Stockroom Valentines Sale 2018

The Stockroom sex toys

I know it seems awfully early to be thinking about Valentines day gift ordering with the cold chill of late-mid January still holding much of the nation in its iron grip, but hearts-and-chocolates day with (hopefully) a bit of make-an-extra-effort even-better-than-usual sex will be upon us before you know it. And while I cheerfully acknowledge that ErosBlog was long ago surpassed by a crop of knowledgeable and ridiculously expert sex toy review bloggers as a place for getting genuinely detailed information about modern sex toys, I still have a close relationship with the Stockroom, both as a customer and as an affiliate, that goes back more than twenty years now and leaves me feeling remiss in my sex-blogger duties if I don’t alert you to the major highlights of their big holiday blowout sales. The 2018 Valentine’s Day Sale started yesterday, runs through February 14, and features discounts up to 50%:

In addition to the discounts, this year’s sale features a fairly substantial-sounding “free gift bag” promotion of sexy goods worth $49.95 that appear in your shopping cart automatically once you’ve added $200 worth of merchandise. There’s also detailed Valentine’s Day Gift Guide to help with your shopping, and as always, orders over $99 ship for free.

Since ErosBlog is not fundamentally a BDSM-focused publication, and because kink emphatically is at the heart of the Stockroom’s strengths, I’ll limit my sale picks on the kinky side of things to a couple of the most heavily-discounted, high-ticket items that offer you the biggest potential for major savings, before moving on to slightly-more-vanilla sex toys. The first kinky bargain I want to highlight is the Joanna Angel Bondage Essentials starter kit, offered at 50% of the regular price for the duration of the sale:

The second kinky bargain is a 30% reduction on the rarely-discounted price of the expensive and luxurious Stockroom-original Bolero straitjacket in festive holiday red leather. These are the special design that lets you tuck away your submissive’s arms without inhibiting access to her breasts:

leather bolero red

(I say “her” because the Stockroom has somewhat-explicitly gendered this design; they offer a different Bolero for men, but it doesn’t come in red and it’s not on sale.)

Moving on from toys that are explicitly kinky, the Stockroom’s sale still has plenty to offer! My absolute favorite seasonal goody has got to be the Naughty Candy Hearts butt plugs:

Another massive half-off discount is on the KinkLab Mystic Vibe Wireless Vibrating Egg, which seems to have a lot of potential for couples fun, depending on who controls the remote:

remote control egg

I truly wish I’d gotten my hands on a review model of this toy before it came on sale, though, because quite a few years ago these sort of wireless eggs tended to have really weak radios and weren’t reliably responsive. KinkLab is the Stockroom’s in-house brand and they usually don’t sell anything that isn’t good, so I expect this one works as advertised. Anyway the advertising claim is impressive; they claim the remote can control the egg “from up to 10 meters away” “in an entirely different room”. That sounds good enough, anyway, to cover the really important use case, which is making your partner squirm on the other side of a table during dinner in a fancy restaurant!

Finally, because half the fun of V-Day sex is trying something new (at least if you’re dead sure it’s something both parties want to try, it’s never a good time to pull out all the gear for a surprise fantasy) I’m going to link you the 20%-off Tantus Bend Over Harness Kit for Beginners, that comes with “everything a beginner sensuous player would need to strap it on” including a low-riding harness with adjustable nylons straps plus large and small silicone dildos:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sex Books At The Stockroom

In the age of Amazon the Stockroom is rarely anyone’s first thought when dirty books — porn magazines, coffee table fetish art books, sexual how-to manuals — come to mind. But if like me you are conflicted about buying your sex books on Amazon — because they’ll sell you almost anything but they’re utter shit to adult authors and to any Amazon affiliate who has the temerity to put an Amazon link on a dirty web page — then it makes sense to do your adult book business at the same adult-friendly place you buy your kinky sex toys. The Stockroom has an excellent selection of adult reading material and an impeccable reputation as a retailer. What’s not to like?

Currently on my mental wishlist, because I am an eternal sucker for a big thick book of glossy fetish photos: Latex Fashion Photography from Goliath.

