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

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

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.

Pangao Breast Enhancer. Turn On or Buzz Off?

2

by thepleasurechest

We’ve got the dirt on last month’s poll about the lint roller with a vibrator hidden inside. 62% of you would gladly take L’Intimate out for a spin, while just 12% want it to stay hidden. We’re also proud to report that 27% of you don’t bother to hide your sex toys at all. Now, that’s what we call “true grit.” Stick with us, because L’Intimate might be rolling into a store near you soon.

This week’s contestant on Turn On or Buzz Off is a vibrating bra. Or as its Chinese manufacturer Pangao calls it, a “Breast Enhancer.” Why would you want such a product? Allow the very enlightened feminists at Pangao’s marketing department to explain:

A well-developed and sexy cleavage is a symbol of a female’s charm. The female breasts are not only meant for feeding babies; they are an important part of a woman’s body. Every woman dreams of having beautiful and sexy breasts as this is perceived as being attractive.

Pangao Breast Enhancer is the best gift for every woman. By using it often, it can prevent and cure breast diseases and enhance the shape of one’s cleavage.

But how does this miracle product work? Read on:

PANGAO Breast Enhancer stimulates the female breast, accelerates blood circulation and activates cell renewal and hormone secretion through physical massage by the vibration balls found within the enhancer. Thus, the female breast is obviously enlarged and will look more rounded, sexy and youthful

PANGAO Breast Enhancer effectively pushes up the breast, dredges breast glands, eliminates blood stasis and prevents breast diseases and breast from flaccid. It also moves fat from problem areas to give a well-shaped figure. If used often, it can prevent insomnia, increase immunity to diseases and assist in better internal secretion.

Wow, it’s too bad the name “Wonder Bra” was already taken! And if you don’t believe the copywriters from Pangao, just check out the celebrity endorsements. Here’s a clip of Ellen DeGeneres and Jennifer Aniston dredging their breast glands on national television.

As sex positive folks who like breasts in all shapes and sizes, we’re not sure that the vibrating bra is something we can, uh, support. Our cups runneth over with companies preying on women’s insecurities to make a quick buck. Still, the boobs running Pangao may have another agenda in mind. Vibrators of yore were often sold for their “health” properties, so perhaps this vibrating bra is really a stealth sex toy. Would the extra jiggle make you giggle? Does the vibrating bra make you titter? Or just angry and bitter?
