Buns of Steel: The Aneros Tempo Reviewed

2

by thepleasurechest

We gave Sex Specialist Mike a Tempo and told him to stick it where the sun don’t shine. Here’s his illuminating review…

The sleek and slender shape of the Tempo makes it so easy for insertion and 100% comfortable when left inside. The shape of the handle is ideal for when I’m walking, sitting, or standing because it’s contoured to fit between the butt cheeks, but still large enough to not get sucked up into the ass. 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. Another great feature of the stainless steel is the fact that I can use water based, silicone or oil based lubes when putting it in. The stainless steel is non-porous, so it’s also easy to clean with some soap and water.

"The Tempo couldn't possibly feel any better."

Last, but far from least, is the fact that the Tempo gives me a great workout. Having it inside for hours is easy and fun. My asshole is constantly squeezing on the Tempo, which makes Kegel exercises come more naturally. Even when I take it out, my muscles are still tightening up more often. It’s pretty cool.

This would also be a great toy for a woman who wants to feel the sensation of double penetration while having sex. The Tempo is so sleek that it’s not intimidating to have it in your ass. I highly recommend this toy for anyone who wants to experience some fun and easy ass play with zero drama.

Your Anal August Playlist

2

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we introduced our readers to the Aneros Tempo, a stainless steel buttplug designed to get your butt moving.  In this spirit, we asked you to submit your favorite butt-shaking songs and back door anthems, for a chance to win a Tempo of your own. After tallying all the entries, we selected a  winner at random, and the owner of the lucky rump is Casey of Gainesville, FL. Congratulations Casey, we hope that the Tempo fills your butt with joy.

We also awarded Aneros gift bags to our two favorite entries. Alexander from Brooklyn suggested “Do You Take It in the Ass?” by The Wet Spots.

Bravo Alexander. You’ve just given us the perfect song to break the ice on first dates! Enjoy your Aneros gift bag.

Our other runner up winner is Yolanda from Brooklyn who tipped us to this amazing video of “Twerk” by Lady.

This video is mesmerizing. Thanks Yolanda! We hope you enjoy your Aneros gift bag.

Thanks also to the many others who participated in this contest. We made an epic playlist of butt-themed songs below. Enjoy!

Keep your eyes open for another music-filled Aneros giveaway later this week. We can’t tell you the specifics yet, but you might want to prepare yourself by getting familiar with Turntable.fm.

Ambiguously Gay Muppets, Sexy Superheroes & Cuddling with John Stamos

2

by thepleasurechest

During all the fuss over Anal August, we’ve been neglecting our weekly link roundup. Here’s a curated recap of our feed from the past few weeks.

  • With gay marriage legal in New York, many couples are finally tying the knot. This NYT slideshow of gay weddings made us very happy.

Just friends.

  • While gay activists continue to push for nationwide marriage equality, some cheeky folks started a campaign to let Sesame Street‘s Bert and Ernie get married. In response to the controversy, Sesame Street issued a statement asserting that Bert and Ernie are just friends, and furthermore, simply puppets! We say, leave the Muppets alone. But we’d love to see a campaign to get C-3PO to make an honest droid out of R2-D2.
  • Speaking of Star Wars, if you’ve got the hots for Luke Skywalker, here’s a must read on The do’s & dont’s of dating Mark Hamill.
  • What if male superheroes in comic books were posed like Wonder Woman? The result would probably look something like this.  Sexy!
  • Another sexy superhero: DallasVoice.com unmasked Zimmer Barnes, a gay crimefighter whose New York Initiative fights homophobia in the Big Apple.

  • Want to tighten your abs and strengthen your quads? Nah, us neither. But we could watch this 80s workout video all day.
  • Vice asked: Is anyone out there missing a bag of sex toys? 

  • We don’t want to kill your Anal August buzz, but Queerty had this reminder that sodomy is still illegal in 18 states.
  • “Right now, in one of the largest cities in the country, a six-foot-wide pair of white panties dominates one of the city’s most visible public spaces.” So begins this pithy piece of art criticism about a ginormous statue of Marilyn Monroe recently, um, erected in Chicago’s Pioneer Court.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H

  • Postmodern Barney found these awesome vintage men’s underwear ads.
  • The Seattle Weekly profiled a blind man who was prosecuted for illegally downloading porn.
  • Vice published Richard Kern’s unusual photos of naked young women and their prescription meds.
  • Gizmodo reported on the Viberect,  a new FDA-approved male vibrator, which resembles a set of salad tongs. Tossing a salad will never be the same again.
  • An anonymous writer in New York  recounted a week of hot sex with her boyfriend. Their sexual marathon included a trip to the New York branch of The Pleasure Chest, which she called “a candy store of fucking.”

