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?

Tight assed Dutch protest “Buttplug Gnome”

0

by thepleasurechest


Dutch politician Geert Wilders has his panties in a bunch over a controversial statue of Santa Claus, created by LA conceptual artist Paul McCarthy. The LA Weekly reports:

The piece, funded by the Dutch government, is intended as a holiday tribute, and its official title is “Santa Claus.” Santa, or a gnome, holds a large, festive bell in one hand, and in the other what’s (perhaps) intended to be a Christmas tree. But the resemblance of the Tanenbaum to a certain kind of sex toy has prompted a populist renaming of the piece as “The Buttplug Gnome.”

We must admit that the resemblance is striking.

    Santorum for President? Eew!

    0

    by thepleasurechest

    This is an irresistible news item. It’s the classic man on dog, man bites dog story.

    It seems that former Pennsylvania Senator, and “family values” crusader Rick Santorum wants to run for President. But the man who once compared gay marriage to “man on dog” sex is himself dogged by a hilarious internet campaign. Back in 2003, when Santorum hysterically warned of the threats posed by gay marriage, sex columnist Dan Savage ran a contest asking readers to come up with a new definition for the Senator’s last name. The result:

    santorum (san-TOR-um) n.
    The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.

    As in, “Gross, you got santorum on the sheets again!” or “Honey, can you please wash the santorum off the Feeldoe before putting it back in the toybox?”

    Savage then encouraged his readers to use the new term as often as they could, spreading “santorum” everywhere. In the years that followed, Savage’s meme took the internet by storm, rocketing the new slang  and Savage’s site to the top of Google’s search results for “santorum.” Eventually, it surpassed Santorum’s own campaign website, hastening his humiliating electoral defeat in 2006.

    As Mother Jones reports, if Santorum wants to stage a comeback, he’ll have to undergo the cyber equivalent of a hot shower, to wash the stink of santorum from his internet reputation. Savage, for his part, isn’t backing down from the coming fight. If Santorum really does run for President, he says, “I’m going to have to sic my flying monkeys on him.”

    Well, we just did our part in sullying the former Senator’s name. Why not spread santorum all over your favorite forum or your Facebook & Twitter feeds? Oh, and remember to use plenty of lube when having anal sex. Silicone lube works best and makes the santorum extra slippery.

    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.
