What's new in the shop



We've been seeking high-quality wooden paddles for years, and we finally found what we were looking for in Paddle Daddy! These stunning impact toys are handmade in southern Oregon and come in three sizes and types of wood: small Wenge, medium Zebrawood, and large Walnut. We also picked up their Barber Strap and Li'l Slugger.



To answer your question: yes, that is a Tom of Finland vibrating Hammer and Night Stick Set. What really won us over, though, was the interchangeability of the attachments (so many options for stimulation!) and the rumbly feel of the vibrations.

The latest from We-Vibe is the Wish, a delightfully squishy external vibrator that stimulates broad surface areas. On the other end of the spectrum is the Vooom, one of our smallest vibes and now our most inexpensive rechargeable.

Finally, we picked up Over the Door Restraints from local company In Her Tube, a rainbow flag sticker, and the Gil Elvgren Coloring Book.
