Last week my friend who is currently working in Australia for 1 year, asked me can he find the classy sex shops in Melbourne. From my experience, if modern adult shops with a touch of class if what you are looking for, then stay away from the shops in the suburbs, usually near milk bars or fish and chip shops.
These shops are usually quite old and seedy, with bad lighting and grumpy shop attendants. Although they do stock the latest high-tech vibrators and sex toys, bringing your classy girlfriend in this type of adult shop in Melbourne might turn her off…
I would also recommend to avoid the shops for adults near train stations in the city, usually they are quite low quality as well. I don’t know why so many shop owners don’t put any extra effort in making their customer feel nice while they are shopping for adult toys and vibrators?
It’s quite an intimate thing to do, and everyone should feel comfortable while doing so.
So if you are looking for the best sex shops in Melbourne, I would suggest to walk around the hip and popular areas of the city.
Fitzroy is a hip artist area full of cool independent designer shops, coffee shops, and more. There are adult stores in this area that are quite hip and cool, with funky decorations and exposed brick walls, and tons of great adult toys to choose from.
I also had a good experience finding nice adult stores in Brunswick.
And last but not least, Richmond has one of the most upmarket sexy shops, if you are looking for gold plated vibrators and super fancy lingerie costing up to $1000 a piece. But hey, apparently, the more you pay, the sexier you feel!
