Sex Manuals Through the Centuries

1

by thepleasurechest

old time sex manual

Are you looking for a little guidance when it comes to your sex life? You could try a sex ed standard like The Guide to Getting it On or something a little lighter, like the comic-style Sex is Fun. Alternatively, you could go with the 1680 advice manual The School of Venus, whose illustration above may or may not depict an early sex shop. We hope it does.

For a brief history of this and other sex manuals throughout history, check out this guide from Nerve.

A Less Awful Sex Ed

1

by thepleasurechest

Did you get sex ed in school? If so, you’re very lucky if was better than the usual scripts:

Fourth or fifth grade:

“Soon, you will start to grow hair in places. Your body will change in some ways. Do not be afraid. Here are some artfully-depicted naked grown-ups with no genitals. Also, here is some deodorant and/or enormous pads. Never, ever show them to anyone.”

Sixth or seventh grade:

“Here are some diagrams of fetal development.”

High School:

“This is a condom. You should use one if you have sex, except you should not be having sex. If you have sex, you will get lots of deadly infections. Here are some close-up photographs of all of the terrible, horrible, confusing things that will definitely happen to your genitals. Also, do you really think you’re ready to be a parent? Think of your future.

If you’re cringing with the memory of your own sex ed horror story, we suggest washing it down with The Frisky’s list of “10 Things Everyone Should Learn in Sex Ed.” We would love if schools implemented safer sex curricula that focused on empowering students to make informed choices about barriers, partners, and what they actually want to do. Still, even if your main source of sex ed was that one friend who told you that the hymen grows back every time, it’s never too late to learn.

How about you? What do you wish you’d learned? What would you add to a sex ed curriculum?

Threesomes for Everyone!

by thepleasurechest

reid-mihalko

We’re excited to see that a workshop at our Los Angeles store, Negotiating Successful and Sexy Threesomes with Reid Mihalko (above), was written up in British GQ. Sex columnist Anka Radakovich attended the workshop, and she gives an entertaining account of the evening.

As the room filled up with threesome seekers, I wondered what the teacher’s credentials for teaching the class might be. It turned out our teacher, Reid Mihalko, had the perfect CV: “I have had more than 300 threesomes,” he tells the class. “I just had one today!”

Radakovich recaps some of the class’s highlights, including tips on where to meet partners, suggested sexual positions for three, and some characteristically colorful advice from Milhalko. “Watching porn to learn about how to have a threesome is like learning how to drive by watching The Fast And The Furious,” he tells the class.

Although the article focuses on advice for men seeking women, the workshop is intended for people of all genders and orientations. If you’d like to attend, please keep an eye on our workshop schedule. Additionally, Reid Mihalko will be joining us this month for our annual Gloryhole party.

This Month in Online Dating

2

by thepleasurechest

anxious in front of a computer

Lately, we can’t go anywhere on the internet without hearing about a new dating site, hookup app, or some variation thereof. Folks who are looking for lasting love, a one-night stand, or something in the middle are spoiled for choice. We decided to make things a little easier by compiling the best few things we’ve read recently, so that you can stay savvy about virtual courtship. Enjoy!

Earlier this month, Nerve covered Hinge, an app that hooks you up with your friends’ friends, through Facebook. (For the awkward set-up that you engineer yourself!)

“This is the post-data revolution app, something that doesn’t play upon the information we’ve groomed for the public with a fine-toothed comb, but instead, it takes the information we’ve been voluntarily sending out into the ether of the web for years, for better or for worse.”

Now, we’re hearing about Pure, a new all-genders casual hookup app that cuts right to the chase. From New York Magazine:

 “On Pure, users designate their gender and the gender(s) of the people they’d like to sleep with, specify whether they are able to host or not, and are shown any other willing users in the surrounding area, each with an “Okay” or “No Way” prompt. When two users are mutually attracted, they’re given each others’ coordinates to meet up. There are no profiles, no lengthy chat sessions, and all unfulfilled requests vanish after an hour.”

For folks who prefer a more traditional dating site, in which you exchange messages before meeting up, advice columnist Captain Awkward offers the most practical advice we’ve heard on the subject. For example:

“When you write to someone for the first time, follow the alliterative trinity of:

- Short
- Simple
- Specific

Initial greeting script: ‘Hi, I really like your profile, especially (where you said x cool thing)(the fact that you like x piece of media that I also like)(the photo of you where you are doing or wearing awesome stuff). Where did you find your (cosplay element)(unique bookcase)(jazz record collection)(fancy shoes)?’”

