The walls and floors are stark white, lit only by harsh fluorescent lights overhead — envision it like a tiny, dildo-selling Wal-Mart. The night we visited, the only employee on duty was a leery man in his late 30's smoking outside the backdoor. He hears the bell when we enter, but comes inside only to lock eyes with me and grunt in recognition before returning to his smoke break. Even after he finishes his cigarette and returns to the cash wrap, he doesn't speak to us.
This was, admittedly, our first stop of the night, but I can't in good conscience recommend this place. This was the first adult store I had ever entered and I was apprehensive to say the least. The atmosphere of this place didn't help. From unappealing displays to the creepy cashier, I was uncomfortable staying very long in there. But I knew what he meant, and I agreed. Intimate Treasures was clearly a departure from the poorly named Love Shack. Unlike our previous stop, this store was warm and inviting, though admittedly feminine.
The lube display was sizable and magnificent. The entire store were very well stocked, although they did lean toward the tame. The girl behind the register was awesome, though. She gave us free concert tickets. Although the walls were the color of my 9-year-old cousin's doll house and I felt like I was inside of Liberace's mother's vagina, it was a very comfortable experience. When I entered Fantasy World, I locked eyes with the sales clerk behind the counter and she immediately took me on a tour of the store.
She led me into the toy aisles behind the register and showed me a 24K solid gold vibrator. The clerk also showed me a life-size female doll made of a material called Cyber skin. Simply put, Fantasy World probably sells anything you might want.
This place was the Best Buy of adult stores. The manager was not joking around when she gave us a tour. Adult Video Super Store Creepiness: At first glance, Adult Video Superstore looked seedy. It's located on the side of a highway and admittedly, it doesn't offer much in the way of toys, lingerie or costumes.
Only the corners of the room contained anything but rows of DVDs. This is your paradise. Moreover, the store's mustard yellow walls complete with red glittery accents lettering! Shag carpet wouldn't not have been out of place. Hovering near the front was the shopkeeper, an older woman who described AVSS's wares as "just a bunch of fun stuff. Multiply the joy you felt there as a year-old and replace Toy Story with Busty Babes 6.
Best selection, largest facility, great experience. They had lots of products I didn't see elsewhere, including a bondage bed which was more like an enormous black bean bag with leather straps.
The variety at this store was killer and they had testers displayed for just about everything - including a male sex toy called the Fleshlight, a truly impressive feat of human engineering. While I was there, the cashier was training a new employee and drilling her on sex terminology, so these people know their stuff.
Moreover, the whole experience was incredibly comfortable. I felt at ease, much like I do at Cracker Barrel. Run of the mill store for this seasoned vet of vendors of vices. Good selection, nice facility, but nothing out of the ordinary as adult stores go. Want a more discreet buying method? If you want to shop online, you can actually buy from those hip chain stores I mentioned earlier, Good Vibes and Babeland.
Most of these retailers offer discreet shipping and sometimes even discreet billing to match.
