What Sets MALS Apart

“Sex shop” represents an uncomfortable place to many people. It shouldn’t bring such a negative image to mind but for a good amount of people, it does. The image is a creepy old man behind the counter and a scratchy soundtrack playing from a speaker propped up behind a rack of cheesy cop costumes. Believe it, however, when I tell you that there is a huge difference between a sex shop and a sex boutique. A sex shop, yes, will usually contain a strange old man selling out-of-date FleshLights but a boutique… A boutique is the kind of shop that you want to visit and that’s the kind of shop that MALS is.

With brightly lit shelves, a huge selection of adult toys, and a staggering amount of lingerie, Manchester Adult Lifestyles will exceed your expectations of what an adult store should be like. There are so many products to choose from, you can get lost trying to find the toy that suits you best. Don’t worry, the staff will be happy to assist you in finding the perfect toy/outfit/shoes/etc to the best of their abilities. With so many products, we understand that it can be a little overwhelming, especially for those that are new to the world of adult toys. Don’t be afraid to ask an employee for help and remember, there are absolutely no silly questions.

 

Can’t seem to find what you’re looking for on the shelves? Not to worry. We want to make sure our clients are taken care of and can custom order items for you if you’re looking for something specific! This isn’t limited to toys; we can obtain all sorts of shoes, lubes, outfits, dancer poles; the list goes on and on. If you’re having trouble finding something or if you have a certain product that you love and have trouble finding, we

invite you to come speak with our highly educated staff so we can get you the things that you deserve!

Buying sex toys doesn’t have to be a weird experience. At Manchester Adult Lifestyles, you’ll be in a comfortable environment with knowledgeable staff. Not everyone is super comfortable talking

about sex, especially with strangers but don’t be afraid to try new things because you think all adult stores are the same. Come in and see for yourself! What sets MALS apart from other shops? We genuinely care about your well being and our goal isn’t just to sell you a toy or an outfit but the best toy or the best outfit that will make you (and your partner) happy that you chose us as your sex boutique!

Now that winter is coming, we have implemented our sales again to bring you even better prices in order to provide some smiles in the dreariness of winter! Starting us off this week is the Back To School Sale; all shoes, toys, and lingerie with a BLUE sticker is 25% off so head on down to 179 Elm St to check out what we have available!

Pride

Join Manchester Adult Life Styles in celebrating pride month this June (and July)! For those of you not familiar, pride is a month long celebration of the LGBTQ community. Pride month is an important time to highlight the violence and discrimination against the LGBTQ community and it is about being proud of who you are, no matter what sexual orientation you identify as.

 

Pride month started in 1969 after riots in Manhattan ensued for days when police tried to shut down a gay club. In the 60’s being openly gay or queer was considered heinous and disgusting. If the public found out about someone who was gay they would either lock them in a mental institution and/or publicly terrorize and humiliate them. This would also go for any club owners who allowed their space to become LGBTQ friendly. When police tried to shut down The Stonewall Inn in Manhattan, NY protests erupted, gaining support from each other to stand up for LGBTQ rights and put an end to discrimination. The first Pride day was called the Christopher Street Liberation Day and was scheduled to be held the last Saturday of June every year. Since then it has grown to be a month long event.

 

Pride is celebrated all over the world this month, bringing people together from all across the social, sexual, and gender spectrums. Manchester Adult Life Styles stands in solidarity with the LGBTQ community and we welcome all walks of life, all year long. Be PROUD of who you are and never be afraid to show your true colors!

 

Celebrate Pride month with some of our rainbow products!

BDSM 101: Safe, Sane, and Consensual

I’m sure you have heard about the best seller “BDSM” book, Fifty Shades of Grey by now. It was such a hit that Hollywood made a movie version of the book which was released in February of 2015 and Fifty Shades Darker, the second book to the trilogy in February of 2017. Unfortunately as popular as it is, the book is in no way an accurate representation of the BDSM community or safe BDSM practices. Here is what real BDSM looks like:

BDSM stands for Bondage, Discipline/Domination, Submission, and Masochism. At its core, it’s all about finding pleasure in pain and playing with different social roles in a sexual setting. What makes BDSM different from abuse is that it is CONSENSUAL. There are three “pillars” if you will, that make up BDSM:

  • Safe- BDSM is always safe and participants plan at length to make sure everyone involved is physically, emotionally and sexually safe, by using STI protection and good communication.
  • Sane- There must be thorough and clear communication before, during, and after “play”. All parties must be able to consent, not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol when consent is given.
  • Consensual- Everyone involved in a scene must discuss their boundaries, limitations and their plan for play. Create a safe word so that play can be stopped if someone becomes uncomfortable. Remember without consent, BDSM is ABUSE!

After care is also an important part of BDSM. Both dominants and submissives need time to talk to each other and make sure everyone is ok. Take your time to make sure everyone is comfortable with what happened during play and even follow up a few days after. Here is a great video that explains the essentials of BDSM- Laci Green BDSM 101.

