December’s Toy of the Month is…
EYE OF LOVE PHEROMONES!

Ok ok, you caught us.  It is not really a toy per se, but it is an amazing product that we would love to introduce you to.

Eye of Love is a high-quality sensual brand specially formulated for moments you could use an extra touch of romance and attraction.  Eye of Love is there to help provide tools to bring out the best in you and your surroundings to help you reach your maximum potential.

Their Arousing Pheromone Collection is designed to help men and women of all ages attract one another. Used daily, this will enhance a positive emotional reaction in any environment giving an added advantage. Although pheromones are odorless. Eye of Love has added special fragrances to enhance their effect and outcome. The perfume and pheromone work on two entirely different levels. The pheromone is odorless and stimulates a chemical reaction while the fragrance complements and enhances the particular mood.  Pick a fragrance and pheromone combination that fits you and your lifestyle.

In working with people on dating and relationship dynamics for almost 15 years, one of the most important components of attraction they mention is scent. Being attracted to someone’s pheromones can make or break the chemistry in a relationship or even if one ever begins. I was so thrilled when introduced to the Eye of Love products, initially because of the concept combining perfume and pheromones. What made me a loyal customer was the fragrance options that will offer something for everyone. I used my first small bottle of After Dark quickly because I just LOVED the way it smelled and never tired of it! I immediately ordered a larger bottle as it had become not only my signature scent but also because of the new connections with people I made since the time I had started wearing After Dark. It was natural for me to talk about the products since I was being told often how great I smelled and sensing an ease of those around me.  Feeling attractive and attracted to boost confidence and create a sexiness that others are naturally drawn to. I recommend Eye of Love products to clients and friends all the time and know you’ll be a fan just they are.” –

Sex is like boxing.

Consent is Necessary

Last week when we posted a blog about consent, we didn’t realize it would jump to the national forefront thanks to a certain presidential candidate showing that rape culture is still alive and kicking.  Twitter had to revive the hashtag #YESALLWOMEN because groping and harassment happen to pretty much all women.  This isn’t about politics, it is about women being able to live unharassed and in peace.

@kellyoxford jumpstarted the conversation with this tweet and created #notokay to highlight issues.

Women: tweet me your first assaults. they aren’t just stats. I’ll go first:

Old man on city bus grabs my “pussy” and smiles at me, I’m 12.

@kellyoxford

Five days later she tweeted:

Day 5: Every minute, people still tweeting me stories of their first sexual assault. I’ve read them. You are stronger than u think.

Reading through her feed is depressing in how commonplace this is.  Consent is an important issue and must be addressed, and specifically Affirmative Consent as we mentioned in the previous post.  Teach your children about consent.  Talk with your partner about consent.  Think about your mother, sister, wife, daughters, co-workers, and friends who may have had this happen to them and work to make the world a safer place for everyone, because not only women are affected by this, but they are bearing the brunt of it.

 

 

Consent is Sexy

If you were a product of the Texas public school system then you probably had very little to no sex ed.  I remember, very vaguely, a seminar during PE when I was in Jr. High.  I remember taking a health class in high school, but not a single thing of what that class pertained to.  This being Texas there was probably a focus on abstinence and the dangers of having sex.

Unfortunately, no one ever talked about consent.  This is a very important topic that needs to be discussed and Stanford recently announced that all new and transferring students will be required to attend a program entitled, “Beyond Sex Ed: Consent & Sexuality at Stanford.”

The new program is one of several educational initiatives designed to engage incoming Stanford students in conversations about the need for affirmative consent, the reality of sexual violence on campus and the collection of resources available to all students.

Hopefully, this will lead to more universities discussing consent as part of the intake process.  However, it would help if high schools or middle schools would begin the discussion.  As the below image shows, consent doesn’t have to be about just sex, it is about respecting other people’s boundaries.

Anything we can do to improve sex education is needed, and that includes discussions about consent.  Dreamers is committed to destigmatizing sex and discussions about sex. We are about sex positivity and that begins with positive affirmation for consent.

As Last Week with John Oliver pointed out last year, we need to do better about talking to our young adults about sex.  The clip is long but so worth it.

 

Because sex is like boxing, if one of the parties didn’t agree to participate, the other one is committing a crime.  — John Oliver

Bravo Stanford, here’s hoping more Universities join your ranks.  Let us know some of your sex-ed horror stories in the comments below.

 

Sex Positive Entrepreneurs via HUFFPOST

Huffington Post recently posted an article on Sex Positive Entrepreneurs.

 

Sex is everywhere. From billboards to steamy movie plots to come-hither musical lyrics, the pursuit of pleasure surrounds us.

And yet, sex remains one of the most uncomfortable and stigmatized topics for American women. Much of the uneven attitudes are based on an assumption of knowledge and understanding: We talk about the importance of consent, but not expectations and desires; health and wellness generally, but not the specifics of where and how to access condoms.

We understand this first hand! We are a family owned company that has been in business 30+ years. Dreamers has fought the fight and won (overturning the obscene devices ban in 2008) so you can buy a sex toy without the stigma and judgment. As a part of the #CocksNotGlocks movement we fought the absurd with the absurd and brought sexual health and wellness front and center.

Dreamers’ goal is to destigmatize sex and pleasure! Our knowledgeable and friendly staff are here so you can feel comfortable talking about what pleases you without being shamed. Through our social media, we’re keeping the conversation going. We also sponsor events that promote sex positivity and body positivity, like burlesque shows. This is why we are here and we will continue to fight for the pursuit of pleasure!

Stop by and visit one of our locations and you can see the Eva mentioned in the HuffPo post manufactured by Dame Products and created by Janet Lieberman and Alexandra Fine.  An amazing toy you have to see!
