So, New York’s glory days as a seedy mecca for sex stores, sex shows, sex everything, have long since passed us by. Many would argue that this is actually for the best. Also, there’s a little thing called “the internet” that has stepped in to fill a lot of those needs. It’s worth checking out, if you haven’t been.
However, there’s still a lot to be said for the good, old-fashioned, brick-and-mortar sex shop. The browsing opportunities! The knowledgable staff! The somewhat uncomfortable possibility of running into someone you know! It’s all good. And, as with almost any given specialty service, Brooklyn does the sex shop very, very well. Whether you need the fanciest lingerie you’ve ever owned, or have a question you’ve been too embarrassed to add to your Google cache, we’ve rounded up the best for every occasion.
