Dance for Us!

by Kate M.

tempouberlube

Update: Congratulations to Sand, who won the Tempo by doing the Single Ladies dance! Thanks to everyone who took a moment to stop and dance. Keep an eye out for great prizes from Tantus and Chakrubs this month. 

We’re giving away two – two! – exciting prizes to wrap up Anal August: an Aneros Tempo and a bottle of Uberlube

Enjoy stainless steel anal stimulation with the Tempo. Strategically-placed knobs trigger the natural rhythms of your inner and outer sphincters causing your to quiver with joy. Use water to heat it up or cool it off, when you’re in the mood for temperature play. It’s like a work of art, for your butt!

Since the Tempo is made of stainless steel, it’s safe to use with Uberlube, one of our great loves. This superior silicone lubricant lasts! The soft and silky formula is enriched with Vitamin E, keeping skin healthy and moisturized. Plus, the name is etched into the bottle – no sticky label that peels off the second you spill any lube. 

Want to win this winning combo? Here’s how. 

We just want you to dance. Do a little dance wherever you are – at home, in your office chair at work, waiting for the bus – and then post a comment below letting us know that you did. (You’re on the honor system. If you can’t dance right now and you still post a comment, we forgive you, as long as you know that you owe us a dance.)

We’ll pick a winner at random on Monday, September 1st at noon PDT.

U.S. residents only.

So You Want to Try Anal?

0

by Kate M.

pinup

The following article was written by Carly, one of our Sex Specialists, and originally published on her blog, Carnal Curiosities

Anal sex can be a fun new activity for people. The taboo nature of it, is a thrill in itself. Ultimately the area is full of nerves that will get engorged when we get aroused so it is a pleasure center in the body. Contrary to popular belief, anal sex should NEVER. EVER. hurt. There are plenty of tips out there to distract from the pain, but the pain is your body’s way of telling you to slow down, or try something new.

Anal sex should never ever hurt. Period.

lusciousThe best place to start is with some erotica. The brain is our largest sex organ. Getting your juices flowing by reading some erotica is a really fantastic way to get in the mood. This can be done solo or you can take turns reading to each other if you’re in a relationship. There are some great butt sex erotica collections. Such as Luscious: Stories of Anal Eroticism or Baby got Back: Anal Erotica. So relaxing in a nice warm bath, with a scented candle will help relax your body and mind and get you turned on. My favorite candle is the JimmyJane Afterglow Candles. They burn at a low temperature so you can pour the warm oil directly onto your skin from the candle or into the bath for some aromatherapy.

Now that you’re excited to put things in your butt and turned on and relaxed lets quickly touch on the “dirty” factor that keeps some people away from anal play. There are some enema bulbs that are nice and simple. Simply insert the nozzle, squeeze, and remove the nozzle, then expel the room temperature water. You can do this a few times until the water runs clear. Then just give yourself 20 minutes to 2 hours to let the tissue heal a bit. Whenever you feel comfortable. Just listen to your body. Ultimately we are adults and listening to our body is going to give us clues. Poop isn’t stored in the rectum so it usually isn’t an issue, the enema will get rid of any particles left over but we know when our stomach is upset and we can feel when we have to go. So if you feel that way then maybe right then isn’t the time to explore your nether region.

