    A.J. is a Queens, NYC native living in Seattle. They identify as a Glitter Butch, and their favorite color is sparkles. They fell madly in love with Babeland at the ripe ol' age of 20 when they came in to buy their first strap-on harness and dildo. They have been a manager at Babeland since 2011, and have enjoyed every single moment since. They want you to know that radical consent is sexy.

    I'm a Southerner happily living in New York City studying Gender Studies and Queer Theory. My life revolves around body and sex positivity and I am so happy to be working at place that promotes both! I have been shopping at Babeland since I moved to New York and couldn't be happier that my dream job came true. I write a zine called The Woman Question and eat more cheese then you knew was humanly possible. I only wear black.

    My life's passion has been talking and writing about sex. I've written several sexual self-help books, including The Many Joys of Sex Toys, Sexy Mamas, and The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex. On a personal note, I believe Prince's music is the lyrical equivalent of sex. Plus, I'm the proud single mom of two fantastic daughters, and we are lucky to live up on the beautiful north coast of California.

    I ordered my very first vibrator from Babeland.com years ago, and was super excited when I discovered the brick-and-mortar Babeland stores upon moving to New York. I've been a Sex Educator/Sales Associate since January of 2010, covering shifts at all three NYC stores, and I love getting to know each store's unique customers and helping them find answers to their questions and toys they'll love. Outside work, I spend my time reading, hunting for cool stuff in antique shops and thrift stores, baking cupcakes, reading feminist blogs, planning theme parties, and performing with my improv troupe.

  • Avital

    Workshop Coordinator, NYC
    Favorite sex toy: Magic Wand

    As a fifth grader, I taught my entire cabin at summer camp about masturbation, complete with diagrams, so I was obviously destined to be here! When I am not teaching through Babeland and overseeing the fabulous workshop program, I am writing, performing, creeping on French Bulldogs, and listening to Wu Tang Clan.

  • Chavon

    Sex Educator/Sales Associate, Brooklyn
    Favorite Sex Toy: Octopussy

    I started my sex positivity journey in my teens and decided that I wanted to help spread sexual health awareness and promote great sex to all that I came across. Naturally, my adventures lead me to Babeland's door and I have been here since Fall of 2012. In my spare time you can catch me walking all over the city and dancing around the pole at my favorite studio.

    Favorite Sex Toy: We-Vibe Tango

    I'm a Pisces, and I enjoy long walks on the beach. I started working in sex education as an undergraduate at NYU, and I have wanted to work at Babeland since I was a baby-faced sophomore because Babeland has really been a wonderful resource to me and my friends all these years! When I'm not sharing my enthusiasm about sex and sex toys, I can be found in the lab teaching physics or hovering over my latest MATLAB script.

    I'm a native New Yorker who's transplanted to the Bay Area via Music City, USA. I've spent this wonderful life exploring, celebrating and writing about the sexual panorama. I am thrilled to be a part of the Babeland family doing work I love for a company I care about. Though I spend way too much time in front of a computer, I also enjoy the 3 B's — burlesque, boxing and baking. I am semi-retired from performing, but can be coaxed back by a rhinestone-encrusted costume and good wig. I enjoy being in the ring as much as I enjoy watching boxing, and am at my finest when whipping up a batch of baked goods.

    Sex Educator / Sales Associate, NYC
    Favorite Sex Toy: Njoy Pure Wand

    Before I worked at Babeland, I was always a sex toy ambassador for all my friends. I'd bring them into the store, show them around, and help them pick out their first toys. I'm proud to officially be a Babeland sex educator! When I'm not gushing enthusiastically about sex toys, I can be found doing really geeky things: playing video games, reading comics, going to conventions, and being a nerd-burlesque superhero.

  • Jen

    Chief Operating Officer, Seattle
    Favorite Sex Toy: Wahl 7-in-1

    I’m Babeland’s COO and I am based in Seattle WA. I hope to help Babeland reach more people and change more lives. In my spare time I drink coffee while complaining about the weather in Seattle, and wonder how many Great Danes are too many.

    I started working at Babeland in the fall of 2010, after admiring it from a distance for many years. I grew up on Long Island, where I learned to love swimming in the ocean, but never really developed an accent. I've mostly lived in Brooklyn since 2004, but spent some time going back and forth from the Bay Area, trying to make up my typical Libra mind on where to live. My favorites include fancy coffee, cheap accessories, foul mouths, and riot grrl culture. When I'm not at Babeland, I spend a lot of time brainstorming sex toy inventions, collecting clutter, cooking salty garlicky foods, and trying to escape an endless supply of dog hair courtesy of my Jindo dog, Oso.

    I asked my mom what sex was when I was three-years-old, and the rest is history! I'm a passionate, loud, queer, femme dancer and educator. I love facilitating movement experiences for people of all ages and abilities and I find that my dance work and my sex education work are really connected - it's all about knowing, loving, and affirming your body, despite all the messages we get telling us not to! I can't think of a better place to do this work than with the fierce and fabulous babes of Babeland.

    Sex positivity and sharing information about sexual health are two of my favorite things about working at Babeland. I've been a sex educator with Babeland since the autumn of 2012 and love getting to spend my time thinking about how to MacGyver sex toys to make the most fun for every body! I've been known to leave glitter everywhere I've been. Other things that get me going? Soy lattes, 90's grrrl rock and high heels.

My passions in life are cheese, chocolate, animals, and making the people I love laugh.

    I purchased my very first vibrator from Babeland LES back in the day, and ever since I've been in love. I am so happy to be part of an amazingly knowledgeable, sex positive team. The only things I love as much as sex toys are dogs, coffee, dive bars, the Simpsons, and King of the Hill ("I sell sex toys and sex toy accessories"). I have two Simpsons tattoos. One is of Frank Grimes and the other is a stonecutters symbol. When I'm not at Babeland I'm volunteering for RightRides or upping the punx.

    I'm a fiercely sex-positive radical queer feminist, and I love having a job where I get to encourage and empower people to seek out pleasure. I am also a sex educator at a non-profit where I work primarily with middle school age youth. When I'm not busy talking about sex (rarer and rarer moments these days), I am likely painting, reading my horoscope (or asking about yours), searching out the nearest coffee joint, or movin' on a dance floor.

    I am a Brooklyn resident originally from Maryland. I moved to New York right after high school and fell in love with Babeland after I ran into the LES store one day and impulse-purchased a Hitachi magic wand. I make erotic collage, paper sculptures and dance performance art in my spare time, and love going to DIY show spaces and parties. I love moldy cheeses, my fat cat Trudy, and spicy margaritas.
