by thepleasurechest

Pete "Commando"

This week, we unpacked a very special shipment from our friends at SpareParts HardWear.

Meet Pete, a unique line of underwear, designed to keep your packer in place. Pairing form and function, Pete offers the perfect fit for packing. It’ll accommodate most packers, regardless of size or brand. The multi-panel design, stretchy opening and elastic strap ensure stability throughout the day, until you’re ready to slip off your pants and play.

Like the revolutionary dildo harnesses from SpareParts, Pete is made of flexible, breathable, machine-washable material. And with sizes ranging from small to 3X, there’s a Pete to fit most any body.

Pete "Briefs"

Pete comes in four sexy cuts. You can go Commando (pictured above), rock the traditional briefs (pictured to the right), slip on some trunks or even go Freestyle– a design that keeps your packer front and center in a sexy sheath. Now that you’ve met Pete, why not get more acquainted?

The Winners Of Our Fun Factory Duke Giveaway

0

by thepleasurechest

We didn’t get too many entries in our contest to win the Fun Factory Duke, but the ones we got were very detailed. While an apparently large part of our readership seems intimidated by the Duke’s unique design, those who did participate in the contest, seemed eager to be, uh, entered.

The winner, chosen at random, from among a dozen entries is Ryan from New York City! Ryan describes himself as a bisexual ex-Mormon, who was inducted into the pleasures of prostate play by a patient partner. Here’s his account of his first experience:

“At first it was a bit strange but then I could feel this crazy energy building…as I got closer to orgasm it became more and more intense..just when I thought I was going to blow, I didn’t..building, building then BAM!*!@@$** fireworks, stars, lightning, angels singing, sheet tearing WOW! The most amazing and long lasting orgasm I’ve ever experienced in my life. At the risk of over-share (if we’re not there already haha) I don’t shoot much further than my stomach/chest but this time (from the foot of the bed) I managed to hit the wall above the headboard with almost every shot. All of this without EVER touching my penis. I was completely exhausted afterwards. I wouldn’t have believed it if it didn’t happen to me. Amazing!”

It sounds like the Duke will fit nicely into Ryan’s, uh, repertoire! And, since he mentioned it, we just want to assure Ryan and the rest of our readers that it’s impossible to over-share with us. We love all the juicy details. Otherwise, we’d be working at a Starbucks or something.

The runner up prize goes to our favorite entry, submitted by Plastic Robot, also of New York City. Where the Tin Man needed a heart to feel whole, Plastic Robot just needs a Duke to fill his hole. We didn’t realize robots even had anuses, much less prostates, until we read this amazing testimonial.

“I have known for some time that an important part of me is missing. I have had some upgrades to my endoskeleton and even to my programming, this year, but still that feeling lingered. When I laid my eyes upon the beautiful matte silicone of this unit, there was a sensation in my circuits that told me this was the perfect fit. I feel certain that installation of the Fun Factory Duke would complete my assimilation to a fully functional pleasure-bot and I am sure that activation of this unit would compel me to sing the praises of Pleasure Chest, without even requiring autotune. Thank You for your kind consideration.”

Congratulations, robot friend. You win the $20 Pleasure Chest gift card. That’s not enough credit for a Duke, but it should keep you in lube for the next few months. Robot pro tip: Don’t use silicone lube on your sexy silicone skin. Malfunction!

Thanks to everyone who participated and over-shared!

Put Up Your Dukes! Win Fun Factory’s Unique Prostate Toy.

13

by thepleasurechest

“Healthy, lusty sex is wonderful.” – John Wayne (The Duke)

Hey fellas, are you looking for the right toy to experience P-spot joy? Whether you’re a butt beginner or an advanced anal player, there’s no ifs, ands or butts about it– you’ll wanna give the Fun Factory Duke a try.

At first glance, the Duke doesn’t look like your typical butt plug or prostate stimulator. That’s because of its unique shape, designed with an extra bulge that cradles the prostate and offers a fuller feeling than other butt toys.

