Babeland to Present 4 Workshops, Showcase Array of Pleasure Products at Sex Expo NY

NEW YORK — Babeland has signed on as a platinum sponsor for Sex Expo NY, where the national retail chain will be featuring a wide array of pleasure products in its booth as well as presenting four workshops.

Presented by premier cam network Chaturbate, Sex Expo is set for the weekend of Sept. 22-23 at the Brooklyn Expo Center. The two-day event will feature showcases from top pleasure product manufacturers and sex-ed workshops hosted by a variety of educators and sexual wellness experts.

“We’re looking forward to presenting at Sex Expo as a platinum sponsor,” said Joel Kaminsky, president of the Good Vibrations chain — which acquired Babeland in 2017. “We’ll be presenting four different workshops: ‘Playing With Power: Building Dynamite Dynamics,’ ‘The Art of the Blow Job,’ ‘Positions of Pleasure’ and a workshop on squirting. Additionally, we’ll be presenting an array of merchandise in our welcoming and inviting booth space. We’ll be featuring the same high-quality products found in Babeland’s retail stores and website, from easily affordable to luxury items. This will include sex toys, lube and condoms. And of course, we’ll be having some valuable freebies to dole out.”

Babeland, originally called Toys in Babeland, launched in 1993 with a store in Seattle and shortened its name to simply Babeland in 2005. Presently, Babeland operates four brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S. — one in Seattle, two in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn — as well as the e-commerce site Babeland.com.

Babeland Brand Manager Lisa Finn, sexologist Dr. Carol Queen and some of Babeland’s sales associates will be available to answer questions in Babeland’s Sex Expo booth.

Babeland’s activity at Sex Expo New York 2018, according to Kaminsky, reflects the retailer’s sex-positive outlook.

“Lots of people use the phrase sex-positive to just mean, ‘Yay, sex!,’ but for us, our staff and our stores, it goes much deeper,” Kaminsky said. “Sex-positivity is about each and every person having the access to safely explore and understand their authentic sexual self, whether you’re asexual, LGBTQ, a senior, or in your first relationship. Sex- positivity isn’t a product; it’s an experience that we strive to give everyone who touches our brand.” 

The Brooklyn Expo Center is located at 72 Noble St. in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint area and is within walking distance of the MTA’s Greenpoint Ave. subway station, which is served by the G Train.
