Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland is pleased to welcome co-founder of Babeland and author Rachel Venning to the store to discuss and sign her new book, Moregasm: Babeland's Guide to Mind-Blowing Sex, on Tuesday, February 16 @ 7pm.
Rachel Venning and Claire Cavanah founded Toys in Babeland in 1993 in response to the lack of women-friendly sex shops in Seattle. Committed to offering information and encouragement to women who wanted to explore their sexuality, the owners focused on selling quality sex toys in a boutique-like setting. In 2005 Toys in Babeland officially shortened its name to "Babeland" and modernized its look. Says co-founder Venning, “Toys in Babeland had become much more than just a place to buy sex toys, so we decided to present Babeland as a destination, a lifestyle, a state of mind — all celebrating the simple truth that sexually healthy people make the world a happier place.”
