UPDATE: Congratulations to Angel who was randomly chosen to win the We-Vibe Tango! Let’s also give a big, um, hand to seth0et0h0lth who submitted the most original suggestion, a trio of masturbation-themed songs from Japanese “Visual Kei” musicians, some of whom have been known to masturbate onstage! This live performance of “Natural Born Onanist” has plenty of simulated masturbation and flying tissues. Congratulations seth0et0h0lth, you win the $20 Pleasure Chest gift card. 

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. We’ll be posting a playlist with many of your suggestions later today! 

It’s National Masturbation Month and everybody is celebrating. But what this party could really use is some music. There are a lot of great songs about sex– kinky sex, butt sex– but what about solo sex? We want to compile the ultimate playlist of songs about masturbation. And you can help.

How to win a We-Vibe Tango

Submit your song suggestion in the comments below. On Monday, May 20th we’ll pick one person at random to win a We-Vibe Tango. We’ll also award a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card to the reader with the most original suggestion. Good luck!

Too Damn Big

by thepleasurechest

Jonah Falcon claims to have the world’s largest penis. It’s said to be 9″ when flaccid and 13.5″ erect. Last year, Falcon made the news when his suspicious package got him stopped at the San Francisco Airport. Today, he’s hoping to cash in on his famous phallus with a new music video. The song’s not so hot, but we love that he rhymed “Jonah” with “boner.”

Listening to Music is As Satisfying As Sex

Do you like to be aurally aroused? A new study confirms that listening to new music stimulates the same pleasure response in the brain as having sex. The scientists were studying brain activity in an effort to predict people’s music buying patterns.

“What makes music so emotionally powerful is the creation of expectations. Activity in the nucleus accumbens is an indicator that expectations were met or surpassed, and in our study we found the more activity we see in this brain area while people are listening to music, the more money they are willing to spend.”

The article notes that this is similar to what happens in the brain during other pleasurable activities.

Similar connections were also seen between the nucleus accumbens and other brain areas involved in high level sequencing, complex pattern recognition and assigning emotional and reward value to stimuli.

In other words, the brain assigns value to music through the ancient reward circuitry of dopamine which reinforces behaviours absolutely necessary for our survival – such as eating and sex.

These connections might explain the popularity of adult toys like the Club Vibe and Better than Chocolate which convert music into pleasurable vibrations and also why certain songs just seem to put us in the mood.

Fifty Songs of KinkA Pervy Playlist from Our Readers

3

by thepleasurechest

Earlier this week, we asked our readers to suggest their favorite kinky songs. Behold “Fifty Songs of Kink,” a pervy playlist crowdsourced from your suggestions. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find everything you suggested in the Spotify library, so we added a few of our staff’s favorite songs too. We also put the most controversial entry– a Nickelbag song– at the end of the playlist. Listen to the end if you’re a true masochist.

We’d like to congratulate Michelle who was randomly chosen to win our collection of kinky toys. We’d also like to thank Cheyanne, who was the first of two readers to suggest Tom Lehrer’s “Masochism Tango.” This song was our staff favorite, so we’re sending Cheyanne a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card!

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Enjoy the tunes and have a very kinky Valentine’s Day!
