An Interview With Searah Deysach of Early to Bed

ETBSince 2001, Searah has been promoting a woman-centric view of sex while also providing a plethora of resources for any gender expression. In a time where the majority of sex stores stocked plastic pussies, vac-u-jacks, and cheap wanna-be dongs, Searah ventured forth with a mission to create a friendly, not-at-all-sleezy environment for everyone. While Early to Bed’s main mission is to sell safe sex toys, Searah has become a resource for the community for a variety of questions and topics around sexual activity. Additionally, she founded an additional resource, FTM Essentials, a non-sexual store specifically for trans men’s needs. Watch the video for a peak at one of the odder sex toys that has been delivered to Early to Bed.

Upcoming Workshops

Thursday, April 11
Great Sex Made Simple: Tantric Tips to Deepen Intimacy and Heighten Pleasure
8pm / $20 / Early To Bed / 5232 N Sheridan Rd
Many people think that studying sexual Tantra will reveal the arcane secrets of having great sex. In reality, there are no great secrets. Tantric sex has more to do with your attitude than with marathon lovemaking sessions, obscure techniques, or anything else. A simple shift in thinking is the most important element. Sex begins in the brain, and becoming familiar with a few important principles can make it easier for this shift to occur. Understanding these key concepts and incorporating a few techniques is a lot easier than you might think. In this workshop, you’ll be exposed to some basic Tantric concepts and learn some simple and practical ways to deepen your connection, both emotionally and erotically.

Friday, April 12

About Tina

A transplant from the snow and mountains of Upstate NY (why, yes, there IS an entire state above NYC!), Tina moved to Chicago in 2005. Since then, she’s taken full advantage of Chicago’s sports scene, participating in rugby, volleyball, and hockey – just to name a few. Her first love, however, is soccer. She's proud to have participated in both the 2006 and 2010 Gay Games as well as the 2009 Out Games. In addition to sports, Tina enjoys traveling (she tries to cross the atlantic at least once a year). Tina is a ‘Jackie of all trades’, so prepare for the unexpected!

  1. Searah is such a bad-ass! She has been incredibly generous to a number of organizations I work/organize for, donating fabulous toys and products, as well as funds. You rock Searah!
