Co-op seeks discreet comrade for LTR.
Co-op seeks discreet comrade for LTR.
August 6, 2014

We're a ragtag triad of hardworking, sex-positive, anti-capitalist queers looking for that special someone to fulfill our wildest fantasies. We get off on nerdy fun, working long and hard hours to service our communities, and group scenes involving hardcore consensus-based decision making. Our collective turn-offs include capitalism, phthalates, and samples being left on display when they're actually out of stock. | Read more about Co-op seeks discreet comrade for LTR.

The Sexual Status Quo
The Sexual Status Quo
July 1, 2014

A blog post about why everyone should stop watching porn came up in our Twitter feed last week. People ask us constantly if they’ll become addicted to the Magic Wand. So many guys wonder why they can’t come or ejaculate faster than they want to with a partner. Our lives in the shop are filled with such similar and disparate questions. They all have the same answer, really. | Read more about The Sexual Status Quo

Swallow Your Pride
Swallow Your Pride
June 20, 2014

A few years ago, our local Business Improvement Association (in which membership is strangely mandatory) published a flyer to promote Pride week in our neighbourhood. Given that this area is oft referred to as 'Queer West', it makes a lot of sense for local businesses to acknowledge Pride from both a commercial and community perspective. Predictably, our local BIA chose a most unfortunate headline to express their gay pride that year:

Celebrating Pride Week!
$$$(Double Income No Kids)$$$

Pride means different things to different people. Pride can be a deadly sin or merely the warm glow you experience after a job well done. Pride as a summer event is meant to commemorate Stonewall, rejoice in sexual liberation, and celebrate the reluctant commercialization of gay and lesbian sexual orientations.

Trans Bodies, Trans Sexualities Workshop
June 15, 2014

With Tobi Hill-Meyer
Come to talk about bodies, language, behaviors, and desires (and coming!) - all presented with trans*, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming people in mind. Our communities have particular concerns as well as special opportunities for fun and frolic that are often left out of mainstream Sex Ed. We'll talk about what can be adapted for our bodies and how to do it. Here's a chance to learn about the care, feeding, and delight of your tingly bits (and/or those of your partner) in a safe and trans-positive environment. | Read more about Trans Bodies, Trans Sexualities Workshop
