bachelorette

Bachelorette parties are a hallowed tradition. But what if you want to try something different? The Artful Bachelorette is an NYC-based company that hosts nude life-drawing classes for special occasions.

Each 2 hour class includes a nude male art model and drinks served by a topless waiter. We think this is a great alternative to the same old strip club. The Huffington Post has an interview with the company’s founders and one of their popular models.

If you’re planning a bachelorette party this wedding season, don’t forget that we offer Sex Toy Socials and sex ed workshops for small groups. Contact your local Pleasure Chest for details.

fortefemme

Want to learn the art of female dominance with an expert? Our dear friend Midori is conducting another ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Intensive from June 28th to June 30th in New York City. And there are just three spots left! If you’re curious about getting personalized, practical advice on female domination, this is a great opportunity. Here’s Midori’s description of what you can expect:

From Friday night to Sunday afternoon, you will be immersed in a safe, private and supportive environment exploring what it means to find and enjoy your power as a dominant femme. Midori’s uniquely-designed curriculum takes a “Head-Heart-Hands” approach that integrates the eroticism of your mind and body, as well as of your partner, instead of trying to teach you one-size-fits-all scripts or focusing on technique.

If you’d like a better idea of what to expect, you can read Huffington Post blogger Vanessa Pinto’s post about her experiences attending ForteFemme last year. For more information and to nab one of the remaining spots in New York, head on over to the Forte Femme site.
