She Bop's Picks: Vibrators $30 and under

Shopping on a budget can be rough, but when it comes to sex toys, you can rest assured that we've done all the background research for you. We only stock toys that we believe are worth the money, and our selection of inexpensive vibrators is carefully curated.

For when you want to save money but still get something worthwhile, here are our picks for the best vibes $30 and under.

 
What's new in the shop
 


We picked up three new dildos from Happy Valley this month: WildeFuze Tango, and Jet. Our newest vibe is Zizo, a firm silicone G-spotter. For your butt, we have the new Aneros Helix Syn, a silicone-coated prostate massager.

We also picked up Queer: The Ultimate Guide for LGBT Teens, a Rubber Collar and Rubber Cuffs, and some cowboy-themed lubes from Sliquid. Read about all the new items on our blog!

Bonus! We now have a "New Arrivals" section on our site that you can check whenever you're wondering what's fresh.
 

'Sup on the blog?
 
Buck AngelThis month on our blog, we learned all about groundbreaking trans filmmaker, motivational speaker, educator, and advocate, Buck Angel. Buck grew up roughhousing with boys and fantasizing about being John Wayne. He battled depression and addiction before finding his calling as an award-winning FTM adult film producer. Read Buck's story here!

Although the weather is getting milder now that it's September, PDX has been hit with a few very hot days this summer, which prompted us to write a post about sexy ways to beat the heat. Sometimes hot days can feel unbearable, but with a little creativity, sex and masturbation during heat waves can be super fun.

We also wrote about Tobi Hill-Meyer's latest project, an erotic documentary that includes interviews with trans women and their partners, plus explicit sex scenes. This film was partially funded via Kickstarter. In fact, donations totaled over $15,000 of the initial, modest $6,000 goal, which means Hill-Meyer now has the funds to commission original music, add subtitles, and produce a third volume featuring genderqueer and non-binary folks. Hooray!
