4 Tips for a Sexier Valentine’s Day

2

by thepleasurechest

Picking the right toys isn’t enough. For a truly sexy Valentine’s Day, it’s always best to make plans for play. Here are four of our favorite tips, paired with some popular affordable toys.

1) Try out some roleplay in the bedroom. Let’s Play Doctor is one of our favorite games of dress up and strip down.

Let’s Play Doctor $16.95

2) Use bondage tape to make an outfit. Invite your lover to (carefully) cut it off. Don’t forget your trusty safety scissors.

Pleasure Tape $9.95

3) Make a replica of your partner’s penis. You can use it when you’re apart and missing him. For more fun, bend him over, lube him up and fuck him with his own cock!

Clone-A-Willy Penis Molding Kit $34.95

4) Pick out a remote controlled vibrator. One of you can wear it, while the other holds the controls. Use it while out at a restaurant or party, for discreet fun in public.


Cry Baby Remote Control Bullet $64.95

Open Letter to the TSAon Traveling with Sex Toys

3

by thepleasurechest

A little over a month ago, we wrote to the TSA with some questions about the rules for travelling with sex toys. There has been no response. We’ve decided to post our letter here, in the hopes that our readers can share their experiences, and add to the list of questions. TSA, are you listening?

To Whom it May Concern,

I am writing on behalf of The Pleasure Chest, one of the oldest adult toy boutiques in the country. We have been fielding many questions from our customers about which adult toys can be stowed in carry-on luggage and which cannot. We would very much appreciate your clarification on the following questions, so that we may share it with our readers.

We understand that products made of silicone show up on X-ray scanners as a “liquid” and will therefore be removed for inspection. Can you confirm this?

Are travelers allowed to carry BDSM-related items like whips, handcuffs, riding crops and leather restraints in a carryon bag, or must these be checked?

We know that travelers are restricted to 3.4 oz. of liquid in bottles. Many of the lubricants that we sell have a creamy consistency. Does the rule about liquids also apply to creams?

Are travelers allowed to wear buttplugs? If a buttplug is discovered during a body scan or patdown, will the traveler be required to remove it?

Some of our customers use electrostimulation or TENS units which use electrical current to stimulate muscles. Can such devices be packed into carryon luggage? Can they be checked?

Can travelers carry vibrators or dildos in carry on baggage? Are there any specific materials that are prohibited (metal, plastic, glass, wood)?

Some of our customers wear chastity devices made of metal. Can these individuals ask to be searched in a private area to avoid going through the metal detectors? Also, will they be required to remove these devices?

Some of our customers wear “The Diva Cup,” which is an insertable silicone device, used as an alternative to tampons and pads. Will this show up on a body scan? And if so, will it need to be removed?

If a traveler is concerned about their bag being inspected in public, can they request a private inspection?

Is there anything else that might be helpful for our readers to know?

I appreciate your attention to our queries, and look forward to your response. Thank you.

Best Regards,

Matt Cornell
Social Media Guru & Content Writer

Be-Dazzling with Bijoux Mimi Rhinestone Pasties

2

by thepleasurechest

Kitty, our resident burlesque performer, agreed to try out the Bijoux Mimi Rhinestone Pasties. She’s ready for an encore performance…

When we first started selling these pasties, I was so intrigued and drawn to the unique shape and color. These are great because they leave the nipples exposed and the colors are beautiful, especially the silver. As a stage performer, they worked perfectly in my show. They gave off the illusion of crystal rhinestones individually placed around my breasts and from a distance they were very brilliant and drew the audience directly to them.

"Ultra sexy and pairs well stockings and a garter belt or with just a smile!"

They’re also easy to apply. They are webbed together by a clear adhesive that holds the shape of the pastie. They stayed on well, even when I was sweating. While doing my finale, which involved pouring milk all over my body, they also stayed in place. When I removed them, I had no irritating marks. I think they are a one time use product, however, if you peel them off carefully, they can be reapplied with a little pastie glue. Once you peel them off, you have to be careful not to let the webbing fold or stick because this can ruin them by either tearing the webbing or losing some of the gems.

