Bliss…For Women

Bliss for Women

Is a shop (also online) that is a hub for all things female sexuality in Melbourne. Maureen Matthews (owner) of the shop is well versed in male/female sexual politics having written a column (in The Age?) since 2006 or possibly earlier.

I first came across the store in the early days (I think via Community Radio) and even back then I thought it was a bloody magnificent idea and oh so long overdue.

I remember visiting the shop with the girly as she is a liberated woman and well ahead of the sexual curve of a lot of women thankfully and she dug it too. I remember it being upstairs and a smallish shop with vibrators and lubricant and lots of books and that is about all I can remember at this point in time.

Anyway, I really love this store and I hope if you are in Melbourne one day and have a bit of spring in your step you too will visit and keep the wheels in motion because shops like this are so important on the Australian sexual landscape.

They actually offer an unblinkered view of human sexuality and this is why they must be supported against the tsunami of really ordinary chain sex stores that are the current “kewl” in this part of the world.

Anyway as always you are free to you to make up your own mind and frankly I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Update On the advice of the wonderful AOF (check out her work…it’s good I tells ya (see comments)!), I am revising my spiel to state that possibly (although via Google the shop still exists) the shop is online only these days.

  1. Hmmm…you may well be right AOF. I should have clicked at the non listing of an address but that is what you get when you live out in the sticks….!
    Google still lists the shop in Lonsdale St…?

    Might edit that post I think just so I dont lead anyone up the garden path.