Now for all you kinksters that are either well acquainted with BDSM or are just starting to explore this counter-culture, Manchester Adult Life Styles is prepared to meet all of your BDSM supply needs. Come stop by our shop or visit our website to see our vast collection of different “tools of the trade” and feel free to talk to one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members for advice and suggestions on our products.

Rolling Paper Varieties

Rolling your own cigarettes is a time honored tradition. It allows you to really customize what you are smoking by choosing your own tobacco and paper to roll it in. There are a few different options for rolling papers that can affect taste, ease of rolling, and your health.

  • Cigarillo or Blunt Wraps: These types of papers are much thicker than any other because the paper is made with tobacco. They can be flavored, or unflavored. With these papers you are getting much more tobacco and by-products into your smoke which will affect the taste of whatever tobacco you choose to fill them with. We carry Juicy Jay and Zig-Zag brand blunt papers.
  • Wood pulp: Rolling papers that are made from wood pulp are popular because they are easy to find and roll with. They can come in flavored or unflavored varieties. They are thinner than blunt wraps but still have enough meat to roll a fatty. You can find Zig-Zag brand papers in our shop, made from wood pulp.
  • Hemp: Hemp rolling papers are made with industrial hemp. They have an earthier flavor and some say they are healthier to smoke with because there is very little by-product when burnt. We carry Raw brand products such as rolling papers, filters and cones. Juicy Jay brand rolling papers are also available in a variety of flavors.
  • Rice: Rice papers are extremely thin, making little to no ash when smoked. There is basically no flavor which allows the tobacco that you roll with to really shine. Fans of rice paper claim that it is one of the healthiest alternatives because it is so thin and very little is actually smoked. You can find Elements brand rice papers at Manchester Adult Life Styles.

Different rolling papers suit different needs and smoking preferences. Pick up a pack of each kind at Manchester Adult Life Styles and try them all out!

Self Defense

Ladies, we have all had the unfortunate experience of going to your car at night after work and feeling a little anxious that there’s a creep lurking around the corner. Or even being home alone at night; a prime target for a break-in. Not everyone can or wants to carry a firearm, as they can be expensive and require regular cleanings. There are many self-defense options to make you feel safer and more in control in case you have to face an ugly situation.

Manchester Adult Life Styles believes in keeping you safe no matter the cost. Getting home safely is the #1 goal and we have plenty of products to achieve that.

  • Pepper Spray: We carry a few varieties including a spray, gel and foam.
  • Knuckle Key Chains: These chains are kept on your car keys and they are designed to be worn like a sort of ring to replace the old keys-between-your-knuckles trick. These are sharp, solid metal that will deter any sketchball from messing around.
  • Impact Batons: Impact batons are extendable metal staffs that are designed for personal safety. Our batons range in size from 16” to 21”. For maximum effectiveness, look for self-defense training classes that include batons.
  • Tasers and Stun Guns: A taser is another classic self defense tool that is effective, easy to use and non-lethal by incapacitating your target with an electrical shock. We also carry a “Zap cane” for elderly folks.

Although these products are of high quality and effective, the best practice for your own safety is to find local self-defense courses that teach you how to use these kinds of tools properly. Contact your local police department or self-defense school for information on classes. Here is a great article about prevention and hand-to-hand combat techniques: Basic Self-Defense Moves Anyone Can Do. Come visit Manchester Adult Life Styles today to pick up your newest self-defense tool!

Feeling Sexy

During the winter months with the cold, dry air and the bulky clothes, it can make a person feel rather un-sexy. February has got to be the worst month for Valentine’s day because the weather is just so unwelcoming. The sun is barely on, so how do you expect me to be turned on?! The one good thing about winter is that it’s a great time for some naughty indoor activities. Here are a few ways to feel sexy for Valentine’s Day:

  1. Pamper yourself! Take a long, hot bath with a glass of wine and some soothing music. It is super relaxing and taking some “me” time for personal grooming is a great indoor activity when the weather is frightful. Light this Cherry Edible Massage Oil Candle during a soothing bath and then moisturize your skin after!
  2. Pick out some new tantalizing lingerie. Nothing makes a woman feel sexier than a pair of high heels and a g-string. Not your style? No worries, Manchester Adult Lifestyles has tons of lingerie from sweet babydoll teddies to glamorous robes in many sizes, including plus size. Don’t forget to grab some accessories like thigh highs or gloves!
  3. Practice some more self-love! The winter blues have you down? Cuddle up in bed and spend some quality solo time with a new vibrator. This Miracle Massager promises to steam up those chilly nights.
  4. Try something new between the sheets. Keep your love life fresh and give some thought to trying something new. Experiment with some anal play to keep things spiced up during a winter storm! Give this Anal Starter Kit a try, it comes in three different sizes to start off slow and is easy to wash.

 

The doldrums of winter don’t have to be spent shivering. Go online to www.manchesteradultlifestyles.com or visit our shop at 179 Elm Street in Manchester, New Hampshire to start feeling sexy for your Valentine!

The Multiple Benefits Of Prostate Massage

It is a known fact that women are able to have multiple, long lasting orgasms in one night. It’s a fact that makes some men jealous. Why can’t men feel that level of pleasure as well? Well, I have news for you, not only is it possible, but it’s also very healthy.

