Going strong since 1987, Spartacus
is Portland's premier shop for sex toys, dildos, lingerie, costumes, leather gear, vibrators, Clone A Willy
(also a Portland company, by the way), and sorts of other items for fun in the bedroom...or the living room...or on the dining room table. Spartacus welcomes everybody and has a big following in the gay community, although the majority of the clientele is hetero. The staff is typically fun and helpful, a departure from many surly Portland sex shops.
Spartacus is at 300 S.W. 12th Ave. (503-224-2604), near West Burnside and the Stark Street gay bar strip. The company also does a brisk mail-order business online.
