welcome

Welcome to Come As You Are Co-operative! We are the world's only worker-owned co-operative sex shop, and we have a fundamentally anti-capitalist, and sex-positive approach to sexual pleasure, health, and education. Unlike most sex shops, we don't make commission and we don't profit from your purchases.  We try, read, or watch every sex toy, book, and DVD we stock in-store and online - and we ONLY carry products that we truly believe in.

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 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
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

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.
