More Fun With Maps!

average_age_at_first_sex_by_country-1

Since you got a kick out of the map of PornHub search terms, we thought you’d enjoy this world map of the average age of first sex by country. None of the sources we found were clear about how “first sex” was defined. (It’s usually safe to assume that people are using the narrow definition of sex as heterosexual vaginal intercourse, but hey, we don’t know for sure.) If you want to get a more detailed look, you can do it here.

Do Men Fake Orgasm?

0

by thepleasurechest

whymenfakeit

Men fake orgasms too. Or at least that’s one of the claims of a new book by Dr. Abraham Morgentaler, a professor of urology at Harvard Medical School. Salon has a fascinating interview with Dr. Morgentaler, the author of Why Men Fake It: The Totally Unexpected Truth About Men and Sex. The discussion touches on everything from changing gender roles to erectile dysfunction, but it’s the claim about men faking orgasm that has drawn the most attention. He cites examples from his own practice and mentions an online survey in which 31% of men claim to have faked it, at some point in their lives.

“It turns out the reasons men fake it are actually pretty similar to the reasons that women fake it. In their minds — and we can argue whether or not it’s productive thing to do — but in their minds, it’s actually a form of kindness. They’re kind of letting the other person know that they’ve done a good job.

Fair enough, but you might be wondering how men fake it. On that point, Morgentaler is quiet, suggesting you buy his book. Our friend Reid Mihalko has some thoughts on this topic in the video below.

So we’d like to ask our male readers. Have you ever faked it? If so, why? And how? Feel free to tell us in the comments below.

Buxxer. Turn On or Buzz Off?

by thepleasurechest

buxxer

Last week, we asked you about the Wake-up Vibe, a combination alarm clock and adult toy that promises to rouse you with sweet vibrations. 60% of our readers said it was a snooze while 40% were ready to rise to the occasion.  It’s a neat idea, but maybe the Wake-up Vibe is just ahead of its time.

This week, we introduce you to Buxxer. He’s the yellow guy in the middle up above. We don’t know much about him, as this photo was snapped at the International Lingerie Show in Las Vegas just a few hours ago. We assume that button on his belly triggers vibrations in his pointy helmet, giving his user the same look of surprise on his cute little face.

We need help deciding if Buxxer belongs in our store. Since attraction is all about first impressions, you tell us. Would you hop aboard Buxxer’s vibrating helmet? Or are you just toying with his affections? Take our poll.

Wake-up Vibe. Turn On or Buzz Off?

6

by thepleasurechest

It’s been just over a year since we last polled our readers for Turn On or Buzz Off. Last time we told you about a miniature dildo called the NoseBanger, designed to stimulate the elusive “N-Spot” inside the nose. Well, as you might have guessed, both the NoseBanger and the N-Spot were fake. Just a little April foolin’ from our copywriting department. That didn’t stop folks from sounding off on the peculiar finger-shaped dildo. 40% of you would pick the NoseBanger, while the remaining 60% thought it blew.

This time, we promise no shenanigans. Here’s an actual product we want your feedback on. Meet the Wake-up Vibe, a combination alarm clock and vibrator. Yes, it’s an alarm clock for your vagina.

The concept is simple. Before bed, program the toy with the time you want to wake up, choose from one of six vibe patterns and then slip it inside your panties. The ergonomic shape of the Wake-up Vibe is designed for comfort while you sleep. “Toss and turn and it will stay in place,” promises the website.

We love this video of a beautiful woman throwing her old school alarm clock in an industrial trash can, and later waking up (with flawless makeup), aroused from slumber by her space-age vibrator.

As heavy sleepers, we think the Wake-up Vibe might be a less rude awakening than our ancient Radio Shack alarm clock with its nagging beep. But we also worry that the Wake-up Vibe might simply rouse us into consciousness long enough to have an orgasm, and then send us plummeting back into sleep, and eventually unemployment. Will we truly rest easier with a time bomb ticking in our panties? Will this promote sleep or distract us?

What do you think? Would you put a sexy vibrating clock in your pajamas? Or do you find the idea of the Wake-up Vibe alarming? Take our poll!

Heeldo. Turn On or Buzz Off?

5

by thepleasurechest

It’s been almost a year since our last installment of Turn On or Buzz Off– the feature where we ask readers to weigh in on the weirdest products in the adult toy industry. As some dedicated fans might remember, we’ve polled you on everything from zombie dildos and Simpsons porn, to an MMA bed and a vibrating bra! Some of the contenders in Turn On or Buzz Off, like the adorable Bzzzbuddies and the stealthy L’Intimate, have even found their way onto our stores’ shelves. We’d almost forgotten about this feature, until a new product landed on our desk this week.

Meet the Heeldo, a strap-on harness for your foot! Oh sure, you’ve seen the thigh harness, the hand harness and the chin strap. But what’s the appeal of footballin’?

Let the marketing folks at Heeldo explain:

Heeldo™ is the FIRST strap-on dildo harness for your foot allowing for vaginal, clitoral or anal stimulation.  It slides on your foot like a sock and a dildo protrudes out of the back of the harness, where your heel is. You can then sit, squat, and bounce on your favorite harness-friendly dildo.

