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.

Sex is Back

We’re thrilled to be launching our Sex is Back campaign, which features people speaking candidly on camera about their sex lives. Interested? Take a look behind the scenes and meet the Sex is Back team.


Ever since the Pleasure Chest opened its first store in 1971, people have been confiding in us about their sex lives.

They tell us what they’re doing in the bedroom – and what they want to do. More than four decades later, we’ve met all kinds of people. We’ve heard their stories about discovering themselves, overcoming shame and finding sexual fulfillment.

Now we want to share some of those stories with the world.

Porn Stars, Present & Future at Gloryhole: Nina Hartley®, Eddie Wood, & Betty Beaucoup

0

by thepleasurechest

Are you on the fence about whether to come to Gloryhole tonight? What if we reminded you that Nina Hartley® will be there?

For the last sneak peek before the party, we’re profiling the inimitable Nina Hartley® alongside two up-and-comers who will also be gracing the gloryhole this evening.

pink and black w_dressage

Twenty-eight years into her career as a public advocate for sexual self-awareness, sanity and literacy, Nina Hartley® is just hitting her stride.  An exhibitionist with a cause, she created a persona that was wholly new at its inception in 1983 but is now part of the broader cultural lexicon: “feminist porn star.”

Through the 650-plus video and film titles she has made, her two decades of dance tours and her thousands of personal appearances, she has become the most enduringly popular star in the history of the medium. Having been awarded virtually every honor her industry can bestow, Ms. Hartley takes her greatest satisfaction from a diverse fan base that cuts across demographics of age, race and gender.

Still in high demand as an on-screen talent in X-rated features, Ms. Hartley also co-produces her own line of instructional videos, Nina Hartley’s Guides, the market-leader in adult sex-education-video programming, currently in its thirty-eighth installment. She lectures on campuses across the country and has contributed extensively to anthologies regarding sex and feminism.

Ms. Hartley is the author of Nina Hartley’s Guide to Total Sex.

Earlier in the evening, Eddie Wood and Betty Beaucoup will be taking over the gloryhole with a performance that promises to be as adorable as their names and even hotter than their pictures. (Lucky you!)

eddie wood

Eddie Wood made his pornographic debut in Buck Angel’s AVN-nominated and Feminist Porn Award winner, Sexing the Transman (Vol. 1).  He likes squirting, spanking, and mommy-boy play. He is also half of queer/trans/leftist alternative rap duo, Umpire Brolesque.

betty beaucoup

Whether it’s tits, ass, or mouth, sexy triple threat Betty Beaucoup has a lot to offer. Queer, fat, and femme, Ms. Beaucoup truly puts the “galore” in g…lory hole!  She likes gender play, sucking cock, and being a (dirty) toy-slut.

You can find Nina Hartley®, Eddie Wood & Betty Beaucoup in the gloryhole tonight!
