Last week’s contest to win a Vibratex Rabbit Pearl E vibrator had our comment thread overflowing with cuteness! We asked for your cutest and funniest bunny pics and videos, and you delivered. In fact, there were so many adorable submissions that we gave Pleasure Chest gift cards to the two runner-up favorites. Here they are:

The winner!

The winning bunny from Kelsey in Canada.

Runner up winner!

Steve from New Jersey says: "My girlfriend would love me forever if I won this for her, and it would make her month long school trip overseas much easier. I decided to be creative and draw a rabbit myself!! No carrots were harmed in the making of this image!"

Runner up winner!

Jessica from West Hollywood says "Wow, this was nerdy, even for me."

Here were some of the many entries that also made us squee.

Maddi's bunny tried kissing up to the judges! It almost worked!

 

We were so sorry to disappoint Zoe's bunnies.

 

Sabrina writes, "This is my pet bunny “Payne." He’s eagerly awaiting the news to find out if he won!"

 

JR's submission is so wrong. But we love it.

L’Intimate. A stashcan for your vibrator!

1

by thepleasurechest

A few months ago, in our Turn On or Buzz Off poll, we asked if you’d buy L’Intimate, a sticky solution to a sticky problem– hiding your sex toys from prying eyes. You couldn’t hide your enthusiasm, so now we’re carrying L’Intimate. I took it home for a spin. Here’s the dirt.

I have to admit that the concept of a lint roller disguising a vibrator was not initially appealing to me. Partially, this is because I’m an exhibitionist. Come to my house, and you’re likely to see the coffee table and nightstands littered with masturbation sleeves, prostate stimulators and bottles of lube. I also keep the latest issues of Harper’s and The Economist lying around just to class up the joint.

My other concern is a sanitary one. I associate lint rollers with dirt, grime, and (most of all) pet hair. My cat is a furball factory, and I generally like to keep his shedding away from my sticky sex toys.

“I would never suspect that there was a vibrator in here.”

All that being said, L’Intimate is kind of a neat product. The lint roller itself works well. My girlfriend tested it on her coat, after a long weekend trip. It collected all of the lint with a few rolls. I asked her if she could hear or feel the hidden vibrator rattling around inside the secret compartment, and she said “I would never suspect that there was a vibrator in here.” So, if you’re a private person, or (more likely) want the thrill of watching your guests using your vibrator’s carrying case to clean their coats, L’Intimate will do the trick.

The included vibrator from Doc Johnson might not, however. We tried it out, and it’s a standard plastic slimline vibe. On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the Hitachi Magic Wand), my girlfriend rated the vibe a 1.5. Since the Hitachi still hasn’t fried her circuit board, she said this might be enough to get her off. But if you’re the kind of person who likes stronger vibration, the toy that comes with L’Intimate might not satisfy. Luckily, the compartment will accommodate most slimline vibes, so if you find one that works for you, L’Intimate could make a handy hiding place.

Even if you don’t use if for sex toys, you’ve got a functional lint roller for hiding contraband. Admit it: cops and parents can spot your phony Coca-Cola stashcan from a mile away. L’Intimate will roll way under the radar of nosy narcs.

Sweet little lies. The winners of our Yooo Contest!

0

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we introduced you to the Fun Factory Yooo. This quirky-looking, high tech toy has three balls containing two separate vibes all covered in a brightly-colored silicone skin with a satin finish. In our contest, we asked you to explain the purpose of the Yooo, if you were being interrogated by a nosy neighbor or a tough-as-nails TSA agent. We got a lot of creative and funny entries. You’re all great liars! We took a vote here at TPC headquarters and we’ve picked a winner…

Congratulations to Margie from Illinois for this entry:

It’s my new alarm clock. It has 2 alarms built in and when it’s set you place it under your pillow and it vibrates to wake you up. There’s a soft, and strong setting, so when you need to get up early you can use this , so everyone else can stay sleeping.

Sounds completely plausible to us, Margie! Rise and shine, because a brand new Yooo is just around the corner!

Our runner up winner is D. from California with this submission:

It’s a molecular model for hydrogen dioxide. One hydrogen atom and two oxygen atoms form a covalent bond, sharing electrons which vibrate to keep the molecule together.

