These 5 books are great resources to begin on that journey.

As we face the challenges and uncertainty around addressing the COVID-19 virus, the Tool Shed has decided to temporarily shut down our regular in-store face-to-face for the time being, starting on March 18, 2020 and lasting at least through March 31, 2020 (or longer if needed).
The Tool Shed's mission is to provide quality, body-safe products that enhance the sexual lives and relationships of our customers. We also offer sexuality education in a compassionate and welcoming atmosphere.
