Bottoms Up with the Form 4

2

by thepleasurechest

Ben, an intrepid member of our LA staff put the Jimmyjane Form 4 where the sun don’t shine! Here’s the bottom line…

The Form 4 is an incredible, powerful, and extremely pleasurable vibrating toy! I loved putting it in my butt! The Form 4′s strong vibrations shook me to my very core and let me experience a kind of sensation my asshole has never known before. When I angled the toy towards the front of my body, I could even kind of hit my prostate;  however, this would be a lot easier if the Form 4 had a slight curve. Nevertheless, for a toy that wasn’t necessarily intended for prostate vibrations, the Form 4 works great.

"Incredible, powerful and extremely pleasurable..."

The different oscillating vibrations are fun to explore, and I really like the fact that the toy can be inserted from either end. The smaller tip and larger base makes this toy great for getting your asshole opened up by using the small end first, then flipping it around to stick in the larger end. To top it off, the vibrations really helped my asshole to relax, making anal sex afterwards that much more awesome.

Vintage Lesbians, Futuristic Hotel Sex & Jon Stewart’s Silicone Weiner!

by thepleasurechest

Here’s a look back at our favorite viral videos and sex stories from last week.

The Daily Show – C#@k-Blocked Roundup – Yemen
Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook

  • Why yes, that was a Tantus Hank dildo purchased from our New York store on The Daily Show last week! And true to its fine reputation, the Tantus silicone withstood quite a beating on the “Cockblocked” news wheel.
  • Speaking of runaway penises, The Guardian chose last week to sound off on “the media myth that says men are the feckless passengers of their own insatiable sex drives.”

Looking sharp!

  • Congratulations to Staysha Randall who now holds the Guinness Record for the most body piercings in one sitting. 3200 of them, to be exact. Bravo!

No recess.

  • As summer heats up, the Village Voice reminds us that women can legally go topless in the state of New York. Let’s hear it for a public nudity law without sexist double standards!
  • On the other hand, occasionally the double standard works in women’s favor.” That’s Gawker reporting on the case of a New Zealand woman who keeps beating a flashing charge because there’s no proof she’s physically aroused. Say the cops: “If a man drops his trousers, it is easy to see he is excited, but with a woman that is not possible.” O RLY?
  • Why do women fake orgasm? It’s not just to protect your fragile ego. They might also be afraid of intimacy.
  • A study commissioned by Travelodge claims that by 2030, we’ll all be having amazing sex in cheap hotels. “Futurologist” and engineer Ian Pearson predicts:

“Video, audio, smells and tactile experiences produced using our bed or bed linen will play a key role in helping to make our dreams feel real,” said the report.

“We will be able to replay our favourite dream from a menu just like choosing a movie. Also, we will be able to link into dreams with our partner or family and friends and enjoy a shared dream experience.”

Remote virtual love making would allow individuals to “connect with their partner” while away from home, although lenses could be worn to adjust how their partner looks.

“This will enable people to change the image of their partner on a regular basis, and only they will be aware as their lover will not be able to tell what they are looking at,” the report added.

  • Finally, in honor of Pride month, here’s a lovely message from the International Gay Rodeo Association. Buck up, gay cowboys and cowgirls. It gets better for you too.

The Winners of our Jimmyjane Giveaway

0

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we asked our readers to choose between two luxury vibes from the Jimmyjane “Pleasure to the People” line– the bestselling Form 2 or the just-released Form 4. The “tooth-shaped” Form 2 got 20 votes, while the “bowling pin shaped” Form 4 got 15 votes. It’s the Form 2, by a nose! Next, we randomly selected a winner from each of the two teams.

And, the Form 2 goes to…

Madison from Cambria, CA. (We should also mention that Ms. Wilson has a sexy NSFW website here.)

Congratulations Madison! We also awarded a $20 Pleasure Chest gift card for our favorite entries in the contest. Form 2 afficionados seemed to love its whimsical design and powerful motors. Our favorite cheerleader for the Form 2 was Yan from Brooklyn who wrote:

Going for Team Form 2 all the way. Why? It’s quite simple. Aesthetics! Simply looking at it gets the juices flowing, seeing as how it reminds me of the juicy curves of the female body. That along with the fantastic reviews I’ve read (The Pleasure Chest has never done me wrong!) seal the deal.

