Self Serve founders Matie Fricker and Molly Adler wrangle a trained staff of sexuality experts and a trove of adult accessories, fostering a convivial ambiance described in New Mexico Business Weekly as being "as much about education and self-love as it is about toys." Locally made CW Therapeutics aromatherapy massage oil enables sweet-scented kneading ($17.50), and The Tingler scalp massager ($12.95) bounces across crowns to soothe cantankerous fezzes. Power Bullets ($14.95), whose bright shells fit neatly into purses or pockets, unleash discreet pulses at three speeds. Handmade blindfolds crafted in New Mexico ($13.95) bring a sense of playfulness to bedtime or driver's-test time.
As they chat with welcoming staff, visitors can lounge beneath spherical lights on Self Serve's retro-chic furniture, including a silver glitter vinyl couch. The boutique also acquaints guests with floor models of each body-safe item, as well as advice for its operation, maintenance, and use in crafting memorable centerpieces.
