In 2003, Ema Lyon and Wendy Lee expanded their woman-owned, sex-positive, sex toy business with a Dvice adult toys shop in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Like the other stores, this shop carries-out the D.Vice philosophy via a clean and bright, “pornography free zone”, filled with safe, healthy, and fun adult toys and sex gear.
While two women may have founded the D.Vice chain, both men and women shopping for adult toys in Australia will find what they want. They stock everything. From cockrings and vibrators, to dildos and strap-on harnesses. From lubricants to anal toys (and lubricants should be applied to anal toys!) All available in a shop that’s open seven days a week. Of course, D.Vice also sells online too. They offer fast and discreet shipping, delivering your order to anywhere in Australia ~ and the rest of the world.
Yet D.Vice’s commitment to creating a positive environment for adults to be able to purchase sex toys in goes well past a clean shop stocked with a great selection of safe and healthy adult toys and quality sex gear. It provides sex education.
The founders of D.Vice staff their store with knowledgeable and approachable employees who are able answer your questions; but D.Vice does much more than that. They offer monthly sex seminar workshops right in the shop!
The D.Vice SexWorx Seminars are led by sex educator Louise Bourchier. Bourchier is a Melbourne-based sex educator with a MPH (Master of Public Health) degree who runs workshops on sexual pleasure, sexual health, and sexuality for adult audiences. These aren’t the dry boring seminars your boss sends you to; this is fun sex ed for grownups, complete with a silk and velvet vulva puppet, anatomy diagrams, and, of course, sex toys.
Whatever the topic of the SexWorx Seminar, there’s always a focus on the fun and pleasure, the health and safety ~ as well as the areas most missing from most sex talk: sexual confidence, relationships, and communication.
The next sex seminar for grownups is Tips & Toys for Couples. It will be held March 18, 2014, from 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM. The cost to attend the seminar is $15, and that includes a show bag and discounts. There are worse ways to spend an evening. (Like you could be with a partner who doesn’t know anything about sex toys ~ and doesn’t want to learn. Ugh.)
People of all genders, in any relationship status, of any sexual orientation are invited to attend the SexWorx seminars ~ and visit the Australian sex toy shop in general.
