PRIDE is here, a very important celebration for our city and our community! Here at L.A. Weekly, we are honored to share our flare with this year’s PRIDE Box! Take a look below to see some of our favorite inclusive brands and items:

 

101 Cider House Ginger Rouge

101 Cider House is the original “Adults Only” juice bar. We work with local farms to produce raw juice, using only fresh-sourced verified ingredients. Our juice is pressed in small batches, then fermented and aged for 3 months to produce a naturally alcoholic & certified probiotic beverage. Cold pressed juice just got healthier, and hangovers have officially gone out of style. Have a drink with Mother Nature and get to know her wild side!

HUSTLER Hollywood

Celebrate PRIDE with a few sexy and fun trinkets from HUSTLER Hollywood! 

 Wear your PRIDE on your sleeve, with our cyber-sexy metallic temporary tattoo pack, created just for the season! Lick ‘em and stick ‘em wherever your heart desires for a little extra glam to get the party started right.  

Before you step out, step into one of our best-selling fragrances: HUSTLER® Queen.

This aptly named scent offers yummy notes of neroli, bitter orange, raspberry, orange flower absolute, Arabian jasmine absolute, honey, patchouli. A little confidence in a bottle, fit for a Queen! 

Now for the fun part: the toy! After a long night out, you don’t need to let the party stop. Continue the celebration with the HUSTLER® Playthings Silicone Anal Probe.  

One of our favorite things about anal play is how universal it is — everyone and their mamas have a b-hole (sorry for the maternal visual) and sex and pleasure via the booty are the great equalizer. It defies gender and sexuality can create mind-blowing orgasms you didn’t dream possible.  

Relax and get ready for a fulfilling sensual experience alone, or with a friend (or a few).  The tapered shaft allows you to work your way up at your own speed while the 10 unique vibration settings give you complete control. This toy is a fantastic choice of both probe and massager combined, made of safe and pure silicone material and can be used on most intimate areas or erogenous zones!
