Top 5 Best Adult Stores in Washington DC

By Jacob B. / July 06, 2022

The Capitol is a great place to buy your sex toys. The Bedbible-team has ranked the best adult stores in dc. So if you’re looking for a place to buy toys that improves your sexual life. Then you’re ended up on the right page.

We know from experience that it can be difficult to pick the place to buy sex toys, and that’s of course totally normal, since how should you know where to buy from. This is why our visitors have asked us to make this field research so you basically just should keep you updated here.

We’ll keep this review updated so if any new adult store starts we’ll insert it here.

Which adult store to pick in Washington DC?

You’ll find our conclusion further down in this article. Number 1 is our top pick, number 2 second best, etc. In general, there’s not a big difference between numbers 1 and 5, so as long as you buy from one of them you’ll get a good experience.

How did you make a top 5 list?

We visited all shops; talked with the employees (tried to challenge them on their knowledge), bought from them to understand their buying terms, and looked at prices and the store’s design. On behalf of our expert’s experience, we’ve ranked the shops, and only 5 were picked for the top 5 list.

Why you should buy online instead

It’s typically cheaper and you get the products after 1-2 days (due to the fast delivery) in the US. Further sex toys are nice to shop for when you’re together with your partner or just by yourself. Since it’s a private thing, and you typically don’t want to talk to others about it. If you like the majority prefer to shop online then we recommend one of the following shops:


1. Bite the Fruit

Bite the Fruit

At Connecticut Avenue in the center of Washington DC we find our top pick; “Bite The Fruit”.

It’s a small to medium-sized store which covers the whole sex toy area; BDSM, Couples Toys, Novelties, and Lingerie. The store also won a prize in 2019 as the best adult store in DC.

The store can be difficult to find since its facade and logo are between two other bigger stores (see the above picture of the store from the outside).

The Owner is called Russwin F. and he started the store in 2012. So as you can see it has some years of experience, but not as many as others.

A huge recommendation from Bedbible!

2. Hart’s Desires

Hart's Desires

Almost located in the same place as “Bite the fruit” just a bit more north. Hart’s Desires is a small-sized store that is not a good sex toy store, so it’s kind of a joker on this list.

But that’s because some of the other stores fulfill that 100%, so we felt for a store that was super good in one focus area.

And this adult store’s focus area is Lingerie and Sexy Shoes. Which is something we haven’t seen before; a store that focuses on sexy heels. In other words, this is basically where you dress up for your partner. The store is small, but it looks like the staff is able to find exactly what you need (so if they don’t have it in the store they’ll figure something out for you).

3. TrickBox


Here we have a fetish and kink specialized adult store. They have literally everything within this universe. So if you’re a beginner or experienced and are interested in this area, then we really suggest you visit this sex shop store in dc. As one of the few stores they have the premium BDSM brands; E-stim, Ballistic, Northbound Leather, and Barcode Berlin. The owner says: “We do only work together with brands that demonstrate absolute belief in their work”.

The store is a friendly and nice environment where you also have the opportunity to try the clothing. This is a big advantage (maybe the biggest) when we talk about online shopping vs a physical store.

The store is located in the eastern part of Washington DC to the big Rhode Island Avenue.

4. Capitol Video Sales

Capitol Video Sales

Capital Video Sales are located on the same avenue as our top pick. So we do of course think it would be fine for you to visit both of them. Then you also get a better understanding of what’s the difference between a number 1 and number 4 shop in our ranking list.

We talked with the owner/manager who says the following about the shop:

“Capital Video Sales is specialized in lingerie, DVD sales and rental both gay and straight, Adult toys and accessories, fetish and leather gear, lubricants and massage oils, novelties and party gifts, exotic shoes” – Angelo F.

5. Lotus Blooms

Lotus Blooms

The best shop in the southern part of Washington DC is Lotus Blooms.

It’s a super discreet design, so people from the outside would almost not guess what’s being sold inside. The shop is medium-sized and has a big selection of toys.

Some different products are Pegging kits, Shower dildos, and Sex toy kits.
