Sam Rosenthal Reads from “Rye”Los Angeles- December 10th

0

by thepleasurechest

Join us on Monday, December 10th from 8pm to 9:30pm  at our West Hollywood store for an evening with Sam Rosenthal, reading from his new book Rye.

Brooklyn-based musician Rosenthal turns erotic novelist within the pages of Rye, a steamy, snarky and sensitive walk on the wild side.

Rye is a money-shot across the bow of outdated sensibilities. It takes a sexual somersault through the complexities of desire in a penetrating portrayal of twenty-first century intimacy.

Forty-year-old video artist and father Matt is seeing Rye, a willful and free androgynous thirty-one-year-old school teacher. Attracted to Matt’s kinkiness and groundedness, Rye develops a fetish for his cock and her submission. At a weekend SexxCamp retreat, Matt meets Rain, a snarky twenty-three-year old GenderQueer woman with both an attraction and aversion to sex. The unconventional sex-triangle develops as Matt expands his understanding of his own complexity and desire for connection.

Sam Rosenthal will be reading select passages, answering questions, signing books and hanging out at this free event. Come!

About the author

For the past twenty-six years, Sam Rosenthal has been the lyricist for the underground rock band Black Tape For A Blue Girl. Their ten self-released albums have sold to tens of thousands of fans around the world. The band’s fans include filmmaker David Lynch and actress Sasha Grey. Sam’s 1996 debut novel, The First Pain to Linger, sold through its limited printing and is now a sought-after collector’s item.

More on Rye

Rye is available in paperback or for your Kindle. It’s GenderQueer, poly, kinky, sex-positive, top-bottom… all kinds of good stuff! Not intended for minors or squares. Read an excerpt from Rye on Amazon or at the book’s website.

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”.

Repin to Win an Aneros Vice

0

by thepleasurechest

  • The vibrator adds an incredible new dimension to sex. My wife loves the buzzing she feels from my erection. It helps push her over the edge. I find that the vibe makes dry orgasms feel like wet ones and it triggers intense super-Os even when I’m flaccid.”
  • Honestly, it felt like a bomb went off in my pelvis. i could feel all the muscles in my body radiating in waves toward my pelvis, like it was feeding it energy.”
  • Had several mini Os, one moderate O with a few spasms of legs, and then I relaxed and let the Aneros do the rest until I got good and hard and finished off with very little stimulation of my penis to a great, hot (as in all over warmth of body), wet orgasm with very warm sensations traveling up my penis.

These are just a few testimonials by users of the Aneros Vice, which won an AVN award for “Outstanding Male Product Design” of 2011.

It’s easy to see why. In addition to Aneros’ legendary anatomical design, the Vice is made of velvety silicone. And did we mention that it also vibrates? The Vice’s removable stainless steel bullet vibe has three different pulse patterns delivered at three levels of intensity. The toy is girthy enough to be enjoyed vaginally too.

Repin to Win

Want to win a Vice of your very own? We’re giving one away– on Pinterest!

Simply follow us and go to this Vice pin. Then simply re-pin for a chance to win! We’ll pick one entry at random on Friday at 3pm PST.

Good luck!

What Are You Reading? Tell Us & Win a Syn! (UPDATED- 8/27)

34

by thepleasurechest

UPDATE: Congratulations to Mabel, who was randomly selected to win the Aneros Helix Syn. We hope you enjoy it as much as you enjoyed the 50 Shades trilogy! Also, congrats to David who won the $20 gift card. We hope you use it to buy something that’ll take your mind off that menacing air conditioner. Thanks to everyone who entered and shared their summer reading suggestions with us. 

We’re huge fans of the Aneros product line. With their anatomical design and engineer-grade plastic, Aneros toys are comfortable, safe and proven to hit the spot. But nothing really prepared us for the Helix Syn.

Based on their popular Helix toy, the Syn has got what Aneros calls “an aggressive curve” which cradles and massages the prostate from top to bottom. You don’t even need strong Kegel muscles, because the Syn does all the work. It’s also coated with a velvety silicone material that feels great. The same soft material covers the P-tab which rests against (and gently thumps) the perineum, so the Syn doesn’t pinch your skin. The Syn has a narrow head that slips in with even a small amount of water-based lube, and it’s small enough that you can wear it during intercourse or for discreet fun anywhere. Though it’s advertised as a prostate massager, it would be a great anal toy for female-bodied folks too. It just feels good. And it has a lot of fans.

Want to Win a Syn?

We’re giving away a Syn to one lucky reader. Simply post a comment below telling us what you’re reading this summer. Whether you’ve got Fifty Shades fever or are plowing through War & Peace, we want to know what you’re reading (besides this blog, of course.) Books, magazines and websites are all acceptable. Post a link if you like.

On Monday, August 27th, we’ll pick one person at random to win the Syn. We also award a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card to the person who submits our favorite summer reading suggestion. It pays to be creative.

This is a discreet contest, so you don’t need to use your real name, but please provide a working email address, so we can contact you. Good luck!

I experienced a 40 minute orgasm using the Tempo.”- another Tempo fan.
