Where are your Sex Shops?

Sorta like the outlet malls on the edge or over the edge of town, it seems like sex shops get grouped together in certain distinct locations. In Sacramento, there are two districts which have emerged as the sexiest parts of town.


The first is Del Paso Heights, an under-redeveloped stretch on the north end outskirts of midtown.

The second clump of sex shops is centered an industrial warehouse district at Sunrise and Folsom Boulevard. This group of shops have a, uh, stage show focus with a sexy retail shops attached.

Are your town's sex shops and strip clubs clumped together on the fringes like this?

Area: On Broadway, at the edge of Little Italy    City: San Francisco

There are about 7 or 8 sex shops and a couple of strip bars. The streets are packed on the weekends with regular tourists though. It is extremely non-threatening.

Area: Everywhere    City: Sydney, Australia

I can"t say that my suburb is the most conservative suburb, but it"s not the least. There"s at least one that I know of. And, well, there are more sex shops in the CBD than anywhere else I"ve noticed. You definitely don"t need to go far before you hit one.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 1:28 am

Area: Downtown and North End    City: Bellingham, WA

We have a sex shop in the middle of our downtown, surrounded by shops and restaurants, just hanging out. There are also two "lovers" stores on the north end of town. We don"t have strip clubs though.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 2:48 am

Area: Old Port    City: Portland

There is a sex shop called Condom Sense in the Old Port region of Portland. Also, there is a strip club on Riverside Street in Portland, and a new topless donut shop up in Northern Maine. Personally? I"ve never been to any of them.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 3:37 am

Area: Nowhere    City: Columbus

As far as I know, there are no strip clubs or sex shops here. How boring.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 4:09 am

Area: Small shopping center    City: Arlington

There is a condom sense store in a newer shopping center. Its in between a salon and a Chinese buffet.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 5:30 am

Area: Near the bypass    City: Charlottesville

Ours is actually right in the middle of everything, but it manages to escape notice. Then again, in a town 30 miles away, the porn shop was shut down after an obscenity trial. They were selling the same kind of porn as everyone else, but they still got fingered. Sad.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 6:02 am

Area: Route 130    City: Florence

Sex shops tend to accumulate around the two lanes-per-side blacktop highway, also home to many defunct fast food restaurants, go-go bars, liquor stores and abandoned strip malls or shopping centers, most with off-brand storefront baptist churches.

New Jersey
Saturday 07th of March 2009 6:52 am

Area: Highway 82 about 4 miles south of town    City: Tuscaloosa

Fantasyland seems to do pretty brisk business, but then again, it is the only game in town. They"re open 10-10 Monday through Saturday, but they close at 5 on Sundays.I assume so they can make to church in the evening. It is in the Bible Belt.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 7:12 am

Area: Right across from the library    City: Sioux Falls

There are a couple of new-fangled shops on the various outskirts of town, for for the more...literary...porno, you just go across the street and down the block from the Main Branch of the library to Studio One.

South Dakota
Saturday 07th of March 2009 7:17 am

Area: South along I-94    City: Milwaukee, WI

Milwaukee"s sex shops are all strung out south of town along I-94. They start right north of the Illinois border.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 7:26 am

Area: Industrial district    City: Stuart

We have a sex shop [lost] in the middle of nowhere in the mess that is the industrial district and there"s a strip club that recently got renamed in a strip mall to the north. Once was with a friend dropping off a neighbor girl to interview at the sex shop... all us guys opted to wait in the car for her interview (tho we were 18). She returned saying another old acquaintance works there.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 8:04 am

Area: Everywhere    City: Calgary, Alberta

There are three sex shops on my way back from work. One is in an area of the city that could be classified as "Uptown", another is tucked into a fairly discrete place under an overpass, but next to a shortcut. The last one is interesting: It sits in the property of a failed pawn shop, next to an awesome vietnamese food place, and... a children"s haircut salon.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 8:13 am

Area: Along I-35E, formerly along SH-12    City: Dallas, TX

"Sexually oriented businesses" used to be clumped together like that here, but the city passed an ordinance prohibiting them from being within a mile of each other, so now they"re pretty spread out. However, they"re also prohibited from being within a mile of a school, which means they tend to be found hidden in industrial districts and office parks.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 8:22 am

Area: 11-E On the 4 lane just down from Walmart    City: Greeneville

Saturday 07th of March 2009 8:28 am

Area: 2x strip mall on rt. 30    City: Merrillville

there are 2 Lover"s Lane stores on rt 30 (Merrillville and Schererville)...there"s also another one at Broadway and rt 30 in Merrillville. They"re all in high-traffic, highly visible areas. I know of some that are on the outskirts on rt 20 in the Portage/Gary area...right off of 80-94, just north of all the truck stops.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 8:41 am

