Eve's Garden

Billed as the first sex shop for women, by women, Eve's Garden strives to steer female sexuality away from penis-shaped straws and subpar vibrators. The store's founder, women's-rights activist Dell Williams, designed it to be high-class, welcoming and anything but scary. The shop holds workshops and events on- and off-site, with topics ranging from couples' communication to masturbation.

The Pleasure Chest

This store covers all the basics for both masturbators and couples. The Pleasure Chest's inventory is mostly high-quality (even some "luxury" sex toys for those with padded wallets), though you can also stop in for cheap novelty gifts, like boyfriend training cards and candy bras. Plus, the store has a busy calendar of classes and workshops designed to offer new techniques and product ideas for love lives that have turned mundane.

Lenox Hill

Coco de Mer

The first NYC outpost of this British boutique, founded by Justine and Samantha Roddick, puts the ass in class. Think: racy lingerie by Stella McCartney, sustainable-wood paddles, comics (Anal Intruders from Uranus!) and dog masks. Dressing rooms share a confessional-style partition, and one is equipped with a digital camera (use your imagination).

Rainbow Station

Rainbow Station

Chelsea has no shortage of adult stores catering to the LGBT crowd and, as the store’s name suggests, Rainbow Station serves its core demographic with pride. Its clothing racks are packed with male underwear in addition to more traditional-female centric lingerie, and there’s an added emphasis on toys for delivering him pleasure. Before you leave, make sure to check out the selection of lubes and condoms. 203 8th Ave (212-206-7259, rainbowstation.nyc)

Shag Brooklyn

Samantha Bard and Ashley Montgomery-Pulido’s shop boasts a top-rate selection of toys, including wood and marble dildos, plus hats, jewelry, home goods, fine art and even vagina doorknobs, cast from real vajayjays.

Williamsburg

Empire Exotics

Though it’s packing in lingerie, this sexpot’s bestseller is the shoes. Here, you can find six-inch stilettos in about every corner of the store. The clientele for this little Koreatown sex shop is mainly dancers from nearby Rick’s Cabaret, so it has plenty to offer in stretch material with crystals. Try some on.

Romantic Depot

This store is three times bigger then other shops, including the Pleasure Chest, and it’s the largest sex toy store in NYC—and the only one in the Bronx. Its No. 1 seller is the Jackrabbit, but you’ll find 10 different variations of it within the shop’s massive inventory of items of the flesh.

NYC Red Room

The red room is by far the best part of this sex shop (duh). In it, you can find whips, chains, harnesses and anything else you’ll need to show your partner who’s on top. This shop also boasts an array of different dildos, making it worth the trip to Coney Island.

I’ve been to most of stores listed in above. Most of them are pink ladies store. But there are so many LGBT friendly sex stores in NYC. Specially, I love to shop at Rainbow Station Chelsea. They have huge collection gay friendly products such as men's clothing, sex toys, lubrication, BDSM accessories and more. Also they have decent collection of lingerie and ladies shoes. “Boys!! You can try them”.visit: rainbowstation.nyc
