In the 1970s a group of feminist entrepreneurs pioneered a movement by reimagining the sex shop industry. They questioned who sex shops benefited, what type of customer visited them, and what potential could they achieve, and through their brainstorming and research created companies such as Eve’s Garden, Good Vibrations, and Babeland. These weren't mere commercial enterprises, but places of education and providers of community resources. They changed how sex was discussed, how it was had, and even how it was enjoyed.

In «Vibrator Nation» Lynn Comella shares how these sex-positive retailers raised sexual consciousness and doubled as social activists, having redefined the adult industry and changed the lives of women everywhere.

Join us in the Rare Book Room as Lynn Comella sits down with Julie Scelfo, author of Women Who Made New York, to discuss this all important industry and its place in the feminist movement.
