Funeral strippers, Navajo Buttsex Pillows & Sean Connery Nude!

0

by thepleasurechest

Here are all of our favorite links from last week’s feed.

Beat the heat.

  • USA Today illustrated a story on the summer heat wave with this highly suggestive visual aid. (h/t Boing Boing)
  • i09 reported on the unusual tradition of “funeral strippers” in rural Taiwan.
  • Researchers announced that the drug Truvada may help stop the spread of HIV. In one study, men and women taking the pill cut their risk of acquiring the virus by 78%.
  • Sociologists reported that women are more comfortable with “sexting” than men. ORLY?
  • A study of female twins suggested that sexual orientation and “gender conformity” are genetically inherited.

  • Japanese scientists unveiled a robot mouth that can sing. Your Fleshlight simply sucks by comparison.
  • When we discovered that someone had found our blog by Googling “Navajo sex pillows,” we decided to take a closer look at the odd search terms that drive traffic to our site. Bonus: We illustrated it with cats!

  • Also last week, a neighbor of ours dropped off a disc of Fantasize a gay porn feature shot in our LA store in 1984! Unfortunately we had to cut all of the naughty bits, resulting in 5 minutes of mostly wordless cruising and personalized customer service.

Dungeons & Dildos?

  • The dildos made by Phoenix-based Bad Dragon made us want to dust off our 20 sided dice. Pictured above: the Gryphon. Other offerings include The Tentacle and Razor the Doberman.

  • Jim Behrle shared his Kama Zzztra, new ancient sex positions scrawled on Post-it notes.

Sean Connery, art model.

  • Finally, Dangerous Minds wrote about the rare, surreal softcore Japanese anime Belladonna of Sadness and Fleshbot tipped us to this playful pictorial of two Super Gay Mario Brothers.

Furries Invade Pittsburgh, Weird Al Goes Gaga & Gay Marriage Comes to NY

2

by thepleasurechest

Here are all the links we liked last week!

  • In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, or chained to a bed (lucky!) all weekend you probably already know that the state of New York legalized gay marriage late Friday night. You could read any number of articles about this historic vote, but we prefer this animated report from the geniuses at Taiwan News.

Here comes the bride.

  • Speaking of marriage, we wonder what the creator of this “feminist wedding dress” thinks about tying the knot.
  • A new study claimed that women’s “gaydar” functions best during ovulation, while another suggested that women are more likely to achieve simultaneous orgasm when their male partners are hot.

  • From hot to cold. Nearly 400 people in Wales stripped off and jumping into freezing water to break the world’s record for the largest skinny dip and to raise funds for cancer research.
  • Our friend Jamye Waxman reported on five reasons why porn might be teaching you bad sex. And they’re not the reasons you might think.
  • Despite what you’ve seen in movies, time travel and sex just don’t mix. That’s what a new study of brine shrimp (sea monkeys!) indicated anyways.

  • Cracked investigated the ancient art of the dick joke, showing that penis drawings and potty humor are older than we think.

  • Over 4,500 furries returned to Pittsburgh last weekend for the 6th annual Anthrocon. The city expected to make $5.3 million from the event, and hotels were packed, with attendees sleeping four to a room at the Westin. Woof!

  • “When Shubin was a 17-year-old high school student, his stepmother became pregnant with twins. Doctors advised her not to engage in sex throughout the high-risk pregnancy—so Shubin’s father, Steve, nosed around for an alternative form of release. When Steve couldn’t locate a realistic stand-in vagina on the market, he began drawing plans to craft his own.”

    Yes, that’s the origin story for the Fleshlight, the world’s most popular male masturbation toy.

 

  • Food porn? Queerty dug up this clip from “Cooking with Beefcake Too!” a bawdy cooking video from the 80s, hosted by a lecherous Jaye P. Morgan.
  • Crystal at Autostraddle shared her top 10 lesbian romance novels.
  • The Beaver Whisperer talked about STIs in the lesbian community.
  • As numerous gossip sites informed us, Jennifer Love Hewitt is a proud customer of our LA store. But where is this Pleasure Chest “bar” the paparazzi are talking about? We’re thirsty!

  • Last, but by no means least, Weird Al Yankovic released his long-awaited parody of Lady Gaga, proving that he can out-queer the reigning queen of pop.

Vintage Lesbians, Futuristic Hotel Sex & Jon Stewart’s Silicone Weiner!

by thepleasurechest

Here’s a look back at our favorite viral videos and sex stories from last week.

The Daily Show – C#@k-Blocked Roundup – Yemen
Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook

  • Why yes, that was a Tantus Hank dildo purchased from our New York store on The Daily Show last week! And true to its fine reputation, the Tantus silicone withstood quite a beating on the “Cockblocked” news wheel.
  • Speaking of runaway penises, The Guardian chose last week to sound off on “the media myth that says men are the feckless passengers of their own insatiable sex drives.”

Looking sharp!

  • Congratulations to Staysha Randall who now holds the Guinness Record for the most body piercings in one sitting. 3200 of them, to be exact. Bravo!

No recess.

