Giving Feels Good!

We Know How Great It Feels...

...to fall in love, to discover a new erogenous zone, and to come so hard you see stars. But you know what feels even better? Coming for a cause. And chances are when you buy a Babeland toy, you're doing just that.


For over 20 years, Babeland has contributed to non-profits and organizations devoted to social change through our fundraising partnerships and community donations program.


You might wonder how buying a sex toy can change the world. While we like to joke that we're making the world a better place one orgasm at a time, we do try to go one step further by raising awareness and funds for causes that make a difference to our collective well-being.


Because we have four retail stores and a website, our customers are not always aware of our philanthropic efforts, which is why we'd like to keep you updated on this page.


In the past, we have contributed over $200,000 to over 300 organizations.


How Are Recipients Chosen?

We choose our recipients based on a variety of factors, most notably with input from our founders, our staff, and our customers. Not surprisingly, we are most passionate about efforts that raise awareness around issues related to sexual health, education, and civil liberties. However, you can't enjoy a healthy sex life in a vacuum (at least most of us can't), which is why we also support organizations related to the health and prosperity of our bodies and our planet. Here are just a few of the organizations we have supported :

What’s Happening This Year?

Sexuality Education Council Of The United States (SIECUS)


SIECUS has kept sex ed in the national conversation for fifty years, so we’re asking folks to “pay it forward” to the next generation, by giving Moregasm (perfect for those beginning their sexual journey) as a gift to a young person. For every Moregasm book Morgasm book and Moregasm Kit we sell during 2015, we will donate 10% to SIECUS. So whether it’s a graduation present or a quiet contribution to a student’s library, consider that what you are really giving is the gift of knowledge and sexual health.

Reproductive Rights


Babeland continues to work with amazing organizations to raise awareness around reproductive rights.


Lady Parts Justice launched “V to Shining V”, a grassroots campaign to get voters to remove politicians who continue to erode our reproductive freedoms. Look for fundraising events for Lady Parts Justice as the year unfolds, and get involved!

A Is For serves as an ally and advocate for organizations working to protect reproductive rights, utilizing social media to spotlight issues and encourage activism. Founded by actress and activist Martha Plimpton, comedian and co-creator of The Daily Show, Lizz Winstead, and the bassist from Babes in Toyland (how amazing is that!), Maureen Herman, along with several other fierce feminists.
