Where Adult Items are Bought Online

When it comes to finding and purchasing adult materials, the online market has become king (or queen). These online sellers offer an endless variety of items for all shapes, sizes, interests, and persuasions. Most ship them in discrete packaging to not alert or offend the neighbors while also giving you privacy. Some of the biggest online retailers when doing a general Google search are:




Pure Romance

These sites are listed in no particular order, preference, or purpose. Even Amazon and Walmart sell a ton of sex toys online.

Brick and Mortar Adult Stores

While online sales are bigger than ever, brick-and-mortar stores are still going strong, including right here in Western New York and the Niagara Region. Chances are you've seen the stores, too. They don't always have an obvious name that tells you they are an adult store, but are often seen having blacked-out windows. Some are in off-the-beaten-path areas. Some are in what many would consider to be seedy locations. There are even adult stores on main routes, like Niagara Falls Boulevard where thousands drive past every day. Not all stores are equal either. Some are clean, highly respected businesses that have well-thought-of members of the community as clients. Other stores may very well give you the "ick."

Adult stores offer a variety of items. These include toys, aids, lingerie, and movies. While women dominate the adult toy market, the male market is growing. Film has always been very popular for men as well. You can find something for any gender, let alone interest, in these stories.

Going to adult-only stores remains popular throughout the country, often for the novelty of it. Also for practicality, immediacy, and the fact some people like to see and hold what they are buying.

One thing is for sure for anyone who is a millennial and older: your introduction to such things happened at Spencer's Gifts at most malls. You know it's true! Spencer's is still going, and now big stores like Wegmans, Walmart, and Target carry adult items. It's becoming more and more common.
