Oregon State University ‘Library Girl’ Trades Diploma For Dildos!

kendra sunderland

Just days after announcing our offer for an exclusive toy deal, we’ve finally cemented an exclusive contract with 19-year-old Kendra Sunderland! The infamous Oregon State University ‘Library Girl’ has commanded headlines after her arrest two weeks ago, when police received a tip about the masturbation video she filmed in the OSU library. The Pipedream deal softens the blow of a tough week – Kendra appeared in court yesterday to fight the public indecency citation that the state is holding against her.

“We’re very excited to have such a trending figure as part of the Pipedream family of brands,” said Pipedream Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “This solidifies our commitment to remaining on the cutting edge. We keep our finger on the pulse of pop culture to bring the hottest new stars to the market first.”

“I’m beyond excited to be working with Pipedream! All of this has happened so fast, it still shocks me that people are willing to help my dreams come true,” said Sunderland. “Pipedream has a fun crew and I can’t wait to start working with them and start getting some awesome name brand products out there!”

The manufacturer will create a custom line of toys that revolve around Kendra and her persona, with a molding and shoot scheduled for next week. Sunderland is scheduled for her next court appearence April 28, and If convicted, Kendra faces a maximum fine of $6,250 and up to one year in jail.

Exploring “Weird” Sex Toys, Part 3

PD3725-05 shock therapy electro massage kit

What the hell is “weird” anyway? Strange and bizarre; “unusual or surprising in a way that is unsettling or hard to understand.” Sometimes we’re afraid of the unknown and instead of exploring our curiosities and filling ourselves with the knowledge of experience, we quickly dismiss things we don’t understand.

Well guess what — ignorance ain’t bliss, people, especially in your pants! You may have popped your cherry years ago, but there’s still like, an infinite source of sensations to explore. Broaden the horizons of your ecstasy and experiment with a new shape, a new texture, or even a new fetish!

Fantasy X-tensions Vibrating Real Feel 2” Extension

“But I can’t feel anything!” he may complain. Oh, well that’s convenient because I can’t feel anything either when you cum and I don’t. The female orgasm is so flippin’ underrepresented that some dinguses think it’s actually a myth. Just because it takes a little extra work to bring a vag to climax doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. Most people can’t cum from penetration alone anyway – our clit is where the action really is. That’s where this bomb ass Fantasy X-tension comes in. Not only does it feature a super-powerful clit stimulator, but the tight shaft and stretchy ball strap will keep your partner hard so the pounding can prevail on even if his boner doesn’t. – no excuses!!

Shock Therapy Professional Wireless Electro-Massage Kit

electrosex, estimThe words “Shock Therapy” may instill some uncomfortable visions of like, lobotomies and shit, but I swear that electrosex is the shit! The OG Shock Therapy Kit is actually a staple in the day-to-day office life here at Pipedream Headquarters. I could name at least five employees other than myself who keep one at their desk for tense shoulders and achey backs – true story. Regardless of the intricate control unit, the OG Shock unit remains on of our best-selling toys. But we heard your pleas for an upgrade so we stepped up our game with the new-and-improved Wireless Electro-Massage Kit. The wireless pads allow more freedom of movement and the easy-to-use control unit even features a diagram with suggested placement inspired by the ancient Chinese pressure points. Enjoy a deep tissue massage or add some jolt to your next sack sesh.

Icicles No. 49

anal plug, bondage, floggerThis shit just makes me laugh – and that’s totally cool! Personally, I think a lot of people take sex way too seriously. If laughing is one of the most enjoyable feels in the world, then what’s wrong with combining it with the other most enjoyable feel in the world? The Icicles flogger is actually a top-seller and best-reviewed toy – and it deserves the title, too. The butt plug is everything an anal aficionado looks for – super-smooth, tapered tip, thin neck, wide base – and the flogger’s bunch of super-soft leather tresses offer everything from a light tease to a sharp bite.

