Each year when Valentine’s Day rolls around we participate in the ancient Catholic celebration of Saint Vincent, which author Geoffrey Chaucer romanticized in a poem he wrote the 14th century.
Since then the holiday has become an occasion to celebrate love and romance. Each year on February 14 we express it to those whom we are fond of with cards, gifts or an intimate rendezvous. We idolize romance. Cleopatra and Mark Antony or Romeo and Juliet symbolize an ideal love that can open closed hearts and elevate us to a blissful state of passion.
Romance is the magic we can feel while we soak in the heady awesomeness of falling in love, and it’s been said that lasting romance develops when there is an agreement to experience magic in relationship. It is a shared vision that, over time and with practice, becomes a reality. The good news is that intimacy skills that foster romance can be learned, practiced, and mastered. That’s where Love Revolution comes in. You may have heard Love Revolution referred to as Ashland’s “sex shop”, but it’s not like anything you might imagine.
As you step through the door it becomes apparent that you’ve entered an environment developed with the intention to support and honor every person that arrives here. The owners are motivated by their own interest in awareness, deep intimacy and conscious lovemaking that has the intent to heal. To that end, Love Revolution has already hosted over 100 classes on sexual health and techniques, gender, alternative relationships, relationship skills, and also many events such as mixers and First Friday parties.
Exploring the Main Street shop you’ll find an artistic environment with beautiful displays of products and educational materials. The professional staff provide sensitive assistance, answering questions and offering suggestions when invited, but always giving patrons space to explore on their own. The staff loves to troubleshoot with customers to help them select the perfect products for their needs and desires.
From books, lingerie, toys and tools, to locally produced organic lubricants, massage oil and gifts, there’s something for everyone—all provided to enhance relationship and sensual fulfillment, either with oneself or with a partner. You can also visit the online shop at LoveAshland.com. The secure website offers a range of hand-selected body-safe products in addition to the calendar of events. You can count on discreet shipping and strict confidentiality practices.
Love Revolution, at 383 East Main Street, is Ashland’s own classy sexuality boutique, committed to fostering healthy relationships and fulfilling sexual experiences. For good reason, it’s been called Ashland’s hub for conscious intimacy. It truly is a revolution of love.
