Pleasure Purse Review

~I received this item for free in exchange for an honest review.~

As a sex blogger and parent, I’ve come up with several ways to hide our toys and adult sex ed books, but never had storage that was made specifically for sex toys.  Sure, I’ve looked at a few, but I always had two questions when I look at dedicated toy storage:

  1. Why should I buy that box when I can get a bigger, locking train case with dividers, made of better material, and for 1/2 or 1/3 of the price you’re asking for?

2. Got anything bigger than what you’re showing me?

The first question, of course, doesn’t really have an answer, as any company will try to convince you that their product is the best thing ever.  I spoke with one company that used the word luxury so much in their correspondence that I got bored and started to wonder who they were trying to convince.

The second question is usually answered with something along the lines of, “We thought people would want small,” or, “Not now, but maybe later we’ll make something bigger.”  Of course, that doesn’t help those that are looking for larger storage now.  There are already tons of small boxes, pouches, and pillows on the market.  Some of us have been waiting for big.

When I saw the Pleasure Purse, I wondered about it.  Would this finally be the storage I’ve been hunting for?  It looked OK, and seemed pretty spacious from the photos.

I’m now in love with it.

A little bit about it:  The Pleasure Purse is a toy storage solution shaped as an oversized handbag.  The exterior is black leather, with leopard print satin interior.  It’s fairly large, being approximately 17″ wide x 11″ tall x 9″ deep (at the bottom, 7″ at the top).  Each bag comes with an additional shoulder strap, lock with two keys, and a satin leopard print storage bag for toys or lingerie.

What I loved: Let me just say the obvious:  The size is amazing.  Most of the toy storage I’ve seen has not only been outrageously priced, but can only hold maybe two or three toys, and that’s it.  That’s not the case here.  Here is a photo of the bag not even half full, with 13 items inside:

pp2In the photo at the top of the post, the bag is comfortably full without being stuffed.  Namely, all this stuff:

pp3Thirty-two items.  Thirty-two without it being stuffed.  More specifically, we have:

  • 2 bottles of Sliquid lubricant
  • 3 lubricant samples
  • Sqweel Go
  • Magic Wand
  • Njoy Pure Wand in it’s case
  • Tantus Echo
  • Tantus Splash
  • LELO Mona with charger
  • Tantus B-Bomb
  • Minna Limon with charger
  • We-Vibe Touch with charger
  • Je Joue MiMi with charger
  • We-Vibe Salsa with charger
  • Jopen Comet
  • 2 Tenga Eggs
  • Magic Banana
  • IGino in box
  • 2 glass wands
  • Fun Factory Big Boss with charger
  • Fun Factory Stronic Eins
  • Fun Factory Bimini Ocean
  • Leaf Vitality with charger
  • One Bad Dragon toy (not pictured)
  • We-Vibe 4 with charger
  • 2 books in the bottom

Even though this bag does not fit all my toys (there are a lot more), it does make it easy to keep favorites within reach or to pack them up securely and take them traveling.

Another thing I love about the bag is all the pockets.  There are 7 of them, aside from the main compartment.  There are two open top pockets on the outside of the bag, 2 zipper and 2 elastic top pockets on the inside (perfect for holding lubricants upright), and a zipper pocket that lies flat on the bottom for books, lingerie, or other items that need to be flat.

There is no indication on the outside of the bag that shows what the bag was made for, with the exception of two PP emblems, which most people won’t recognize.  Unlike a chest-style storage box that looks rather inviting (who doesn’t see a chest and just want to open it?), the Pleasure Purse looks like an oversized handbag or an overnight bag.  Basically, it looks like a pretty piece of luggage.  Nothing strange about that.  Nothing to see here.  Move along.

At first I wished there were more dividers inside to help with organization of toys, but I ended up deciding that I like the large, open compartment better.  It allows the bag to hold toys and clothes for overnight trips.  You can easily fit a day or two of clothes in the bag.

What I didn’t: The one thing that put me off about the Pleasure Purse is the leopard print interior.  I’m not a fan of animal print, and many people aren’t, but there seems to be this idea among some manufacturers that leopard print=sexy.  Personally, it reminds me of my mother who was a fan of animal prints.  That makes it feel a bit skeevy.  But since it’s on the inside, I can cope with it.

Aside from some different lining options, the only other thing I’d like to see is maybe some removable dividers, so the user can decide how large the main space is.

Final thought: I love the Pleasure Purse.  It retails for around $120, which is a little less than you’d pay for a nice leather overnight bag, and is bigger than many other toy solutions that are only designed to hold a few toys.  Add that to the fact that the Pleasure Purse seems well made, is lockable, and can double as an overnight bag to carry around your adult goodies, I’d say it’s worth a look.

  1. Yeah… Leopard print=/= sexy, at least in my eyes. I feel a solid, neutral color would be better for the interior. I also wish it weren’t real leather, but other than that this is just the type of thing I use when traveling with sex toys.
    This is much better than the other sex toy-specific storage I’ve seen. I hope it stands up through frequent use.
