1 min from the station

Mon-Sat: 9am-6pm

Tel: 01722 417085

Opened in 2003. The shop is now licensed. The shop is part of the Erotica Belle chain.

  News November 2013: Application to open on Sundays

The shop has applied to the local council to open on Sundays from 10am until 6pm. The shop would also like to make the weekday opening hours half an hour later.

  News July 2013: Protest and a change of direction

Local neighbours have raised a petition against the shop's window display.

Manager Jonathan Spencer noted that the shop is trying to change its image a little and has reduced its R18 stocks, presumably to open up the appeal to women and couples.

The protestors managed just an 40 signature petition but the shop gathered an 80 signature protest supporting the shop.

  Note from Gerry, February 2013:

Both Salisbury shops are still in business, but prices are a bit high.

  Review:

It's a large well lit well stocked shop, lots of toys vids mags dvds etc, they also have hard-core viewing booths  great fun as they allow couples to use them too. Male and female staff nice and friendly with it.

  News October 2013: Council zoning excludes sex shops

Central Bedfordshire Council have adopted a morality zone ban on table dancing clubs and sex cinemas but sex shops have been excluded from zoning restrictions.

  News from Adult Pit Stop, September 2013: Council policy and a continuing Adult Pit Stop

Central Bedfordshire Council has opened a public consultation, on what is reported by the press as a nil policy. However this is a policy proposal that would be applied to future licence issuing and does not affect existing businesses. So thankfully Adult Pit Stop's future is not in any doubt.

The name on the licence was recently changed, but the same team is still running the shop.

The opening hours on Sundays are now 10.00am to 6.00pm.

The shop continues to be a very popular shop with the customer base built up over the last eight years.

  From Pat, March 2007: Industry Standard

Revisited just before Xmas, and they have increased their DVD prices to match the industry standard: £30 each.

  From Pat, May 2006: Quality & Value

I was recently on my way North from London on the A1, and found this shop. It's just after the Bedford turn off on the Northbound A1, called the Tempsford road, and is situated behind a 'Shell' garage. I think it used to be a cafe, as inside.

It is really roomy, well laid out, and has a large selection of fetish clothing, a large magazine rack, half a dozen 'island' stands with DVD's, a reasonable space for gay porn, and the walls are covered in sex toys.

It does seem very women friendly, and when I was there, the shop was being run by a (very attractive) woman, who was very helpful when I asked a few questions about some of the items on sale. I didn't ask, but she may be the owner of the shop, as it was so well lit and laid out, it seemed to have the feminine touch to the design, and I'm sure any ladies that visit would find it very welcoming.

All new DVD's were priced at £25, but all the others were at £20, and outside of London, you would be hard pressed to find somewhere that matches the quality and value of this shop.

Hours: 9am-9pm

Received a licence in December 2010. but the shop opened on 2nd September 2011.

  News, May 2014: Licence renewed

Huntingdonshire District Council's Licensing and Protection Applications Sub-Group approved the renewal of the licence after hearing there had been no objections during a consultation period.

  News, May 2013: Littered with morality

A licence renewal met with two trivial objections, one citing an item of litter from packaging of an adult product. The licence was approved with the condition that shops makes a litter patrol once a day.

  Review from Tim, December 2011: Impressive Range of Stock

I have just been and made a few purchases at the new Sawtry branch of Pulse & Cocktails. I was impressed with their range of stock, and as with previous P&C establishments, they have everything there that you could think off and in good quantities.

Staff were friendly and attentive when required, but didn't get too over the top, and no pressure selling. Probably due to the fact they were two women, they were knowledgeable and helpful.

The only issue I had was the prices of DVD's some other local sex shops are selling them at £10 P&C were £25 to £30, but they do offer a trade in.

  News September 2011: Opened

The shop opened on 2nd September 2011.

Bizarrely it has a condition on the licence stating that it is not to be called the Sawtry Sex Shop.

Scunthorpe's only sex shop Pulse and Cocktail took its case to the Civic Centre and the council agreed the sex shop's fees should be cut by £1,220 a year. Councillors agreed that the processing work involved did not warrant the present £3,620 a year fee for renewing the licence. So now the fee is £2,400

  Review from Pulse & Cocktails: Large Adult Superstore

This is a large adult superstore and is split into two departments.

This first department is Cocktails, which has an excellent range of sexy lingerie, costumes PVC, latex and hosiery in a variety of styles ranging from sizes 8-26. This department also has a huge selection of naughty novelties, games and hen and stag night products

Pulse is where the shopping adventure really begins! The sex toys department is huge with literally thousands of toys from every corner of the globe with many items available to touch in the 'switch on and try before you buy' display area. This store also has an exclusive range of erotic furniture.

This store has a fantastic adult film department with over 3,000 different titles covering every type and subject imaginable. This department also has a 42" plasma screen showing trailers of the latest films. The store also has an excellent, Gay DVD section with over 300 titles. The DVDs are very competitively priced and Pulse & Cocktails offers an excellent exchange system on all films. The store has a huge range of books and magazines, none of which are sealed and all at very competitive prices.

The store is located in the town centre on Trafford Street, Brigg Road opposite the bingo hall, 200 yards from Wickes.

Parking is available outside the store on Trafford Street or at Cross Street Car Park directly behind the store.

  Reader review: Chain Store
It's part of a chain with branches in and around Yorkshire, so I expect it to be typical of the chain in style and stocks. Good for parking, part of a row of shops north of Church Square, close to the market.

The front has the lingerie and fetishware, from almost respectable to outright kinky., and you zig-zag through to the back area for the hardcore: videos, magazines, a bewildering array of sex toys. The staff are helpful. When I was there, both female and fairly ordinary in looks. Seemed to have some practical experience of some of the toys on offer, based on the advise they gave.

