This Sunday is Fisting Day!

1

by thepleasurechest

Join us this Sunday, October 21st in solemn observance of Fisting Day!

What’s Fisting Day, you ask? It’s a global event created by queer porn icons Jiz Lee and Courtney Trouble to promote acceptance of vaginal and anal fisting. As they explain on the official Tumblr:

“Fisting Day began not only as a celebration, but a call for awareness – this sex act is banned and censored in most forms of adult entertainment, and that fear is reflected outside of the sex industry as well. We believe that sex-positive education, exposure, information, and discussion is an easy cure for this fist-phobia!”

We totally support this worthy goal, and want to lend a helping hand. To support Fisting Day, we’ll be offering 20% off your entire purchase on Sunday, October 21st.

If you’re coming into one our retail stores, simply mention “Fisting Day” to get 20% off your purchase. If ordering online, type fistingday into the coupon # box during checkout.

Need some pointers? Here’s our handy guide.

A Hand in the Bush is the ultimate, um, “handbook” on the fine art of vaginal fisting. It’s filled with practical information on how to get started. And it’s been approved by three fisting-friendly physicians.

The Oxballs Fist Plug is super realistic and made of soft, body-safe silicone. It’s got a nice wide base that’ll keep it snug in your butt.

When only a famous fist will do, try Belladonna’s Bitch Fist. This unique dildo is made from an exact replica of porn star Belladonna’s forearm and fist.

Whether you’re a first timer or an old hand, it’s a good rule of the thumb to use plenty of lube. And J-Lube is hands down the best lube for anal fisting. Simply mix a little bit of water with the J-Lube powder for a slippery good time. One bottle lasts a long, long, time.

If you plan on playing safe, we strongly recommend a pair of gloves. Unless you’re into medical play (and there’s nothing wrong with that), we recommend these fashionable black latex gloves.

If you want to watch vaginal fisting, we highly recommend the Crash Pad series, especially the kinky installment called “Rope Burn.”

Speaking of Crash Pad, they’ve got a great tutorial on their blog. Check out “Vaginal Fisting Basics”.

The NoseBanger. Turn On or Buzz Off?

2

by thepleasurechest

Last month, we introduced you to the Heeldo, a strap-on harness for the foot. In total, 113 of you voted and a whopping 83% were fans of footballin’, while just 17% wanted to kick the Heeldo to the curb. It probably helped that Heeldo told its Twitter followers to toe the line and vote in our poll. But we don’t want our praise to seem arch or callous. So we’ll simply say congratulations Heeldo!

The NoseBanger

This month’s contender on Turn On or Buzz Off ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at. Meet the NoseBanger, the world’s first (only?) nose-stimulating dildo. Last year, we wrote about the tentative discovery of the N-Spot, an erogenous zone in the right nostril. Located  in the columella, the fleshy outer part of the septum, this discreet bundle of nerves is quite sensitive to pressure. Many dedicated nasal spelunkers have even discovered the ability to have an “orgasm-like” experience when probing the N-Spot.

According to the marketing literature sent with the NoseBanger, its creators are hoping to um, fill the hole in the market for toys catering to nasophiles:

Made of platinum cure, body-safe silicone, the NoseBanger is the world’s first nasal dildo. Simply slip the NoseBanger over your index finger, generously apply lubricant, and then gently insert into your nostril or your partner’s.

N-Spot detail

If you are “N-Spotting,” insert into the right nostril and gently push the head of the NoseBanger to the mid-point of the septum. Gently and firmly rub the cartilage to awaken and stimulate the nerve bundle. With dedicated practice, many users report experiencing climax. Whether to pleasure your N-Spot or simply to enjoy penetration in a new way, the NoseBanger guarantees hours of fun! 

The NoseBanger’s creators also suggest slipping a condom over your finger, for protection and to prevent slippage. Though it can be used with any lube, they’re recommending their own viscous, water-based formula I Can’t Believe It’S Not Lube.

Say what you will about the inventors of the NoseBanger– they’ve got a sense of humor. In fact, their pun-filled brochure is like mucus to our ears. We wonder what their manufacturing process looks like. Can we take a tour of the ole’ factory?

Special Lubricant

Unfortunately, the makers of the NoseBanger did not send along any photos of their product in use. But given the rise in nasophilia, we smell a hit! It shouldn’t be long before nasophiles are posting pics of their plundered holes on schnoz sites all over the interwebs.

On the other hand, we have some logistical questions. Won’t we look a bit silly with a small cock up our noses? And what about nose hair? Do we wax it bare or keep the classic bush? Won’t this toy just make us insecure about the size of our nostrils?

What about you? Do you dig the NoseBanger? Would you pick it or flick it? Take our poll!

3 of the Hottest Sex Toys & How to Use Them

2

by thepleasurechest

Still searching for the perfect toy to enjoy this Valentine’s Day. Here are a few of our most popular items and some unusual ways to deploy them in the bedroom.

Njoy Pure Wand $107.95

Explore temperature play. Warm up a stainless steel toy like the Pure Wand by running warm water over it. You can also put it in the freezer for an entirely different sensation. Finding your G-Spot or P-Spot was never so hot. Or cool! This trick also works with glass toys.

We-Vibe 3 $139.95

You’ve already heard about the power and convenience of the “couples vibe.” But we’ve discovered that the unique shape of the We-Vibe 3 has other uses. It fits in your palm while masturbating or giving a vibrating handjob. You can also use it to cradle or cup the balls during a blowjob. With a little flex, you can even use it for prostate play.

Aneros $57.95

The Aneros is one of the most popular toys for finding and stimulating the prostate. But you can also enjoy the Aneros in a hole new way, by adding vibration. The Silk Touch Egg easily locks into the Aneros handle making it a vibrating butt toy. If you already have a vibrator you enjoy, just place the business end against the base of the Aneros and enjoy!

