Threesomes for Everyone!

0

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.

Fisting Public Art Prank In Detroit

by thepleasurechest

crisco

Detroit filed for bankruptcy almost two weeks ago, inspiring local artist Jerry Vile to deliver a little comic relief. Witness “Vessel of Hope,” in which the prankster placed an enormous can of Crisco next to the city’s iconic Joe Louis Fist Statue. The clueless folks at Detroit’s Fox 2 reported that Vile hopes his work “may in someway ease the pain of having the Detroit bankruptcy shoved into our faces.” Well played, Mr. Vile.

If you’d like to learn more about fisting, come check out our free workshop, Advanced Anal Play on August 28th, with Damon Holzum in Los Angeles and Sarah Sloane in Chicago.
