Amsterdam’s Oldest Twin Sex Workers Retire

0

by thepleasurechest

Louise and Martine Fokkens, twin sisters who have worked as prostitutes in Amsterdam for over 50 years, have retired. The pair were the subject of a documentary released last year called Meet the Fokkens and are currently working on a book. This brief article in the Daily Mail hardly does their storied careers justice, but the Fokkens have some interesting observations about how the sex trade has changed in Amsterdam since legalization.

Louise will continue to see one kinky older client. “‘I couldn’t give him up. He’s been coming to me for so long it’s like going to church on a Sunday,” she said.

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.”

Read the entire story on Salon.

As readers of our blog know, kink is coming out of the closet. With the Fifty Shades series sparking a revolution in American bedrooms,  BDSM is going mainstream. There’s no better evidence of this than a lengthy trend piece in the New York Times this week that claims kinky sex is a “Hush-Hush Topic No More.”

Do you agree? Are you kinky? Are you open about your sexuality? Or do you keep it a secret from your friends, family and co-workers? Tell us anonymously (or not) in the comments below!

Fifty Songs of KinkA Pervy Playlist from Our Readers

3

by thepleasurechest

Earlier this week, we asked our readers to suggest their favorite kinky songs. Behold “Fifty Songs of Kink,” a pervy playlist crowdsourced from your suggestions. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find everything you suggested in the Spotify library, so we added a few of our staff’s favorite songs too. We also put the most controversial entry– a Nickelbag song– at the end of the playlist. Listen to the end if you’re a true masochist.

We’d like to congratulate Michelle who was randomly chosen to win our collection of kinky toys. We’d also like to thank Cheyanne, who was the first of two readers to suggest Tom Lehrer’s “Masochism Tango.” This song was our staff favorite, so we’re sending Cheyanne a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card!

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Enjoy the tunes and have a very kinky Valentine’s Day!
