Sex, Chocolate, and You

Chocolate or sex... which do YOU prefer?

Chocolate has been said to be a natural aphrodisiac and has been said to increase libido as well as improve your sex life. Chocolate has even been said to help women when suffering from premenstrual tension and some have even joked that chocolate is better than sex.

Nothing is better than sex in our opinion, but to each their own!

July 7th is Chocolate Day (apparently, there’s more than one). So we have rounded up some interesting facts about our second favorite treat:

- Mayans created a ritual beverage shared during marriage ceremonies made from cocoa
- Approx. 40 million people worldwide depend on cocoa for their livelihood
- Most of the world’s chocolate comes from West Africa
- Cocoa beans once served as money in South American civilizations
- Chocolate contains phenylethylamine (PEA), a natural substance said to produce a feeling similar to falling in love
- Chocolate melts in your mouth because the melting point of cocoa butter is just blow 98.6 degree F
- Allowing chocolate to melt in your mouth produces brain activity similar to passionate kissing

Most of the world's cocoa supply comes from West Africa

Since it increases sex drive and produces feelings similar to love or kissing, chocolate can be just as good a friend to the single as it can a couple celebrating a romantic occasion (ie. wedding, honeymoon, Valentine’s Day, divorce).

FAQ: Basix Rubber & Lube Compatibility

BASIX Made Fresh Daily

Time and again we get asked about what types of lubes are compatible with our Basix Rubber Works Collection of dongs and vibrators and specifically if silicone lube is safe to use. This question likely stems from what people know about Silicone toys not being compatible with silicone lubricants.

But this rules doesn’t apply to our Basix Collection. These dongs and vibrators are made here in the USA at Pipedream’s factory in Chatsworth using hypoallergenic, phthalate-free rubber so they are compatible with all different types of lubricant that Pipedream makes including original waterbased MOIST, Anal, Gel, Lite, Glycerine Free, Mist, Heating or even our MOIST Flavored lubricants.

ANOTHER QUESTION ASKED since this was originally posted…
Can they be removed to clean the dong? –
Yes, the dong comes in the box and needs to be attached to the included harness. It is not compatible with other harnesses, but Pipedream is working on a complete line of interchangeable dongs and universal harness, which we will unveil at ANME in July 2011. You can clean the silicone dong and nylon harness using our Anti-Bacterial Toy Cleaner or soap and hot water.

If you are looking for a larger or more versatile harness and enjoy the high quality of true medical grade silicone, be sure to check out our new Fetish Fantasy Elite collection. Here are some blog posts with all the details about our beginner, advanced and new breathable harness (for those who need extra comfort) as well as the wide variety of dongs and dildos that you can use with them.

Vibrators 101: Part 2 G-Spot Vibes

Diagram of the G-spot

The “G-spot” is short for Gräfenberg Spot and refers to a small bean shaped area of the vagina that when stimulated properly can result in more powerful orgasms and/or female ejaculation.

It is located about 1 to 3 inches up from the vaginal wall between the opening of the vagina and urethra. There is debate over the proof of its existence, yet countless women swear by it and many toys are now designed with G-Spot stimulation in mind.

For a more technical inside look at the G-spot, female prostate and more information about female ejaculation visit The Clitoris dot com.

For now, lets delve into Part 2 of our Vibrators 101 blog series focusing onG-Spot Vibes!

PD1149-11 Pretty Pearl G-Spot Massager in Pink

Pipedream Products has nearly fifty vibrators designed for G-spot stimulation. Why so many?

Because everyone is built a little differently, so its best to visit your gynecologist and familiarize yourself with the landscape of your own anatomy so you’ll have a better idea of what length or girth will work right for you.

In part 1 of our Vibrators 101 blog series, we mentioned the Le Reve Curved Massager. It’s a great place to start if you are new to vibes or attempting to discover your G-spot for the first time.

Our Pretty Pearl G-Spot Massagers are made of flexible medical grade TPR and offers moderately powerful vibration, perfect for the beginner. It’s silky smooth, non-porous and waterproof so you can use it in the shower or bath.

