Good Vibrations

It’s possible—almost—to mistake Good Vibrations for a bookstore. It’s not so much what the Coolidge Corner shop stocks (the dildo-to-hardcover ratio is skewed very, very heavily toward the former) as it is the studiously professional vibe. The well-organized space means browsers won’t mistake bendy beads for bedroom dice, and the overall selection is unbeatable. As one patron described it, ‘They carry the latest and greatest, as well as the staples.’