The prostate is a gland that sits at the base of the penis, just under the bladder. It is about the size of a walnut and it stores semen. When it is massaged, the gland is cleaned out of any old material that might be lingering. Without regular massage, bacteria can build up leading to a number of health issues.

The benefits of massaging your prostate is a long list. Here are the top 5 most common reasons why you should stimulate your “P-Spot” on the reg.

  1. 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Massage can greatly reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
  2. If you struggle with erectile dysfunction, this can help and even in some cases eliminate medication.

  3. It can help reduce or get rid of painful ejaculation.
  4. Increase urine flow. If the prostate gets too swollen, it can eventually cut off urine flow which would lead to a rush to the ER.
  5. Long lasting, and intense orgasms. This is probably the most common reason why prostate massage has become more popular. There are many different kinds of prostate massager toys on the market to spice it up in the bedroom.

Here is a handy link that explains exactly how to massage the prostate: How to Stimulate The Prostate

Top Ten Benefits Of Self-Love

Masturbation is not only a great way to have fun and learn about what turns you on, but it is also a very healthy habit. Previously touted as something dirty and unspoken of, researchers are finding how beneficial regular masturbation can be for both males and females.

10 Function Tantric Chakra Vibe
10 Function Tantric Chakra Vibe
  1. Nature’s #1 stress buster. Orgasms release a whole host of happy chemicals in the brain that reduces cortisol, the stress hormone. Your body will flood itself with dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin leaving you and your body relaxed.
  2. Self-love spices up your sex life. When you incorporate masturbation into a regular routine you are constantly thinking about sex more often. This pumps testosterone (in males and females) into your system, priming you for your next duo. Your body will be more physically ready, but your mind will be too; thinking about all those naughty scenarios during solo sessions might just inspire you to change things up in the bedroom with your partner.
  3. For guys, whippin’ off a batch of lil’ swimmers more often will lead to a healthier sperm count and less chance for the DNA to

    be copied incorrectly when the body produces semen.

  4. Spanking the monkey on the reg has shown to lessen the chance of developing cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes. This is partially due to the increased blood flow and reduction of stress hormones.
  5. Ladies, petting your kitty may help with your body image. By learning more about your sexuality and body, masturbation will assist in learning about what turns you on. This leads to confidence in the bedroom and an over all ego-boost.
  6. As mentioned above, self love is relaxing to the body. This reduction in stress can improve sleep quality dramatically.
  7. For women, masturbating during menstrual cycles can alleviate cramps and boost your mood.
  8. Orgasms are a wonderful part of life; the more you play that flute, the better you are at having and

    controlling orgasms.

  9. Masturbation can also be a form of physical therapy for women. Frequent personal attention can help to strengthen pelvic, and anal muscles reducing the risk of bladder leakage and uterine prolapse.
  10. Finally, when you are all by yourself and there’s no one around to jump your bones, masturbating is a great way to relieve sexual tension. Whether you use toys or just a hand or two, you can always count on yourself to get the job done.

Glass Vs. Wood Vs. Metal Pipes

There are so many different kinds of pipes out there nowadays. Creative smokers will make pipes out of anything, including fruit and even a hot dog! (Yes, that would probably taste disgusting. I wouldn’t recommend making a hot dog pipe….) There are a few tried and true options for the best smoking experience; you can use pipes made from glass, wood or metal. In this post we will discover what the pros and cons of using each type of pipe are.

Glass  is probably the most widely used method seeing as it is easy to make and is very affordable. Here are the pros and cons to this type of pipe:

  • Pros: Readily available, inexpensive, easy to clean, does not disrupt the flavor of  tobacco, comes in really cool colors and shapes for every style, can be used to make a variety of different types such as water pipes and one hitters. The glass pipes made today are pretty strong and most will survive a minor drop.
  • Cons: Breakable if dropped or hit too hard, most are not very discreet with size and color, difficult to travel with due to fragility and size.

 

Wood  is not as popular but does have pros over glass pipes:

  • Pros: Generally made to be very small and discreet, some are fold-able for easy traveling, potentially will alter the flavor of the tobacco in a positive way, unique designs that make cool gifts, sometimes accompanied with a mini stash spot too.
  • Cons: Not easy to clean, will wear with use, will potentially alter the flavor of the tobacco, tend to be small, not very common to find for purchase.

 

Metal  is an inexpensive, easy to find option that gets the job done:

  • Pros: Cheap, easy to find, discreet shape and size, many come with an “oven” on top to keep the matter burning, comes in various colors and shapes, can be taken apart which makes it easy to clean.
  • Cons: Generally small bowl sizes, can get really hot when smoking and cause potential for burns, does not last quite as long as glass or wood, flavors the tobacco sometimes unpleasantly, hits can be harsher because metal heats up quickly and holds onto the heat.

Manchester Adult Life Styles has many different options for glass, wood or metal pieces. We also carry tools and solutions to clean all kinds of devices. Come into our shop today at 179 Elm Street, Manchester, NH 03101 and talk with one of our friendly staff members to pick out a piece that suits your needs.
