We can't get enough of The Lesbian Sex Haiku Book (with Cats!). In addition to hilarious illustrations of cats in compromising positions, it's full of amusing haikus such as:

Lesbian sex is
like water polo―no one 
really knows the rules.


B Ball UnoFun Factory's new B Ball Uno is a butt plug that reacts to your motions. As you move, the inner weighted ball rolls around, producing pleasurable anal sensations. The B Ball Uno is a good fit for users wanting the unique stimulation without the length of the B Balls Duo.

This month we also picked up the book The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality. In it, author Julie Sondra Decker counters misconceptions and provides resources about asexuality. It's a great book for those who identify as asexual, as well as their friends and loved ones.

Today, we utilize this ancient practice to enliven, open, heal, and energetically cleanse yoni (vagina), as well as strengthen and understand our pelvic region in ways we may have not previously understood. Far, far more than just a vaginal exercise device, in this introductory workshop you will learn the basics of this potent practice, and why it is important to your overall vitality. Read more and sign up online!
