Mapping Seattle's Best Sex Shops For Your Fifty Shades Fix

View as Map

How you celebrate the Fifty Shades of Grey lifestyle really comes down to a price point issue. If you've got millions, you can buy Christian Grey's Escala condo (almost). If you've got a couple grand to spare, you can have a Fifty Shades Weekend in a Seattle hotel. But what about the rest of us who can't afford helicopter rides and million-dollar penthouses with secret sex lairs? How do we unleash our BDSM interests or at least find out what kind of whip we're supposed to be using? That's where Seattle's many sex shops come in. To no one's surprise, the city is chocked full of shops and stores which are in turn chocked full of toys, leathers and any other paraphernalia you might need to reenact your favorite scene from the series.

For 28 years, Castle Megastore has been providing access to romantic aids and sex toys across the country.

Open since 1982, they're all about providing leather, fetish, club & fashion wear in a healthy and supportive environment. If the bondage business in Fifty Shades piqued your interest, these guys know a thing or two about that.

5. Fantasy Unlimited

They also have stores in Everett and Marysville if you're super-shy and don't want to run the risk of being seen. Large selection of toys, lingerie and more.

Doghouse Leathers was established in 2006 and moved into their current store in 2010. They're focused on leatherwear for Seattle Men's Leather, Kink and Bear Communities and they offer "the northwest's largest selection of Nasty Pig products." Perfect!

9. Center for Sex Positive Culture

Copy Link
1602 15th Avenue West
Seattle, WA 98119

While not a sex toy shop or lingerie store, we figured this place should be on any list for awakened sexualities. Founded in 1999, the Center for Sex Positive Culture is a nonprofit, membership-based community center established to create an environment that was accommodating to sex positive communities and transformative in all areas of human sexuality, and has succeeded in creating that environment.
