MALS On FetLife

Blog By M. Mitera

Even though it’s the year 2018, some things are still a little too… adult for some platforms of social media. It’s understandable. Some people are more vanilla than others and we have to respect that. But just because some people don’t want to see what we sell doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be able to promote it!

Intro To Shibari

Blog By M. Mitera

In the year 2018, people aren’t as vanilla as they used to be. With the help of the internet, kinks have made themselves very well known over the years. These days, people aren’t as ashamed to broadcast their preferences as they were before. One of the more commonly found kinks among sexually active individuals is the practice of Japanese rope bondage. This practice is extremely popular in the BDSM communities and is a very connecting experience, bringing the model and the person tying very close together.

Japanese rope bondage is known as “kinbaku” or “shibari”. In the west, the term “shibari” is much more common, although it doesn’t exactly mean the same thing as “kinbaku”. Kinbaku (“tight binding”) carries a traditional Japanese meaning. While on one hand, shibari refers to a generalization of tying, kinbaku refers to tying and binding in a sexual sense. Kinbaku is bondage art, where shibari is technically just tying. Some experts in the BDSM community consider kinbaku to be tying sessions with a strong emotional connection between the rigger and model.

Even though the term “shibari” doesn’t carry the deep meaning with it, the word is becoming more and more popular across the world. Even in Japan, the word shibari is being used more and more to describe the experience of Japanese rope play. However, the word is still considered by some to be a wrong Western Japanism and doesn’t convey the sexual context of kinbaku.

This particular style of bondage pays special attention to the way the rope looks on the model, as well as the position assumed during the tying. Sometimes, uncomfortable positions are tied on purpose to provide an aesthetic look for the person doing the tying. Traditional Japanese bondage uses specific forms and aesthetic rules to spotlight the model’s position. The most important ties in the traditional Japanese bondage play are the Ushiro Takatekote, which is an arm box tie of sorts as well as the Ebi (“shrimp”), which was originally designed as a torture tie.

This kind of play is on the rise and people are becoming more and more apt to trying it. The bond between a model and the person rigging the rope can be so extreme. It is highly recommended that you give this act a try with your partner or even by yourself (there are some wonderful ties that you can do alone that don’t require a partner’s help! These are great for practice!). Be on the lookout for more rope play blogs as we delve deeper in to this amazing act! Thanks for reading!

The Appeal Of BDSM

Blog By M. Mitera

With many things being overdone, sex these days has begun to change. People are more apt to explore, constantly looking for new ways to enjoy themselves. The media has helped this trend of evolving sex by heavily promoting BSDM (standing for Bondage, Domination, Submission, and Masochism). This practice may seem alien and violent to some, definitely not something many would consider “normal”. But those who are involved with BDSM are able to find a new sense of freedom, independence, and confidence. Historically, those who were interested in BDSM were considered to have a medical illness. Because of the initial impression of pain, people had a negative response. Even though there were those who weren’t feeling the whips and chains idea of sex, curiosity and the primal instincts of humans took over.

We’ve already told you what BDSM stands for. But let’s break it down a little more so you can kind of understand the appeal a little bit more. The B stands for bondage, which involves one partner tying up the other with something like rope, chains, or other restraints. D stands for domination. This means one partner exaggerates the power they have over the other. Domination has a lot to do with the relationship between a slave and a master. S is for submission and sadism. While dominants enjoy having power over others, subs enjoy feeling powerless. In this role, the sub is usually receiving punishments by the dom. Finally, the M is for masochism. This is closely related to sadism except this is the submissive’s enjoyment of the pain and humiliation during play. It’s these aspects that make BDSM so appealing… The shift of power in roles can be a very pleasurable experience.

Practicing BDSM provides a new sense of meaning and independence. It allows people to take on a different persona than the one that they live every day. Those who get turned on by fantasy play will also love trying out BDSM, as it provides a stage to an ever changing performance. Many couples even reported that their feelings of trust and intimacy were deeper after practicing BDSM. By having to put your safety in the hands of another, the relationship grows much stronger.