Verrry clever, D. We can imagine a whole new line of vibrators designed for science geeks! You’ll be getting our $20 gift card.

If you didn’t win, don’t despair. You’re all talented liars, as far as we’re concerned. And another Fun Factory giveaway is coming up soon!

Yooo, Who? What is that thing & how can I win one?

Fun Factory Yooo

The geniuses at German adult toy company Fun Factory consistently live up to their name. Fun Factory toys combine the best materials and powerful functions, with a sometimes whimsical, sometimes WTF design sensibility. We imagine that their headquarters must look like the Willy Wonka factory of sex gadgets. If there’s a vibrating equivalent of an Everlasting Gobstopper hidden in their warehouse, we want it!

Meet their latest creation: the Yooo (pronounced like “you!”) Consisting of three balls, two powerful motors, 8 vibration levels, 3 pulse patterns and a body safe silicone skin, the Yooo, is one of the most versatile gadgets we’ve ever seen. And, you’re in luck, because the fine folks at Fun Factory are letting us give one away!

The contest

We like the funny shape of the Yooo, and we think it’s one of the stealthiest sex toys ever made. So, here’s the contest. Pretend your new Yooo has just been discovered by a nosy neighbor, a prying parent or a tough TSA employee. Imagine (if you can) that you’re not a shameless exhibitionist and actually want to keep the Yooo’s true purpose a secret.

What will you call this device? And what will you say it is for?

How to enter

Submit your entry, naming and explaining this imaginary product in the comment field of this blogpost. You don’t need to use your real name, but be sure to supply a valid email address so we can contact you. Only one entry per person, please!

On Monday, March 14th at 10AM PST, we’ll pick the most creative answer! Our runner up entry will win a $20 gift card to The Pleasure Chest!

It’s that simple. So, tell us again. What is that thing I found in your purse? And what is it for?

Good luck!

My Alien Friend: The Man Eater Reviewed

1

by thepleasurechest

"Take me to your wiener!"

A few months ago, we ran a poll on this blog, asking if you’d let the Man Eater near your pole. This one-eyed, green space monster with a taste for human cock went down in defeat. But I remained curious. So, I asked for a specimen and abducted the Man Eater to run some tests back at my own private Area 51. Would I make a new friend like Elliot in E.T.? Or would this become an alien autopsy? Here’s what I discovered.

The Man Eater is actually pretty cool! He looks and feels like one of those collectible toys you see prominently displayed in the home of a comic book nerd or sci-fi fan. This is also part of his appeal. Assuming you keep him clean and wipe the come off his mouth, this little alien should fly under the radar of most of the terrestrial visitors to your house. He simply doesn’t look like a sex toy. The downside, of course, is that people, especially curious kids, might think he looks cool and want to pick him up and play with him. Keep the Man Eater on a high shelf if you know what’s good for you!

Just like Tickle Me Elmo, the Man Eater vibrates when you push his belly. And while the low setting is pretty worthless, the middle and top speeds are pretty damned strong. Vibration is a relatively new experience for me. Most vibrators are made and designed for women. There are exceptions– many vibes can be used anally or against the perineum for prostate stimulation– but, except for the Fun Factory Cobra Libre, there just aren’t that many vibrating toys made exclusively for male masturbation. So, at first, I just held the Man Eater’s open mouth against the underside of my cock, making sure to hit the glans. With a generous dab of lube, the area got even more sensitive, and the sensation became very pleasurable. Rather than feeling numb, all the little nerve endings felt awake and ready to party.

Even though it felt good to have the Man Eater humming against the underside of my penis, I didn’t feel like I would ever come from vibration alone. That’s when I decided to tilt my cock upwards against my belly and actually stroke the underside of my shaft with his open mouth. I’m sure I looked ridiculous, with my hand cupping the back of the Man Eater’s head, as he bobbed up and down along my penis. But I didn’t care, because the Man Eater was really working for me! The contour of his “mouth” felt really nice, in combination with the vibration. The hardness of the ABS plastic and PVC material actually helped create enough pressure to bring me to an unidentified flying orgasm!

