Join author Lynn Comella for the Toronto launch of her new book Vibrator Nation, which details the fascinating history of how stores like Good For Her set the sex-toy industry abuzz.

Drawing on more than eighty in-depth interviews with retailers and industry insiders, including a stint working as a vibrator clerk, she brings readers onto the sex-shop floor and into the fascinating world of sex-positive capitalism and cultural production.
