This Week’s Best of the Chest

1

by thepleasurechest

Each day, we try to post amusing, informative and unusual links and articles covering the wide range of human sexuality. If you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, you’re probably already familiar with our daily feeding frenzy. For those who don’t, we decided it would be fun to post an end o’ the week review of the stuff that got our attention on the internet. This is the week’s best links from your friends at the Chest.

The Daily Show – Minneapolis Is the New Gay
Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook

  • Speaking of San Francisco, The Daily Show this week asked “Is Minneapolis gayer than San Francisco?”

Who's your daddy?

  • “For some reason I thought there were other lesbians who felt that way and that was just a part of that community. Then I realized, that’s not what being a lesbian is — that’s what being transgender is.” - Chaz Bono, on the difference between gender and orientation and his path to becoming a man.

 

  • We’re not sure how we missed this, but last month some enterprising safe sex advocates staged a most unusual stunt at the Washington Monument. Keep America safe!

  • The Good Men Project asked the perennial question: Does Size Matter? We don’t know, but Lady Gaga’s giant penis stilettos are the only reason we’d ever tune in to watch American Idol. Too bad those heels at the Fox network censored them.

The boner machine?

 

  • Finally, though this happened 10 whole days ago, we can’t resist mentioning that one of our music heroes, Black Francis (yes, from Pixies!), randomly tweeted us to say “I just got turned on.” And we don’t think he’s talking about his guitar amp.

If you also get aroused by seeing sexy stuff in your daily feed, you can follow our LA, NY and Chicago stores on Twitter.

Pleasure Chest: Hollywood’s Kink Consultants

1

by thepleasurechest

Have you ever seen Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge? The sequel is famous among horror fans for its barely concealed gay subtext. Yesterday, we learned from the awesome culture blog Dangerous Minds that the campy homo horror movie is finally coming out of the closet. In an upcoming documentary on the Freddy franchise, the creators and star of Nightmare 2 discuss how they ended up making the gayest fright flick ever.

But that’s not what caught our attention. It seems that when the filmmakers cast producer Robert Shay for his cameo as a bartender in a leather bar, they sent him to the Pleasure Chest for his wardrobe. (Jump to 3:40 for the anecdote.)

We’re honored to play a part in Hollywood’s gay horror history. And, in this tradition, we heard a rumor that the latest Rihanna video, appropriately-titled “S&M” features some kinky gear sourced from our LA store.

After Hours with the Club Vibe

1

by thepleasurechest

Jenae, our intrepid Sex Specialist, popped the Club Vibe in her pants and hit the dance floor. Here’s the buzz.

I might be a club-goer. I might be that girl who happens to be at every party you thought you couldn’t get on the list for. My friends call me Lesbian Google, because I can find any good club night within a 15 mile radius.

Yup. I’m that girl. The girl who is always ready for a club night and a good time. The Club Vibe is “Pleasure Remixed” and I got a chance to remix some pleasure one night at a Chicago hotspot. The club I chose is open till 4am and known for attracting local oddities so I knew I wouldn’t look out of place with a wire sticking out of my pants. Yes, the Club Vibe is wired from bullet to remote. So it’s not a discreet as some might like.

The remote is actually a little receiver that picks up ambient noise from whatever space you’re in. If you are wearing the receiver box like a pager, be aware your clothes will be creating most of the shuffle noise you are “receiving” in your pants. I decided to go for the gusto and not care if anyone saw the wire poking out of my dress. I stealthily inserted the little bullet into the panty gusset and turned it on.  In the bathroom the club vibe picked up on the bass right away. There was a steady “boom boom boom” that got me really excited to join in on the fun!

I walked outside and got a HUGE jolt. The Club Vibe definitely picks up on all the noise around you and does not have discernible taste. Once it hears the nightlife, it’s got to boogie and that boogie will burn your clit off!  My advice? Steer clear of the clubs with this vibe but definitely take it out to any smaller bar with a nice back beat and lots of strangers conversing. You will definitely not be bored with the background chatter!

Zombi Art Dildo. Turn On or Buzz Off?

4

by thepleasurechest

Well, it was a close one, but last week’s contestant on Turn On or Buzz Off, the cock-sucking, one-eyed alien Maneater went down (so to speak) in defeat. 47% of voters were licking their chops, while 53% refused to bite. Sorry Maneater, the kitchen is closed. We’re sure you’ll find someone else to eat.

