Intro to Female Masking

0

by thepleasurechest

female masking

Last week, The Atlantic ran a really lovely piece about female masking – the practice of a “specific subset of cross-dressing men” who wear rubber masks shaped like women’s faces, often (but not always) because it turns them on.

The article, “What Men Find Behind Female Masks,” focuses primarily on two maskers: Kerry, who makes his living making and selling female masks, and Lisa, who keeps her masking identity completely separate from her “male life.” They each describe their very different family and romantic lives and the extent to which they can be open about their shared kink. One detail that unites their stories is that they have both found a certain amount of comfort and community online, where they can connect with other maskers. Kerry mentions that, before the internet, he thought that he was alone in his interest in masks.

The author, Luke Malone, who also produced Secrets of the Living Dolls, an upcoming film about masking, lets his interviewees speak for themselves and is conscientious about using their preferred pronouns (which is infuriatingly uncommon in mainstream news). The article’s language isn’t perfect, but it’s markedly better than most of what’s out there. We highly recommend giving it a read.

Here’s how we spent the last several minutes: staring at Porn MD‘s live stream of search terms from their own site as well as sites like PornHub, RedTube, etc. Here’s what to do: click on the link for the Live Search Stream and watch the search terms scroll up your screen, endlessly. We can honestly say that it’s mesmerizing.

condoms on a line

Latex allergies are growing more and more common as latex appears in greater numbers of consumer products. Unfortunately, this means that more people have to avoid most condoms, many toys, and a lot of fetish wear. Luckily, there are alternatives! Educator, fetish model, and healthcare professional Maggie Mayhem has facts about different kinds of latex allergies, lists of products to avoid, and work-arounds for folks who are both kinky and latex allergic. Educate yourself here.

Stinky Foo & Bartholo: Clown Sex at Gloryhole

by thepleasurechest

We are thrilled to be bringing on Stinky Foo and Bartholo for this year’s Gloryhole party. If you’re afraid that the live XXX gloryhole show will be a little too tame for your eclectic sexual tastes, look no further than this pair of payasos, who will be bringing some hot electro play and serious clown fucking.

Stinky Foo and Bartholo are anything but funny.  They don’t tell jokes or do parodies or go to kids’ parties. If they had to work in a circus, it would be a fetish circus. They are known as the biggest clown fucker couple in L.A.

Stinky and Bartholo have performed all around town at gay bars and LGBT events, often alongside The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, raising money for various charities and nonprofits. (All of their profits are donated.) They take pride in changing the minds of the clown-fearing by creating a playful, kinky atmosphere that engages the spectators completely.