Area: In the Illinois Quad Cities there are two bookstores and a strip club; one bookstore is definitely in the seedy area, the other is in a popular nightclub area called "The District".. On the Iowa side, there are several strip clubs, distributed all over. One, for example, is across the street from NorthPark Mall, a major shopping center.    City: Quad Cities

Nobody around here gets all bent out of shape over the strip clubs, etc. Those places work hard to keep themselves out of the news.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 9:22 am

Area: North Hollywood, on Lankershim    City: Burbank

There"s a porn shop in North Hollywood just a little bit west of us. It"s called ODYSSEY VIDEO and it"s near a Toyota Dealership and some car stereo places. There"s also a pirate store over there. I think there are some sexy dancing places in NoHo but Odyssey Video is the only one I see on my way home from pilates.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 9:45 am

Area: There is a clump of strip joints a few blocks from the airport, and a large video store along I-10 near the Hghway 60 exit.    City: Phoenix, AZ

Saturday 07th of March 2009 10:29 am

Area: Broadway    City: Sacramento

How could you forget L"Amour Shoppe!!?!?

Saturday 07th of March 2009 11:40 am

Area: 5th Street/Dixie Strip    City: Dayton

5th street is downtown, its the Oregon District, aka bars, restauraunts, cobblestone streets, the works. But there are still fun little sex shops and pretty much anything you could want. The Dixie Strip is north of Dayton, right before Vandalia. There are literally 5-10 in a row. Oh, and a sex shop too.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 11:43 am

Area: Downtown at Fairfield and Superior    City: Fort Wayne

They add happy fun sexy time for the Midwestern holy rollers.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 1:19 pm

Area: 377 West    City: Outside of Benbrook, TX

About 7 miles southwest of Benbrook is a little village of Wheatland, which is made up entirely of Tattoo parlors, sex shops, gas stations, and junk stores. There"s even a shooting range. All the sex shops have blacked out windows and yellow lights, the tell-tale sign of high quality service. One even has a giant armor knight standing guard out front.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 1:33 pm

Area: downtown    City: Fitchburg

We have one strip club (the other side) and one "novelty shop" (conquest video) They are both located on opposite sides of downtown fitchburg.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 1:57 pm

Area: 435 West North Side    City: Kansas City

Erotic City provides the best in service by not being located in any actual police jurisdiction. No cops+ strip club= scary place to drive by!

Saturday 07th of March 2009 1:58 pm

Area: Route 7, 66 Sugar Hollow Road    City: Danbury

This is where you can buy all your tawdry lingerie and naughty toy needs. They actually have some lovely tasteful stuff too. There"s also the "back room" but my friends and I have never been in THERE where supposedly a swing is set up for "display purposes." Along with more hard core adult toys and films. We"ve seen a few guys run back there and in about 10 mins. run back out. "nuff said

Saturday 07th of March 2009 2:32 pm

Area: Northeast, but lots of other areas too    City: Portland

We have the most strip clubs per capita of any city in the U.S. Or so I"ve been told. Not sure about sex shops but Spartacus on Burnside is my favorite. It"s My Pleasure is great too.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 3:17 pm

Area: on 68 in Golden valley    City: Kingman

Open 24 hours, with big rig parking. I guess so the lot-lizards don"t have to fight over territory at the truck stop.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 4:52 pm

Area: W Sunshine St., between Scenic Ave, and West Bypass    City: Springfield

All the expected adult products and features. No surprises and no disappointments.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 6:16 pm

Area: Stony Plain Road, 118 Avenue, 97 Street, etc.    City: Edmonton, AB

They seem to accumulate in the "bad parts of town". Like, parts of town where no one is shocked that a stabbing happened. Usually along with payday loan outlets, cheque cashers, pawn shops, rent to own stores, donut shops, etc.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 9:18 pm

Area: Pretty much everywhere    City: Atlanta

There is a pretty equal scattering of sex shops in just about every part of town, good and bad. They run the gamut just like any other type of store.

Saturday 07th of March 2009 9:36 pm

Area: City Center    City: Auckland, New Zealand

"K Road" is our local area for adult shops and strip bars, Its really close to the City center!!

