Chains of Love: The Oxballs Link Reviewed

0

by thepleasurechest

For some folks, an ordinary cockring just won’t do. Meet the Oxballs Link, a silicone cockring that looks just like a steel chain. We sent Sex Specialist Manny home with the Link to test its mettle. Here’s his report…

The Oxballs Link is made from platinum grade silicone and can be used with water, silicone and oil-based lubricant. It measures 1 3/8″ in diameter and can stretch to well over 3″. The 7/8″ width makes it a pretty thick cockring. There’s also a slight heftiness to it, providing added stimulation on the penis. This cockring is designed to look like a chain with links on it, including slight imperfections and faux welds to give it a more realistic look.

"The longer I wear it, the more pliable and softer it becomes as the silicone retains body heat."

The Link has a unique design and it looks hot. It’s super stretchy, so I have no trouble slipping it on. It doesn’t squeeze hard– just enough to give me that tight feeling I’m looking for. The longer I wear it, the more pliable and softer it becomes as the silicone retains body heat

I’ve also tried wearing the Link without lube and was surprised that I was not irritated by the silicone rubbing on my skin. It actually stayed in place and didn’t move or slide around, like some other cockrings. It also makes a fabulous ballstretcher– I like the fact that since it’s more stretchy it’s easier to wrap around my balls without too much trouble. Another advantage is that The Link can be stacked along with other rings to add weight and make ball stretching more intense. I love my Link!

Escape Carmageddon & Detour to Pleasure!

0

by thepleasurechest

Hey LA. Are you ready for Carmageddon? This Friday evening, a ten mile stretch of the 405 will close for 53 hours. By all estimates, this will be a disaster for anyone who drives a car in Los Angeles.

If you must drive this weekend, you’re very likely to be stuck in some apocalyptic traffic. To make things more bearable, and to keep your stress low, we recommend sinking down in the driver’s seat and letting your hands wander south. Obviously we don’t support distracted driving, but if you’re at a dead stop, why not make the most of it? After all, orgasm reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and sends calming endorphins throughout your body.

We want to help you get there! With our BOGO “Double Your Buzz” promotion this month, when you buy any vibrating toy, you can get a 2nd one for half off.

Here’s a handful of discreet toys to help get your sex drive in gear.

Pucker up!

Grrl Toyz Incognito Lipstick Vibe
Disguised as a tube of lipstick, this little vibe is great for coming wherever you’re going. It takes a single AAA battery and delivers a discreet buzz whenever you need it.

$24.95

The strong, but silent type.

Fun Factory Layaspot

This ergonomically designed vibe fits in the palm of your hand. One click delivers strong and silent vibrations sure to drive you to distraction.

A playlist in your panties.

Club Vibe

The Club Vibe puts your playlist in your panties. It can be plugged into an iPod or any other portable music player. Switch to ambient mode, and it will vibrate in response to your car stereo, traffic noise, or even your passenger’s voice!

$54.95

Ring of power.

Jimmyjane Iconic Ring

Even cocks get stuck in gridlock. If you’re a dude gearing up for a long haul, slip into this super stretchy cockring. It’s got powerful vibrations, sensational texture and two gears– continuous or activated.

Get Out of the Toolbox & Into the Toybox

1

by thepleasurechest

A story in Salon over the weekend, confirms what we at the Pleasure Chest have known for awhile now– men buy vibrators! The article focuses exclusively on men purchasing toys to use with a female partner, ignoring that couples of all genders and orientations use vibrators to enhance their sex lives. Here’s the gist of it:

It’s only recently that sex toys became an accepted symbol of a man’s sexual prowess. Once upon a time, vibrators were seen as posing a threat to masculinity — something that might outperform, maybe even replace, men in the bedroom. But now they’re seen as a useful item in a guy’s toolbox, and many see them as no more emasculating than a power drill. It’s not like 20-somethings are carrying around pocket vibes like condoms, but men are increasingly open to sharing the bed with them.

We agree! But while the article makes some good points, it also reinforces male fixations about sexual performance, and ignores an even more growing trend– dudes are buying vibrators to get themselves off.

Penis Vibrators

In addition to masturbation sleeves like those made by Tenga and Fleshlight, there’s a new breed of vibes vying to grab a piece of the male market. A few months ago we told you about the Cobra Libre, a vibrating masturbation toy that looks like a race car or an old school electric shaver.

Fun Factory Cobra Libre

The Cobra Libre is waterproof, rechargeable and made of soft, body-safe silicone. The inside of the sleeve is designed with all the right contours, and the motor has three speeds, and multiple pulsation patterns. This is a long way from masturbating with a tube sock!

A cheaper and goofier alternative to the Cobra Libre is the Maneater, a vibrating masturbation toy, designed to look like a one-eyed green alien. Unlike the Cobra Libre, you don’t actually insert your penis in the toy. Instead, you use the curved surface of the open “mouth” to rub your cock while the three speeds of vibration add to the stimulation.

