Giveaway: Sh! Goodie Bag! Winner: Lowercase m! Congrats!

Today is Love Your Body Day, something I think is fantastic. Every day is a good day to love your body, inside and out- and yet generally the focus is not so much on loving your body for you, but rather preening your body for a lover or the world at large.

While pampering is something ladies have long been encouraged to do- bubble baths, spa days, massage, etc- it's generally focused on external appearance. Getting your hair done, a manicure, buying some new clothes. But I live in a bubble where pampering includes buying excellent sex toys, lubricants, and erotica- cause getting off is great for your body in multiple ways!

Sh! Women's Erotic Emporium is one such place out in London. Originally just one little shop in Hoxton, but now with another on Portobello Road, it's a cosy little shop where you can get a cup of tea while you browse. It's a shop where it's ok to flip through the books (they provide comfy chairs, too) and to try on the lingerie (I have a denim corset from there that's awesome and was very reasonably priced). It was the place I went for my lubes and condoms. They also do loads of classes and meetups there, from Cliterature to art exhibitions, from finding your g-spot to book launches- their Facebook pages (Hoxton and Portobello) are good for keeping you updated, as does their Twitter.

I really like that they now offer discounts to members of the sex worker union, and currently they're donating money to a breast cancer charity if you buy certain toys. They also donated clothes and goods to those affected by the London Riots- something I think is pretty right on. In addition, I also really like that Sh! makes their own strap on harnesses and dildos, making it a female-owned, female-run business through and through.

Sh! has kindly offered to let me do a giveaway here on my blog of one of their adorable goodie bags- and yes, they'll send it anywhere, so international entries are allowed! And people not in London can also order Sh!'s harnesses and dildos (among other things) online, so don't you worry.

The goodie bag prize includes: a bottle of Lush Liquid, a bottle of Lush Refresh toy cleaner, a bottle of Lush Touch, a Sh! Bullet, a Lurve Heart vibrating cock ring, a feather and a Sh! Tote Bag.