These pasties can complement any outfit. I’ve also worn them under a sheer blouse, which looked very hot. But in order for me to legally display them in public, I had to cover up my nipples. I did this by taking a pair of nude Nippies and cutting them into the shape of just the nipple area then placing the Mimi pasties over them.

Ultra sexy and pairs well with stockings and a garter belt or just with a smile!

Best Toys for Holiday Travel

0

by thepleasurechest

As the holidays approach, we’ve fielded many of your questions about tips for traveling with sex toys.

Will my chastity belt show up on a body scan?

Can I pack electro-stim toys in a carryon?

Do I have to remove my buttplug? 

There so many stumpers that we fired off a letter to the TSA with a list of burning questions. We haven’t heard back from them yet, but when we do, we’ll share their answers right here.  In the meantime, here are some of the best products for travel.

Travel-size Lube!

You probably know that any bottle of liquid that contains more than 3.4oz. is prohibited in a carryon. But who wants to take big bottles of lube and pour them into smaller containers? Here’s one solution: sample packets! This Sliquid Naturals Lube Cube contains 14 single servings of natural water-based lube. As a bonus, you can try out each of their delicious flavors. Or if you prefer a flavor-free lube, try our very own Pleasure Chest Intimate Touch Personal Lubricant, which comes in a 2oz. pump bottle. It’s the perfect amount for that long holiday weekend.

 

A Discreet Vibrator

There are many vibrators which will fly under the radar of prying parents and eagle-eyed airport security alike. One of the most affordable solutions is a small pocket vibrator. The aptly-named Tantus Little Secret is a tiny, sensational bullet vibe with a simple, silicone sleeve. It’s so small, it can even fit in your pocket. Choose from three fun designs. If you’re feeling in a James Bond mood, try the Grrl Toyz Incognito Lipstick Vibe, a discreet clitoral vibrator disguised as a tube of lipstick! If you’re craving something fancier, the Jimmyjane Little Chroma is a slender metal vibrator with a replaceable motor! It’s also waterproof, for bathtub play. Check out our complete selection of discreet vibrators.

Toys with Travel Locks!

No matter how well you pack your private sex toys, the contents of a bag will sometimes shift. And if the stars are aligned in a certain way, or if Murphy’s Law is in effect, your vibrator will suddenly get turned on and start buzzing wildly. To avoid the embarrassment of vibrating luggage, many high-end toys now have a travel lock. One of our favorites is the gorgeous Lelo Isla, a silicone luxury vibe with a unique shape. It’s also got a whisper quiet motor, very handy for discreet play while staying with relatives. If a rechargeable toy with a travel lock is not in your budget, you can always just remove the batteries!

 

Traveling While Kinky

If your tastes are a bit kinkier, there are some extra obstacles to traveling with your toys. We suggest you leave the heavy equipment at home and travel light. Our Silk Entangle Ties are perfect for quick, comfortable bondage, and will pass undetected through any inspection, official or otherwise. Whether you’re staying in your aunt’s guest room or the Motel 6, you never know whether you’ll have decent bedposts for a bondage scenario. That’s why we suggest bringing along this Under the Bed Restraint System, which uses nylon straps and velcro restraints to turn any mattress into a spontaneous bondage bed.

Got any tips or ideas for traveling while sexy? Share them in the comments!

by thepleasurechest

We received a lot of great entries in our “Submit a Slogan” contest for the SpareParts La Palma. We challenged readers to come up with some catchy copy for this handy harness and you delivered!

Our favorite slogan was submitted by Donald in Cincinnati, Ohio. His suggested tagline:

“Can I get a High Five on this? Or How about a low 6″?”

Down and dirty and very clever. A high five and a free La Palma to Donald!

We also picked a runner up winner. Thanks to Melanie in Los Angeles, who sent us the following copy, tweaked for the coming holidays:

“Looking for that perfect ‘Hole-a-day’ gift? Use this mitten on your kitten! Purrfect stocking stuffer, or just to stuff her ;) Too soon for Xmas? Put one on each hand for a real Trick or Treat!!

Nicely played. Melanie. We’re sending a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card your way.

If you didn’t win, don’t worry, we’ll have more SpareParts giveaways throughout the month. Now, how about a big hand for all those who participated?