Speaking of monsters with a taste for human flesh, let’s talk zombies! From movies and TV to modern lit and gay porn, zombies are all the rage. And now, apparently, they’ve inspired their very own sex toy.

Introducing the Zombi Art Dildo from Necronomicox, a line of horror movie-inspired sex toys! Whether you’re a necrophile or simply a horror movie geek, you gotta love ad copy like this:

All it wants is your warm human flesh. A bloated, rotting, pustulant abomination. Choose from a variety of festering colours.

Size: ~7″ Long total and 1.5″ Across with clit stimulating arteries, and textured rotting penis head… so grotesque as to be amazing!

Each Zombi is made of body-safe, platinum silicone, and hand-painted “to give it personality and gruesome reality.”  Yay, just what we’ve always wanted in the bedroom: gruesome reality! So now, we turn to you, fearless reader. Can you imagine spending a hot night of the living dead with this dildo? The Zombi. Turn On or Buzz Off?

While you vote, please enjoy our special zombie-themed playlist!

Rocker finds love at The Pleasure Chest

by thepleasurechest

We were, uh, “changing channels” the other night, when we stumbled upon a show called Married to Rock. Check out this brief inspirational clip about how Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens met his wife Josie.

As many of our customers know, The Pleasure Chest is an awesome place to meet the love of your life. Ironically, AOL Chicago thinks we’re also a great place to breakup. (We disagree. Tears are bad for business!)

Speaking of rockers who shop at The Pleasure Chest, please enjoy this classic photo of Joan Jett posing in front of our old digs in West Hollywood.

Celebrity Skin

by thepleasurechest

After reading this post on gothamist about a female New York Times columnist calling the devastatingly beautiful Christina Hendricks a “big girl” (THE HORROR!) and the paper allegedly manipulating the image of her on the Golden Globes red carpet to make her look bigger, I was totally outraged. First of all, she is far from fat. Secondly, despite popular belief, fat people are actually human beings who don’t eat kittens, are not the cause of global warming, and can be as sexy and stylish as anyone else. Lastly, I thought Christina’s ruffly, peach Christian Siriano dress was, well, fierce.

Left: the NY Times image; Right: the original image. Comparison via gothamist.com

Anyway, this got me thinking, not only about women and how we treat one another (I’m a feminist), but how much I’d really like to see Christina Hendricks naked (a horny feminist). I honestly cannot imagine a life in which I never get to see her breasts in their full, be-nippled glory. It seems that in today’s society, we are spoiled with nude pictures and sex tapes of celebrities to the extent that we have actually come to expect visual access to their naked bodies in addition to the juicy details of their personal lives.

For example: Britney Spears’ labia flash a few years ago? Shocking. Lindsay Lohan’s? Slightly less shocking, but still provocative. Britney’s and Lindsay’s second and third lip slips? Wow. I mean, if you had told me when I was younger that one day in my 20s I’d be able to draw my celebrity contemporaries’ vulvae from memory, I would have never believed you and probably thought you were a complete perv.

Now fast forward: Kim Kardashian’s sex tape? Whatever, nice ass. Cassie’s pierced nipples and labia ring? NBD (no big deal). Rihanna’s nude shots? Not too shabby, actually, and kind of artsy in a Guys with iPhones sort of way.

So, in the midst of all this, I realized that now I pretty much expect to see just about anyone I want to naked. I’ve seen most of my friends naked (I’m a girl, it happens), I’ve seen Madonna naked, I’ve seen Hermione Granger’s nipple, and so on and so forth. The possibilities seem endless!

In all seriousness, if Christina Hendricks never decides to take the plunge and concludes that her plunging necklines are revealing enough, it won’t ruin my life. The rest of the drooling masses and I will go on, and there is plenty of skin, celebrity and otherwise, to gawk at on the internet, as well as the celeb sex tapes and parodies we carry at The Pleasure Chest. I just think the sense of entitlement to certain people’s private lives is an interesting thing to think about, from a cultural standpoint and as a sex-positive, body-positive, feminist sex worker.

On that note, I will leave you with the French version of the trailer for Chloe, a movie starring another outrageously hot redhead, Julianne Moore, and the lovely Amanda Seyfried. This version of the trailer undoubtedly has more nudity in it than the American one will. That’s right folks, this trailer also stars a shot of Amanda Seyfried’s titty, though its true identity is suspect due to the lack of face action. In any event, enjoy!