Saturday 07th of March 2009 9:38 pm

Area: Everywhere!    City: Albuquerque

We have our sex stores scattered liberally around the city, though it seems like most of them are on Central Avenue. That"s probably mainly because Central"s the main drag of our city. We have a TON of porn stores, though, and we"ve got at least 3 women-owned shops that try to be less creepy than the larger porn stores, with a friendlier, boutique environment. Sex-positive southwest ftw.

New Mexico
Sunday 08th of March 2009 1:28 am

Area: Everywhere with limits    City: NYC

When the city started cleaning up Times Square they started putting all sorts of limitations on where sex shops could be; they had to be a certain number of feet from the next one, from a school, or from residential homes. Many of the shops were grandfathered in, that"s why sometimes you"ll find them in the weirdest locations in the city.

New York
Sunday 08th of March 2009 4:38 am

Area: Scattered    City: Toledo

As far as I"ve noticed, the "adult" businesses seem to be scattered randomly about town. The only small grouping I know of is out near the airport, where there is a "bookstore" (probably a "magazine-and-video store", really) and a "massage parlor" in close proximity (for the needs of lonely traveling businessmen, no doubt).

Sunday 08th of March 2009 7:43 am

Area: In all major areas of the city and the suburbs    City: Vasteras, Sweden

Despite the image of Sweden as a very sexy open country, the sex shops are far and few between. I live in the sixth largest city and there"s only one. Unless you count the government run drug stores (Apotek) who consider marital aids a part of medication and well-being. Socialized healthcare and socialized love-making! Guess we are very sexy and open about it after all.

Sunday 08th of March 2009 7:49 am

Area: Always beside a pizza place. Connection?    City: Canada

Rhode Island

Nestled right between some historical something-or-other building and a classy seafood/pasta place with the cities" best burgers upstairs . . . that"s right, Downtown Book and Video!

Sunday 08th of March 2009 9:25 am

Area: Route 130    City: Erial

I have to agree with my fellow NJ native above. Route 130 seem to have become a haven for sex shops, adult book stores and cheesy strip clubs. Oh...and small, privately owned car dealerships!

Sunday 08th of March 2009 5:23 pm

Area: The entire run of Cheshire Bridge Road    City: Atlanta

Sunday 08th of March 2009 7:25 pm

Area: 2121 Foothill Blvd (less classy town...Upland)    City: Claremont, CA

The best part about the sex shops / dance clubs near my town is the name...Toy Box (shudder) and Tropical Lei. The Tropical Lei has a marquee out front where they always put up bad sexual puns...like churches do, but you know, sexy. Every time I go by the cheeseball Tropical Lei, I want to go inside. But my friends who, on an ironic lark, went in said...it was just old, depressing, sad.

Sunday 08th of March 2009 7:44 pm

Area: 224 or Glenwood    City: Youngstown

there"s Ambiance: the Store for Lovers in the same plaza as Elmo"s Bras and Girdles (I kid you not) and a bridal store on 224 in Boardman Township, and Foster"s Theater on Glenwood Ave. in Youngstown. Foster"s was a legitimate theatre in the 50"s, then it was a movie theatre, now it only shows 2-bit pornos, and has a shop attached.

Sunday 08th of March 2009 7:50 pm

Area: 8 MILE ROAD!    City: Detroit, Michigan

8 mile, yes the same one as the movie, hosts a plethera of video, toy and book stores and many many gentleman"s clubs...

Sunday 08th of March 2009 9:23 pm

Area: Monument Blvd.    City: Pleasant Hill

I can"t remember what the name of the shop is, but it"s right next door to a Chinese restaurant called Peking Boy. That always brings the giggles when I drive by.

Sunday 08th of March 2009 9:27 pm

Area: Nonexistent.    City: Davis, CA

Davis won"t allow sex shops. Puritans!! How else do you expect college students to learn about sex and pornography???

Sunday 08th of March 2009 9:49 pm

Area: Pigalle    City: Paris, France

Oh yes indeed. In Paris, the Pigalle district (home of the Moulin Rouge and the Museum of Erotica) is throbbing with sex shops. There are also some more upmarket and women-friendly places dotted around the city, and a few more in the Jewish/gay district (I"m not sure which demographic they"re aiming at).

Monday 09th of March 2009 6:11 am

Area: South Orange Blossom Trail    City: Orlando

In this area, there are 2 stand alone sex shops and at least 5 strip clubs, you will also find female entrepreneurs strolling down the street looking for work. A few miles north you will find a gay resort that has clubs and shops as well. Protect yourselves!

