New product round-up for July

Here are the products we added to our catalog in the month of July! First up: the Slimline G, an inexpensive plastic vibe designed for superb G-spot stimulation. This toy would make a great introduction to G-spot exploration.

That snazzy box you see is a pack of Sir Richard’s condoms. Aside from having really hip packaging, Sir Richard’s believes that safe sex is a human right. So, for every Sir Richard’s condom you buy, they will donate one condom to a country in need. Pretty neat, eh?

Then there’s Furverts, an amusing (and interactive: it has a fuzzy peek-a-boo cover!) photographic look at the furry subculture. We also added three other books: The Ultimate Guide to Orgasm for Women, Woman Cancer Sex, and Man Cancer Sex.

Last but not least: porn! We now stock these hot lesbian movies: Take Her Down! Lesbian Erotic Oil Wrestling Party and a two-pack of Afterschool Special and Turn Me Up Over and On. And finally, to bulk up our Classic/Vintage DVD category, we’ve added one DVD of softcore burlesque nudes from the ’40s and ’50s, and one DVD of softcore nudes from the ’50s and ’60s.

AVN selects She Bop as one of top 50 adult retailers

Well, hey! AVN (Adult Video News) has compiled their first ever list of the adult industry’s top 50 retailers, and we’re on it!

According to AVN, the chosen retailers all express a “willingness to be active partners in their customers’ quest for sexual satisfaction.” But of course!

We’re listed under “single-store brick-and-mortars,” and our blurb goes like this:

Evy Cowan and Jeneen Doumitt opened She Bop in 2009, allied to create a boutique specializing in non-toxic toys, female-friendly DVDs and gifts focused on sexuality. Recent events have included classes on “Full-Bodied Fellatio” and “Rough Sex for Beginners: Consent and Desire,” and blog posts cover local events, new products in the shop, and general musings on pleasure and sexuality.

We were honored to have been listed at all, but to be listed alongside some amazing shops such as Early to Bed, Good for Her, Come As You Are, and The Tool Shed is even sweeter. Thanks, AVN!

New product round-up for June

Perhaps the most exciting new products are the ones from Fun Factory: the Tiger, Elegance, Calla, and Big Boss are part of Fun Factory’s new G4 line. Each vibe is rechargeable and fully waterproof, with a silky 100% silicone shaft and ergonomic looped handle. Bonus: they look a bit like popsicles. Oh yeah, each has a “booster” button for when you need a quick burst of power!

We also have some amazing new packing underwear from Spareparts Hardwear! The Pete Briefs and Pete Freestyle are two styles of packing undies that give you the option of having the packer rest directly against your skin, or to cover it. They also have an open-fly front design — perfect for STP packer use. These undies come in four sizes and are made of lightweight, breathable Nylon Spandex fabric.

One new book this month: Fairy Tale Lust: Erotic Fantasies for Women, which is full of hot stories inspired by classic fairy tales.

And finally — we thought you guys might like some Lube Tubes. These are fun little disposable plastic shooters that can aid in applying lube to the spots that need it most. Especially good for anal!

New product round-up for May

Here’s what we added to the shop and our online store in the month of May!

The spunky people at Tickler have re-invented the rabbit! Check out the innovative Double Toyfriend Bossy and Double Toyfriend Shorty. Both are 100% silicone vibrators with insertable shafts and long-eared rabbits for clitoral stimulation. Shorty is quite a bit smaller than Bossy, so check the dimensions to find the right one for you.

Pjur Original Bodyglide is one of the most popular silicone lubes of all time, so we’re excited to add it to our catalog. A little goes a long way with silicone lube, so this 3.4-ounce bottle will last a while! (Read more about lube in our Lube 101 guide.)

The flower-shaped Gossip Ring has to be one of the cutest toys we’ve ever seen — it’s a finger vibe that doubles as a cock ring. It can also be worn out on the town as an incognito fashion accessory.

And this is a first for us: we’re stocking our first strap-on vibe! It’s called the Wing Fling, and the stimulator is a butterfly made of phthalate-free TPE. We do carry some awesome hands-free vibes (like the Cleo, Snuggle Puss and We-Vibe), but the Wing Fling is the first product that attaches to the body with straps and is controlled by a remote.

