What should you pay attention to when choosing a sex shop in Amsterdam?

If you want to visit a sex shop in Amsterdam, it is important to take a number of things into account. The most important thing is safety. You do not want products without a quality mark, the origin of which is unknown and of which it is unclear what materials have been used. In addition, there are practical matters such as accessibility and location.

When choosing a sex shop in Amsterdam, keep the following things in mind:

1. Collection

Every person and every body is different. We are all stimulated by different stimuli and enjoy different things. Which sex toys are the most pleasant is therefore very personal. Partly for this reason, it is important that a sex shop has an extensive range.

In our adult store you can choose from a generous collection of products, consisting of different materials, textures, functions, vibrations and scents. All our products are carefully selected and there is something for everyone. Our expert employees can tell you everything about the products.

2. Quality

In a sex shop you buy items that you wear, touch and put in your body. It is therefore very important that the products are safe and extensively tested. Make sure you buy products of which the quality is guaranteed and of which the origin is clear (something that is not always the case on the internet).

In addition, it is important that the articles fit how you want to use them. For example, pay attention to the water resistance.

At Newside Eroticshop we only sell high quality products. Our employees can tell you everything about the specific properties of the various products.

3. Knowledge

A good sex shop has expert employees who patiently listen to you, think along with you and are open to all your questions. By answering these questions clearly and exploring the store with you, we guarantee that you will come home with the products that best suit you (and/or your partner).

4. Low threshold

The last thing you want is to buy something quickly because you don't feel comfortable. Before you know it you will walk out of ignorance with a product that does not suit you at all!

You can look around in a good sex shop. The staff puts you at ease with an open attitude, so you don't feel embarrassed to ask the questions you have. With us, unlike other sex shops in the center of Amsterdam, you will not find hordes of tourists in front of the window and no question is weird or embarrassing.

Types of sex shops in Amsterdam

You will probably not find as many sex shops anywhere in the world as in the center of Amsterdam. What is the difference between these shops and what separates a good sex shop from a bad one?

Which sex shop is best depends largely on your personal wishes and preferences. For example, there are sex shops that focus on a specific target group.

Sex shops in Amsterdam can be divided into the following categories:

Gay sex shop Amsterdam

In Amsterdam you will find various sex shops that focus specifically on the gay scene. In the best gay sex shops in Amsterdam you can find gay sex toys, exciting (leather) outfits, lubricants, condoms and many other items.

At Newside Eroticshop we do not focus on a specific target group. Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender, sexual orientation and preferences. You will find many products with us that you can also find in special gay sex shops. How about these man & man toys for example?

Fetish shops Amsterdam

Bdsm store Amsterdam

Whether you are submissive or dominant, beginner or experienced, in a good bdsm sex shop you will find all the clothing, sex toys and tools you are looking for. Because bdsm sex shops focus specifically on this niche, they usually offer a very extensive range of masks , bondage tools , whips , nipple clamps and teasers . The atmosphere in these shops is often a bit darker and rougher.
