The best damn sex shop on the rez

August 1st, 2008     by Jessica Yee     Comments

I am so very happy and completely thrilled to announce that my home territory of Akwesasne now has a fully loaded, all purpose, sex store!

Located on the New York side of Akwe, Totem Pole Novelties opened in January of this year and since then has become a booming, not to mention pleasurable, business! From the hottest erotica to the most salacious how-to DVD’s, Totem Pole Novelties has all your sweet spot needs whether you are going it solo, upping the ante on a long-term partnership, or just looking to have some safe and sexy fun.

I had a chance to visit this week and can tell you first hand that this is the place you want to be to get an up close and personal view of how some amazingly strong individuals are breaking taboos and taking back ownership for pleasure on the reservation to get to the best end result possible: empowerment.

It is so important that we in the Native community remember the power we used to honour in our sexuality and celebrate all of who we are, including our right to enjoy sex! We have so many teachings that support this that are too often forgotten and are instead, thrown into hypersexualized media.

Show them some love on their Facebook group or hit up their website and congratulate these brave Mohawks for keeping it real!
