Tight assed Dutch protest “Buttplug Gnome”

0

by thepleasurechest


Dutch politician Geert Wilders has his panties in a bunch over a controversial statue of Santa Claus, created by LA conceptual artist Paul McCarthy. The LA Weekly reports:

The piece, funded by the Dutch government, is intended as a holiday tribute, and its official title is “Santa Claus.” Santa, or a gnome, holds a large, festive bell in one hand, and in the other what’s (perhaps) intended to be a Christmas tree. But the resemblance of the Tanenbaum to a certain kind of sex toy has prompted a populist renaming of the piece as “The Buttplug Gnome.”

We must admit that the resemblance is striking.

Bottoms Up!

by thepleasurechest

We learn today from our friends at  Carnal Nation about an innovative cocktail served recently at a gay bar in Finland. Selling for a cool 69 euros, this drink replaces ice cubes with a chilled, stainless steel butt plug from N Joy. Is this the first fusion of buttplugs and booze? We doubt it. But it got us to thinking about how to liven up our next cocktail party or sex toy social. How about a White Russian garnished with the classic Aneros? Or a very dirty Martini with a Kegelcisor swizzle stick? On second thought, this is a terrible idea.

Bill O’ Reilly is into Doin’ “it” Live!

0

by thepleasurechest

Pugnacious pundit and noted loofah enthusiast Bill O’ Reilly fancies himself an anti-porn crusader and defender of traditional values. This morning, however, the Boston Phoenix published a column revealing that while a grad student at Boston University in 1974, O’ Reilly penned a lengthy, and very sympathetic interview with Gerard Damiano.  The legendary director of Deep Throat was in Boston to promote the release of his second feature Devil in Miss Jones and O’ Reilly took Damiano out to lunch, to talk about the porn business, Linda Lovelace and Hollywood.

This is not the first time that O’ Reilly’s fixation on porn has gotten attention. His 1998 novel Those Who Trespass contains some steamy dialogue, including this line: “Say baby, put down that pipe and get my pipe up.” You can even hear the author read his steamy prose in these audiobook clips generously hosted by the Village Voice. We look forward to the Fox News host excoriating  his youthful self for being a smut peddler on the next episode of The Factor. (Well, actually we don’t.) Instead we imagine things look a little more like this around O’ Reilly’s studio today.

Porn stars play D&D!

Get ready for a total nerdgasm. Online gaming magazine The Escapist has launched a new webseries called I Hit it With My Axe. The show documents an ongoing game of Dungeons & Dragons between a group of porn stars, strippers and their punk rock dungeon master. That’s a lot of charisma points. The players include Kimberly Kane, Mandy Morbid and Satine Phoenix. If you’ve ever wanted to see Sasha Grey roll a 20 sided die, this is the show for you. Via Videogum.

Pornography Fridays

1

by thepleasurechest

I chose to title this new feature, “Pornography Fridays,” because it has such a nice ring to it. Don’t you think?

Anyway, one Friday a month I’m going to write about an adult movie, either in-stock at The Pleasure Chest, upcoming, or newsworthy.

Last week we were all hit hard by the death of Rue McClanahan, an icon for so many reasons, but her later work in The Golden Girls was inspiring to women, older women, and sex positive people of all walks of life. Today the terms MILF, GILF, and cougar are pretty much household words, for better or worse, but Rue’s Golden Girls character Blanche Devereaux was a woman who loved sex unapologetically, and hearing an older woman talk about her sex life that way on tv was certainly ahead of its time.

Golden Girls: An All MILF XXX Parody was actually released in May, not timely with Rue McClanahans death (thankfully – that would have been somewhat awkward), and we’ll be getting it in our stores soon. I’m not super excited about the “turn a lesbian to cock” angle, but the trailer actually looks like the film could be quite humorous and entertaining.

Lastly, let’s look at a great moment from the actual show, where the Girls watch porn.

This show was just so, so special! RIP Rue, Bea, and Estelle.

Sex with the in-crowd

by thepleasurechest

Okay, not exactly, but sort of. You see, this month all three Pleasure Chest locations are sitting at the cool kids’ table with some of our favorite sex celebs and most popular workshops!

