    New product round-up for August

    We picked up three new dildos from Happy Valley this month: Wilde, Fuze Tango, and Jet. Wilde is based on the design of Harmony, but a bit longer and thicker. The Fuze Tango is just like the double-ended Tango, only it’s made of shiny black silicone. Jet is a semi-realistic dildo with balls that comes in either blue or purple. What do these toys have in common? They’re all great for harness and partner play! Our newest vibe is Zizo, a firm silicone G-spotter. Its sensual shape is smooth and comfortable, and its 12 vibration modes are both powerful and near-silent. For your butt, we have the new Aneros Helix Syn. Based on the design of the super-popular Aneros…

    What We Bop: Glass

    If you’ve been to She Bop, 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 butt plugs are more than just beautifully-shaped hunks of glass — they are incredibly stimulating pleasure objects. These eye-catching toys are handcrafted in an intricate glassblowing process. It sometimes begins with a pool of hot, molten glass, which is gathered out by hand, on a steel rod; it can also begin with pre-made tubes of glass that are heated over a torch. The glass is then twisted and manipulated into its final shape, colored, and carefully cooled.…

    How to choose an anal toy

    Anal play can add variety to your sexual repertoire, not to mention awesome pleasure and enhanced orgasms. You know what especially rocks about anal play? Anyone can enjoy it! The anal opening is full of sensitive nerve endings that just love to be stimulated. Inside the butt, there is even more fun to be had. Many folks with vaginas experience anal pleasure because the clitoral legs extend to the anus. Most folks with penises are blessed with a prostate gland, which can facilitate intense orgasms when stimulated. Of course, we are big fans of utilizing sex toys during anal play. Introducing toys is a good way to experiment with the many sensations…

    The history of sex toys

    Have you ever wondered how sex toys came to be? Well, the story involves dubious medical conditions, goat eyelids, hilarious magazine ads, dragon tongues, and a cast of characters that ranges from a former police officer to a ventriloquist. Intrigued? Read on… A long time ago — 1000 A.D. Nobody knows quite when the dildo was invented. It likely dates all the way back to the Upper Paleolithic period. Phallic objects from this period are sometimes labeled by archaeologists as “batons,” but they might very well have been used for sexual stimulation. One particular 20-centimeter siltstone phallus, estimated to be about 28,000 years old, was discovered in a cave in Germany.…