Another vibe that has received numerous rave reviews for G-Spot stimulation is the Slender G. Made of hard plastic, a little lube will go a long way with this vibe. One reviewer officially dubbed it the “squirt whisperer” in her review of the vibe. In her own words:

“…if you have a vagina, and you want to see if you can squirt, this is your best bet. Hell, even if you don’t want to squirt it’s a great toy, it provides a good range of vibration, and it’s only around $16!”

PD1015 is available in Pink or Purple

Women who prefer to stimulate their clitoris externally while massaging the G-spot internally should definitely check out our Hannah Harper Butterly Vibe. It’s waterproof, boasts 7 functions, is made of silicone and curved to hit the G-spot with small nubs for increased sensation.

Shock Therapy 101

E-Stim is an abbreviation for electro stimulation (aka electrosex) and is a sexual practice, popular in some fetish communities that involves applying electrical stimulation to the nerves of your body. Some choose to apply the e-stim to the genitals, back or extremities (arms/legs/hands/feet) before or during sex.

Electro stimulation can be dangerous if not performed properly and it is highly recommended that you consult your physician before trying it for the first time. Additionally when purchasing any e-stim product from Pipedream’s Shock Therapy line, read the included instruction and warning manual in its entirety before operating the unit.

PD3723-00 Shock Therapy Kit

Our Shock Therapy line is from the Fetish Fantasy Series and includes the Original Shock Therapy Kit as well as newer additions to the line including the Pleasure Probe, Cock Cage and Nipple Clamps.

Penis Pumps 101

Different men use penis pumps for different reasons including penis enlargement, aiding in achieving better erections, erectile dysfunction, or simply for pleasure. They are also a great alternative for those who do not wish to take prescription medication to achieve an erection.

Whatever the case may be, how to use the pump is the same. Below you’ll find written instructions as well as a video* demonstrating how to use two basic types of pumps on a real penis.

*This video is #NSFW and shows a model using a pump on his penis.

Apply lubricant to your penis and the inside of the donut shaped orifice on the opening of the pump. We recommend using a water based lube such as our Moist Personal Lubricant to avoid any issues with the rubber or latex ring.

Slide your penis into the cylinder and press the base firmly against your body until you have an airtight seal. Then squeeze the bulb (hand piece) to increase air pressure inside the cylinder. This causes an increase in blood flow to the penis.

If you are new to using pumps, start SLOW. We recommend the Classix Power Pump or our new Beginner’s Power Pump. We also have a new Digital Power Pump that features an LED lit display allowing you to see the exact amount of pressure that is inside the chamber. Check it out here along the complete PUMP WORX collection.

Digital Power Pump PD3263-23

Begin pumping a little at a time, you don’t want to over pump, especially if this is your first time using one. Continue pumping until your penis is firmly erect and stop for a moment to listen to your body and make sure the pressure is comfortable to you. Using a penis pump should NEVER be painful. Look to make sure there is no unusual discoloration or veins that look like they are bulging excessively.

If things feel ok, pump a little bit more and pause to access how you are feeling again. If it is uncomfortable or painful in anyway, use the quick release air valve to release the pressure inside the cylinder.

If you are new to using pumps, its recommended to limit your pumping time to 20 minutes or less. This can be increased to about 30 minutes after you are more experienced using pumps and understand your limits.

If you are using a pump for enlarging your penis, know that pumping results are temporary and you will need to maintain a pumping ritual for up to six months to see enlargement results. Even then you will need to keep a routine going to maintain what you have achieved.

Beginner's Power Pump, purple (PD3241-12)

Beginner’s Power Pump, purple (PD3241-12)

Men have reported success using penis pumps to enlarge the size of their penis by regularly pumping 3 to 4 times a week for 20 to 30 minutes. It is important to give your body recovery time between sessions. You should also be aware that the enlargement will be seen more in the girth of your penis as opposed to the length of your penis.
The only way to permanently enlarge your penis, without a regular pumping routine, is through surgery. If you experience pain when using the a penis pump, you should immediately cease use of the pump and contact your physician.

