She Bop’s Picks: Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

If you’re currently pondering what to get your significant other this holiday season, we have you covered! Here are our top picks for sexy holiday gift-giving and stocking-stuffing. Visit us in person or peruse our online store to snatch these up. Also check out last year’s picks for even more ideas!

LELO Lyla

We’re always excited to see what luxury sex toy manufacturer LELO will come out with next, and their latest line of wireless, rechargeable, SenseMotion toys is couples-oriented and really fun! Lyla is an insertable egg vibrator that is controlled by the movement of its remote. So, for instance, you can tilt the remote to increase the vibration strength. The best part is that the remote also vibrates — mirroring the vibrations in the egg — so the person holding the remote knows what their partner is feeling. Lyla comes packaged in a luxurious LELO gift box.

Nitrile cock ring set

If you’ve been thinking about trying cock rings but aren’t quite sure where to start, the Nitrile cock ring set is a great introduction! These 100% skin-safe nitrile rings come in a pack of three different sizes (1.25″, 1.5″, and 2″), so you can experiment and find the perfect fit. This set is compatible with both silicone and water-based lubricants.

Lube sampler pack

How can you resist this cuteness? We know that sometimes it’s hard to choose just one lube, so we’ve put together a lube sampler pack that comes in a festive gift bag! Each bag is $9 and includes one sample each of these lubes:

For an extra $8, we’ll throw in a Power Bullet in the color of your choice!

Slimline G

This one’s for the G-spot explorer on your list! The Slimline G is a delightfully inexpensive plastic vibrator with a slim body and a bulbous head — the perfect shape for pinpoint G-spot stimulation. Strong, multi-speed vibrations add some extra oomph. The Slimline G can be used clitorally as well, and its length is ideal for reaching the clit during a variety of positions.

Jimmyjane Afterglow Candle, Gingersnap

This candle will get you into the holiday spirit and the sexy spirit at the same time. Jimmyjane’s Afterglow Candles are known for smelling absolutely amazing, but that’s not all — the wax doubles as a massage oil! The rim of the candle is shaped perfectly for pouring the warm oil onto the skin. One gingersnap massage, coming right up!

The Cookie Sutra, Adult Mad Libs, and Sextrology

It was hard for us to choose just a few book-type items to recommend, but we narrowed it down to three. The Cookie Sutra is full of photographs of gingerbread cookies going at it — what else do you need to know? Adult Mad Libs are always a riot, and there’s even a festive “Santa Baby” version for your fill-in-the-blank amusement. Sextrology features entertaining examinations of the zodiac’s 24 gender signs; the authors even compare the compatibility of specific couplings. How fun!

Flexi Felix

Flexi Felix is a superb set of 100% silicone anal beads which are a ton of fun all on their own. But look at that face! Can’t you imagine this little fellow peeking out of a stocking? And the look on your partner’s face as the beads are revealed one by one? It would be an adorable sign of things to come.

Olivia’s Lucky Ladies Playing Cards

If you know any card game fiends, we recommend this sexy deck of official regulation-size playing cards. These cards feature 52 different paintings of the irreplaceable Bettie Page. Feast your eyes on Bettie Page posing in a variety of alluring outfits and positions… then, try to get your head back in the game!

Silky Tie-Ups

The possibilities are endless with this luxurious yet affordable pair of 5-foot, 100% polyester sashes. Tie one around your lover’s head to blindfold them — or slide one end into the loop around wrists or ankles, and pull. The soft, sensual material is sure to send a message of love — and restraint.

MiMi

Resembling a flower petal or smooth pebble, the Je Joue MiMi is one of our favorite new clitoral vibes this year. This rechargeable, fully waterproof silicone toy has five levels of intense vibration, followed by five fun vibration patterns. And wrapping paper is hardly necessary with this toy, as it comes in a sleek black gift box tied shut with a ribbon.

