The following Monday, we’ll announce the winner who will receive a free Glow in the Dark Clone-A-Willy kit! Start thinking DICK and get ready to submit.

    Halloween Week(end) in the City of Roses

    Halloween is rapidly approaching, and if you're a proper Portlandian, you started creating your costume the day after you recovered from your Halloween-hangover last year. Portlanders are crazy for zombies, dressing up, and drinking; so bring your a game and join one of these ghoulish events.
     
    Thrill the World Dance – October 25th
    3pm @ Irvington Park
    Imagine a couple hundred zombies creeping into your local park. Add the moves of Thriller and the pipes of Michael Jackson and you’ve got “Thrill the World Dance” where you can put those Thriller moves you practiced for so many years in your bedroom to work. Join the practices on Friday and Sunday until the big event if you wanna freshen up your steps, or, observe from afar; like behind the locked door of your car in the parking lot, afar.
    Zombie Walk – October 25th
    4pm route begins @ Hollywood Vintage
    After you get all that dancing out of you, get your real zombie on during the Zombie Walk. People go all out in costume and make-up and you get to walk, crawl, and drag your way through the streets of Portland…AS A ZOMBIE. Seriously, start your Halloween week off properly.
    Doll Asylum – October 25-26, 31 & November 1st
    5-9pm @ The Doll Asylum
    As you enter the ‘asylum’ thousands of big, round, childlike eyes (if they’re not missing from their head) stare through you. Even though there are moments of cheesiness, it’s creepy and nostalgic. The graveyard and warehouse are where it starts to get gruesome with dolls on pikes and intestines spilling from their stomachs. Children are welcome if an adult is present—there will be trick-or-treat candy being passed out—or if you want to donate a doll, that’s cool too.
    BloodyVox: Nightmare on Northrup – October 25, 30-31 & November 1st
    7pm and 9pm @ BodyVox Dance Center
    Before you head out to party, support your local dance company for an amazing dance-theater performance that brings their favorite holiday to life. This year they’ll feature new performances, as well as cycle through a few old favorites. Bring a buddy to hold tight and wait for the wickedness to ensue.
    80s Video Dance Attack Portland Halloween Party – October 31st
    8pm @ Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room
    For an epic night of dancing, head to McMenamin’s Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room for two floors of blaring 80s beats, Halloween themed videos, and a night full of surprises. Costumes and dancing encouraged. Buy tickets ahead of time since it will probably sell out, though if you want to live on the edge, you can buy them at the door.
    Heaven and Hell Halloween Party – October 31st
    7pm @ Eastburn
    Not fans of huge crowds but still want to get out and dance? Head to Eastburn’s 7th annual Halloween party. There will be a $500 costume contest, music by Outta Limits and DJ Blas, and they have a bar on each floor so, hopefully, you don't have to wait in line for hours.
    Kruger Farms 2014 Cabaret Maze – October 25, 31 & November 1st
    6:30pm @ Kruger Farm, Sauvie’s Island
    Interested in more of a family affair? Walk the magician-themed corn maze, designed by local artist Peter Rockwell, and discovere adventure at every turn: fire dancers, hoola-hoopers, outdoor movies, and live music. End the night at Circus Tent for a full on, kid-friendly party. (They say the maze is recommended for kids 5 years+)
    Erotic Ball Halloween Party & Costume Contest – November 1st
    8pm @ Crystal Ballroom
    Looking to get your sexy on? Portland’s 15th annual Erotica Ball will be just the right amount of naughty to continue your Halloween weekend. Hosted by Emmy-nominee Sasha Scarlett, there will be plenty of skin and misbehaving to go around. Three floors of DJs, burlesque dancers, fetish demos, and four headliners to play make this one of the biggest, sexiest nights in Portland. It also has on of the largest costume contests in the city: $5000 in cash and prizes are given out to the Most Original, Best Group, and Sexiest Couple Costume.
    Transylvanian Voodoo Ball
    8pm @ Star Theater
    This 8th Annual Day of the Dead bash will haunt your night with musical performances by Vagabond Opera, Chernova, and Lesley Kernochan. Don’t miss the belly dancing, wandering performers, interactive installation, fortune telling table, and costume contest with prizes. Spice up your night and raise the dead!
    Zombie Sundays – Every Sunday until November 30th
    9pm @ Eastburn
    Don’t worry; we're taking care of your undead hangover too! Hit up Eastburn (again!) for their happy hour with food specials and some hair-of-the-dog, and then stick around for a viewing of a certain popular zombie television show.

    The Science of Sex: What Makes the Glow in the Dark Penis Kit Glow?

    penis kit glow

    Everyone here at Empire Labs agrees that the idea of making an exact silicone copy of any penis is really cool, but making a copy that glows in the dark? Even cooler! What exactly is it that makes your Glow in the Dark dildo glow, though?
    Your finished dildo will glow by a process known as zinc sulfide phosphorescence. Zinc sulfide (not to be confused with zinc sulfate, which has a very different molecular structure) is mixed with a precise concentration of a metal 'activator', which essentially allows it to store light energy. An easy way to think of how it works is to compare an activated zinc sulfide molecule to our solar system. The sun is its nucleus, consisting of positive charges (protons) and neutral charges (neutrons). The planets spinning around the sun are like the electrons, all in orbit around the nucleus. Light gets these electrons excited and causes them to take on energy. When the electrons become excited they move farther away from the nucleus into higher orbits. The electrons will remain in this excited state as long as they receive light to energize them. When the light source is removed, the electrons will slowly return to their original lower orbits. As they drop down, the energy that excited them in the first place is released in the form of light. This is known as zinc sulfide phosphorescence, and it's what makes your penis copy glow so brightly.
    You only have to expose your dildo to light for a few minutes to see it work, but more charging means more glowing, so you might wanna let it sit a while and charge. Depending on how long your dildo is exposed to light, this glow effect or 'light release' can take place over an hour or even more. 

     

    Whatever your definition of a highly unique sex toy might be, it likely won't even come close to a Glow in the Dark Clone-A-Willy Kit!
