    Two fingers up! We salute the Two Dildo.

    0

    by thepleasurechest

    Our Chicago staff member Jenae slipped her fingers inside a Two Dildo and filed this report.

    I love sex education. I keep on top of current sex related events the way Joanna Angel keeps on top of James Deen. Porn girls follow me on Twitter! So when I heard buzz around a brand new lesbian toy my pulse quickened.  See, I am also a glorified lover of the ladies. The only reason I know my way around a penis is because I may or may not watch entirely too much porn.

    "I felt more connected to the experience of penetration than I do when playing with a phallic toy. This feeling felt…real!"

    A self proclaimed “first lesbian sex toy from France,” The Wet for Her Two Dildo has been a topic of note with almost every queer sex educator I meet.  At first, we all thought the same thing: No. Why should I be reduced to getting it on with two abnormally large fingers? This ain’t no tailgating party darlin’, so leave the foam fingers at home!

    Still, I wanted to give it a shot. The packaging is hot.  Sleek, stylish with a black and white picture of two very European looking ladies suggestively posing on the back of the box.  Their website explains “Wet For Her chose to respond (to phallic items on the market) with a good dose of style and two fingers of humor!” With that in mind I took the Two Dildo home and laughed my way to a great orgasm. Seriously, from first lube what looks like two cocked fingers twice the size of my own, I felt more connected to the experience of penetration than I do when playing with a phallic toy. This feeling felt…real! Like maybe there was a “well hung” lady in the bed next to me. It allowed my imagination to take on more realistic scenarios.

    Like a finger Avatar for G-spotting, finding the right angle is easy with these come hither fingers. The thinness of the silicone allows you to feel more of your lover through the toy and since the thumb is free to roam around the clit, it really does lend itself to traditional queer girl sex.  It’s safe, sexy and silicone. I may not feel comfortable to bring it out on a first play date but it will certainly be on my personal menu more often.

    G Marks the Spot! Win a G-Ki on Twitter.

    3

    by thepleasurechest

    Here at the Pleasure Chest, we’re on a mission to tell the world that the G-Spot exists. Though some scientists still claim that the G-Spot is a myth, millions of women have discovered otherwise. Whether you’re a seasoned explorer or a novice adventurer, we want to help you on your journey to G-Spot nirvana.

    Enter the G-Ki, a revolutionary vibrator from Je Joue, custom-designed for G-Spot joy. The G-Ki features two pivot points, which can be adjusted and locked in place to provide dual stimulation, inside and out. It’s got 5 speeds and 5 pulsation levels for both ends of the vibe, and it’s made of non-porous, body safe silicone. In other words, a perfect tool for attaining G-Spot happiness.

    We’re giving away a shiny, new black G-Ki on Twitter. To enter, simply follow one our stores (LA, Chicago or New York) and send a tweet with the hashtag #gmarksthespot to enter. We’ll pick a winner at random on Thursday, June 16th at 5pm, PST. Enter as often as you like, and let the world know, the G-Spot exists!

    Cobra Libre “made me cum like a freight train.”

    2

    by thepleasurechest

    Matt from our Chicago store took the new Cobra Libre from Fun Factory out for a spin, and filed this report…

    First off, the toy itself is much larger than images online make it seem. This is a good thing! It looks sort of like a cross between an ice-hockey zamboni and a car you might see in the movie TRON. Somehow, this made me want to stick my boner in there. I’m usually not the typical dude that gets turned on by sports stuff and cars, but I guess I’m a closeted jock or frat boy or something. Yikes. Anyways.

    "If you needed to take a semen sample for whatever reason, this would be a great toy to use!"

    There are good things and there are one or two bad things about this toy. The good: it feels great! It’s very unique in that it encapsulates the head of the penis, where the most sensation is. Very smart! It’s rechargeable, so you don’t need to buy batteries. It’s waterproof, so you can get lube or other liquids all over it without worrying about damaging the toy. This makes cleaning very easy. Most importantly, it feels amazing. It has a bunch of different vibration modes, so you won’t get bored. It pulses, escalates, etc. Amazing. It has low, medium and high speeds. The vibration is intense. It felt like it was surging through my whole body at one point! Crazy. When you blow a load, it’s collected pretty easily inside the toy, so you can just dump it and wash it out. If you needed to take a semen sample for whatever reason, this would be a great toy to use!

    The bad things about the toy are very slight. The control is a sensitive three-button touch pad. It’s a little TOO sensitive. A couple times I accidentally grazed the touch pad and it changed modes, which is annoying, but not terribly frustrating. Also, it seems like the touch pad doesn’t react well when it gets lube on it. I’m a little enthusiastic when it comes to lube use, so maybe I used too much. Either way, when I did want to change modes, it seemed hard to change if there was lube on the control. Again, it was annoying, but wasn’t that big of a deal. So the touch pad was both too sensitive at times and other times not sensitive enough. But again, no big deal. It still made me cum like a freight train.

    In summary, this toy is awesome. The negatives are slight. Altogether, I enjoy it VERY highly and can’t wait to use it again. The price tag is a little hefty, but it’s designed to last 500 charge cycles, so it’ll give you pleasure for a long time. I imagine this toy will be used all the way up to that 500th charge!

    Okay, not exactly, but sort of. You see, this month all three Pleasure Chest locations are sitting at the cool kids’ table with some of our favorite sex celebs and most popular workshops!

    Tomorrow night in Los Angeles, adult film and fetish star Madison Young makes her PC debut teaching Fellatio and Fetishism. We’re super-excited about this fresh take on one of our most popular workshop subjects. She’ll talk about how to incorporate latex, bondage, smoking blow jobs, deep throating, sensation play, toys, and anal play for a long, luxurious oral worshipping of the cock.

    On Monday, May 24th in Chicago, sex ed superstar Midori is teaching her workshop on how to please your man with blow-jobs and more,  Joy Stick Secrets, which has thrilled audiences in all three of our stores. She’ll be there most of the week, with How to Eat a Peach: Cunnilingus with Midori on Tuesday, and Rosy Cheeks: Spanking with Midori on Wednesday.

    And of course, the New York staff of Sex Specialists are known never to disappoint. They’ll be teaching everyone’s favorite penis-pleasing workshop Blow-jobs and Beyond on Tuesday, May 25th.

    by thepleasurechest

    Wait, that sounded kind of pervy… Let me clarify.

    May is National Masturbation Month, and though we’re stocked year-round with toys that are fun for one, we never pass up a chance to celebrate sex.

    This May, we want to know what’s in your personal Pleasure Chest! Whether it’s a shoe box full of vibes or a suitcase stuffed with strap-ons, hidden under your bed or on display in your den, we want to see what you’ve got. Send pictures of your Pleasure Chest to Amanda@thepleasurechest.com for a chance to win up to a $100 gift card to shop at TPC, with $75 and $50 second and third prizes. Become our friend and “Like” our Los Angeles store, New York store, or Chicago store on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for even more up-to-the-minute updates and chances to win orgasm goodies from The Pleasure Chest!

    My “Pleasure Chest” is currently an overflowing dresser drawer, so I wish I could win the prize and get myself a Toibocks or one of the For Your Nymphomation cases (now in all three of our retail locations and coming soon online!), but then I’d probably need 4 or 5. Don’t judge me, I’m a professional ;-)
