“Sex is…”: Real people in their own words

Wait -- where was it??

Wait — where was it??

“Hi. My name is _______, and I have sex.”

So begins each of the videos in Sex is Back, the fabulous collection of sex positive, first-person testimonials published by The Pleasure Chest, the oldest operating adult store in the U.S. and one of the first to pioneer a “shame-free” environment.

Inspiration for the series came from decades of hearing store visitors share feelings and experiences they weren’t sharing with anyone else. In the words of the Pleasure Chest team, “…as scary and taboo as sex can be, our sexuality is at the core of who we are. All of us are inundated daily with images and messaging from mainstream media that narrowly define sexuality. Our years of experience have taught us that healthy sexuality takes on many forms and this is why we created Sex Is Back.”

Dubbed “unembellished stories from across the sexual spectrum,” the videos are short bites from real people, each one on a single topic and many as short as one minute. Alternately funny, moving, entertaining, and informative, all are engaging–and if you watch enough, you’re likely to see some that surprise you…and some that feel incredibly familiar.

While the videos are not visually explicit, some of the topics are, so you may want to grab your headphones before pressing “play.” Then sit back and enjoy the glimpse “into the minds and bedrooms of others.”

Thank you to the Pleasure Chest and everyone on camera for inviting us in.
