MichaelsJohnsonTantraPMIntroduction to Tantra with Patricia Johnson and Mark Michaels
Wednesday, October 23rd @ 8-10pm FREE!

Tantra uses sexual energy for consciousness expansion. In other words you can think whatever thoughts, use whatever implements, and be with whomever you wish, as long as that gets you into a highly charged erotic state. This is where the magic can begin to happen. Join Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, authors of “Great Sex Made Simple,” for an honest discussion in which they will dispel some of the popular myths surrounding this ancient tradition. You will learn that elements of Tantric philosophy and practice can be easily applied to our modern lives in ways that do more than simply improve our sexual experiences. This class is for all relationship styles, configurations and gender identities. Singles are welcome.

How to Flirt at a Pleasure Chest Workshop

0

by thepleasurechest

sexnerdsandra

Autostraddle recently featured a list of places where hookups might be found. One of the favorites? Sex ed workshops. We couldn’t agree more! To our delight (and relief) the article included some tips and caveats for approaching a cutie you meet at your local sex shop’s G-spotting class.

You could always feel free to share some of your experiences, listen in on others’ experiences or ask a group of people for a few extra tips. Opening yourself up to discussions might help you catch the attention of a woman who peaks your interests.

Remember that sex-ed spaces are often meant as fun, safe spaces where it’s okay to talk about sex freely, and that respecting and maintaining the value of that safe space may mean being discreet about your attraction. Also, be cautious with asking too many personal questions about someone’s sexuality and sex life, unless she brings it up first.

If the worst case scenario is that you pick up some new skills for when you do have someone to use them on, we still call that a win. You can find our upcoming workshops here.

The Autostraddle article is aimed at queer women, but a lot of the tips can be adapted to suit anyone. Read it here.

Threesomes for Everyone!

by thepleasurechest

reid-mihalko

We’re excited to see that a workshop at our Los Angeles store, Negotiating Successful and Sexy Threesomes with Reid Mihalko (above), was written up in British GQ. Sex columnist Anka Radakovich attended the workshop, and she gives an entertaining account of the evening.

As the room filled up with threesome seekers, I wondered what the teacher’s credentials for teaching the class might be. It turned out our teacher, Reid Mihalko, had the perfect CV: “I have had more than 300 threesomes,” he tells the class. “I just had one today!”

Radakovich recaps some of the class’s highlights, including tips on where to meet partners, suggested sexual positions for three, and some characteristically colorful advice from Milhalko. “Watching porn to learn about how to have a threesome is like learning how to drive by watching The Fast And The Furious,” he tells the class.

Although the article focuses on advice for men seeking women, the workshop is intended for people of all genders and orientations. If you’d like to attend, please keep an eye on our workshop schedule. Additionally, Reid Mihalko will be joining us this month for our annual Gloryhole party.

You can read the whole article here.

Fisting Public Art Prank In Detroit

by thepleasurechest

crisco

Detroit filed for bankruptcy almost two weeks ago, inspiring local artist Jerry Vile to deliver a little comic relief. Witness “Vessel of Hope,” in which the prankster placed an enormous can of Crisco next to the city’s iconic Joe Louis Fist Statue. The clueless folks at Detroit’s Fox 2 reported that Vile hopes his work “may in someway ease the pain of having the Detroit bankruptcy shoved into our faces.” Well played, Mr. Vile.

If you’d like to learn more about fisting, come check out our free workshop, Advanced Anal Play on August 28th, with Damon Holzum in Los Angeles and Sarah Sloane in Chicago.
