Tulip Toys in Chicago!

17 Apr 2014, by Marla Stewart in Sexual Voyaging


After I presented my paper at the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association, I went to downtown Chicago to search for something sexuality-related and awesome.  As I made my way through Boystown, I found a quaint little shop called Tulip.  This store was absolutely beautiful.  It was well-organized with awesome and amazing products.  They had the latest and greatest with healthy toys and accessories and it was extremely comfortable.  The staff was thoughtful, nice and informative.

While I was looking around, I saw a new product that I had never seen before.  It was called the Semenette.  It’s basically a dildo with a pocket to place semen/sperm inside so that a person can impregnate another person.  Currently, it’s being marketed towards lesbian women, but as they get more and more popular, I’m sure that will change.


At another store nearby (they wanted to remain nameless), I saw another product that caught my eye.  I had heard of these products before, but it was nice to see them in person.  Most of us know about pheromones, but now they’ve come up with a way to boost your pheromone activity that sprays or rolls on.  Now, this product doesn’t have rave reviews online, but it was definitely unique!


Regardless, if you’re ever in Chicago, please check out the Tulip Toy Gallery (they have 2 locations!) and support women business owners who specialize in sexuality!
