Something Sweet at Gloryhole (Sweet Beats & Diamondback Annie)

1

by thepleasurechest

We can’t wait for Gloryhole! To get you as pumped up as we are, we’ll be giving you sneak peeks of some of the performers in the time leading up to the event. Let’s start with dessert.

SweetBeats

Sweet Beats ice cream truck, featuring DJ Sweet Beats & DJ Potira

We’re so excited to be hosting the Sweet Beats truck again this year. They play music and also give you ice cream. 

Sweet Beats is a rhythmic calling spun by DJ Sweet Beats (aka Ginger Marianne Matsuura). Her hypnotic sound is upbeat and will get the crowd dancing with a mix of genres from disco, funk, house, old school, and hip-hop.

The origins of DJ Sweet Beats are humble, but also true to the belief that good music should be shared and not confined to one place. Remembering the delightful sounds of an ice-cream truck blasting through the neighborhood and the promise for something sweet, she wanted to capture the same anticipation and delight when the source of that music was revealed. From that sense of nostalgia, the Sweet Beats truck was born.

DJPotira

Blending eclectic Brazilian beats with urban underground cultures, DJ Potira believes the natural fit of all different types of music, and her Brazilian background help her read any audience, whether it’s to get a venue jumping or to set the mood to an art gallery cocktail reception, this skill has allowed her to spin at many different venues and shows including events sponsored by Teen Vogue, Elle Magazine, and Chanel.

Potira is known for mixing up a very eclectic set with many genres of music. She has developed her own style, seamlessly blending classic Hip-Hop beats wedged between Samba rhythms and Cuíca Drums.

Diamondback Annie - Soda Jerk 4

If, however, you prefer your ice cream prepared in someone’s jockstrap, Diamondback Annie can help with that. 

Rock & roll showgirl Diamondback Annie is America’s most badass burlesque star. Since winning Best Debut at the 2005 Burlesque Hall of Fame competition, she has headlined events worldwide as a solo artist with her signature blend of striptease and arena rock.

Based in Los Angeles, she was a member of The Velvet Hammer – the troupe credited with originating the burlesque revival – and currently performs with the long-running Mexican wrestling and burlesque show Lucha VaVoom.

You’ll be able to find Diamondback Annie at the Lap Dance Roulette Station.

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.