BDSM allows people to do things that they wouldn’t normally be able to do in a safe environment. The aspect of role playing is extremely appealing to some. Being able to take on a different persona can be a huge turn on for some. It’s important to be open minded if your partner decides to bring this up to you as something that they’re in to. While it may seem a bit intense at first, the experience is one that is definitely worth having. So don’t knock it until you try it! For those interested in getting in to the BDSM scene, Manchester Adult Lifestyles has a ton of BDSM related toys so head on in to the shop and check it out!

Pounds Glass by Snoop Dogg

Blog By M. Mitera

By now, almost everyone is familiar with Snoop Dogg, the rapper/actor/activist. He is heavily involved in the glass industry and has made sure to leave his mark. He has been rolling out a line of new glass pieces (five, to be exact). These beauties are inspired by ships and aptly named after them. The line includes pieces for concentrate as well as flower so the line offers something for everyone.

Snoop got in to business with Famous Brandz in order to make these pieces. There are five different styles; the Battleship, Starship, Rocketship, Mothership, and Spaceship. Each piece is hand made and comes with a price tag that will hopefully appeal to consumers of any age. So what’s the difference between the pieces? Let us explain…

The Battleship is great for dry or concentrates. It stands at 12.5″ tall and is available in black, white, clear, and black. The piece delivers smooth hits and has a heavy base, making it great for those who might be slightly clumsy sometimes. With a thick mouthpiece for maximum suction, this piece is sure to steamroll any who are brave enough to give it a whirl.

Out of the Pounds line, the Mothership stands at 13″ tall, the tallest of the five. Built with a barrel and percolator, those who use this dry piece will realize their smoke is much cooler. Because of the way the percolators are set up, the Mothership delivers a smooth experience that is far less harsh on the lungs than other pieces. And just like the Battleship, this piece comes in a variety of colors including white, black, clear, and blue.

Shaped almost exactly like the item it’s named after, the Rocketship is features a sloped in lip at the top. This design allows the user to get the maximum use from the piece without having to worry. The down-stem of the piece is diffused, providing some seriously smooth rips. Take your pick of colors from white, black, clear, or orange!

Not everyone is in the market for a piece that’s over a foot tall and that’s where the Starship comes in. This little ripper is only 6.1″ tall and that makes it perfect for a traveling companion. Made for dry herbs only, the Starship would be a great beginning piece or just something small and light to bring with you on a trip! The Starship, like the others, is available in a plethora of different colors, including purple!

The smallest of the Pounds family is the Spaceship. It’s a whopping 6″ tall and can be bought in green, clear, white, and black. Able to be used for both dry herb and concentrates, the Spaceship features a ruffled percolator. This design breaks down smoke particles and provides the user with a smoother, less hot hit. Definitely great for beginners or someone who simply doesn’t need a whole lot to be happy!

If you’re searching for a Pounds piece, look no further than Manchester Adult Lifestyles. We carry the entire line and can always send out for a custom order if you’re looking for one specific color. These American made, hand blown pieces are sure to make an excellent addition to your current glass collection! Stop by and check them out!

Juul Pods At MALS

Blog By M. Mitera

These days, it seems like many people are attempting to tear themselves away from smoking cigarettes and switching to electronic devices. With electronic cigarettes, people can smoke different flavors in the form of a vapor rather than inhaling smoke from a cigarette. There is less smell, less trash, and (some will say) a lesser impact on one’s health. Recently, one particular e-cig has caught the attention of many consumers looking to toss their cigarettes out.

The Juul (developed and made by the same people who make Pax vaporizers) is a small rechargeable device that’s about the size of your pointer finger. It takes pods, small little chambers full of different flavored liquid (mint, creme brulee, fruit, menthol, cucumber, and mango) and each

pod is equal to one full pack of cigarettes. Since the liquid is concentrated though, the user doesn’t need as many puffs to get the nicotine feeling. Each device also comes with a one year warranty and you can get the starter kit which includes four different flavored pods, a charger, and the Juul device itself for just $55 here at MALS!

