Yup… I stepped off the ledge and talk about all sorts of things, including dildos, strap-on harnesses, surviving cancer, and caring for assault survivors. We packed a lot into the conversation!
In town from New York, it’s the triumphant return of renowned sex educator, Blush representative, and MN native Ducky Doolittle! Ducky joined Colleen and Kelly in the GNS studio for a chat about everything from Ducky’s incredible service to sexual assault victims to staying sexual through life’s trials to artisanal dildos.

Last month I struggled with a sense of aimlessness. I am now about five months into remission and that feeling still exists to some extent but has been overtaken by a sense of doom. Thankfully I am not moving through my days feeling depressed. I […]
I’m presenting ‘Sex For Survivors: Healing After Trauma’ at Smitten Kitten. There will be limited seats but please know getting there is the hardest part. Once we start, there’s lots of love and ideas for how to squeeze more out of your lovely life. April […]
Howdy! Welcome to my February roundup. You can by the date that I almost missed it this month! Working in the sex toy industry means I get clobbered with work every February by perverted Valentines who need vibrating doo-dads. Bless their hearts. __________YUM__________ I am […]
I must admit, I have a lot of admiration for jessica and her work as an activist and educator. We have shared the stage together on a sex education conference keynote panel. We bump into each other as we present at corporate engagements and industry expos and conferences. […]
I currently work in the tiny industry of pleasure products. In the past, I have worked in the emergency room so when people in the pleasure product industry start taking themselves too seriously I remind myself (and sometimes them) that we sell sex toys. We sell pleasure. This should be fun! We can be kind, thoughtful and decent. Unlike in the emergency room, no one is going die and our problems are small.
On a good day, we can inspire people to find more joy in their lives and bodies. Our work best serves the world when we drop our egos, get real, and tune in to the individuals who buy our products. Consumers are king. We are nothing without them.
It was about a decade ago that I met the SheVibe team and for the first time felt like I had found people who truly understand what I have been saying all these years. Simply put, they are nice people who have found a way to bring more joy into the world through sex toys. They are super creative and geeky. I have spent a lot of time (and yet not enough time) eating good food with them, having long conversations, digging deep into our collective curiosities, and just enjoying them as people.
When cancer sideswiped me a few months ago they were right there with me. Sending care packages full of cute socks, self-care items, and comfort foods.
That said, I’d like to publically say THANK YOU. I encourage anyone looking for a place to buy sex toys to check them out. The team at SheVibe really listens to their customers. They are wholeheartedly free of judgment and preconceived notions about the people who visit their site. They are good in their hearts and I am lucky to call them friends.
(This is part two of a series where I get to say thank you. I have a lot of people to be thankful for.)
