She Bop is so proud to be a part of the Progressive Pleasure Club, a collective of indie sex shops that are committed to providing honest sexuality education and body-safe products to customers.
The community was founded by our friends Molly Adler and Matie Fricker, owners of Self Serve in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as a way for similar shops to share resources and support.
A press release went out yesterday introducing the Progressive Pleasure Club to the world, and Molly Adler was quoted explaining the group’s philosophy:
We believe everyone has a right to enjoy sexual pleasure in a smart and healthy way, and the PPC will educate customers about local, independent stores where they can feel safe shopping, and can trust the safety of the adult products they buy.
Currently the Progressive Pleasure Club’s network includes She Bop and several other shops from around the U.S. and Canada. Here’s a list of the current members:
- Early to Bed — Chicago, IL
- Feelmore 510 — Oakland, CA
- Good for Her — Toronto, ON
- Nomia — Portland, ME
- Oh My — Northhampton, MA
- Self Serve — Albuquerque, NM
- She Bop — Portland, OR
- Smitten Kitten — Minneapolis, MN
- Sugar — Baltimore, MD
- The Tool Shed — Milwaukee, WI
Future plans for the Progressive Pleasure Club include informing the public about the importance of body-safe sex toys, garnering support for small, local businesses, and lobbying sex toy manufacturers to stop using phthalates and toxins in their manufacturing.
