Maybe you’re thinking “I’ll just go in, pick out what I want, pay and leave, right?”. For a lot of people, it’s that easy. For others, however, it can be really intimidating. Whether you’re looking to add to your overflowing toy chest, or you’re a novice who is just starting to explore the world of toys, we can help you get the most out of your visit to Q Toys or any other high-quality adult shop.
Do Ask Questions. Q Toys is an “education based” sex toy store, meaning we are here to help you learn as much as we are here to sell you stuff. Mustering up the courage to ask questions about really personal things can be daunting. Keep in mind, however, that we’ve heard (almost) everything, and we really want to help you find the product that’s going to be just right for your next sexy adventure. We will never pry for information you don’t want to divulge. If you are really intimidated by these conversations, try coming by the store on a weekday afternoon instead of the weekend, when there will be less traffic in the shop.
Don’t Yuck Someone Else’s Yum. If that chastity cage or that giant butt plug aren’t your thing, that’s cool! Just don’t judge someone else for being into that. We want everyone to be able to explore any aspect of their sexuality that needs exploring, and want them to be able to do it free from shame and judgement. Imagine if you were looking for something really personal while someone was next to you snickering. Try to keep an open mind, or at least a closed mouth.
Do Listen. Listen to your partner(s), and listen to yourself. If your partner wants you to try something you’re not into at the moment, or you’re bummed out that your partner won’t try that “one thing”, just let that go for now. Maybe it’s not the right time, or maybe you’ll never get there. Either way, pressuring yourself or your loved one(s) into something that doesn’t feel right is only going to leave everyone feeling miserable, resentful, or even in pain.
Don’t Hit on the Staff. Yes, we work in a sex toy store and love to talk openly about sex and sexuality. That doesn’t mean we want to talk about our personal lives with people we don’t know. We just want to do our job like anyone else, and working in an environment that encourages sexual exploration does not make us fair game for unwanted advances.
Do Take Your Time. We are here to help you find the right product. If you need to touch every single floor model and feel every single lube, go right ahead! We want you walking out happy with your purchase, whether it’s $10 or $100. (Also see, “Do Ask Questions”)
Don’t Cross Boundaries. No, we don’t have a room where you can try out the toys before buying them, It’s none of your business which, if any, of the toys we’ve tried, and we would rather you didn’t involve us in your role play without our consent. You get the idea.
Do Have Fun. That’s what it’s all about, right?
