enjoy!

Open Letter to the TSAon Traveling with Sex Toys

3

by thepleasurechest

A little over a month ago, we wrote to the TSA with some questions about the rules for travelling with sex toys. There has been no response. We’ve decided to post our letter here, in the hopes that our readers can share their experiences, and add to the list of questions. TSA, are you listening?

To Whom it May Concern,

I am writing on behalf of The Pleasure Chest, one of the oldest adult toy boutiques in the country. We have been fielding many questions from our customers about which adult toys can be stowed in carry-on luggage and which cannot. We would very much appreciate your clarification on the following questions, so that we may share it with our readers.

We understand that products made of silicone show up on X-ray scanners as a “liquid” and will therefore be removed for inspection. Can you confirm this?

Are travelers allowed to carry BDSM-related items like whips, handcuffs, riding crops and leather restraints in a carryon bag, or must these be checked?

We know that travelers are restricted to 3.4 oz. of liquid in bottles. Many of the lubricants that we sell have a creamy consistency. Does the rule about liquids also apply to creams?

Are travelers allowed to wear buttplugs? If a buttplug is discovered during a body scan or patdown, will the traveler be required to remove it?

Some of our customers use electrostimulation or TENS units which use electrical current to stimulate muscles. Can such devices be packed into carryon luggage? Can they be checked?

Can travelers carry vibrators or dildos in carry on baggage? Are there any specific materials that are prohibited (metal, plastic, glass, wood)?

Some of our customers wear chastity devices made of metal. Can these individuals ask to be searched in a private area to avoid going through the metal detectors? Also, will they be required to remove these devices?

Some of our customers wear “The Diva Cup,” which is an insertable silicone device, used as an alternative to tampons and pads. Will this show up on a body scan? And if so, will it need to be removed?

If a traveler is concerned about their bag being inspected in public, can they request a private inspection?

Is there anything else that might be helpful for our readers to know?

I appreciate your attention to our queries, and look forward to your response. Thank you.

Best Regards,

Matt Cornell
Social Media Guru & Content Writer
