Share your story and support the Superhero Sex Shop Tour
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project- it has been such a blast reading and sharing your stories. I so appreciate your support of both me and the Superhero Sex Shop Tour. Good sex shops matter- let’s keep spreading the sex positive retail word!
Do you remember your first time… in a sex shop? Check out these stories:
Finally, the good people over at Lovehoney gave me the opportunity to share my story on their site
What is the “My First Time” project about?
Well, I’ve been getting so much great feedback and support from you all in response to the Superhero Sex Shop Tour fundraiser- thank you! The one question I keep getting is “what can I do to help?” Well, I decided to come up with a fun answer to that question so, in as simple terms as possible here it is:
What: Tell us about your first visit to a sex shop.
When: Any time between now and August 31st. (But you know you want to have fun with me ASAP!)
Why: To support the Superhero Sex Shop Tour Indiegogo campaign. As such, I ask that each post contain a link to the campaign.
Where: Preferably on your own blog, website or Tumblr so I can post the link to it here and show people how cool my friends (ie you) are. If you don’t have a site you can post your story here– either way I’ll promote the heck out of each and every one I get (isn’t promoting each other fun?!)
In talking to folks on the first leg of the Superhero Sex Shop Tour I found that the “my first sex shop” experience runs the gamut between “life-changingly awesome” and “humiliating terrifying” hitting most points in between. Where did your experience land? Here are some questions to get you started, feel free to use them (or not)
- How old were you?
- Who were you with?
- Where was the shop?
- What did you buy?
- Did you ever go back to that shop? Why or why not?
Tell us all about it! As people’s stories go up I will add the links (with post & site titles) to this page and promote them on my twitter and facebook. I will also keep an ongoing “First sex shop stories” collection posted on my Tumblr page.
One of the aims of the Superhero Sex Shop Tour is normalizing the sex shop experience. Right now it seems the humiliating experiences by and large outnumber the life-changing ones leaving the “sleazy sex shop” image to cloud most people’s’ view of the industry. It is my goal, in touring the Superhero Sex Shops, to educate consumers as to just how good sex shopping can be and to show retailers what the new standard in adult retail must become. By supporting the Superhero Sex Shop Tour you can help me take this important step in the process of creating higher quality, life-changing, adult retail- making more shops Superhero Sex Shops!
So, if you’re up for helping me save the world from mediocre sex, tell me about your first time in a sex shop! Go!
Please feel free to share this among your readers, friends, people you don’t like who may want to participate… basically anyone who may have been in a sex shop ever ;-)
