Good Vibrations Declares August “Anal Pleasure Month”

Pioneering Sex Positive Retailer Celebrates Summer with Educational Events and Workshops

San Francisco, CA -- (July 27th, 2012): Good Vibrations, the trusted San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, has declared August “Anal Pleasure Month” and scheduled a month of workshops and events to bring pleasure to the people.

Good Vibrations renamed August in order to help people discover how to enjoy the many pleasurable and safe kinds of anal play. Despite its prevalence in practice it is still considered taboo, and many people don't have access to clear, accurate information on the topic. Adults in California and Massachusetts can explore this and other themes with Good Vibrations-trained sex educators in the month of August, or visit Good Vibrations’ how-to page (in English and Spanish) for detailed information and resources.

“Anal sex is a lot like cooking. Some people figure it out through trial and error, but the best way to have a great time is to get a little information,” says Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist Dr. Charlie Glickman.

On Wednesday, August 1st at 6:30pm, Good Vibrations Brookline Massachusetts store will host a “Beginner Butt Play” workshop explaining the ins and outs of anal sex in a comfortable, conversational setting. Guests of all sexual orientations and genders are invited to learn about safety, comfort, cleanliness, choosing anal toys, and more. In addition, the first ten attendees will receive a free vibrator.

On Tuesday, August 7th Good Vibrations’ Staff Sexologist and Chief Cultural Officer Dr. Carol Queen presents a free “Ask Our Docs” workshop on anal play and pleasure. Get the tools to enjoy hot, fun, safe anal play and learn the essential ingredients of anal pleasure, including tips on getting started, how to combine backdoor fun with other kinds of play, and beyond.

Good Vibrations Sex Educator Sales Associates are extensively trained in sex education and can help anyone at any time with questions about anal health and pleasure, or any other sexual topic. With a wide selection of anal toys and educational books on the subject, Good Vibrations is a sex-positive resource for adults eager to explore and has been for 35 years.

Other exciting educational events in the month of August include free workshops on exploring erotica and porn, a Mommy’s Playdate for moms who want to learn how to keep it sexy post-kids, Fifty Shades of Play intro to BDSM, Strap it to Me with Dr. Charlie Glickman, Lotions and Potions for Fun, and more. More in-depth workshops on a variety of fascinating topics are also offered for a small fee at Good Vibrations Polk Street store.
