A Slammin’ Review of the Door Jam Sex Sling

1

by thepleasurechest

Mary, our fearless Sex Specialist was just hangin’ around the house with her partner and the Sportsheets Door Jam Sex Sling. The verdict? An open and shut case…

"I had a feeling of weightlessness."

Everything here comes ready to go and is pretty self explanatory. Surprisingly, the box was more difficult to open than the sling was to set up. I was a little weary at first but after extensive weight tests and pulling and yanking on the sling, I felt satisfied I wouldn’t land on my ass. It supported the weight of my partner and he’s got about 70lbs on me so we decided to just go for it.

It was a little awkward getting into the sling but as soon as I was situated, I was surprisingly comfortable and had a pretty good range of movement. I could slide my back down the door to push my hips farther out into the room, which was great for G-spotting. I had a feeling of weightlessness. I felt more exposed (in a good way) as I was basically spread open and projecting out into the room. My partner was overjoyed. He said that it required little effort on his part to get a wide range of motion. The Door Jam Sex Sling is now his favorite toy that we’ve acquired!

The only modification I would suggest would be to include a door jam pad for the back. We have old doors that are sturdy enough for the sling but they have inlaid panels that became irritating after a while. At any rate, it’s an awesome, quick way to have a swing nearly anywhere very quickly. I highly recommend it.

After Hours with the Club Vibe

1

by thepleasurechest

Jenae, our intrepid Sex Specialist, popped the Club Vibe in her pants and hit the dance floor. Here’s the buzz.

I might be a club-goer. I might be that girl who happens to be at every party you thought you couldn’t get on the list for. My friends call me Lesbian Google, because I can find any good club night within a 15 mile radius.

Yup. I’m that girl. The girl who is always ready for a club night and a good time. The Club Vibe is “Pleasure Remixed” and I got a chance to remix some pleasure one night at a Chicago hotspot. The club I chose is open till 4am and known for attracting local oddities so I knew I wouldn’t look out of place with a wire sticking out of my pants. Yes, the Club Vibe is wired from bullet to remote. So it’s not a discreet as some might like.

The remote is actually a little receiver that picks up ambient noise from whatever space you’re in. If you are wearing the receiver box like a pager, be aware your clothes will be creating most of the shuffle noise you are “receiving” in your pants. I decided to go for the gusto and not care if anyone saw the wire poking out of my dress. I stealthily inserted the little bullet into the panty gusset and turned it on.  In the bathroom the club vibe picked up on the bass right away. There was a steady “boom boom boom” that got me really excited to join in on the fun!

I walked outside and got a HUGE jolt. The Club Vibe definitely picks up on all the noise around you and does not have discernible taste. Once it hears the nightlife, it’s got to boogie and that boogie will burn your clit off!  My advice? Steer clear of the clubs with this vibe but definitely take it out to any smaller bar with a nice back beat and lots of strangers conversing. You will definitely not be bored with the background chatter!

Hey Sailor!

1

by thepleasurechest

Mary from our LA store smuggled a Sailor Softskin Packer home in her pants, and filed this report.

"I always imagine myself with a small cock."

I always imagine myself with a small cock. It suits my body type, and when you don’t pack everyday a little goes a long way. With that said, the packer I’ve had for years was always a little too small, though it was better than the next enormous size up. The Sailor 4″ is really just the right size for me. It also has the added feature of a hard inner core with a softer outside, giving it a very realistic feel. The Sailor Softskin Packer looks great in my pants and has a nice weighty bounce to it. The only drawback is that the color is a bit too orange making it not so convincing when I whip it out in broad daylight. Not a big issue as I prefer to show it off in poor lighting situations anyways.

Lasso Lovin’

0

by thepleasurechest

“Oliver” from our LA store roped himself a Rascal Cocktie Set and filed this review:

The Rascal Cocktie Set comes with two stretchy rubber lasso-style rings with four beads for tightening and loosening them. I found the rings wonderfully flexible, durable, and versatile. The beads can create multiple rings out of one, for many uses- cock ring, shaft ring, ball separators, and any combination you can imagine. They’re comfortable to wear for short periods of time, and the stretchiness means they’re easy to put on and take off, even without moving the beads around too much.

One word of caution- don’t pull the beads too far towards the open end of the rubber material! I pulled one completely off just to see how easy it is to get back on, and the answer was simple- it’s impossible, at least for me. Cleanup is easy– just use a little liquid soap and water, and then let ‘em air dry.  Overall, this is a great cockring for first-timers and experienced players alike. Rope ‘em!

“The best little vibrator I’ve ever had.”

2

by thepleasurechest

Mary from our LA store took home the Jimmyjane Form 2. She’s been abuzz about it ever since…

The Form 2 is the best little vibrator I’ve ever had. Despite its size, the vibration is surprisingly strong when you turn it up. The intensity of the sensation seems to come from the vibrations in each ear bouncing off of each other. I’ve never been much for pulsations but when the separate motors in the ears get going on the stuttering mode it feels so good, it’s almost overwhelming.

"When the separate motors in the ears get going on the stuttering mode it feels so good, it’s almost overwhelming."

The vibration on the highest setting is comparable to the Hitachi Magic Wand but without that vibe’s noise, size and cord tethering you to the wall. It’s super quiet and small and holds its charge for a very long time. I really couldn’t recommend it more. I’ve gotten really into using it in combination with my other favorite toy– the Pure Wand from Njoy – the best G-spotter of all time.

