UPDATE- 2/27

We’ve only had a few entries so far in this contest, so we’ve decided to extend the deadline to Monday, March 5th. If you’ve been planning to participate, you now have an extra week to get your submissions to us! 

The world is a weird and wonderful place. That’s the conclusion we’ve reached after reading through dozens of strange and head-scratching search phrases that mysteriously delivered people to our blog. We’ve already collected our previous favorites in three popular posts (1/2/3). Usually we illustrate the best of these with photos of adorable cats, but this time we’re trying something different.

The Contest

Can you draw or paint? Are you a Photoshop or MS Paint whiz?

Here is your challenge: interpret and illustrate one or more of the search phrases below. Then post the finished product into the comments thread or send your submission via email to
mattc@thepleasurechest.com
. We’ll award a We-Vibe 3 to the artist who sends our favorite submission. We’ll also award some cool prizes to the runners up.  Enter as many times as you like. We’ll pick our winners on February 27th (in one week), so be sure to get your art to us before then.

Sound like fun? Read the phrases below and get your creative juices flowing.

Your fearless ride leaders and the bumpin’ beats of the bicycle boombox will enable you to hear us wherever we go. If you’re planning to enjoy the afterparty at the store, be prepared to lock your bike outside or pack it in your vehicle before joining us for the festivities.

Ambiguously Gay Muppets, Sexy Superheroes & Cuddling with John Stamos

2

by thepleasurechest

During all the fuss over Anal August, we’ve been neglecting our weekly link roundup. Here’s a curated recap of our feed from the past few weeks.

  • With gay marriage legal in New York, many couples are finally tying the knot. This NYT slideshow of gay weddings made us very happy.

Just friends.

  • While gay activists continue to push for nationwide marriage equality, some cheeky folks started a campaign to let Sesame Street‘s Bert and Ernie get married. In response to the controversy, Sesame Street issued a statement asserting that Bert and Ernie are just friends, and furthermore, simply puppets! We say, leave the Muppets alone. But we’d love to see a campaign to get C-3PO to make an honest droid out of R2-D2.
  • Speaking of Star Wars, if you’ve got the hots for Luke Skywalker, here’s a must read on The do’s & dont’s of dating Mark Hamill.
  • What if male superheroes in comic books were posed like Wonder Woman? The result would probably look something like this.  Sexy!
  • Another sexy superhero: DallasVoice.com unmasked Zimmer Barnes, a gay crimefighter whose New York Initiative fights homophobia in the Big Apple.

  • Want to tighten your abs and strengthen your quads? Nah, us neither. But we could watch this 80s workout video all day.
  • Vice asked: Is anyone out there missing a bag of sex toys? 

  • We don’t want to kill your Anal August buzz, but Queerty had this reminder that sodomy is still illegal in 18 states.
  • “Right now, in one of the largest cities in the country, a six-foot-wide pair of white panties dominates one of the city’s most visible public spaces.” So begins this pithy piece of art criticism about a ginormous statue of Marilyn Monroe recently, um, erected in Chicago’s Pioneer Court.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H

  • Postmodern Barney found these awesome vintage men’s underwear ads.
  • The Seattle Weekly profiled a blind man who was prosecuted for illegally downloading porn.
  • Vice published Richard Kern’s unusual photos of naked young women and their prescription meds.
  • Gizmodo reported on the Viberect,  a new FDA-approved male vibrator, which resembles a set of salad tongs. Tossing a salad will never be the same again.
  • An anonymous writer in New York  recounted a week of hot sex with her boyfriend. Their sexual marathon included a trip to the New York branch of The Pleasure Chest, which she called “a candy store of fucking.”

  • This woman helpfully defined 30 paraphilias in 5 minutes. Collect ‘em all.
  • Scientists reported on new brain scan data which maps womens’ orgasmic response, and found to no one’s surprise, that nipples are an erogenous zone.
  • Researchers in the Netherlands claimed that our romantic partners are not as hot as we think. They theorized that such “positive illusions” help keep relationships stable.
  • A survey from the University of Rhode Island said that four out of five teenagers are sexting. In our day, we had to write dirty messages on Post-It notes.
  • Another study of American teens found that boys who masturbate are more likely to practice safe sex. Wait, there are boys who don’t masturbate?
  • A study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior claimed that men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to cheat on their partners.
  • A reader at Psychology Today asked “Who Invented the Blowjob?” The answer: Bonobos or barnacles, probably. (h/t Violet Blue)

Balls in your court.

  • The New York Observer noted a recent uptick in testicle-related litigation in American courtrooms.

Trick or treat? Hips or lips?

  • A reader at Dangerous Minds dug up this unlikely Al Pacino leatherdaddy costume from the notorious 1980 thriller Cruising.
  • John Stamos taught us how to cuddle.

  • Finally, Channel 6 Action News reported on a local man with too many cats.