Candy, but not just any candy

If your partner likes to find candy in their stocking, we have some suggestions for you to toss in alongside the chocolate kisses. Gummy boobs, perhaps? Or maybe a candy G-string, nipple tassels, love ring, cuffs, necklace, or posing pouch? Go with whatever suits their personality best, or whatever will be the most fun to eat off them.

Little Box of Smut Word Magnets

These little tins would slip into a stocking perfectly! When unboxed, the magnetic words will help you decorate your refrigerator with naughty sentences. Don’t worry if you’re not feeling particularly smutty — there are other word magnet boxes with different themes: Love, Obscenities, and Passion.

Bcute Pearl

The Bcute lives up to its name — it is a cute, petite vibrator that also happens to be quite versatile. At 3″ insertable length, the Bcute is small enough to be used for clitoral stimulation, or it can be inserted to take advantage of its undulating shape. The Bcute is also waterproof!

Batteries and condoms

Still need to fill some space in that stocking you’re stuffing? Throw in some condoms (we suggest One condoms for their colorful and unique packaging) or batteries. Our favorite batteries are the funky, one-of-a-kind Dead Batteries, which can be found in AA, AAA, and button cell varieties. They’ll surely be put to good use, and besides, they’ll look great among the candy.

New product round-up for November

A wide variety of new books have hit our shelves this month. Chester 5000-XYV is a quirky, steampunk-inspired erotic comic that chronicles the love between human and machine. Then we have an instructional guide, Intimacy & Desire: Awaken the Passion in Your Relationship, written by a marriage and family therapist. A local Portland author, Lidia Yuknavitch, has written a powerful memoir called The Chronology of Water that we’re proud to carry.

We’ve picked up a bunch of new sex toys! First, the We-Vibe 3, an updated version of the insanely popular We-Vibe couples’ vibrator. Now it comes with a remote, for streamlined control of the toy no matter which position you happen to be in!

We also have Pop Tops, silicone sleeves that make the head of your Hitachi easier to clean and/or more textured. For the butt, we have an artsy prostate plug, the Aneros Progasm Ice. We also picked up a sleek glass G-spot dildo from Simply Blown.

From our friends at Aslan Leather, look at the gorgeous new Crystal Blue Jaguar! This harness, in Aslan’s signature low-rise Jaguar style, comes in a beautiful powder blue leather with white accents. We also now carry the Minx Upgrade, which can transform the back of any Jaguar harness into a corset.

One new DVD is gracing our catalog this month, and it’s a great one: Courtney Trouble’s new release, Live Sex ShowIf you like being a voyeur — and watching others engage in voyeurism — you should definitely check this one out. Plus, it unabashedly shows fisting.

This one may be a small addition, but if you have a latex allergy or sensitivity, it’s an important one: the Skyn Large condoms from Lifestyles are made of polyisoprene, a non-latex material, and come in a bigger size than other non-latex offerings.

For those with a kinky bent (or an adventurous spirit), we have two new ways to tie someone up: Silky Tie-Ups and Silk Binding Sashes. Take things even further with the delightfully unique Love is Art kit, which includes everything you need to create a truly one-of-a-kind painting. Pour the non-toxic, washable black paint onto the included white cotton canvas, then… let your bodies make love and art.

Or perhaps you’d like a different sort of craft project? In that case, pick up a jet black Clone-a-Willy kit and make a black, vibrating replica of your favorite penis today!

New product round-up for October

After much anticipation, we’re now carrying luxury brand LELO’s three newest toys: Tiani, a U-shaped couples’ vibe; Lyla, an egg-shaped vibe; and Oden, a vibrating cock ring. These rechargeable toys come with remotes and are equipped with SenseMotion technology — the vibes respond to the movement of the remote. Really cool!

We also picked up the We-Vibe Tango, a petite, rechargeable vibe that packs quite a punch, and the PicoBong Ipo, an adorable finger vibe.

If you’re a fan of suction, time to rejoice! We now carry the Vibrating Pleasure Pump. It brings blood flow to the clitoris and can increase sensitivity. Plus, it vibrates for additional stimulation.

