Sexy Gifts Aren't Just for Lovers

Tuesday, December 6, 2011 6:18:56 PM America/Los_Angeles

Sexy Gifts Aren't Just for Lovers

Good friends deserve the gift of love too, be it self-love if they're single, or safe-love if they're out and about. If, for example, a particular friend is bemoaning the lack of lasciviousness in her life, then either THE NIGHT OFF or THE REBOUND pleasure sets could offer just the pick-me-up she needs. Or, if you have a single friend who often travels for business (and tends to have adventures along the way), a few ESSENTIALS Pocket Pleasure Sets for safer sex on-the-go would be a prudent choice. Of course, it's important to follow certain guidelines in order to avoid awkwardness, embarrassment, confusion… or a toxic cocktail of all three.

Your friend may be a viable sexy-gift-recipient, IF –
  • You regularly discuss your love lives (or lack thereof) in detail.
  • Your gift could in no way be misconstrued as an advance by you (unless that's your intention).
  • Your friendship is independent of any professional relationship (hello, sexual harassment).
  • Your friend has an open mind...
  • ...and a healthy sense of humor.

DIY Provocative Photography

Photo courtesy of Me In My Place

We've put together a few tips and tricks to help you look your best, whether you want to send a few jpegs to an out-of-town lover, or you're creating your own personal photo book as a holiday gift (Note: not an appropriate gift for a coworker or relative).

Preparation

  • Decide on a look. What do you want your picture to communicate? Coyness? Domination? Adventure? There are a million options that depend on your preference and what you think your recipient will enjoy. Take inspiration from other photos, from vintage pin-ups to classic Helmut Newton or edgy Araki. Our favorite narrative set – Sam Haskins' Cowboy Kate. For a more home-spun feel, take a look at Me In My Place.
  • Set the scene. Sprawled across an unmade bed or straddling a chair. Leaning over the kitchen counter, or diving into a pool. Chose locations and positions in which you feel comfortable.
  • Get yourself in the mood. Put on your favorite playlist, relax with a glass of wine and think about your audience and what you think gets them going. If you want to have a little fun with your favorite Jimmyjane vibrator before (or during) the photo shoot, that rosy-cheeked, satiated look can come across nicely in the pictures.
  • Costumes and props. Are you going for full-on artsy nude or seductive lingerie? Would a bowler (the hat, not the guy with a heavy ball) help communicate your message? Use a few key objects, but keep it minimal so as not to clutter the scene. Remember, you're the center of attention here.

Shooting

  • Lighting. A few soft lamps, indirect light or a soft filter (like a white sheet– avoid fire-risks, though!) shielding a bright light are a safe place to start. Skip the flash and overhead lighting, unless you're going for the Juergen Teller look – which is tough to master.
  • Taking the photo. Most cameras have an auto-timer. Set up a tripod (the ones from our friends at Joby are super-handy) or find a nice view propping the camera on a stable surface. You can also try a webcam and a picture-taking program like Photobooth.
  • Angles. Play with the position of the camera and your body. Try the camera high, then low (the view from above is usually more flattering). Maybe you want to take a shot from behind, or show a slim peek of your naked body through a crack in the door. Capture your reflection in a mirror, or your silhouette on the wall.
  • Posing. Try a wide range of poses to find the one that is most comfortable for you. Don't be afraid to take test shots first (the beauty of a digital camera). Warm yourself up by posing in non-sexual positions first – dancing, lounging, reading.
  • Tease. Remember that a little bit of skin goes a long way. Spike your demure side with a bit of exhibitionism. Play with obscuring your body to leave something to the imagination, then maybe give in a bit over the sequence of the photos.
  • Review. Before ending your photo session, check the photos full size on your monitor. This may inspire new shots, more shots or simply tell you you're ready to wrap.
  • Curate. Narrow down the shots to just a handful of favorites. You can always shoot more later once the first round is properly appreciated.
A note about sharing. It's best to ensure that these private photos do not fall into the wrong hands (i.e. keep the files on your home computer in a special folder, rather than on your company's server). Also, make sure you trust the person to whom you're giving the photos; you don't want to see an intimate shot given to a previous lover posted on your Facebook wall. With all that in mind, enjoy. Taking sexy photos should be fun. Remember, if you don't like the way they turn out, you can always take more. (Or take some with a partner, but we'll get into that in another post). Have you experimented with sexy photos? We'd love to hear your tips as well...

