Preface This is a review of an adult site that sells sexual aids. If such information offends you, please do not continue to read this. This review may contain questionable material, naughty words and in depth descriptions of products. Again, if these topics make you uncomfortable
stop reading now.
Lets face it, there are some people who just cant walk into an adult bookstore. Be it the rather outdated image that surrounded them in the seedy seventies or the thought that someone may see them inside hey, if they are in there too, I doubt they are going to go running around town telling tales. In Southern California there are only a handful of chain stores that cater to adult wants and needs F Street and Dr. Love are the two that come to mind first. There is such a taboo surrounding these establishments that most are scared to death to even walk through the front door to check them out a true shame for those who like to take a walk on the wilder side of life. With the internet a safe haven for the perpetually shy, sites like My Pleasure thrive on those who have a wicked streak but cant manage to bring it out and visit a retail shop. I was pretty shocked to find this in the database so if someone requested to have it added
So, whats the deal with this site? First off, it isnt loaded with pornographic images of people engaged in sexual acts, nor is it presented in an offensive manner but lets face it, this isnt a site that kids should be visiting through so please make sure you are alone when browsing the shop. There are no pop up advertisements and if you do elect to receive their catalog, you can unsubscribe at any time and your personal information will never be sold. The site takes privacy very seriously and all orders arrive discretely packaged with the company name appearing as Sawhorse Enterprises. This goes for credit card processing as well, purchases are listed as general with the Sawhorse name being listed, not MyPleasure.com. There are a ton of adult sites that carry similar products some are even a few dollars less but are you really willing to sacrifice your privacy to save a couple bucks? Thats the way I look at it
and if you are a privacy freak like me, you will really appreciate their billing, packaging and shipping methods.
If you are new to this type of shopping experience, the best place to start is the Shopping Guide index that lists all of the most common products that people are looking for
some of them include lubricants, couples toy guide, vibrators and several interactive sections that will allow you to pick and choose from menus to show you the best results. So, lets get this out of the way right now
feel free to giggle as much as you want
this is a site that sells sexual aids. I always considered myself extremely open sexually and knowledgeable to adult items but after browsing the site for hours and more than a few orders, I have to say that I am continually learning new things about sexual devices. Almost all of the items they carry at the site are shown with a full color photo that can be enlarged, in depth description, dimensions, price and availability. There are also customer reviews of items however it seems that some people are way too shy to review some of them. These sections are a great resource since they offer you first hand information of how something works, feels or who its best designed for.
I would go into elaborate detail about some of the more interesting items they sell but the pesky little Epinions content filter will, without a doubt, kick this review to the curb in a heartbeat. Suffice it to say that if you have ever wanted an adult toy, this is the site to check first. And before you even ask, yes there are toys for women, men and couples. Outside of the toys there are also books, games, massage oils, penile pumps, condoms, adult adventure kits and more. The index breaks things down into easy to navigate sections and if you get lost at any time, just click the MyPleasure on the top left side of the page to go to the main section. If thats not enough, you can also treat that someone special to a gift certificate in denominations from $10.00 to $100.00. The perfect gift for the person who thinks they have everything
chances are that if they have even the least bit of a naughty side, that gift certificate will be put to good use. You can choose from a standard certificate mailed to them or one that arrives via email with easy to follow redemption instructions.
Even though the content filter may prevent me from getting into steamy detail about some of the best products, that doesnt mean I cant get verbose about some of the items that Ive purchased. I was a little disappointed that they didnt carry any of the upscale Pyrex toys but this is something that is considered an extreme fetish to most people since the price usually puts it out of reach of most peoples budgets. One of my prized purchases from the site isnt the least bit kinky .. its not every something that could be considered sexual in nature unless used in some type of role playing. So what am I talking about? A little thing called Blind Seduction - so get your minds out of the gutter for thirty seconds ok? Its an eye mask that blocks out every single ray of light and its something that I use every single day. I have extreme insomnia so I sleep when I can and if that means at two in the afternoon, no matter how many blankets I put over the window its still not dark enough. When I saw this at the site I figured that Id give it a try; others that were similar were either comfortable but did nothing to block out light or felt like I was wearing some extreme bondage device that while it blocked out light also left some wicked and highly embarrassing red marks on my face.
