A Tasteful Girl's Guide To Sexy Time (NSFW)

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. Who are these grunting, simian hard bodies and what have they done with the babes? Must they really climax there, each time, like that?
It's enough to make some of you otherwise open-minded ladies stay as far away from it all as possible. Which is a shame, because you could be missing out on some potentially titillating experiences. What we generally refer to as "the sex industry" is far from monolithic, and there's something for everyone if you know where to look. 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.