Sadly, my partner and I are currently separated due to a nasty bed bug infestation. As such, I need our first time back together (in a month!) to be extra special. The one thing sticking out in my mind right now is a brand new sex toy. Watching her squirm and writhe in pleasure with a Form 2 would make both our night’s after a long month of loneliness.

We also love aesthetics and hate bed bugs! (And we hate the aesthetics of bed bugs, most of all.) We hope the gift card will help you find something fun for breaking your dry spell.

And The Form 4 goes to…

Mable from Inglewood, CA

Congratulations! We hope you enjoy your new toy.

Cheerleaders for the Form 4 cited its versatility, noting that it has all of the benefits of the Form 2 but with a shape suited for penetration. Our favorite fan of the Form 4 was Gabby who wrote:

Ok, this is a really hard to question to answer especially since I haven’t had the pleasure of getting to know either. My, ahem, younger girlfriend incessantly makes fun of my very vintage vibrator, but I love it and haven’t found a worthy replacement. So, there we go to window shop some options and to my humiliation they have a glass case of REALLY old vibrators and there was mine showcased as a relic (not exact model but close enough). Mine has only 2 settings, one of which would be a waste of time for anyone…unless you really are using it as a face massager, and has a really twisted curled cord that is never long enough. Confessing this to the salesgirl, she showed me the Jimmyjane Form 2. It was love at first sight! Modern, sexy, cordless, rechargeable and strong. What more could I ask for?

I didn’t buy it then, don’t ask me why, but I haven’t stopped thing about Jimmy Jane 2 until now. After reading your staffers great review, I have to say that I may have to go with Form 4 because not only does it have all that Form 2 has to offer but it can also be used as a dildo. Dreams do come true.

Congratulations, Gabby. You win a $20 gift card. We hope that you use it to upgrade your vintage vibe!

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Keep an eye on this space, because we’ll have more giveaways soon.

Full frontal “dudity,” unambiguous gayness, sexy cow costumes & more!

1

by thepleasurechest

OK, so we took Friday off and never got around to wrapping last week’s best sex links. Here they are…

This is your brain on orgasms.

  • A study in the American Psychological Association journal Emotion reported that women find brooding and proud men more sexually attractive than happy ones. Supposedly, it works the opposite for dudes, to whom happy and confident women are a turn off. Really? The good news for gender parity is that both men and women find shame sexy.

  • On SNL, two bros went ambiguously gay for Lady Gaga.

  • It’s not just Gaga. Any fan of hip hop has heard the expression, “No homo.” Sketch comics Retar Crew went viral with this video on the gay panic in music.

  • People.com editor Janet Mock came out as a transgender woman, and told trans teens that it gets better for them too.

  • A fan of the indie band Bad Lamps made this music video entirely from non-XXX scenes from porn movies. We think it’s kinda sweet.

  • It’s still perfectly legal, however, to do this on a subway in New York City.
  • Hot, right? Rachel Rabbit White wonders why some women still find male bodies gross. And Jezebel asks why women’s bodies are sexualized in Hollywood movies, while full frontal “dudity” is usually a punchline.
  • Giving us fond memories of fetish subcultures before the advent of the interwebz (yes, we are that old), Dangerous Minds dug up some flyers from the Mary Tyler Moore Masturbation Society.

Got milk?

  • Speaking of fetishes, we learned a new word last week: inflatophilia. And the costumes are so cool, we’ve got fetish envy!

  • Finally, we don’t know if there’s a Grammy category for best song about anal sex, but we think Sherry’s Vine’s Adele parody deserves some kind of prize.

Got a link we need to see? Tell us on Twitter. Follow our LA, NY and Chicago feeds!

Winners announced this weekend.

This week we’re giving away two different luxury vibes from Jimmyjane’s “Pleasure to the People” product line, created by designers Yves Béhar and Ethan Imboden. The best-selling Form 2 and the upstart Form 4 share many great qualities. They’re both made of body-safe silicone and are totally waterproof. (Yes, you really can take them in the bath!) Each comes with Jimmyjane’s nifty docking cradle/recharger. They both have a travel lock, which means they won’t suddenly start buzzing in your baggage during airport security checks. Best of all, each has four modes of vibration with five different speeds. With so many cool features in common, how could anyone choose between “the tooth” and the “bowling pin?”