  • This woman helpfully defined 30 paraphilias in 5 minutes. Collect ‘em all.
  • Scientists reported on new brain scan data which maps womens’ orgasmic response, and found to no one’s surprise, that nipples are an erogenous zone.
  • Researchers in the Netherlands claimed that our romantic partners are not as hot as we think. They theorized that such “positive illusions” help keep relationships stable.
  • A survey from the University of Rhode Island said that four out of five teenagers are sexting. In our day, we had to write dirty messages on Post-It notes.
  • Another study of American teens found that boys who masturbate are more likely to practice safe sex. Wait, there are boys who don’t masturbate?
  • A study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior claimed that men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to cheat on their partners.
  • A reader at Psychology Today asked “Who Invented the Blowjob?” The answer: Bonobos or barnacles, probably. (h/t Violet Blue)

Balls in your court.

  • The New York Observer noted a recent uptick in testicle-related litigation in American courtrooms.

Trick or treat? Hips or lips?

  • A reader at Dangerous Minds dug up this unlikely Al Pacino leatherdaddy costume from the notorious 1980 thriller Cruising.
  • John Stamos taught us how to cuddle.

  • Finally, Channel 6 Action News reported on a local man with too many cats.

Put Up Your Dukes! Win Fun Factory’s Unique Prostate Toy.

13

by thepleasurechest

“Healthy, lusty sex is wonderful.” – John Wayne (The Duke)

Hey fellas, are you looking for the right toy to experience P-spot joy? Whether you’re a butt beginner or an advanced anal player, there’s no ifs, ands or butts about it– you’ll wanna give the Fun Factory Duke a try.

At first glance, the Duke doesn’t look like your typical butt plug or prostate stimulator. That’s because of its unique shape, designed with an extra bulge that cradles the prostate and offers a fuller feeling than other butt toys.

As our staff reviewer Mike described it:

“The wrap around shape of this toy gives a strong prostate massage with the one side hitting the perineum and the inserted side resting directly on it. I felt the back and forth pulsation of both sides, and it was awesome. That extra part fills up your ass making it feel like you have a lot more going on up there than your typical prostate massager. My orgasm was intense and lasted longer than normal.”

Fun Factory has also made this toy of its usual high quality silicone, so it’s soft, body safe and easy to wash. Best of all, the Duke vibrates! It’s got a powerful vibe with 3 speeds and 8 different pulse patterns. It charges up with Fun Factory’s unique magnetic charger (kinda like the one on newfangled Macbooks).

Wanna Duke it out? Well, we’re giving one of these bad boys away to one lucky reader.

The Contest

Tell us why you want The Duke! Simply post a comment on this here blog, explaining why the Duke is the perfect fit for you or your partner’s bum. Be creative. Be explicit. Tell us about your anal adventures and aspirations. Female-bodied folks are also welcome to play. The Duke is an equal opportunity toy. You don’t need to use your real name, but please supply an email address so we can contact you.

On Monday, March 28th at 11PM PST, we’ll pick one entry at random.

Retweet to increase your odds!

Tweet about the contest, linking to this post, and be entered twice (so to speak.) Be sure to paste a link to your tweet in your comment, so we can count it!

Our favorite answer wins a gift card!

We love hearing your stories. We’re kinda pervy like that. So, if your entry is especially funny, original or well written, you’ll win a $20 gift card to the Pleasure Chest.

Good luck!

Five Scenarios for a Sexy Valentine’s Day

1

by thepleasurechest

Stuck on how to spend Valentine’s Day with your sweetie? Tired of the same old dinner and a movie routine? Here are some suggestions for changing it up while getting down. And we’ve got the gear to make each of these five fantasies come true.

Play Doctor

“I’m not a doctor, but I play one in the bedroom!”

If you’ve got the patience (and the patient) for a little medical roleplay, grab your partner and begin the examination. Let’s Play Doctor is a fun and easy game for kickstarting your fantasies. It comes with a spinner and cards prescribing 45 different roleplaying scenarios. For added realism (and safer sex), slip on some sexy, black nitrile gloves. If you want to take a closer look, consider using a Graves Vaginal Speculum, which can be used for more intimate exams. If your patient requires treatment (and we know they will), you may want to try a traditional healing method with this fire cupping set. Or, if your patient is suffering from a bite (especially one on their nipple), this snakebite kit could come in handy. Whatever ails them, make sure to finish with a kiss to make it all better.

Skip Dessert

After your Valentine’s Day dinner, satisfy your sweet tooth by saving dessert for the bedroom. If there’s any time of the year to rock a candy g-string, it’s Valentine’s Day. And dudes, there’s a matching set just for you. If you’re feeling artsy or want to wax poetic, you can write sweet nothings all over your partner’s body in rich, dark chocolate with this Shunga Chocolate Body Paint. It’s almost as fun to “erase” as it is to apply. For something more sensual and less sticky, try the Kama Sutra Honey Dust, an edible powder, made of pure honey, which comes in a satin pouch, complete with a feather applicator. Finally, when you’re ready to get down to business, try some Sliquid Swirl lube. The sugar-free, vegan, water-based formula comes in six delicious flavors, from Pink Lemonade to Cherry Vanilla.

