Would You Use Marijuana Lube?

1

by Kate M.

foria

Because it exists now.

Foria is a lube made with cannabis and coconut oils, specifically designed to be used and absorbed vaginally. (An anal lube is in the works.) While Foria will only get you high-high if you ingest it – and you can – it should have some effect on anyone who uses it. Folks who have tested the product so far have reported a variety of results, including warming and tingling sensations, greater sensitivity, and feeling engorged. Sounds pretty good to us.

Currently, Foria is available in California to folks with a physician’s recommendation. But how about the future? If we could carry it, would you be excited to try it?

Resolved to Do Your Kegels This Year?

1

by thepleasurechest

ami

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!

Curious About the Clitoris?

by thepleasurechest

Want to know more about your or your partner’s clitoris? Or do you just like winning arguments? (We do.) Either way, Em and Lo, authors of Sex: How to do Everything, have the facts. Did you know that the clitoris is the only organ that exists only for sexual pleasure? (We’re not sure which argument we’re going to win with that one, but we’re glad we know it.)

You can check out Em and Lo’s collection of clitoris facts here, and commence gloating over your new knowledge. If you want to get really fancy, use it as a jumping-off point to do some research of your own. For instance, some people would be willing to have a lively debate about whether 4,000 is an accurate estimate of the number of nerve endings in the penis (as opposed to 8,000 in the clit). There’s also a lot to know about Marie Bonaparte, who gets a mention for having some pretty extreme clitoris-altering  surgery. Not only was she willing to go to great lengths in pursuit of climax during intercourse, but she was also a psychoanalyst and a sexual researcher in her own right.

There are a lot of facts about the clitoris out there. Start with these five.

What’s Your Greatest Strength? Tell Us and Win an Aneros Evi (Updated 8/16)

by thepleasurechest

evi

Update: Congratulations to Secretly Sensuous, who was randomly chosen to win the Aneros Evi. Thanks to everyone who shared your greatest strengths with us. You can check out all of the entries below. 

Want to get strong while getting off? You can.

The Aneros Evi is designed for instant gratification. Just wear the Evi while you do your Kegel exercises, positioned so that the outer arm is poised to hit your clitoris. As you tense and release, the Evi rocks up and down, so that the inner bulb pushes against the G-spot, and the outer arm rubs the clit. The stronger you get, the harder you can go!

That’s not all you can do with the Evi. Try turning it upside down for a fuller feeling during oral, or wearing it underneath a harness for more sensation while you strap on. You could even hold your favorite vibe against it. Evi’s smooth silicone body transmits vibration beautifully.

How to win an Aneros Evi

Excited about the Evi?

Just leave a comment below telling us about your greatest strength. Are you the best kisser in your county? Can you win any argument without making your opponent feel bad? Do you bake the best lemon cake your friends have ever tasted? (Please send us the recipe.) If so, we want to know.

One winner will be selected at random, at 10am PST on Friday, 8/16. Be sure to leave an email address, so that we can contact you if you win.

U.S. Residents only.

Should You Go Bare Down There?

by thepleasurechest

shave

Whether by shaving, waxing, plucking or electrolysis, Americans have become increasingly obsessed with taming and  eliminating pesky pubic hair. The era of the 70s porn bush is long gone, replaced by the fashionable Brazilian and “boyzilian” wax. While shaved and waxed naughty bits can certainly be sexy, few of us consider the evolutionary advantage to having all that unsightly hair. By going bare, we may be increasing our risk of transmitting STIs, injuring our most sensitive parts, and sending confusing messages to young people. Alternet’s April Costa looks at the downside our current “battle against pubes.”  Check it out!

Meet Tatyana, the Woman With the World’s Strongest Vagina

by thepleasurechest

tatyana

This is Tatyana Kozhevnikovam. She is a Russian gymnast. Tatyana holds the Guinness World Record for “vagina weightlifting.” According to Cosmo, she “can lift a 30 pound kettlebell” with her genitals. Clearly, Tatyana has been doing her Kegels! Tatyana has a remarkable website promising to teach you the art of “Intimate Gymnastics.”

Here is an amazing video of Tatyana demonstrating the powers of her unusually strong vagina. Her site also has a section of “Erotica” videos, should you want to want to get a closer look at her technique. Pretty damned impressive, but we don’t recommend you try this at home. If you want to tone and strengthen your vaginal muscles, a good set of Kegel balls will do the job.

If I Had a Hammer…

by thepleasurechest

How strong are your kegels? Kristen of the Toymaker Project has modified a Feeldoe to create “The Hammer,” a light up dildo that measures the strength of your vaginal or anal muscles. It’s pretty cool.

The Hammer totally reminds us of one of those old “test your strength” penny arcade games. It looks like a neat way to build your kegels and measure your progress. Until the Hammer becomes available for your toolbox, check out the toys we sell for building kegel strength and prostate health.

Thanks to Manny for the tip!

Many of you are already familiar with the joys and benefits of Kegel exercises. Fifty Shades of Grey has made them even more popular, boosting sales of Kegel balls in all of our stores.

Kegel balls can be worn discreetly throughout the day, or for a quick workout. With repeated use, you can expect tighter muscles and stronger, more intense orgasms.

One of our favorite tools for curious Kegelers is the Ami from Je Joue. This elegant set contains three silicone balls of increasing size and weight for building up your strength over time. A staff member from our New York store experimented with all three, and declared the medium-sized #2 her “new best friend.” Je Joue’s site describes each ball in detail on their site.

In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, Je Joue is giving our readers a chance to win a special new pink Ami! It’s the one in the picture at the top of this post.
