We’re all becoming conscious consumers everyday and want to know how the products we buy are being made. It’s, thus, always a bonus when a business is doing their best to make a positive impact on the world. So why should this be any different for our sex toys? This article will tell you about five sex positive brands (in no particular order) which are doing the most in terms of including black/trans owned sex toy companies, to sex positive shops selling lube and teaching about sex and relationships.
Shop Enby is a Black/Trans owned sex toy company based in the USA that believe in affirmation and pleasure! Their aim is to create a safer and more comfortable shopping experience for the Queer community, particularly for those who are gender non conforming, trans and non binary.
On top of all of this, they donate a proportion of their profits to underfunded organisations focused on improving the lives of Queer/Trans people of colour! And they don’t stop there, they’re also in the fight against climate change and every sale from Shop Enby funds renewable energy and forest conservation projects!
Shop Enby sell incredible products based in pleasure, affirmation and wellness.

Love Not War
Love Not War is another sustainable sex toy business, but what are they doing that’s different to the rest? They repair and recycle! Yes their toys are high quality but all products will have some natural wear. Love Not War commit to doing their best to repair a toy for you and if upon inspection they find the toy cannot be repaired they will recycle it at a custom-built green powered factory!