Two fingers up! We salute the Two Dildo.

0

by thepleasurechest

Our Chicago staff member Jenae slipped her fingers inside a Two Dildo and filed this report.

I love sex education. I keep on top of current sex related events the way Joanna Angel keeps on top of James Deen. Porn girls follow me on Twitter! So when I heard buzz around a brand new lesbian toy my pulse quickened.  See, I am also a glorified lover of the ladies. The only reason I know my way around a penis is because I may or may not watch entirely too much porn.

"I felt more connected to the experience of penetration than I do when playing with a phallic toy. This feeling felt…real!"

A self proclaimed “first lesbian sex toy from France,” The Wet for Her Two Dildo has been a topic of note with almost every queer sex educator I meet.  At first, we all thought the same thing: No. Why should I be reduced to getting it on with two abnormally large fingers? This ain’t no tailgating party darlin’, so leave the foam fingers at home!

Still, I wanted to give it a shot. The packaging is hot.  Sleek, stylish with a black and white picture of two very European looking ladies suggestively posing on the back of the box.  Their website explains “Wet For Her chose to respond (to phallic items on the market) with a good dose of style and two fingers of humor!” With that in mind I took the Two Dildo home and laughed my way to a great orgasm. Seriously, from first lube what looks like two cocked fingers twice the size of my own, I felt more connected to the experience of penetration than I do when playing with a phallic toy. This feeling felt…real! Like maybe there was a “well hung” lady in the bed next to me. It allowed my imagination to take on more realistic scenarios.

Like a finger Avatar for G-spotting, finding the right angle is easy with these come hither fingers. The thinness of the silicone allows you to feel more of your lover through the toy and since the thumb is free to roam around the clit, it really does lend itself to traditional queer girl sex.  It’s safe, sexy and silicone. I may not feel comfortable to bring it out on a first play date but it will certainly be on my personal menu more often.

Cobra Libre “made me cum like a freight train.”

2

by thepleasurechest

Matt from our Chicago store took the new Cobra Libre from Fun Factory out for a spin, and filed this report…

First off, the toy itself is much larger than images online make it seem. This is a good thing! It looks sort of like a cross between an ice-hockey zamboni and a car you might see in the movie TRON. Somehow, this made me want to stick my boner in there. I’m usually not the typical dude that gets turned on by sports stuff and cars, but I guess I’m a closeted jock or frat boy or something. Yikes. Anyways.

"If you needed to take a semen sample for whatever reason, this would be a great toy to use!"

There are good things and there are one or two bad things about this toy. The good: it feels great! It’s very unique in that it encapsulates the head of the penis, where the most sensation is. Very smart! It’s rechargeable, so you don’t need to buy batteries. It’s waterproof, so you can get lube or other liquids all over it without worrying about damaging the toy. This makes cleaning very easy. Most importantly, it feels amazing. It has a bunch of different vibration modes, so you won’t get bored. It pulses, escalates, etc. Amazing. It has low, medium and high speeds. The vibration is intense. It felt like it was surging through my whole body at one point! Crazy. When you blow a load, it’s collected pretty easily inside the toy, so you can just dump it and wash it out. If you needed to take a semen sample for whatever reason, this would be a great toy to use!

The bad things about the toy are very slight. The control is a sensitive three-button touch pad. It’s a little TOO sensitive. A couple times I accidentally grazed the touch pad and it changed modes, which is annoying, but not terribly frustrating. Also, it seems like the touch pad doesn’t react well when it gets lube on it. I’m a little enthusiastic when it comes to lube use, so maybe I used too much. Either way, when I did want to change modes, it seemed hard to change if there was lube on the control. Again, it was annoying, but wasn’t that big of a deal. So the touch pad was both too sensitive at times and other times not sensitive enough. But again, no big deal. It still made me cum like a freight train.

In summary, this toy is awesome. The negatives are slight. Altogether, I enjoy it VERY highly and can’t wait to use it again. The price tag is a little hefty, but it’s designed to last 500 charge cycles, so it’ll give you pleasure for a long time. I imagine this toy will be used all the way up to that 500th charge!

Anal August: Amanda’s Review of Fun Factory’s Bootie

0

by thepleasurechest

Well, the toy Bootie, not their actual backside.

Anal pleasure ahoy!

At first I was skeptical about this way too appropriately-named butt plug. You see, I’ve been burned (not literally, ew) by petite sized butt plugs before. A lot of them seem better engineered for flying out of your ass at terrifying speeds than staying in there and bringing the pleasure. Bootie is different. The tapered tip made it easy to slide in, even without an assistant, and once inside it really stayed put! I walked around, I brushed my teeth, and I even sat down, which is when the flatness of the base really came in handy. It nestles nicely between the cheeks and you would barely know it was there… except for the awesome internal sensations! I’ll admit it, I am a bit of an anal slut, so that helped, but the sweet part was I could feel it stimulating my G-spot through my anal wall. I’m sorry I just said anal wall, it doesn’t sound very sexy, but I couldn’t think of another way to say it. Bootie was also very comfortable to wear during sex and the curve guided the dick nicely toward my G-spot.

Recap: Loved the feel (and easy cleanup) of the smooth silicone, easy to get in, stayed in, felt amazing in. All in all a perfect butt plug for beginners and anyone else who likes mild to moderate anal sensations.
