Richmond, don’t be coy. We know you love your bedroom games — witness the popularity of Taboo, a preferred destination for adult toys, lingerie and DVDs. While soft-core restraints like furry handcuffs have become more popular since “50 Shades of Grey” entered the public’s imagination, owner Alison Barber says, she also carries more adventurous items at the store’s three locations. “I would say in general Richmonders are probably kinkier than Richmond thinks they are,” Barber says. “I think people would be surprised to know how much of the fetishy type and more out-there and experimental items we sell.” Popular for bachelorette- and bachelor-party gags and lingerie is Priscilla McCall’s on Broad Street. Adam & Eve in Mechanicsville, part of a national chain, bills itself as a sex-positive destination for couples.
