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.

Bottoms Up!

by thepleasurechest

We learn today from our friends at  Carnal Nation about an innovative cocktail served recently at a gay bar in Finland. Selling for a cool 69 euros, this drink replaces ice cubes with a chilled, stainless steel butt plug from N Joy. Is this the first fusion of buttplugs and booze? We doubt it. But it got us to thinking about how to liven up our next cocktail party or sex toy social. How about a White Russian garnished with the classic Aneros? Or a very dirty Martini with a Kegelcisor swizzle stick? On second thought, this is a terrible idea.

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.

Not phallic: Fabulous! Not a vagina: Still feels fine(a)!

0

by thepleasurechest

Yesterday I read an article on MSNBC about a sex shop in Bahrain. It was really fascinating to read about how this little shop is thriving in the Middle East. According to the store’s owner, sex toys are permitted in Islamic law between married couples as long as they don’t replicate “sensitive parts of the body” (I’m going to go ahead and assume she means genitals) but things like vibrating rings are ok. She says she hasn’t really had any trouble from the people and the government (a few things get tangled in customs), and it’s certainly refreshing to hear about sexuality and pleasure discussed openly, in any country.

Of course, we love our Shafts and Fleshlights like crazy here at The Pleasure Chest, but there are a lot of great toys that are more… discreet.

The newest of which are Tenga products from Japan, which look like bottles of lotion or shampoo but house a remarkably realistic and sensual-feeling masturbation sleeve, pre-lubed and ready to go. Sticking my finger in one of those things is right up there with waiting in line at Coachella on my “Times I Wish I Had a Penis” list.

Then there’s the new Better Than Chocolate vibrator by Nomi Tang. This luxury vibe feels smooth and silky in the hand, with an ergonomic shape (in your face, carpal tunnel!) and easy-to-use touch-sensitive controls. That’s right, the speeds go up and down and even lock with a swipe of your finger. It’s an iPad for your clit! Love.

Also, while I fully advocate sex toys for non-coupled (and non-married) people, it should be noted that both of these toys can be fun for two as well. Give your hand-jobs a hand with the Tenga sleeves, or nestle Better Than Chocolate between two bodies for simultaneous sensations. Fun for everyone!

Does the G-spot exist?

0

by thepleasurechest

I know, I know. For some of us, this is like asking whether water is wet, while for others it’s a LOST-esque mystery involving space, time, and a bunch of guys wandering, seemingly aimlessly, around your “tropical island.”

A recent study done at a British university concluded, however, that the G-spot does not exist.

We here at The Pleasure Chest, being huge fans of sexual science, would like to encourage women to do a study of their own, preferably involving a sexy state of mind, lots of lube, and a nicely curved pair of fingers or one of our favorite G-spot toys. The G-Ki, Pure Wand, and Gigi come to mind.

The truth is, no two bodies are the same, and the G-spot is not a magic elevator button to the penthouse-level of pleasure. But to deny its very existence felt like a slap in the face, not only to sex educators everywhere, but to women and their partners who sing (or more likely scream) its praises. Cant we all just get it on get along? You say tomato, I say tom-ah-toe, you say “toe-curling orgasm,” I say “meh, I like it better in the butt.” There’s room for everyone to weigh-in on the G-spot issue.

We want to hear from you!

Roses are red, our logo is too, if you don’t like vibrators, do we still like you?

0

by thepleasurechest

Our Facebook and Twitter pages are all  a-buzz over the awesomeness of the free vibe we’re giving away for the next week and a half, and we’re feeling pretty damn excited about it ourselves.

This weekend I went to someone’s home to do a toy party, however, and something interesting was brought to my attention. I didn’t bring any dildos because the party host didn’t request them specifically, and one of the guests was pretty disappointed by this. She said she wasn’t crazy about vibrators, that they made her nose itch when she used them, and, I quote, “I don’t want to be thinking about my nose at a time like that.” After my initial LOL, we chatted about one vibe I had with me, the Slimline G, that I feel is awesome as a g-spot dildo when it’s not powered on because of its shape and hard plastic body. Of course, there are vibrators that are less strong than others, like your basic Mini Silver Bullet, or with a lower frequency (think “hum” as opposed to “buzz”), like the Clitoral Hummer, which in theory could ease the tickle factor, but since everyone’s body is different, we know not everyone is going to love vibration on their delicate bits.

That’s why I wanted to write a post today on a few of my favorite non-vibrating toys. We’d like to think our vast collection of goodies definitely has something for everyone, within the boundaries of the law, of course, but we always like to hear suggestions and comments from you.

  • Njoy Pure Wand The words “The Perfect G-spot Dildo” tend to fly out of our mouths when we talk about this toy. It is solid and heavy, and its weight lends well to hitting the spot just right. Pure Wand is made of stainless steel, which means its easy to clean and can be used vaginally or as an anal dildo (the curve is perfect for the prostate too!)
  • Pleasure Tape is perfect for bondage on the fly, as it’s portable and doesn’t stick to skin or hair. You can use it to easily and safely tie someone’s hands, feet, or as a gag or blindfold for an extra thrill without the commitment. And by “commitment” I mean having to rip off patches of your hair like when you use regular duct tape.
  • Sasi is a newer toy that does vibrate of you want it to, hence it is typically categorized with vibrators. But the unique thing about Sasi is that it has a mechanical rolling ball that moves under a thin membrane of silicone, brilliantly simulating oral sex – with or without vibration – and actually remembers over time which movements you like best! Yeah, we know, we should have had you sit down for that one.

The point is, we know whatever floats your boat will get you there, and we really like helping you get there, so never hesitate to ask questions or think it’s “weird” that you don’t like something some people seem to love. Oh, and to answer the question in the ultra-poetic title of this post, yes, we definitely like you! And also our logo isn’t always red… I call that poetic license.
