I’ll never forget the first time I set foot in a sex shop. I was a university student and I was looking for a special something to spice up my sex life with my then boyfriend. There was a sex shop very close to campus that everyone knew about, but hardly anyone had actually been to.
I often walked past it on my way to the city centre. The pointless and provocative lingerie on the mannequins in the window display would always catch my attention. I wondered what more there might be behind closed doors. There was absolutely no indication from the street.
One day, my curiosity got the better of me and I convinced my best friend to go there with me. We were giggly and nervous as we approached the big metallic door. Once we pushed it open, we discovered a whole new world.