As our staff reviewer Mike described it:

“The wrap around shape of this toy gives a strong prostate massage with the one side hitting the perineum and the inserted side resting directly on it. I felt the back and forth pulsation of both sides, and it was awesome. That extra part fills up your ass making it feel like you have a lot more going on up there than your typical prostate massager. My orgasm was intense and lasted longer than normal.”

Fun Factory has also made this toy of its usual high quality silicone, so it’s soft, body safe and easy to wash. Best of all, the Duke vibrates! It’s got a powerful vibe with 3 speeds and 8 different pulse patterns. It charges up with Fun Factory’s unique magnetic charger (kinda like the one on newfangled Macbooks).

Wanna Duke it out? Well, we’re giving one of these bad boys away to one lucky reader.

The Contest

Tell us why you want The Duke! Simply post a comment on this here blog, explaining why the Duke is the perfect fit for you or your partner’s bum. Be creative. Be explicit. Tell us about your anal adventures and aspirations. Female-bodied folks are also welcome to play. The Duke is an equal opportunity toy. You don’t need to use your real name, but please supply an email address so we can contact you.

On Monday, March 28th at 11PM PST, we’ll pick one entry at random.

Retweet to increase your odds!

Tweet about the contest, linking to this post, and be entered twice (so to speak.) Be sure to paste a link to your tweet in your comment, so we can count it!

Our favorite answer wins a gift card!

We love hearing your stories. We’re kinda pervy like that. So, if your entry is especially funny, original or well written, you’ll win a $20 gift card to the Pleasure Chest.

Good luck!

My Alien Friend: The Man Eater Reviewed

1

by thepleasurechest

"Take me to your wiener!"

A few months ago, we ran a poll on this blog, asking if you’d let the Man Eater near your pole. This one-eyed, green space monster with a taste for human cock went down in defeat. But I remained curious. So, I asked for a specimen and abducted the Man Eater to run some tests back at my own private Area 51. Would I make a new friend like Elliot in E.T.? Or would this become an alien autopsy? Here’s what I discovered.

The Man Eater is actually pretty cool! He looks and feels like one of those collectible toys you see prominently displayed in the home of a comic book nerd or sci-fi fan. This is also part of his appeal. Assuming you keep him clean and wipe the come off his mouth, this little alien should fly under the radar of most of the terrestrial visitors to your house. He simply doesn’t look like a sex toy. The downside, of course, is that people, especially curious kids, might think he looks cool and want to pick him up and play with him. Keep the Man Eater on a high shelf if you know what’s good for you!

Just like Tickle Me Elmo, the Man Eater vibrates when you push his belly. And while the low setting is pretty worthless, the middle and top speeds are pretty damned strong. Vibration is a relatively new experience for me. Most vibrators are made and designed for women. There are exceptions– many vibes can be used anally or against the perineum for prostate stimulation– but, except for the Fun Factory Cobra Libre, there just aren’t that many vibrating toys made exclusively for male masturbation. So, at first, I just held the Man Eater’s open mouth against the underside of my cock, making sure to hit the glans. With a generous dab of lube, the area got even more sensitive, and the sensation became very pleasurable. Rather than feeling numb, all the little nerve endings felt awake and ready to party.

Even though it felt good to have the Man Eater humming against the underside of my penis, I didn’t feel like I would ever come from vibration alone. That’s when I decided to tilt my cock upwards against my belly and actually stroke the underside of my shaft with his open mouth. I’m sure I looked ridiculous, with my hand cupping the back of the Man Eater’s head, as he bobbed up and down along my penis. But I didn’t care, because the Man Eater was really working for me! The contour of his “mouth” felt really nice, in combination with the vibration. The hardness of the ABS plastic and PVC material actually helped create enough pressure to bring me to an unidentified flying orgasm!

That material also makes the Man Eater waterproof and easy to clean. After he made sweet love to me, I brought my new friend into the shower and cleaned him off with some soap and hot water. He dried on the shower caddy overnight, and was ready to be put in a safe hiding place the next morning.

