Ecosexy - ecoCARE

eco, sex, green sex, organic sex

There's nothing sexy about phthalates, a chemical found in a lot of sex toys that’s both bad for our bodies as well as our earth. With that in mind (and heart) Red Tent Sisters was born: An independent, pro-woman, pro-sex Toronto-based boutique and wellness centre founded by two sisters, Amy and Kim Sedgwick. Passionate about passion, they're whole-heartedly committed to the very noble cause of environmentally-friendly orgasms. 

In love with the idea of bringing really good, really healthy, really green sex to the masses, their location on the Danforth stocks their shelves with lovely, luxurious lubes, toys and oils (alongside other things like birthing pools, fertility products, and contraceptives) - anything a girl could want along her reproductive and sexual journey. They provide a space where women can come together to share wisdom, support and compassion for one another.

Featuring products like the Lelo line – clever high tech designs with the most beautiful of aesthetics (you’d think that Karim Rashid designed them!). We especially love that they're rechargeable as they mean fewer landfill-bound batteries. Or if you’re looking for something different, check out their toys made from glass, stainless steel, silicone, or sustainably farmed exotic hardwoods which are natural and have been used as options for centuries. Bringing back the old school stylee for our modern lifestyles, today's natural toys are made from medical grade finishes that are both silky to the touch, as well as healthy and eco-conscious.

Next time you're waxing romantic, go out and buy those flowers (fair trade of course) but skip the box of chocolates - give an Edible Chocolate Massage Bar instead (sharing takes on a whole new meaning). It comes in yummy orange and other edible essential oils. Not into chocolate? Their Capotain’s Strawberry lubricant is made from real fruit extracts, and the Hathor Coconut Orange is Canadian made tropical yumminess made of pure botanical emollients and organically cultivated essential oils (it also comes in Hazelnut Caramel).

Organic massage oils, soy candles, and fair-trade organic chocolate all make deliciously fun ecosexy gifts that both you (and mama earth) can reap the benefits of. Pair any of these with the offer of a massage and you're pretty much guaranteed a perfect romantic night-in ;)

Visit their store at 810 Danforth Avenue (just east of Pape) or you can discretely place your order online at: www.ecosex.ca.