We strongly encourage you to check out the rest, here.

Once you’ve chosen your site or app, you’ll usually have to make a profile. You could try to wow your potential mates with your wit, your collection of exciting hobbies, and your highbrow tastes in reading and viewing material. Alternatively, you could just use this random profile generator, which combines some of the most common elements of online dating profiles into… basically nonsense. We ended up with sentences like,

“Using my farmshare I’m just a regular guy I love the smell of down to earth Infinite Jest vinyl records.”

and

“Listening to music skiing feminism I’m not good at filling out these things.”

We think we come off looking pretty good.

The Stronic Eins, Explained

2

by thepleasurechest

stronic

Have you been curious about the Stronic, the new toy from Fun Factory that looks like a vibrator but instead pulses and thrusts? Many customers have been! The Stronic comes in two shapes, the original Eins (pictured above) and the butt-friendly Zwei. Our own Sarah Sloane reviewed the Stronic Eins, to give you a better idea of what this toy is all about.

“True fact: I dislike vibrators. They generally numb me out. They don’t really get all my juices flowing, and frankly, if they get me to orgasm, they do it too fast for my personal tastes. In the past, my go-to toys have been things that press in and fill me up — glass dildos, the Pure Wand, and so on. I’d pretty much despaired of ever finding a moving toy that I’d fall in lust with — until the Stronic arrived!

The Stronic works on a whole different principle — instead of vibrating, it pulses, which feels like anything from a tapping massage (when aimed at my G-Spot) to a rocking shallow thrust (when aimed further into the vagina). It’s a unique sensation, and if you don’t like traditional vibrators, it might just be ideal.

I took it through its paces a few times, and figured out a couple of great ways to use it. You can, of course, use it perpendicular to the body (“straight in”), and it’ll give some great thrusting as well as movement to the inner labia and indirect sensation to the clit. I really love it angled down (towards my lower back), so that the shaft rocks against my clit and between my labia — and at the strongest patterns, it provides a yummy pounding sensation. And when I want a G-Spot session, angling the tip so that it bumps against my G-Spot is ideal. (For those who want a little extra against the clit, throw an O-Wow ring onto the Stronic for dual stimulation sensation). 

I definitely recommend lots of your favorite water based lube with this toy — it lets the pulsator slide against your body in really sensual ways, and keeps you from feeling rubbed the wrong way. I also recommend taking a few exploratory trips with this toy in lots of positions, because what works for you may not be the obvious choices.

All in all, this is an ideal toy for the person for whom vibes aren’t a great fit — but it’s also great for the sex toy connoisseur who wants a toy that is truly unique to add to their pleasure collection. With the click-n-charge charger (which also works with other Fun Factory toys), and the two year warranty, this is one toy that will keep you coming back for more for a long, long, time!”

The Worst of All Possible Sex Tips

by thepleasurechest

whipped cream and other delights

We’ve been cracking up over The Hairpin’s alphabet of terrible sex tips. Among our favorites:

I Spy: If your man gets turned on by the thought of being watched, casually leave the laptop open while you’re getting it on. Then, Skype his mom!

Just Desserts: Show up at his place in a business-like trench coat, with nothing on underneath but a thick layer of whipped cream. Hope it’s not a long drive!

X-Rated Film Festival: Invite him over for a night of X-rated cinema, specifically, Evil Dead II, La Grand Bouffe, Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, and A Clockwork Orange.

You can read the whole list here, or share your own below.

Five Scenarios for a Sexy Valentine’s Day

1

by thepleasurechest

Stuck on how to spend Valentine’s Day with your sweetie? Tired of the same old dinner and a movie routine? Here are some suggestions for changing it up while getting down. And we’ve got the gear to make each of these five fantasies come true.

Play Doctor

“I’m not a doctor, but I play one in the bedroom!”

If you’ve got the patience (and the patient) for a little medical roleplay, grab your partner and begin the examination. Let’s Play Doctor is a fun and easy game for kickstarting your fantasies. It comes with a spinner and cards prescribing 45 different roleplaying scenarios. For added realism (and safer sex), slip on some sexy, black nitrile gloves. If you want to take a closer look, consider using a Graves Vaginal Speculum, which can be used for more intimate exams. If your patient requires treatment (and we know they will), you may want to try a traditional healing method with this fire cupping set. Or, if your patient is suffering from a bite (especially one on their nipple), this snakebite kit could come in handy. Whatever ails them, make sure to finish with a kiss to make it all better.

