Salon on the Sex Toy Revolution

0

by thepleasurechest

This past weekend, Salon ran an interesting piece on the explosive popularity of sex toys. The article links this development to the phenomenal success of the Fifty Shades book series, but also to a number of high profile media appearances for The Pleasure Chest.

Salon mentions Kathy Griffin’s recent segment filmed at our West Hollywood store and her subsequent interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. Griffin’s segments followed Pleasure Chest appearances on Our America with Lisa Ling and Starter Wives.

Salon suggests that America is in the midst of a fourth sexual revolution, following past cultural upheavals in the 1840s, the 1920s and the 1960.

“Sex 4.0 is grounded in a legal and cultural belief that consenting adults have a right to privacy … and to pleasure. This is adult – consensual and noncommercial — sex after Roe v. Wade in ’73, after AIDS and safe sex, and after Lawrence v. Texas in 2003. Equally critical, it is sex after the wide-scale adoption of the Internet and smartphones that revolutionized communications, including pornography.”

36

by thepleasurechest

UPDATE: Congratulations to the following folks who were randomly selected to win prizes from Vibratex:

Keep an eye on this blog and on Twitter for more Vibratex giveaways this month! 

This month, we’ve partnered with legendary toymaker Vibratex to highlight some of their best products. You probably know Vibratex as the creators of the original Rabbit Pearl vibrator, featured on Sex & the City. This is the episode that helped put vibrators (and us) on the pop culture map.

But did you know they’re also the distributors of the powerful and ever-popular Hitachi Magic Wand? For people who crave strong vibration, the Hitachi is widely considered the gold standard in adult toys. Vibratex also makes male masturbation sleeves like the Maven and the Sidekick and a thrilling variety of dual stimulation vibes including the Sugar Pop and the Budding Bliss. They’ve even created rechargeable versions of the magic wand for folks who don’t like to be tethered to a wall socket while they play.

Win a Vibratex Toy

Which Vibratex toy would you like to call your own? Take a look at your choices and post a comment telling us which toy you want and why. On Thursday, March 7th, we’ll pick three folks at random to win the toy they want.

It’s that simple. Good luck!

Fifty Songs of KinkA Pervy Playlist from Our Readers

3

by thepleasurechest

Earlier this week, we asked our readers to suggest their favorite kinky songs. Behold “Fifty Songs of Kink,” a pervy playlist crowdsourced from your suggestions. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find everything you suggested in the Spotify library, so we added a few of our staff’s favorite songs too. We also put the most controversial entry– a Nickelbag song– at the end of the playlist. Listen to the end if you’re a true masochist.

We’d like to congratulate Michelle who was randomly chosen to win our collection of kinky toys. We’d also like to thank Cheyanne, who was the first of two readers to suggest Tom Lehrer’s “Masochism Tango.” This song was our staff favorite, so we’re sending Cheyanne a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card!

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Enjoy the tunes and have a very kinky Valentine’s Day!