rippleSo now you’re turned on, relaxed, prepped. Now what? If you’re with a partner some rimming, or the act of using the tongue and mouth on the anus, is a great warm up. If you’re alone, using fingers and warming up the area and exploring that way is a good start. One of my favorite toys is the Tantus Ripple. It is a silicone toy so you don’t have to worry about it absorbing any bacteria, you can boil it for a few minutes to sanitize it. But washing it with mild antibacterial soap or a toy cleaner will keep it safe to use in the body. The reason besides it being silicone that it is one of my favorite butt toys is that the beads gradually get bigger so you can do some exploration with what you can fit. If you can only get one or two in, that’s fine. Take your time and get used to it. Anal sex isn’t a race with a finish line, just getting one bead in might be enough stimulation for you. If you do get multiple beads in and use it in a penetrative motion the way your sphincter flexes around the toy actually mimics the way the sphincter moved when you orgasm so it feels really great. The best part of the Ripple is that the base of it is flat so you can throw a vibrator at the base of it and feel it transmit all the way through. The Je Joule Mimi Soft Vibrator is a favorite to use with the ripple because the flat shape lays nicely and transmits their really unique deep rumbly vibration through the ripple. If you’re a woman exploring anal sex then you can even use the vibrator on your clit to help relax you and distract from any uncomfort you might feel.
pjur backdoorThe most important thing you can have with anal exploration is Lube. There is never too much lube with anal sex. The butt does not self lubricate. And you never want to enter the back door without lube. Rips, tears and a whole host of problems will come without the use of lube. Pjur has a great anal lube, it’s a silicone lube that contains some jojoba, which is a natural muscle relaxer. Silicone lube is a great option for anal sex, but only with skin to skin contact, or with gloves/dental dams/ or condoms. Silicone lube should never be used with a silicone toy because the two bind together and make the toy fall apart. Silicone is great for anal play because it doesn’t get absorbed into the skin, so not having to reapply is really great for anal play. Hybrid lube for silicone toys is a great option. It’s a water based lube, with a small amount of silicone to keep it nice and slick without having enough silicone to ruin a silicone toy. Sliquid Silk is one of my favorites. The brand doesn’t contain any chemicals to harm the body. It’s one of the most gentle lubes for your body.

Would You Use Marijuana Lube?

0

by Kate M.

foria

Because it exists now.

Foria is a lube made with cannabis and coconut oils, specifically designed to be used and absorbed vaginally. (An anal lube is in the works.) While Foria will only get you high-high if you ingest it – and you can – it should have some effect on anyone who uses it. Folks who have tested the product so far have reported a variety of results, including warming and tingling sensations, greater sensitivity, and feeling engorged. Sounds pretty good to us.

Currently, Foria is available in California to folks with a physician’s recommendation. But how about the future? If we could carry it, would you be excited to try it?

Fisting Public Art Prank In Detroit

1

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.

The Power of Lard

by thepleasurechest

lube

The Herndon Climb is an annual tradition at the Annapolis Naval Academy in which members of the freshmen class, AKA “plebes,” climb a lard-covered monument to retrieve the Plebe ‘dixie cup’ hat and replace it with an upperclassmen’s hat, marking the end of wearing freshman headgear and moving up to headgear more like a U.S. Naval officer.

A likely story. To us, this looks like an amazing demonstration of the superior slipperiness of oil-based lubricants. Anyways, you’ll want to take a minute to enjoy the rest of the photos from this naval tradition.

The Best Gifts For Guys

0

by thepleasurechest

Think sex toys are just for women? You’re in for a surprise. And so is he if you give him something sexy for the holidays. Here are some of our favorite toys for boys…

Fun Factory Cobra Libre
High tech gadgets are a dime a dozen during the holidays. But this is probably the only “penis head stimulator” you’ll find under the tree! Fun Factory’s innovative Cobra Libre is waterproof, rechargeable and allows you to choose from a seemingly endless variety of escalating, pulsing, thumping, buzzing and wavelike sensations. Plus, it looks like a race car!
$149.95
Tenga Flip Hole
Sometimes the best gifts are the most mysterious. From the outside, the Tenga Flip Hole looks like a futuristic flashlight or modernist paperweight. Open it up and you’ll discover an ultra-soft masturbation sleeve with a totally unique tunnel full of stimulating nubs, curves and ridges. Easy to clean and fun for both solo and partner play.
$99.95
 
