Babeland

    Babeland may be the first adult store in which you feel comfortable. Why? It's actually adult, as in mature. The store stocks everything from condoms and lubes to exotic motorized devices and good old whips and chains, but the best part is you’ll be more likely to buy than to snicker. Babeland has ingeniously replaced the inflatable novelties and creepy clerks at most adult stores with practical tools and a staff of friendly, knowledgeable salespeople that you might expect in a drugstore. Co-founder Claire Cavanah, who started Babeland in Seattle in 1993, branched out in New York five years later. “For a city that had everything, [New York] didn’t have any sex-positive, woman-friendly sex shops. It was wide open for our message,” said Cavanah, who eventually opened stores in Soho, the Lower East Side, and Park Slope. What you’ll find is a terrific selection of high-end modern sex toys, especially designer vibrators that combine compact, submergible motors with the latest materials.Show lessRead more