  • As summer heats up, the Village Voice reminds us that women can legally go topless in the state of New York. Let’s hear it for a public nudity law without sexist double standards!
  • On the other hand, occasionally the double standard works in women’s favor.” That’s Gawker reporting on the case of a New Zealand woman who keeps beating a flashing charge because there’s no proof she’s physically aroused. Say the cops: “If a man drops his trousers, it is easy to see he is excited, but with a woman that is not possible.” O RLY?
  • Why do women fake orgasm? It’s not just to protect your fragile ego. They might also be afraid of intimacy.
  • A study commissioned by Travelodge claims that by 2030, we’ll all be having amazing sex in cheap hotels. “Futurologist” and engineer Ian Pearson predicts:

“Video, audio, smells and tactile experiences produced using our bed or bed linen will play a key role in helping to make our dreams feel real,” said the report.

“We will be able to replay our favourite dream from a menu just like choosing a movie. Also, we will be able to link into dreams with our partner or family and friends and enjoy a shared dream experience.”

Remote virtual love making would allow individuals to “connect with their partner” while away from home, although lenses could be worn to adjust how their partner looks.

“This will enable people to change the image of their partner on a regular basis, and only they will be aware as their lover will not be able to tell what they are looking at,” the report added.

  • Finally, in honor of Pride month, here’s a lovely message from the International Gay Rodeo Association. Buck up, gay cowboys and cowgirls. It gets better for you too.

AIDS at 30, Colbert on Weinergate & Turn Of the Century Spooning

0

by thepleasurechest

Here are our favorite stories and links from last week’s Twitter feed.

  • After yet another HIV scare, the legal battle over condoms in porn may be going to a new level as lawmakers in California prepare to make them mandatory.

  • Yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of the first reports of AIDS by the CDC. Wired published this interesting map showing the distribution of HIV throughout the United States.
  • Timothy Brown underwent an innovative treatment for HIV and now shows no signs of the virus. Brown’s story gives scientists new hope for a cure.
  • A maverick Indian scientist may be revolutionizing birth control for men. Will RISUG (“reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance”) replace the vasectomy?

  • Carolyn Owlett isn’t a scientist or a statistician, but “Sexy Girls Have it Easy” is full of anecdotal evidence to prove what many women have long suspected.

 

  • Music fans might want to take care when downloading from the interwebz. A report on Boing Boing claims that Titan Media is disguising gay porn movies as music files in an attempt to shake down those who are engaged in illegal file sharing. Is that a Dire Straits album you just downloaded? Or is it “Cop Shack 101?”

Stephen Colbert has been hacked!

  • In other interweb news, Stephen Colbert spoofed the “Weinergate” scandal with a series of hilariously suggestive photos.

Eau de toilette.

Best of the Chest

0

by thepleasurechest

Here’s what we liked, shared, Tweeted, Tumbld and LOLd about in the week’s sex stories.

  • SNL reunited the Ambiguously Gay Duo in an episode called “The Dark Clenched Hole of Evil.” Very funny, even though, as Queerty points out, this fabulous franchise need some schooling in male bisexuality.

Speaking of ambiguous gayness…

  • Another watershed in gay rights: Cuba in transition. Check out this slideshow from the island nation’s 2nd annual Miss Trasvesti drag beauty pageant.
  • After tabloid reports that an A-list celebrity is being sued for spreading herpes, Salon explored the awkwardness of disclosing (and not disclosing) one’s STD status. Honesty, no matter how difficult, is always the best policy.
  • While we’re on the subject of lying, no good men, WTF made us LOL.

Want some bling for your thing?

A Cat-5 o' nine tails?

  • To accessorize those naughty fantasies, Boing Boing suggests this whip for all the kinky computer nerds out there.

  • “My vagina prefers male pronouns.” So begins this provocative poem/affirmation from vlogger Simon.

  • Feminist Frequency examines the Evil Demon Seductress in popular culture. Sexy? Or just sexist?

  • Artist Debbie Grossman: “Imagine an America in which all-female families survived the Great Depression raising children and farming homesteads in the absence of men (and in the absence of today’s detractors to gay marriage.)”
  • WebMD reported on the health benefits of sex. In response, Dr. Ruth tweeted: “I hate when people ask me how many calories are burned during sex. If that’s a reason for having sex, then you’re missing out big time.”

This Week’s Best of the Chest

1

by thepleasurechest

Each day, we try to post amusing, informative and unusual links and articles covering the wide range of human sexuality. If you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, you’re probably already familiar with our daily feeding frenzy. For those who don’t, we decided it would be fun to post an end o’ the week review of the stuff that got our attention on the internet. This is the week’s best links from your friends at the Chest.

The Daily Show – Minneapolis Is the New Gay
Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook

  • Speaking of San Francisco, The Daily Show this week asked “Is Minneapolis gayer than San Francisco?”

Who's your daddy?

  • “For some reason I thought there were other lesbians who felt that way and that was just a part of that community. Then I realized, that’s not what being a lesbian is — that’s what being transgender is.” - Chaz Bono, on the difference between gender and orientation and his path to becoming a man.

 

  • We’re not sure how we missed this, but last month some enterprising safe sex advocates staged a most unusual stunt at the Washington Monument. Keep America safe!

  • The Good Men Project asked the perennial question: Does Size Matter? We don’t know, but Lady Gaga’s giant penis stilettos are the only reason we’d ever tune in to watch American Idol. Too bad those heels at the Fox network censored them.

The boner machine?

 

  • Finally, though this happened 10 whole days ago, we can’t resist mentioning that one of our music heroes, Black Francis (yes, from Pixies!), randomly tweeted us to say “I just got turned on.” And we don’t think he’s talking about his guitar amp.

If you also get aroused by seeing sexy stuff in your daily feed, you can follow our LA, NY and Chicago stores on Twitter.