Open Letter to the TSAon Traveling with Sex Toys

3

by thepleasurechest

A little over a month ago, we wrote to the TSA with some questions about the rules for travelling with sex toys. There has been no response. We’ve decided to post our letter here, in the hopes that our readers can share their experiences, and add to the list of questions. TSA, are you listening?

To Whom it May Concern,

I am writing on behalf of The Pleasure Chest, one of the oldest adult toy boutiques in the country. We have been fielding many questions from our customers about which adult toys can be stowed in carry-on luggage and which cannot. We would very much appreciate your clarification on the following questions, so that we may share it with our readers.

We understand that products made of silicone show up on X-ray scanners as a “liquid” and will therefore be removed for inspection. Can you confirm this?

Are travelers allowed to carry BDSM-related items like whips, handcuffs, riding crops and leather restraints in a carryon bag, or must these be checked?

We know that travelers are restricted to 3.4 oz. of liquid in bottles. Many of the lubricants that we sell have a creamy consistency. Does the rule about liquids also apply to creams?

Are travelers allowed to wear buttplugs? If a buttplug is discovered during a body scan or patdown, will the traveler be required to remove it?

Some of our customers use electrostimulation or TENS units which use electrical current to stimulate muscles. Can such devices be packed into carryon luggage? Can they be checked?

Can travelers carry vibrators or dildos in carry on baggage? Are there any specific materials that are prohibited (metal, plastic, glass, wood)?

Some of our customers wear chastity devices made of metal. Can these individuals ask to be searched in a private area to avoid going through the metal detectors? Also, will they be required to remove these devices?

Some of our customers wear “The Diva Cup,” which is an insertable silicone device, used as an alternative to tampons and pads. Will this show up on a body scan? And if so, will it need to be removed?

If a traveler is concerned about their bag being inspected in public, can they request a private inspection?

Is there anything else that might be helpful for our readers to know?

I appreciate your attention to our queries, and look forward to your response. Thank you.

Best Regards,

Matt Cornell

Ambiguously Gay Muppets, Sexy Superheroes & Cuddling with John Stamos

2

by thepleasurechest

During all the fuss over Anal August, we’ve been neglecting our weekly link roundup. Here’s a curated recap of our feed from the past few weeks.

  • With gay marriage legal in New York, many couples are finally tying the knot. This NYT slideshow of gay weddings made us very happy.

Just friends.

  • While gay activists continue to push for nationwide marriage equality, some cheeky folks started a campaign to let Sesame Street‘s Bert and Ernie get married. In response to the controversy, Sesame Street issued a statement asserting that Bert and Ernie are just friends, and furthermore, simply puppets! We say, leave the Muppets alone. But we’d love to see a campaign to get C-3PO to make an honest droid out of R2-D2.
  • Speaking of Star Wars, if you’ve got the hots for Luke Skywalker, here’s a must read on The do’s & dont’s of dating Mark Hamill.
  • What if male superheroes in comic books were posed like Wonder Woman? The result would probably look something like this.  Sexy!
  • Another sexy superhero: DallasVoice.com unmasked Zimmer Barnes, a gay crimefighter whose New York Initiative fights homophobia in the Big Apple.

  • Want to tighten your abs and strengthen your quads? Nah, us neither. But we could watch this 80s workout video all day.
  • Vice asked: Is anyone out there missing a bag of sex toys? 

  • We don’t want to kill your Anal August buzz, but Queerty had this reminder that sodomy is still illegal in 18 states.
  • “Right now, in one of the largest cities in the country, a six-foot-wide pair of white panties dominates one of the city’s most visible public spaces.” So begins this pithy piece of art criticism about a ginormous statue of Marilyn Monroe recently, um, erected in Chicago’s Pioneer Court.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H

  • Postmodern Barney found these awesome vintage men’s underwear ads.
  • The Seattle Weekly profiled a blind man who was prosecuted for illegally downloading porn.
  • Vice published Richard Kern’s unusual photos of naked young women and their prescription meds.
  • Gizmodo reported on the Viberect,  a new FDA-approved male vibrator, which resembles a set of salad tongs. Tossing a salad will never be the same again.
  • An anonymous writer in New York  recounted a week of hot sex with her boyfriend. Their sexual marathon included a trip to the New York branch of The Pleasure Chest, which she called “a candy store of fucking.”

  • This woman helpfully defined 30 paraphilias in 5 minutes. Collect ‘em all.
  • Scientists reported on new brain scan data which maps womens’ orgasmic response, and found to no one’s surprise, that nipples are an erogenous zone.
  • Researchers in the Netherlands claimed that our romantic partners are not as hot as we think. They theorized that such “positive illusions” help keep relationships stable.
  • A survey from the University of Rhode Island said that four out of five teenagers are sexting. In our day, we had to write dirty messages on Post-It notes.
  • Another study of American teens found that boys who masturbate are more likely to practice safe sex. Wait, there are boys who don’t masturbate?
  • A study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior claimed that men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to cheat on their partners.
  • A reader at Psychology Today asked “Who Invented the Blowjob?” The answer: Bonobos or barnacles, probably. (h/t Violet Blue)

Balls in your court.

  • The New York Observer noted a recent uptick in testicle-related litigation in American courtrooms.

Trick or treat? Hips or lips?

  • A reader at Dangerous Minds dug up this unlikely Al Pacino leatherdaddy costume from the notorious 1980 thriller Cruising.
  • John Stamos taught us how to cuddle.

  • Finally, Channel 6 Action News reported on a local man with too many cats.
