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!

Online Shopping At MALS

For a lot of people, it’s easier to shop online than go to the store. And sometimes, it’s not only easier but preferred. Not everyone is comfortable coming in and buying some of the things that they would like to buy. Continue reading

Top Three Reasons Women Should Know Self Defense

Blog By M. Mitera

It’s wishful thinking to imagine a world where people don’t have to constantly look over their shoulders to make sure no one is following them. Unfortunately, it is mostly women who deal with the fear of going out in to the world alone. In 2014, the Criminal Victimization Board found that US residents over the age of 12 have experienced 5.4 million violent victimizations. This includes but isn’t limited to rape or sexual assault, simple assault, and aggravated assault. Women need to be more educated in how to protect themselves from an assailant and here are the top three reasons why.

In learning self defense, a woman will be able to not only protect herself but her family if necessary. Although men are supposedly the stronger sex, martial arts such as Bujustu teach those involved to fend of an attacker and then escape, rather than staying to fight. The goal is not to continue the altercation but to get away and find help as soon as possible. Another goal is to potentially disarm an attacker that is carrying a weapon. Most martial arts programs show students how to obtain a weapon from an attacker and use it to their advantage or at least to escape. While learning self defense doesn’t 100% assure your safety, this skill will drastically reduce the chances of you getting hurt or injured if you are attacked.

When learning self-defense, you are also taught discipline. This trait will transfer over to other parts of your life. You will begin to realize that you are a better parent, a better friend, a better worker, etc with this new found calmness. Self-defense has a lot to do with controlling breathing, staying relaxed, and to respond to situations instead of reacting to them. In the year 2018, we are surrounded by instant gratification. Self-defense doesn’t allow for this instant feeling of importance. It teaches patience and diligence, something that isn’t really taught in regular, every day life anymore. Self-defense tactics will not only help to keep you safe but will drastically improve your outlook on life, as you will constantly be working on a process that has no end.

If you’re not convinced to give some self-defense classes just yet, you should also know that learning self-defense can boost confidence. It teaches you that your life matters enough to fight for and so do the lives of your friends and families. Self-defense doesn’t care what gender you are, what your age is, or your physical strength. It will push you to be better than you ever thought you could be and this air of confidence might deter attackers in the first place. But at least you’ll know that you have the ability to defend yourself.

At MALS, we have a wide selection of self defense items available. We take our client’s safety very seriously and since we work with many people who work late in to the night, we want to make sure everyone is okay. If you have any questions about self-defense or want to look at our stock of self-defense items, just swing by the shop and let one of our associates show you! We are open seven days a week, Monday through Friday 10am-10pm, Saturday 10am to 9pm, and Sunday from 12am to 6pm!

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!

It’s NIP-Tober At MALS!

October is breast cancer awareness month! Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives? Although it is a widespread problem, it is also one of the easiest types of cancer to treat and cure. And yes, you read that right, breast cancer is becoming curable.

An important part of curing breast cancer is early detection. So giving your partner a bit of extra attention to their breasts during playtime can quite possibly save a life (not to mention turning them on like crazy). Here is a link to a tutorial on how to do a self-breast exam. It might be fun to spice it up and have your partner examine you! http://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/testing/types/self_exam/bse_steps

We at Manchester Adult Life Styles want to celebrate the strides made against breast cancer by highlighting some of our nipple toys to make monthly breast exams a little hotter. The breasts and nipples are a very sensitive part of the body. If you enjoy tugging, flicking or sucking,(whether on yourself or your partner) the nipple toys we have, will take it to the next level. We stock a couple different kinds of toys, such as nipple clamps and nipple suckers.

Our nipple clamps:
Fetish Fantasy Ltd Feather Nipple Clamps: If you are new to nipple clamps, these might be a good first purchase. Tipped in smooth rubber, the precise, hardy metal grips are completely adjustable in terms of tension. Simply twist the screw to widen or narrow their grasp. Once in place, the silky black and white feathers float dazzlingly, effortlessly hypnotizing your playmate while awakening desire and increasing sensation.
Fetish Fantasy Heavyweight Nipple Clamps: If you know that you like to be treated a little rougher, these might be the clamps for you. For intense, constant nipple stimulation, the Heavyweight Nipple Clamps are a perfect choice. These soft rubber tipped treats feature completely adjustable tension, and a weight of about 2.6 oz (73.7g) for lots of tantalizing ‘pull’ on sensitive nipples.The total stretch of the attached silver chain is about 17 inches, allowing for perfect positioning and lots of movement.
Our nipple suckers:
Nipple Suction Bulb: Gently enhance sensation and make your nipple irresistibility firm with the Nipple Bulb. This little device applies light suction to draw blood naturally into the nipples for increased sensitivity and firmness. Just place the mouth of the bulb over a nipple and squeeze to activate the suction. To keep them hard and ready for action, 4 little O rings are included, which can be placed over the tip of the bulb and slipped off and over the nipple once you’re where you want to be.
Advanced Nipple Suckers in Black: Sucking thrillingly at any particularly sensitive bit of skin, California Exotic’s nipple play collection presents the Advanced Nipple Suckers, a duo designed for simple, quick attachment and blissfully stimulating results. Naturally drawing blood to the peaks of the breasts when attached, a deliciously devious interior suction effect perks up the nipples, inspiring nearly instantaneous arousal and vastly increasing sensitivity to touch, tugs, flicks and otherwise. To attach, simply position over the desired nipple (or other nerve-ending rich external sweet spot) and gently squeeze. Upon release, the suction activates, gently yet firmly drawing skin inward. In a safe and ultra sturdy phthalate-free PVC material, the Suckers require just a rinse in warm soapy water to see them squeaky clean and ready for enjoyment

We all love tatas, boobies, breasts, titties, “the girls”, or whatever you want to call them; but we all know that the person behind those highly erogenous zones is really what counts. Turn your partner on with Manchester Adult Lifestyle’s nipple toys and pay special attention to those lovely bits, it just might save your lover’s life. As always, be sexy and be safe; Happy NIPtober!
