Can Google read your dirty mind?

0

by thepleasurechest

If you hadn’t noticed Google recently launched a search feature called Google Instant, which seems capable of reading your mind. That’s true, unless you have a dirty mind. As many people have noted, Google is censoring results that could lead you to porn. It seem that somewhere in the tangle of tubes and wires on Planet Google is a list of banned words and phrases. It’s not surprising to discover that bukkake and fudgepacker made the blacklist, but what about words like lesbian, latina, vulva, bisexual and adult? (Yes, the word “adult” is supposedly a gateway to porn!)

You'll never find the G-Spot on Google Instant.

Google claims that the blacklist is based on some top secret algorithm that identifies the most common porn searches. They also point out (accurately) that you can still do a traditional search for all of these banned terms– they’re just hidden in the real-time Google Instant search bar.

Searching for the "clitoris" may result in painful inflammation.

Fair enough. But a lot of the words on this list seem downright arbitrary. After a tip from Violet Blue’s blog, we took Google Instant out for a spin and discovered that Pleasure Chest and fellow sex toy merchants Babeland were both on the blacklist. Us? We’re downright wholesome, but we join a distinguished list of sex educators, porn stars, body parts and sex acts that are supposedly too hot for Google Instant. Hacker site 2600 is still building its master list. Find anything they missed? Search your dirty mind, and let ‘em know.

Sex Specialists, Exposed

0

by thepleasurechest

Once again I have hastily titled one of these blogs without realizing it implies nudity of some kind. Oh dear.

Anyway, what I mean by “exposed” is that we have a new friend at The Pleasure Chest office HQ (LA), a Flip Slide HD video camera! We kind of like the idea of using this for evil, but we will be using it for good. Luckily, in our line of work, “good” is still pretty naughty.

Look forward to fun and informative videos of Sex Specialists being, well, special, and hopefully some face time with workshop teachers and such. Lady and kid not included.

Also, if you’re interested in exposing yourself, our Show Us Your Pleasure Chest contest is still in full-effect for one more week! Send entries to amanda@thepleasurechest.com through Monday for a chance to win $50, $75, or $100 from The Pleasure Chest to bulk up your toy chest.

by thepleasurechest

This is exciting news. Valentine’s Day is kind of like Christmas around here, except with more sex. Oh, wait, Christmas at The Pleasure Chest also involves a lot of sex… In any event, we love the energy in the store this time of year, and we love you all year long, so we’re asking you to be our Valentine with a free Pleasure Chest vibrator when you mention this blog post (through 2/18/10). It’s like roses, candy, AND diamonds, but with orgasms. And way less hurty when you put it on your private parts.

We were thinking of doing something cutesy like "Will you BEE ours?" and making the bullet look like a bee. Get it? Buzzz? Ok, that's why we decided to go simple.
