Win Tickets to Lysistrata in Chicago!

by Kate M.

lysistrata3

Hey Chicago! We’re giving away three pairs of tickets to (re)discover theatre‘s hot new adaptation of Aristophanes’ anti-war sex farce Lysistrata - one pair for Saturday the 19th and two for Saturday the 26th.

“This production penetrates the absurdity of gender expectations by inserting a new and different mix of male and female actors on both sides of this ‘blue balling’ conflict. To spice things up, a male and female actor will alternate the roles of Lysistrata and the Magistrate every other night, giving a unique dual perspective on gender. Want to get in on the action? To ensure your satisfaction, we are allowing you to pick your gender for the night as well. We have surprises in store for both. Choose wisely.”

Each performance will be followed by brief mini-workshop with one of our sex specialists: Gendertalia – Why Everything You Learned in the Locker Room was Wrong with Antoinette on the 19th, and Gender Odyssey, or Binaries are for Computers with Ash on the 26th.

Want to win? Enter the Twitter contest.

Just tweet “Rediscovering Sex! #rediscoverLYSISTRATA @PleasureChestCH @rediscovtheatre” to be entered to win two free tickets!

We’ll announce the winners at 6pm on Friday the 18th.

Hey guys! Sarah Sloane, our Chicago store manager, was quoted in an excellent article about fisting from Ms. Fit.

“Stay away from the concept that it has to be a goal. A large part of the joy is getting there, even if you never arrive,” she advises, and goes on to offer a few practical tips for the fisting-curious. We recommend checking out the article and, if it piques your interest, reviewing the fisting primer on our how-to blog.
