As you’ve no doubt noticed, crowdfunding campaigns have exploded in the last couple of years. I’ve seen some pretty ridiculous ones, honestly. But this? This is absolutely necessary, and I want to see them get every. single. cent.


Burlesque Toy Shop is an independent retailer focused on bringing only quality toys to consumer’s bedrooms. Everything they stock is body safe, and they pay attention to build quality too. Do you know how rare that is? It’s really fucking rare, you guys.

Right now, Burlesque is raising money to open a brick and mortar shop in Philadelphia. They’re planning to host on-site sex education classes, and staff their boutique with full-time, gloriously knowledgeable staff. Do you know how hard it is to find a full time job at an adult store? Do you know how impossible it is to find a body safe adult store, one that cares about its staff and clientele? It’s an amazing vision and would be a huge asset to the community. I hope you’re as excited about it as I am!

Some of the perks for donating include original erotic poetry, a pasty and g-string set, my holy grail vibe (the Lelo Mona 2), and even a boudoir photo shoot. Plus, there’s the perk of knowing that you’re helping to install an amazing community resource. So, go donate!
