Turn On or Buzz Off? Bzzzbuddies

1

by thepleasurechest

One of the best parts of working at The Pleasure Chest is the opportunity to experience the great wide, weird world of human sexuality. The sex toy industry is exploding, and it seems like there are hundreds of new products each year, many of them seeking to serve customers whose tastes run far outside of the mainstream.

We can’t resist sharing some of these toys with you, and we want to know if you’d consider buying them. So today we introduce a new feature on the blog: Turn On or Buzz Off? The idea is simple. We highlight an unusual product, and you tell us what you think.

Today’s toy for consideration is the line of Bzzzbuddies. Meet Pandy, Shivers, Frisky & Paws, the adorable critters from this kawaii menagerie of “personal massagers” (vibrators). The Bzzzbuddies are waterproof, phthalate-free, plastic vibes, with four interchangeable tips. Each Bzzzbuddy has its own “story,” which is included on the back of the box. Here’s the 411 on Frisky, the pink pussycat of the Bzzzbuddy line:

Frisky is a curious little kitty cat. Everything in the world seems so new and exciting to her! Every day Frisky spends her time exploring and finding new things to pique her curiosity. Whether it’s something to play with or a new place to hide, Frisky loves to explore and experience her life to the fullest. It’s a wonderful time for Frisky because she knows that some day, she will be held, loved, and played with all day long.

Cute, right? It sounds like the blurb on the back of a children’s book! The Bzzzbuddies remind us of the popular Hello Kitty vibrator, but their marketing also seems like a good fit for those with age-play fantasies. In fact, they’d probably make a great gift for the babyfur on your Christmas list.

So now, we put it to you dear reader? What do you think of the Bzzzbuddies? Turn on? Or Buzz Off? Take our poll!

“The best little vibrator I’ve ever had.”

2

by thepleasurechest

Mary from our LA store took home the Jimmyjane Form 2. She’s been abuzz about it ever since…

The Form 2 is the best little vibrator I’ve ever had. Despite its size, the vibration is surprisingly strong when you turn it up. The intensity of the sensation seems to come from the vibrations in each ear bouncing off of each other. I’ve never been much for pulsations but when the separate motors in the ears get going on the stuttering mode it feels so good, it’s almost overwhelming.

"When the separate motors in the ears get going on the stuttering mode it feels so good, it’s almost overwhelming."

The vibration on the highest setting is comparable to the Hitachi Magic Wand but without that vibe’s noise, size and cord tethering you to the wall. It’s super quiet and small and holds its charge for a very long time. I really couldn’t recommend it more. I’ve gotten really into using it in combination with my other favorite toy– the Pure Wand from Njoy – the best G-spotter of all time.

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.

How to buzz together in the bedroom (or somewhere else way more scandalous, if you want)

1

by thepleasurechest

Using a vibrator with your partner for the first time can be intimidating, that’s for sure, but building that kind of intimacy is totally rewarding, and the reward can be  not only more orgasms, but also a sense of fun and openness to please one another sexually. There are all kinds of vibes that are especially great to use with a partner, whether they’re designed in a way that makes them physically accommodating during intercourse or made specifically to offer stimulation to both partners.

Here are some common questions and concerns that may come up when you’re looking to add a buzz to the bedroom:

  • What will my partner think of me if I grab desperately under my bed for my Hitachi Magic Wand 20 minutes into a vigorous round of thrusting? We’re not gonna lie, this could  startle  your lover, partly because they might think you’re about to attack them with a baseball bat, but mostly because the best time to talk about sex toys is generally before you start having sex. A surprising number of people are unfamiliar with the idea of using vibrators during partner sex, and also with the fact that most female bodies do need some form of clitoral vibration to orgasm. Well before the deed begins, it helps to sit your partner down and let them in on this information, along with some personal encouragement and motivation like “I love how you fuck me and I want to come extra hard for you” or “Later, I can show you how good this feels on your balls while I suck you off.” After all, even the most secure among us hate to feel left out of the action!
  • Speaking of vibrators the size of sports equipment, are there any vibes you might recommend for couples just starting out with toys or that are specifically designed for partner use? We happen to know plenty of couples who use and really enjoy the strongest, loudest, most unwieldy vibes around, but we do have recommendations for those just starting out, and there are more and more vibes being made that are designed specifically for partner sex. In general, you’re probably going to want something that’s on the quiet side and fits nicely between two bodies, like Jimmyjane’s Little Chroma. Vibrating cock rings, like the Vibratex Duet are very popular with couples because they provide hands-free stimulation to one partner’s clit or perineum while trapping blood in the penis of the wearer for an erection that can be harder and stronger. We-Vibe has created a revolutionary dual-stimulation vibrator that can actually be worn during sex! One end of the totally waterproof, rechargeable silicone vibe hugs the clit while the other goes inside the vagina, resting on the g-spot and allowing enough room for a partner to penetrate and feel the vibrations at the same time!
  • This is all so new and overwhelming, it makes me want to lie down… and try it! Any tips and tricks? For some folks, the ultimate foreplay is the element of surprise and/or control. Those types tend to enjoy vibrating panties or other wearable remote control vibes. One partner wears a tiny vibrator tucked between the labia or under the balls while the other controls the vibrations from afar. A finger vibe (or vibrating cock ring) fits around fingers without too much bulk or fuss and makes for a great reach-around during doggie style sex. Vibrating cock rings worn around a penis or dildo offer the most clit stimulation in the “cowgirl” position. It’s like turning your partner into a giant rabbit vibe with hands (don’t tell them that though)! We love the Laya Spot by Fun Factory because it’s quiet, splash proof, and its ergonomic shape feels wonderful in the hand and on the clit. You can also use it to cup his balls during a blow-job for extra stimulation and many thanks.
  • So that’s what they mean by “sharing is caring”… Wait! You may have learned in kindergarten that sharing your toys is always the polite thing to do, but with adult toys there are a few important guidelines. Rule number one is never, ever use a toy in the butt then use it in or around the vagina unless it has a fresh condom on or is a non-porous toy that has been properly cleaned. Non-porous toys are those made of silicone, non-porous hard plastic, metal, or glass. They are safe to share with a condom or after having been properly cleaned. On the other hand, a porous toy (made from several materials, the most popular being porous hard plastic, elastomer, vinyl, jelly rubber, and cyberskin) should never be used anally without a condom unless it is to remain an anal toy for the rest of its days. Sexual partners who are STI tested and fluid bonded may share porous toys, but we still recommend condom use in the case of jelly rubber and cyberskin due to high porosity and potentially harmful plastic softeners.
