New product round-up for August

First things first: VULVA EARRINGS. These one-of-a-kind pieces are made of Italian glass by a local artist. The process involves a centuries-old process called Lampwork and as such, each earring is unique. They hang on sterling silver wires and, we assure you, are the perfect accessory to any swanky affair.

Want to experiment with rope bondage safely and enjoyably? The Twisted Monk Rope Starter Kit is ideal for your adventures! This kit, made in Seattle, comes with one 30-foot piece of rope, two lengths of 10-foot rope, a “getting started” DVD, quick reference safety card, and safety scissors.

In vibrator-land, we grabbed Fun Factory’s newest battery-operated toys: Jazzie, Joupie, and Jam. These single-speed vibrators are a great option for the budget-conscious, as they’re inexpensive without sacrificing quality. Made with the best 100% silicone, they’re also pleasantly flexible.

To round things out, we grabbed the Blush Beau, a silicone battery-operated toy with a more realistic shape, and the Lipstick Vibe, which is designed specifically for discreet travel and play. On the super fancy end of the spectrum, we have the latest offering from Crave: the Duet Flex. This USB-rechargeable toy has two motors, one in each tip, to surround the clitoris with vibration.

For all the butts out there, we got the Rocks-Off O Boy, a slim beginner-friendly prostate vibrator. For the penises, we have the impeccably-designed OxBalls Cocksling #2. There’s On Arousal Oil for the clitoris or head of the penis, to increase blood flow and sensation. All genitals win!

Our bookshelf has expanded this month with several books, each on a very different topic! First, we got Sex is a Funny Word, an educational and inclusive book for kids ages 7-10 (and follow-up to the wildly-awesome What Makes a Baby). Then, written by the owner of a feminist sex shop in Toronto, we got Sex Yourself: The Woman’s Guide to Mastering Masturbation and Achieving Powerful Orgasms. Finally, we have The Fetish Coloring Book, filled with wonderfully detailed illustrations and genital-themed puzzles. What, you’ve never done a genital-themed puzzle before?

New product round-up for July

new-products-july-2015

The most exciting vibrator release of the month is the Fun Factory Tiger G5, an updated version of the company’s popular G4 toy. This textured, perfectly-curved wonder has a revamped button interface and more pliable shaft. What didn’t change? It’s still jam-packed with power!

Our other new toys this month come from Tantus. They just released the Uncut #1 and Uncut #2, some of the world’s first body-safe uncircumcised dildos. Cast in the company’s signature dual-density silicone, these toys feel incredibly life-like! We also grabbed Tantus’ Vibrating Progressive Pleasure Beads (finally, vibrating silicone anal beads!) and Vibrating Super Soft C Ring.

new-books-dvds-july-2015

We have so much new media for you to enjoy! From local Microcosm Publishing, Hot Pants: Do It Yourself Gynecology and Herbal Remedies contains all sorts of useful info on at-home remedies for cramps, PMS, and infections, while Consensuality: Navigating Feminism, Gender, and Boundaries Towards Loving Relationships details feminist lessons in healthy partnerships. We also picked up Best Bondage Erotica 2015, a curated selection of kinky stories, and My Life on the Swingset, a collection of personal essays about non-monogamy, sex toys, and other escapades.

Many porn additions to our shelves this month, as the top feminist porn directors of modern times continue cranking out excellent work! There’s Doing it Again, Vol. 2the follow-up to Tobi Hill-Meyer’s trans-women-focused Doing It Ourselves, plus James Darling’s FTM Fucker, Volume 1 and Courtney Trouble’s Lesbian Curves 3 (you guessed it — the latest in their Lesbian Curves series). Renowned director Erika Lust even added another DVD to her popular series which brings anonymous fantasies to life: X Confessions Vol. 4.

Adding to our collection of locally-made bath products from Sea Grape, we now have their delicious-smelling massage candles. We also picked up Earthly Body’s Miracle Oil Tea Tree Shave Cream, which is infused with natural hemp seed oil.

New product round-up for January

LELO Mona Wave and Ina Wave

When it comes to new technological innovations, LELO is always coming up with something exciting. This month it’s the Mona Wave and Ina Wave, based on their popular Mona and Ina vibrators. These unique toys have shafts that physically move up and down, mimicking a “come hither” motion against the G-spot.

LELO also released an upgraded version of one of their classic vibrators: Siri 2. We’re thrilled that this toy is now waterproof and more powerful than before! It even has a sound-responsive setting, enabling the toy to vibrate to any music playing in its vicinity.

We have several other new toys — the Crave Vesper, OhMiBod Lovelife Cuddle, Bettie Page Buzzin’ Bullet, and Fun Factory ShareVibe — which are featured in our Valentine’s Day Picks. Visit that post for more information about each!

New DVDs from Erika Lust and Courtney Trouble

Prolific feminist porn maker Erika Lust just released the third installment of her DVD series X Confessions. With stories based on anonymous sex confessions submitted to her site, this compilation features group sex, roleplay, outdoor sex, ice play, strap-on sex, and more! We also picked up some delicious new queer porn from Courtney TroubleFucking MysticFuckstyles 2: Dirty Fucks, and Trans Lesbians.

Our latest books include Best Women’s Erotica 2015, Kissing: A Field GuideAs Kinky As You Wanna Be: Your Guide to Safe, Sane, and Smart BDSM, and the latest from the venerable senior sex expert Joan Price, The Ultimate Guide to Sex After Fifty. The new Original Plumbing is the Selfie Issue, featuring reader-submitted photos and ruminations on trans portrayals in popular culture!

Finally, just in time for Valentine’s Day, we snagged some of Filthy Farmgirl’s fabulous Filthy Valentine soap! The scent is cardamom rose, and it is lovely.
