Pleasure Chest to Host Variety of Workshops at Sex Expo NY

NEW YORK — The Pleasure Chest will be returning to Sex Expo New York this year to host workshops featuring a variety of educators and sexual wellness experts. In addition, the 47-year-old adult retail chain will feature pleasure products from major brands in its booth.

Sex Expo New York 2018, presented by premier camming platform Chaturbate, will be held the weekend of Sept. 22-23 at the Brooklyn Expo Center and includes showcases from top pleasure product manufacturers.

“We are so excited to be coming back for another year at Sex Expo,” said Ryan DiMartino, outreach manager for The Pleasure Chest’s store in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. “At the heart of our mission is supporting our community’s sexual growth and exploration by pioneering a sex-positive culture, with an emphasis on education, enjoyment and inclusivity. So, it should come as no surprise that we’ll be bringing free workshop programming to Sex Expo once again.”

DiMartino added, “This year, our class offerings will be streamlined and presented on the main stage, which is exciting in the way that it allows all attendees access to the information regardless of whether or not they are comfortable enough to step into the classroom setting. Specific topics will be announced soon, but you can expect a little something for everyone. Bondage, spanking, booty basics, G-spotting and, of course, the beloved blowjob workshop were just a few of the PleasurEd offerings last year.”

The Pleasure Chest, founded in 1971, also features brick-and-mortar stores in Los Angeles and Chicago.

“It’s rare that so many folks from different facets of the sex industry get to work closely together, and we believe this inclusion is one of the distinguishing features of Sex Expo,” DiMartino said. “While many businesses build reputations and legacies that may seem to manifest identities in their own right, the core of every business — at the end of the day — is the people behind it. The Pleasure Chest is proudly staffed by folks who have come to us from within the sex industry, LGBTQ folks, kinky folks — a diversity of experiences that strengthens our knowledge base and enriches the quality of our offerings.”

DiMartino added, “In our booth, not only will you find a vast array of products, but a team of specialists who know how to make them meet different needs — and as always, an emphasis on information for the care of toys and bodies. Come for the pins and paddles, stay for the tips and tricks, and be sure to leave with a calendar so you can keep the learning going with our weekly free in-store workshops.”

The Brooklyn Expo Center is located at 72 Noble St. in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint area and is within walking distance of the MTA’s Greenpoint Avenue subway station, which is served by the G Train.
