The Winners of Our Aneros Tempo Giveaway

1

by thepleasurechest

We got over 30 entries in our contest for the Tempo, a beautiful new stainless steel butt toy from Aneros. The randomly selected winner is Nathan from Chicago. Congratulations Nathan, we hope that your Anal August is filled with prostate pleasure.

Aneros sent us these nifty gift bags containing a set of the Peridise Unisex Anal PC Toys, a Marskman Lube Shooter, a polyester carrying bag and an Aneros tote. It’s a $70 value!

Since there were so many other good entries, we’ve awarded these bags as runner up prizes to a couple of our favorite answers.

First, there was this entry from Lady Henrietta from Los Angeles, who described her first anal experience with her current boyfriend, while at an anime convention.

While in the hotel room we had a bit to drink and one thing leads to another and we initiate intimacy. Now I was dressed as Catwoman in a skin tight black body suit and corset. And he was wearing my Lolita-cat dress; complete with white frilly stockings, red bows, and kitty tail. This man is ripped and if he flexed his muscles hard enough he would have ripped my dress open. So this man is no sissy in real life or in bed!

I had him tied up and spread eagled on the bed when I did my first female on male ass play session with him. It was very hot and arousing for me feeling him squirm and moan when I inserted my tongue, fingers, mini vibrator and my glass plug inside him. (I always come prepared at these conventions!)

Hot! We hope you and your partner can nerd out with the goodies in the gift bag.

Next up was Alissia from North Hollywood who said:

Well, as noted in the oral sex class, the anus has the most nerves second only to the clit (sorry guys, the penis has fewer than either), so why not explore that. My GF and I enjoy ass play a lot, so this could be interesting.

We’re suckers for students who pay attention in class, so the gift bag goes to Alissia!

If you didn’t win, don’t fret. We’ll be having more giveaways throughout the month. If the Aneros gift bag arouses you, don’t forget that we’re giving them away with the purchase of any Aneros product during Anal August. That includes online orders too!

It’s Anal August. Who Wants an Aneros Tempo?

32

by thepleasurechest

It’s that time of year again. Yes, it’s Anal August! Whether you’re a cheeky novice or an advanced explorer, we want to help you get in touch with your butt.

If you live near one of our three retail stores, you can attend free classes offering education in everything from strap on sex to spanking. In addition, we’re partnering with Aneros to give away some of their newest anal toys.

Today, we want to introduce you to a real beauty. Meet the Aneros Tempo. Made of flawless, smooth stainless steel, the Tempo is like a work of art, for your ass. The name is no accident. The Tempo’s strategically-placed knobs trigger the natural rhythms of your inner and outer sphincters causing you to quiver with joy. Men and women can both enjoy the Tempo. And because it’s steel, this is also a great toy to warm up or cool off when you’re in the mood for temperature play.

Win a Tempo

Do you want to spend some quality time with a Tempo? Post a comment here and tell us about your relationship with your butt. Have you gotten acquainted with it yet? Tell us what you like. If you’re new, tell us why you want to try.

You don’t have to use your real name if you’re feeling shy, but please do leave us an email address so we can contact you. On Thursday at noon PST, we’ll pick a random entry to win the Tempo. It’s that simple.

Bottoms up!

Foot Nipples, Sexsomniacs & GDP Size Queens

0

by thepleasurechest

Here are our favorite links from the week’s feed.

Holy homoeroticism Batman!

  • i09 posted this picture of a statue of Batman and Superman recently, um, erected in Rome.
  • Gizmodo reported on the curious case of a woman with a full-grown nipple on the bottom of her foot. If you want to see, you’ll just have to click.
  • We shot this neat video at ANE of a representative from AL Enterprises demonstrating the CB6000 male chastity device.

  • This demonstration of Victorian-era undergarments proved that bodice-ripping was hard work.
  • Google Plus has been spreading faster than herpes, but Violet Blue warned that the site’s policies are not likely to be friendly to sexual content. Twitter remains a porn paradise.
  • “No, I’m not cheating on my husband, nor did I slip him a roofie. He’s the only man I have sex with, but half the time he doesn’t remember it. That’s because Leo suffers from a rare sleep condition called sexsomnia, which causes him to engage in sexual acts in his sleep.” SEXzzzz!
  • Check out the rogue’s gallery of sleazy singles submitted to Douchebags of Grindr. DO NOT WANT.
  • Indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg picked his ten favorite sex scenes from the movies. What did he miss?

  • This week, we also learned how to flirt. Apparently, it’s all about EYE CONTACT.
  • Stephen Colbert told queer and questioning youth that It Gets Better.
  • A news story found the silver lining in our economic recession. Adult toy sales are booming!
  • Size matters? A study from the University of Helsinki claimed a link between a country’s average penis length and its GDP.

  • Finally, we’ve seen a lot of PSAs for AIDS awareness, but none quite as fun as this animated (and NSFW) ad spotted by Queerty.

Funeral strippers, Navajo Buttsex Pillows & Sean Connery Nude!

0

by thepleasurechest

Here are all of our favorite links from last week’s feed.

Beat the heat.

  • USA Today illustrated a story on the summer heat wave with this highly suggestive visual aid. (h/t Boing Boing)
  • i09 reported on the unusual tradition of “funeral strippers” in rural Taiwan.
  • Researchers announced that the drug Truvada may help stop the spread of HIV. In one study, men and women taking the pill cut their risk of acquiring the virus by 78%.
  • Sociologists reported that women are more comfortable with “sexting” than men. ORLY?
  • A study of female twins suggested that sexual orientation and “gender conformity” are genetically inherited.

