WCIF sex toy stores / sex shops / adult toys?

Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious

Moderator: Charlie Phillips

Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

When I park at Raohe night market at Bade just east of Jilong Rd., the best parking spot is often near a 10$ store and a packing materials / hardware store just across Bade from the western end of the night market (where the bronze owls are, not where the temple is). There are signs for such a shop right by the packing materials store, but I've never actually seen the shop (it's not a streetfront shop), so I imagine it's tucked inside the building somewhere. I don't remember if the sign was in Chinese but you might need to be able to read Chinese in order to follow the directions on the sign to find the shop.

I'd try Shiny Imports ... I hear that's how Big Fluffy Matthew made mad cash. But I could be wrong.

In Chinese, sex shops are called 情趣用品店 qingqu yongpin dian.

There's one on the corner of Minsheng West Road and ?? Street (midway between Chengde Road and Ningxia Road where the night market is). There's a police station on the other corner. Nearest MRT: Shuanglian. I did go in there once and bought a supply of cheap, government-approved condoms.

There's another shop nearby that specialises in bondage gear. It's on the west side of Chengde Road just south of the Minsheng West Road junction. You can spot it easily at night as it has a kind of orange fake flame thingy over the doorway.

And there are plenty more around. A lot of vibrators and the like are made either in Taiwan or in Taiwanese-owned factories in China.

No, no, read the fine print. That'd be a Taiwan vibe manufactured in China. What could go wrong? :lol:

Go to The Taipei City Hall Station MRT, take exit 3 and walk up Zhongxaio road away from the downtown area. You will pass a firestation, then on your side of the road there are a lot of shops. There is a sex shop right in there, not too far down. Not sure about the actual quality, or seediness of the place, but see it when I'm out for walks. They have outfits and toys right in the window, so your... friend... should be able to find what they are looking for there.
