Toronto The Cold - Eye Weekly
March 29, 2009

I can tell you for certain that if you think sex in this city is repressed, cold and boring, the fault is entirely your own. Just about every day of the week there’s something saucy going on here where people of all orientations can get down and if you’d been reading correctly, you’d know that, because most of them get regular coverage right here.

Best Sex Shop - Now Magazine
October 28, 2008

If your ideal sex-shop experience involves dank lighting and a sweaty salesman behind the counter who licks his lips as you browse boob job porn, go to Yonge Street. If you like your dildo comparison shopping fun, easy and well-educated, Come as You Are is the city’s most free-thinking sex shop.

February 6, 2008

Erotic art still faces lingering disapproval.

Green lite - Toronto Star
April 21, 2007

Your organic cotton shirt and bag made of recycled billboard signs proclaim that you're an eco warrior. You drive a hybrid car, eat organic food and for good measure, buy carbon offsets because you still sometimes buy takeout in plastic. Is that enough?
