Ten Tips for Successful Valentine’s Shopping

0

by thepleasurechest

valentine shopping

Planning on shopping at a sex shop for V-day? Do yourself a favor with these tips:

1. Know what generally works for your partner/friend/date. We can’t help you find the perfect gift unless you can give us a clue. Bonus: ask them to go “window shopping” with you online or in person, and then you can surprise them with something that’s sure to please.

afterglow massage candle2. Plan to get a few things to make the gift an experience, rather than an item. A new vibe with a massage candle and some restraints = one hell of an amazing night.

3. Shop early, especially if you want to ask lots of questions. Our busiest days start the weekend before Valentines Day. Get in before that to have a relaxed shopping experience.

4. Get something for you to enjoy, too. Whether you have an intimate partner or not, everyone needs a little something special to treat themselves.

5. Have absolutely no idea what to get them? A gift card is perfect. Sex toys are not “one size fits all”, and a gift card can help make sure that they get what they really want.

6. Lube is a perfect addition to every toy purchase; even if you don’t usually use it, it can add a sexy bit of extra slippery fun! Throw in a toy cleaner for quick cleanup (which is especially helpful if your celebration include a hotel room…hint hint!).

7. If you buy a rechargeable toy, charge it up for the recommended amount of time before your sweetie opens the box, so you can enjoy it as soon as they like. If you buy a battery operated toy, pick up extra batteries and have them handy!

8. Indulge in a little something different – if you’re a whips-and-chains person, try an edible body oil, and vice versa. Sometimes the novelty can help us shake up the celebration and drive it to a whole new level.

9. Don’t forget – the packaging is just as important! Wrap up their gift in a sexy pair of undies, or a new jock strap, or the hankie color that they flag! Pop the cock ring over the neck of a bottle of champagne. Get creative and make the presentation part of the fun.

10. Buy three times the safer sex supplies than you think you need. Because nobody wants to be unprepared…especially with a three day weekend!

This excellent advice comes courtesy of our Chicago store manager, sex educator Sarah Sloane. You can read more from Sarah at her website

by thepleasurechest

[Galleries 12 not found]

Bookmark this blog post because you’re going to want to visit it every day. From December 1st through December 24th, we’re giving away a prize a day from our very own holiday advent calendar (above).

Each day shortly after noon PST, we’ll reveal a prize hidden behind the numbers above.

Around 3pm PST, we’ll give you the chance to win. Simply click on the little “i” in the right hand corner of the calendar to reveal the day’s trivia question. Be the first to answer the question correctly in the comments below and win that prize. So easy! We’ll be offering all kinds of goodies, including some of the coolest toys of the season.

Update: You can win a maximum of three times from the same IP address. 

Tips for Playing

Last year’s advent calendar was so popular that it became competitive very quickly. Here are a few tips to increase your chances of winning.

1) Do not play on a mobile phone. The advent calendar uses Flash, which may not work well with a mobile device.

2) Refresh your browser frequently. If you’re on our page before the prize is revealed, you’ll need to refresh it periodically, in order to see the updated page. Which brings us to…

3) Follow us on Twitter. When we reveal a prize, we immediately announce it on Twitter. Follow us on either our Los AngelesNew York or Chicago profiles. They’ll all announce at the same time!

4) Have Google handy! Most of our trivia questions can be answered by Googling or by looking for information on our website. (This one, right here!)

5) Don’t get discouraged. Seriously. You have 24 chances to win. Last year, there were a lot of winners.

Sorry, but we can only ship prizes within the United States.

Let’s Talk About Sex With Robots

by thepleasurechest

vr tenga

Adult toy designer Tenga has teamed up with the makers of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset to create the VR Tenga, which synchronizes the movement of a robot arm holding a Tenga masturbation device with visual stimulation from the headset. Essentially, you’re watching porn while a robot gives you a hand job, but the possibilities are exciting. If they continue to develop this technology, people with unrealizable fetishes could finally act on them. Enjoy sex with dragons, lamia, or the mythical creature of your choice!

If it’s having sex with a robot that appeals to you, we’re sorry to say that the VR Tenga is not yet widely available. On the bright side, you can always spray paint some boxes silver, dress your partner as a robot, get your own Tenga cup, and go to it!


Watch this video to see the VR Tenga in action.