Spontaneous Vs. Receptive Desire

CourtneyJohnny_3
A man’s desire is more spontaneous in nature, while a woman’s is what is called receptive desire. At least according to Susan Crain Bakos, the author of The Sex Bible For Women.

In an excerpt from her book, Bakos states:

“Men’s spontaneous longing for sex sets the tone for the general definition of desire, even though desire in women is more often receptive than spontaneous. A woman doesn’t see her desire (the way a man does), in fact, she might ignore it altogether until touch stimulation awakens it.”

So with this in mind gentlemen, it’s more important than ever to be equipped with the right pleasure products, especially if you’re like those of us who aren’t gifted with their hands!

Enter Pipedream Products and the plethora of ways you can spark that receptive desire in your special lady by touching her the right way, with the right instrument. All you have to do is find the right time!
pd2508-12_02
Take a tour through our website where you’ll find bullets for external stimulation, clit ticklers, G-spot vibes, affordable glass massagers, do-it-all high end vibrators and much much more.

Unlike a man, whose desire can increase when sex is infrequent, women need sex regularly in order to have their sexual responsiveness heightened.

Dr. Winnifred B. Cutler MD cited in his book Love Cycles that in addition to boosting desire, boosting the frequency of sex can have other benefit for women. These benefit include: better fertility, stronger bones, better cardiovascular health, less depression, and fewer menopausal symptoms.

So remember the more often you keep her happy, the more she is going to respond to you when you are ready for some lovin!

Silent Night, Horny Night

Do you enjoy vibrators but hate how loud some of them make?
00_Shhhhh

Don’t despair, here is some information on how to pick a vibe that generates less noise and how to quiet the loud ones you already have in your collection.

• More power equates to more noise. Vibrators with larger batteries tend to pack a more powerful punch where it counts, but with that comes more noise.
02_batteries

• Vibrators made of plastic or other hard, non-porous materials are traditionally louder than softer pliable materials such as Silicone TPE or TPR.
01_Hard vs Soft

• Try a remote control vibrator. These are designed to be quieter because people are more likely to use them in public.
04_remotes

• Where you use the toy can play a role in how loud your vibrator sounds. For instance, bathrooms have hard surfaces, which will increase decibel levels. Using the toy in your bedroom where there are softer surfaces will help absorb sound waves.
Bathroom Towel

• Place a blanket (or towel) over the part of the toy housing the motor. This will help muffle the loud noises it makes.

• Use the toy under a big comforter or thick blanket to smother sounds from those who could be in an adjacent room.

• Cover up the noise with your favorite mood music. Turn the volume up just loud enough to tune out the sound of the vibrator.

Remember, there is no such thing as a completely silent vibrator. Perhaps one day technology will provide us a way to offer this to people, but for now we hope these tips, tricks and techniques will help you enjoy your favorite vibe.

If you have any questions about a specific vibrators you’re thinking about picking up, be sure to ask one of our Sexperts so they can help you make the right choice!

Too Worn Out For Love?

Let’s face it, we all work hard. Sometimes at the end of the day finding the energy to get busy in the bedroom can seem more trouble than it is worth. The New York Times reported on a study that indicates this is a common problem for many.
"I told you I have a headache after cooking you dinner and washing the dishes!!"

Redbook reports that the problem seems to be more common for women, and that men seem to be ready to go with bodies that act like obedient soldiers acting out orders for Sgt. Dick.

Both reports indicate that what you do in the hour or two before bed can play a major role in being in the mood for lovemaking.

Pipedream Products can also help. We offer a variety of potions that are formulated to boost overall energy and libido. Pick your poison from the list below and take one about 30 minutes prior to sexual activity for that little boots you need to get your sexual motor running.

If it has been one of those days where you just don’t have the energy, remember that it is the togetherness that counts. Sex is great, but sometimes a nice 10 minutes massage and 20 minutes of snuggling with that special someone can sooth your soul almost as much as a good sex.

Be sure to go back and check out the 20 ways Redbook suggests to boost your energy and libido. Combine these with some of Pipedream’s special potions or massage products and you’re bound to find some deeper satisfaction in the bedroom and beyond.