Valentine’s Day Gifts From The Stockroom

As y’all know, I’m a big fan of the seasonal sales from The Stockroom, because I’ve been a happy customer for more than 15 years and because they usually have really steep discounts during their big sales. My “problem” is that even though they sell sex toys of all kinds, their first love and greatest strength is BDSM gear. And that’s awesome, but even in 2014 it’s still a niche, and I always worry that highlighting too many kinky bargains will be off-putting to the substantial portion of my audience who doesn’t give two hoots for bondage and kink.

So my Valentines Day resolution this year is to post about the Valentine’s Day Sale at The Stockroom without mentioning a single one of their BDSM offerings. Is this limiting? Yes! But for you, I do these hard things. I believe I can manage by focusing on painless, unconstricting items that couples can use to have fun together. Let’s get started, shall we?

First of all, what is the greatest romantic holiday of the year without roses? But real roses are expensive and (if you source them the traditional flower-shop way) something of an environmental nightmare. And then, a few days later, they’re trash (or at best, compost). Feather roses are more fun (tickle party time!) and last much longer:

Another great couples gift is a sexy craft project that you can make together and use together. The Clone-A-Willy kit for making a dildo in his precise likeness has gotten a lot of press for this reason; you can have fun making it together and then play with it together or separately. Is she the type to steal your old sports shirts to sleep in when you’re not there? Perhaps she’ll enjoy a more personal memento!

For many of us, though, this is a holiday about chocolate. Don’t worry, we’ve got that covered! Indeed, why not get the make-it-out-of-chocolate version of the Clone-A-Willy kit?

kit for making a chocolate replica of your penis

But this is 2014, and what used to be sauce exclusively for the gander is now also available as sauce for the goose. Get those replica willies out of your mind for a moment. Did you know there was a Clone-A-Pussy Molding kit now available? (Sadly, apparently not in chocolate.)

vulva replica kit

This could be fun to use, but you’ll need to take care that you don’t give off any sort of creepy trophy-hunter vibe when it’s time to persuade the proprietor of your favorite pussy to participate in your proposed craft project. I can’t say I’m sanguine that the Stockroom sales copy totally avoids that pitfall:

This fun and easy do-it-yourself kit includes everything you’ll need to make an incredibly detailed, life-size rubber copy of the outer portion of any vagina from your own home. Use the mold over and over again and create your own treasured collection of life-like vaginas. Please note: Your new pussy replica is a shallow likeness, without a hole, and not designed for …ahem…. insertion. Think of it as a naughty homage, as opposed to a working masturbation device.

Moving rapidly onward, as perhaps we ought, there’s a very real chance that a person might much prefer to explore his or her favorite pussy in the most exquisite detail, rather than making a non-functional partial copy out of rubber. If you suspect your lover of feeling that way about your own pussy, perhaps you might surprise them with a handy inspection tool in festive holiday pink?

For the more timorous among you, it’s worth pointing out that sexual how-to books and DVDs are among the safest, most non-threatening sexy gifts you can give. Your partner can process the gift on his or her own time, a sex book or video can be the topic of later open-ended discussion, and in the end, it can be a great way to bring new sexual material into your relationship. There are several awesome titles in this year’s sale that you may want to consider:

Merry Sexmas 2013 From The Stockroom

sexmas sale

We’re barreling down the home stretch to Christmas 2013, so you should now pay heed to The Stockroom’s annual Sexmas sale. When searching for sex toys that look great coming out of a stocking, I always recommend art glass. This year, maybe something in an anatomically-correct Helmet Head butt plug?

These are like movie-theater popcorn buckets; they come in large, extra-large, 2x, and 3x sizes. Don’t let your eyes get bigger than your bottom!

Santa Shops At The Stockroom

It’s true! True at my house, anyway. It’s been several years at least since the last time there wasn’t something from The Stockroom under our tree.

I try hard not to junk up this blog with commercial messages, but when holiday deadlines loom, the lightning-fast service at The Stockroom is too good to pass up. I suspect their shipping department of being telepathic, or even precognitive; stuff doesn’t literally arrive before I’ve ordered it, but sometimes it feels that way.

