Gloryhole’s Lap Dance Roulette: Snow Mercy & Dana Darke

0

by thepleasurechest

Have we reminded you recently that Gloryhole is going to be epic? In case you’ve forgotten, we’d like to introduce Snow Mercy, who will be in charge of all of your lap dances for the evening. The rules of lap dance roulette will be simple: if you’d like a lap dance, Snow Mercy will choose your dancer and decide how long they dance for you. It’s like Russian roulette, except that you win every time!

snow mercy

Snow Mercy is a professional Dominatrix based in Los Angeles.  Locally and internationally, she is a live performer, model, actress, educator, recording artist, and humanitarian.

Dana Darke

Professional lush and shameless hussy Dana Darke will also be making an appearance at lap dance roulette. From burlesque to go-going to pole dancing, dance is her life. She is the newly crowned Ms. Star Garden 2013, and a regular guest performer at both Ms. Kitty’s Parlor and the fetish themed club Black Unicorn.

Excited for lap dance roulette? You can RSVP to Gloryhole by emailing gloryhole@thepleasurechest.com.

Triple Threats: Jiz Lee & Allison Moon at Gloryhole

0

by thepleasurechest

The next two folks that we’re profiling in the lead-up to Gloryhole are triple threats: authors and educators as well as performers. They’ll be joining forces at the event!

Jiz-Lee-Angel

Jiz Lee is a genderqueer adult performer straddling genders and porn genres, with over 200 projects from indie and mainstream, American and International porn houses under their belt. In 2010, Jiz was awarded Feminist Porn Award’s Boundary Breaker, a defining moment within their exploits in adult. Throughout the years, Jiz has their fingers in a lot of good places: they moonlight behind the scenes at Shine Louise Houston’s Pink & White Productions (CrashPadSeries.comPinkLabel.tv), and run the erotic philanthropic Karma Pervs.

It was through pornography that Jiz began writing as a contributor in various web and print publications, from Jezebel.com to the recent academic sensation: The Feminist Porn Book!

Jiz hopes to bring authenticity and diversity to sex in porn, and to help culture more understanding and open-mindedness around sexuality in general. Walking that talk, Jiz is currently taking on their most challenging project to date: coming out to their family about P-R-0-N. The result is a powerful conversation, channeled into their forthcoming anthology: How to Come Out Like a Porn Star: Adult Industry Essays on Family Matters. Ever fascinated by the radical potential of sex, love, and art, Jiz runs a personal blog about sex work as a medium for social activism at JizLee.com.

Allison Moon

Allison Moon is the author the Tales of the Pack series about lesbian werewolves and the upcoming sex-ed roadtrip book Girl Sex 101, which is Kickstarting now. In addition to writing Allison is a sex educator who has taught workshops on topics of lesbian sex, strap-on sex, pegging, gender, polyamory, and more across the US and Canada. Find her at Girlsex101.com.

You can find Jiz and Allison in the gloryhole on the night of the event.

Something Sweet at Gloryhole (Sweet Beats & Diamondback Annie)

1

by thepleasurechest

We can’t wait for Gloryhole! To get you as pumped up as we are, we’ll be giving you sneak peeks of some of the performers in the time leading up to the event. Let’s start with dessert.

SweetBeats

Sweet Beats ice cream truck, featuring DJ Sweet Beats & DJ Potira

We’re so excited to be hosting the Sweet Beats truck again this year. They play music and also give you ice cream. 

Sweet Beats is a rhythmic calling spun by DJ Sweet Beats (aka Ginger Marianne Matsuura). Her hypnotic sound is upbeat and will get the crowd dancing with a mix of genres from disco, funk, house, old school, and hip-hop.

The origins of DJ Sweet Beats are humble, but also true to the belief that good music should be shared and not confined to one place. Remembering the delightful sounds of an ice-cream truck blasting through the neighborhood and the promise for something sweet, she wanted to capture the same anticipation and delight when the source of that music was revealed. From that sense of nostalgia, the Sweet Beats truck was born.

DJPotira

Blending eclectic Brazilian beats with urban underground cultures, DJ Potira believes the natural fit of all different types of music, and her Brazilian background help her read any audience, whether it’s to get a venue jumping or to set the mood to an art gallery cocktail reception, this skill has allowed her to spin at many different venues and shows including events sponsored by Teen Vogue, Elle Magazine, and Chanel.

Potira is known for mixing up a very eclectic set with many genres of music. She has developed her own style, seamlessly blending classic Hip-Hop beats wedged between Samba rhythms and Cuíca Drums.

Diamondback Annie - Soda Jerk 4

If, however, you prefer your ice cream prepared in someone’s jockstrap, Diamondback Annie can help with that. 

Rock & roll showgirl Diamondback Annie is America’s most badass burlesque star. Since winning Best Debut at the 2005 Burlesque Hall of Fame competition, she has headlined events worldwide as a solo artist with her signature blend of striptease and arena rock.

Based in Los Angeles, she was a member of The Velvet Hammer – the troupe credited with originating the burlesque revival – and currently performs with the long-running Mexican wrestling and burlesque show Lucha VaVoom.

You’ll be able to find Diamondback Annie at the Lap Dance Roulette Station.

Threesomes for Everyone!

0

by thepleasurechest

reid-mihalko

We’re excited to see that a workshop at our Los Angeles store, Negotiating Successful and Sexy Threesomes with Reid Mihalko (above), was written up in British GQ. Sex columnist Anka Radakovich attended the workshop, and she gives an entertaining account of the evening.

As the room filled up with threesome seekers, I wondered what the teacher’s credentials for teaching the class might be. It turned out our teacher, Reid Mihalko, had the perfect CV: “I have had more than 300 threesomes,” he tells the class. “I just had one today!”

Radakovich recaps some of the class’s highlights, including tips on where to meet partners, suggested sexual positions for three, and some characteristically colorful advice from Milhalko. “Watching porn to learn about how to have a threesome is like learning how to drive by watching The Fast And The Furious,” he tells the class.

Although the article focuses on advice for men seeking women, the workshop is intended for people of all genders and orientations. If you’d like to attend, please keep an eye on our workshop schedule. Additionally, Reid Mihalko will be joining us this month for our annual Gloryhole party.

Ye Olde Dirty Pictures

anne kellerman

When you look at this bathing-suited woman, don’t you feel scandalized? No? Not a little bit? Hm.

Annette Kellerman, the professional swimmer pictured above, was arrested for indecency in 1907 for her oh-so-revealing swimwear. If you, unlike early 20th century beach-goers, are not easily shocked by the sight of an ankle, you might enjoy this collection of images that were once considered terribly unseemly. Fetch the smelling salts!
