Woman-owned or Feminist Sex Toy StoresSugarFor all your online sex toy needs, we wholeheartedly recommend SUGAR — a feminist, woman-owned sex toy shop with an online store and physical location in Baltimore, MD!

We decided to partner with Sugar because we’re longtime fans of their work. Here’s a little introduction from Jacq, the owner of Sugar, herself:

Hi, my name is Jacq Jones. I’m a sex educator and the owner of Sugar, an education focused sex toy boutique. We believe that by providing education and toys in a shame free, sex positive, fun environment we can help our customers experience their own unique sexuality with shameless joy and passion. We curate our toy selection, featuring products that are the best value at every price point, made of safe ingredients and are designed with a variety of bodies in mind, all with your joy first in our minds

We love our work, and we wouldn’t be able to do with this work without the support of our customers and our communities. Part of how we say thank you is by donating a percentage of our profits, products and time. We donate 10% of our sales from the First Friday of the month to local and national charities. We joyfully participate in donating products to fundraisers. We frequently provide free or low cost education programs to underserved communities.

We are thrilled to be working with Amy Jo and to we hope to welcome you all to the Sugar family!
