How often do you purchase off site products?

I live in Houston and most of the stores here are surrounded with creepy people so I rarely shop at any of them, choosing to do my shopping online. What about you? How often do you shop at local adult stores? Pick whichever is closest.

In the year I have been here I have only bought one toy, that was in a different state. I find no reason to go anywhere else.

I usually buy my storage products and lube off site. I like to be able to check out the containers first hand and I don't always keep a close eye on lube levels so sometimes we run out and a trip to a store is needed.

It can be fun to browse what the local stores have once in a while too

There just aren't very many adult stores close to me, so I wind up going online for most of my purchases.

I used to visit the Ann Summers store all the time when we lived in the UK, typically found in all malls and high streets, Ann Summers was just like any other store to walk in, which is pretty cool. I noticed since being here in the states, though, that most Adult stores are warehouse type buildings which gives it a seedy feeling. Although there was an exception when we were in Vegas...that was like adult store heaven!
We've moved, recently, and I couldn't even tell you where our nearest adult store is. I've no need to find out now I have Eden Fantasys to help me spend all my money.

I do miss Ann Summers, though, and their home parties.

Our stores are kind of skeevy so I don't like to go in them. I've reviewed for Babeland but that's slowly coming to an end. I pretty much am an exclusive EFer. The only way I can see myself purchasing anywhere but EF is if they don't carry something I really, REALLY want.

I used to make regular purchases online at other sites and at a couple local stores, but since finding Eden that has all changed. Since beginning the review program we get all of our toys from Eden. We have purchased some lingerie elsewhere though.

I sometimes get things off Canadian sites because of muuuuch cheaper shipping, and sometimes they have things EF doesn't. There's also a really nice store in toronto that's very sex-positive, friendly and non-creepy. They're really awesome, so I like to support them even if they're more expensive and have a smaller selection.

I probably buy in the store every other month or so. This past Sat. I bought the Liberator Axis Hitachi and a Dream Girl Corset out of the new line. I would have preferred to buy them here at Eden, but Eden carries neither of the products I wanted. God knows I would have paid a lot less if they did though.

The people do not seem so creepy when I shop during the day. At night, they come out of the wood-work.

There are enough products that eden doesn't carry that I shop elsewhere fairly often.

What? There are adult toy stores beyond EF?

I only buy things from my local toy store if I'm about to have a play partner over and realize I need something vital like lube or condoms that don't suck.

I'm lucky enough to live in the Bay Area with a great sex shop so I go as often as I can

Since joining Eden I haven't purchased any toys from anywhere else. Before Eden I purchased my first toy from Amazon.

I would like to get 3 toys that have been discontinued and are no longer on Eden, so I may purchase them from somewhere else; The Fun Factory Wave, the Vixskin Orbit and Soft Serve.

I think the only times I've gone to other shops is when I'm out with a friend and they suggest it, and I cave to some impulse buy. As far as truly intended purchases, I'm pretty happy sticking with Eden.

I've never been in a sex shop. I'm pretty shy and Eden meets all my needs. (Except for the discontinued toys I'm super duper curious about).

One time in the past year. We were on a trip and decided spur of the moment to get something fun to spice it up. Usually I just shop online.

I will a few times a year drop into the local stores and check out what they have. Usually buy something spur of the moment but most times I don't like it

Good Vibrations. I go there a lot to pick up condoms and erotica, and I browse a lot of things so I can come back here and order them later.

Only a couple of times since joining here. But at the rate things are going, I will be buying a lot more within AU cause when I buy an item - I want it ASAP ... not 3 weeks later!

When I lived in Seattle there was a very sex-positive store owned by a group of lesbians that I would go to a few times a year. Since moving south (and into a small college town where I don't want to risk running into coworkers) I feel a little more uncomfortable going into a physical toy store. I usually by from EF unless a product is either not available or out of stock and then I have to look elsewhere.

My side of town is small enough that if someone didn't see me in there, they would still recognize my car.

There are no real quality brick and mortar stores here. So if I want the selection, the reviews, etc. I have to come here. And so I do!

If I find it for a great price elsewhere, I'll scoop up a toy but that isn't often.
