Bliss for Women was founded by Maureen Matthews in 1996. Maureen, who is legally blind, and the mother of 3 adult sons, has been with her partner for over 30 years. Looking for a new challenge as her sons grew up, Maureen wanted to offer a safe and informative environment for women to shop for books and products that cater to their specific needs. Maureen realised that most businesses dealing with sexuality were primarily for men, were sleazy, and offered little for women, or men in longterm relationships. As a retired teacher, she also wanted to educate and empower women in all areas of their sexuality.
Maureen also writes the popular sex & relationship advice column About Last Night in the Melbourne newspaper The Sunday Age, This column is also syndicated to many Fairfax websites.
After 19 years, Bliss for Women is acknowledged by health professionals, counselors, women’s support groups and by the lesbian community, as an invaluable resource for women and couples seeking to enhance their experience of sex. We also have thousands of happy, loyal customers who often tell how pleased they are that Bliss for Women exists.
