    Negotiate, Negotiate, Negotiate: The Yes/No/Maybe List

    2

    by thepleasurechest

    “Knock knock”

    “Who’s there?”

    Surprise Buttsecks!”

    “Wait, WTF?!?!”


    Okay, all adorable internet cat memes aside, total surprises in bed are generally frowned upon, at least when it comes to a new and/or exotic sex act. Want butt sex? Negotiate. Want to be tied up or tie someone up? Negotiate. Want to call your partner a filthy manwhore while working his nipples like a stuck zipper in a urinal at Mardi Gras? Yeah, definitely negotiate.

    The Yes/No/Maybe List is a tool we use here in the store to help partners get the conversation started. It’s a list of sex acts (to which you can always add your own) and columns reading “Yes”, “No” and “Maybe.” We suggest each partner take a list and fill it out separately, then get together on a sex date, which incidentally is not actually a date in which you have sex, but one to get together and talk about the sex you might want to have without shaming or judging one another.

    Go ahead and try it! It’s way more fun than, say, negotiating and delegating household chores. Although, we do recommend doing that as well. Better communication in any situation always leads to better sex. A little naughty housekeeper roleplay perhaps? The possibilities are endless.

    Oh Good, It’s February!

    0

    by thepleasurechest

    February is one of our favorite months here at The Pleasure Chest, for a lot of reasons. First of all, it’s Black History Month, and this year we’re all celebrating one of the most significant events in American history, the election of our first black president. Then there’s Superbowl Sunday, which is like Christmas for football lovers and people who really enjoy beer and snack foods. Last but not least, there’s Valentine’s Day on February 14th!

    Depending on how you look at it, Valentine’s Day is either the most romantic holiday of all or a total steaming pile of BS. Personally, I think the part that’s BS is the idea that “romance” is the same for everyone (i.e. flowers, candy, and cards that play Celine Dion when you open them). You see, for some, spending the evening tied to their lover’s bed being flogged would be absolutely romantic, but listening to Celine Dion would be absolute torture. That’s why we carry everything to make Valentine’s Day extra-special for all kinds of folks, from couple’s vibrators and chocolate body paint to blindfolds and strap-on harnesses.

    This month we have exciting free workshops in all three of our stores for everyone, whether you’re single, coupled, or looking to add an extra player to your  roster (football reference). Plus there will be a special treat I’ll announce later this week! Come on in and get February friskified with us, and don’t forget, you get 15% off on purchases the same night you attend a workshop! That’s definitely sweeter than a box of chocolates.
