Valentine's Day is coming... are you?

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and what better way to show yourself or your partner some love than by gifting them with a sex toy that's guaranteed to satisfy, and, unlike a box of chocolates, will keep on giving. Instead of purchasing these gifts through Amazon or one of the other large male-owned corporations, why not support a women-owned business with wholesome values and initiatives? We did our research and found a list of amazing women-owned sex shops that promote sexual health, pleasure, and empowerment, and also happen to have some pretty awesome sex toys available!

If you're in the market for a vibrator, sex toy, or lingerie, we encourage you to put your money where your 'you know what' is, and support one of these female-fronted retailers! This list even includes our top picks from each of the vendors, so you can easily find the perfect gift for yourself or your loved one.
