No matter what you’re looking for—vibrators, dildos, butt toys, safer sex supplies, books or DVDs—their hand-picked and staff-reviewed selection is simply the best.

Skorts were my best friend as a kid, especially during the summer months.  The skirts on the outside were short enough to keep me cool and nice enough to wear to a friend’s birthday party, while the built-in shorts underneath allowed for unrestricted jungle-gym antics without having to worry about flashing the entire school.

There’s a brand-new building going up in my neighborhood, about a block from my subway stop. I’m not even going to bother explaining what that means. If you're a woman, you know the deal. As I approach, I feel my shoulders rounding forward, my gait shortening and shuffling. My eyes are Super-Glued to the sidewalk. I want to hide, but I can’t get to the subway unless I go down this particular block, and here they are, and here comes the low whistle ... Read More

So, it's right around the bend: the season of the flesh. It is about to be (already kind of is?) super sticky out, which means it's time to try on your old shorts/skirts/dresses to see if they still fit/look for an excuse to buy some cuter and trendier ones.  In being a people-watcher and shameless ease-dropper, I can't help but notice how much judgement is so casually thrown on women's dress--pretty much all the time, but especially in the summer, and ...
