Bex Caputo is a sex educator, blogger, speaker, podcaster, and dildo peddler. They’ve been a proud and undeniable kinkster ever since they insisted on being served their meals in a dog bowl at the age of 8, (and even before that, probably). They’re a Virgo,1 a Hufflepuff, a pup, and a nonbinary queerdo who grew up into the pop punk skater boy they had a crush on in high school.
Sex shops are great! Even though many people go online to buy their sex toys and other kinky items, good brick & mortar sex shops offer much more to customers than online websites. Both serve an important purpose. People have many misconceptions of sex shops. Some think they are dirty and grimy and filled with old men jacking off in trench coats. Sure, there are some adult book stores and movie theaters where you would not want to shine a blacklight, but most sex shops have a helpful staff who can make the customer feel comfortable and educate them at the same time.
So, I asked some of our sex shop employee friends several questions. Here are their answers.

Heroes save lives and the kink community saved mine. My life was a mess. I met some wonderful people who have been kind and helpful throughout my journey within the kink community. This is only part one in a series about people who I truly think are heroes in the kink community.
So, I talked to some of my kinky heroes and asked them questions about giving back to the community. Here are their answers.
Our Kinky Friends Talk About Being Healed by BDSM
Throughout the years, I have known many vanilla people who got involved in kink and now, they feel like kink saved their lives. Not everyone can wrap their head around kinky sexual expression. Some people cannot even understand the concept of being tied up. Once they break their borders, a sense of healing starts. I am a recovering drug addict. I’m not going back to drugs and kink is a major reason for that. While I do have this addictive behavior, it was love, kink, and sexual expression that helped me get through drug addiction and emotional loss after the death of the love of my life.
So, I asked some of our kinky friends some questions about how being kinky healed them. Here are their answers.
