Now that you know what your outdoor options are this Valentine's Day, let's move things to the bedroom. You've wooed your lover there with a thoughtful card and teased them with a peek at your lingerie, but what about props? Lucky for us, LA is sizzling with erotic stores that offer all sorts of "body party" playthings.

From fetish costumes at Spice Lingerie in DTLA to whips and chains at JT's Stockroom in Silver Lake to DVDs and toys at Hustler in Hollywood, if you fantasize about it, they have it. We've added two more spots to last year's map, so see below for the latest and greatest.
