Adler and Fricker are co-owners of Self Serve, a sex shop that is far more than a sex shop. The store is as much about education and self-love as it is about toys and fetishes. Self Serve caters to a diverse clientele: women over 60 looking to experience their first orgasm, married couples who want to keep their sex lives healthy, people recovering from trauma, new parents, those who like things kinky and others who, when talking about sex, can only speak in a whisper. Adler and Fricker make it a point to make everyone feel welcome.

There are no posters with women in suggestive lingerie or striking come-hither poses designed to appeal to the "male gaze. Fricker, the owner of Self Serve, said people of every gender, from ages 18 to 80, go to Self Serve to learn how to achieve sexual satisfaction for themselves and for their partners. Patrons find hanging plants in the windows, lots of cheery sunlight streaming in through southern facing windows, a couch with a brightly colored — and anatomically correct — vagina pillow nestled at the arm and a myriad of sex toys displayed on shelves that line the walls. The heater buzzes as warm air fills the space and seems to invite people to make themselves comfortable and feel welcome to ask questions. Rather than being a place solely focused on providing an entertaining and sexy experience — like a strip club or an adult video store — Self Serve distinguishes itself as a place where people learn about themselves and their partners and where people can get individualized advice and support.

THE BUSINESS OF PLEASURE
The shop is setting out to raise public awareness about phthalates -- toxins commonly used to manufacture adult toys -- by introducing Phthalate Awareness Month this April. Operating in a largely unregulated industry, many adult toy manufacturers continue to use phthalates, despite incomplete data about their safety, for consumer use and in their factories. All of the toys at Self Serve are body-safe and phthalate-free. Self Serve will also issue a call to manufacturers asking them to improve the quality of information they disclose about how their toys are produced. Self Serve advises its customers to seek out platinum-grade silicone, glass, and metal toys like those sold on the site.
So, as I was planning the different legs of the Superhero Sex Shop Tour I carefully mapped the trips so I could visit multiple shops in a logical manner- I was lucky, it worked out very well… for the most part. When am I going to get to Albuquerque?! Problem solved….
