Adult World bills itself as a supermarket-style shopping experience for sexy products, with everything from fetishwear to toys and porn. It's not fancy, but it comprehensively does the job. There's the Oxford Street store in Darlinghurst (124 Oxford Street), as well as stores in Newtown, Bankstown and Beaconsfield.
Sex shops get a bad wrap, but the skeezy, back-alley stereotype is far from the norm in these sexually enlightened times. Greater sex positivity has helped society shed many uptight taboos and lifted the veil on the erotic hijinks many of us choose to dabble in. As the saying goes, a workman (or woman, or non-binary person) is only as good as their tools, so it's worth investing in some quality hardware if you care about how you get your kicks.
We've hunted down Sydney's finest purveyors of bedroom playthings, from cheeky toys to hardcore fetish gear – and if you cannot visit in person, they all deliver, discreetly and direct to your door.
