As a transgender person myself, I know how difficult it can be to find the perfect toy. I also know how hard it can be to find a place to get my gear besides online – and lets be real, that's not ideal for everyone, especially those who live with family or people you haven't come out to. At the same time, it can be very daunting to step into your local sex shop.


A common misconception when it comes to sexual health stores such as Our Pleasure is that everything sold within is purely of sexual nature. While it's always awesome to get some sexy toys to experiment with, there are also many things that a store like Our Pleasure can provide to help alleviate gender dysphoria, the physical and/or mental discomfort that transgender individuals may experience due to their birth-assigned sex and gender not matching.


-For transmasculine individuals, we carry or can order in packers, packing underwear, STPs, dildos/dongs, and FTM strokers.


-For transfeminine folks, we carry or can order in dilators, kegel balls, vibrators, hair reduction creams, corsets, and lingerie.


We all know how scary it can be to walk into a sex shop, and that fear can be even greater as a transgender person. Helping people find the toy or product that is the right fit for them is our job, and we are trained to be sensitive and accommodating to those in the LGBTQ+ community. We are given extensive education so that we can give the best quality service we can and have very firm policies on inclusion and confidentiality – plus it definitely doesn't hurt to have those in the community working in-store that might have a bit of extra knowledge to help you find what you're looking for.
