Early 2 Bed is the best! Comfortable space, great selection, and a friendly and knowledgeable staff. What else could you ask for? I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Love Early to Bed. Really, it's hands down the best shop for sex goodies in town.

Their curated product offering is exactly what I was looking for... I don't like buying stuff and finding out 'later' that it wasn't what I had hoped. I appreciate that they hand-select only the best stuff that's quality made. I also like that they have reviews of everything and I can read what other people thought (good and bad). Where else does this?

I really like that they are so women + queer focused too. They do have stuff for guys, but it's a nice change of pace to feel like I'm being catered to at a sex store.

This place is the real deal. I'm thankful to have found it.

Long time fan!

Pros: curated product offering, not creepy + super friendly

Cons: none except maybe parking, but it's worth it!

Early To Bed is by far the most interesting and exciting sex shop I've ever visited. It's not seedy, it's not cheesy, it's welcoming, and it's actually a lot of fun. Searah, who owns the shop (and was the first ever female sex shop owner in Chicago!) is the nicest person,and she knows everything about every one of the toys in the shop, all of which you can handle and turn on and basically do everything except "try it out." There are no embarrassing boxes, or mouth-breathing men looking for pornos. This is a shop that you are comfortable going into by yourself, with a girlfriend--I've even been in there and seen women with their mothers.

But I think the most impressive thing about Early To Bed is its celebration of individuality and its dedication not to force women into pre-determined models of beauty or sexiness. Everyone is welcome there--straight, gay, bisexual, transgendered, thin, fat, gorgeous, um, not-so-gorgeous--really! It's kind of a magical place that dispels every myth you could have about sex shops. You aren't accosted by racks of black lace garters and red teddies and intimations of "pleasing your man." Early to Bed is about pleasing *yourself* and maybe your very lucky partner.

And it's beautiful. It feels cozy inside and clean--more like a gallery than a store--and I get a little thrill every time I go inside and see the toys on their long shelves against the wall. I'm never embarrassed there--and for me, that's saying a lot.

If you haven't been, you should go. It's better than online, because you can actually try things, and it's better than other shops because it's *genuine.*

Early to Bed is the best store for all types of sextoys and they have the MOST knowledgable staff. The store itself is amazing and the online store is great too if you are far away or prefer descretion. There is no other store in this business that compares to the way this store, staff and thier products promote sex-positive feminism. The staff actually know what they are talking about and make it easy to shop. They give you the space to browse on your own and leave you alone if thats what you want, but they are right there if you have questions. They have the best variety no matter what you are looking for -products for women or products for our trans community. I highly recommend Early to Bed.

There is no store like Early to Bed in Chicago. Not since Babes in Toyland has such a wonderful, radical, feminist, amazing store come alive. Seriously...don't even bother going anywhere else - this place will knock you off your butt. The staff are amazing and know things that other stores couldn't even begin to explain. Go go go go go go go GO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, drop what you're doing and go right now.

This store is welcoming to all people. You can park across the street in the Dominicks parking lot and the staff is super helpful and knowledgeable.

I love this place. At first, I was very shy going to a "toy store", but the woman behind the counter made me feel at home, and that none of my questions were "stupid." The prices were very affordable, and I was happy with my experience.

For the reviewer who said "the atmosphere is a little too dykey" - I think that is homophobia on their part. It seems more a reflection on where they're at, than the store's atmosphere.

I am not a lesbian, but felt completely comfortable shopping at Early To Bed. So I highly recommend this cozy store!

Pros: Ambience, Helpful, Good Prices

They definitely have their niche here. Well-priced, wide selection, friendly staff. There's something for everyone (and some things that WON'T be for you). They do a good job of normalizing all kinds of sex practice. Clean and quirky, mayeb a little sterile.

I want a comfortable environment and a wide selection. Although this is a women's store, it just doesn't deliver.

I love this store, its well set up, inviting, the people are polite and helpful with any questions. The selection is nice and they will order when able, they have reviews of the items (so you don't spend half an hour staring at an odd item wondering what it does). The store itself is warm, rather than dark and seedy.

This is a great little store up in the Edgewater community. Sareah, the owner, the fabulous and very community oriented. She has educational workshops in her store as well as a great display. I think the thing people like most about the store is the descriptions next to the items so you don't have to ask embarrasing questions about sex toys. She also has a great website that is easy to navigate and she sends cure things in your very discrete package.

This the best a great place - and she gives back to the community!

This has got to be the best sex shop in chicago! The staff is all women (no creepy men learing at you) and SUPER friendly. They totally know what they are talking about and spent a lot of time helping me pick out a new toy. I also saw something there that I had bought somewhere else for $10 cheaper! Seriously, this my new favorite place to shop!
