Depending on where you live, you can buy a vibrator online or in-person at a local store — and no, your purchase does not have to take place inside a sex toy shop!

These days, even big box stores like Target and niche vendors at the mall — including Spencer’s or Urban Outfitters — sell sex toys.

Still, online shopping is a great option if you’d prefer to keep your vibrator purchase as discreet as possible.

All you need is a mailing address, a credit card, and an internet connection.

That said, in-person shopping can be ideal when you don’t know what you want and would like to ask a few questions.

Regardless of how you prefer to shop, there are plenty of places to buy a vibrator — if you know where to look.

In this article we’ll talk about:

Editor’s Note: This article is part of our Complete Guide To Vibrators and Everything Vibrators hub, in-depth and evolving resources that comprehensively explore all aspects of vibrators from the different types and how to use them, to materials and safety — created to help you achieve the sexual pleasure you deserve.

Where To Buy A Vibrator

So you’re ready to buy a vibrator — but where do you go?

Where To Buy Vibrators In Person

Depending on where you live, you likely have options for purchasing a vibrator in person, whether at a sex toy shop, a big box store like Target, or a niche shop at the mall.

Shopping for a vibrator in a brick-and-mortar store allows you to talk with a sales clerk directly, which can be helpful if you’re not sure what to buy.

(On that note, a helpful vibrator quiz can also help you in your search!)

Shopping for a vibrator is also a fun date-night idea if your partner supports sex toy use in the bedroom because you can select one together, take it home, and heat things up right away!

Mall stores like Urban Outfitters and Spencer’s carry vibrators, as do some Target, Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens locations — usually around the area where condoms are sold.

If any of the stores mentioned above are local to you, they’re worth checking out.

Additionally, you can look up local adult stores in your area and plan a visit, as well.

If you’re at all shy about purchasing a sex toy in person, don’t be.

The folks working behind the counter are knowledgeable and fully aware of what they’re selling — they’re not going to judge you for it.

How To Secretly Or Discreetly Buy A Vibrator

Buying a vibrator is very easy but not everyone wants their sexual preferences out there for the world to see.

Thankfully, most online sex toy retailers are very discreet when it comes to purchases.

Adam & Eve is always a safe bet since we’ve heavily tested their purchasing process.

Your Adam & Eve goodies will arrive in a plain, white, boring envelope with no mention of the company’s name on the label.

Not even the mailman delivering the package will know you bought the Venus Butterfly Remote Venus G.

You can also count on Adam & Eve to be listed discreetly on your billing statement.

So if you’re extra private, Adam & Eve has got your back!

Is There An Age Limit For Buying Vibrators?

In general, there are no legal age restrictions on buying a vibrator, but if you’re under the age of 18, access will depend on where you live and where you shop.

If shopping in person is out of the question because of your age and location, purchasing a vibrator online will likely be much easier.
