The Artful Bachelorette

by thepleasurechest

bachelorette

Bachelorette parties are a hallowed tradition. But what if you want to try something different? The Artful Bachelorette is an NYC-based company that hosts nude life-drawing classes for special occasions.

Each 2 hour class includes a nude male art model and drinks served by a topless waiter. We think this is a great alternative to the same old strip club. The Huffington Post has an interview with the company’s founders and one of their popular models.

If you’re planning a bachelorette party this wedding season, don’t forget that we offer Sex Toy Socials and sex ed workshops for small groups. Contact your local Pleasure Chest for details.

fortefemme

Want to learn the art of female dominance with an expert? Our dear friend Midori is conducting another ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Intensive from June 28th to June 30th in New York City. And there are just three spots left! If you’re curious about getting personalized, practical advice on female domination, this is a great opportunity. Here’s Midori’s description of what you can expect:

From Friday night to Sunday afternoon, you will be immersed in a safe, private and supportive environment exploring what it means to find and enjoy your power as a dominant femme. Midori’s uniquely-designed curriculum takes a “Head-Heart-Hands” approach that integrates the eroticism of your mind and body, as well as of your partner, instead of trying to teach you one-size-fits-all scripts or focusing on technique.

If you’d like a better idea of what to expect, you can read Huffington Post blogger Vanessa Pinto’s post about her experiences attending ForteFemme last year. For more information and to nab one of the remaining spots in New York, head on over to the Forte Femme site.

Celebrate National Masturbation Month

2

by thepleasurechest

womanorgasmHave you heard? May is National Masturbation Month. Yes, you have an excuse (not that you needed one) to masturbate all month long.

Alternet has a great article on the unusual history of this celebration of self love, including some juicy anecdotes from the “Masturbate-a-thon” founded by Carol Queen.

 In 2012, Carol’s favorite moment occurred at the “Greatest Distance Ejaculated” competition when challenger Punk Nine broke the record by shooting his semen 13 feet. He had practiced by ejaculating into the Pacific Ocean.

Impressive. This year, some horny folks in Phily are putting the fun back in fundraising with their own charitable Masturbate-a-thon. They’ve already raised $820 of their $3000.

We’re doing our part with free workshops on the G-Spot and “GirlGasms” at our Los Angeles and New York stores. We’re also partnering with We-Vibe to give away some of the best toys for self pleasure. Keep checking our blog for details.

How will you observe National Masturbation Month?
