30 second Budapest sex shop advisor.

Here’s an insightful yet breezy survey of Hungary’s sex shops where, embarrassment on the part of shoppers, is a thing of the distant past. (One reported exception was a young man “who froze stiff when he recognised an acquaintance in some gay pornography.”)

Among the highlights noted are defective or non-functioning vibrators that can be had at a sizable discount, with HUF 3000 (EUR 11.85) buying a model originally priced at HUF15,000 (EUR 60), and that customers prefer a hands-on approach, with very little interest in web shopping.

Shop owners told us that customers liked to feel the objects in their own hands, and they wanted to receive individual, expert advice.