Four deliciously diverse new books this month: Big Big Love, a book for plus-size loving; The Secrets of Great G-Spot Orgasms and Female Ejaculation, the new guide from Tristan Taormino; and Sensuous Magic, a beginner’s guide to S&M. Plus, the newest issue of Original Plumbing is here, and it’s all about family and parenting!

Things are getting cold around here, so we added a Massage Candle Trio from Earthly Body. These candles smell great and melt into a luscious, warm oil that can be poured onto a partner’s skin for a massage. This set comes in a gift bag and contains three candles with different yummy scents for you to indulge in: Polynesia (Plumeria), Skinny Dip (Vanilla/Cotton Candy), and Dreamsicle (Orange/Plum).

And finally — we added some nickel cock ring sets in several sizes. These solid metal cock rings are excellent for advanced cock ring users. Read our cock ring guide for useful info about how to get the most out of your cock rings!

Thursday, November 17th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

Whips and chains, really?

You’ve been curious for a while… or maybe your partner has been. Truth is, SM isn’t a matter of pain and being mean, it’s a thrilling play of power, sex, and creativity. Come join one of She Bop’s favorite sex and BDSM educators, Felice Shays, as she introduces you to the dynamics, toys, and tools found in the world of BDSM. With humor and straight talk, Felice will discuss the differences between abuse and SM, how safe = sexy, fantasy and role-play, wielding personal and physical power, conscious rough sex, and how to find and grow the seeds of your own desires without shame and with intense pleasure.

You will walk out of this class having (optional) hands-on practice with floggers, bondage, canes, and more, time permitting. The perfect class for beginners. Come alone or with a partner. All genders and sexual appetites welcome.

Known for her straight talk infused with humor, Felice Shays provides personal sexual and BDSM education across the US and Canada.

Rough Sex for Beginners: Consent and Desire

Sunday, June 26th — 7:30pm — $20

The sweet intersection of a slap and kiss. The rough and tumble of spank and caress, of commanding voice and gentle stroke, of laugh and growl. Does this sound like you? Or wish it could be you?

Come join hugely popular sex and BDSM educator Felice Shays as she teaches you to use your hands, mouth, toys, and imagination to delve deep into what is often taboo and always crazy-hot. Felice will address what it is to take and give power –as men and as women — and how we get to lose society’s prescriptions as we cross the bedroom threshold.

We will explore communication, emotional limits and release, safety, partnered positions, head-space, anatomy, dirty talk, and helpful items. Throughout the workshop, Felice will share provocative techniques on how to find and express your own desire, how to push through fears that might be preventing you from discovering new sexual and sensual highs, and of course, she will teach you how to spank, slap, restrain, and more.

All genders, ages and individuals and couples all and always welcome. Bring your questions and your curiosity.

This class has already taken place. Thanks for attending!

Kinky merit badges for the scout in you

Maybe it’s because I’m a former Girl Scout, but when I came across these kinky merit badges, I knew I had to share them. The above badges are entitled “Collared,” “Flogging,” and “Gags,” but there are many, many more. The badges have iron-on backing and are incredibly detailed. The kinks represented on the badges range from the common (spanking) to the very specific (high heel worship!).

There are so many ways these badges could be used. They could be used as rewards, of course, or as a way to advertise one’s skills and attract partners. As Angel wrote,

All I could think of was a naked sub wearing nothing but a boy scout / girl scout merit badge sash with a couple of missing badges, looking nervously about and wondering which badge they would earn today.

The badge creators put a lot of thought into their enterprise. On their site, they explain the thought processes behind the badges:

We thought seriously about creating a book similar to the scout handbook on how each badge should be earned but ultimately felt that wasn’t the right way for us to go . . . The badges could be awarded for both a giver and receiver and we’ve put a lot of effort into making them as pansexual and gender non-specific as possible so that no-one would feel that they’re being excluded in any way.

I just think this is so cool. What do you think — would you sport a kinky merit badge (or several)? Can you think of some creative uses for them?