That’s not for us to say. We want to know which one you would choose for your toybox. Are you on Team Form 2 or Team Form 4? Tell us, for a chance to win one of your own!

Need some hints? Our staff loves both of them. Read Mary’s rave for the Form 2 here and Jess’ testament to the Form 4 here.

This Week’s Best of the Chest

1

by thepleasurechest

Each day, we try to post amusing, informative and unusual links and articles covering the wide range of human sexuality. If you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, you’re probably already familiar with our daily feeding frenzy. For those who don’t, we decided it would be fun to post an end o’ the week review of the stuff that got our attention on the internet. This is the week’s best links from your friends at the Chest.

The Daily Show – Minneapolis Is the New Gay
Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook

  • Speaking of San Francisco, The Daily Show this week asked “Is Minneapolis gayer than San Francisco?”

Who's your daddy?

  • “For some reason I thought there were other lesbians who felt that way and that was just a part of that community. Then I realized, that’s not what being a lesbian is — that’s what being transgender is.” - Chaz Bono, on the difference between gender and orientation and his path to becoming a man.

 

  • We’re not sure how we missed this, but last month some enterprising safe sex advocates staged a most unusual stunt at the Washington Monument. Keep America safe!

  • The Good Men Project asked the perennial question: Does Size Matter? We don’t know, but Lady Gaga’s giant penis stilettos are the only reason we’d ever tune in to watch American Idol. Too bad those heels at the Fox network censored them.

The boner machine?

 

  • Finally, though this happened 10 whole days ago, we can’t resist mentioning that one of our music heroes, Black Francis (yes, from Pixies!), randomly tweeted us to say “I just got turned on.” And we don’t think he’s talking about his guitar amp.

If you also get aroused by seeing sexy stuff in your daily feed, you can follow our LA, NY and Chicago stores on Twitter.

Bowling for Orgasms: A review of the Form 4

1

by thepleasurechest

This month, we’d like to welcome Jess our new Los Angeles store manager to The Pleasure Chest family. We’d also like to announce the release of the Form 4, the newest luxury vibe from Jimmyjane. We sent Jess and the Form 4 home together. Only one of them came back to work.

"It was all strikes, all of the time."

Upon first glance of the Form 4, I wasn’t quite sold. My previous experience with the Form 2 left me numb, even on the lowest speed, and despite the sleek design I couldn’t see the Form 4 as anything but a miniature bowling pin. However, once I brought it into the bedroom, I’ll have you know there was nothing gutter ball or 7-10 split about it. It was all strikes, all of the time!

The head of the Form 4 is where the ultra powerful motor is located, so unlike other super strong vibrators, this one will not make your hand go numb (anyone looking for a little “stranger” action afterward is out of luck). It also has a slight bit of bend in the neck, which means it contours to your body wonderfully. In addition to all of this, it gives a great “full” sensation when inserted and the slight taper of the neck to the body of the toy feels incredible at the vaginal opening with some gentle (or not so gentle) thrusting action.

I feel like the range of speeds on the Form 4 is more broad than on previous Form models, which is great news for the very sensitive, the “Hitachi lover,” and everyone in between. It’s rechargeable, waterproof, made of a high grade silicone, has a three year warranty, and it makes me and my partner come every time? I couldn’t recommend this toy any more highly. It’s like it was sent straight from Heaven!

On a side note, the Form 4 is outstanding even when off and has replaced a bevy of “can’t live without” dildos in my house. If only it was harness ready… Oh! It’s also great for full body massage! Bravo, Form 4!

The winners of our Mother’s Day Giveaway

0

by thepleasurechest

This week’s contest to win a Jimmyjane Form 4 for Mother’s Day was difficult for us to judge. There were only a dozen entries, but they were each so heartfelt and candid, it felt a bit odd choosing whose mom was most deserving. So, we decided that everyone was a winner. Each of our entrants got a $10 credit to use in our online store.

After much thought, we did agree on a favorite entry. Patty W’s thoughtful tribute to her mother really touched us. Here’s what she had to say:

My mom made the biggest mistake of her life when she married my dad, but she’s always told me she’s never regretted it because it led to me. Considering my old man’s freak-outs and alcoholism, that’s really saying something. But there was no way she was going to see me raised badly, so she made sure we got out together and stayed together.

