A sex shop is a shop that sells products such as sex toys, pornography, erotic lingerie, erotic books and safer sex products such as condoms and dental dams. The terms "Adult Video Store" and "Adult Book Store" are commonly used to refer to sex shops that sell or rent pornographic videos, books, and magazines.
Most sex shops also sell a range of fetish, BDSM and bondage related products. Unless the shop specialises in these items, they will be generally of a poor quality and very expensive. If you want to buy your first fetish outfit or item of bondage equipment, then you would be advisd to go to a specialist shop or even better visit a fetish market.
