by thepleasurechest

WHAT?

Take a fun, free trivia-filled tour into the tortured heart of the Hollywood dream factory! From the tragic to the tawdry, ride your two-wheeled steed on an adventure through the lesser known landmarks of both the real and fictional drama of showbiz romance. This easy ride ends at The Pleasure Chest with a costume contest, beer and wine, popcorn, cupcakes, vintage smut films & more!

WHERE?

The Pleasure Chest, 7733 Santa Monica Blvd (between Spaulding and Genesee).

Meet in the parking lot!

WHEN?

Sunday, February 19 @ 1pm. Tour begins at 1:30pm and will last approximately 90 minutes.

WHO?

You. And your bike! Join us.

WHAT TO WEAR?

The costume theme is “Red Romance.”

We’ll be giving away fabulous Pleasure Chest prizes in the following categories

  • Most Red
  • Most Romantic
  • Most Risque

Remember that this is a winter ride! Bring warm clothes if you think you’ll need ‘em.

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

This will be an easy ride with no big hills. We’ll go at a slow and easy pace with frequent stops. Route slips will be included and expert bicycle mechanics will accompany us on this tour. Your fearless ride leaders and the bumpin’ beats of the bicycle boombox will enable you to hear us wherever we go. If you’re planning to enjoy the afterparty at the store, be prepared to lock your bike outside or pack it in your vehicle before joining us for the festivities. If there is rain, the ride will be canceled. You do not need to RSVP to participate, but you can tell us you’re coming at this Facebook event page.

The Winners of Our We-Vibe 3 Contest

3

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we introduced you to the sensational We-Vibe 3, the newest and best version of the innovative “couples’ vibrator.” Designed to be worn during sex, this hands-free, silicone toy is totally waterproof and comes with a wireless remote control. With a 10 foot range and 6 different pulsation patterns, there are so many possibilities. For our contest, we asked you to suggest some possibilities of your own. Here were a few of your suggestions:

“…at the dinner table, movie theater, car ride, out to dinner parties.” -Sherry

“In traffic on the 405.” -Kat

“In the hot tub on our vacay to a remote cabin in Michigan this Christmas.”- Michael

“…while being forced to watched Little Einsteins for the 500th time by my 3 year old twins.”- Gina

” …with my secret boyfriend at work during business meetings.” -Mina

“At my first thanksgiving dinner with the future in-laws.”- Stacy

“…as I suck his cock by moonlight in a deserted field.”- J Burgess

While these were all wonderful entries, we were most entertained by this Dr. Seuss-style, tag-teamed entry from partners Jennifer and Lori in Santa Cruz.

Jennifer: As a lady-loving lady, I intend to use the We-Vibe in as many non-traditional ways as possible: On a train, in a plane, on a bus (it’s a must!), with my harness, at my hardest, after a nap, while I lap, we’ll share both ends and start a trend, on her clit (she’ll throw a fit!), all these ways and many more, with this hot toy we’ll be kinky galore!

Lori: It’s true these things Miss. Jennifer writes. If we win the We-Vibe, we’ll have pleasure for nights. If she wins the prize, it’s not just a gift for her, since with that vibe on my clit, I’ll be begging for more.

We’re suckers for Seuss, and we’d like to help you out with your We-Vibe bucket list. Congratulations, Jennifer and Lori, the We-Vibe 3 is yours!

Thanks to everyone who participated. For several chances to win free stuff in December, be sure to friend us on Facebook!

Win a We-Vibe 3!

43

by thepleasurechest

Honey, have you seen the remote?

We didn’t think it was possible, but the creators of the revolutionary We-Vibe have outdone themselves.

Meet the We-Vibe 3, a silicone hands-free “couples’ vibrator.” Its unique design allows this toy to be worn during penetrative sex, while dual motors provide internal and external stimulation. The We-Vibe 3 has six vibration modes, multiple speeds and is 40% stronger than its powerful predecessor.

But here’s the really cool part. The We-Vibe 3 comes with a wireless remote control. Yes, that’s right– your partner can control the We-Vibe with the touch of a button. We-Vibe claims the controller has a range of 10 feet, but we were able to double that in our in-store tests.

