- The Invisible Orientation October 30, 2014
Julie Sondra Decker's Invisible Orientation is a much needed and welcomed resource that explores asexuality. As she clearly expresses, this book is intended to be an introduction: you will find a wealth of writing dedicated to breaking down misconceptions about asexuality, and exploring the possibilities of asexuality. This book is helpful for folks interested in exploring asexuality as a personal orientation, and/or interested in supporting asexual people by learning more about this orientation- important in a world where asexuality is so often denied and invisibilized. | Read more about The Invisible Orientation
- Lelo Luna Bead Vibrating Kegel Exerciser October 21, 2014
We're not sure what's more shocking- a pressure responsive vibrating PC exerciser, or a battery powered vibrator by Lelo! Powered by one AAA battery, Lelo's Smart Bead has a lot of exciting possibility. While pelvic floor exercises don't have to happen with any products, many find kegel or duotone balls helpful for reminding them that it's time to do their pesky (but oh so helpful!) exercises. Further, it can be helpful having something to hold onto while contracting and relaxing muscles, whether that's a set of Luna Beads, or Aneros' prostate massagers. The Smart Bead takes this process up a seriously nerdy notch. Turn the toy on, insert it inside the body, and contract your PC muscles when the toy vibrates, relax when the vibrations stop. | Read more about Lelo Luna Bead Vibrating Kegel Exerciser

- Hot, Wet and Shaking October 2, 2014
How I Learned To Talk About Sex
While Hot, Wet and Shaking is Kaleigh Trace's first book, readers may already be familiar with her writing from her coil-bound zine, Every Body's Doing It, or her fantastic blog, The Fucking Facts. With prose that is powerful and sensitive, bold yet welcoming, Trace thoughtfully brings together stories from the many intersections of her life as a sex-positive feminist queer person with a disability living and working in Halifax. Trace's ability to regale readers with vibrant stories while also engaging us in processing and unpacking what she learned from them is a talent that makes this book such a positive and affirming read. Part memoir, part sexual theory, one hundred percent hard to put down! | Read more about Hot, Wet and Shaking
- October Newsletter: Trans-Can October 1, 2014
Our technology had lead us astray down overgrown and flooded roads where cows actually do look at you funny because no one ever drives past them. We’d been directed to provincial parks swept away years ago by floods, now only inhabited by birds that certainly sounded carnivorous, even if they actually weren’t. Our flawed maps also lead us into the path of Clara Hughes’ mental health tour (repeatedly!) to the point where we worried that she thought we were creepily following her. We weren’t. When people ask us to tell them about this bizarre Co-operators-funded summer tour we just did, we almost never quite know what to say. | Read more about October Newsletter: Trans-Can

- Back To Sex School September 27, 2014
While many students absolutely dread the beginning of the school year, our friends and fans universally look forward to our fall workshop season. If you’ve never been to a Come As You Are workshop before, there are a few things you should know. Most importantly, we do not teach the workshops we hold in our shop. Instead, we scour the Earth for educators, authors, activists, artists, and academics who have a depth of knowledge about the subjects they teach. | Read more about Back To Sex School
