If your curiosity still hasn't been satisfied, one option remains: the antique sex toy collection at your local branch library. Oh, wait, your library doesn't have one? In that case, you'd better head to the CENTER FOR SEXUAL PLEASURE AND HEALTH (250 Main Street, thecsph.org) in Pawtucket. The CSPH is home to the aforementioned collection — look out for the Pulsocran Hand Crank, patented in 1902, and a 1940s Hollywood Vibra-Tone, Model HV1700 — and nearly a thousand books to answer every question in your dirty little mind. If titles like Cheeky Spanking Stories, Sex Sex Sex, 101 Places to Have Sex Before You Die, With the Hand: A Cultural History of Masturbation, Phone Sex: Aural Thrills and Oral Skills, and Learning the Ropes: A Basic Guide to Safe and Fun S/M Lovemaking don't do the trick, CSPH director Megan Andelloux is available to schedule one-on-one sexuality consultations. When was the last time you talked about sex with a librarian?

The libraries mentioned above are all open to the public, though membership options, lending policies, and hours vary. See Facebook and each library's website for more information.
