with new art and music venues, restaurants and coffee shops, and the radical anarchist bookstore on the corner, but it finally has its very own sex toy shop, and now we never have to leave the neighborhood for anything again. PERVfect Playground is co-owned by long-married couple and now business partners, Melissa and Nicole Aikens, who balance the new business with their other jobs as correctional officers in Baltimore City and County. Their shop is situated in the lower level at 2011 North Charles, and Melissa and Nicole are both there, encouraging customers to come on down and check out their wares. Because they are just opening the selection is a bit sparse right now, but they're offering up high-powered vibrators, a wide selection of lingerie and hose for people of all sizes, and the promise of a growing collection of dildos and BDSM gear. All of it is available to try out at their play bar, and there is a promise of a workshop area for classes and a stage and pole are already up, should that suit your fancy. They hope to cater to professionals as well as those looking to spice up their sex lives with partners or by themselves. Customers will find an impeccably clean store, incredibly friendly and open service without judgment, and luxury merchandise for the discerning pleasure-seeker. And while you're there, check out the pen that vibrates and writes—the perfect gift for the busy professional in your life. Welcome to the neighborhood, ladies!