You may be thinking, uh, okay, so what about this perfect product makes you giggle? Furries. Okay, maybe not furries themselves, because I’m not tryna dismiss anyone’s sexual taste, but wearing this plug totally makes me feel like some sorta BDSM horse goddess who doesn’t even need a Dom(me) ‘cause I can flog myself with this bad boy! We actually whipped it out during my last appearance on Veteran porn star Ginger Lynn’s podcast “Blame It On Ginger,” where my girl got a kick out of this Icicle in the very same fashion, popping it in and trotting around the studio – beaming – as we cackled every time she paused to swing her hips and wag her “tail” or spank herself. You gotta check out the show on skidrowstudios.com.

Remembering David Denson

David Denson

We are extremely saddened by the news of David Denson’s passing. He was a good friend and integral part of the pleasure products industry for the last 20 years. David was loved by many and will be greatly missed by everyone at Pipedream. We extend our deepest sympathies to David’s family, friends, and co-workers.

REAL TALK! A Pegging Manifesto

I don’t really know how else to put it – pegging is the shit. For the n00bs who have no idea what I’m talking about – pegging is the term for when someone uses a strap-on to butt fuck someone else. Seriously! It’s probably, like, my number one favorite sex act ever. I just really love screwing with gender roles and there’s a certain dominance that overwhelms me when I’ve got a grizzly dude on their hands and knees. Plus, what better way to stick it to the patriarchy then to stick it in their ass?

Unfortunately, I had to learn my pegging etiquette the hard way (lol hard) by trial and error. If it’s your first time, keep these things in mind for the safest, most pleasurable experience.

Lube. Lube, lube, lube, lube, lube. Use lube, and use a lot of it. Butt holes don’t naturally lubricate the way our other orifices do, so you gotta help a brother out. Personally, I prefer silicone lube because it’s super-duper slick and a little lasts a looooong time, whereas water-based lubes dry up and must be continuously reapplied. Some people are divas and think silicone lube is annoying to clean up – and you know what I’ve got to say about that? Quit yer bitchin! A few extra minutes of cleanup is worth keeping that precious, uber-sensitive butt hole happy. There is one little problem with silicone lube, though – you can’t use it with silicone toys. But don’t you fret! If you’ve got a silicone cock, water-based lube is just fine, and will only ensure an even more wet and wild ride!

Smooth, tapered, AND glow-in-the-dark?! YES PLEASE!!!!

If the person you’re pegging has little to no experience with anal – DO NOT DIVE IN DICK FIRST!!! Our butt holes actually need to be trained to maintain a certain elasticity that a good anal pounding requires. Before you even invest in a super dope harness and the big, glittery cock of your dreams – try some finger play with your partner first, to make sure they even like it. Once a finger becomes more and more comfortable, upgrade to a small toy, then gradually work your way up. Make sure the plugs and dildos you choose have a tapered tip to ease insertion and a base that’s wider than the toy’s widest point so it doesn’t get lost forever (or really, until an embarrassing hospital visit…) I suggest using smoooooooth, tapered toys with no drag for beginners solo anal use - glass, metal, and ceramic are perfect – and softer materials like silicone and PVC for strap-on use. Though hard materials slide the best, I don’t let other people use them on me because one wrong movement is just, like… oooouuuuuccccchhh!!!!!!

Now, if you’re gonna dive into the poop shoot, you’re gonna need to be prepared for the not-so mystery that lies inside. There’s just no way around it and no way to put it lightly – there’s poop up there. It’s just a biological fact. You can enema all you want, you can starve yourself all day (which I seriously don’t even recommend for any reason ever), but there’s still gonna be poop up there… AND THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. To the person being pegged – don’t you ever be ashamed of your bodily functions. To the person doing the pegging – don’t you ever shame someone for their bodily functions. If you can’t stomach the possibility of poo, then you have no business pegging.

A lot of cis straight dudes get super skeeved out when considering pegging, like they have to defend their heterosexuality. But, uh, guess what guys – every cis dude has a prostate, and every prostate feels AWESOME when you get at it. Period. It’s just, like, science. Also, FYI, your sexual identity is not defined by the sexual acts you perform or even the sex partner(s) you have – it’s whatever YOU identify as. And even if getting it up the butt did make you gay – so what? There’s nothing wrong with being gay anyway.

