Two days ago, I had to take my Dad to the city to get his check ups from his DR.'s. While he was in his appointment, naughty girl that I am, I found the Adam & Eve adult store and decided to browse and make yet one more wishlist after I had actually seen some of the toys in person. Of course, while I was there, you know how it is, I figured I would cheat on Eden and (gasp!!!) buy something that caught my eye.

Well, the GASP!!! was on me!!! Are you aware that EF is about 1/4 or more under the price of the chain store on ALL the lingerie, most of the lubes and every toy that was not sale priced. The sale prices were comparable to EF and they had 12 items on the table. The sad part, I already own all twelve of them.

I do have to say it was worth my time for a few different reasons, and it isn't like I had alot to do. Either wait in a waiting room or feed my addiction. The benefits were:

1. I got to see the actual lingerie item or toy in person and know exactly what color, size, material or other detail was actually like. I do have to say, I am making a bunch of new purchases and getting rid of a few things on my wishlists.

2. I was able to try on the lingerie in the store and know what I am going to order in the near future.

3. THANK YOU EF FOR BEING SUCH AN AMAZING SITE!!! I would not be able to afford new toys or lingerie at the retail prices. You guys are very appreciated!!!

I live in an area where adult stores are few and far between. The state probably has about 5 at most. Anyway, they mostly carry overpriced junk, still too many jelly type toys and the stores just look and feel so seedy!
I steer many of my friends to EF but most join so I have earned very few commissions but really so what?

Eden is, by far, the best adult retailer I have ever found. And no I'm not saying that just because I work here. I was a contributor, reviewer, editor and Eden Gives back volunteer before I was brought into the company at the beginning of this year. I have never been so invested in a community or company before and I was constantly talking about this place and milestones I reached.


I look at the other retailers and they have a great business model but they aren't interested in the same things that Edenfantasys is interested in. It's a no-brainer for me! And we're certainly glad you enjoy EF as much as you do!

We visit a local store once in a while. I like to be able to physically see the toys I am interested in. I haven't ever compared prices, because I never buy anything there. I just look and then come here and read reviews of whatever caught my attention.

The staff is nice in the local store, but they cannot compete with the knowledge that is found here. I love Eden's.

I do feel slightly guilty for never buying anything there...but only slightly and the feeling always fades as soon as we leave the parking lot.

I will often compare edens prices to other online retailers and have noticed same as you that Edens prices are lower than everyone elses, and that is not including the sale prices, even their base prices are lower. Then add in sales and points and holy crap do they give us good deals!

I totally agree, my local store carries mostly cheep crap and I recently went on the Adam & Eve website (I had an awesome coupon code don't judge me!!!) but even with my coupon (50% off and free shipping with a free surprise gift and 3 movies [its "sexnerd" if you're interested btw]) the price was only then comparable to Eden. Eden lists the toy at around $60 while Adam and Eve had it for a whopping $90. Needless to say I won't be venturing past eden again anytime soon.

I came to Eden because of customer service. I had purchased something online from another retailer..It stopped working after less than a week, sent it back- it didn't work out of the box..sent it back- they sent another one that didn't work and when I tried to order something different I was told by customer service that it wasn't worth it to have me as a customer becuase they were spending so much money on shipping because of me. BECAUSE OF ME! Was it my fault that their products weren't working? Was it my fault that they kept shipping me defective products? Since when do you blame the customer because you sell defective merchandise?

When it came time to buy another toy, I looked around and all I found was Eden. Everywhere else seemed to only want your money or they had sucky customer service.

Eden has GREAT customer service!
Eden has GREAT prices!
Eden has a GREAT community!
I will be an Eden fan FOR LIFE!

I use to only purchase from another online site. Which is why I only had a handful of toys. I would spend crazy amount of money just in one order and I would not have very reliable reviews to go off of. Shipping alone was $10.00. I got many toys that were junk. I was not educated on safety of materials either. I love EF. Everything here is so much better than any place I have ever find. I even tried purchasing at our local store. They carry too many items I would never use and the lady behind the counter is very pushy at my local store. I hated being in there with a bunch of sword like realistic dildos all over the place and the lady bringing me so many to hold telling me here this one is like the real thing. UMMM..Lady I told you I am just looking for a traditional plastic vibe. Listen to me. I like being at home and being able to read the reviews, so I can pick what I like and hear how they are.

Exactly!! I have been so spoiled by Eden that when I went in there I was just pushed back in time. I could afford a few Rockets and Cock rings, a vibe or two every couple months and lingerie....Kmart. (Obviously there are exceptions, but what I just stated about our habits are completely true. Thank goodness we had subscribed to and adult video download site or we would have been low on porn, too!!

By the way, wrmbreeze, what happened to your avatar--I almost didn't recognize you!

I hadn't really been to an adult store before, but me and my Dom went to two of them when we went on a trip last weekend. All I can say is yuck! They were both so sketchy inside and super expensive. I'm glad I have EF to shop at!

I believe you about Adam&Eve my cousin introduced me to that site. I looked at it a couple times and can say that I am glad I came by EF as well. I need to actually mention EF to my cousin because I totally forgot about A&E until I seen your post.

Biggest advantage of Eden over retail for toys, are the real world user reviews. You folks who write reviews make it easier to decide between similar toys, and often provide the push I need when I can't make up my mind.

During Porn Club last night a contributor by the name of LostinIdaho had the same avatar and it was confusing to everybody else, so I changed it last night. I like it!

There's some nice stores downtown, but the prices usually keep me from getting anything aside from lube or traditional vibes. Whenever I look at the good toys, all I can think is, "I can get it cheaper from Eden." Though it is extremely nice sometimes to be able to see and feel a toy first, and window-shopping is always fun.

In Chicago there are a few quite nice shops but for overall competitive pricing EF really is the best choice. But yes, I too sometimes like to see a toy in person.

I had a similar experience after going to an adult store in my area. I was surprised to see some of the prices compared to Eden doubled. It's one of those moments when you think you must spend too much time on Eden when you can say that's such and such less on Eden compared to this place. I stopped a friend from getting something and told her to just come here and order it.

I have to admit that I have noticed this too, everywhere ha! My wife and I have been looking into lingerie for her for a while now. She keeps losing weight, gaining weight, losing, etc. So she is constantly on the look out for a few new pieces here and there to boost her spirits. When her and I were looking on A&E, we realized "Omg we can't afford lingerie for you!" or there was only one we could get at atime because of the prices.

When we came here, to Eden, we were shocked at how cheap (price, not quality) some of the lingerie was! She of course is completely in a tizzy and can't wait to order a few at a time.

I am thankful too for Eden. I feel that my wife and I have been able to really reach out to one another and open up sexually. We have been able to try things (at a much lower cost) and find our niche's in the bedroom.

Theres tons of things that we were wanting to try but couldn't find at a good price elsewhere, so of course those fantasies or fetishes went to the back burner.

Those stores are a rip off FYI. Its not just A&E, we have a Cirilla's near us (used to be Priscilla's?) and they are WAY over priced. We walked in, and immidiately walked right back out after seeing some of the price tags. No friggen way!
