About Good Vibes

The Good Vibes blog has been around for over a decade, bringing interesting articles on sex, reviews, and erotica helping folks choose body-safe sex toys.  This may seem like a long time on The Internet of Things until you realize that Good Vibes has been creating women-friendly, shame-free stores for 37 years.  We are THE premiere feminist sex toy company in the U.S.  As of February 2014, we  have eight (!) stores, seven in the Bay Area & one in Brookline, MA.

We are still a feminist-run sex toy company.  Our identity as a feminist company has never changed.  What changed was the business & we lead the way:  in 2001 we were the first sex toy company to refuse to sell toys with phthalates; we were the galvanizing force behind the pressure on  manufactures to adopt body-safe materials and sustainable manufacturing processes.  Secondly, we increased revenue-sharing  through our GiVe Program, supporting organizations like NARAL & Planned Parenthood as our business grew.  Lastly,  we were the first toy store to push for sustainable manufacturing processes that are kinder to the earth.

But we haven’t been all business all these years; we have also changed the culture of pleasure, kink,  sex, & sex education though actions like creating “Masturbation Month,” as a sex-positive response to the firing of then-Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders.  Dr. Elders was fired for saying that, “masturbation should be discussed as part of young peoples’ sex education.”

We would love to hear from you, follow you, and learn more about you.  Let’s be friends!

And because we so deeply believe that #pleasureisyourbirthright  we made it the official company hash tag.  Feel free to tweet at us, tag us, suggest a board we should follow on Pinterest & like us on Facebook.  We often give our social media friends special last-minute perks & deals; we’d hate for you to miss those.
