Your complete satisfaction is important to us. With this in mind we have done our best to make returning a product is as fair, easy and convenient as possible. The following are our policies with respect to returns as well as instructions on how to return a product to us.
We have a 14 day return policy, subject to the following conditions: Factory sealed merchandise may be returned for an exchange or store credit, and defective products will be replaced with the same product purchased.
Returns and Cancellations:
For unopened Merchandise:
We will only accept your return of factory sealed, unopened DVD’s and Apparel for credit to your credit card within 14 days of the purchase date. Please package all items securely in a strong box and write the Invoice number clearly on the outside of the box to facilitate the return process. (We will advise you the invoice number) Please allow 2-3 weeks for credit to appear on your credit card billing statement. All unopened returns will incur a 12% restocking fee and the additional shipping charges. To protect the health of our employees and our customers, we will not exchange adult sex toys or intimate apparel (such as Bra’s, G-strings, panties, thongs, vibrators, masturbators etc.)
Opened or re-packaged (by you) merchandise will not qualify for refund.
Most DVD’s will play on a computer but that is not always guaranteed by the manufacturer. To determine if a DVD is defective, it is a good idea to try to play the movie on a standard DVD player.
Also, it is very common for older players to have difficulties playing a DVD movie. The older the player becomes, it’s laser beam deteriorates and more likely it will not play some DVD’s properly. Recent model DVD players (less than two years old) are most likely to successfully play the movie for you.
In our experience, many DVDs reported as defective are actually incompatible with the viewer’s DVD player. However, we will happily honour our 14 day defective product policy and exchange the DVD with an identical replacement. Unfortunately, we will not be replacing defective DVD’s for a different title. In case we can not source an identical DVD for you, we will offer store credit of equal value. All shipping and other charges from our end to you will be waived for replacement of defective merchandise.
Unfortunately you will have to pay for the cost of shipping the defective item to us.
Defective Adult Toys and Apparel
We will be happy to exchange any defective product with an identical working item within 14 days of purchase. If we are unable to source an identical replacement, we will offer store credit of equal value to select an alternative item. All shipping and other charges from our end to you will be waived for replacement defective merchandise.
Unfortunately you will have to pay for the cost of shipping the defective item to us.
Please package all items securely and write the Invoice number clearly on the outside of the box to facilitate the return process. We recommend insured return shipping via the carrier of your choice. Once we have received and processed your return, we will ship your replacement merchandise to you immediately.
Incorrect Size Ordered
We will replace apparel with an alternate size if the apparel has not been worn, and is still in a factory sealable state. Unfortunately, shipping charges will occur.
To protect the health of our employees and customers, we cannot exchange sex toys or intimate apparel (such as Bra’s, G-strings, panties, thongs, vibrators, masturbators etc.)
