Spotlight Review: The Tenga 3D is a Masterpiece of Form and Function


Sex toys have experienced something of a renaissance in both form and function over the past decade. The old plastic flashlight-tube style vibrator and jellied tube sock with ersatz pubic hair glued on still exist, but hardly seem like they’re of the same species as some of the new high-end pleasure products that innovators like Fun Factory, Tantus, and Tenga are bringing to market (and bedroom).

Simon Blaise: Bringing Spirituality Into Your BDSM Scene


Simon Blaise is an internationally-acclaimed BDSM educator and presenter who is also a vocal activist. As an attorney, Simon has been a pro bono advocate for members of BDSM communities who face legal problems because they love kink.

Cults, Vampires, Kink, and Indie Filmmaking: Laura Lee Bahr on Her New Novel “Long-Form Religious Porn”

long-form religious porn by laura lee bahr

When you’ve just written a novel that includes a cult that transforms its members into vampires through plastic surgery, a murderous dominatrix, and homages to Fifty Shades of Grey, where do you go to make your grand and glorious debut? If the answer isn’t obvious to everyone, it was to Laura Lee Bahr: On Friday, April 29, Bahr is coming to The Stockroom to throw a huge party for her brand new opus, Long-Form Religious Porn. Hosted by Lenora Claire, the only art curator (that we know of) to stage an exhibition of Golden Girls erotica, the evening is going to be a celebration of both the literary and the carnal, including drag by The Meatball Queen and live mannequins outfitted in The Stockroom’s finest latex and leather fashions.

Getting Wet: How to Find the Right Lube for Slick, Hot, and Safe Sex

The Stockroom


According to a study that came out last month, using spit to lube up your partner’s ass for anal sex is a really bad idea. While you recover from your surprise, here’s some details.

The study, released by the National Institutes for Health, looked at the sexual practices and health of 1,312 men who have sex with men (MSM) and came to the conclusion that using saliva to lubricate for penetration carries a high risk of transmitting rectal gonorrhea. According to the abstract: “Almost half of rectal gonorrhoea cases may be eliminated if MSM stopped using partner’s saliva for anal sex.”

We’re not exactly shocked to find that all those porn films we’ve been watching haven’t been entirely accurate on the subject of sexual health, but we did think that this is a great opportunity to talk about the importance of keeping a fresh container of your favorite lube within easy reach for sexy funtimes.

Even with experienced players, lube doesn’t get as much credit as it should. The fact is that although it might not be one of the sexiest-looking things that you’ll see while cruising the Stockroom website or browsing our store, it’s one of the most essential. For both health and pleasure’s sake, you need not only to have lube on hand, but the right lube.
