Babeland Turns 20 This Year!

Twenty years may seem like a long time, but the work of helping people choose sex toys never gets old. We (Rachel and Claire) opened the first Babeland store in 1993 in Seattle with a cigar box for a cash register and a vision of a space where women would have open, serious, and fun talk about their sex lives. Our first customers were a couple who drove down from Canada because they were so eager to buy a strap-on they didn't mind the four-hour drive to pick one out in person, in a store that didn't give them the creeps. We can still remember our excitement as they made their choices!


Over the years we've met many amazing people and are constantly inspired by their bravery in seeking sexual fulfillment. It does take bravery, because we still live in a world where a lot of parents are too shy to talk about sex, where schools teach kids abstinence only, where doctors get 40 minutes of sexuality training, and where most of us are worried about how we look or sound to let ourselves go a little crazy in the bedroom. To get good at sex takes trial and error, helpful advice and a real willingness to take risks.


So raise a glass (or your favorite sex toy!) to twenty years of bravery, sharing, loving, and growing. And now, let the celebrations begin!