First things first: Their Sexmas Sale is on now.

Coal and Switches: For lumps of coal, you’re on your own. But if she (or he) has been naughty, and it’s too much trouble to go out and cut some switches, how about letting them find the festive red handle of this short red riding crop sticking out of their Christmas morning stocking?

Get a Grip: In extreme cases, where naughtiness is not yet accompanied by contrition, you may find that you also need the matching red leather leash and collar:

Christmas Crackdown: Unfortunately, the leather riding crop may prove too gentle (and fun!) to deal with the sort of serious Christmas trouble you’ve got. If it’s just not stern enough to meet your needs, there’s a more severe, but still festive, alternative: the candy-red silicone Lolly Crop ought to fix you right up.

Exeunt: My work here is done. Ho ho ho!

Anal “Training” With Heart

It is a pity that this new offering in The Stockroom’s inventory is not part of the Valentine’s Sale running through February 14 that I blogged about earlier, but if the notion of the Heart Anal Trainer Kit puts little hearts in your eyes (or wherever), you’re in luck. There’s a flash three-day sale with a 20%-off coupon code (enter BEMINE20 at checkout) for most non-sale items this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so you can save on the heart-based trainer plugs and whatever else you’d like to order that’s not on sale:

Here’s some more information on the trainer plug kit:

The Heart Anal Trainer Kit includes three butt plugs that come in different sizes (small, medium, and large) and is perfect for both beginners that want to ease into anal exploration, and for advanced players that want to add more variety to their collection. Lightweight and comfortable, the buttplugs in this kit have tapered tips and are made of pure silicone with a satin-smooth texture that makes insertion a breeze and allow for extended wear. The red heart gem at the base of each plug adds a sexy and playful mood to complete the scene. Perfect for any occasion, the Heart Anal Trainer Kit adds lustfully erotic sensations to play time!

Thor’s Hammers For The Discreet Pagan

Back in my college days, I sometimes hung out with an assortment of Wiccans and neopagans and Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) types. I blended best, among that crew, with the pseudo-Vikings, if only because I knew how to, and was willing to, brew a foul-but-potent quick-mead in five gallon batches. Thus did I become familiar with the iconography of the Thor’s hammer, worn as jewelry in much the same way that Christians wear crosses. This late Saxon example was found in Norfolk with a metal detector:

gold thor's hammer pendant

But in the looming Mike Pence blood-soaked theocracy, where should a discreet follower of the old Norse gods carry his sacred hammer pendant, once the weekly public pagan burnings get underway? It’s a problem, but I think I may have found a solution. This Cock Screw Silicone Penis Plug Set may be marketed as a matched set of urethral sounds, but to my eye the plugs seem pretty clearly designed to function as crypto-hammers that a Thor-worshiper can carry you-know-where, without being discovered by any but the most intrusive of body searches:

cock screw urethral sound set silicone

Laugh now if you must, but you’ll thank me, ye Sons of Odin, after the first time you get caught up in a random religious purity sweep by the Rapture Brigades.

Meanwhile back in your urethra, here is some more information:

The innovative Cock Screw Set consists of a pair of thick silicone sounds featuring wing nut handles at the base so you can easily control how deep you want to penetrate or how slow you want to twist without fumbling.

The Cock Screw Set comes with two sounds: Spike and Twist. Use Spike for a smooth slide down your shaft, or really put those wing nut handles to use with Twist, turning its spiral shape deep inside until your eyes roll back. With both measuring an impressive 6.5 mm diameters at their widest points, you’ll be pretty well stuffed no matter which design you use.

The Cock Screw Set of sounds are made of 100% pure platinum cure silicone, making them ideal for urethral insertion. Both a body-safe material and able to be sterilized, these silicone plugs are also flexible, allowing for a more forgiving insertion. Made in the USA by the cock toy experts at Oxballs.

These sounds are currently quite heavily discounted as part of the Yuletide Naughty Or Nice sale that The Stockroom is running through December 26, as is much else besides! That sale is well worth checking out.

Update: It turns out I have blogged about these plugs before. The first time I saw them, I thought axe, not hammer. How quickly the world changes, and our outlook with it!
