Best Leather Stores - 2011
Mr. S and Mrs. S
Butt plugs? Cock rings? Stun guns? Anything else? Your imagination is unlikely to reach its limits within the walls of Mr. S — or Mrs. S, its next-door, female-oriented twin. Remarkably, the SOMA leather store manages to cater to old campaigners and novices in the arts of bondage and fetish play. Whether you're after a $7.95 roll of PVC tape (always helpful for securing ankles together) or a $999.95 neoprene straitjacket, there's nothing you won't find here, and there's no need to feel intimidated if you want to start small. The staff is welcoming, so don't hesitate to ask questions if you're overwhelmed by the vast array of leather-clad mannequins and crevice jellies. Another benefit: Unlike some sex-product stores, Mr. S doesn't tend to get crowded, so you won't have to worry about jostling for space with young hipster couples searching for lambskin condoms.
