Best Adult Store
Let’s get this out of the way: Yeah, Bondesque has a gimp on staff. But this Lake Street boutique, opened in 2013, shouldn’t just bring to mind that scene in Pulp Fiction. Think high-quality leatherwear, full-body latex jumpsuits, whips, ropes, fuck-me pumps, lace-up boots, mechanized sex toys, and, yes, plain old vibrators and dildos; the store’s got whatever you need. It’s also a place to pick up whatever you need to take the next step (or get started) on a sexy new lifestyle. Including instructions: Several times each month, Bondesque hosts two-hour classes on how to indulge bondage, domination, spanking, sensory deprivation, and humiliation, among other kinks. Because no one should have to feel ashamed or confused — unless that’s what gets them off.
