Fun Factory Bi Stronic Fusion

February 11, 2016

When Fun Factory released the Stronic Eins, we were collectively blown away by it's exciting contributions to the world of sex toys. And, we have never looked back - the pulsation programs that Fun Factory's Stronic toys provided were nothing short of ground breaking in the world of sensation toys. Now, Fun Factory is back with a new design which includes both the pulsations of their classic design with a vibrating external portion to the toy. Enjoy thuddy movement plus delightful vibration patterns outside the body, thanks to their quality re-imagination of Rabbit style toys! With their signature magnetic charger, peppy colour options, and user-friendly buttons, the Bi Stronic Fusion is yet another soon-to-be-classic by Germany's Fun Factory!

Sili Saddle

The Stimulating Sili Saddle

February 10, 2016

You know, everyone and their mother has a 'great idea' for a sex toy (thanks, mom!) but it is truly unique when folks are able to actualize one of those great ideas! This brand-new, hand-made in Canada silicone toy might take a little imagination to get your, uh, head around, so we'll give you a couple of hints. Designed to be worn during penetrative play, the Sili Saddle provides a protective barrier and some sweet vulva stimulation to boot - but wait, there's more! The silicone back of this toy stays perfectly when placed against the bottom of a flared-base dildo so that you can go to town during harness play, get some nice grinding action for your own pleasure, and a little padding for when that dildo kick-back gets too intense.

Create Your Own Valentine's Truth

Create Your Own Valentine's Truth

January 30, 2016

Oh boy, Valentine’s Day again. If you’ve read our newsletters, tweets, or maybe swung by our shop for a Sunday hello, you probably know that we don’t think holidays like Valentine’s Day are truly all sunshine and roses. So often Hallmark-y gigs like this one do little but pressure folks to toe the line of western capitalist constructs of love, intimacy, and, of course, spending. Which is the pits. With the dollar falling at an alarming rate, and the drudgery of winter stretching ahead for many more weeks, Valentine’s feels like an easy target for our anti-capitalist-blues. But, as with so many things, what happens on February 14th is really just whatever you decide to do. Maybe it’s one of those days you don’t notice until two days later. Maybe it’s a day where you get together with an old pal and eat gratuitous amounts of takeout and discounted heart-shaped chocolate. Maybe it’s a day you go whole-hog on, complete with rose petals and bubble baths and whispering sweet nothings to a special someone.

Reducing ideas to launching points to create your own truths is powerful stuff, and we hope that, whatever your socialized ideas are about Valentine’s Day, to try and whittle the idea down to whatever it is that genuinely works for you, and cling tightly to that truth. Really, the same can be said for our genders, sexual orientations, life goals, and relationship styles, but that’s a thought for another day. So, as purveyors of sexy delights, if your goals over the next few weeks include a hot new toy to play with, or a fresh bottle of your favourite lube, we’re here for you. And, we’re oh so invested in supporting you as you explore your truths.

The Best 15 Sex Toys of 2015

December 18, 2015

We truly have a place in our collective heart for every single sex toy, book, and DVD we carry. We make a point of not stocking anything we don't actively love, but we can't help but be more in love with some sex products more than others. We aren't interested in what sells the best or gets the most Twitter mentions, but we will proudly admit that our bias tends toward the indies and underdogs of the 'sex industry'. As we've always said, the only sex objects in our shop are the ones on the shelves, so let's take a moment to objectify the hell out of the best sex toys of 2015 in no particular order.

Vixen Aire Mustang

Vixen Aire Mustang

December 6, 2015

Whoa, Vixen. The new Vixen Aire Mustang features some notable design additions from the classic Mustang. Instead of their traditional flared base, the Vixen Aire Mustang features a base designed to contour against the wearer. Sculpted to massage against the wearer with a soft, cushioning sensation, the base also makse some serious magic happen: as the wearer presses against the base with their pelvis, it pumps air into the shaft. This results in a swelling at the base of the Mustang with each pump. Yes: swelling. Designed with harness play in mind, this dildo is an amazing new development in dildo science.

