Bite the Fruit is a peerless retailer of adult novelties and provocative apparel. We promote healthy sexual and sensual exploration. We thoughtfully assembled tantalizing furnishings that titillate, captivate, soothe, sting or whip in just the right way.
Established in 2012 in Washington, DC, Bite the Fruit is gay-owned, straight-friendly and kink forward. We cater to everyone guided by what is safe, sane and consensual. Let us know if you have questions or if we can be of service in any way.
Only a fraction of our selection is available through our website. In our physical store, we carry quality women's lingerie and men's underwear as well as a full complement of BDSM and fetish gear, adult film, books and erotica.
We love our customers
Bite the Fruit fosters safe, sound and mature examination and experimentation in human sexuality. We listen to, empathize with and respect our customers. We meet our customers where they’re at regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, level of participation, extent of knowledge or kink persuasion. We truly love our customers and work hard to demonstrate it in meaningful ways.
We love our community
Bite the Fruit is committed to the well-being of our community. Through philanthropy and volunteerism, we support efforts to address significant issues affecting the LGBTQ community and the community at large. Further, as residents and stakeholders in the nation's capital, we actively contribute our time and resources to keep our city safe, clean and attractive.