  • Japanese scientists unveiled a robot mouth that can sing. Your Fleshlight simply sucks by comparison.
  • When we discovered that someone had found our blog by Googling “Navajo sex pillows,” we decided to take a closer look at the odd search terms that drive traffic to our site. Bonus: We illustrated it with cats!

  • Also last week, a neighbor of ours dropped off a disc of Fantasize a gay porn feature shot in our LA store in 1984! Unfortunately we had to cut all of the naughty bits, resulting in 5 minutes of mostly wordless cruising and personalized customer service.

Dungeons & Dildos?

  • The dildos made by Phoenix-based Bad Dragon made us want to dust off our 20 sided dice. Pictured above: the Gryphon. Other offerings include The Tentacle and Razor the Doberman.

  • Jim Behrle shared his Kama Zzztra, new ancient sex positions scrawled on Post-it notes.

Sean Connery, art model.

  • Finally, Dangerous Minds wrote about the rare, surreal softcore Japanese anime Belladonna of Sadness and Fleshbot tipped us to this playful pictorial of two Super Gay Mario Brothers.

Escape Carmageddon & Detour to Pleasure!

0

by thepleasurechest

Hey LA. Are you ready for Carmageddon? This Friday evening, a ten mile stretch of the 405 will close for 53 hours. By all estimates, this will be a disaster for anyone who drives a car in Los Angeles.

If you must drive this weekend, you’re very likely to be stuck in some apocalyptic traffic. To make things more bearable, and to keep your stress low, we recommend sinking down in the driver’s seat and letting your hands wander south. Obviously we don’t support distracted driving, but if you’re at a dead stop, why not make the most of it? After all, orgasm reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and sends calming endorphins throughout your body.

We want to help you get there! With our BOGO “Double Your Buzz” promotion this month, when you buy any vibrating toy, you can get a 2nd one for half off.

Here’s a handful of discreet toys to help get your sex drive in gear.

Pucker up!

Grrl Toyz Incognito Lipstick Vibe
Disguised as a tube of lipstick, this little vibe is great for coming wherever you’re going. It takes a single AAA battery and delivers a discreet buzz whenever you need it.

$24.95

The strong, but silent type.

Fun Factory Layaspot

This ergonomically designed vibe fits in the palm of your hand. One click delivers strong and silent vibrations sure to drive you to distraction.

$59.95

 

A playlist in your panties.

Club Vibe

The Club Vibe puts your playlist in your panties. It can be plugged into an iPod or any other portable music player. Switch to ambient mode, and it will vibrate in response to your car stereo, traffic noise, or even your passenger’s voice!

$54.95

Ring of power.

Jimmyjane Iconic Ring

Even cocks get stuck in gridlock. If you’re a dude gearing up for a long haul, slip into this super stretchy cockring. It’s got powerful vibrations, sensational texture and two gears– continuous or activated.

$36

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.

Furries Invade Pittsburgh, Weird Al Goes Gaga & Gay Marriage Comes to NY

2

by thepleasurechest

Here are all the links we liked last week!

  • In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, or chained to a bed (lucky!) all weekend you probably already know that the state of New York legalized gay marriage late Friday night. You could read any number of articles about this historic vote, but we prefer this animated report from the geniuses at Taiwan News.

Here comes the bride.

  • Speaking of marriage, we wonder what the creator of this “feminist wedding dress” thinks about tying the knot.
  • A new study claimed that women’s “gaydar” functions best during ovulation, while another suggested that women are more likely to achieve simultaneous orgasm when their male partners are hot.

  • From hot to cold. Nearly 400 people in Wales stripped off and jumping into freezing water to break the world’s record for the largest skinny dip and to raise funds for cancer research.
  • Our friend Jamye Waxman reported on five reasons why porn might be teaching you bad sex. And they’re not the reasons you might think.
  • Despite what you’ve seen in movies, time travel and sex just don’t mix. That’s what a new study of brine shrimp (sea monkeys!) indicated anyways.

  • Cracked investigated the ancient art of the dick joke, showing that penis drawings and potty humor are older than we think.

  • Over 4,500 furries returned to Pittsburgh last weekend for the 6th annual Anthrocon. The city expected to make $5.3 million from the event, and hotels were packed, with attendees sleeping four to a room at the Westin. Woof!

  • “When Shubin was a 17-year-old high school student, his stepmother became pregnant with twins. Doctors advised her not to engage in sex throughout the high-risk pregnancy—so Shubin’s father, Steve, nosed around for an alternative form of release. When Steve couldn’t locate a realistic stand-in vagina on the market, he began drawing plans to craft his own.”

    Yes, that’s the origin story for the Fleshlight, the world’s most popular male masturbation toy.

 

  • Food porn? Queerty dug up this clip from “Cooking with Beefcake Too!” a bawdy cooking video from the 80s, hosted by a lecherous Jaye P. Morgan.
  • Crystal at Autostraddle shared her top 10 lesbian romance novels.
  • The Beaver Whisperer talked about STIs in the lesbian community.
  • As numerous gossip sites informed us, Jennifer Love Hewitt is a proud customer of our LA store. But where is this Pleasure Chest “bar” the paparazzi are talking about? We’re thirsty!

  • Last, but by no means least, Weird Al Yankovic released his long-awaited parody of Lady Gaga, proving that he can out-queer the reigning queen of pop.