Cheeky Boy

Vibrating Anal Toys

Just as boys are discovering the joys of vibration, they’re also learning to love their butts. Anal toys are more popular than ever, and many of the latest add vibration to the mix. As straight guys begin to realize that putting things in your butt doesn’t make you gay, toy companies are beginning to tap that, uh, untapped market. The Cheeky Boy is one of many anal toys that offer P-spot (prostate) stimulation with a little extra buzz. The anal “beads” make a curved line directly for the prostate, while the outer part of the toy presses against the perineum. Once the bullet vibe is switched on, the user can enjoy “rocking” the Cheeky Boy for an explosive orgasm, that no simple handjob could create.

Vibrators for Couples

If he has someone to play with, there are a number of vibrating toys, designed to get him off while offering stimulation to his partner. The most common is the vibrating cockring. Tantus makes one of the best vibrating cockrings around. The high quality silicone conducts vibrations throughout the whole ring, not just at the site of the vibe. The vibrator can be turned upward to offer clitoral stimulation during intercourse, or downward to stimulate the balls and shaft during masturbation.

We Vibe

The latest innovation in vibrators for partner sex is the We Vibe. Specifically made to be worn by a woman during intercourse, the We Vibe’s unique design actually has lots of applications for people of all bodies and genders. When used vaginally, the We Vibe offers separate vibration to both the clitoris and the G-spot while leaving room for penetration. It’s  a rechargeable, silicone vibrator that enhances pleasure for both partners, without getting in the way of intercourse.

It Shouldn’t Feel Like Work!

As you can probably see, we think that Salon‘s “toolbox” analogy is too work-oriented. Men shouldn’t think of vibrators as tools to fix their sex lives nor should they think of themselves as handymen in the bedroom (unless they enjoy that kind of roleplay.)

We prefer the toybox idea, because of its focus on the mutual expressions of imagination, creativity and pleasure. As men become less fixated on performance and more focused on enjoyment, we expect to see even more toys designed for boys and their bits.

It is better to give AND receive

0

by thepleasurechest

The holidays are here! If you’re as weary of Christmas songs as we are, then you’re probably ready to hit the egg nog pretty hard this weekend. But don’t forget that this is also the season for giving and receiving. The best gifts are the ones that you’ll get the most pleasure out of giving (and enjoying later!)

So, if there’s a loved one on your list, consider stuffing their stocking with something from The Pleasure Chest. Here are some ideas, both naughty and nice…

The We Vibe

$99.95

Dubbed “the couples vibrator,” this ingenious device is the only vibe designed to be worn during intercourse. Its unique design gives clitoral and G-Spot stimulation, while providing pleasure for both partners. It’s rechargeable, made of body-safe silicone, and looks pretty stealthy on the bedside table. If you’re buying for a partner, the We Vibe is a great example of giving a gift, that you secretly want for yourself! If buying for friends, the We Vibe makes the perfect present for a couple.

Jimmy Jane Afterglow Massage Candle

$28

These sublimely aromatic candles melt into luxurious massage oil. Unlike wax, the plant-based oils melt at a low temperature, making them safe to drizzle or brush onto your partner’s skin. When the oils cool, they harden again, giving you up to 32 hours of use from a single candle. All of the scents are great, but bourbon is the house favorite here.

Curious Couples Kit

$39.95

This box of joy is ideal for couples. Containing coupons for naughty and nice sex “IOUs,” edible body powder, Pleasure Chest lube, and a vibrating cock ring, this kinky kit will help people come together during the holidays.


Spareparts Joque Harness

$99.95

I saw Mommy pegging Santa Claus! Here’s another gift that both you and your partner can both enjoy. The Spareparts Joque is one of the most versatile harnesses ever made. It’s fully adjustable, fitting bodies of all shapes and sizes, without the fuss of buckles and snaps.  Sturdy, breathable, machine washable, the Joque is fitted with a stretchy, built-in O-ring that can accommodate most dildos.

Sliquid Organics Natural Intimate Lubricant

$14.95 (4 oz.)

Give the gift of lube, with our favorite organic lubricant. Sliquid’s water-based formula is hypoallergenic, glycerin-free and blended with certified organic botanical extracts that help heal and support the body. It’s pretty much the perfect size for stuffing a stocking. Also, try their warming formula!


Jimmyjane Iconic Ring

$36

Your dad already has enough ties. Get him a cockring! Jimmyjane’s Iconic Ring is not just any cockring. It’s a mini marvel of design and function. It operates in both continuous and touch-sensitive modes, with pleasuring nubs to satisfy both partners. Made of stretchy and strong, water-resistant elastomer, the Iconic Ring has a replaceable motor and comes with a one year limited warranty.  Ring in the holidays!

Lasso Lovin’

0

by thepleasurechest

“Oliver” from our LA store roped himself a Rascal Cocktie Set and filed this review:

The Rascal Cocktie Set comes with two stretchy rubber lasso-style rings with four beads for tightening and loosening them. I found the rings wonderfully flexible, durable, and versatile. The beads can create multiple rings out of one, for many uses- cock ring, shaft ring, ball separators, and any combination you can imagine. They’re comfortable to wear for short periods of time, and the stretchiness means they’re easy to put on and take off, even without moving the beads around too much.

One word of caution- don’t pull the beads too far towards the open end of the rubber material! I pulled one completely off just to see how easy it is to get back on, and the answer was simple- it’s impossible, at least for me. Cleanup is easy– just use a little liquid soap and water, and then let ‘em air dry.  Overall, this is a great cockring for first-timers and experienced players alike. Rope ‘em!
