Looking for other things to do at home right now? Here are some more ideas.

Melbourne's best sex shops

Passionfruit: The Sensuality Shop
  • Shopping
  • Richmond

A feminist-owned sex shop means this store is less about raunch and blow-up dolls, and more about buying toys that are fun to use (together or alone). There's the standard array of high-tech, German and Scandinavian-made vibrators, along with books, lingerie, lubes, and oils. Passionfruit is as much about sensuality as it is about sexuality. The perfect place for newbies and couples, the focus here is on being a more attentive and devoted lover.

Lucrezia & De Sade
  • Things to do
  • Fitzroy

Tucked up the far end of Brunswick Street lies Lucrezia & De Sade, a store stockpiled with fetish clothing, accessories and toys to satisfy any pursuit and pleasure. The store boasts one of the most diverse collections of quality fetish and BDSM products in the country, much of which is designed and manufactured on the premises. An incredibly thorough product range and the knowledge of the staff is what distinguishes this little shop from the rest.

Shop online here. Lucrezia & De Sadeus currently offering free shipping on any order.

  • Things to do
  • Ormond

When you name your label after arguably the most infamous sexual libertine of all time, you’ve got a lot to live up to. Thankfully, Marquis de Sade does its namesake justice, just replace tales of erotic perversion and freedom (as the original De Sade penned) with award-winning corsets, PVC and bondage gear and accessories. At Marquis de Sade they know the importance of good quality materials and design when it comes to fetish wear, as label creator Mary Delon has a background in haute couture and tailoring.

It's highly likely you've seen the splashy bricks and mortar Club X stores around the country. But did you know you can order from their massive range online? This sexy stalwart has toys, fetishwear, bondage and other accoutrements for all: him, her, them, couples and beyond. Club X's size and scope also means there are incredible discounts and sales to make the most of too.

The most specific sex toy purveyor on this list, Fleshlight sells... well, fleshlights mainly. Find a diverse range in their online store with the tubular units coming in different colours, textures and purposes. There are realistic casts of famous models (with an impressive gender parity) to browse or a "create your own" section if you're a customising customer.

Aside from having killer SEO and one of the cutest little horny devil-on-the-internet logos Adultshop.com also consider themselves to be the passion and pleasure experts. Head here for exclusive kits and bundles, a section devoted to romance and seduction and LGBTQIA-friendly shopping. They also offer free shipping on orders over a modest $59.

JOUJOU takes the cake when it comes to tentative buyers. Their site has an excellent beginner's section that aggregates content and products for those just starting out on their sex toy journey. You can also ramp up the heat if you're more of an expert with guides for more confident customers after something new and a huge range of products for all tastes and positions on the gender spectrum.
