About Eve's Garden
Founded in 1974 by women's rights activist Dell Williams, Eve's Garden is the world's first mail-order catalog and sexuality boutique designed for the unique needs of women. Unlike other sex shops, Eve's Garden does not cater to the "bachelorette" or specialize in gag gifts. Its clientele is the discerning female consumer seeking to expand and celebrate her sexuality and enhance her sexual experiences. Located on the upper levels of an office building on New York's Westside, Eve's Garden offers a discreet, comfortable and shame-free atmosphere where women can purchase erotic and sensual toys.
As the founder of Eve's Garden and a pioneer for women's sexual freedom, Williams' has tirelessly worked to help women overcome the guilt and shame they were conditioned to feel about sex and is a respected and trusted figure in the industry. Williams recently donated her papers and other items from her career to Cornell University's Department for Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies. She is also listed in the Who's Who of Sexual Academics and Leaders.
After feeling humiliated upon buying her first vibrator in a department store, Williams vowed that no woman should have to feel embarrassed about her sexuality again. Combining her passion for political change and women's liberation, she created a safe, private and supportive way for women to purchase vibrators, educational materials and sexual aids without feelings of shame or self-consciousness.
Eve's Garden was created to empower women to celebrate their sexuality as a positive, nourishing and creative force in their lives. An outgrowth of the Women's Rights Movement, Eve's Garden seeks to erase the sense of shame and guilt experienced by countless women as a result of a society that historically condemns the sexual nature of women as sinful. Our version of "Eve" is a transformation from a fallen, shamed woman to a strong, powerful woman proud of her strength, sensitivity, and sexuality.
To that purpose we have created a comfortable, elegant, and educational environment for women to explore the tools of pleasure, the books, and other enlightening materials to enhance mind, body, and spirit. We seek to encourage women to take responsibility for their own sexuality, honor the sacredness of sex, and clearly understand that bodily pleasure and spiritual joy are one, and an inalienable right.
Women have been celebrating their sexuality, proudly and joyously for over 30 years at Eves Garden. Our reputation as a leader in the fight for a woman's right to sexual freedom is only surpassed by our customer's satisfaction and the confidence that their personal information will be held in the strictest confidence.
