3 Tips for Men on Their First Trip to a Sex Toy Store

For the uninitiated, or for those who rarely go, going to a sex toy store can be a strange experience. You are walking into a world filled with adult films, magazines, sex toys and lingerie. For many people, this is the thing you’ve been hiding but secretly lusting after for years. It can be overwhelming to take it all in, and you may be at a loss for how to keep your composure. Here are some handy trip tips for your next sex shop visit.

Be A Gentleman

Be A GentlemanSex toy stores are a great place for women to get lingerie, lube and sex toys. Because of this, you may see women shopping during your visit. If you’re single, you might get the idea to strike up a conversation with one of these shoppers. That’s fine, but keep your wits about you. You may be a pervert in the bedroom, but you should keep that to yourself when talking to anyone before getting to know them. You will be sure to get better results by showing respect rather than using dirty talk. Being in a sex toy store isn’t an invitation to act as if consent and respect don’t matter.

If you are married, or in a relationship, you might visit a sex shop with your significant other to buy sex toys or videos. Your partner may be bashful about visiting a sex shop, so it is important to not embarrass them or make them uncomfortable in any way. A tandem visit to the sex shop is likely meant to spice things up in the bedroom. That is not the kind of thing you should jeopardize, so you should be on your best behavior.

Don’t Be Bashful

Don't Be BashfulWhether it’s your first time or it’s been a while, it’s normal to feel out of place in such an establishment. However, you’re there for a reason, so it is best to eliminate that feeling of discomfort as fast as possible. Just enjoy the experience of being in the store, surrounded by all the ways you can experience sexual pleasure. Open up to the sights and sounds (maybe the taste and smell too!) of the sex shop. Not only will you get what you came for, but you just might learn something.

Consult The Staff

Do not be afraid to ask any employees questions. After all, this is a whole new world for you, and they can guide you through it. They will not only be likely to know a lot about their products and where they are located, but they will do it with zero judgment. After all, they see all walks of life enter their store, and you will probably have to go out of your way to shock or embarrass them.


A visit to a sex toy store can be a titillating and rewarding experience, but that all depends on you. If you walk in with a timid attitude, you won’t have a good time. If you come in with an open mind, your experience will be much more positive. Just make sure you are not bashful, be a gentleman to anyone you encounter and don’t be afraid to talk to the staff if you have any questions. If a visit to a sex shop is in your future, make sure to follow this advice. You’ll be glad you did.