We’re just making more dreams come true, nbd…

With millions of units sold to date, it’s safe to say that Pipedream Extreme Toyz make many people happy across the globe – including Joshua Young. The 32-year-old Californian is currently battling Stage Four cancer, and his best friend is helping him score everything on his bucket list – including a hot piece of ass! The best-selling Fuck Me Silly, to be exact.

“[Joshua] has both Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome and Stage Four cancer,” explained his friend. “What started out as just skin cancer has spread over his entire body and we are asking for help to fulfill his bucket list… Disneyland Tours, Europe, cross country travel… He is undergoing treatment right now and we only hope there is good news, but with only a 5-10% chance at even beating this Stage Four cancer, the outlook is grim – but he remains in good spirits.”

Josh’s story was brought to mass attention when his friend gifted him the Pipedream Extreme Toyz Fuck Me Silly and posted a video of it on liveleak.com. The video has since accumulated an impressive 110,000 views!!! We strive to bring everyone’s fantasies to life, so we sent Josh a little extra love with an exclusive gift basket packed with playtime essentials.

We’re bringing Oregon State Library Porn Girl’s dreams to life!

Kendra Sunderland has commanded headlines over the past month after her masturbation video in the Oregon State University library went viral. Now widely known as the ‘Oregon State Library Porn Girl’, Kendra admitted her lifelong XXX dreams in a recent interview saying, “I would also love to have my own line of sex toys just ‘cause I’ve always dreamed of that since I found out what a dildo was!”

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 11.06.05 AM

We have a pretty legit history of superstar collections including Ron Jeremy, Hannah Harper, Mia Isabella, and most recently Bonnie Rotten, so we reached out to Kendra with a six figure contract to add her to their range of best-selling brands.

“Pipedream strives to bring everyone’s fantasies to life,” explained Pipedream Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “Well, here’s the offer to make Kendra’s dreams come true!”

FAQ: Easing Into Restraints

Pipedream Extreme Hogtie Kit PD3931-00

KITTEN WITH BLUE BLANKET Question: I’ve never tried bondage, and I really want to, but all of those contraptions are kinda intimidating. What do you suggest a beginner use to ease into it all?

Even for a Professional Perv like myself, the infinite variety of restraints was pretty overwhelming when I first entered the scene too. Once I dove in, though, it was like I had discovered the freakin’ mecca of sexuality; it opened a whole new universe of sex beyond just the suck and fuck I had become so bored of. Not only did BDSM offer an entirely new realm of ways to arouse my ladyboner, it also provided an infinite possibility of positions for relieving said ladyboner. In fact, the day I discovered bondage was the same day I discovered the best position for the most comfortable, pleasurable anal sex – but that’s a whole ‘nother story.

The pleasure derived from restraints varies just as much as the selection of gear itself. Get the low down on what there is available to you, and consider your desires, comforts, and boundaries. Are there certain materials that you prefer? Are you aiming for a particular position? Do you want minimum or maximum movement of the restrained? Here are just a few of your options.

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 12.31.39 PMMetal cuffs are like, the OG restraint most people grab at first. They’re super easy to find, affordable, and obvi the material is crazy strong so it can safely last a lifetime. They’re perfect for restraining wrists behind the back, behind the head, or my fav – right in front to maintain easy handie access. Metal cuffs are also the perfect device for attaching your partner to (most) bed posts, armchairs, and wherever else your desires guide you, and there are tons of styles to satisfy any taste. There are classic silver metal handcuffs to fulfill the common cop fantasies, bright metallic anodized cuffs for those of us who are usually like, “ooooooh, shiiiiinnnnyyyyy,” bedazzled cuffs for the divas, and furry cuffs because duh.

pd2183-23_02Breathable cuffs are what I typically suggest to beginners because they’re made with softer materials like vinyl, neoprene, and/or polyester. These more malleable materials guaranteeing uber-comfort and usually offer a super-wide range of size adjustment, making them perfect for restraining both wrists and ankles. The really cool thing about most breathable cuffs are that they can be separated from one another, usually by a metal clip, for use with other devices like sex swings, bed restraints, chest harnesses, and more.