While the Man Eater isn’t likely to take over the planet just yet, he’s a surprisingly effective toy given his humble asking price. He runs off of two AA batteries, cleans up well for company and feeds exclusively on your penis. I think I’ll keep him.

Get Out of the Toolbox & Into the Toybox

1

by thepleasurechest

A story in Salon over the weekend, confirms what we at the Pleasure Chest have known for awhile now– men buy vibrators! The article focuses exclusively on men purchasing toys to use with a female partner, ignoring that couples of all genders and orientations use vibrators to enhance their sex lives. Here’s the gist of it:

It’s only recently that sex toys became an accepted symbol of a man’s sexual prowess. Once upon a time, vibrators were seen as posing a threat to masculinity — something that might outperform, maybe even replace, men in the bedroom. But now they’re seen as a useful item in a guy’s toolbox, and many see them as no more emasculating than a power drill. It’s not like 20-somethings are carrying around pocket vibes like condoms, but men are increasingly open to sharing the bed with them.

We agree! But while the article makes some good points, it also reinforces male fixations about sexual performance, and ignores an even more growing trend– dudes are buying vibrators to get themselves off.

Penis Vibrators

In addition to masturbation sleeves like those made by Tenga and Fleshlight, there’s a new breed of vibes vying to grab a piece of the male market. A few months ago we told you about the Cobra Libre, a vibrating masturbation toy that looks like a race car or an old school electric shaver.

Fun Factory Cobra Libre

The Cobra Libre is waterproof, rechargeable and made of soft, body-safe silicone. The inside of the sleeve is designed with all the right contours, and the motor has three speeds, and multiple pulsation patterns. This is a long way from masturbating with a tube sock!

A cheaper and goofier alternative to the Cobra Libre is the Maneater, a vibrating masturbation toy, designed to look like a one-eyed green alien. Unlike the Cobra Libre, you don’t actually insert your penis in the toy. Instead, you use the curved surface of the open “mouth” to rub your cock while the three speeds of vibration add to the stimulation.

Cheeky Boy

Vibrating Anal Toys

Just as boys are discovering the joys of vibration, they’re also learning to love their butts. Anal toys are more popular than ever, and many of the latest add vibration to the mix. As straight guys begin to realize that putting things in your butt doesn’t make you gay, toy companies are beginning to tap that, uh, untapped market. The Cheeky Boy is one of many anal toys that offer P-spot (prostate) stimulation with a little extra buzz. The anal “beads” make a curved line directly for the prostate, while the outer part of the toy presses against the perineum. Once the bullet vibe is switched on, the user can enjoy “rocking” the Cheeky Boy for an explosive orgasm, that no simple handjob could create.

Vibrators for Couples

If he has someone to play with, there are a number of vibrating toys, designed to get him off while offering stimulation to his partner. The most common is the vibrating cockring. Tantus makes one of the best vibrating cockrings around. The high quality silicone conducts vibrations throughout the whole ring, not just at the site of the vibe. The vibrator can be turned upward to offer clitoral stimulation during intercourse, or downward to stimulate the balls and shaft during masturbation.

We Vibe

The latest innovation in vibrators for partner sex is the We Vibe. Specifically made to be worn by a woman during intercourse, the We Vibe’s unique design actually has lots of applications for people of all bodies and genders. When used vaginally, the We Vibe offers separate vibration to both the clitoris and the G-spot while leaving room for penetration. It’s  a rechargeable, silicone vibrator that enhances pleasure for both partners, without getting in the way of intercourse.

It Shouldn’t Feel Like Work!

As you can probably see, we think that Salon‘s “toolbox” analogy is too work-oriented. Men shouldn’t think of vibrators as tools to fix their sex lives nor should they think of themselves as handymen in the bedroom (unless they enjoy that kind of roleplay.)

We prefer the toybox idea, because of its focus on the mutual expressions of imagination, creativity and pleasure. As men become less fixated on performance and more focused on enjoyment, we expect to see even more toys designed for boys and their bits.
