After two decades of selling dildos, lingerie, and furry-tailed butt plugs, Toronto's most iconic sex store is coming to an end.
Seduction, which once spanned three floors with Toronto's largest stock of adult toys and accessories for the bedroom (or the dungeon, or the swingers club), is closing at the end of April.
The shop will be vacating its longtime home at 577 Yonge St.—arguably the most sex-positive building in Toronto—and will be moving the majority of its stock to its remaining store at Queen and Spadina.
Also closing up shop is Brass Vixens, Toronto's first ever pole studio located upstairs.
Following years of teaching pole classes on the fourth floor 'attic' of Seduction's historic building, Brass Vixens will be closing officially on March 27 and opening a new location at Pape and the Danforth.
According to the studio's website, they'll be moving out of the old Edwardian building to make way for a new condo—not surprising given the quickly changing landscape of Yonge Street at the hands of residential developers.
Right now, Seduction's basement and third floor are being cleared out, with their impressive collection of fetish outfits, BDSM gear, vibrators, and condoms now moved to the first floor.
Their store on Queen Street is much tinier than their current three-storey space, so they've got some major sales happening to clear out their extra inventory—time to get those anal beads you always wanted.
