- Project Open Door Seeks Trans Policy Advisors March 24, 2011
Project Open Door is currently seeking 5 trans individuals to join a team of Policy Advisors to help Toronto’s social service agencies develop and implement trans positive/ trans inclusive policies.
For this project we are specifically looking for trans people who are:
• skilled in facilitation
• knowledgeable about the social service sector
Project Open Door is a 519 initiative funded by the Metcalf Foundation to help support agencies that wish to develop policies that are relevant to and inclusive of Toronto's trans communities. Policy Advisors will be trained to work directly with Toronto social service agencies to draft policies and to help put them into practice.
The first training component of this program include six weekly training seminars from 10am – 5pm. Participation in this program begins Tuesday April 26th 2011. The last seminar is June 7th 2011. (There is no seminar on May 24th) Participants must be able to attend all seminars. All seminars will be held at The 519 Community Centre. Participants will be paid for attending these seminars.
The second component of this program involves working directly with agencies to help them develop and implement trans policies. The Project is offering these sessions to agencies throughout 2011, but we cannot guarantee how many of these sessions you will be asked to join. You will be paid per session.
HOW TO APPLY:
Resumes with cover letters must be submitted by Friday April 1 2011 at 5:00pm.

- The Valentine's Newsletter 2015 January 29, 2015
Our passion for Valentine’s Day stems from the fact that it is the only day of the year that pays any kind of attention to what we do. On every other day - be it Earth Day or Christmas Day or Grandparents’ Day or Tuesday - romantic love is almost never on the menu despite the way our society centralizes and assumes romantic love as a default - but somehow not very important state of being. | Learn more about The Valentine's Newsletter 2015
- Throwback Thursday: The Original Je Joue January 8, 2015
Before the FiFi or the MiMi or even the SaSi, there was the original Je Joue. Largely forgotten by modern day sex bloggers, this beast was one of the most impressive and most expensive sex toy endeavours we’ve ever encountered. At the time, we lauded this invention as an early foray into the (still largely unrealized) world of teledildonics, but it was literally revolutionary on several other fronts. From its iPhone -style fonts and digital display to its moving and vibrating silicone pad to the uploadable and sharable beats, the original Je Joue blew our minds, and for good reason. There’s nothing quite like the original Je Joue around these days, but you can see hints of it in the later Je Joue SaSi, Lelo Ora, and the newest We-Vibe Plus (with their new iPhone/Android app).| Learn more about Throwback Thursday: The Original Je Joue

- December Newsletter: All We Really Want For The Holidays December 4, 2014
We have a strict policy about not ever telling people in our shop what toys, books, or DVDs we think they ought to like or purchase. We barely express our own personal preferences, and we really dig our heels in when people ask us what our bestselling products are - the irony being that our most popular items are and have always been the single condom, the misc SKU, and expedited shipping. | Learn more about December Newsletter: All We Really Want For The Holidays

- 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. | Learn 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. | Learn more about Lelo Luna Bead Vibrating Kegel Exerciser
