As you know, the first ever Rarely Wears Lipstick Awards were handed out on Friday night. While I spend a bit of time sorting out my write up of the evening and getting my mitts on a few photos, let me introduce you to another of the wonderful brands who featured in the winners goodie bags on the night. Today, it’s the turn of the Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium.
The first sex shop in the UK to be aimed at women, Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium was established in 1992 as an antidote to sleazy sex shops. Leading the way for adult businesses to change the way they view women’s sexuality, the Sh! mission has always been to create a comfortable, welcoming and informative atmosphere for women to browse and buy sex toys. Men are welcome to visit too, but only when accompanied by a female customer.
Our aim is to offer the best selection of female sex toys sourced from around the world. We also design and manufacture our own range of regular and vibrating silicone dildos, strap on harnesses, bondage and personal lubricant that you won’t find anywhere else but in our online and London stores. We believe sex toys are just that – TOYS, and that’s why you wont find any sleazy or naff standard sex shop fare such as blow up dolls or porn star dildos at Sh!
We treat all women’s sexuality as equal; so whether you are single, married, co-habiting or divorced, straight, lesbian or bi, in your 20’s 30’s 40’s 50′ 60’s 70’s or 80’s (our oldest customer so far is 88!) a mother, disabled, a survivor of cancer, like to swing from chandeliers or prefer the missionary position, you’ll always be welcome at Sh!
Service is our top priority. We want women to feel good about their sexuality and the Sh! Girlz are highly trained to be knowledgeable in, and to offer advice about all things relating to sex and sex toys. We believe that buying a sex toy – whether a vibrator, a dildo or an anal toy – should be an uplifting feel-good experience and that’s why we promise the advice and service we give will always be personal to you.
I asked them to sponsor the awards (before the shortlists were finalised) because I love the friendliness of the knowledgeable and open minded Sh! Girlz plus the fact that they will always offer to make you a cup of tea while you browse their Hoxton store. Their classes are educational, their stock is often eye opening, and it was lovely of them to give Rarely Wears Lipstick Awards winners a discount card each. I hope you will all pay them a visit and give them the love they deserve.