What my mom doesn’t talk about is the way she forewent relationships with men to focus on raising me. It’s not like she had a lot of time for love, anyway, since she was a single mother with less skills than she’d hoped to have. But more importantly, she saw the way her friends’ boyfriends and husbands treated their children from previous marriages, and she couldn’t stand the thought of choosing someone else over her daughter – or watching someone else mistreat me in the first place.

Now that I’m a woman, on my own after losing a long-term relationship that meant so much to me, I have started to appreciate the sacrifice of that part of her womanhood. It’s not that she wanted it to work out that way; it’s not that she hadn’t tried. But I’ve found myself wishing I could somehow repay all the nights she slept alone in the hopes of keeping me safe.

When I was in my 20s, she came to me to ask about condoms and although it was awkward, I jumped at the opportunity to keep her safe and help her seek the pleasure she’d been missing. All I really needed to know was that she had finally met someone she liked and she was going to be careful.

A couple years later, after getting home from a vacation, my boyfriend found part of a condom wrapper in our house. He was about to accuse me of something unsavory when I remembered that my mom had stayed over while we were gone. And I was too amused to be angry when she expressed embarrassment over the evidence she’d unwittingly left behind. My boyfriend wasn’t so amused, but I couldn’t begrudge the fact that she was an adult woman. (Besides, I knew she’d sterilized the area before and afterward.)

My mom is always bragging to anyone who will listen about me, but I brag to anyone who will listen about her. I’ve been agonizing over what to get her for Mother’s Day this year because I’d like to give her a gift she can use for years to come. It would be nice to give her something she can use to learn more about her own body, too, and I know the Form 4 will fit the bill. I love my Form 6 with all of my heart, so my needs are being met – but I think it’s high time my ma lived sexy. I hope you’ll agree with me!

We do agree! Your mom sounds like an amazing woman and we hope that she enjoys her new Form 4.

Thanks to Patty and to each of you who took the time to pay tribute to your mothers. We hope that Sunday is special for all of the moms out there.

The Form 4 is not your mother’s vibrator.But it could be!

13

by thepleasurechest

Introducing: the Form 4, the latest luxury vibe from the design wizards at Jimmyjane. The Form 4′s body-safe, premium silicone shaft is strong and firm, with the perfect amount of flex for G-Spot play. It’s totally waterproof, making it ideal for the bath, and has a travel lock for going on the road. Under the hood, it’s got a big, powerful motor which delivers four different modes of vibration at five levels of intensity. Best of all, the Form 4 comes with a wireless recharging base and a three year limited warranty. This is definitely not your mother’s vibrator.

But it could be…

In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re giving a Form 4 to one lucky mom.

How to enter

Post a comment on this blog, paying tribute to the mother in your life. She could be your mom, your partner, your spouse or a friend. She could be anyone you think deserves recognition on this upcoming Mother’s Day.

On Friday, at noon PST, we’ll award the Form 4 to our favorite entry. Beats sending flowers, doesn’t it?

Now, we hate to sound like Dr. Freud, but please, “Tell us all about your mother….”

Bunny Luv

by thepleasurechest

Last week’s contest to win a Vibratex Rabbit Pearl E vibrator had our comment thread overflowing with cuteness! We asked for your cutest and funniest bunny pics and videos, and you delivered. In fact, there were so many adorable submissions that we gave Pleasure Chest gift cards to the two runner-up favorites. Here they are:

The winner!

The winning bunny from Kelsey in Canada.

Runner up winner!

Steve from New Jersey says: "My girlfriend would love me forever if I won this for her, and it would make her month long school trip overseas much easier. I decided to be creative and draw a rabbit myself!! No carrots were harmed in the making of this image!"

Runner up winner!

Jessica from West Hollywood says "Wow, this was nerdy, even for me."

Here were some of the many entries that also made us squee.

Maddi's bunny tried kissing up to the judges! It almost worked!

 

We were so sorry to disappoint Zoe's bunnies.

 

Sabrina writes, "This is my pet bunny “Payne." He’s eagerly awaiting the news to find out if he won!"

 

JR's submission is so wrong. But we love it.

 

Allyson's boyfriend made this for her. Mmmm, pancakes!

 

Amy's dog disguised as a bunny. You almost had us fooled.
