Joan Jett, Sid Vicious & The Pleasure Chest

In an interview posted today at The Morton Report, Joan Jett confirms a rumor we’ve heard for years:

I think it was '78. All the Runaways were staying on a houseboat. On that same trip, I was also hanging out with Sid [Vicious] and Nancy [Spungen]. That was right before they came to America. And you know, that hoop belt that Sid would always wear, it was a black leather belt with rings on it. I gave that to him in England. I bought that at the Pleasure Chest in LA, and I used to wear it all the time, you can see a lot of Runaways pictures with me wearing that belt. And I gave it to him just as a gesture, because I was a fan. And he started wearing it, and in all their pictures of them in America when they did their tour. I just think that's funny.

While we’re on the subject of the 70s, check out Dressing for Pleasure, a 1977 documentary on fetish fashion, which helped influence the UK punk scene.

Your Anal August Playlist

2

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we introduced our readers to the Aneros Tempo, a stainless steel buttplug designed to get your butt moving.  In this spirit, we asked you to submit your favorite butt-shaking songs and back door anthems, for a chance to win a Tempo of your own. After tallying all the entries, we selected a  winner at random, and the owner of the lucky rump is Casey of Gainesville, FL. Congratulations Casey, we hope that the Tempo fills your butt with joy.

We also awarded Aneros gift bags to our two favorite entries. Alexander from Brooklyn suggested “Do You Take It in the Ass?” by The Wet Spots.

Bravo Alexander. You’ve just given us the perfect song to break the ice on first dates! Enjoy your Aneros gift bag.

Our other runner up winner is Yolanda from Brooklyn who tipped us to this amazing video of “Twerk” by Lady.

This video is mesmerizing. Thanks Yolanda! We hope you enjoy your Aneros gift bag.

Thanks also to the many others who participated in this contest. We made an epic playlist of butt-themed songs below. Enjoy!

Keep your eyes open for another music-filled Aneros giveaway later this week. We can’t tell you the specifics yet, but you might want to prepare yourself by getting familiar with Turntable.fm.

by thepleasurechest

The new anal toy from Aneros ain’t called the Tempo for nothin’. This shiny, stainless steel butt plug has strategically placed knobs designed to trigger the natural rhythms of your inner and outer sphincter. In other words, it makes your booty dance! If you don’t believe us, you’ll just have to try one. We’re giving away a free Tempo to one lucky reader next Monday afternoon.

Tell Us Your Best Butt Songs & Win a Tempo

If you want play, simply post a comment here telling us the name of your favorite booty-shaking song or songs. Anything will do, but since we’re celebrating Anal August, we’d especially love to hear about any songs which reference the rump in their title or lyrics (“My Humps,” “Shake Your Booty”).

On Monday, August 22nd at noon PST, we’ll pick one entry at random to win the Tempo. We’ll also award an Aneros gift bag to each of the two entries we liked the best. (And by the way, did you know that you can get a free gift bag with the purchase of ANY Aneros product during Anal August?)

So, please help us build the best Anal August playlist ever. Enter now!

Beyond Gender with Genesis & Lady Jaye

0

by thepleasurechest

Many people have described love as the experience of becoming one with another person. Few have tried to express this quite so literally as pioneering performance artists and soulmates Genesis Orridge and Lady Jaye. In the 1990s,  the couple, already famous in underground art and music circles, embarked on a radical project to express their profound connection to one another.

Drawing inspiration from “cut ups,” an experimental art practice, popularized by William Burroughs, in which bits of text or audio are cut up and rearranged to create something new, they set out to explore the mutability of the body, gender and identity itself. Orridge and Lady Jaye invented a third being, which they called “The Pandrogyne” and began a series of surgeries and transformations to realize their vision. Neither male, nor female, the Pandrogyne is an expression of their utopian ideas of love, change and liberation from the body.

As Orridge said,

My project is not about gender. Some feel like a man trapped in a woman’s body, others like a woman trapped in a man’s body. The pandrogyne says, I just feel trapped in a body. The body is simply the suitcase that carries us around. Pandrogyny is all about the mind, consciousness.

When Lady Jaye passed away in 2007, Orridge continued the project, and a documentary about their lives was finally completed.

Is the Pandrogyne the unique expression of one couple’s love? Or a radical assault on gender norms and the limits of the body?

Our LA readers will get a chance to decide for themselves when The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye premieres at the 29th Annual Outfest on Saturday.

AIDS at 30, Colbert on Weinergate & Turn Of the Century Spooning

0

by thepleasurechest

Here are our favorite stories and links from last week’s Twitter feed.

  • After yet another HIV scare, the legal battle over condoms in porn may be going to a new level as lawmakers in California prepare to make them mandatory.

  • Yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of the first reports of AIDS by the CDC. Wired published this interesting map showing the distribution of HIV throughout the United States.
  • Timothy Brown underwent an innovative treatment for HIV and now shows no signs of the virus. Brown’s story gives scientists new hope for a cure.
  • A maverick Indian scientist may be revolutionizing birth control for men. Will RISUG (“reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance”) replace the vasectomy?

  • Carolyn Owlett isn’t a scientist or a statistician, but “Sexy Girls Have it Easy” is full of anecdotal evidence to prove what many women have long suspected.

 

  • Music fans might want to take care when downloading from the interwebz. A report on Boing Boing claims that Titan Media is disguising gay porn movies as music files in an attempt to shake down those who are engaged in illegal file sharing. Is that a Dire Straits album you just downloaded? Or is it “Cop Shack 101?”

Stephen Colbert has been hacked!

  • In other interweb news, Stephen Colbert spoofed the “Weinergate” scandal with a series of hilariously suggestive photos.

Eau de toilette.
