Amory Jane's grand adventure!

Our Education Coordinator, Amory Jane, just began her second national teaching tour, and we're so excited! She will be blogging about her adventures from Edna the Sex Ed Mobile, her 21-ft toyhome camper/tiny home on wheels. We are sponsoring her to help make her dreams a reality!

Check out AJ's upcoming travel dates and follow her journey on her website, Instagram, and Twitter.

What's new in the shop

We are thrilled to be one of the first retailers to carry the brand new sparkly Doxy Die Cast wand! It's extremely powerful just like the original Doxy, but this edition has a silicone head, LED buttons, and, lest you forget, comes in sparkly red or white.

The Fun Factory Bootie is the little black dress of butt plugs — and now it comes in three different sizes! Many folks, from beginners to advanced anal players, appreciate Bootie's impeccable curve and ergonomic base.

Prefer the unyielding smoothness of glass? Check out the Glas Amethyst Rain Butt Plug, which is solid and perfectly shaped for targeted stimulation, or the Crystal Eclipse Wand, which provides two options for G-spot or prostate stimulation with its dual-ended design.

Want to do some serious scratching? These polished stainless steel claws are filed to a sharp point and come in various sizes. Each piece is handmade at a small metal working shop in Arlington, Washington.

Our latest lubricant is Janie's Rose, a unique oil-based spray that doubles as a vaginal moisturizer. The silky and long-lasting feel of Janie's Rose makes it ideal for dryness as well as a great addition to sex. We also picked up delicious-smelling coconut body lotion from Filthy Farmgirl.

Finally, we added many new books to our shelves this month, such as Begging for It, 21 erotica stories edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel; Rethinking Normal, a coming-of-age memoir from nineteen-year-old trans girl Katie Hill; and Love Not Given Lightly: Profiles from the Edge of Sex. We picked up two new coloring books as well: The Post-Structuralist Vulva Coloring Book and Chin Up, Dreamboat.

Communication in the Bedroom: Asking For What You Want

Sunday, October 9th — 7:30 p.m. — $15

Knowing what you want isn't as easy as it sounds, and asking for it can be even trickier. Many people never take the chance to open a dialogue with their partner(s). But being able to talk about your wants and needs is the only way to get them met.

In this class Stella Harris will talk about styles of communication, ways to put yourself and your partner at ease, and specific examples of tools and phrases to try. She'll discuss how to start the conversation and how to incorporate communication into dirty talk. Read more and sign up online!

Redefining Success When Polyamorous Relationships End

Sunday, October 23rd — 7:30 p.m. — $15

Conventional wisdom still defines a marriage or long-term relationship that ends in any other outcome besides death as a failure. Polyamorists, in contrast, define the ends of their relationships in a number of ways.

In this workshop, using data from a 20 year study of polyamorous families, Dr. Elisabeth Sheff will explain the three primary ways in which poly people think about the ends of their relationships, look at some of the social implications of redefining the ends of or transitions in relationships, and take questions from the audience. Read more and sign up online!
