Visiting the Adult Toy Store

Thank you so much for inviting me on Silken Sheets, Sorcha! It’s such a pleasure to be here.

Today I want to talk about the adult toy store. I know many people I know will gasp and blush just thinking about going into a store like that. I used to be one of those people. Heck, I’d never even seen a dildo until I went to a Fantasia party one of my friends hosted. Even after that, I was still very prudish. I can admit it. And then I started reading erotic romance, introduced to me by the original ladies of Six Sentence Sunday. Well, my eyes were opened to a whole different world, and a lot of fun.

Now, when it comes to the adult toy store, I’ve had different experiences with each one I’ve been in. When my husband and I were on our honeymoon (2 years ago), we visited the adult store there. I think this is the type of store that makes people never want to return. It was a small store consisting of two rooms of merchandise. The first room we walked into was a bit bigger, and the walls were lined with porn videos, with racks filled in the middle as well. Whatever you were looking for, it was there. The second room was where the toys were. They didn’t have a wide selection, and the clerk stared at us as if we were going to grab something and run. Maybe they’ve had that happen. I don’t know. We were the only people in the store, and felt very uncomfortable looking around.  We paid for some toys and lube, and left as quickly as possible.

Another store we’ve visited was a much more enjoyable experience. They had a huge variety of toys, lubes, cleaners, and lingerie, with a small selection of videos. It was a busy place, and while the clerks kept an eye on their customers, they never made us want to run.

The best adult toy store I’ve been to is the one right in town. The clerk is so friendly that she makes my husband and I feel welcome whether we’re in there by ourselves or together. She answers all of our “weird” questions without laughing or looking at us strange, and she lets us try out the products. Not literally, but we can take them out of the package to feel them and see how they work. They have a lot of BDSM equipment there, too, and custom make leather items and more. It’s the kind of store that makes me want to keep going back, and I’m never embarrassed to walk inside.

So, tell me about your adult toy store experiences.
