It's playtime — a guide to adult toy shops in Austin

Just because action figures and Barbie dolls are now a distant memory doesn’t mean college students can’t have a few toys lying around. Austin has many spots where you can get your hands on toys to stimulate grown-up fun. Whether it’s doubling the pleasure with a partner or a solo performance, pledge to have a little more fun this February. 

Forbidden Fruit

Adam and Eve took a bite, and now it’s your turn.  But the best times don’t always have to come in pairs. Here are manager Lynn Raridon’s favorite ways to spice up your Valentine’s Day, with or without a partner. Don’t forget your student ID to get 10 percent off of your entire purchase.


Sliver Bullet — $14

The Silver Bullet is great for clitoral stimulation only, so do not insert. The Silver Bullet also has a remote control attached to it to intensify the vibrations as necessary.


Mini Mystic Wand — $80


The Mini Mystic Wand is multi-functional with a flexible shaft. It has a USB charger, so it can be charged on a computer, and the wand is made of silicone, so it can be sterilized.


We Vibe 3 — $175

The We Vibe 3 offers clitoral and G spot stimulation, and can be used solo or in a pair. The vibrator has up to two hours of battery life, is waterproof and comes with a wireless remote.


 Step into Dreamers and take a break from reality with a wide range of wild toys and novelties. Here are a few of manager James Fontinos’ top picks for Valentine’s Day and beyond. 


Butterfly Kiss — $19.99

The Butterfly Kiss is similar to the popular Rabbit, a vibrator and clitoral bullet that stimulates the G spot and vaginal play for beginners. The Butterfly Kiss massages the clitoris with a tantalizing “kiss” antenna, and its variety of colors and functions makes it less intimidating as a first toy.


Rabbit vibrator — $24.95 to $279.95

Rabbit vibrators range in color, size and texture — the more expensive Rabbits are made of silicone and have a pulsating motor. The dual pulsating motors simultaneously stimulate with a gyrating tip and a powerful shaft.


Squeel — $79.99

The Squeel is fairly new, but it’s innovative. It is discreetly designed to resemble Bubble Tape Mega Roll bubble gum, with 10 silicone “tongues” that pulsate on a rotating wheel with three speeds.
