We-Vibe and Valentine’s Day have been going hand in hand ever since the Original We-Vibe launched in 2008. Each of their “couples’ toys” have been designed with partners in mind, and they’ve only gotten better over time.
The newest addition to the We-Vibe family is the Chorus, which can be used with the We-Connect app for long-distance lovers, adventurous nights on the town, or any time one partner wants to take control. It’s the same size and shape as the best-selling Sync, but with better Bluetooth connectivity and an intuitive squeeze remote. The tighter you squeeze, the stronger the vibration!
Dame Alu + Grip Lube Bottle Sleeve
Lubricant may not be as flashy as a technologically advanced smart vibe, but a lube as thoughtfully formulated as Alu is certainly a gift to many! Moisturizing aloe leaf juice combines with anti-inflammatory ingredients like hemp seed, quinoa seed, and green tea extracts to create a water-based lube that provides comfort and glide. Alu is also pH-balanced and comes in a convenient pump bottle.
Since it’s a special occasion – why not upgrade your lube?! Grip, a textured silicone sleeve, hugs your Alu bottle to keep it within your grasp during slippery situations. We’re partial to the pink Grip for Valentine’s Day, but any of the three colors go well with Alu’s pretty dark blue container.
Spartacus Heart Crop
For all of our kinky sweethearts out there, we couldn’t resist including this heart-tipped crop in metallic red leather. It is Valentine’s Day after all! Made by local company Spartacus, this well-constructed crop measures 25.5″ and has a rubber-wrapped handle for a comfortable and confident grip.
Crops make lovely tools for discipline and may be used as accessories for roleplaying. More than just a toy, a crop can be a symbol of power, and this one gives us mad Queen of Hearts vibes!
Vixen Creations Ranger
Vixen Creations VixSkin dildos are some of the most coveted items in our shop, and for good reason! The platinum-grade silicone used for VixSkin is like no other, offering a realistic feel, high degree of flexibility, and ability to retain body heat.
Just like the rest of the VixSkin line, the recently-released Ranger is truly “worth every inch” — and it certainly has plenty of girth to offer! This beefy buddy features a 2″ diameter head plus 6″ of insertable length. Ranger also has a suction cup base, making it anal safe, harness compatible, and lots of fun when stuck against a tiled shower wall!
Cherry Bombin’ Roadster Harness
What better to go with the cool black Ranger dildo than a shiny black rubber harness from Cherry Bombin’ Wear?!
Cherry Bombin’ Wear is a small womxn-owned business that makes sustainable and vegan sex and kink gear out of upcycled rubber tire tubes. The Roadster Harness, which is the newest addition to She Bop’s harness selection, fits up to 60″ hips and is supple and versatile. It can be worn as a two-strap style (framing the booty in a very sexy way), a single-strap “thong” style, or even without the dildo pad for a minimalist look.
Finally! A condom has arrived that is thinner than latex and even safer! Meet Unique, the first condom made from AT-10, a hypoallergenic polyethylene resin. This material is three times stronger than standard latex, but also three times thinner, so it feels like wearing nothing at all.
Perhaps the coolest feature of these condoms is the pull tab design, which helps them roll on correctly every time. Bonus points: they’re vegan, odorless, and come packaged with 3 condoms in a credit card format. Unique condoms are available in three sizes to accommodate a variety of folks: regular-sized Unique Pull, large-sized Unique Plus, and snug Unique SecureFit.
Pillow Talk Sassy
Searching for a high-quality vibrator with that romantic Valentine’s aesthetic, but on a budget? How about the pastel powerhouse known as the Pillow Talk Sassy?
This beauty has a powerful rumbly motor, curved tip for optimal G-spot or clitoral pleasure, and a flexible body. The classy quilted texture on the handle allows for a comfortable grip, and the control button is a sparkly Swarovski crystal. The best part: it’s only $54!
For folks who regularly experience yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis, Momotaro Apotheca’s signature salve may be a godsend. Momotaro Salve has excellent reviews, with people reporting less frequent vaginal infections and soothing relief from uncomfortable yeast and BV symptoms. It also works well to prevent irritation after sex or exercise, and naturally moisturizes during times when hormonal changes can cause extra dryness.
Momotaro only uses the highest quality ingredients, like goldenseal, calendula, and Oregon grape. 100% plant-based and certified organic, this salve is a welcome alternative to harsh chemical creams and OTC vaginal gels.
Diamonds may last forever, but stainless steel lasts a lifetime and can go in your butt. This gorgeous steel toy (which comes in a satin-lined box) is ergonomically designed to target the prostate (or G-spot!) with precision. A partner can hold the loop and gently rock the toy for unyielding pressure and pleasure. Alternately, it can be used for solo hands-free prostate stimulation by squeezing and releasing the pelvic floor muscles (aka anal kegels).
Whether your honey’s heinie is hankering for prostate stimulation, or you’re curious about pleasuring your own P-spot, we highly recommend the njoy Pfun plug!
Riverqueer Leatherwork Collar & Cuffs
Looking for a statement piece to show your kinky side or for something to adorn your beloved submissive? How about the eye-catching Moonbxy Collar from Riverqueer Leatherwork? This stunning collar features a satisfyingly heavy ring that may help a sub feel grounded or pacified. The oversized ring is also great for quick bondage options, especially when used with matching Rosemary Cuffs.
Just as with the Moonbxy Collar, the Rosemary Cuffs are available in black leather with silver nickel hardware or rust red with brass hardware. A perfect set for anyone who appreciates locally-made artisan gear!
