Good Vibrations Celebrates The Summer of Love Anniversary

Summer 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the ‘Summer of Love.’ This was the moniker given to a social movement that began in San Francisco where sexual liberation, revolution, and experimentation were the guiding principles of a generation rejecting the Viet Nam War and accepting alternatives to rigid gender and lifestyle expectations.


Good Vibrations is celebrating 40 years in business this year and it was no accident that our first store took off and became popular in San Francisco which has been the epicenter of sexual freedom. We have 9 stores now with 7 in the SF Bay Area including SF, Oakland, Berkeley, and Palo Alto CA and 2 on the East Coast in Brookline and Cambridge MA. We pride ourselves on meeting customers where they are at. Whether you are a beginner or novice to sex toys or very experienced and just curious about expanding your sexual repertoire, we love to help people on their journey towards sexual health, empowerment, and living their authentic sexual selves. We believe that pleasure is your birthright and we are committed to providing a safe, non-judgmental, and welcoming environment to shop for quality sex toys, sexual wellness products, and books providing trusted information and resources. Our stores, workshops, and events provide much needed spaces where people of all orientations and genders are free to express themselves and access products and information.

We are strongly committed to showcasing the highest quality, body safe, phthalate-free sex toys that we carefully curate while providing trusted information to assist in product selections. Books and guides are available at every location, all of which are approved by Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen, who has been directly involved training our staff and running our Education Department for over 25 years. Our online resources and sex information guides are available at to anyone looking to learn about our products and sexual health.
