Hi, my name is Matie, and I'm one of the owners of Self Serve in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We're a retail store in Nob Hill and we also have a website, selfservetoys.com. We are different from other stores because we are women owned and run, education-based, and we think that sex is healthy and pleasure is good for you.
We know sex is a big deal. From the time you're 18 to 80 and beyond, sex is a part of your life, and it changes throughout that time. We're here to help through all of those changes. If you have any questions about sexuality that you have just been waiting for a safe place to ask, ask us. If you are looking for a resource that you haven't been able to find, ask us. If you want to find a toy that will rock your world, ask us. We're happy to help.
Some shops focus on quantity over quality. At Self Serve, we're very different. We only stock products that we know are good design, because believe me, there's a lot of bad design in this industry. Every single product on the shelves, we have tested, we review, we put through a very strict review process so that by the time it ends up on our shelf, we're in love and we think you can be too.
Our joke is, we have bad sex so you don't have to. By the time something is on our shelf and you pick it up, you know that it will work the way it promises to.
Self Serve is different from most other sex stores because we will not sell toys that could cause you harm. The adult industry in the United States is completely unregulated. The bulk of what gets sold at most sex toys stores, are full of toxins and carcinogens. There are literally ingredients in sex toys that are illegal in dog toys. You won't find those on our shelves. We only sell toys that we feel safe using so that you can feel safe using them as well.
Self Serve is much more than just a sex toy store. We also have trained staff here to answer your questions about sexuality. When it comes to sex education, most of us have been given very little real information. When you got sex education in school, if you were lucky enough to get it, you probably got information about reproductive health, but very little information when it comes to pleasure.
When it comes to learning how to do something new, it's good to have a place to go to ask questions. We offer classes and workshops once a week on everything from blowjobs 101 to keeping it hot in a long term relationship. Our class schedule changes every single month and can be found right here at this link. Check it out—you'll be glad you did it!
We believe that sex is healthy and pleasure is good for you. If you want to have a good time, come visit us here in Albuquerque or on our website. We are here to help and we look forward to doing that work!