Velv’Or J’Naja Cock Ring
There are so many cock rings to choose from, but here’s a ring to rule them all. This elegant, ergonomic ring is made from a unique nylon fiber, cozy enough to be worn all day. It’s also got a curved nub that gently and firmly massages the perineum for enhanced pleasure.
$54.95
Duet Vibrating Cockring
If you believe it is better to give and receive, you can’t go wrong with this vibrating ring. The Duet has two vibes– one below to buzz his balls and perineum, and one on top to satisfy his partner. The soft, stretchy elastomer surface is covered in pleasing nubs for added excitement.
$44.95
SpareParts Pete Trunks
If your partner is trans, a pair of packing underwear may be just the right fit. SpareParts makes a range of garments for packing, but we’re partial to the Pete Trunks, a sexy set of boxer briefs, specially designed to securely hold a packer. They’re made of a lightweight, breathable material and can be worn comfortably under daily clothes.
$39.95
Sidekick Sleeve
Here’s a great stocking stuffer for the horny dude on your gift list. This super-stretchy masturbation sleeve is amazingly versatile. The reversible design allows him to choose between a smooth and slick stroke or a ridge-filled ride. The open-ended design means you can play too.
$13.95
Liquid Silk Lubricant
If you plan to play over the holidays, it’s best to keep some lube on hand. We love Liquid Silk because it looks and feels just like male ejaculate. It’s a favorite among trans guys and folks who enjoy gender play. Creamy, long lasting and glycerin-free.
$1.95-$18.95

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”.

Best Toys for Holiday Travel

0

by thepleasurechest

As the holidays approach, we’ve fielded many of your questions about tips for traveling with sex toys.

Will my chastity belt show up on a body scan?

Can I pack electro-stim toys in a carryon?

Do I have to remove my buttplug? 

There so many stumpers that we fired off a letter to the TSA with a list of burning questions. We haven’t heard back from them yet, but when we do, we’ll share their answers right here.  In the meantime, here are some of the best products for travel.

Travel-size Lube!

You probably know that any bottle of liquid that contains more than 3.4oz. is prohibited in a carryon. But who wants to take big bottles of lube and pour them into smaller containers? Here’s one solution: sample packets! This Sliquid Naturals Lube Cube contains 14 single servings of natural water-based lube. As a bonus, you can try out each of their delicious flavors. Or if you prefer a flavor-free lube, try our very own Pleasure Chest Intimate Touch Personal Lubricant, which comes in a 2oz. pump bottle. It’s the perfect amount for that long holiday weekend.

 

A Discreet Vibrator

There are many vibrators which will fly under the radar of prying parents and eagle-eyed airport security alike. One of the most affordable solutions is a small pocket vibrator. The aptly-named Tantus Little Secret is a tiny, sensational bullet vibe with a simple, silicone sleeve. It’s so small, it can even fit in your pocket. Choose from three fun designs. If you’re feeling in a James Bond mood, try the Grrl Toyz Incognito Lipstick Vibe, a discreet clitoral vibrator disguised as a tube of lipstick! If you’re craving something fancier, the Jimmyjane Little Chroma is a slender metal vibrator with a replaceable motor! It’s also waterproof, for bathtub play. Check out our complete selection of discreet vibrators.

Toys with Travel Locks!

No matter how well you pack your private sex toys, the contents of a bag will sometimes shift. And if the stars are aligned in a certain way, or if Murphy’s Law is in effect, your vibrator will suddenly get turned on and start buzzing wildly. To avoid the embarrassment of vibrating luggage, many high-end toys now have a travel lock. One of our favorites is the gorgeous Lelo Isla, a silicone luxury vibe with a unique shape. It’s also got a whisper quiet motor, very handy for discreet play while staying with relatives. If a rechargeable toy with a travel lock is not in your budget, you can always just remove the batteries!

 

Traveling While Kinky

If your tastes are a bit kinkier, there are some extra obstacles to traveling with your toys. We suggest you leave the heavy equipment at home and travel light. Our Silk Entangle Ties are perfect for quick, comfortable bondage, and will pass undetected through any inspection, official or otherwise. Whether you’re staying in your aunt’s guest room or the Motel 6, you never know whether you’ll have decent bedposts for a bondage scenario. That’s why we suggest bringing along this Under the Bed Restraint System, which uses nylon straps and velcro restraints to turn any mattress into a spontaneous bondage bed.

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.
