Shop Local: The Todd

Couples are spicing up more than the eggnog this holiday season, trading the mistletoe for remote-control vibrators. And when it comes to finding the perfect stocking stuffer, there’s no better place than The Todd.

Open since 1969, this veritable warehouse of sex toys and porn flicks near USF-Tampa is not only the biggest sex store in Tampa, it’s also the least skeevy. A well-lit parking lot and helpful staff make shopping for that perfect lube a less-than-dirty, and in fact pleasant, experience. Besides your standard fare of edible underwear and fuzzy handcuffs, The Todd has a vast display of dildos and vibrators (buy an assortment in holiday-brite colors like the ones shown above), blow-up dolls that run the gamut of tastelessness and wall after wall of adult DVDs. For thrifty spenders, there’s even a clearance section.

Gift This: Find positions you didn’t even know existed with The Todd’s selection of sex swings, $129-$189.

13417 N. Nebraska Ave., Tampa, 813-221-0099
