This female-oriented sex-toy shop is more straightforward and empowering than seedy, thanks to the open, nonjudgmental attitude of the staff (who own the place, incidentally; this is a woman-owned, worker-owned co-operative). Even if you’re not in the market for any new gadgets, stop by to see the on-site vibrator museum. Open Sunday through Fri 10am–9pm; Saturday 10am–10pm.
