[Galleries 5 not found]

Thanks to everyone who came out to our 2nd annual Gloryhole party last Thursday night. This year’s party was bigger and wilder than last year’s. We’re not sure how many of you showed up, because we stopped counting at 1,700. We credit our success to our sponsors. Masque, Fun Factory, LA Weekly, Pink Taco, Screaming O and Dominion all pitched in to deliver a truly amazing party. Thanks also to our amazing hosts Lenora Claire, Luke Nero and  Andrés Rigal, and to the many, many performers who appeared both inside and outside of the Gloryhole.

This gallery is jam packed with our favorite pictures, but if you’d like to see more, be sure to check out the LA Weekly’s photos, and the shots taken in the Oh! Snap photo booth.

Hope to see you all next year!

Last year The Pleasure Chest turned 40 and we threw an epic party for our friends and customers. This year we’re back—bigger, better and dirtier!  The Pleasure Chest has joined forces with sponsors Masque, Fun Factory, LA Weekly, Dominion, Screaming O and Pink Taco to present Gloryhole 2012 on Thursday, September 13th at our West Hollywood store.

Gloryhole is a peek behind the red curtain, giving guests a chance to mix and mingle with the sexual glitterati. Equal parts tease and sleaze, Gloryhole will let the curious see what goes on after hours at one of Los Angeles’ most storied locations, on the very same floor where Joan Jett once shopped for leather gear and 70s gay porn movies were made.

Hosted bv Lenora ClaireLuke Nero and Andrés Rigal

A portion of the proceeds will benefit AIDS Project Los Angeles

The night will include:

Check out LA Weekly‘s photos from last year’s Gloryhole for a peek at what to expect.

Attendance is free, but given the nature of the entertainment, the party is invitation only and restricted to those 18 and older. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by sending an email to gloryhole@thepleasurechest.com and tell us how many will be in your party.

Ice, Ice, Baby! The Winner ofOur Cool Progasm Contest

by thepleasurechest

We asked you how you’re keeping cool during the dog days of summer. And you delivered, with some great tips.

  • “Being naked, skinny dipping, letting people eat ice cubes off of me, eating ice cream, cold showers, kissing in the rain.”- Ann Y.
  • “…using popsicles for dildos on my girl…”- Shel310
  • Fans, ac, ice cubes and creative positions that require the least amount of hot body contact…or not.“-Spank Williams
  • Keeping my Harley at80 mph and stayin on the road!!!“- Ron Rich
  • I’ve been using ice water make my fiances glass dildo icy cold.“- Erick M

All of this is great advice, but our favorite (and most mysterious tip came from nkdpoolmn who keeps cool by “lying naked in the periwinkle!

We have no idea what this means, but it sounds lovely. Then again, we’re Bloom County fans. Congratulations nkdpoolmn! We don’t know where that patch of periwinkle is, but we hope you can bring your new Progasm Ice along with you.

Thanks for all of your entries and keep your eyes open for more Aneros contests throughout Anal August!
