Venus Envy was founded in spring 1998 by ShelleyTaylor? on Inglis Street in Halifax.

I envisioned a place where people could feel at ease browsing sex toys, reading books about sex, and gathering for community events. In 1999 the store moved to it's current location on Barrington Street where we tripled our size and started offering regular workshops as an ongoing series. In January 2001 we opened a store in Ottawa and then in 2005 moved that store to the Ottawa gayborhood.

Venus Envy's 10th anniversary story ran on page 1 of the May 2008 issue of WayvesMagazine.

Both stores offer books, toys, safer sex products and a popular sex education workshop series. We have frequent store events including readings, speakers from out of town, and other community events.
