Build-a-Vibe with Crave!

Have you ever wanted to build your own vibrator? Now's your chance! Sex toy manufacturer Crave is zooming across the country on their Pleasure Tour, and they're making a stop in Portland!

Visit our Mississippi location Saturday, April 14th or Sunday, April 15th and climb inside the Crave Design Factory — an Airstream that's been transformed into a showroom and mini factory. Drop in any time between noon and 8 pm on Saturday and noon and 7 pm on Sunday. Peruse Crave's product line (Crave toys are 20% off in the Airstream or in-store during the event!) and meet Ti Chang, head of design, to learn what goes into vibrator design.

Interested in building your very own vibrator? Choose a time slot and purchase it here on our site to secure your spot. The fun and informative Build-a-Vibe workshop includes step-by-step guidance as you assemble your very own pre-release Duet Pro rechargeable vibe to take home!

What's new in the shop

If you've ever wished you could design your own sex toy, listen up: the Dodil is a one-of-a-kind dildo that can be molded (and re-molded!) into virtually any shape you desire. Simply submerge in hot water to soften, then shape with your hands and let cool and harden. Want a different shape? Simply reheat and repeat the process. Watch a demonstration on our Instagram!


Also new on our shelves: the Vibrating Cadet, a realistic, dual-density silicone dildo that VIBRATES (a surprisingly rare combination!). Plus, the Kiss-X Stroker, a smaller version of the Buck-Off, offers a snugger fit for folks with smaller genitalia, while the Bvibe Petite anal plug simulates rimming — and can be controlled with a remote!

We picked up two new books this month: The Trans Partner Handbook, a guide for folks whose partners are transitioning, and Night Shift, a choose-your-own erotica book by porn performer and director Joanna Angel.

Love's Not Color Blind: Race & Representation in Polyamorous Communities

Thursday, May 10th — 7:30 p.m. —$15
