Female-friendly and home-grown sex-toy retailer Good Vibrations has a new store in Oakland. Reality TV star, R&B musician, and newly minted sexpert Kandi Burruss has a new line of sexual products. Where do the two intersect? Well, literally speaking, in Oakland later this month. Good Vibes plans to have Burruss on hand for the grand opening part at its new location on Lakeshore on January 28. We'd say she's a good fit.

Burruss was in the 1990s R&B group Xscape before writing girl-positive international chart-toppers for TLC ("No Scrubs") and Destiny's Child ("Bills, Bills, Bills") and landing in her current spot on television via Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta. Her own reality special, The Kandi Factory, where she'll look for promising amateur musical talent, is forthcoming.

In recent seasons of Housewives, she's started to brand herself as something of a sexpert via a podcast, and she has recently launched Bedroom Kandi, her own line of sex toys and intimate products. Some of them are concealed in clever packages that are disguised to look like makeup, such as lipstick and a compact.

Besides Burruss, the party will feature a Wheel of Pleasure to spin for free prizes, including Bedroom Kandi items, and a photo booth for embarrassing evidence. You might also be pushed in the direction of Easy Lounge, six doors away, if you want to continue the celebration with cocktails afterward.

Good Vibes in 2011 opened a new location in downtown San Francisco. The Oakland location is its second in the East Bay and sixth overall.

The Good Vibrations grand opening celebration starts at 6 p.m. at 3219 Lakeshore, Oakland. Admission is free.
