Wow! That was one really long, really awesome holiday weekend—even though it kinda flew by. I’m so happy I got to spend quality time with my sister, boyfriend and his family and our friends. We saw fireworks, ate BBQ, swam, drank and shopped. On Tuesday night, my sister and I went to Madison Square Garden to see Lady Gaga (more on that soon!) 

But before we headed to MSG to see the Monster Ball, we made a pit stop at Babeland, my favorite female-friendly sex shop.

Sex ed available direct from Babeland in the new book, MOREGASM (2009), available at

It’s nothing like that right-off-the-highway, sketchy, dirty sex shop that only a creepy guy would feel comfortable walking into. Instead, Babeland is like an upscale boutique, clean, well-lit and filled with friendly, helpful gal staff. Turns out that the store is promoting a program right now called Come for a Cause: Sex Education, which I just had to share with you. The Cause: The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), which educates teachers, youth, parents, and politicians about sexuality and reproductive health. The Deal: Donate $5 and get a free Jimmyjane massage lotion, candle or vibrator. The sales chick who rang me up didn’t really have to explain any further. And not just because I think Jimmyjane makes sexy, quality products! I’m all about supporting SIECUS.

Here’s what they’re all about (via the SIECUS mission statement):

SIECUS affirms that sexuality is a fundamental part of being human, one that is worthy of dignity and respect. We advocate for the right of all people to accurate information, comprehensive education about sexuality, and sexual health services. SIECUS works to create a world that ensures social justice and sexual rights.

More specifically, SIECUS supports teen pregnancy prevention, education on sexual orientation and gender identity, STD prevention and education, etc.  

As you can guess, this is one cause I would without question give 5 bucks to. Sex ed is power! Plus, a “sensual gift” for free? That’s just the icing! haha Babeland’s accepting donations online, so for more info, click here.
