This Week’s Best of the Chest

1

by thepleasurechest

Each day, we try to post amusing, informative and unusual links and articles covering the wide range of human sexuality. If you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, you’re probably already familiar with our daily feeding frenzy. For those who don’t, we decided it would be fun to post an end o’ the week review of the stuff that got our attention on the internet. This is the week’s best links from your friends at the Chest.

The Daily Show – Minneapolis Is the New Gay
Tags: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook

  • Speaking of San Francisco, The Daily Show this week asked “Is Minneapolis gayer than San Francisco?”

Who's your daddy?

  • “For some reason I thought there were other lesbians who felt that way and that was just a part of that community. Then I realized, that’s not what being a lesbian is — that’s what being transgender is.” - Chaz Bono, on the difference between gender and orientation and his path to becoming a man.

 

  • We’re not sure how we missed this, but last month some enterprising safe sex advocates staged a most unusual stunt at the Washington Monument. Keep America safe!

  • The Good Men Project asked the perennial question: Does Size Matter? We don’t know, but Lady Gaga’s giant penis stilettos are the only reason we’d ever tune in to watch American Idol. Too bad those heels at the Fox network censored them.

The boner machine?

 

  • Finally, though this happened 10 whole days ago, we can’t resist mentioning that one of our music heroes, Black Francis (yes, from Pixies!), randomly tweeted us to say “I just got turned on.” And we don’t think he’s talking about his guitar amp.

If you also get aroused by seeing sexy stuff in your daily feed, you can follow our LA, NY and Chicago stores on Twitter.

Bowling for Orgasms: A review of the Form 4

1

by thepleasurechest

This month, we’d like to welcome Jess our new Los Angeles store manager to The Pleasure Chest family. We’d also like to announce the release of the Form 4, the newest luxury vibe from Jimmyjane. We sent Jess and the Form 4 home together. Only one of them came back to work.

"It was all strikes, all of the time."

Upon first glance of the Form 4, I wasn’t quite sold. My previous experience with the Form 2 left me numb, even on the lowest speed, and despite the sleek design I couldn’t see the Form 4 as anything but a miniature bowling pin. However, once I brought it into the bedroom, I’ll have you know there was nothing gutter ball or 7-10 split about it. It was all strikes, all of the time!

The head of the Form 4 is where the ultra powerful motor is located, so unlike other super strong vibrators, this one will not make your hand go numb (anyone looking for a little “stranger” action afterward is out of luck). It also has a slight bit of bend in the neck, which means it contours to your body wonderfully. In addition to all of this, it gives a great “full” sensation when inserted and the slight taper of the neck to the body of the toy feels incredible at the vaginal opening with some gentle (or not so gentle) thrusting action.

I feel like the range of speeds on the Form 4 is more broad than on previous Form models, which is great news for the very sensitive, the “Hitachi lover,” and everyone in between. It’s rechargeable, waterproof, made of a high grade silicone, has a three year warranty, and it makes me and my partner come every time? I couldn’t recommend this toy any more highly. It’s like it was sent straight from Heaven!

On a side note, the Form 4 is outstanding even when off and has replaced a bevy of “can’t live without” dildos in my house. If only it was harness ready… Oh! It’s also great for full body massage! Bravo, Form 4!

The winners of our Mother’s Day Giveaway

0

by thepleasurechest

This week’s contest to win a Jimmyjane Form 4 for Mother’s Day was difficult for us to judge. There were only a dozen entries, but they were each so heartfelt and candid, it felt a bit odd choosing whose mom was most deserving. So, we decided that everyone was a winner. Each of our entrants got a $10 credit to use in our online store.

After much thought, we did agree on a favorite entry. Patty W’s thoughtful tribute to her mother really touched us. Here’s what she had to say:

My mom made the biggest mistake of her life when she married my dad, but she’s always told me she’s never regretted it because it led to me. Considering my old man’s freak-outs and alcoholism, that’s really saying something. But there was no way she was going to see me raised badly, so she made sure we got out together and stayed together.

What my mom doesn’t talk about is the way she forewent relationships with men to focus on raising me. It’s not like she had a lot of time for love, anyway, since she was a single mother with less skills than she’d hoped to have. But more importantly, she saw the way her friends’ boyfriends and husbands treated their children from previous marriages, and she couldn’t stand the thought of choosing someone else over her daughter – or watching someone else mistreat me in the first place.

Now that I’m a woman, on my own after losing a long-term relationship that meant so much to me, I have started to appreciate the sacrifice of that part of her womanhood. It’s not that she wanted it to work out that way; it’s not that she hadn’t tried. But I’ve found myself wishing I could somehow repay all the nights she slept alone in the hopes of keeping me safe.

When I was in my 20s, she came to me to ask about condoms and although it was awkward, I jumped at the opportunity to keep her safe and help her seek the pleasure she’d been missing. All I really needed to know was that she had finally met someone she liked and she was going to be careful.

A couple years later, after getting home from a vacation, my boyfriend found part of a condom wrapper in our house. He was about to accuse me of something unsavory when I remembered that my mom had stayed over while we were gone. And I was too amused to be angry when she expressed embarrassment over the evidence she’d unwittingly left behind. My boyfriend wasn’t so amused, but I couldn’t begrudge the fact that she was an adult woman. (Besides, I knew she’d sterilized the area before and afterward.)

My mom is always bragging to anyone who will listen about me, but I brag to anyone who will listen about her. I’ve been agonizing over what to get her for Mother’s Day this year because I’d like to give her a gift she can use for years to come. It would be nice to give her something she can use to learn more about her own body, too, and I know the Form 4 will fit the bill. I love my Form 6 with all of my heart, so my needs are being met – but I think it’s high time my ma lived sexy. I hope you’ll agree with me!

We do agree! Your mom sounds like an amazing woman and we hope that she enjoys her new Form 4.

Thanks to Patty and to each of you who took the time to pay tribute to your mothers. We hope that Sunday is special for all of the moms out there.

The Form 4 is not your mother’s vibrator.But it could be!

13

by thepleasurechest

Introducing: the Form 4, the latest luxury vibe from the design wizards at Jimmyjane. The Form 4′s body-safe, premium silicone shaft is strong and firm, with the perfect amount of flex for G-Spot play. It’s totally waterproof, making it ideal for the bath, and has a travel lock for going on the road. Under the hood, it’s got a big, powerful motor which delivers four different modes of vibration at five levels of intensity. Best of all, the Form 4 comes with a wireless recharging base and a three year limited warranty. This is definitely not your mother’s vibrator.

But it could be…

In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re giving a Form 4 to one lucky mom.

How to enter

Post a comment on this blog, paying tribute to the mother in your life. She could be your mom, your partner, your spouse or a friend. She could be anyone you think deserves recognition on this upcoming Mother’s Day.

On Friday, at noon PST, we’ll award the Form 4 to our favorite entry. Beats sending flowers, doesn’t it?

Now, we hate to sound like Dr. Freud, but please, “Tell us all about your mother….”

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.

It’s been called “the Cadillac of vibrators.” It has won glowing endorsements from actress Eva Longoria and Oprah Magazine. It was made famous in a now legendary episode of Sex & The City.