Last but not least, we’ve added two amusing and boob-centric products to our Party Fun category: Gummy Boobs and a Boobie Mug.

Mistress Pineapple raves about her experience at She Bop

We always love to hear what customers think of their shopping experience at She Bop, so we were so delighted to see Mistress Pineapple recount her visit on her blog! Here is what she had to say:

Walking into Portland’s SheBop the Shop last week was like a dream come true (minus a naked Colin Firth, naturally). I rarely make it out to North Portland but this trip was definitely worth it. Wall to wall vibrators, dildos, books, strap-on harnesses, anal plugs, lube and a smiling sales clerk greet you when you slip through the door on N. Beech St. And the best part of all? Not only can touch and play with just about everything, you’re encouraged to.

. . . After perusing the Fun Factory table and ogling the absolutely epic wall of strap-on harnesses, I tentatively picked up a vibrator. As soon as I started playing with the buttons, the sweetly quiet saleslady was beside me, happily displaying the various settings. Far from overbearing, this SheBop girl kept the perfect distance and let me explore to my heart’s content.

Going to a sex boutique with a budget is an absolute must for me. But let me tell you, I had a very hard time sticking to my guns and not buying everything in the store.

Mistress Pineapple ended up buying the LELO Luna Beads, a set of kegel exercisors. She loves them!

The Luna Beads are great! I wear them while I do laundry, grocery shop, run errands and work out (it’s just too much fun to be doing healthy, sexy exercises in the privacy of your pants). I really want to grab one of these sweet beads from Fun Factory to keep in my purse. If you’re not sold on either of those, my best friend bought this set and absolutely loves it.

Thank you so much, Mistress Pineapple, for taking the time to write about your visit with us on your blog. And now, I’m off to satisfy my sudden craving for some tropical fruit…

New product round-up for April

We recently added a truckload of new items to our catalog, and we want to tell you all about them!

First, the vibrating delights: we’re now stocking the much-anticipated Jimmyjane Form 4. This vibrator is bulbous, rechargeable, powerful, and waterproof — awesome!

We have several new cock rings: a leather one and even a stainless steel ring. We’re also excited about the new Tenga Flip Air masturbation sleeve, an updated version of the uber-popular Tenga Flip Hole.

Remember how we promised to stock even more of the movies nominated for Feminist Porn Awards this year? Well, we got ’em! Feast your eyes on the feminist-approved Billy Castro Does the MissionRoulette Toronto, and My Own Master. We are also now stocking Matinee and Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex 3: Adrianna’s Dangerous Mind.

We’ve added a ton of books to our catalog! We got some exciting parenting books: Sex and Sensibility and Always My Child. We’re also plumping up our Gender/Politics book section with some amazing and important books: Kate Bornstein’s Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation, Helen Boyd’s My Husband Betty, and S. Bear Bergman’s Butch is a Noun.

Oh, and how could I forget — Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, which is seriously hilarious.

Believe it or not, that’s not even everything we’ve added in the past month, but I’ll spare you an even longer link barrage! Drop by the shop and ask us what’s new, or use the filter in our online store to sort items from “newest to oldest.”

Now carrying locally-made porcelain dildos

Exciting news! We recently started carrying a new collection of porcelain dildos, and you won’t find them anywhere else except at She Bop.

These gorgeous dildos are handmade right here in Portland, Oregon. Ranging from 4.5 to 7 inches long and 1.25 to 2 inches in diameter, each dildo is one-of-a-kind. Some are short, stout, and entirely smooth, while others are wide and adorned with sensual ridges. Many feature curves or bulbous heads for exceptional G-spot stimulation. Crafted in a milky white porcelain and sealed with a non-porous and body-safe glaze, these dildos look and feel incredible. Each dildo also features a hollowed-out base that is ideal for grasping.

Porcelain is a very unique sex toy material: it is sleek, hard, and heavy. It retains temperature wonderfully, so you can submerge a porcelain toy in some warm water before using it (or chill it in the fridge!). Best of all, porcelain is compatible with all types of lube.

Whatever your taste in sex toys, one of these stunning dildos is sure to strike your interest. Come down to She Bop and ogle them today!
