What Lesbians Think About Penises

0

by thepleasurechest

Please enjoy this video interviewing lesbians about their feelings on penises.


Previously, they interviewed gay men on vaginas.

Both of these videos are amusing, but we also wonder what kinds of responses they would have gotten if they’d talked to trans folks or people with trans partners.

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”.

by thepleasurechest

UPDATE: Congratulations to Tony D. who was randomly chosen to win the Sasha. And to Zara for winning the Pleasure Chest gift card. Thanks to everyone who entered!

Looking for lingerie that doubles as a dildo harness? Meet Sasha, the latest innovation from our friends at SpareParts Hardwear.

Sasha combines the elegance of high end lingerie with the superior strength and design of a classic harness. This soft, sexy garment can be worn as a pair of booty shorts or as high cut panties with a simple cinch of its ribbons. You can even use the detachable garters to pair with your favorite stockings.

SpareParts Sasha

On the hardware side, Sasha has a durable stretchy O-ring that’ll accommodate most dildos, a strap for packers and two pouches suitable for stowing bullet vibes. You can wear it under your clothing or on its own, and always be ready for action.

Want to Win a Sasha of Your Own? 

We’re giving away a Sasha to one lucky reader of this blog. Simply post a comment below telling us why you want the Sasha.

On Friday, September 28th, we’ll pick one entry at random to receive the Sasha. We’ll also award a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card to the person who submits our favorite answer, so please don’t hold back. Good luck!
