Sh! Debunks Common Myth: Can Using a Vibrator Too Much Cause Damage?

Sh! leads calls for an open debate on the extent of sexual abuse and violence ahead of awareness week

The UK’s pioneering first ever sex shop for women, Sh! has added its voice to the call for open debate on the extent of sexual abuse and violence ahead of 2018’s awareness week.

Sexual abuse and sexual violence awareness week will run from 5-11th February 2018. A series of events will take place across the country throughout the week, including Light Up The Night on Monday 05 February, which will see a walk across London’s Millennium Bridge take place to shine a light on the issue in solidarity with survivors of sexual abuse and sexual violence.

Based in London, Sh! is an entirely female owned and run erotic superstore which has a firm mission to recognize each woman’s individuality and inspire her to embrace her unique sexual identity. Described as ‘true pioneers’ by the Observer Magazine, Sh! has over 20 years experience, talking intimately to women about all aspects of sex and has worked closely with thousands of ‘pre-orgasmic’ women, along with survivors of cancer and rape.

As a champion for women’s sexual identity, the sexual abuse and violence awareness week is a cause close to the boutique’s heart. It has already worked on a number of initiatives to help those affected, including the launch of Café V. Part of the My Body Back Project, Café V is a regular group session which gives women a safe place to learn about loving their bodies after violence, held every two months within the Sh! boutique.

Led by an experienced team, Café V sessions are especially for women who have experienced sexual violence and deal with problems such as anxiety, triggers, pain during sex and body issues.

Ky Hoyle, Founder and MD of Sh!, said, “Sexual abuse and sexual violence is never ok but, it’s often something that many people prefer not to think or talk about. Recent events such as the Harvey Weinstein scandal have started to provoke a change and we’re seeing more women come forward and share their stories. This is a topic very close to our hearts and we want to do all we can to encourage more open debate on the extent of sexual abuse and violence ahead of February’s awareness week.”

In support of the awareness week, Sh! are working with the inspiring My Body Back Project to raise funds. The brand will be auctioning two Lelo Tiani 24k vibrators, worth £339 through its website and social media channels. All the proceeds will go toward supporting female survivors or sexual abuse and violence.
