Missed Connections, Mapped

0

by thepleasurechest

Where are Americans looking for love? A new infographic published in Psychology Today has some answers. Researcher Dorothy Gambrell analyzed the 100 most recent “Missed Connections” ads on Craigslist in all 50 states.

She found that the vast majority of the ads were placed by men: 59% were men looking for women and 27% were men looking for men. Just 13% of the ads were women looking for men and only 1% were women looking for women.

Even more interesting was where people saw the object of their affection. As Tracy Clark Flory observed in Salon, the most popular location in 15 states was Walmart. In California, it was 24 Hour Fitness. In Illinois, it was the train. And in New York, it was the subway. Do our customers in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York identify with this pattern?

40 year olds were most likely to have spotted that special someone at a strip club or adult bookstore (we think that means us), while 30 year olds crossed paths in a bar. 20 year olds met in ice cream shops. Cute!

Have you ever placed a Missed Connections ad? Did the person respond? Tell us in the comments.

Sex Resolutions for 2013

0

by thepleasurechest

We’re just a few days away from a brand new year, so why not make a resolution to have better sex in 2013? Here are a few ways you can step up your sex life in the coming year.

Get in shape

Want better orgasms and increased strength? Give your Kegels a workout. Fun Factory’s Smartballs respond to every move you make, stimulating, massaging and exercising your vaginal muscles. Use them for a quick morning routine or wear them all day, for discreet public play. Made of body-safe silicone!

Kegel exercises aren’t just for female-bodied folks. With the right butt toy, anyone can develop Kegel strength. For a soft, rocking good time, try the Aneros Helix Syn. For a weightier workout, try the heavy metal Njoy Pfun.

Go organic

When in doubt, try a new lube! Sliquid Organics lubricants are hypoallergenioc, gylcerin-free, paraben-free and contain certified organic botanical extracts that helps heal and support the body. They offer a thick gel, perfect for anal sex and a natural lubricating silk formula that feels just like the real thing. For a more adventurous sensation, try their warming lubricant.

Try something new

Get out of your routine and try a new position. Daily Sex has 365 new ways to get tangled up in the bedroom. That’s a position a day! Would you prefer a game? Let’s Play Doctor can help kickstart some fantasy roleplay. Or, for an even bolder start to 2013, exchange these Fetish IOUs with your partner, and redeem them throughout the year.

Learn a new skill

If you live near one of our stores, take advantage of our free workshops. Learn about everything from the G-Spot and blowjobs to buttsex and threesomes. Come alone or bring a partner. Our classes are open to people of all genders, orientations and experience levels. Get 15% off your purchases when you come to a class.
