If you read Milwaukee Record with any regularity, you’re likely familiar with the name Lucky Tomaszek. Our resident MKE SEX columnist is better known as the Education Coordinator at The Tool Shed, “An Erotic Boutique” that’s become an East Side staple and Midwestern mainstay since opening in 2004. On top of its wide array of offerings, Tool Shed is Milwaukee’s only mission-driven, education-focused sex toy store. Tomaszek is a large parts of what helps set the sex shop apart from the rest.
After taking host Tyler Maas on a tour of the store, Tomaszek sat down with him to discuss Tool Shed’s inventory, kinks, gender identity, sexuality, consent, and misconceptions both customers and society as a whole have. They also talked about PrideFest, which will feature The Tool Shed workshops and presentations, along with a variety of music, comedy, and dance parties hosted by Milwaukee Record over the course of the weekend.