Tomorrow night in Los Angeles, adult film and fetish star Madison Young makes her PC debut teaching Fellatio and Fetishism. We’re super-excited about this fresh take on one of our most popular workshop subjects. She’ll talk about how to incorporate latex, bondage, smoking blow jobs, deep throating, sensation play, toys, and anal play for a long, luxurious oral worshipping of the cock.

On Monday, May 24th in Chicago, sex ed superstar Midori is teaching her workshop on how to please your man with blow-jobs and more,  Joy Stick Secrets, which has thrilled audiences in all three of our stores. She’ll be there most of the week, with How to Eat a Peach: Cunnilingus with Midori on Tuesday, and Rosy Cheeks: Spanking with Midori on Wednesday.

And of course, the New York staff of Sex Specialists are known never to disappoint. They’ll be teaching everyone’s favorite penis-pleasing workshop Blow-jobs and Beyond on Tuesday, May 25th.

Get there early! These FREE workshops are always in-demand and seating is limited.

Attractive? Yes. Crowd-pleasing? Definitely. Popular? Always. But don’t call us The Plastics…. unless you mean silicone.

As if the actual show isn’t pretty much a porn…

The official trailer for a True Blood porn parody, efficiently titled Tru: A XXX Parody, is finally here! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a big fan of True Blood, things that are sexy and things that are hilarious, so this seems right up my alley. How about Eric’s wig in this film? It’s really something special.

Looks like this will be released sometime in November, so stay tuned.

Celebrity Skin

After reading this post on gothamist about a female New York Times columnist calling the devastatingly beautiful Christina Hendricks a “big girl” (THE HORROR!) and the paper allegedly manipulating the image of her on the Golden Globes red carpet to make her look bigger, I was totally outraged. First of all, she is far from fat. Secondly, despite popular belief, fat people are actually human beings who don’t eat kittens, are not the cause of global warming, and can be as sexy and stylish as anyone else. Lastly, I thought Christina’s ruffly, peach Christian Siriano dress was, well, fierce.

Left: the NY Times image; Right: the original image. Comparison via gothamist.com

Anyway, this got me thinking, not only about women and how we treat one another (I’m a feminist), but how much I’d really like to see Christina Hendricks naked (a horny feminist). I honestly cannot imagine a life in which I never get to see her breasts in their full, be-nippled glory. It seems that in today’s society, we are spoiled with nude pictures and sex tapes of celebrities to the extent that we have actually come to expect visual access to their naked bodies in addition to the juicy details of their personal lives.

For example: Britney Spears’ labia flash a few years ago? Shocking. Lindsay Lohan’s? Slightly less shocking, but still provocative. Britney’s and Lindsay’s second and third lip slips? Wow. I mean, if you had told me when I was younger that one day in my 20s I’d be able to draw my celebrity contemporaries’ vulvae from memory, I would have never believed you and probably thought you were a complete perv.

Now fast forward: Kim Kardashian’s sex tape? Whatever, nice ass. Cassie’s pierced nipples and labia ring? NBD (no big deal). Rihanna’s nude shots? Not too shabby, actually, and kind of artsy in a Guys with iPhones sort of way.

So, in the midst of all this, I realized that now I pretty much expect to see just about anyone I want to naked. I’ve seen most of my friends naked (I’m a girl, it happens), I’ve seen Madonna naked, I’ve seen Hermione Granger’s nipple, and so on and so forth. The possibilities seem endless!

In all seriousness, if Christina Hendricks never decides to take the plunge and concludes that her plunging necklines are revealing enough, it won’t ruin my life. The rest of the drooling masses and I will go on, and there is plenty of skin, celebrity and otherwise, to gawk at on the internet, as well as the celeb sex tapes and parodies we carry at The Pleasure Chest. I just think the sense of entitlement to certain people’s private lives is an interesting thing to think about, from a cultural standpoint and as a sex-positive, body-positive, feminist sex worker.

On that note, I will leave you with the French version of the trailer for Chloe, a movie starring another outrageously hot redhead, Julianne Moore, and the lovely Amanda Seyfried. This version of the trailer undoubtedly has more nudity in it than the American one will. That’s right folks, this trailer also stars a shot of Amanda Seyfried’s titty, though its true identity is suspect due to the lack of face action. In any event, enjoy!