A Holiday Poem

Friday, December 23, 2011 1:00:14 AM America/Los_Angeles

DIY Provocative Photography
                        'Twas the night before Christmas (Hanukkah, day five) Not a creature was buzzing in the Jimmyjane hive. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the luster of the massage oil in AFTERGLOW. Women were nestled, all snug in their beds, While visions of vibrators danced in their heads. Men also nestled, so cozy and snug, Dreamt of masturbation sleeves (and maybe butt plugs). When a clatter arose, way up on the roof, It was Santa with gifts – rechargeable and waterproof. He came down the chimney, placed some under the tree, And some by the menorah, saying “I only do phthalate-free”. His job wasn’t done ‘til all mansions and shanties, Buzzed with vibrators, lubricants, candles and charitable panties. When each stocking overflowed Jimmyjane pink, He slid back up the chimney with a nod and a wink. On FORM 2 and FORM 3, on FORMs 6 and 4, On Pleasure Sets, LITTLE SOMETHINGS, on TCHO Chocolate and more! I heard him exclaim as he flew ‘cross the chasm, "Merry Chrismakah to all. And to all, an orgasm." Happy holidays, from your friends at Jimmyjane.

Apocalypse… now?

Saturday, December 31, 2011 3:00:33 PM America/Los_Angeles

DIY Provocative Photography

Between a global recession, solar storms, and a Mayan apocalypse, it would be reasonable to think 2012 is looking downright doom & gloomy.

We say – if this is truly our last year on earth, let’s make the most of it. Offend someone. It’s much more productive than offending no one. Re-redefine romanticism. It’s a travesty that “romantic” has become synonymous with “cheesy”. Give good dirty. We’re not talking filth, we’re thinking more along the lines of nutrient-rich soil for our fertile imaginations. Happy New Year, from all of us at Jimmyjane.

JIMMYJANE X ACE HOTEL

Monday, January 23, 2012 6:13:55 PM America/Los_Angeles

 

One of the great pleasures in doing what we do at Jimmyjane is doing it with others. Er… let’s try that again. One of the great pleasures in our ongoing creative endeavor here at Jimmyjane is having the opportunity to create with others. Whether we’re putting our heads together with Yves, PACT, Dave Stewart or Kabaret’s Prophecy, it’s as much about the journey as the destination. …and perhaps no one knows more about enjoying the journey than our friends at Ace Hotel. If you’ve had the opportunity to visit, you likely discovered that Ace is not so much a place as it is an experience. (While we acknowledge that this sounds hokey & perhaps preposterous, it’s fact.) The properties become a (perhaps slightly more hip and stimulating) home away from home for both travelers and locals alike. In each location, Ace has managed to stitch together an entire solar system of shops, restaurants and happenings – stay at Ace Hotel NYC and you’ll find it a pleasant challenge to escape the gravitational pull of The Breslin, Stumptown, Opening Ceremony, Project No. 8A, and No. 7 Sub. Needless to say, it’s an orbit we’re happy to join. Much as all things Jimmyjane emanate from our in-house design studio, Ace Hotel is animated by its own Atelier Ace. The creatives there consistently delight us with the impeccable aesthetic and quirky charisma of their work. They share our passion for considering every detail, and above all, our understanding that we’re not so much designing environments or products as shaping experiences. Coincidentally, we both use the same slogan to encapsulate this notion – It’s what’s inside that counts. You can find information on JIMMYJANE X ACE getaway packages for Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs and Ace Hotel New York in the Jimmyjane shop. During your stay, you’ll find additional Jimmyjane products in the minibar, and will be able to fulfill your voyeuristic desires with vintage erotic kitsch or the latest smart skin flicks showing on the new Video On Demand channel curated by Jimmyjane. If you’d like a taste of the experience in the comfort of your own home, browse our new JIMMYJANE X ACE Pleasure Sets and we’ll send you just what you need. Whether you’re already a fan of the Ace or are hoping to book your first visit, enter our Valentine’s Giveaway Getaway for your chance to win an over-the-top weekend escape for two – accompanied by the full line up of FORM Vibrators, and $500 cash to burn however you choose.

