Holli is the manager at VaVaVooom, 57 Broadway in Asheville. She is our resident toy expert and sex positive warrior. "I’m passionate about sexual health and wellness for everyone. My favorite aspect about working at VVV is helping people own their sexuality." Holli served her country for many years, and loves kittens.
Jody is enthusiastic about helping clients discover the wonderful Sliquid lubricant line and will happily disclose the qualities of Sliquid's many different ph balanced, glycerine-free body safe products. "With the many body safe products now available, no one should have to use any product internally that has harmful ingredients or preservative. Sliquid even has organic and vegan products available!"
Maria is inspired by our wonderful collection of books here at VaVaVooom. " I encourage having a solid base of knowledge, with ample resources for exploring and deepening your connection with your own sexuality, spiritually and physically. Read, put into practice and never stop learning!" Maria is easy to talk with, and familiar with tantra arts & runes.
Genevieve founded VaVaVooom in 2008 to promote women's wellness and as an alternative to the typical sex shop. "I was discouraged by the ones I visited. Somehow my appreciation for sensuality, beauty and true intimacy seemed completely overlooked in favor of slat wall, bad lighting and cheap novelty products. When I discovered that a lot of the toys sold in these shops were toxic, I made a commitment to myself and my community to "do better".
With the support of the Asheville community, and especially, the ladies above, VaVaVooom has grown to fill a 3000 square foot, 1920's era shop space with high quality apparel, lingerie and intimate toys which appeal primarily to women's sensibilities. Body positive, sex positive, and gender inclusive, VaVaVooom is designed to help clients find the truest expression of the many aspects of themselves.
"I realized years ago that many of the complications in our sexual lives are too often due to lingering shame-based traditions. Spirituality is an important part of sexuality, we can look to other cultures and history to see that sexuality is celebrated beautifully at many points in time, even when playing out inevitable "shadow" elements. There is so much opportunity for personal and relational growth in adult play, whether solo or partnered. Keep exploring, and Be Kind!!"
