Universities & Colleges


Our stores have always worked with the faculty and students of educational institutions.

Since 1996, we have worked both informally answering product and business questions on our sales floors, renting clothing and props for student/ independent films and projects, and formally offering workshops at colleges and universities and working with interns. . We have also  presented workshops in-store as well  as on-campus for groups and courses on topics like fetish fashion, costuming and corsets .

In our current locations, it has become difficult to manage student queries and assist with student projects informally, and therefore we request that instructors or faculty advisers and their students make advance appointments for any task that does not involve actively shopping for products.

If an assigned project involves reporting on a shopping experience, then we ask that students be instructed to shop as would any customer even if they do not make a purchase (although because we do offer many products with selling prices of under $5 we recommend that researchers invest in a complete shopping experience by visiting the store, interacting with staff and checking out with a purchase). We even have created an anonymous online shopper survey that instructors could assign as a fundraiser for a chosen charity (we will donate a maximum $200 financial contribution in any given month for completed surveys at $10 per survey).


— Assistance/consultation with student interviews and research assignments by appointment
