lelo tara

Update: Congratulations to Gambit, who won the Lelo Tara! Thank you to everyone who told us about your awesome costumes. Keep an eye out for more prizes from Lelo this month!

This month, we’ll be giving away three amazing gift sets from Lelo! Each lucky winner will get a Lelo Tara, a tube of Lelo Personal Moisturizer water based lube, and a bottle of Lelo Antibacterial Cleaning Spray for keeping your new toy squeaky clean.

The Lelo Tara is the toy that does everything. A pared-down version of the classic rabbit, the Tara’s larger end vibrates the clit while the smaller end rotates against the G-spot. What’s more, it’s designed to be used during partner sex. That’s a lot of stimulation! (We haven’t heard how it works as an anal toy, but we’re excited to find out.) The Tara is coated in non-porous, hypoallergenic silicone for body-safe play.

Want to win a Lelo Tara? Here’s how.

Halloween is fast approaching, and we love dressing up! Tell us about your costume in the comments below, and you’ll be entered to win. Please be sure to include an email address, so that we know how to reach you.

A winner will be chosen at random on Friday, 10/18 at 10am PDT.

U.S. residents only.

MichaelsJohnsonTantraPMIntroduction to Tantra with Patricia Johnson and Mark Michaels
Wednesday, October 23rd @ 8-10pm FREE!

Tantra uses sexual energy for consciousness expansion. In other words you can think whatever thoughts, use whatever implements, and be with whomever you wish, as long as that gets you into a highly charged erotic state. This is where the magic can begin to happen. Join Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, authors of “Great Sex Made Simple,” for an honest discussion in which they will dispel some of the popular myths surrounding this ancient tradition. You will learn that elements of Tantric philosophy and practice can be easily applied to our modern lives in ways that do more than simply improve our sexual experiences. This class is for all relationship styles, configurations and gender identities. Singles are welcome.

How to Flirt at a Pleasure Chest Workshop

0

by thepleasurechest

sexnerdsandra

Autostraddle recently featured a list of places where hookups might be found. One of the favorites? Sex ed workshops. We couldn’t agree more! To our delight (and relief) the article included some tips and caveats for approaching a cutie you meet at your local sex shop’s G-spotting class.

You could always feel free to share some of your experiences, listen in on others’ experiences or ask a group of people for a few extra tips. Opening yourself up to discussions might help you catch the attention of a woman who peaks your interests.

Remember that sex-ed spaces are often meant as fun, safe spaces where it’s okay to talk about sex freely, and that respecting and maintaining the value of that safe space may mean being discreet about your attraction. Also, be cautious with asking too many personal questions about someone’s sexuality and sex life, unless she brings it up first.

If the worst case scenario is that you pick up some new skills for when you do have someone to use them on, we still call that a win. You can find our upcoming workshops here.

The Autostraddle article is aimed at queer women, but a lot of the tips can be adapted to suit anyone. Read it here.
