There are tried-and-true methods for using the whips, chains and playthings you may have bought at one of Taboo’s three area locations. Which is why the adult novelty store, known for its array of adult toys, now is host to Sunday brunches that answer questions about fetishes, fun and how to pick the best vibrating accessory. “We want to be more a part of the community because sex is a great thing,” owner Alison Barber says. The store also is putting a greater emphasis on bedroom gadgets that meet the needs of women and couples, she says. Priscilla McCall’s has fun toys too, but mainly focuses on lingerie. Adam & Eve is known for its emphasis on couples and accouterments.