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 12.46.56 PMBed Restraints are probably one of my fav options because I’m super lazy and they’re way easy to keep in place and ready-to-use while still remaining discreet. My favorite type are Wraparound Bed Restraints because every strap is completely adjustable as to adapt to any sized bed. There are five total straps – one long strap runs up the center of the mattress and has two shorter straps connected to either end. The shorter straps will have removable cuffs at the ends and lead to wherever you’d like your limbs arranged – to each corner of the bed, at the top and bottom of the bed, or on either side of the bed. It sounds like a lot of work to put into place, all having to pickup your mattress and re-making your bed and stuff – but I swear, it’s totally worth it! Because when you’re not taking advantage of your new bedroom bondage playground, you can simply stuff each cuff between the mattress and box spring for easy access.

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 1.22.38 PMHogties are for those of us in need of a very specific position. Many of them won’t have super adjustable straps or slack because the point is completely restrain their limbs to limit their movement, while still allowing the Dom(me) the freedom to move or flip their partner however they’d like. Most times you’ll see a hogtie being used to position the hands and feet behind the back. This may be one of the most intimidating restraints, so beginners should start with a slightly more comfortable option like the Position Master with Cuffs.

Screw the Spoon!
How to Choose the Perfect Gag

The BDSM alphabet can be overwhelming in and of itself, so I can’t imagine how a n00b might feel when face-to-face with a wall, an aisle, or an entire online catalog packed with bondage gear. Not only is there a universe of devices to tease and please your kinky curiosities, but each toy even has a variety of styles! There are floggers, whips, and crops for spanking; cuffs, hogties, and bed bondage for restraint; blindfolds, half masks and full masks for sensory deprivation. Whether you require silence for your sub or prefer a jaw wide-open and ready for whatever you put inside – there are even plenty of gags to choose from. But before you go stuffing inanimate objects in your lover’s mouth, keep these things in mind when choosing your gag.

FFLE-50shadesSCREENcap3

The Strap

Leather, belt-like straps usually offer the sturdiest placement, while adjustable polyester straps offer a wider variety of sizes. The strap is equally as important as the gag itself – without a decent strap, your gag will be of no use. Zero! Zilch! Nada! It is not your lover’s job to keep the gag in place with their teeth – that, for lack of a better term, would just be flippin’ annoying, and their teeth and jaws will not be happy.

Screen Shot 2015-02-11 at 1.40.55 PM

The Gag

Gag sizes and materials vary. If you’re a first-timer, you’re gonna want a small diameter (try an inch) and a soft material, like rubber, though you should be aware that rubber is porous and requires meticulous storage and cleaning as there is no way to completely sterilize them. Gags usually fall within 1 and 2 inches, allowing any sized jaw to find a comfy fit. The most fun option to consider, though, is the material. You’ve got your usual rubber for comfort, metal for hardcore play – even candy gags to satisfy your sweet tooth!

PD3764-00_03

Gag styles

Ball gags are either solid or breathable (i.e. there are holes in the gag), the latter of which is super suggested for first-timers or those of you who like their playtime all wet and slobbery. O-ring gags keep their mouth wide open, as not to interfere with a perfectly good orifice, of course. There are even gags with attachments, like our Extreme Compliance Kit that includes an ash trash, duster, and toilet brush for hardcore D/s roleplaying, or our Face Fucker ball gags that turn your mouth into a biological sex machine!

pd3698-03_03

Don’t forget – safety and consent is the only option for BDSM play. Be sure you and your partners set boundaries prior to any scene. Safe words are imperative (mine’s “pineapple”), but when you’re playing with gags or full coverage masks, you’re gonna need to substitute that word with a hand signal.