Skip Dessert

After your Valentine’s Day dinner, satisfy your sweet tooth by saving dessert for the bedroom. If there’s any time of the year to rock a candy g-string, it’s Valentine’s Day. And dudes, there’s a matching set just for you. If you’re feeling artsy or want to wax poetic, you can write sweet nothings all over your partner’s body in rich, dark chocolate with this Shunga Chocolate Body Paint. It’s almost as fun to “erase” as it is to apply. For something more sensual and less sticky, try the Kama Sutra Honey Dust, an edible powder, made of pure honey, which comes in a satin pouch, complete with a feather applicator. Finally, when you’re ready to get down to business, try some Sliquid Swirl lube. The sugar-free, vegan, water-based formula comes in six delicious flavors, from Pink Lemonade to Cherry Vanilla.

Surrender Yourself

This Valentine’s Day, why not hand over the keys to your heart (and other parts) to your lover, partner, mistress or master? Whether you’re giving yourself for an evening, or a lifetime, a collar is a simple, elegant and sexy expression of submission. We love this Tear Drop Locking Collar, made with English Bridle leather and a “teardrop shaped” stainless steel ring. For an even more intimate surrender, lock up your cock, with the CB6000, a long-term male chastity device, made of medical grade plastic. It even comes with plastic locks for those tricky airport metal detectors! If you want to submit, but your partner is still new to BDSM, we recommend When Someone You Love is Kinky, a handbook for helping your lover understand the mysteries of the kinkster heart. Finally, you can’t go wrong with our Silk Entangle Ties, elegant ribbons for wrapping up the greatest gift of all– yourself!

Discover a New Position

Whether on the floor, or up against a door, Valentine’s Day is a great occasion to try some new positions. To get your imaginative juices flowing, check out the Position of the Day book. Packed and illustrated with 366 sexual positions (one for every day of the year, plus one extra for leap year), this handy manual has enough ideas to keep you getting busy until Valentine’s Day, 2012. For help negotiating all those new positions, try investing in a Liberator Wedge. This sturdy foam support wedge provides the lift and leverage to put you and your partner in all kinds of compromising positions. Its sexy microfiber cover is smooth against the skin and machine-washable. But, if you hate post-sex cleanup, perhaps you should move the action to the shower. The Sex in the Shower product line uses an ingenious array of suction cup handles and footrests for a safer, less slippery way to play with wet and wild sex. Finally, if you think you’ve tried it all, hoist ‘em high and try the Door Jam Sex Sling from Sportsheets. Made of comfy, padded nylon, this sling can be thrown over any sturdy door for spontaneous action, whenever the mood arises. No handyman needed. Unless that’s a part of your fantasy, too. (And who are we to judge?)

Play in Public

We’re not looking to get you arrested, but there are discrete ways to play in public, while enjoying the thrill of being discovered. After Valentine’s Day dinner, why not hit a nightclub, bar, or darkened movie theater and smuggle some toys in your pants? For discrete fun, nothing beats the Club Vibe. This discreet bullet vibe responds to ambient sound, which means it can be equally fun on a dance floor or in a crowded restaurant. If you want an even more interactive experience, try the BNaughty Unleashed Remote Control Bullet. A handy remote control with LED display allows you or your lover to choose up to 10 powerful pulsation settings. Sit across from your partner at the dinner table and turn it on, while she tries to conceal her excitement from the people around her. Or, if you want a toy that will give dual clitoral and G-Spot stimulation, try out the ever popular We Vibe 2. As a bonus, this toy can be worn during intercourse, so if you decide to risk public sex, in a backseat or a back alley, she’ll have a headstart on the fun. No matter what the gender of your Valentine, you can never go wrong with a butt toy. For a discrete anal thrill, try warming up an Njoy Pure Plug before setting out to the paint the town red. Made of silky-smooth stainless steel, these popular plugs fit snugly inside your butthole, giving an extra nudge to the prostate. This is especially fun during long walks on the beach or bouncy cab rides through the city. No matter how big a scene you decide to make, remember to tip generously, and make a fast getaway.
