Looking for an adult store in the Gopher State?
Known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the Upper Midwest state of Minnesota is known for its rural landscapes and makes a great rural escape. It covers a large area and is home to a lot of people but there isn’t a huge choice available when it comes to adult stores. But there are some good ones nestled in and around this beautiful region.
In this Minnesota Adult Stores guide, we give you a full county-by-county rundown of the best places to shop for your adult toys, lingerie and XXX movies. From the sex shops in the state capital of St. Paul to the adult bookstores in rural Minnesota we have all the info you need.
Let’s get started!

Adult Stores in Minnesota
Made up of 87 individual counties, Minnesota is the 12th largest of the United States of America but is just the 22nd most populous.
Around 5.64 million people live in the Land of 10,000 lakes yet there are relatively few adult stores where you can pick up XXX personal items.
In total, you’ll find less than 30 sex shops in Minnesota but there are a few dozen more outlets where you might be able to get some basics.
This came as a bit of a surprise to use when we were compiling this list.
When you check data obtained by Google, it would appear that residents in this part of America are pretty open-minded. Recent online sales data suggests that the bestselling kind of sex toy in Minnesota is bondage gear.
And this is backed up by sales reports from the internet adult store, Kink who report leather hardware as the most popular kind of toy sold in the state. Perhaps the lack of adult stores in the Gopher State means more people have to buy online?
But it’s not all kinks and fetishes. According to data reported by the national sex toy retailers, Adam & Eve, the most popular sex toy in this state is the Pure Enrichment Peak Wand Massager.
You can find adult stores in just 11 of Minnesota’s 87 counties and most of these are located in the southeast corner of the state, close to Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Outside of this area, there are just a handful of other stores to choose from but you do still have some other options, particularly if you are near the state borders.
This Midwest state adjoins four other states as well as Canada to the north. Whilst we can’t tell you what kind of adult stores our neighbours in the Great White North have, we do have local guides to the best sex shops in:
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
Adult Stores in Minneapolis and St. Paul
The vast majority of Minnesota’s adult stores can be found in and around the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
These include a decent range of mainstream outlets of national sex toy retailers as well as independent boutiques, fetish and kink shops plus lingerie stores.
You can find listings for these two cities under the Hennepin County section but also check out the adjoining areas of:
- Anoka County
- Ramsey County
- Dakota County
The twin cities are also located very close to the state border with Wisconsin so you might want to check out what the Badger State has to offer.
Located to the northeast of Minneapolis in the southern east of Minnesota, Anoka County is home to a population of more than 360,000 people.
Yet despite being one of the state’s most populous areas, there are just four towns and cities where you can find adult stores.
If you need a wider selection of shops to browse in then your best option is to head to the twin cities. Alternatively, you aren’t far from the eastern border with Wisconsin where you can find some additional adult stores.

You do have a couple of alternatives close by with Blue Earth County to the west and Olmstead County to the east.
If you still need some more options then the State of Iowa isn’t too far to the south.
