North of the Charles River and in need of a paddling? Hubba Hubba has got the wrist action you're looking for. The shop is best known for its independently designed S&M gear and fetishwear (with more than a pinch of punk). Shop owner Suzan Phelps has been helping locals spice up their wardrobes for over 25 years.
If you really can’t get enough of oral pleasure the old-fashioned way, Sweet-N-Nasty offers you another outlet: cake. Operating in New England since 1976, this erotic bakery has a variety of seductive sweets available. Best sellers include the penis pop, bite-sized tit pop and the crème filled Tall Texan. Birthdays will never be the same again.
