35 Mail-order houses

Most of these places require you to state that you're 21 or over when
ordering. (This list in particular could use all the expansion it can
get, since I know little about toy stores outside the SF Bay
Area. Send me your favorite local shops' addresses, and I'll put 'em
in here!) The best stores list I know of is
{http://login.dknet.dk/~pg/fetish/FAQ/} the alt.sex.fetish.fashion FAQ
list. Yes, it's mostly for kinky clothes, but there is a LOT of SM
material in there, too. As I mentioned above, QSM does mail-order of
books and magazines. Good Vibrations, 1210 Valencia, San Francisco, CA
94110, (800) BUY-VIBE (289-9423), goodvibe@well.sf.ca.us (yes, they
are on the Internet!). An excellent non-sleazy erotica store,
woman-owned, with lots of good books and magazines about sex and a
nice selection of basic sex toys. If you want to order any of the
books in this FAQ, you could likely get them from here--and if not
from here, from QSM. Not an SM store, but a good one nonetheless. Send
them $5 for first-class-mailed catalogs of their books and toys. Adam
and Gillian's Sensual Whips and Toys - Serving the SM community since
1987 Adam and Gillian produce quality whips at reasonable prices. For
a catalog send $3.00 to AGSWT c/o The Utopian Network; PO Box 1146; NY

For those who enjoy making their own toys, I'm told that a great source
for leather hides and tools is the M. Siegel Company, Inc., 120 Pond

fax(508)881-5203, orders only (800)932-8956. They keep odd hours and
have certain minimum-order sizes, so call first. If you're in San
Francisco, stop by Stormy Leather, 1158 Howard St., San Francisco, CA
94103, (415) 626-1672. A woman-owned store with an excellent selection
of sexy leather and latex clothes, good basic bondage gear, and a
wonderful magazine and book section. They cater to both men and women,
so they'll have toys to fit you; they also do custom orders. They have
unfortunately stopped doing mail orders. Another great San Francisco
store is Romantasy, which has a {http://www.romantasy.com} web page;