That material also makes the Man Eater waterproof and easy to clean. After he made sweet love to me, I brought my new friend into the shower and cleaned him off with some soap and hot water. He dried on the shower caddy overnight, and was ready to be put in a safe hiding place the next morning.

While the Man Eater isn’t likely to take over the planet just yet, he’s a surprisingly effective toy given his humble asking price. He runs off of two AA batteries, cleans up well for company and feeds exclusively on your penis. I think I’ll keep him.

Get Out of the Toolbox & Into the Toybox

1

by thepleasurechest

A story in Salon over the weekend, confirms what we at the Pleasure Chest have known for awhile now– men buy vibrators! The article focuses exclusively on men purchasing toys to use with a female partner, ignoring that couples of all genders and orientations use vibrators to enhance their sex lives. Here’s the gist of it:

It’s only recently that sex toys became an accepted symbol of a man’s sexual prowess. Once upon a time, vibrators were seen as posing a threat to masculinity — something that might outperform, maybe even replace, men in the bedroom. But now they’re seen as a useful item in a guy’s toolbox, and many see them as no more emasculating than a power drill. It’s not like 20-somethings are carrying around pocket vibes like condoms, but men are increasingly open to sharing the bed with them.

We agree! But while the article makes some good points, it also reinforces male fixations about sexual performance, and ignores an even more growing trend– dudes are buying vibrators to get themselves off.

Penis Vibrators

In addition to masturbation sleeves like those made by Tenga and Fleshlight, there’s a new breed of vibes vying to grab a piece of the male market. A few months ago we told you about the Cobra Libre, a vibrating masturbation toy that looks like a race car or an old school electric shaver.

Fun Factory Cobra Libre

The Cobra Libre is waterproof, rechargeable and made of soft, body-safe silicone. The inside of the sleeve is designed with all the right contours, and the motor has three speeds, and multiple pulsation patterns. This is a long way from masturbating with a tube sock!

A cheaper and goofier alternative to the Cobra Libre is the Maneater, a vibrating masturbation toy, designed to look like a one-eyed green alien. Unlike the Cobra Libre, you don’t actually insert your penis in the toy. Instead, you use the curved surface of the open “mouth” to rub your cock while the three speeds of vibration add to the stimulation.

Cheeky Boy

Vibrating Anal Toys

Just as boys are discovering the joys of vibration, they’re also learning to love their butts. Anal toys are more popular than ever, and many of the latest add vibration to the mix. As straight guys begin to realize that putting things in your butt doesn’t make you gay, toy companies are beginning to tap that, uh, untapped market. The Cheeky Boy is one of many anal toys that offer P-spot (prostate) stimulation with a little extra buzz. The anal “beads” make a curved line directly for the prostate, while the outer part of the toy presses against the perineum. Once the bullet vibe is switched on, the user can enjoy “rocking” the Cheeky Boy for an explosive orgasm, that no simple handjob could create.

Vibrators for Couples

If he has someone to play with, there are a number of vibrating toys, designed to get him off while offering stimulation to his partner. The most common is the vibrating cockring. Tantus makes one of the best vibrating cockrings around. The high quality silicone conducts vibrations throughout the whole ring, not just at the site of the vibe. The vibrator can be turned upward to offer clitoral stimulation during intercourse, or downward to stimulate the balls and shaft during masturbation.

We Vibe

The latest innovation in vibrators for partner sex is the We Vibe. Specifically made to be worn by a woman during intercourse, the We Vibe’s unique design actually has lots of applications for people of all bodies and genders. When used vaginally, the We Vibe offers separate vibration to both the clitoris and the G-spot while leaving room for penetration. It’s  a rechargeable, silicone vibrator that enhances pleasure for both partners, without getting in the way of intercourse.

It Shouldn’t Feel Like Work!

As you can probably see, we think that Salon‘s “toolbox” analogy is too work-oriented. Men shouldn’t think of vibrators as tools to fix their sex lives nor should they think of themselves as handymen in the bedroom (unless they enjoy that kind of roleplay.)

We prefer the toybox idea, because of its focus on the mutual expressions of imagination, creativity and pleasure. As men become less fixated on performance and more focused on enjoyment, we expect to see even more toys designed for boys and their bits.
