We love locally-made goodies!
 
Locally-made porcelain dildos

Doesn't buying stuff locally just warm the cockles of your heart? We agree — it feels really good to support local businesses. That's why we've always made it a priority to stock locally-made products and team up with Oregon artists for specialty items. We recently added a local section to our online shop, but we thought it was time for a more in-depth run-down of all the Beaver State goodies we carry!

From floggers fashioned out of old tires to organic lube and handmade toy bags, this stuff is very Portland — just how we like it. Read about all the local products we carry here!


New product round-up
 
Sliquid Satin and the Je Joue FiFi

Sliquid's done it again! Their newest offering, Satin, is a water-based, glycerin- and paraben-free intimate moisturizer formulated for those experiencing vaginal dryness. It is perfect for daily use, and can be used during sex as well!

The Je Joue FiFi is one unique rabbit! This rechargeable, fully waterproof vibe is made of silky 100% silicone and features 7 vibration levels and 7 vibration patterns. Simultaneous G-spot and clitoral stimulation will be yours with this one!
 
OhMiBod Freestyle W

Behold, the OhMiBod Freestyle W, a brightly-colored dual stimulation vibe that can vibrate in response to music... or you can control it with an OhMiBod app on your phone. This is the future!

And we also added a book to our catalog this month: Crazy Little Thing: Why Love and Sex Drive Us Mad is a humorous look at the way endorphins, hormones and neurotransmitters in our brains cause us to go to extremes when it comes to sex and love.

Cultivating a Healthy and Happy Pelvic Floor

Wednesday, March 7th — 7:30 p.m. — $10

You've heard that doing your Kegels will enhance your orgasms and prevent incontinence, but how do you know you're doing them correctly? How many? Which muscles? How long to hold? Should you be doing anything else other than Kegels to keep your pelvic floor happy and strong?

Get those questions answered and more with Dr. Anna Koteff, pelvic floor physical therapist. She will teach you how to do Kegels the right way, when to squeeze and when not to squeeze, and how to work those pelvic floor exercises into your daily routine. We all have pelvic floors but often know so little about how they work (or only learn about them when they don't!). Stay ahead of the curve — come join us!

Dr. Anna Koteff, PT, DPT is a physical therapist with Everybody Physical Therapy in Portland and Vancouver. She specializes in pelvic floor rehabilitation for conditions including pelvic pain, incontinence, interstitial cystitis, and pregnancy/postpartum-related issues.
