Adult online sex groups
In an attempt to answer this question, we’ve scooped together a selection of reputable sex shops in Cape Town, from those focusing on making hetero- or homosexual playtime raunchier to those that are all about deepening love through third-party technology.
As shoppers generally want privacy and anonymity, many adult boutiques have gone online exclusively, so you’ll note there are a large number of e-options below; though, we have tried to pick out a few bricks-and-mortar boutiques for both the bolder among us and those who actually want to see and stroke what they’re purchasing.
