Are you curious about polyamory but don’t know where to start? Reid Mihalko and Allison Moon will take you through the different ways you can make non-monogamous relationship work.

Blowjobs & Beyond with Reid Mihalko
Wednesday, October 16th @ 8-10pm FREE!

Want to have him squirming in his seat? Reid Mihalko will show you how to use your mouth, hands, and more to give mind-blowing blowjobs.

MichaelsJohnsonTantraPMIntroduction to Tantra with Patricia Johnson and Mark Michaels
Wednesday, October 23rd @ 8-10pm FREE!

Tantra uses sexual energy for consciousness expansion. In other words you can think whatever thoughts, use whatever implements, and be with whomever you wish, as long as that gets you into a highly charged erotic state. This is where the magic can begin to happen. Join Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, authors of “Great Sex Made Simple,” for an honest discussion in which they will dispel some of the popular myths surrounding this ancient tradition. You will learn that elements of Tantric philosophy and practice can be easily applied to our modern lives in ways that do more than simply improve our sexual experiences. This class is for all relationship styles, configurations and gender identities. Singles are welcome.

Porn Stars, Present & Future at Gloryhole: Nina Hartley®, Eddie Wood, & Betty Beaucoup

0

by thepleasurechest

Are you on the fence about whether to come to Gloryhole tonight? What if we reminded you that Nina Hartley® will be there?

For the last sneak peek before the party, we’re profiling the inimitable Nina Hartley® alongside two up-and-comers who will also be gracing the gloryhole this evening.

pink and black w_dressage

Twenty-eight years into her career as a public advocate for sexual self-awareness, sanity and literacy, Nina Hartley® is just hitting her stride.  An exhibitionist with a cause, she created a persona that was wholly new at its inception in 1983 but is now part of the broader cultural lexicon: “feminist porn star.”

Through the 650-plus video and film titles she has made, her two decades of dance tours and her thousands of personal appearances, she has become the most enduringly popular star in the history of the medium. Having been awarded virtually every honor her industry can bestow, Ms. Hartley takes her greatest satisfaction from a diverse fan base that cuts across demographics of age, race and gender.

Still in high demand as an on-screen talent in X-rated features, Ms. Hartley also co-produces her own line of instructional videos, Nina Hartley’s Guides, the market-leader in adult sex-education-video programming, currently in its thirty-eighth installment. She lectures on campuses across the country and has contributed extensively to anthologies regarding sex and feminism.

Ms. Hartley is the author of Nina Hartley’s Guide to Total Sex.

Earlier in the evening, Eddie Wood and Betty Beaucoup will be taking over the gloryhole with a performance that promises to be as adorable as their names and even hotter than their pictures. (Lucky you!)

eddie wood

Eddie Wood made his pornographic debut in Buck Angel’s AVN-nominated and Feminist Porn Award winner, Sexing the Transman (Vol. 1).  He likes squirting, spanking, and mommy-boy play. He is also half of queer/trans/leftist alternative rap duo, Umpire Brolesque.

betty beaucoup

Whether it’s tits, ass, or mouth, sexy triple threat Betty Beaucoup has a lot to offer. Queer, fat, and femme, Ms. Beaucoup truly puts the “galore” in g…lory hole!  She likes gender play, sucking cock, and being a (dirty) toy-slut.

You can find Nina Hartley®, Eddie Wood & Betty Beaucoup in the gloryhole tonight!

by thepleasurechest

We’re proud to have enticed the best performers out there to join us for Gloryhole tomorrow night. For example, sex expert Reid Mihalko and the ever-versatile AfroDisiac will each have a scene in the gloryhole itself.

Reid Mihalko surrounded by dils

Sex and relationship expert Reid Mihalko of www.ReidAboutSex.com helps adults create more self-esteem, self-confidence and greater health in their relationships and sex lives using an inspiring mixture of humor and knowledge.

Reid’s workshops and college lectures have been attended by close to 40,000 men and women. He has appeared in media such as Oprah’s Our America With Lisa Ling on OWN, the Emmy award-winning talk show Montel, Dr. Phil’s The Doctors on CBS, Bravo’s Miss Advised, Fox News, in Newsweek, Seventeen, GQ, The Washington Post, and in thirteen countries and at least seven languages.

Also, he is using a condom as a pocket square. Delightful.

afrodisiac

Who is AfroDisiac? She describes herself best: “Queen & King! Negress Unicorn, Comedian, Actress, Chef, Underwear Model, Designer, Bending, Fluid!”

As a performer she has been featured in Hella Brown by Feelmore510 Productions, Crash Pad, and  Public School by Cherry.JuiceBoxxx Productions.

You can find both Reid Mihalko and AfroDisiac in the gloryhole on the night of the party.

The Art of Sex: April Flores & Lucent Dossier at Gloryhole

2

by thepleasurechest

We’re thrilled to have these aesthetically-gifted performers back at Gloryhole. It makes us feel a little classier just to have them around.

April Flores HS

April Flores is a muse, performance artist, and model – but that’s not even scratching the surface. April is a fearless BBW star with scarlet hair, proponent of the queer community, feminist, sex-positive activist, outspoken advocate of body diversity, glamorous art model, and all around powerful woman. April has graced the covers of Bizarre and AVN Magazines, modeled for dozens of fine art photographers, appeared in countless adult films in every genre of the porn industry (from mainstream to queer to kinky to artsy), and spoken out about body image through her mere presence and powerful sexuality, along with her activism.

April will be in the gloryhole on the night of the party. When you’re not watching her, we recommend taking a walk around the party, where the roving performers of The Lucent Dossier Experience will be creating a carnival atmosphere.

Lucent Dossier Salton Adam Stilts Bird copy

Would you like to wander beyond the surreal and dare to cross the boundaries of your dreams? Lucent Dossier paints a secret map that will entice you into sacred portals: come adventure with them. Witness magic unfolding; let your perception be stretched into the infinite; be raised into sensual bliss.

To attend, RSVP by emailing gloryhole@thepleasurechest.com.
