Their mission is to support, enrich, and empower the feminist community through literature, art, and educational and cultural events.

Most recently, In Other Words has created a free lending library, which enables everyone to find radical books in a space that is accessible to all economic demographics. Go sign up for a library card today, and come visit us on any Tuesday in January to support In Other Words!

What We Bop: Glass

If you've been to our shop, you've seen the lovely glass sex toys on our shelves and in our cases. They're always shining and reflecting the light, naturally drawing the eye to them. But glass dildos and glass butt plugs (such as the Luxotiq Plug and Simply Blown Stopper) are more than just beautifully-shaped hunks of glass — they are incredibly stimulating pleasure objects.

Despite their handcrafted beauty, glass sex toys still live under the stigma that they are delicate, easily broken, and even dangerous. Not true! High-quality glass toys are long-lasting, sturdy, and of course, they feel great. Need more convincing? Here are our top reasons for loving glass sex toys.

New product round-up

Books, books books — many books hit our shelves this past month! Such as Joan Price's Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex, a priceless resource for older folks who want to nurture their sexual selves. There's a lot of new erotica to be had, too, as well as books about burlesque, pin-ups, and even a graphic novel.

We picked up one new vibrator this month: luxury company Je Joue's newest offering, a rechargeable G-spot vibrator named Uma. We actually sold out of this toy within 2 days, so we're waiting for more to come in. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, and we'll post there when we get them back in stock.

But wait — there's more! Read about all the newly-added items on our blog!

'Sup on the blog?
Coming on the heels of our XBIZ Award nomination, we were happy to learn that we have been nominated for an AVN Award as well! We are nominated for "Best Boutique" in the Retail/Distribution section. And we're among friends: six of our fellow Progressive Pleasure Club shops have been nominated, too.

On December 17th, we observed International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. First observed in 2003, this day includes memorials, vigils, and activism — and symbolizes a powerful cry for an end to violence and discrimination against sex workers.

Mr. V, teacher of sex ed class at Friends' Central SchoolAs most sex ed programs in the U.S. continue to push abstinence, a gutsy teacher is showing everyone what comprehensive sex education could look like — and it looks very promising. Al Vernacchio teaches an elective class for high school seniors, and New York Times Magazine published a fantastic, in-depth article about the course.

Google recently announced a considerable increase in health care coverage for their U.S. transgender employees. Trans employees are now entitled to a full range of procedures and treatment, including transitioning procedures. Good on you, Google!

Join She Bop's very own AJ (aka Amory Jane) for an evening of education and fun. Ever wandered around a sex toy shop and wondered "what the heck is that?" Never fear, AJ will answer those burning (in a good way) questions and then some!

In this class you will learn how sex toys originated and have advanced throughout history. AJ will explain the different types of toys, what they are used for and what they are made from, including vibrators, dildos, kegel exercisers, anal toys, toys for BDSM and more. Of course, don't forget one of the most important things of all... yes, that would be lube! AJ will go over the different types of lube, as well as the ingredients to be aware of when selecting the best product for you. She will also address how to clean and store your toys so that you can enjoy them for as long as possible.

Additionally, AJ will give pointers on how to select a toy or gift for someone else — just in time for your Valentine's Day shopping. Hey, even tickets to this class could make a superb Valentine's Day present!

This workshop is open to all genders and sexual appetites!
