Either way, happy browsing, happy buying and oh-so-happy bed, bath or back-of-the-car time.
Désir Intimate Collection Founded in 2012, Désir Intimate Collection takes pride in providing South Africans access to some of the most luxurious and sophisticated adult toys from across the globe.
From lipstick-shaped vibrators and waterproof mini wands to polka dot chemises to lacy thigh-high stockings, the store stocks everything required to tickle her pink.
Plus, it also has a small range of sexual health basics, like a sex toy cleaner spray, and a limited selection of luxurious bed linen.
Should you buy a knickknack online, delivery is very discreet – there’s no labelling on the packages – and every order arrives with a complimentary pack of condoms and a lubricant.
Hot House Adult Store Though first and foremost a leisure and passion palace, this European-style steam bath venue, which sits in the bosom of Cape Town’s gay village in De Waterkant, is also home to a racy adult store that stocks dildos of any size, shape and colour; metal, leather, rubber and studded cock rings; sensual lubricants; Rush poppers, uber hot and kinky sex toys; and underwear.
In an attempt to answer this question, we’ve scooped together a selection of reputable sex shops in Cape Town, from those focusing on making hetero- or homosexual playtime raunchier to those that are all about deepening love through third-party technology.
As shoppers generally want privacy and anonymity, many adult boutiques have gone online exclusively, so you’ll note there are a large number of e-options below; though, we have tried to pick out a few bricks-and-mortar boutiques for both the bolder among us and those who actually want to see and stroke what they’re purchasing.
What’s more, Désir too offers customers the opportunity to view and purchase items directly from their head office situated in Camps Bay while enjoying a glass of bubbly (or two).
NOTE: Walk-ins are on an appointment basis only and must be arranged via phone or email.
Not to mention, sometimes we’re in the mood for some solo satisfaction and we may want some assistance from an external source.
Enter the world of sex toys, pleasure products, erotica, lingerie, lubes and lotions.
Not to mention, it also sells a range of bondage toys (think handcuffs, latex whips, blindfolds, love swings and bed restraint kits), and, somewhat on the other end of the spectrum, a few products related to improving sexual health.