Sex is a Funny Word

Sex is a Funny Word

As adults who talk to other adults about sex every single day, we find that so much of the sex negativity we encounter - and that we all experience in one form or another - can be traced back to the insufficient, awkward, or downright misleading information we received about sexuality when we were young. We also talk to a lot of parents in our shop and we cannot tell you how impressed we are with how active and interested and responsible so many of you are trying to be with your kids around their sex education.

Erika Lust's XConfessions 4 DVD

Erika Lust's XConfessions 4 DVD

There are a thousand things we love about Erika Lust's films: the crowd-sourced fantasies, the attention to detail, the high-production values, not to mention the feminist ethic that goes into each and every one of her films. Just when we thought the series might start to fizzle out, XConfessions 4 is hotter and more visually engaging than the previous installments combined. Each of the ten films brings something special to this collection - from the food porn in "Eat With Me", to the 'first kiss' in Pansexual - and each vignette serves up a nice dose of charming plot to give all of the steamy hot sex some context. | View all of Erika Lust's titles

Hole Punch Toys

Hole Punch Toys

There was a time when almost all of the silicone toys we carried were completely made by hand and each and every one was unique. The size, density, and colour of each toy was unique - and each and every dildo was truly one-of-a-kind and a work of art. Now that the whole world have discovered the joys of non-porous, boil-able silicone, it is ubiquitous and more often than not, machines do the work of production - and sometimes design. Hole Punch Toys and other artisinal sex toy crafters are bringing back the best parts of the early days of silicone with often whimsical, always hand-made sex toys. | View all Hole Punch Toys

Best Sex Writing of the Year

Best Sex Writing of the Year

While this title may be the best sex writing of the year, we'll go out on a limb and say it is actually the best sex writing anthology we've seen since Cleis press initially introduced this annual title. Edited by local favourite (and sometimes CAYA workshop facilitator) Jon Pressick, this title has packed more sex educators, activists, and artists in than we ever thought possible. From Cory Silverberg's brilliant (and true) "We Need a New Orientation to Sex" to Morgan Page's essential "Crazy Trans Woman Syndrome", this year's best sex writing is beyond thought-provoking - it should be required reading for anyone interested in sex and sex culture. We found it downright inspiring. | Learn more about The Best Sex Writing of the Year

The Science of Sex

The Science of Sex

The surprising new science that will transform your sex life
Whether you're someone who enthusiastically identifies as a 'sex nerd' or you're someone who has spent some time in your life worrying that there's something about your sexuality that's not normal, Come As You Are is sure to be a ridiculously enlightening reading experience. Our co-op has always been extremely skeptical of sex research - it often tells you much more about the researcher than the subject - but Emily Nagoski's book takes the last fifty years of sex research and manages to explain it in a thorough, critical, and entertaining fashion. If anyone has ever told you that your body, or desire, or relationships is weird or wrong or fucked up, Come As You Are is here to tell you that you're okay, the person who told you that is wrong, and science can prove it. We liked this book so much, we're running Emily's 5 Dirty, Little Secrets from the Science of Sex workshop. | Read about Come As You Are: The Science of Sex

More Than Two Ethical Polyamory

More Than Two Ethical Polyamory

This is easily the most thorough and enjoyable guide to modern polyamory and non-monogamy that we've ever had the good fortune to read. Drawing from mainstream and poly-specific sources - and the authors' personal experiences - the authors effectively dispel some of the most common misconceptions about non-monogamous relationships (held by many practicing poly, even) and provide a whole world of ideas, tools, and self-reflective exercises to help you on your polyamorous journey. While the anecdotes have a heterosexual focus, the content of this book manages to not assume anything about the reader except a genuine interest in learning more about polyamory. This remarkable title covers everything from learning how to listen actively and communicate non-violently to figuring out how to negotiate schedules, safer sex, and childcare.
