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.

Sex with the in-crowd

0

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!

WTF Nonsexual Product of the Day

0

by thepleasurechest

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.

Some of your favorite sexy stars come to The Pleasure Chest!

1

by thepleasurechest

Let’s get this out of the way: I love my job. I love that my work involves writing about sex, talking about sex, and helping people have better sex.

That being said, being an adult film star sounds awesome. The work is undoubtedly hard, but it also seems fun. The costumes, the toys, the naked people, the not being chained to a desk for hours… unless that’s what the scene calls for, of course.

The porn stars I’ve had the opportunity to meet while working at TPC range from simply delightful to nothing short of inspiring, and sometimes it’s hard not to get a little bit star-struck.  In fact, it took everything I had inside not to drop down on my knees shrieking “NOOOOOOOO!” the day a certain beautiful, talented, and famously filthy adult superstar came into the LA store and I was out of town.

The good news is, all will be redeemed this month with our March Porn Madness workshops and appearances at The Pleasure Chest Los Angeles.

On March 9th, we’re hosting a discussion panel “Sex Savvy: Smart Women in Porn“, featuring legendary adult film stars Candida Royalle, Nina Hartley, and Jane Hamilton (aka Veronica Hart), each of whom have now stepped behind the camera and/or become sexy, savvy business women. Joining them will be erotic performer, model, muse, staff favorite, and star of my screen saver April Flores. In the moderator’s chair, “the next generation of sex educator”, writer, and erotic film director Jamye Waxman will get the discussion on the sex industry going, as well as get the other ladies to reveal some of their hottest tales and tricks.

On March 11th, award-winning stars Jessica Drake and Kaylani Lei will join us for a meet and greet, signing merchandise and hanging out with fans. On the 24th, Jessica (who is also a writer/director, BTW) will be teaching a workshop on blow-jobs. That’s right, an AVN Award winner for “Best Oral Sex Scene” teaching us her best BJ tricks. This is too much excitement. Somebody get me to a fainting couch.

Check out the full list of March Porn Madness workshops (yes, there’s more!) after the cut.

Oh Good, It’s February!

0

by thepleasurechest

February is one of our favorite months here at The Pleasure Chest, for a lot of reasons. First of all, it’s Black History Month, and this year we’re all celebrating one of the most significant events in American history, the election of our first black president. Then there’s Superbowl Sunday, which is like Christmas for football lovers and people who really enjoy beer and snack foods. Last but not least, there’s Valentine’s Day on February 14th!

Depending on how you look at it, Valentine’s Day is either the most romantic holiday of all or a total steaming pile of BS. Personally, I think the part that’s BS is the idea that “romance” is the same for everyone (i.e. flowers, candy, and cards that play Celine Dion when you open them). You see, for some, spending the evening tied to their lover’s bed being flogged would be absolutely romantic, but listening to Celine Dion would be absolute torture. That’s why we carry everything to make Valentine’s Day extra-special for all kinds of folks, from couple’s vibrators and chocolate body paint to blindfolds and strap-on harnesses.

This month we have exciting free workshops in all three of our stores for everyone, whether you’re single, coupled, or looking to add an extra player to your  roster (football reference). Plus there will be a special treat I’ll announce later this week! Come on in and get February friskified with us, and don’t forget, you get 15% off on purchases the same night you attend a workshop! That’s definitely sweeter than a box of chocolates.

The Sexual Resolutions

0

by thepleasurechest

According to the US Government website, these are some of the most common New Year’s Resolutions:

  • Lose Weight/Get Fit
  • Save Money
  • Get a Better Education
  • Reduce Stress Overall/at Work
  • Take a Trip

I’m sure this list sounds familiar and somewhat tiresome, whether you’ve made them yourself or have a lot of resolution-inclined friends and family. Well, this year you can join me in your own version of my sexual resolutions, and feel free to declare them. At the dinner table. When company is over.

  • Get Fit Losing weight is fine and all, but studies show that if you just say “I will lose weight” without any fitness goals, you’re less likely to succeed. Instead of imposing size ideals on yourself, why not say “I will do 30 squats a night… on a penis or dildo”? Personally, I’m going to start each day at the office with 3 reps of 25 PC muscle exercises, which are  beneficial for all genders and fitness levels.
  • Save Money This is definitely one of my personal goals for the year, but one of my favorite parts about sex is that it’s free (usually) and enhancing one’s sex life doesn’t have to be expensive. One of my favorite toys I purchased this year is Pandora by Vibratex. It has vibration speeds and patterns to suit almost anyone and can be used as a g-spot toy, p-spot toy, an anal toy great for beginners, and worn anally during sex. Even better, since it’s silicone, it can be safely used vaginally, anally, and shared when properly cleaned.
  • Get a Better Education This one’s easy-peasy. Well, if “peasy” were a word, which it isn’t (see, learning already). At The Pleasure Chest, we have tons of how-to books and DVDs, and a ridiculously knowledgeable staff. We’re also having workshops all winter long, and most of them are free. I’ll be challenging myself to think outside, well, my own box by attending the Blow-job Mini Workshop with Midori here in Los Angeles on January 11th from 7-8 pm.
  • Reduce Stress Overall/at Work Stress sucks. It’s sneaky and quiet, then suddenly unbearable. I find that deep breathing, regular exercise, light massage, and hardcore fucking do the trick. What? It’s true. But seriously, it’s important to mind your stress level, because it’s pretty much impossible to have good sex when you’re all wound up about bills or how the hell the kids on “The Hills” have their own show and you don’t. Breathing seems oh-so-basic, but it’s surprising how calming and refreshing true deep breaths can be. For me, regular exercise means a brisk walk, but you can go to your fancy gym if you must, and nothing beats a sensual massage to relax and get in the mood. As for reducing stress at work, I have 4 words for you: extended wear butt plug.
  • Take a Trip Yes! Let’s all go have sex in exotic locales! Okay, so I really want to do it in St. Barts, but what we can afford is Las Vegas. It’s cool though, because I love Vegas, and en route car sex is way hotter and slightly less uncomfortable than airplane bathroom sex. So I hear. The point is, whether it’s Cancun or your coffee table, sexual adventure is totally attainable in 2010.

Well, that’s all from me this year. Everyone here at the Chest is looking forward to next year and all the excitement, sexual and otherwise, it will surely bring. Happy New Year to you and yours!
