Update: Congratulations to Lee, who won the Amorino! Congratulations also to Amber and to BlackRa Ven (on Facebook) who will also receive some free goodies for being such awesome runners-up! Thanks to everyone who entered. You really made our Valentine’s Day. 

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re giving away a Fun Factory Amorino!

Shaped like Cupid’s bow, with a subtle heart and arrow design along its side, the Amorino is fluent in the language of love. Its satiny silicone body is ideal for resting against the clit while you rock it against the G-spot, or for external stimulation during prostate play. Want more? The detachable silicone band wraps around the toy, transmitting vibration around the entire vulva, and can be twisted into different shapes for a variety of amazing sensations.

Want to win an Amorino? Here’s how.

In the comments below, write a love poem – to Fun Factory, to us, or to the Amorino itself. Be as serious or as silly as you want. Your poem can be a rhyming couplet, a limerick, a haiku, an experiment in the use of emoticons in free verse, or anything else you’d like it to be. It can even begin, “Roses are red, violets are blue.”

We’ll pick a favorite on February 14th at noon, PST.

U.S. residents only. 

Update: This contest is running simultaneously on Facebook. It is also possible to enter via our Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York pages.

Update: Congratulations to Kelly (“If I were an enzyme I’d be a DNA helicase so I could unzip your genes.”) and RosieB (“Last night I had a dream about my vagina and you were in it.”), who each win a Je Joue Mio! Thanks to everyone who entered!

We’re giving away a Je Joue Mio to two lucky winners this week!

The Mio is everything you want from a cock ring. Its stretchy silicone covers a super-strong rechargeable motor that lets you choose from a variety of speeds and patterns. The Mio makes the wearer feel bigger and harder and lets the receiver feel the vibration. You can even put it around the base of your favorite dildo, making it fabulous for both solo and strap-on play. Oh, and it’s completely waterproof.

Want to win a Je Joue Mio? Here’s how.

In the comments below, tell us the funniest pick-up line you can think of. Creativity is encouraged! On Friday, January 31st, noon PST, we’ll pick our two favorites.

Resolved to Do Your Kegels This Year?

We keep hearing from folks whose new year’s resolutions include doing their Kegel exercises. Kegels work out the PC muscle, which runs from the pubic bone to the tailbone and is intimately connected with orgasm. A stronger PC muscle means stronger orgasms, awesome muscle control (tightening or relaxing the vagina), better bladder control, and an easier time during childbirth.

Let’s backtrack for a moment: stronger orgasms. Dayenu.

If you’re one of the many folks who has resolved to stick to a vaginal workout routine this year, we’d like to direct you to the Pussy Fitness article from our how-to blog, for some helpful tips. Good luck!

Dildo Misadventures

We’ve already raved about Oh Joy Sex Toy, Erika Moen’s sex toy review comic, and we particularly enjoyed the latest installment: Amanda Lafrenais’s lessons in dealing with dildos. Lafrenais shares her own mortifying sex toy stories, each with a moral. We learned, for example, one reason why it’s important to take the batteries out of a toy before you throw it away.

Sex Doll in Space: The Incredible Journey

blow up doll in space

We get a lot of customer requests for blow-up dolls, mostly for gag gifts and bachelor/ette parties. Some folks want a doll that’s as realistic as possible. Some want one that’s as cartoonish as possible. Some want dolls that are shaped like farm animals. No one has yet asked us for a doll that doubles as an astronaut.

Enter Missy, the blow-up doll who was recently sent into space. And why not?

We highly, highly recommend watching her daring voyage.

A Vintage Vibe, Reviewed

vintage vibrator

As much as we might like the idea of a retro-looking baby blue toy, the idea of actually using an actual vintage vibrator is a little scary. Still, we were pretty excited to see that one brave toy reviewer decided to take this – ahem – scalp massager from the 1950s for a test drive.

“The Handy Hannah sits on the back of your hand and stays on via six springy metal straps. I found that my hand became red and chapped-looking with only a few minutes of use, and can’t imagine how uncomfortable I would feel after longer periods of use (or, say, while wearing the Vitalator to give head massages). Luckily, it’s powerful enough that longer periods aren’t necessary, even for the orgasmically challenged.”

Detecting Toxic Toys

Yesterday, Bitch Media ran a piece about the lack of government regulation in the sex toy industry and how this leads to the sale of sex toys made with potentially toxic chemicals. Unfortunately, this is a real problem – one that’s old news for us. Sex toys are not regulated by the FDA, and many of them are made with phthalates: plastic-softening chemicals that have been linked to all kinds of icky health problems.

Luckily, there are ways to avoid toys with phthalates. The article mentions using a flame test – lighting a match and holding it against your toy – to determine whether a toy is 100% silicone or not. Silicone toys are non-porous, hypoallergenic, and phthalate free, which makes them totally awesome, and most silicones won’t melt when you hold a match up to them. Still, this isn’t the best solution, since a) not all phthalate free toys are silicone and b) you’d probably rather find out whether your toy is safe *before* you buy it, take it home, and set it on fire.

Instead, here are a few of our tips for buying a body-safe toy.

1) Read up on materials before you buy. This is a good place to start, but it isn’t foolproof, since manufacturers aren’t required to list exactly what’s in each toy. (So, you could buy a toy that’s labeled “silicone” and which is, in fact, only 10% silicone and 90% pure evil.)

2) Do a smell test. The best way to tell if a toy has harmful chemicals is to sniff it. Toys with phthalates will smell kind of cough syrupy, like your plastic toys used to when you were a kid. (Phthalates are now illegal to use in children’s toys, which tells you something.) Even a faint, baby powdery smell tells you that there’s something to be wary of. The most body-friendly toys won’t smell like anything.

3) Ask one of us! The Pleasure Chest staff are a bunch of toy safety nerds, and we can point you toward several brands who make durable, totally safe, high quality products.
