    i have gone to shops many times. The employees are good. You have to think about everyone who goes in there is looking for something. They do not all have booths. Now booths are a whole different topic of its own. Is that what you are going for?

    The employees have always been fun and very open with me. The first time I went to one, I asked about lubes, and she said "is it for vaginal or anal sex". I told her anal, and she ran over and got a sample of anal lube, and said, here's feel it! She squirted it on my hand so I could feel how it was thicker than normal lube. I felt like they are capable of fielding even the most embarrassing of questions. That should being their main job qualification.

    prices at ever sex shop I've been to have been re-hee-heeeeally high. I shop at an online store now because it has reviews, better prices, and a huge selection. But you can't feel things when you shop online.

    Depends on if you're going to a store like ConRev http://www.conrev.com/ or A Touch of Romance http://www.atouchofromance.com/ or a porn store.

    ConRev and Touch of Romance stores have more cross appeal to women and tend to be a bit more polished. The staff at these stores know what they're selling and tend to treat you like an adult and help you find what you need for whatever activities you wish to engage in with your lover / trick. They tend to emphasize safer sex practices.

    Porn stores on the other hand tend to be more video/magazine oriented and most have video rooms that range from individual, open stalls to watch videos for cash or rooms with locking doors, gloryholes, benches, and videos to view for cash.

    Some have both.

    Being a connoisseur of both, each has their advantages and disadvantages.

    Either way, you're over 18 and what you're doing is not illegal despite what the crazy evangelicals say.

    Go in with an open mind and try something new! Life's too short not to!

    I work in a adult store (they prefer adult store to sex store because we don't sell sex but we sell adult products lol) and you'll find the people that work there who want to be there are really friendly, open minded and knowledgeable in all aspects of sex and products. Just think of the shop as a newsagent, drug store (lesser degree), video store, clothing store, novelty store and toy store under one roof.

    I'd walk around the store first then talk to the staff if you have something specific in mind or don't know what something is for. Nothing will and can embarrass them so if you want to know something just ask. For example the one that I work in, we are all gay and the female I work with used to be a female only dominatrix that does pony play and fisting and most customers come to me because they're comfortable with me talking about their cross dressing, straight male anal play, cock pumps and erectile dysfunction.
    Not all stores have booths (ask at the counter) and almost all will have a notice board to pin a personals ad on there to meet up with guys if that's what you're after.

    You can also shop in the privacy of your own home. If you really want to go into a real store, you can also do some window shopping online to research what you might want to buy and then buy it in the store; although half the fun is looking around inside the physical store.
