Interested in visiting a sex shop but not sure what to expect? This piece will touch on some of the qualities that make a difference between a creepy sex shop and an empowering one. Be sure you’re going to a reputable shop for body-safe sex toys!
I had the pleasure of stopping by a boutique in Alexandria called Lotus Blooms while at a sexuality conference down in VA. The sex toys were all body-safe, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was everything I could ask for in a sex shop.
The Leather Man is an interesting sex shop in the West Village of New York. As you can likely gather from its name, it has a large gay male clientele. Still, that didn’t stop me and four friends (none of which are gay men) from checking it out on a day in the city.
Two friends from New York show me one of their favorite sex shops in the city. Find out what makes Purple Passion/DV8 such a huge hit with NYC kinksters!
Located in Cambridge, MA, Hubba Hubba is a sex shop with a lot of character. From sex toys to kink gear to clothes and shoes–they have it all!
I take my best friend on Sex Tour with me but they can’t all be great shops, can they? Condom World turns out to be less magical than we expected.
Who can resist a stop at an erotic bakery? During a day-trip in the Boston area, my best friend and I decided to pop into Sweet N’ Nasty for a treat. The visit was definitely amusing–and more importantly, tasty.
Very Intimate Pleasures (VIP) was my very first experience with sex toys. Now, eight years later and fully educated on sex toys, I set off for another visit. Oh, the nostalgia!
Next stop on my Sex Tour: Oh My Sensuality Shop in Northampton, MA. I was very pleased with the selection and staff of this small business.
I’ve read enough about Good Vibrations over the years to know they have a good reputation but I’ve sadly never been to one…until now!
