The longest running sex shop in the city (and indeed Ireland).

The shop is of a moderate size and nicely presented. A good range of DVD's and videos (yes, somebody is still selling them!) plus a wide variety of toys, novelties and adult mags. Helpful staff a plus as well. Well worth a visit.

  News May 2012: ETO Awards 2012

Scandals has been nominated for the Best Individual Store in the 2012 Erotic Trade Only Awards:

  From Dawn: Recent refurb

Even before its recent refurbishment making the shop at least 4 times as big, it was well worth a visit for all your sexual needs and more. The staff would order you stuff that they didn't have in and they nearly always had items in.

Since it's recent refurb, however, their stock has become more widespread with new items arriving every day. The staff knew their regulars and would show the latest arrivals they knew we would enjoy. Their array of vibrators and anal toys was vast, along with their dvds and videos.

The staff are great, they try out all the items and will let u try the open vibrators that are behind the counter before you buy. They make you feel welcome and follow our own belief that sex is completely natural and as a woman feel at ease going in their on my own.

Scandals is well worth a visit

  From ETO's Mystery Shopper, June 2013: Perfectly Decent

No longer any reference to a sex cinema but still has lap dancing and preview booths.

Most R18 DVDs are a basic £30 but have a 3 for 2 offer. There are also titles at £20 and a clearance line at £10.

There was a helpful manager who made for perfectly decent licensed store.

  Review from Gerry, Oct 2009: Spot On

Your current comments are spot on.

DVDs are expensive, cinema show is excellent. Striptease is fine and the young lady doubles up as the lap dancer. Lap dance costs £20.

  Review July 2006: 'one-stop' sex central

I know this review section is supposed to be about shops. How about a shop, a cinema, preview booths, a striptease (four times daily), Oh! yes! I forgot...a private lapdance... No kidding!

As far as I know this place is a one-off! This 'shop' is simply a 'one-stop' sex central

The sex shop alone is worth a visit. They must have 2000 titles available. A great range of toys and clothing too... there were a few ladies in there and couples. As well the usual mix of guys like myself.

It has a 100 seat cinema... playing many of the latest releases. Special preview booths are there too... and I've only ever seen these in Amsterdam. These were great. You can check out a movie before you buy it. The striptease was free, as it was in with the cost of the admittance into the cinema.. About £10 I think. Not sure about the private dance, but this was definitely available.

The staff were very helpful and polite and asked if their help were needed, which it wasn't as they'd already done such a good display of categorizing their movies.

As I reached to pay for my DVD's... My eye was taken to a fantastic area for all sorts of sexual enhancers... too many to mention here.. But I'm sure they'll be needed in a few years.

A one-stop sex centre in the middle of the country a stone's throw away from New Street Station... A wonderful idea in a great location... well worth a visit... How much was that lapdance again?

  January 2006: Good Range

Shop is quite small but with a good range of films – just a token amount of other stuff (clothes / toys etc).

Only problem is the prices - £35 per DVD. I understand the cost of the licence is £9000 but London is only a train ride away and at £20 per film you would only need to buy a few to pay for a train ticket….

  Review from Peter, April 2010: Clean and Tidy
I was in Birmingham with a woman friend recently when she said she'd always wanted to see inside a sex shop. We found one called Amsterdam XXX. We looked around for a while and as we were about to leave the chap behind the counter said there was a cinema downstairs and couples were free. Just have a look, you don't have to stay long.

I followed her down the stairs and into the narrow darkened room. There were about eight men sat about the place watching a porn film on the end wall. We sat down and watched the film, she was more fascinated watching the men in there. Eventually we left, and as we were driving out of Birmingham she said she was surprised how clean and tidy it all was. Not nasty like she'd imagined a place like that would be. Now she's coming up with ideas of what she'd like to do if we went back.

  Comment, Oct 2009: Good Choice

There is a good choice of expensive DVDs

  December 2004: Cinema

Part of the shop's problem was the constantly flickering lights and the need for air fresheners. DVDs are priced at £40 with £20 exchange. There is a cinema downstairs. A simple selection of bondage toys.

  From a reader, Feb 2007: Wow, What a Shop

What a delightful experience, well modern stylish a bit classy even! 'yeah in a sex shop '

The staff were very helpful and if there was something you are looking that they don't already have they get on the phone there and then, to order it for you.

When I got hold of the 2 back issues of my Harmony Concepts films that same week I was 'well happy' even more so as I got them at the standard rate + discount!

ALWAYS a genuine bargain to be had on their sale shelf too starting at £14.99 seems to be a honest shop that's stood the time.

  From a reader:

A bright clean (unsleazy) licensed shop near city centre , with friendly helpful staff. Stocking over 200 R18 titles (video and DVD), magazines, excellent range of toys .

I informed the shop owner of your site, and she is gonna offer a discount to future customers who mention your site.

  From ETO's Mystery Shopper, June 2013: Traditional

A very traditional shop.

DVDs range from £10 bargains to £40 for some fetish titles.

