About

Shawna Scott with all her Sex Siopa awards and sex toys

Sex Siopa is Ireland's multi-award winning, health and design focused, online sex shop!

Our goal is to give our customers the best experience possible by stocking bodysafe, well designed toys and accessories as well as providing them with current, up-to-date information about toy care, safe sex, and the products themselves.

“Bodysafe” refers to toys made from materials known to be safe for internal use. Sex Siopa stock only bodysafe toys. You can learn more on our Bodysafe Toys page.

100% Irish small business: owned by an Irish citizen, operating from Ireland. Our online shop is based in the Sandyford Industrial Estate in Dublin. 

Cool stuff: You'll find links to campaigns, blogs, podcasts and other interesting stuff on the Things we like page.

Customer Service: While we do not have a physical shop, we try our very best to be accessible and approachable, and we'd love to answer any of your questions or hear your comments. We're committed to finding the best toys for each individual customer, so if you're not sure what toy to choose, please feel free to contact us at hello@sexsiopa.ie or reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook. 

Discreet Shipping: The vast majority of our orders are shipped next day, and all orders are registered and trackable. Our shipping is also totally discreet and while Sex Siopa is a rather "loud and proud" company, we will never put our name on the outside of your parcel.

About the Owner: Sex Siopa is owned and operated by Shawna Scott, who started it to provide the kind of shopping experience she personally wanted and couldn't find in Ireland. She wanted a shop that sold only bodysafe sex toys and was welcoming and inclusive to people of all body types, genders, and sexualities. To date she has won multiple awards for her work:

  • SME Awards 2016 - Best Online Retailer for the Irish Market
  • SME Awards 2015 - Best Online Retailer for the Irish Market
  • IE Domain Registry Optimise Award - 2014
  • Web Awards 2013 - Best eCommerce Site

She has also been featured on radio, television, podcasts, and print and enjoys talking about sex and sex toys at events and on panel discussions. For a full list of media appearances, please have a look at our Media page.

When she's not selling sex toys around Ireland, Shawna loves doing embroidery, going on road trips, and eating the last biscuit.
