Sh! Founder Kathryn Howle & I
My goody bag!!! Eeek!
Words cannot describe the amount of fun I had when I attended the Sh! Womenstore’s 20th Anniversary.
Who knew they had been around for so long?
What I love about the Sh! brand, the founders, staff and stores, is that they are all so friendly and welcoming. Never have I experienced genuine customer service like this.
For those who have never heard of Sh! or don’t know in entirety what Sh! is all about, let me fill you in
“Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium was established on 1st April 1992. As the UK’s first female sex shop, Sh! founded itself as an antidote to sleazy sex shops and has since trail blazed the way for the whole of the sex industry to take a giant u-turn in how it views women’s sexuality.
Hailed in the press as “true pioneers” (The Observer Magazine) “ground-breaking” (Time Out) and “the best sex shop for women” (Time Out) , our mission has always been to create a comfortable, welcoming and informative atmosphere for women to browse and buy sex toys on line and in our London store, where guys are welcome to visit “as a guest” of a woman “
Sh! not only aims to offer the best selection of female sex toys sourced from around the world but they also design and manufacture their own range of regular and vibrating silicone dildos, strap on harnesses, bondage and personal lubricant that you won’t find anywhere else but in Sh! Online and London stores.
Sh! treats all womens’ sexuality as equal; so whether you are single, married, co-habiting or divorced, straight, lesbian or bi, a mother, disabled, a survivor of cancer, like to swing from chandeliers or prefer the missionary position, you’ll always be welcome at Sh!
Here are the Sh! commitments which I think their success’ are drawn from;
- Service is our top priority.
- We want women to feel good about their sexuality
- 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 first came across Sh! whilst wandering Hoxton after a Saturday morning meeting. All I remember is buckling the corner of Coronet Street and seeing a pink windowed building disguised as a shop front. When I walked in, I wasn’t sure what to expect, I was thinking maybe its a quirky gift shop or even a sweet shop, but alas! it was a sex store!!! Shock freaking horror! Ha!
I was firstly offered a cup of tea (well I never!) then I was left to my own devices (which I love about shopping) in which I revelled in playing with vibrators of all kinds, looking at corsettry, trying strap on’s and tasting the most delicious lubricant flavours I have ever come across. And these lubricants is what has kept me going back to Sh! because the taste doesn’t fade into bitterness within seconds….Its lasts a good few hours! Amazing
So back to the Sh! Anniversary event… held in the grande Cafe De Paris venue, oozing illegal amounts of class with its dark, velvet interiors and old school glamour feel, I was treated to a variety of provocative performances whilst Sh! employees dressed head to toe in silk ties, frills and other tantalizing costumes, cascaded the VIP floor with trays full of bondage accessories, paddles, powerful vibrators and lubricants of all types. I actually thought I had died and gone to heaven… then I was presented with the biggest and most exciting goody bag I have ever received. There were products in there I had never heard of but let me warn you, I am eager to try out.
Censor warning! Lol
