Buns of Steel: The Aneros Tempo Reviewed

2

by thepleasurechest

We gave Sex Specialist Mike a Tempo and told him to stick it where the sun don’t shine. Here’s his illuminating review…

The sleek and slender shape of the Tempo makes it so easy for insertion and 100% comfortable when left inside. The shape of the handle is ideal for when I’m walking, sitting, or standing because it’s contoured to fit between the butt cheeks, but still large enough to not get sucked up into the ass. The Tempo couldn’t possibly feel any better, because the stainless steel makes it heavy. The weight puts a light pressure on my prostate, causing an awesome sensation. Another great feature of the stainless steel is the fact that I can use water based, silicone or oil based lubes when putting it in. The stainless steel is non-porous, so it’s also easy to clean with some soap and water.

"The Tempo couldn't possibly feel any better."

Last, but far from least, is the fact that the Tempo gives me a great workout. Having it inside for hours is easy and fun. My asshole is constantly squeezing on the Tempo, which makes Kegel exercises come more naturally. Even when I take it out, my muscles are still tightening up more often. It’s pretty cool.

This would also be a great toy for a woman who wants to feel the sensation of double penetration while having sex. The Tempo is so sleek that it’s not intimidating to have it in your ass. I highly recommend this toy for anyone who wants to experience some fun and easy ass play with zero drama.

Masturbating water bugs, men who like to cuddle & women who love landmarks

0

by thepleasurechest

We’ve been busy for the past couple of weeks, and haven’t had much time to blog. Today, we catch up on our favorite sex stories and kinky links making their way around the interwebs.

  • Social media has overtaken porn as the #1 online activity. We’d like to point out that these are not mutually exclusive activities. Judging from our Twitter feed, there’s also plenty of porn on social media. No word on what took third place, but we’re willing to bet it has something to do with cats.

Gagged by Facebook.

  • In other social media news, we discovered that Facebook censors the word “bondage” in event titles. Regular readers might know that we’ve had similar Facebook problems with the word “anal” and with teaching about cunnilingus.
  • In a controversial essay, journalist Mac McClelland wrote about how violent sex helped cure her PTSD. McClelland didn’t discuss consensual sadomasochism, but we think many kinky people can relate to her story.

Flying the very friendly skies.

  • SF Gate reported that the TSA allows travelers to carry vibrators, whips, chains, leashes and even handcuffs in their carry-on bags. But don’t try to bring your Njoy Eleven on the plane. “We would call that a baton-like item,” said the TSA spokesman. “It could be considered a weapon.”

  • Scientific American reported on a French insect which is the world’s loudest known animal. The humble water boatman plays its 100 decibel mating call by rubbing its own genitals.
  • A team of researchers claimed that a man’s penis size can be determined by looking at his index and ring fingers. “The team found that, in general, the lower the ratio of the lengths of the two fingers, the longer the stretched length of the penis.” Only 144 men participated in the study (Insert “sample size queen” joke here).
  • In other science news, men like to cuddle.
  • In “Everybody Calm Down: Nobody Wants to Have Sex With Your Fiancé Anyway”, an anonymous stripper demystified the most infamous of bachelor party rituals.

  • The San Francisco City Clinic shared its archive of safe sex and anti-VD posters from the last 100 years. (Via Violet Blue).
  • Cory Silverberg taught us how to enhance our orgasms, while Sex Nerd Sandra schooled us on how not lose a toy in our butts.
  • Adweek ranked the 50 gayest ads ever made.

  • Finally, we stumbled across “Married to the Eiffel Tower,” an absolutely fascinating documentary about object sexuality. If you can tear yourself away from your Hitachi for an hour, it’s well worth viewing.

1, 2 & 3! Working Out with Ami

1

by thepleasurechest

Liz from our NY store gave her PC muscles a workout with the Ami Vaginal Exerciser Kit. Here’s a progress report…

While I can’t claim that after a month of using these that my PC muscles are strong enough to break glass, I can say that they’re a lot of fun. I love that this is a system. Although I scoffed at the cute little Ami 1, (ahem, I am NOT a beginner) I gave it a whirl. If you bounce and jiggle around, or are just a general spazz like me, you can definitely feel the little rumbling of this toy inside you. It’s subtle, but enough to add a fun twist to your day. I also did some of the recommended exercises in the manual. I’ve never actually done Kegel exercises with a toy to intentionally add resistance so that experience was… interesting.

"You can definitely feel the little rumbling of this toy inside of you."

Slightly smaller and heavier, Ami 2 is my new best friend. I wore this around for close to three weeks. The experience was essentially the same as the Ami 1– a little rumbly, a little fun, but nothing too crazy. I did the recommended exercises with this one, too. It was slightly more difficult but I could see how this might be fun for someone who is concerned with their PC muscles being uber-toned.

On to Ami 3. OK, this little fucker kicked my ass. Ami 3 is totally heavy and much smaller; it practically fell out when I jumped up and down to test it. It also doesn’t have the same “rumble effect” as the other two Ami weights do. I tried to do the exercises with Ami 3 and couldn’t; it pulled right out. I wore this for a couple of days but then my paranoia kicked in and thoughts of it falling out on the train sent me back to Ami 2. Sigh. I guess I have some work to do.

Finally, I’m a sucker for the little inserts that come with the toys we carry. To my delight, the Ami manual is full of little tidbits of info. Not only does it have product knowledge about the toy, but also about the female body, Dr. Kegel, the benefits of strong PC muscles and how to find and exercise them. All in all, I think this is a great product.
