At She Bop, sexual empowerment is for EVERY BODY
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to sex education or pleasure. She Bop fosters an affirming, inclusive space where everyone can be themselves. All bodies are celebrated here. We fight for equity in the adult industry. We are working to decenter whiteness — in our hiring practices, education program, product selection, and beyond. We recognize there is more to equity than dildo skin tones. This is ongoing work, and Team Bop is dedicated to it.

In response to surging COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, our state leaders announced that indoor mask use is mandatory starting 8/13/21. At She Bop, we will continue to ask that ALL customers wear a mask in our shop. If you do not have a mask, we will provide one for you at the door.
While our entire staff are fully vaccinated, there are many folks who are not. The Delta variant of COVID-19 is spreading rapidly to unvaccinated, and sometimes to vaccinated, individuals. If the simple act of wearing a mask can protect us and those around us, then let's do it!
If you are unable to wear a mask, that's okay, we have an amazing online store here, and we offer USPS delivery or curbside pick-up at our North Portland location. Our staff are available daily from 11am-5pm, except for Tuesdays, through our online chat feature or by phone if you need help picking out products or just have questions.
Thank you so much for understanding. We love our community and want to protect everyone who is a part of it.
Who We Are
Evy Cowan and Jeneen Doumitt opened She Bop in November of 2009 with the objective of creating an adult boutique specializing in non-toxic body-safe toys, exceptional books, and quality sensuality products. She Bop gives Portland an adult atmosphere that goes beyond the traditional sex store experience by actively pursuing a commitment to sexual education and conscious business practices while also offering a fun, safe, comfortable and sex-positive environment for people of all genders, sexual orientations and social backgrounds.
Who Should Come to She Bop?
She Bop is female-friendly, not female-only. She Bop was created for a diverse community with an emerging personal and social awareness of healthy sexuality as an important component to everyday life. This includes all varieties of personal identifiers such as gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, age, marital status – whoever you are, as long as you are over 18, you are welcome in our store! For those under 18, we highly recommend checking out Scarleteen.
While many people think the name She Bop means that only “she”s can “bop” in the shop, our name is not intended to be about gender. It is actually inspired by Evy and Jeneen's love of their 80s-idol Cyndi Lauper who sang about masturbation and sexual empowerment in her song titled “She Bop”. As we believe that there are a multitude of gender-identities and personal pronouns for people to identify with, the name She Bop is not about the pronoun but is about the message of sexual freedom behind the song.
From the products we carry to the way we talk to our customers about them, we strive to use gender-neutral pronouns as much as possible to avoid making assumptions about how our customers identify themselves and their partners. We are more than happy to adjust our language to accommodate specific pronouns – just let us know!
How We Bop Locally and Sustainably
She Bop reduces our impact on the environment by offering eco-friendly and local products when possible. We offer a large selection of rechargeable toys, organic lubricants and products made from sustainable materials. We use 100% recycled bags and we recycle packing material in-house by sharing them with our small-business neighbors or reusing the packing materials from our incoming shipments to pack our outgoing shipments.
Supporting our local community is also very important to She Bop. We carry many handmade and locally-sourced sexuality products and make an effort to purchase other services we use such as our T-shirt and sticker printing and even our phone/internet and credit card processing services from Portland-area companies.
We've given thousands of dollars to local non-profit organizations by raising money during our frequent in-store fundraisers and by donating gift certificates and goodie bags to outside fundraising events throughout the city, partnering frequently with Portland's feminist and LGBTQI organizations, low-cost health clinics and college campuses.
Through offering sexuality-focused educational classes and workshops at an affordable cost, She Bop helps keep our community sexually happy, healthy and informed.
Classes and Workshops (these are being offered via Zoom until 2022)
In addition to providing education to customers in the shop, we offer monthly sexuality-related classes and workshops. Class topics include the G-spot, anal play, non-monogamy, communication, cunnilingus, BDSM, burlesque, rough sex, fellatio, rope bondage, and many more. In addition to in-house educators Amory Jane and Gretchen Leigh, we enlist local sexuality instructors such as Stella Harris, Ev'Yan Whitney, and Jessie Fresh.
We also bring in speakers from other parts of the country. These have included Sex Down South Conference co-founder Marla Renee Stewart, author and director Tristan Taormino, sex edu-tainer Dirty Lola, and blogger and author Kevin Patterson.
After-Hours Parties (these are being offered via Zoom until 2022)
She Bop offers after-hours parties for bachelorette, birthdays, or just a night out with some friends. We will give you and your group a tour of our products, talk about how they work and how to make them work for you! Have us all to yourselves for some music, wine and fun times!
After hours parties begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m. The cost is a minimum of $150 for up to 10 people and then $15 for each additional person over 10. This includes an introduction to our products and how to use them (a sex toys 101 so to speak), a complimentary glass of wine, and plenty of time to shop and ask questions!
Please email us at [email protected] for more information or to set-up a party. We require a $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve your date.
Before / After-Hours Binder Fittings for Youth Under 18 Years of Age

She Bop is dedicated to promoting and supporting organizations focusing on healthy and safe sexuality, women's rights and LGBTQ rights, as well as other organizations and non-profits. This support comes through coordinating fundraisers and events to benefit a variety of worthy causes. Throughout the year, She Bop runs We Give Back fundraisers to support local non-profits Bitch Media, Q Center, SEI, North by Northeast Community Health Center, Call to Safety, Prism Health, TransActive, and Bradley Angle. Our staff regularly teach off-site sex education workshops to college students, LGBTQ youth, and local support groups. Additionally, She Bop sponsors sexy storytelling events Mystery Box Show, Whoopee! A Sex-Positive Variety Show, roller derby league Rose City Rollers, indie porn film festival HUMP!, and the always stunning shows of Rue Royale Burlesque. She Bop has also donated countless gift certificates and sex toys to a variety of organizations for special events and fundraisers.
