When Matilda’s opened its virtual ‘doors’ way back in 2005, it was the only purely online adult store in South Africa, and one of only a handful of stores, online or off, where you could choose from a range of adult toys and lingerie.
Since then, the industry has grown hugely in South Africa, and there are brick and mortar stores in most large cities, along with a number of online stores. Most of these stores are reputable, but we’ve come across a couple that bring the rest of us a bad name, so we’d like to share some tips with you about making sure your online shopping is safe. These tips apply to any kind of online shopping, so we hope you’ll find them handy.
We at Matilda’s are thrilled that so many large and small stores are opening in South Africa. We believe that healthy competition is always good – it keeps all of us on our toes and makes sure we’re always bringing you the best quality products at the best prices.
We also believe that it signals a change in our country, where people are becoming more open about sexuality, and more willing to talk about and work on having a healthy sex life in healthy relationships. That’s something we can always get behind.
But when an industry is growing so fast, there will always be some chancers who try to ‘take the money and run’, so we urge you to make sure you’re shopping safely, online and off. We want your sexy times to be fun from start to finish, and that includes choosing and buying your goodies. Follow our tips and you’ll be off to a great start in your sexy online shopping experience!
