Iconic brands Good Vibrations, Babeland & Magic Wand
Sponsor Lynn Comella’s Vibrator Nation Book

Events in Seattle, WA (Oct. Oct. 21st), Palo Alto (Oct. 28th), and Oakland, CA (Oct. 29th


Oakland, CA - Good Vibrations, Babeland, and Magic Wand are pleased to host author and Professor Lynn Comella’s upcoming book tour appearances. Join us at Babeland Seattle on Saturday October 21st at 7 pm with free cocktails, at Good Vibrations Palo Alto on Saturday October 28th at 4 pm with special guest Dr. Carol Queen, and at Good Vibrations Oakland on Sunday October 29th at 3 pm. Vibrator Nation is Comella’s  groundbreaking book that chronicles how sex-positive feminists revolutionized and reshaped the sex toy industry. This fun, and compelling event is not to be missed! Each of Comella’s events is sponsored by legendary retailers Good Vibrations, Babeland and Magic Wand, the iconic vibrator which is featured heavily in Vibrator Nation.


In the 1970s, a group of pioneering feminist entrepreneurs launched sex-toy stores Eve’s Garden and Good Vibrations as both commercial enterprises and hubs for educational and community resources. Later came a second wave, with Babeland and other shops. Vibrator Nation author Lynn Comella tells the fascinating history of how these stores raised sexual consciousness, redefined the adult industry, and changed women’s lives. This compulsively readable book has been featured in The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, and numerous other press outlets since its publication in early September.


Accompanying the rise of the women-owned sex-toy stores, the Magic Wand grew to become the most-recommended personal massager of all time, legendary for its power and “OMG”-worthy pleasure.


Both events are free and open to the public. Copies of Vibrator Nation will be available for purchase, as will the Magic Wand Original and Rechargeable. Lynn Comella will be there in person at both events and cocktails provided in Seattle. A raffle for a few free Magic Wands will be held at each event.

About Babeland

Claire Cavanah and Rachel Venning opened the first Babeland store in 1993 in response to the lack of women-friendly sex shops in Seattle. The store offers top quality products, a pleasant place to shop, and most of all information and encouragement to people who want to explore their sexuality. The store's popularity led to three more stores in New York, plus a thriving and educational website.