Surrender Yourself

This Valentine’s Day, why not hand over the keys to your heart (and other parts) to your lover, partner, mistress or master? Whether you’re giving yourself for an evening, or a lifetime, a collar is a simple, elegant and sexy expression of submission. We love this Tear Drop Locking Collar, made with English Bridle leather and a “teardrop shaped” stainless steel ring. For an even more intimate surrender, lock up your cock, with the CB6000, a long-term male chastity device, made of medical grade plastic. It even comes with plastic locks for those tricky airport metal detectors! If you want to submit, but your partner is still new to BDSM, we recommend When Someone You Love is Kinky, a handbook for helping your lover understand the mysteries of the kinkster heart. Finally, you can’t go wrong with our Silk Entangle Ties, elegant ribbons for wrapping up the greatest gift of all– yourself!

Discover a New Position

Whether on the floor, or up against a door, Valentine’s Day is a great occasion to try some new positions. To get your imaginative juices flowing, check out the Position of the Day book. Packed and illustrated with 366 sexual positions (one for every day of the year, plus one extra for leap year), this handy manual has enough ideas to keep you getting busy until Valentine’s Day, 2012. For help negotiating all those new positions, try investing in a Liberator Wedge. This sturdy foam support wedge provides the lift and leverage to put you and your partner in all kinds of compromising positions. Its sexy microfiber cover is smooth against the skin and machine-washable. But, if you hate post-sex cleanup, perhaps you should move the action to the shower. The Sex in the Shower product line uses an ingenious array of suction cup handles and footrests for a safer, less slippery way to play with wet and wild sex. Finally, if you think you’ve tried it all, hoist ‘em high and try the Door Jam Sex Sling from Sportsheets. Made of comfy, padded nylon, this sling can be thrown over any sturdy door for spontaneous action, whenever the mood arises. No handyman needed. Unless that’s a part of your fantasy, too. (And who are we to judge?)

Play in Public

We’re not looking to get you arrested, but there are discrete ways to play in public, while enjoying the thrill of being discovered. After Valentine’s Day dinner, why not hit a nightclub, bar, or darkened movie theater and smuggle some toys in your pants? For discrete fun, nothing beats the Club Vibe. This discreet bullet vibe responds to ambient sound, which means it can be equally fun on a dance floor or in a crowded restaurant. If you want an even more interactive experience, try the BNaughty Unleashed Remote Control Bullet. A handy remote control with LED display allows you or your lover to choose up to 10 powerful pulsation settings. Sit across from your partner at the dinner table and turn it on, while she tries to conceal her excitement from the people around her. Or, if you want a toy that will give dual clitoral and G-Spot stimulation, try out the ever popular We Vibe 2. As a bonus, this toy can be worn during intercourse, so if you decide to risk public sex, in a backseat or a back alley, she’ll have a headstart on the fun. No matter what the gender of your Valentine, you can never go wrong with a butt toy. For a discrete anal thrill, try warming up an Njoy Pure Plug before setting out to the paint the town red. Made of silky-smooth stainless steel, these popular plugs fit snugly inside your butthole, giving an extra nudge to the prostate. This is especially fun during long walks on the beach or bouncy cab rides through the city. No matter how big a scene you decide to make, remember to tip generously, and make a fast getaway.

Turn On or Buzz Off? Chocolate Santa with Buttplug

1

by thepleasurechest

In our last Turn on or Buzz Off poll we asked for your opinion on the MMA Throwdown Bed, a combination mixed martial arts fighting ring and bed set. The result was a split decision. Half of you were ready to rumble, while the rest of the respondents either cried uncle, or puzzled over how to fit this monstrosity into their bedrooms. We’re calling it a draw. Sorry, there will be no MMA beds coming to a Pleasure Chest near you! But if you end up buying one, please invite us over for a match.

In honor of the holidays, this week’s Turn On or Buzz Off has a seasonal flavor. We’ve told you before about conceptual artist Paul McCarthy’s controversial “Buttplug Gnome” statue, which has Dutch politicians in a tizzy. The “gnome” (AKA Santa)  is seen holding a bell in his left hand, and what is alleged to be a Christmas tree in his right. As many complained, the “tree” looks an awful lot like a buttplug.

A few years ago, the Buttplug Gnome became so famous that McCarthy and his gallery went into the candy business, making 20,000 chocolate replicas of the infamous statue. Channeling Willy Wonka, McCarthy describes this detour down the Hershey highway as follows:

Chocolate Santa is 10″ and is made with 14 oz. of Guittard semi-sweet dark chocolate and comes with a podium. Chocolate Santa is $100 plus Shipping and Handling.

It’s unclear from this site if you can still purchase this questionable confection. We’re guessing they’ve become collectible art pieces! Whether they’re still for sale or have all gone stale, we want to know what you think. The Chocolate Santa with Buttplug: Turn On or Buzz Off?