The Anatomy of a Good Time

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 11:35:03 AM America/Los_Angeles

 

It’s almost February, which means Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. With the elevated expectations of this holiday, it’s natural to want to skip it altogether. Don’t fret – while concocting the perfect celebration can seem like alchemy, here are a few simple guidelines that will significantly increase your chances of coming out golden.

Be decisive – Wear the pants, and take initiative – tell your significant other that you’d like to make the plans for some or all of the day. Plan ahead – Last minute arrangements will stress you out, cost you more, and be second-rate. Get creative – Believe it or not, it IS the thought that counts. If you’re going to give a card, make it yourself. If you’re going to give flowers, select and arrange them yourself – you know your lover better than the florist (we hope). Singletask – On this day, of all days, focus on the two of you. Turn off the cell. Ignore America’s next top model strutting by. Don’t pick a fight with the cabbie. Make it fun – Use the Gift Wizard to make finding the ideal gift a fun, stress-free experience – with a (very) pleasurable pay off. RECIPES FOR DISASTER Valentine’s tattoo. This tips over the edge from memorable to regrettable. Double date. It’s not prom. Kittens, puppies, etc. There will be heavy petting, but it will not involve you. Roses. Nothing says, “I put next-to-no thought into this,” like a bouquet of red roses. Looking for more ideas? Download our complete Better Than Roses Valentine’s Day Gift Guide.

Big Day, Small Budget

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 9:55:29 AM America/Los_Angeles

 

Times may be tight, but that shouldn’t put a crimp on your Valentine’s Day plans. Since money can’t buy you love anyway, take a hands-on, DIY approach, and you’ll have your best 14th yet. Here are three ideas that won’t break the bank –

1. Fondle the aubergine – Eat like royalty (but pay like a pauper) by cooking for yourselves. Head to the farmers’ market, see what looks good, then ask the growers about their favorite recipes. Build up from there, incorporating a few seasonal aphrodisiacs – fennel, blood orange and (of course) chocolate are great places to start. Splurge on champagne with the money you’ve saved. Tip – Plan something sexy for “dessert.” 2. Go local – The quick trip to St. Barts might be out of the question, but don’t rule out travel altogether. Explore an area of town you don’t know, then end up in a hotel bar before whisking your partner off to the elevator, and – what’s this? – producing a key. It’s a great surprise and easy to get right. Check in earlier in the day and stage the room or make other arrangements as you see fit. (If a room is outside the budget, you can just stay in the elevator and fulfill that OTHER fantasy you’ve always had.) Tip – A different bed is a great place to try different things. 3. Party favors – There are several free online applications that will allow you to easily make flip books from video. Use your phone or camera to film a few sexy seconds you know your partner will love, print them into a flip book, then slip it in their pocket to find later in the day. Tip – Let the real gift be reenacting your favorite scenes together. Looking for more ideas?

Foolproof Fooling Around

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 2:26:12 PM America/Los_Angeles

 

Devoting extra thought, effort and creativity to what we do for the person sharing our pillow and playtime can really pay off – after all, the couple that plays together stays together. Please Your Woman

1. Chain reaction – She’s already expecting something on Valentine’s Day (no surprise there), so instead, give her a series of small gifts that build up to the main event. 2. Hard bargain – Take her off guard by offering two irresistible options. Massages are an easy favorite, or you can use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to push the boundaries a bit further. After she chooses, write her an IOU for the path not taken – it’s an investment that will offer unexpected dividends. 3. Tickle her fancy – If you haven’t already, try introducing a vibrator – you might find it adds a new dimension for you both. Selecting your first vibrator can be a daunting task – make it easier by reading up on these Tips for Guys. Please Your Man 1. Jump the gun – This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday, so we recommend cooking up a weekend preview (and leaving the 14th to him). Kick it off with breakfast in bed – complete with supplies (and amusements) so you can stay there as long as he’d like. 2. Afternoon delight – Let’s be frank, what he wants most for Valentine’s Day doesn’t cost a dime. If he’s looking forward to evening festivities, why not treat him to “lunch”, and ambush him at high noon? He won’t know what hit him, but he’ll definitely like it. 3. Surprise surprise – If you’ve fallen into a pattern, not to worry – Valentine’s Day is a great time to mix things up. Seize the opportunity to do or ask for things that you’ve never tried before – he’ll embrace the variety, and you may surprise yourself with a new favorite. Looking for more ideas? Check out our Interactive Gift Wizard to find the provocative Valentine’s Day gift you’re looking for.
