When the lights go down and nighttime takes over, you may be compelled to have a nice romantic dinner at a local restaurant or you might want to take in a raucous concert with all your friends. Or you may prefer to stay at home and explore the realms of sensuality with yourself, your partner, or even more people. There are several stores in New Orleans where you can shop for the best, bawdiest, and nastiest adult toys, lingerie, and more.
It can be easy to overlook a store's hours when you're in a rush to get it on, so make sure that these adult stores are still open or visit one of the 24-hour locations when you're ready for love.