A good manager and a good atmosphere.

  January 2006:

Shop looks a little drab from the outside but inside it is well laid out with a reasonable range of films grouped according to category. Doesn't stock
much in the way of toys etc. I wanted to buy a couple of films but £35 each . I asked  about reduced prices such a 2 for £50 and was told no but pointed to a rack of films on offer for £20 each – unfortunately nothing took my fancy although they were all OK films (if a little old).

Staff were friendly and helpful despite not agreeing to a multi-buy deal!

  Review from Malcolm, September 2012: Seeking High Definition

[Following on from getting good discounts at the West Bromwich Private Shop]... Strangely another Private shop at Hockley Hill, Birmingham refused to give any discount at all on three Blu-ray's, had I wanted to purchase them, (Of course I did not).

The manager at West Bromwich (Who apparently manages all three shops in the Birmingham area told me that was incorrect and that I could purchase 3 Blu-ray discs for the same price as HD DVD discs......

But thus far I have been satisfied with the local Private shops.

  From Mel, January 2006: Looking for Hidden gems

My friend and I visited this shop on 19th January 2006. Its a new shop to the area and I didn't think it would be any good due to the location, its mainly surrounded by small businesses that specialise in clothing and its close to the jewelry quarter.

The lad who was running the shop was very pleasant and not at all sleazy as you would expect of a lad who has access to so much porn !!!

DVDs start at £10 each, without a case. They have 3 films on each disc and are good value for money. Being a first timer to this particular shop I was given a freebie which he admitted was rubbish !! BUT it was free so who's complaining???

Good range of toys and hundreds of magazines. Only complaint.... we couldn't look at them first !! Defo be going back as I live locally. BTW My friend and I are female, so its nice to get an opinion from both sides of the coin!!

  Reader Review:

Saints & Sinners has to be one of the nicest, least seedy adult shops I've visited. The store is clean and bright... unless of course you decide to take a trip to the dungeon... no it's not that bad! A really nicely fitted out basement serves as a fantastic S&M show room, while the main shop is very open and well lit (unlike some shops!). 

My girlfriend and I felt happy going in as a couple & we've even been back individually, and always felt welcome! Think Ann Summers with less purple, more light and less commercial!

  From ETO's Mystery Shopper, October 2011: Well Presented and Discreet

The shop is owned and managed by Dom Productions which specialises in fetish/BDSM DVDs. So a fair amount of related material is on sale.

There were some expensive DVDs on sale for £40 but there were deals of 3 for 2 on gay films and there was a promotional box of £15 DVDs.

Perhaps a little pricey, but overall, a well presented discreet shop.

  From Nice 'n' Naughty, June 2008: 5 Star Review

In the June issue of ETO, their Mystery Shopper was in Bolton, visiting the town's adult stores, visiting 6 stores in the town.

Out of the 6 stores under review, the Nice'n' Naughty branch was the only store awarded the maximum 5 star, As good as it gets in any retail sector rating for its store.

The review went on to say: Inside, the shop has an excellent selection of R18 DVD's; Male and female staff added a pleasant air as I admired magazines and a great toy wall, all to the strings of some gentle calming music. The space was utilised wonderfully, with a central isle holding bondage bits, lingerie and Kinky Heals. Another bell from the door told me I was no longer shopping alone, and a busy shop is a good shop.

Philip Price, Area Manager for the branch, said that it was a testament to the dedication from the company's staff and the commitment they give to their customers that keep them market leaders in the adult retail industry.

  From Phil, Feb 2007: Rampant Selection

Nipped in there yesterday, thinking Valentines day, and me being in serious trouble as I'd not got anything for her yet; and how surprised was I!

First by the range of toys, DVDs and Lingerie, but also by how comfortable the place felt! The guy behind the counter was really friendly, and seemed to know what he was talking about!

They had a great range of Rampant Rabbits, which should keep anyone's wife happy, including mine! He took me through their different functions, and I ended up with an all singing all dancing version that should keep her happy for hours!

Then it was on to something to wear, and ended up with a rather slinky set from Wild Designs!

Will definitely be in there again, and may even treat us to a DVD, will take the wife next time as well, as I'm sure she'll fell as relaxed in there as I did!

Well done nicennaughty for creating a sex shop for the 21st century!

I felt comfortable and wouldn't mind going in without my other half if I wanted.

Our purchase was wrapped in brown paper for discretion and we left feeling comfy.

It is a licenced shop and I would recommend it to all who wish to browse and purchase.

  From Richard, December 2005:
A bookshop with a porn magazine section discreetly located at the back, the porn mags can be exchanged the same way as their books - so long as they are in "good condition" of course.

They also stock a few reasonably priced sex toys and and adult dvd's

It's a friendly enough shop that doesn't attract to many weirdo's. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit the place, but for a small shop it is well stocked on porn mags - and they can be had very cheap if you don't mind buying "pre-owned".