Being extremely popular with the younger generations, the Juul has become a must have for many between the age of 18 and 25. Recently, the prices of the Juul devices started to rise. Many stores have them for sale for more than $20 for a pack of four pods and the devices sell for upwards of $70. Here at MALS, we understand that money isn’t easy to come by and we’ve made sure to keep our prices low! Four-packs of pods are only $16! That means that each pod only costs you $4, instead of a pack of cigarettes costing you $7.

So not only does a Juul taste better but it costs less than cigarettes. If you’ve been on the hunt for one of these sought after e-cigs, you can find them at Manchester Adult Lifestyles for the absolute cheapest price around. We won’t be raising our prices any time soon either. We understand the struggle of getting enough money together to pay bills and we know that it’s still important to treat yourself. So when you’re in need of a Juul device or some pods, you know where to find us (at 179 Elm St in Manchester, NH in case you didn’t know).

Sex Furniture & the Benefits

Blog By M. Mitera

If you’ve had any sort of adventurous sex, chances are high that you’ve used a piece of furniture in your house to help in the act. Chairs, benches, tables, washing machines, etc. All of these things can make great additions to play time. But these items aren’t designed for such roughhousing and can take some damage in certain situations. Also, they can be somewhat uncomfortable. But thankfully, toy companies understand the struggle of finding a comfortable piece of furniture to bang on. There are plenty of options out there for sex-oriented furniture and there are some surprising benefits to using them as well!

Sex furniture is a vague term and covers a wide variety of extra goodies that you can add to your sex life. From sex swings to dance poles, these items are sure to spice things up. Of course, you need to remember that your lifestyle dictates the kind of sex furniture that you have laying around. If you’re someone who likes to have company over (and not always in a sexual way), you probably don’t want a sex swing hanging out of the ceiling of your living room when the neighbors come over for dinner. Just remember that when picking out your new toy. While some toys are very sly and can be hidden around the house, some are very apparent. It’s a good idea to plan out what toys will go where before buying them so you can keep your kinky side on the down low.

One of the most popular pieces of sex furniture are the swings. People love sex swings. They are extremely fun and easy to assemble. They allow for added mobility that some people have trouble achieving. Being able to rotate your partner and switch positions almost instantly is great for those who find it difficult to be on their knees for long periods of time. The swings also give you a much larger range of motion, making things much more pleasurable for both parties! We have numerous styles of sex swings at MALS so definitely stop by to check them out! Even if you’re not ready for a swing, we have interesting additions to a regular mattress that will keep your partner in place, like the Bed Bondage Restraint Kit!

The sex machines are another type of erotic furniture. These machines make things really interesting, some of which even come equipped with cell phone holders as well as a “him” and “her” side. Currently, MALS has the Couple’s Power Banger in stock. This epic machine is for both parties, is lightweight, and easy to use. The best part about these power bangers? Even though they are a bit bigger, they are easily hidden in a closet or under a bed. Take them out when needed and none of your visitors will even know that you have an incredible banging machine stashed away.

Dance poles are geared more towards those who enjoy watching instead of participating. The good thing about the poles is that they can be used for larger audiences. So okay, maybe some people don’t want their visitors to see their kinky side but others really enjoy involving multiple people. If this sounds like something you and your sexually charged friends would enjoy, a dance pole can not only provide entertainment but it’s also a great workout! We currently have two poles in stock right now; the Power Pole and the Fantasy Series Dance Pole. The Fantasy Series comes complete with a spinning light that will only increase the mood and the Power Pole comes with instructions on how to get the best (and sexiest) workout possible!

There are so many different kinds of sex furniture! And lucky for you, we can order almost anything you can think of and have it delivered right to our shop. We even got in a vibrating chair that would be perfect for some couple’s “time out” style play! If you haven’t stopped by to check out the selection here at MALS, you’re absolutely missing out. Whether you’re looking for power bangers or dance poles or something in between, chances are we have it!
