Chains and whips aren’t the only thing that excites Rihanna, thanks to the National Enquirer we now know what else does. RiRi and her “friend” Drake were spending a nice afternoon at Wicked Wanda’s Adult Emporium in Ottawa as most close friends do.

Oddly enough no reports on what Drake purchased though.