  • Compatible with most harness-friendly dildos on the market
  • Made of neoprene and is hand washable
  • Guaranteed pleasurable blowjob for both men and women
  • Ideal for straight and gay couple play
  • Great for female solo masturbation or male self-pegging
  • Prostate stimulation for intense male orgasms!

Sounds toe-tally awesome, right? We can see how this harness would be a shoe-in with foot fetishists. But we’re not sure we’ve got the coordination required to give a blowjob while giving ourselves a toe job. Either way, we imagine, the Heeldo would provide one helluva workout.

What about you? Would you get your kicks from the Heeldo? Or is foot-oriented sex your Achilles’ heel? Take our poll!

We Dare. Turn On or Buzz Off?

0

by thepleasurechest

In our last poll, we asked readers to sound off on the Pangao Breast Enhancer. The infamous vibrating bra got very little support. Most of you hated this gadget, and couldn’t wait to get it off of your chests! Only a pair of voters were hooked. So long, Pangao Breast Enhancer, and thanks for the… (No, we can’t even go there. Some puns are unmentionable.)

This week’s contestant on Turn On or Buzz Off is for the swingers among you.  Wanna put the “game” back in non-monogamy? Sick of the same old key parties? Check out We Dare, an adults only game for the Nintendo Wii and PS3.

Here’s the come-on:

“We Dare is a sexy, quirky party game that offers a large variety of hilarious, innovative and physical, sometimes kinky, challenges. The more friends you invite to the party, the saucier the game!”

“Use the Wii-mote and PS3 Move controller in unbelievable ways, as you’ve never imagined before…wave it around to the beat of your favourite tunes, old and new…put it in your pocket and act-out flirtatious actions…balance it to navigate precarious challenges…sometimes co-operative hugging helps, and it certainly doesn’t hurt. Enjoy the unique gameplay designed for the use of these motion controllers exclusively for We Dare.”

Ah yes, “cooperative hugging”– the first step to a successful orgy. Whatever happened to a couple bottles of wine and a game of strip poker?

Judging from its now infamous commercial, We Dare is aiming for a demographic that doesn’t already hang out at swing clubs or poly munches. It’s apparently being marketed to straight, vanilla couples as a fun way to ease in to partner swapping, with some light spanking, sofa snuggling, trivia and other games. In this sense, it reminds us a lot of the old school “icebreaker” board games like 7 Deadly Sins or Sexy Slang.

Even though the ad looks a bit cheesy (OK, like a big hunk of cheddar with a slice of Velveeta on top), the truth is we can imagine playing We Dare with the right group of friends. But what about you? Whether you’re a novice at non-monogamy or a seasoned swinger, we want to know what you think. Would you swap Pictionary (and your partner) for a night with We Dare?

Editor’s note: We realize that we’re playing fast and loose with some different terms here. For an excellent primer on the difference between polyamory and swinging, we recommend this video by Ms. Nina Hartley.

L’Intimate. Turn On or Buzz Off?

2

by thepleasurechest

Voter turnout was very low in last week’s poll on the Obama Condom. With 100% of precincts reporting, we can now confirm that the Obama Condom will not be taking an oath of orifice.

Even though our fragile democracy has vetoed the Presidential prophylactic, we note that the British monarchy has its own version. Check out “Crown Jewels” brand condoms created to honor the upcoming nuptials of Prince Williams. Our suggested slogan: “For when you want to get royally fucked!”

This week’s contestant on Turn On or Buzz Off is classier than our usual fare. It’s a product designed for those discrete souls who want to keep their sex toys hidden from prying eyes. Say bonjour to L’Intimate, (a play on the words “lint” and “intimate”), a functional lint roller, with a secret compartment in the handle for storing a vibrator. It’s basically a stashcan for your vibe!

Or, in the words of its manufacturer, Miss Chivus:

L’Intimate is a dual-functioning product that elevates the level of class and discretion for women looking to maintain pleasure in their personal lives. Our goal is to provide a functional compromise between natural sexuality and sophistication.

There’s even a helpful diagram showing you how to open the secret compartment and remove your vibrator (which is included). Miss Chivus promises that L’Intimate is “the first in a soon to be revolutionary line of ‘disguised’ adult products.” There’s definitely a demand for covert sex toys. There are already sex toys disguised as lipstick, a sponge, a USB thumb drive and even a bicycle grip.

For those with nosy houseguests (the kind who open drawers and look under beds), L’Intimate might be a dream come true. As a fringe benefit, you might get a special thrill when an unsuspecting visitor runs the roller along their coat or evening gown. Or, on the other hand, will you have neurotic visions of the guest unlocking the secret compartment and discovering your naughty secret?

We have irrational fears of our own. Around our house, the lint roller is the primary weapon in the war against cat hair– the natural enemy of sticky sex toys. Do we really want our vibrator riding shotgun inside a lint magnet?

Let us know what you think. L’Intimate. Turn On or Buzz Off?
