The big, wide world of sex-related products can be daunting. For someone just beginning to explore, the sheer variety can be a bit intense, not to mention the fact that 90% of sensual materials are not really made with female customers in mind. Then, there's the added layer of style; for someone attracted to tastefully outfitted civilians, the visual trappings of mainstream pornography are unequivocally hard on the eyes.

It's with that in mind that we've assembled this list of suggestions as to where you might go to scratch your various itches, in style.
