Definitely online, the shop prices are rediculous.

Totally agree! Online is the way to go.

Online. They hike up the prices way too much here. Then again this is a state where dildos were once illegal to buy for gratification purposes....*plays the The More You Know jingle*

Online, definitely. I've been in the local sex toy shop twice, and the prices in there were about twice what I'd pay online even with shipping and currency conversion.

Plus, I love getting things in the post that aren't bills or junk mail.

I bought many of my toys on road trips, even though I knew I could get them cheaper online, because then I could pay cash and skip the part where I had to skulk around our mailbox all paranoid and jumpy.

However, with the help of Eden's delivery calculator, I'm finally working on my paranoia.

I really do love going into the brick and mortar stores, though. It feels daring (something which I generally am not) and it's fun to see things in person sometimes. Of course, EF's 'view actual size' feature helps there, too.

A couple of my cheaper toys were impulse buys out of sales bins, and one in particular has definitely earned its keep, because the way it fit my body assured me that the Lelo Ina would work for me -- which it does, and it rocks. I really wish EF would carry that one, so I could point people at it as a good test run for the Ina. I need to remember to add it to the 'Eden Should Carry' thread.

Where was I -- oh, right. For variety, price, and research purposes, online. But sometimes real stores are fun, especially if you happen to be in a city that has one of the high end ones.

I am 50/50...I really like to see the toys I am thinking of dropping serious cash on up close. I have, however, gone to the store and picked up some lube or something and just looked at the toys before coming here to buy them.

I rather shop online than in person. There is a far wider selection online, and I can more often find exactly what I am looking for online rather than settle for something that is *like* what I want at the store.

I like shopping online better. The selection is far better.

Totally online. Even with shipping costs up here, it is still WAY cheaper than going into any of the shops we have

I definitely shop for sex toys more online than in brick and mortar (B&M) stores. My partner and I have recently visited a couple of the local B&M stores and appreciate that they are there even though we probably won't shop there very often. It is kind of fun perusing their wares and realizing how much experience we have with a large variety of toys.

I don't know any stores around here, though the one I went in before that was near my apartment had an atmosphere that didn't really make me comfortable, so I didn't go back again. I just shop online, and I think I'd prefer to keep it that way.

Mostly online. We get spoiled with places like Eden, where things are well presented, reviewed honstly. and have a wide selection. The only time we shop in-person is when we want to see the product dimensions/shape up-close before buying, or when we're considering a gift and need to make sure it really fits the person.

I definitely prefer to buy online, but sometimes it's nice to go into a store and take a look at something in person before I make the commitment to buying it, especially if it's a pricier toy.

Online. It's easier and more discreet for me since I can't get to a shop without my dad finding out where i am.

Strictly online. I plan on checking out a brick and mortar store near me and I might buy something just for the hell of it, but I doubt it would replace online.

Online! Only because I don't have much option. The one and only sex toy shop that was near me closed. I'd have to travel 1hr 30mins to get to the closest one. And online is always cheaper here.

We have only purchased in stores a few times since we started buying stuff in the past 5 years. Probably 5 or 6 total. Since then, we have only been buying online, and will continue to do so. It is just so much easier to find what you want and to read reviews for it. Also, the only time we will go in to buy something in the future is any Liberator products like the Zeppelin and stage, since we will be living in the same city as their factory, and won't have to pay for shipping.

Online cheaper and no risk of being seen in public with a dildo.

So far, I have never shopped online and have only shopped in person. I intend to change that though with this site

Online- I'm very timid in adult stores.
