The first sex shops in Spain opened in 1980. These were aimed at men with their bookcases of x rated films and shelves of erotic toys. Definitely not a province for women.
Anne Summers opened their first Spanish store in Valencia May 2005. In September 2006 Estefanía Cordova and her sister Gabriela opened Fresas y Chocolate in Alicante. These new sex shops sell all manner of sex toys and exotic lingerie aimed at both men and women.
The peculiar thing is that, according Estefanía, " now it is the men who feel uncomfortable when they enter the store ".
So, the fashion to give a vibrator to enjoy the Christmas celebrations has arrived in the Valencian Community.
I think Pamela preferred the cosy slippers I bought her!