With a pocket-sized controller and a decent range, the possibilities are endless. Discreet public sex? No problem. Bath time fun? It’s waterproof! Need vibration for two? Wear it during intercourse! Tired of buying batteries? It comes with a nifty charging cradle that doubles as a carrying case.

With so many possibilities, how will you use the We-Vibe 3? Tell us in the comments below. We’ll give a We-Vibe 3 to the person who submits the best answer. We pick a winner on Monday the 21st.  Good luck!

The Winners of our Pick Your Part Contest

0

by thepleasurechest

Joque gets the gold!

We asked you last week to tell us which SpareParts harness you most wanted to strap on. The vast majority of you preferred the Joque, for its jockstrap-style design which leaves your ass free for fun. We picked one Joque devotee at random yesterday. And the winner is…Trystero in  Chicago. Trystero writes:

Ohhhh, Joque!!!!! While pegging, I like to keep my bits free…you know, just in case someone else stops by and we all decide to see if I can take as well as give (of course, all while I give). It would all be for science, of course.”

Well, that’s ambitious! We hope you enjoy your new Joque!

Only a handful of you preferred the classic G-string cut of the Theo, which made the odds for winning even higher. And the lucky reader is…Seth in Atlanta. About the Theo, Seth writes:

 I like to hard pack in public occasionally and to me it seems this harness would give less lines under clothing. But the better point, to me anyway, is with its g-string style, it would rub my bits quite nicely when I’m thrusting…giving me an added sensation! Total win for me and my partner!

Theo takes the silver!

Indeed a total win! We hope that you and your partner enjoy adding Theo to your strap-on play.

We had many funny and sexy submissions for this contest. Our favorite entry came from Michelle in New Brunswick, NJ. Michelle writes:

“As a lesbian just starting to experiment with sex with gay men, I’d love the jock-strap style harness so I can play around with my gender identity a little while taking a hunky queer man from behind. As a very feminine woman, I sometimes think the only way I could get a gay man is to dress in drag, and this harness would certainly help me do that.”

While Michelle didn’t win the Joque, we’re sending her a $20 gift card to encourage her experiments!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our contest and thank you to SpareParts for letting us share the strap-on love with our readers!

The Winning Wordsmiths in our La Palma Contest

1

by thepleasurechest

We received a lot of great entries in our “Submit a Slogan” contest for the SpareParts La Palma. We challenged readers to come up with some catchy copy for this handy harness and you delivered!

Our favorite slogan was submitted by Donald in Cincinnati, Ohio. His suggested tagline:

“Can I get a High Five on this? Or How about a low 6″?”

Down and dirty and very clever. A high five and a free La Palma to Donald!

We also picked a runner up winner. Thanks to Melanie in Los Angeles, who sent us the following copy, tweaked for the coming holidays:

“Looking for that perfect ‘Hole-a-day’ gift? Use this mitten on your kitten! Purrfect stocking stuffer, or just to stuff her ;) Too soon for Xmas? Put one on each hand for a real Trick or Treat!!

Nicely played. Melanie. We’re sending a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card your way.

If you didn’t win, don’t worry, we’ll have more SpareParts giveaways throughout the month. Now, how about a big hand for all those who participated?

Submit a Handy Slogan& Win a SpareParts La Palma

21

by thepleasurechest

Need a helping hand? Our friends at SpareParts have designed a unique harness called La Palma. This comfy nylon and neoprene glove gives you the freedom to penetrate your partner by hand! La Palma comes with an assortment of rings, allowing it to adapt to most dildos with a base. You can also insert the included wireless bullets to make it vibrate. This means La Palma doubles as a massage glove (make sure to take the dildo out first!) This glove is also a great fit for those with physical limitations, or those who don’t like traditional strap-on play.

Win a La Palma

Calling all amateur Don Drapers! Think you’ve got a gift for writing copy?

Our current favorite slogan for La Palma is “You’ll have them coming out of the palm of your hand.”  Submit your own slogan in the comments section below. If we like yours better, you win a La Palma. We’ll pick a winner on Friday morning. It’s that simple! So, can you give us a hand?
