Buying sex toys in Thailand

 I cannot find any shops in Phuket or further afield in Thailand that sell marital aids or sex toys. Are there any here? Or are such devices/shops illegal here? Am I allowed to buy them on the Internet and have them sent to me here?

“It is illegal to to buy or sell sex toys, or open a sex shop, in Thailand. It is also illegal to import such devices to Thailand. If you order sex toys on the Internet or have friends send them to you, and we discover them, we are required to confiscate them.”
