It's almost here...do have something special for your special someone?

Turn your holiday into XXX-MAS with help from Condom Shack! With only 3 shopping days left, we're going to make sure that noone gets stuck with another decorative mug, filled with various ciders. Condom Shack has gifts for just about any adult on your list. We can help you find the perfect toy for your partner, last minute stocking stuffers for your friends, and secret santa gifts for the office.  

The fun of toys at christmas doesn't have to stop because you're an adult, just don't forget the batteries! Our toys range from $7.99 (for a disposable vibrating cockring), up to $139.99 (for the infamous Rabbit). Within our vast selection of vibrators, we have dozens of toys for $20 or less, and lots more under $50. Make your gift memorable, and enjoyable. Bubble bath and candles are a nice gift for anyone you know that deserves time to relax, but add a waterproof vibrator, an you have given a gift of true relaxation and contentment.

If sensual is what you're looking for, Condom Shack also has a huge selection of flavoured/warming massage oils, edible body powders, and chocolate body paint. We also have games like 'Seduction' which comes complete with a blindfold, massage oil, and fantasy coupons.

If kinky fun is more your style, how about some fuzzy handcuffs, or vibrating nipple clamps?

Stuff a stocking with fun! We have great deals on bulk condoms and mini lubes. Mix'n'match flavoured and glowing condoms 6 for $5, or our favourite lubes 6 for $7. Or try our 'Super Fun Mixer Pack' ($14.99), 12 of our best condoms in a variety of shapes, sizes and textures.

Need something silly for secret santa? Our wide selection of novelties includes everything from candy cane cockpops and edible undies, to boob salt'n'pepper shakers, and 'mackaweenie and cheese'. Sure, a boardgame like Monopoly is a holiday classic, but Strippopoly takes boardgame fun to the next level with three ways to play (x, xx and xxx for the really adventurous). Be the hit of your gift exchange with a hilarious adult gift!

Take That Durex! Kimono Microthin REALLY are THE Thinnest Condom!

For as long as I've been at Condom Shack, I have been annoyed by the marketing of North American condom brands. The more informed I've become about condom manufacturing, testing and marketing, the clearer it has become that most condom brands put their sub-par condoms in a well thought out package. If only they spent all that time, effort and money to make their product better, they wouldn't need the  clever slogans and  buzz-words to convince you that their crap is the best. 'New' products are often found to be the same old condom in a pretty new box, and with every new 'her pleasure' product, I become more convinced that there are no women working at these companies.
It's also standard practice to use ingenious tactics to make bold statements about their condoms that aren't quite true, but aren't exactly lies. For example, "The #1 Most Trusted Condom" means only that you (the consumer) have believed previous advertising, and now trust this condom more than others on the market. It does not state that they're the 'most reliable', or 'the strongest' because neither of those statements are true. It also doesn't mention that this brand abides by the exact same testing standards as all other condoms made in North America, making it just as trustworthy as any other American made condom (even the brands you've never heard of).
Recently, Durex took bullsh*t marketing to the next level; bold faced lies. Durex Sensi-Thin condoms have been claiming to be "The World's Thinnest Latex Condom" despite the fact that Kimono MicroThin are, and always have been, substantially thinner. Mayer Labs (the makers of Kimono condoms) refused to believe this unsubstantiated claim, and went to the lab to get to the bottom of it. After testing both the Durex Sensi-Thin, and Kimono MicroThin, they found in each and every lot tested, Kimono MicroThin were thinner. With these tests (ISO 4074:2002) as proof, they went to Durex to call them on their lies. Durex responded that they are now in the process of "removing the claim that Durex Sensi-Thin condoms are the world's thinnest latex condom" from their packaging a promotional materials. This just goes to show, that unless you (the consumer) or us (others in the industry) notice that we're being lied to, and confront these companies, they will continue to lie and mislead us. It would be a wonderful world if those entrusted with our health and safety, actually had our health and safety as their first priority. These companies rely on you trusting their brand so that you never try any others, which would bring to your attention to the fact that condoms don't have to be 'like wearing a raincoat in the shower'. There are condoms on the market that don't smell like tires, don't irritate sensitive vag's, and don't strangle your dick, but you'd never know that if you'd only tried "Canada's #1 Condom".
Critical thinking and media awareness are important in all areas of life, but especially when it's a matter of life and death, extra attention must be paid to who's telling you what, and why.
At Condom Shack, we spend our time deciphering the marketing bullsh*t, so you don't have to. You can always trust that we have your crotch's best interest at heart. Our business has been here for 15 years because of honesty and education, not cleverly worded pitches.

Sex Show Success!

The Everything To Do With Sex Show has come and gone for another year. It was sooo much fun, as always, and crazy busy! Now we return to business as usual and put away the 6' wang until next year....but we'll always have the memories. Oh yeah, and tons of photos. If you have photos of us, you, or your friends and our jumbo wang, send them to order@condomshack.com and we'll put them up for all to see.
I'm especially flattered by the out-pouring of Condom Shack love. Many times over the course of the weekend, people would excitedly tell me stories of buying their first toy from us, or how after using a Kimono condom, they'll never use a Trojan again. This is why we love what we do. Every night, someone, somewhere, is having better, safer sex because of us. Either that, or they're having a hell of a time alone.

 
In this time of economic uncertainty we are very appreciative of all the customers that support this small, independant, local business. We pride ourselves on our educated, helpful staff who are not on commission, but just want to make crotches happy!
 We also try to make our business decisions from an ethically and environmentally responsible place, using Canadian distributors whenever possible, and supporting small businesses. We are proud to carry Wicked Massage Potions and BangBang Condoms, both of which come from small companies in the GTA. We also encourage buying condoms in bulk (less packaging) and are now using paper bags whenever possible.
So thanks to all our loyal customers, and welcome to the new ones!! Don't hesitate to let us know how much you like us, or what we could do better.
Happy Humping!

We're Back!

We’re back and better than ever! Welcome the new www.condomshack.com! We’ve made some changes, and we hope you like them.  For your online shopping convenience, we’ve added PayPal Express. This speeds up the processing of your order big time!
You can also access a list of ingredients for most of our products. When shopping for lubes or massage oil, you can know exactly what’s in them and avoid possible allergens, or irritants (for example, a lot of scented massage oils contain nut oils).
 You can also check out the materials of different toys. If you’re concerned about phthalates, we have plenty of toys that are phthalate-free! It will say so in it’s ingredients listing. We also have toys that are 100% pure silicone, as well as ‘silicone’ which means it’s a blend of materials, including silicone.
We have a monthly special (this month it’s the Doc Johnson Lucid Dream #9) and new products will be entered on a regular basis.
 And I swear, I’m gonna get on this blogging thing. Fortunately for the store, (unfortunately for the blog) we’ve been really busy lately! After the madness of summer, and the insanity of frosh week, we now prepare for The Everything To Do With Sex Show! Oct.24.25.26 at Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place (go to www.everythingtodowithsex.com for more info)
It’s what I look forward to all year long, 3 days of education, fornication, and voyeurism. If you’ve never been, come check it out! You’ll find booths selling everything from dildos on pogo sticks, to pretzel dips (it’s nothing sexual, just delicious dip). There’s fashion shows, seminars, contests and many, many scantily clad people having a really good time. You might even meet a porn star! It’s for 19+, it’s licensed and open till midnite on Friday and Saturday. It’s lots of fun, and we’ll be there, having a blast!
Come visit us at a mini version of our Queen St. store.Just look for the 6’ inflatable penis. I’ll be the girl riding it.
