Just a Pic

Romantix used to go by the name of Adult Emporium. After some consideration, they decided gay porn and S&M paraphenalia screamed romance and not adult book store.
Hence, the name change.

These two businesses have been next to each other for as long as I can remember.
Tools for every occasion!

On a comment a few days back Al told me I needed to get a picture and I told him if I was in the area I would.
Lo and behold, I had to buy windows and paint on the south side of Des Moines.

    2. When it lived in Libertyville, IL, a rather upscale place. (I never lived there...ha.) I think it was run out of town. Maybe.

    3. Some towns just think they are too good for sex toys.

  2. I'm guessing there's a smooth flow of patrons from one to the other store.

  3. Romantix is actually a better name for an edible lubricating gel. I'm going to suggest it at the next stockholders' meeting.

    1. Gorilla Bananas, That is a pretty good name, however taking that name may have legal ramifications.

  4. We have 2 in my town. One is called Pandora's Box and the other is Priscilla McCalls. The 2nd one often has a jingle on the radio that is quite catchy.

    1. Adam, I have never heard a porn shop advertise on the radio. Yes, I live in a cave.

  5. I thank you for posting this. I hear the City Fathers have plans to open up an adult store for ladies who...uh...wear comfortable shoes. Catering to the Velcro Vixens, it will be called "Pat's Snap-On Tools."
