Bundy couples’ favourite item in the bedroom revealed

IT'S the little shop where no one leaves with a frown, according to owner Dave Kidd.

Mr Kidd has owned the Walker St Into Love store for 11 years after buying it from his mum who started the chain of Into Love adult shops in Queensland.

"I never know who's going to walk though the door or what people are going to buy," Mr Kidd said.

And while there were some classic items that were always popular, Mr Kidd said their biggest seller came with a bit of a twist.

The store's most popular item is strap-on penises for women to use on men - with more than one a week flying off the shelves.

"Everyone's different, but the one thing I sell a lot of is strap-ons for couples for women to use on men," he said.

"The Gladstone store doesn't sell anywhere near as many strap-ons.

"The prostate is the male G spot."

Mr Kidd said he believed women enjoyed the feeling of being in control with their partners.

"Every woman I've spoken to about it says they like the power of it," he said.

Mr Kidd said other popular items were devices for women, mankinis and lubricant.

"Pretty much everyone buys lube," he said.

"I sell a lot of mankinis, I just sold two on Saturday."

Mr Kidd said his business was a blend of fun and humour but also had a more serious side helping older men or men who have gone through difficulties with their prostate.

"We can a lot of referrals from doctors and we can help them, to a point," he said.

Older age is no barrier in the adult industry, with customers in Bundaberg ranging in ages.

"Most of my customers would be over 40, but in Bundaberg you've got an older population," Mr Kidd said.

"I've had a woman who I swear was in her 90s in here, and she knew exactly what she wanted and just walked right over to it."

Mr Kidd said from a business perspective times could be tough when people had less money to spend on leisure, but the Bundaberg store had been fairly steady.

It seems the fever from Fifty Shades of Grey has died down, however.

"After Fifty Shades of Grey we were selling about 20 duo balls a week - they were in Fifty Shades of Grey - and now we're only selling one to two a week," Mr Kidd said.

All in all, Mr Kidd said it was a happy and welcoming store just like any other.

"You never ever leave anyone unhappy," he said.

"It's the best shop in town because everyone leaves with a smile on their face."
