NEW YORK — The Pleasure Chest has signed on as official sex education sponsor for Sex Expo New York 2017, to be held Sept. 23-24 at the Brooklyn Expo Center.

“We’re excited to once again be curating and sponsoring the educational component of the Sex Expo,” said Sarah Tomchesson, head of business operations for the adult retail chain. “The Pleasure Chest believes that pleasure-based education is integral to a healthy and fulfilling sex life, which is why we’ve partnered with some of the country’s top sex educators to present workshops on a variety of topics. We’ve assembled a diverse selection of educators, authors and speakers to discuss a wide range of subjects, kinks, communities and more.”

The Pleasure Chest’s booth at Sex Expo New York will feature products from Jimmyjane, Fun Factory and other pleasure product brands it carries.

“We’ll be exhibiting some of our top-of-the-line luxury toys from our partners as well as those favored by our educators,” Tomchesson said. “Our goal is always to create an elegant, welcoming space where folks feel comfortable to shop, explore and feel out the toys for themselves. We like to think of our booth as a mini-version of our boutique. We’ll be featuring toys from partners like Fun Factory, Jimmyjane, LELO and We-Vibe as well as our signature kits featuring our favorite toy combinations and pairings.”

In early March, organizers for the Sexual Health Expo (SHE) announced that the bicoastal, biannual event was rebranding as Sex Expo — and Sex Expo New York 2017 will be its first East Coast show since the rebranding. The Pleasure Chest was the official sex education sponsor for SHE L.A. 2017, which took place at the California Market Center in Downtown Los Angeles in early February.

“This will be The Pleasure Chest’s third year and sixth show curating the educational content for the Sex Expo, and we’re proud of this event and our partnership,” Tomchesson said. “Each year, the Expo just gets better and better, and we look forward to many more in the future.”

Founded in 1971, The Pleasure Chest is one of the oldest adult retail chains in the United States and has brick-and-mortar stores in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Chicago. The Pleasure Chest, in recent years, has expanded into e-commerce with online sales at ThePleasureChest.com — and the chain carries a wide variety of products, ranging from vibrators, dildos, BDSM toys, condoms and lubricants to adult DVDs and sex education books.

The Brooklyn Expo Center is located at 72 Noble St., Brooklyn, N.Y. 11222 in the Greenpoint area and is within walking distance of the MTA’s Greenpoint Ave. subway station. To reach the Brooklyn Expo Center from Manhattan, take the G Train.
