Stop by The Pleasure Chest between 7pm and 10pm on Wednesday, 12/17 for great advice from our amazing sex specialists (yes, our class teachers will be available to help you shop!), and sample Revolution Brewing‘s seasonal Fistmas beer while you browse. Yum!

Plus, check in on Yelp during your time browsing, show one of our staff your check-in, and you’ll be entered to win a Luxe Life Kit!

Day 24 Luxe Life Kit

Before your partner gets home, light the Afterglow Massage Candle; its warm glow and rich bourbon scent will set the stage for romance. When your lover arrives, blow the candle out, and use its warm, moisturizing oil to treat them to a delicious massage. Watch their excitement build as you loop the black silk Entangle Ties around their wrists, leaving them exposed to you, and then awaken all of their senses by running the soft Pleasure Feathers all over their body. When they can’t take any more teasing, bring out the Form 2 Lux: the even-stronger, silicone-and-gold edition of our favorite toy vibrates the clit in stereo, with a powerful motor in each shaft.
