Claire Cavanah and Rachel Venning opened the first Babeland store in 1993 in response to the lack of women-friendly sex shops in Seattle. The store offers top quality products, a pleasant place to shop, and most of all information and encouragement to people who want to explore their sexuality. The store's popularity led to three more stores in New York, plus a thriving and educational website.
This year, Babeland is sponsoring specialty raffle prize packages available to attendees at our 2-nights of shows when you enter to win.

überlube's  goal was to create a lightweight lubricant with long-lasting performance—one that doesn’t leave a sticky residue after the job is done. In 2004, after hundreds of formula iterations and extensive market testing, we launched our product, with its pure, simple ingredients packaged in the überlube trademark clear glass bottle.  Ultimately, when you use überlube you are using a product that’s all about helping you feel and be your best, whether you are enjoying a romp with your partner, hitting mile 19 of your marathon, or putting on the finishing touches for an evening out. Simply put, überlube’s first job is to make you feel amazing. That’s why we say “feeling is everything,” and why we expect you’ll agree after trying our product.   FInd out more at
