Established in 2001.
Ida B started her business in 1960 on 28th Street dealing mostly in ladies and juniors fashions. Depending mostly on a South American trade. In 2000, her son James B. Joined her company, which was slowly dwindling due to the economic situation in South America. In August of 2001, James B. Decided it was time to change and update the business to keep up with the times. They decided they would start a discounted, sexy, lingerie wholesale outlet in a small brownstone located in the old flower district. After overwhelming demand they decided to start bringing in adult novelties and more, the success has been over whelming. Yelp has been a tremendous help with their success

NEW YORK SEX SHOPS – THE PLEASURE CHEST REVIEW
It’s going, it’s going, it’s going…it’s gone! This place is a home run for any person.
Amazing staff, amazing prices, amazing inventory and let’s face it…it’s a sex shop. I mean don’t get me wrong their are plenty but very few that make you feel comfortable and relaxed like this. The customer service was great and they helped with my questions and gave advice and even gave me information on upcoming workshops and events.
That’s the reason why I like this place…it’s a store that not only caters to it’s market but caters to it’s community! Also let’s talk a little bit about the store layout, now obviously there’s a security guard and a staff ready and willing but for the most part it’s a enter and browse kinda store. The toys and clothing pieces are placed around with little kick knacks and tools as shelf and table decorations.
