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.

Some of your favorite sexy stars come to The Pleasure Chest!

Let’s get this out of the way: I love my job. I love that my work involves writing about sex, talking about sex, and helping people have better sex.

That being said, being an adult film star sounds awesome. The work is undoubtedly hard, but it also seems fun. The costumes, the toys, the naked people, the not being chained to a desk for hours… unless that’s what the scene calls for, of course.

The porn stars I’ve had the opportunity to meet while working at TPC range from simply delightful to nothing short of inspiring, and sometimes it’s hard not to get a little bit star-struck.  In fact, it took everything I had inside not to drop down on my knees shrieking “NOOOOOOOO!” the day a certain beautiful, talented, and famously filthy adult superstar came into the LA store and I was out of town.

The good news is, all will be redeemed this month with our March Porn Madness workshops and appearances at The Pleasure Chest Los Angeles.

On March 9th, we’re hosting a discussion panel “Sex Savvy: Smart Women in Porn“, featuring legendary adult film stars Candida Royalle, Nina Hartley, and Jane Hamilton (aka Veronica Hart), each of whom have now stepped behind the camera and/or become sexy, savvy business women. Joining them will be erotic performer, model, muse, staff favorite, and star of my screen saver April Flores. In the moderator’s chair, “the next generation of sex educator”, writer, and erotic film director Jamye Waxman will get the discussion on the sex industry going, as well as get the other ladies to reveal some of their hottest tales and tricks.

On March 11th, award-winning stars Jessica Drake and Kaylani Lei will join us for a meet and greet, signing merchandise and hanging out with fans. On the 24th, Jessica (who is also a writer/director, BTW) will be teaching a workshop on blow-jobs. That’s right, an AVN Award winner for “Best Oral Sex Scene” teaching us her best BJ tricks. This is too much excitement. Somebody get me to a fainting couch.

Check out the full list of March Porn Madness workshops (yes, there’s more!) after the cut.

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!

April Flores in the flesh!

Well, she was in our LA store last week getting some lube for her latex dress (you know, typical errand stuff), and while she was here she graciously signed the outer packaging of her fabulous cyberskin pussy (the first plus-size pussy toy on the market!).

This was, of course, really exciting news for the LA staff, who are all big fans of Ms. Flores.  I started following her blog a few years ago and had the pleasure of meeting her at a video release about a year ago. She is every bit as sweet and sexy as a person as she is on camera and on her Twitter. Looking forward to watching her star rise, and to watching her be nude, sassy, and hot, of course.

Jersey Shore XXX

1

by thepleasurechest

I was poking around Fleshbot when I came across this juicy meatball of news. I’ve gotta say, as the Jersey Shore phenomenon is sweeping the nation (and me off my feet), a Jersey Shore porn spoof is absolute genius. It’s kind of funny to see the spoof cast side-by-side with the real cast because the real cast pretty much look like porn stars as it is, but it looks like the casting so far has hit the mark.

Well, except for TJ Cummings as Pauly D. because, as anyone who watches the show knows, Pauly’s hair is a star in its own right. Hopefully by the time production begins, TJ will have had plenty of time to work on his blow dry and hair gel game, so that he too will have locks like a glorious man-tiara.

Hopefully they'll airbrush on Pauly's amazing tattoos!

Also, I don’t care if they have to draw it on with a Sharpie, the Cadillac tattoo is an absolute MUST.
