    Warming up with Madison Young

    0

    by thepleasurechest

    Those of us lucky enough to meet the kinky girl next door herself at Wednesday’s workshop in LA were treated to a wonderful surprise – blow-job warm-ups!

    Madison taught us, among other fabulous, kinky things, great techniques for warming your body (and face) up to give amazing head. We did shoulder rolls, taffy chews, darting tongue, motorboat, and yawning. It probably looked pretty weird, but everyone was doing it. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that some people *cough*me*cough* got home and put their skills to work, ending up with a totally-not-sore jaw and a totally happy partner.

    Try it for yourself this weekend, then on Monday when you’re sitting at your desk letting out a  big old yawn, just tell you’re boss you’re multi-tasking. Duh.

    by thepleasurechest

    Okay, not exactly, but sort of. You see, this month all three Pleasure Chest locations are sitting at the cool kids’ table with some of our favorite sex celebs and most popular workshops!

    Tomorrow night in Los Angeles, adult film and fetish star Madison Young makes her PC debut teaching Fellatio and Fetishism. We’re super-excited about this fresh take on one of our most popular workshop subjects. She’ll talk about how to incorporate latex, bondage, smoking blow jobs, deep throating, sensation play, toys, and anal play for a long, luxurious oral worshipping of the cock.

    On Monday, May 24th in Chicago, sex ed superstar Midori is teaching her workshop on how to please your man with blow-jobs and more,  Joy Stick Secrets, which has thrilled audiences in all three of our stores. She’ll be there most of the week, with How to Eat a Peach: Cunnilingus with Midori on Tuesday, and Rosy Cheeks: Spanking with Midori on Wednesday.

    And of course, the New York staff of Sex Specialists are known never to disappoint. They’ll be teaching everyone’s favorite penis-pleasing workshop Blow-jobs and Beyond on Tuesday, May 25th.

    Get there early! These FREE workshops are always in-demand and seating is limited.

    Attractive? Yes. Crowd-pleasing? Definitely. Popular? Always. But don’t call us The Plastics…. unless you mean silicone.

    All we are saying is give sex a hand

    1

    by thepleasurechest

    Hand sex, digital manipulation, finger banging… however you say it, it sounds less than sexy, but anyone who’s ever had sex with someone who was, let’s just say “less than proficient” with their fingers knows how truly important knowing how to use one’s hands can be. You could go to bed with someone incredibly hot, but if they play your pussy like a broken banjo or give a hand job that leaves a first degree burn, you probably won’t be inviting them for another round.

    No two people are the same, of course,and while some bodies might like circular movements and others might like to be strummed, still other folks will want both moves and then some. With your fingers, it’s easier to gauge your partner’s responses to different types of stimulation. What they don’t like, what they like, and what makes them lose it completely with pleasure may register on their face, but when you’re using your hands you’ll know what kind of touches and strokes brought them there, which can only improve your standard sex and oral sex skills as well. No complaints there, right?

    Tonight in Los Angeles, famed sex educator Reid Mihalko will teach us The Ins and Outs of Hand Sex. Check it out if you can, it’s FREE! And get here early, his classes fill up fast!

    A new pearly-white nail polish by a brand called BLEACHBLACK is cleverly named “Jizz.” Personally, I appreciate the explicitness level, as well as the room for jizz-on-your-hands comedy.

    Speaking of which, if you’re in LA, join us tonight for our Suck it, Lick it, Love it workshop from 8-10 pm. It’s totally free of cost, and our Sex Specialists will be serving up some sweet sex tips for better blow-jobs, hand-jobs, and cunnilingus.
