Storerotica Lubricant Company of the Year Wicked Sensual Care is shining its Retail Employee Spotlight on Toni Kennedy, ACS of Alabama’s Enchantasys, centrally located at 2203 University Drive NW in Huntsville. The boutique’s commitment to health and wellness is being spearheaded by Toni, affectionately known as the ‘Pro Sex Nerd.’ She is an American College of Sexologists-Certified Relationship and Sex Coach, and can be found in the store championing accessible education for all.
“In 2007, I was shopping for a friend’s party and wandered into a local adult store,” said Toni, reflecting on the genesis of her journey into the sexual wellness space. “I was saving for culinary school and got a part time job. Needless to say I fell in love with the industry.”
Thanks to Toni and her knowledgeable staff, Enchantasys in Huntsville has earned dozens of rave reviews on Google, Yelp, and Facebook, with one five-star Yelp review stating, “Toni and her staff always make you feel comfortable in her store. She has lingerie for real women and can always help you find exactly what you need to spice things up. She also carries CBD and other supplements. This business is 100% woman-owned and operated and I always want to support that. This is a place where everyone can feel comfortable.”
Toni values the opportunities Enchantasys provides to bring focused and inclusive sexual health and wellness literacy to her local community. “My goal has always been to create spaces that are focused on sex positivity and educational experiences. The best part about my career will always be normalizing sex and sexuality and all that it encompasses. I want anyone I have the pleasure of speaking with to feel safe, affirmed, empowered, and creative. My specialty has been my classes and events.” (Visit the Enchantasys Events page to learn more about upcoming workshops.)
“As an accredited sexual health educator, Toni ensures the information taught to customers is credible and evidence based, and most importantly, takes place in a safe space, which she and Enchantasys provide,” observed Wicked Sensual Care Sales Director Jennifer Brice. “This creates a forum where members of the public can feel comfortable and seen, and they are free to ask questions about themselves, their relationships, and their partners that they may have never asked otherwise. The education Toni provides encourages people to make safe, informed, and fun decisions about their sexual health.”
Skilled in communication, listening, collaboration, adaptability, empathy, and patience, Toni believes other characteristics of effective sex education include having an engaging presence in the community, stressing the value in real-world learning, and an overall lifelong love for sharing knowledge on how to have a healthy, safe, pleasure-based, and fun sex life. “My best advice is ‘Never stop finding new ways to feel good!’”
