Product, Taxes, Shipping & Return Policies
Prior to ordering any product from this Site, you have read, understand, and agree to the Policies, Terms and Conditions.

PRICING
The pricing displayed is based on the US Dollar $, and will be charged as the US dollar. If you live in an area/country other than the US, your bank will charge you their conversion rate at the time of the order.

SHIPPING
Most orders will ship within 48 hours after the order is received, excluding weekends. Delivery usually takes 4-30 business days. Check our Delivery Estimates section for more information. We use USPS, FedEx and UPS for our shipments. Items from our Adult Section will be shipped either USPS or UPS only. We reserve the right to change the method of shipping which was selected at check-out.

SHIPPING COSTS
Shipping charges are determined by weight. The charge will be itemized when you proceed to our secure check out.

We will notify you of any order package that is returned back to us due to customer error, including “Forwarding Expired, No Such Address, Unknown, No longer here, Attempted Not Known.” Such order shall be reshipped out and will be charged an additional freight charge. If credit is requested for such return, product only is credited. Shipping charge is not credited.

All orders are discreetly packaged and labeled to enhance your gay and lesbian shopping experience and further protect your privacy. 

You will receive your order in a plain box (brown packaging as provided by the Post Office). There won’t be any rainbows, LGBTQ symbols or any other markings displayed on your package. 

Our return address (without our company name) and your address are the only markings. We are sensitive to the earth’s environment and reuse boxes and shipping material that are shipped to us.

BACKORDERS
If an item is out of stock on a multi-item order, we reserve the right to hold the complete shipment of the order until the item that is out of stock arrives into our warehouse. We will notify you by email if your order is put on backorder. Backorders are shipped within 20-50 business days.

CHANGES TO EXISTING ORDERS
If you need to make changes/cancel an order you have placed, please Contact Us to ensure that the change happens. Email is not always reliable.

PRIVACY