Most sites that carry adult related items tend to present things in a slightly trashy manner or feature adult banners for porn sites, escort services or those 976 chat lines. Youll get none of that here its sort of like filth light all the naughty items without all the garbage. I am continually impressed with the items that they stock, the availability of the items and the background information that is provided. Customer reviews are available but, in all honesty, they are few and far between. If you run a website you can check out their affiliate program and the refer a friend program allows everyone to join in the fun. If you enjoy taking a walk on the wildside, you can check out some of their hostess packages perfect for bachelorette parties or honeymoon gift baskets. Be it something that straps on, buckles, slides into the most erotic of places, gets used as a stimulator or just used as a subtle hint
chances are MyPleasure.com has it in stock. If you dont see something, call their toll free customer service line; if they dont have it I am sure theyll be able to offer you more than a few suggestions for suitable replacements.
The site isnt just about selling adult wares, no; they also have an extensive database of educational material available to those over the age of 18. I was extremely impressed with this section of the site and recommend it to anyone that is looking to expand their sexual awareness, interesting in exploring other facets erotic adventures or just simply want to find something to spice up their relationship. Some of the topics include anal sex, fetishes, oral sex, massage and an extensive sex toy guide. While some of these listings may make you slightly uncomfortable, dont be afraid to explore them. You are in the privacy of your own home, no one is watching you and if you get stuck on any of the terms or phrases, the sex glossary is available. This is one of the main reasons that I recommend this site to people they truly care about the erotic side of sex and provide thousands of pages of information so people can walk away from the site knowing about the products and practices without having to deal with someone in a face to face environment. In addition to all of the sexually related topics that are available, there are also those that deal with diseases, human anatomy and dating.
MyPleasure accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express and the Discover Card for payments. If you dont have one of these or are a little too paranoid to use your credit card to order online, you can also pay with a personal check or money order. You will have to wait for your check or money order to clear before your order is shipped and you can check the status of it online or by calling the toll free customer service number. Ive used both MasterCard and Visa at the site and never had any trouble with verification, being charged and amount different from my shopping cart total or any type of double billing. I really like the fact that they discretely bill your card as Sawhorse Enterprises, this is a great selling point for the site for those who have prying eyes or a spouse that has access to the credit card statements.

In addition to calling the toll free number for questions, orders or other concerns, you can use the on site contact form that allows you to directly contact the appropriate department. This will speed up the reply time but in all honesty, any time I sent in an email I received a reply within 12 24 hours, not bad at all in my opinion. The people working the phones are stealer and have a great sense of humor, it seems that nothing shocks them so if you have any intimate questions about products, they are more than willing to help you out with suggestions or information. From this help section you can also edit your email preferences, request a catalog, leave comments or feedback, inquire about the status of a return and wholesale pricing.
Items purchased at the site come with a thirty day return period from the date of delivery. If you arent satisfied with it, simply call, email or use the on site form to request an RMA [return merchandise authorization] number to ensure a speedy exchange or refund. I havent has to make a return however from what they say at the site, the normal turn around time for exchanges is about three days from the time they receive your package. If you have never done a return to an online store and are a little leery about the process, call the customer service number for assistance. While they offer you a 30 day time frame to make a return, they also offer a one year return period on certain defective items that the Epinions content filter prohibits me from listing.
Most orders are shipped out using Federal Express with several options available from Ground to the expedited Two Day and Overnight services. International shipments are no problem for them and thats something that I can say from experience. I purchased several items for friends overseas and they all arrived a few days ahead of schedule. Since the company is located in San Francisco, anything that is shipped from their warehouse usually arrives in about three days but that isnt always the case. If you are pressed for an item and need it quick, make sure you call their customer service number to ensure that the item arrives on time. The rates arent that bad; the basic shipping fee is $6.95 for anything up to $25.00 and the max you will pay is $12.95 for anything $125.01 or more. These are for Ground delivery, other options will cost you more but if you need something you need it, most usually isnt an issue in these cases.
The Bottom Line
With so many similar sites peddling their wares to the timid and shy, I have to say this MyPleasure is one of the best out there. They truly care about the customer and strive to make sure that every order goes off without a hitch. If privacy is something that you value, then look no further than this site for your adult erotic needs. They have everything for heterosexual and homosexual lifestyles as well as a plethora of items designed just for couples and if you are into the kinkier things in life, a small but impressive bondage section. If product selection and variety arent enough, the customer service team is outstanding and they strive to make sure that every customer is treated with respect.
thanks for the visit!
