Most sex shops fool gullible customers by selling shoddy products at exorbitant rates and usually get away with poor customer service. But now with the arrival of online sex shops that offer a more discreet shopping experience, you don’t have to put up with bad services. Also you have a number of options to choose from. However, locating a good sex shop can take a certain amount of time and effort. It’s not too difficult but you need to know how to go about it.

Here is a great website where you can purchase fleshlights, anal luricant, dildos, and other sex toys.

Word-of-mouth is probably the best technique for locating a good sex shop. If you know somebody who has shopped there, you can get some first-hand information. Ask around for shops that offer quality products. While shopping online, have a look at the customer reviews but avoid sites that put up only glowing reviews and don’t let you leave one. If you have a great experience there, spread the word so that others like you can get the benefits. It is important to treat sex shops like any other business. Everyone knows that satisfied customers result into more sales and a more professional service-oriented business.

Testing the customer service of the shop is a good idea too. Friendly and knowledgeable sales people help you find what you need without pushing you to buy expensive things that you don’t really need. Ask them to recommend a range of products at different price levels. Everyone hunts for a bargain, but cheap products are sometimes low on quality too. But if a store sells only outrageously expensive products, you are probably being overcharged. If you are shopping online, look for a website that has a phone number to connect you to a live customer representative and that responds to email queries within 24 hours.

You can get an overall idea about the store by asking a few pertinent questions about their products and policies. A reputable store always has a fair return policy so read it carefully before making a purchase. You should only buy from a store that takes back defective merchandise. It is also important to check the packaging for signs of tampering when your product arrives.

You need to be extra cautious while shopping online. Ask questions about what happens if you get sex toys that were damaged in transit, the duration of the warranty, about whether the product comes with a guarantee of satisfaction or whether they take back defective products only. Their privacy policy too needs to be carefully examined; the kind of information solicited from customers and if the information or the mailing list is shared, traded or sold.

Most reputable online sex stores have links to similar sites so check them out when you are surfing online. You can learn a lot about a company by knowing who it links up with. Good sex stores where you shop personally have resource areas with free literature about sexual health and products.

There are different kinds of sex shops catering to different segments of society. For instance, there are co-op sex shops for workers, Christian sex shops, sex shops especially for feminists, and others where everyone is welcome. Some successful sex shops initially focused on a narrow segment but later expanded their targeted customer base. You need to look around a bit to find a sex shop that suits your requirements.

Here are some tips for a great sex shopping experience:

• Don’t patronize shops that do not post a return and privacy policy on their site

• Avoid stores that do not respond to email queries within 24 hours, leaving weekends, of course

• Don’t shop at stores that don’t have a toll-free number for customers

• Avoid sex stores that make tall claims about their products

• Look for security certificates on the website to make sure your transactions with the shop are safe and secured

There are so many options when you are shopping for sex, so be sure to weigh the options and keep the above guidelines in mind before buying anything.