  News May 2010: ETO Awards 2010

Located on St James Street, this was formerly a branch of Clonezone until it was acquired by Nice n Naughty last year. The store has since been refurbished and the stock range broadened.

  News from Chris, Feb 2009: Clone Becomes Naughty

I visited what used to be Clonezone on St James' Street and it is now Nice 'n' Naughty.

I was greeted by a really nice girl (think she was the naughty one LOL). Something that was a surprise in the shop, as normally when I nip in to a gay store, you normally get ignored by the staff!

It had some really nice bits, and seemed to cater for us gay boys and girls really well. I ended up getting a couple of dvds on a multi buy offer, and to my surprise was actually given some customer service!

They had a suggestion box on the counter, and the boy and girl there were really sweet and helpful.

So going to wish the new guys n gals there a lot of luck for the future, nice to see a shop that looks after its customers and willing to get them what they want in a shop.

  Mystery Shopper, May 2005: Well Laid Out

Externally it lacks some of the polish of the competition. Blinds in the window reminded me of my dentist's surgery'. Dark carpet tiles don't help to brighten the place up, but at least everything was clean and well laid out. Stock levels looked good too. Lots of choice and some good prices helped make up for this busy shops aesthetic failings

DVDS sold at £40 each and £70 for 2

Being Brighton there was also a large selection of gay DVDs

  News May 2010: ETO Awards 2010

Taboo has been nominated for the Best Individual Store in the 2010 Erotic Trade Only Awards:

One of the first retailers to get full marks from our Mystery Shopper, Brighton's Taboo went on to win the Mystery Shopper award for the best overall store visited at 2006's ETO awards.

  From Mystery Shopper, May 2005:

Combining the best of the boutique style decor with a licence to sell real porn, it was the last and best shop I visited in Brighton. Split into three distinct sections, a lot has been done with relatively limited space.

The main space featured fetish clothing and the third room was the BDSM and bondage equipment area.

There were no magazines nor VHS tapes. There was however a display of fiction and non-fiction books

DVDs on  most subjects could be found, with fetish titles particularly well represented. £30 each, £50 for 2, £70 for 3 and  £100 for 5.

A pervy paradise and this remarkable retailers gets a remarkable score. Full marks.

  From Peter

I was very pleasantly surprised when I visited Taboo in Brighton. The salesman was very helpful, advising my partner and myself on items for experimental bondage etc. I would recommend Taboo to anyone in the Brighton area, and have been back several times now, inspite of the 80 mile round trip to get there!

  From a reader

I can concur with the positive statements about the shop. When I was shopping there was a week long special on videos/DVDs which were priced at £30. I was also given a free DVD as an introductory offer.

  Update from the shop, Oct 2006:

We are soon to launch a new range of products that will be sold through other shops under the brand of My Only Vice and Think Pink

  From the shop, February 2006:

The shop is split into 3 sections the 1st section is our office and novelty section with body jewellery some lingerie, lubes, poppers and games etc anything really for a hen or stag party.

The main section then goes into sex toys and more lingerie, we have separate sections for leather, pvc and latex, I would say we probably have one of the largest stock of latex clothing and accessories. We specialise in bondage and s&m equipment and stock a huge range of cuffs, gags, hoods, slings, electroplay equipment, rope, chain and all things fetish. We stock shoes, boots, wigs and we do stock the larger sizes for Tv, crossdressers, and Ts, we are a pangendered shop and myself and my staff are in scene people with a wealth of knowledge about our products.

The rear of the shop is our DVD lounge we have a huge range of DVD and VHS films we do still cater for VHS but the range of DVD now is becoming our predominant seller. I estimate that we could have in excess of 1000 titles in stock, some of our customers have stated that we have a better range of films than the large shops in Soho. We do offer an exchange on films purchased from ourselves which our customers like, this also keeps us on our toes with the ordering of new titles, meaning that whenever customers walk in there are always new and interesting titles to chose from. We have viewing facilities in our DVD lounge and as we are licensed all our titles are R18 certificate.

We carry a large range of specialist magazines and as an independent shop buy products from all over the world. I try to bring our customers new and interesting products that you may not always find at other shops, we are continuing to increase the body jewellery section as my staff have good knowledge of body piercing and all it entails. We are now stocking a range of high quality corsets and Basques all made in the UK with a made to order service.

As a company we manufacture and install dungeon equipment, fit out fetish clubs and can transfer an idea in somebody's head into reality as one off and bespoke is our speciality. You will find our shop clean and bright, welcoming and warm, with a friendly smile from my staff.

I found this shop the other day, and Wow, its got to be the best sex shop in Suffolk.

It's got everything you could want, great selection of R18 DVD's from £19.99-£34.99.

OK it's not a huge shop, but I have never seen so many different make of vibrators in one shop. He has everything in there, and the prices are the best I have ever seen.

The guy how runs it was very helpful and had a good way with customers. My partner felt very relaxed in there, and he can tell you everything you will need to know about the toys.

I would go back time and time again, so if you are in the area its a must if you enjoy sex shops!
