The Marvelous Massager from CalExotics

In a world where “bigger is better” concerning electronics, it’s nice to see a device from a company that hasn’t taken this to heart. Enter The Marvelous Massager by CalExotics. This is a vibrator the likes of which is a staff favorite here at Sexploratorium. The device is encased in medical grade, waterproof silicone and is small enough to sit in the middle of one’s palm. Despite its small size, it packs a powerful, yet whisper level punch. With 10 modes of fun, you can be sure that boredom will be the least of your worries. Use the travel lock when on the go to ensure that the party doesn’t start without you! 100% of the surface area of this toy can be used!

Where this product really shines, however, is in it’s ergonomic and useful design. This is a device that you wear on your hand!

Once it slides between your fingers, a world of possibilities open up for anyone which are only limited by imagination.

  • For those who own vulvas, use it on yourself during penetrative missionary position intercourse. In the doggy-style position, give it to a partner for “reach around” fun.
  • Into kinky or BDSM related good times? Let your playmate have it to push you over the edge while bound. For those of you who enjoy shibari, it also works amazingly when rigged into rope.
  • Want to improve oral experiences? Hold it against your cheek while performing for a whole new world!
  • Did you or someone you’re intimate with have a long day? Reach up and let it work your shoulders or combine with water based lube to work someone else over!

This toy really spoke to my needs concerning having the kind of products that scream versatility. I have had mine now for a few weeks and have enjoyed it immensely in some of the ways described above and more! I couldn’t have asked for a better toy at such a great price point. Get yours soon!

Road Trips & Pop Up Shopping

How does a seven day camping trip centered around sexuality, kink and spirituality sound? Dark Odyssey‘s events are some of the most anticipated events of the year as 1000+ people from all over the world make their way to the locations where their events are held. For us, this was something we see as a “workcation”, with the primary focus being to provide campgoers with the same experiences we provide at the Sexploratorium store in Philadelphia.

Basically, with every pop up shop we create: we arrive, build a store (out of gridwall and hard work), and populate it with products from the store. Sounds fairly easy, right? Well, the thing about camping trips is that camping happens outdoors, and that’s where we built our store: outside! The elements did indeed try to come for us! Imagine the age old image of using a bucket to scoop the incoming water out of a slowly sinking boat! That was us as a torrential downpour began halfway through our trip! Spirits and products were both dampened, but we persevered with optimism and the help of two skilled campers who reinforced our vending tent! Just when things we’re looking the most dim, the sunshine came quite literally!

Between telling customers about our new kaleidoscope goggles (think sensory overload instead of the sensory deprivation many bondage fans look for when shopping for blindfolds) and outfitting folks with the latest in electric-stimulation vibrators (we learned that sex educator Midori refers to these as “ghost fuckers”), we managed to throw a party of our own the entire weekend, including a pool party on the official event schedule involving two bondage bubbles and floating inflatable latex body bag for campgoers. Kali even brought people together to dye latex in one of the numerous workshops at the event!

We are happy to be back, elated that we had another amazing experience at a DO event! We hope to see you there or at some of our other upcoming Pop-ups coming to a place near you!

Sexual Intelligence College Outreach Program

The Sexual Intelligence College Outreach Program features an evolving  curriculum specifically designed for young adults. Sexploratorium’snewest educational adventure includes interactive hands-on education without much of the humorous live demonstrations or “edutainment” style party games that have made our in-store and offsite Passion 101 Classes so popular with adults for ladies nights, bachelore/ette parties and other grown up parties and occasions.


Created by educator Ashley Robin, the Sexual Intelligence College Outreach Program or SICOP was recently featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The program features highly requested workshops on Accessible Sex, Queering Up Sex, The Penis and Beyond, The Vagina and Beyond, and Embracing the Taboo, with other topics on the way.

The workshops that were created for the SICOP project are appropriate for college level classes in human sexuality, psychology, gender studies, sociology and other undergraduate liberal arts programs. The SICOP workshops have also been popular with student groups and residences for on-campus sex weeks, student activities new student recruiting efforts, residence hall activities and other student-led events.
