Sam Rosenthal Reads from “Rye”Los Angeles- December 10th

0

by thepleasurechest

Join us on Monday, December 10th from 8pm to 9:30pm  at our West Hollywood store for an evening with Sam Rosenthal, reading from his new book Rye.

Brooklyn-based musician Rosenthal turns erotic novelist within the pages of Rye, a steamy, snarky and sensitive walk on the wild side.

Rye is a money-shot across the bow of outdated sensibilities. It takes a sexual somersault through the complexities of desire in a penetrating portrayal of twenty-first century intimacy.

Forty-year-old video artist and father Matt is seeing Rye, a willful and free androgynous thirty-one-year-old school teacher. Attracted to Matt’s kinkiness and groundedness, Rye develops a fetish for his cock and her submission. At a weekend SexxCamp retreat, Matt meets Rain, a snarky twenty-three-year old GenderQueer woman with both an attraction and aversion to sex. The unconventional sex-triangle develops as Matt expands his understanding of his own complexity and desire for connection.

Sam Rosenthal will be reading select passages, answering questions, signing books and hanging out at this free event. Come!

About the author

For the past twenty-six years, Sam Rosenthal has been the lyricist for the underground rock band Black Tape For A Blue Girl. Their ten self-released albums have sold to tens of thousands of fans around the world. The band’s fans include filmmaker David Lynch and actress Sasha Grey. Sam’s 1996 debut novel, The First Pain to Linger, sold through its limited printing and is now a sought-after collector’s item.

More on Rye

Rye is available in paperback or for your Kindle. It’s GenderQueer, poly, kinky, sex-positive, top-bottom… all kinds of good stuff! Not intended for minors or squares. Read an excerpt from Rye on Amazon or at the book’s website.

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”.