Monday 09th of March 2009 6:30 am

Area: ummm.....EVERYWHERE    City: San Diego

San Diego seems to have an "F Street" bookstore in every area of the county. The Point Loma area does appear to be a concentration of "All nude" this and that. This is also the Navy and Marine areas at night/weekends. Strip clubs and "bookstores" seem to be ALLOVER though. Hillcrest is a gay area that has alot of "bookstores", so keep your soap well secured in this area ;-P

Monday 09th of March 2009 7:24 am

Area: Right off the interstate.    City: Wakefield

The only sex shop around (Sex shop, not Strip Club) is "The Lion"s Den" Between Abilene and... I think Clay Center. Its out in the middle of nowhere, and there are billboards on either side of it that say "Jesus heals, Pornography destroys". Well, it sure did destroy my napkin collection when I was a kid, but other than that, I turned out all right.

Monday 09th of March 2009 1:11 pm

Area: All over the place    City: Toronto, Canada

Thirty years ago what sex shop activity there was was mostly down Yonge St, but now they"re scattered all over town. From Lovecraft in the upscale Yorkville, to just down the street and around the corner from my less tony digs. Downtown, along Queen West, also has several that are more along the lines of "empowering, sex-positive boutiques" rather than the skeezier porn-focussed shops.

Monday 09th of March 2009 1:11 pm

Area: Every 5 feet.    City: Portland, OR.

You can"t get a beer from your own fridge without tripping over half a dozen stripclub/adult novelty outlet stores. Some towns have the "the seedy part of town", Portland IS the seedy part of town. Also, I picked florida because it looks like a willy.

Monday 09th of March 2009 3:35 pm

Area: Lehigh Street off I 78    City: Allentown

There are 5 scattered around Allentown that I can think of. Two blocks away from my house is a run down purple strip club (it used to be a Ponderosa restaurant) and a couple blocks further down the street is a sex shop surrounded by fencing so no one can see your car in the parking lot.The area is a mix of residential,industrial and commercial, everything from Mack Trucks to supermarkets

Monday 09th of March 2009 10:28 pm

Area: Main Drag     City: Foresthill

Area: on Touhy Av near Elmhurst Rd    City: Chicago/O"Hare

Walking distance from a trailer park across the street and the Chicago Police K9 training facility. Backs up against the NW corner of O"Hare airport. Love to look at the makes of cars in the lot like Mercedes, BMWs, Jags, Cadillacs. Gives an idea of the types that frequent the place! Oh, and there"s parking in the rear! :)

Tuesday 10th of March 2009 6:34 am

Area: Mt Read Boulevard    City: Greece

There are 3 sex shops one being a "juicebar" strip club with sex shop attached in a 2 mile stretch of the Mount Read Blvd here in Rochester. These are aLl in non seedy locations some steps from schools, McDonald"s, City offices. They must be crucial to society! 8) Also more amazing is that seemingly every woman we know has hosted a sex toy party in their home.

Area: strip mall off of I-66 near the Olympus Gym    City: Manassas

MVC (Manassas Video Club) is located in a strip mall just off of the interstate 66 and 234 business. they actually used to have several stores in the area, this one is the closest to where I live. I know that one of the other MVCs in Centerville just closed a few months ago - I guess the shitty economy has spilled over into how much porn is bought by consumers.

Area: The outskirts of town.    City: Quincy

This is a small(ish) mid-western, Christian town, so sex shops and strip clubs are frowned upon. Our one sex shop is just at the city limit, next door to a soybean factory and the nearest strip club is in Payson, about fifteen miles away.

Saturday 14th of March 2009 4:57 pm

Area: Near Airport; Capital Blvd. Industrial area, Capital Blvd. shopping area    City: Raleigh

The one or two places in the shpping areas seem to be a bit more upscale. I think there might be one in South Raleigh, too, in an industrial area. Might be closed though, I don"t know.

Monday 16th of March 2009 7:42 am

Area: pretty much everywhere    City: toronto

While by far not the only one in town, this place is woman-owned, queer and everyone else friendly and on the bike path/bus accessible. In a strip mall with an external drop off box for rentals when they"re closed. It"s just so dang *friendly*.

Area: The South Side on Market St.    City: Youngstown

There is a porn store on the south side of Youngstown on Market St. I got kicked out once for trying to taste the lube. But I"d have to say other than that, it"s an anything goes kind of place, the hookers aren"t too far up the street either, if you catch my drift... It"s a gross place.

Area: Belmont & Clark area    City: Chicago

Well-known for its alternative culture vibe, the area centered at the intersection is home to many sex and fetish type shops. It helps that it is adjacent to Boystown, the heart of GLBTQ Chicago. Overall, it *is* actually a pretty sexy part of town.