Clean, modern, shop design and layout, comparable to High Street shops in general. More PVC and latex than the usual High Street clothes shop; none of the branding feel you get from one of the big clothing chains, but the front is very much a clothes shop.

The back half doesn't hide what it is, but again its the goods rather than the decoration which defines the shop. And the further from the front you get, the more extreme things seem to be. Bondage, it seems, still has limits, but there's stuff on display right at the back, and it's enough to get an idea of what some things might be like.

Certainly a place I didn't feel dreadfully uncomfortable visiting. But I think I'd feel embarrassed anywhere.

  From Stuart, June 2011: Traditional

Went into Playtime on Saturday and it is the best sex shop I've been in.

It has loads of DVD's from £9.99 a massive selection of toys, mags, lubes and tablets.

It is a traditional sex shop not a boutique so has a limited range of lingerie, but does stock rubber wear.

Well worth a visit ,and the fella behind the counter is really helpful, and not pushy at all.

  From Tone, May 2008: Tardis

Went into Playtime upon recommendation from a friend, this shop is like a tardis. If you're looking for a great selection of DVDs and a huge choice in sex toys this is the shop for youf

The bloke behind the counter is really helpful and not pushy. You are left alone to browse, also trailers are shown on two TV screens.

Probably one of the best shops outside of London.

  From Steve, Aug 2007: Compared to London

Went into a local shop for the first time outside of London. When I walked through the door at Playtime I was amazed by the size of the place it had a better selection of DVDs then some of the London shops.

Prices from £9.99 a great selection of toys at good prices and a very friendly tall fella behind the counter this shop is how sex shops should be!

  From Kevin, Feb 2007: Tardis

Went into Playtime last week for the fiorst time,its like a tardis, one of the best DVD collections I  have seen outside of London, Prices from £14.99 great selection of toys ,Lubes and dolls. Great help from the bloke behind the counter would recommend and give this shop 10 out of ten.
ps Loads of free parking

  From Craig

Playtime is a privately owned, licensed sex shop discreetly positioned with ample free parking right outside. It's a fairly large shop with a separate section to the back where you can happily browse the DVDs and vids at your leisure.

They stock a great range of recent R18 releases - Straight, Gay, Bi and T.S, and get new stock in on a regular basis. I noticed Evil Angel, Private, Ben Dover, Load, Cazzo and more. They tend not to over stock on one title, therefore offering a better selection to suit individual tastes.

DVDs were selling at 30 and they offer a part exchange service - I even noticed a For Sale bin.

The guy behind the counter was genuinely friendly, approachable and, despite not being part of a large chain, was happy to negotiate a good deal on several DVDs I purchased.

They also sell lingerie, glamour/fetish wear, magazines, novelties and toys.

The discreet location, atmosphere and choice make the drive onto the island well worth it. Oh and they have an equally well equipped, though smaller sister shop on Rainham High Street.

A good sized shop with a friendly and welcoming manageress.

Banded prices on R18 DVDs at £25, £20, £15, and £10, with all included in a  3 for the price of 2 offer with the cheapest being free.

There's still a few VHS tapes left at £5 (with 3 for the price of 2 offer).

Unlicensed shop opened in April 2009 stocking energetic and sexy lifestyle products for ladies

  From thestar.co.uk, April 2009: Nua Shop

Graham and Janine Barrass prefer to call their new business an erotic boutique not a sex shop. And you just might miss Nua because it doesn't look like you think a sex shop does: We want to get away from the blacked-out, seedy image. Shopping for adult toys has come a long way.

Indeed, the shop window could be a boutique, with nothing to frighten the horses in the window – just a blindfold, handcuffs and Bride to Be top hat. Although parents might have a little work to do explaining the spanking paddle to inquisitive children.

Staying in is the new going out. With more people entertaining themselves at home these days sales of lingerie are soaring, says Janine. Nua doesn't sell lingerie yet but it sells a lot of things that could go with it if you've a mind. There are massage oils and creams, games with names such Fetish! and Seven Deadly Sins, and all manner of curiously-shaped objects which buzz. Batteries are included at Nua.

  From the Mystery Shopper, May 2008: Curious but Pleasant

I was met by a charming couple who showed me around. The main room was fairly large and held lingerie and PVC outfits and lots of sex-clubesque designs. I was also shown into the leather and bondage themed side room.

After that we toured the toy room. The grey carpet and white walls left it feeling rather clinical and the small range of vibrators did little to fill the walls.

With no films, magazines or atmosphere, this was a rather curious, but pleasant shop.

Free parking right outside.

I One of the nicest located Privates I've been in, close by the striking English Bridge over the Severn, sadly this wasn't one of the nicest presented, at least externally. The door was distinctly grubby-looking, but the inside was pleasant enough. Classic blue carpets didn't leave it feeling dingy thanks to plenty of lights and a funny, talkative lady manager.

£30 R18 DVDs (with offers on multiples) and £25 ones on shelves marked 'Bargains'.

The displays, particularly toys on gondolas, had been artfully done.

Big display of mags, including fetish and TV/TS titles.

Lots of stock in limited space can overwhelm, but in this shop didn't, and even with a lack of music,I enjoyed its character and ambience. A solid all-rounder.

On its industrial estate site, there was no shortage of space. A very large store, which
avoided any of the 'aircraft hanger' feeling other super-sized sex shops have generated simply by having an excellent assortment of products.

R18 DVDs were £30 each and offers on multiple buys.

There was also a ‘New In' promotional section, looking good.

There were also boots, racks of fetishwear, lnsinuate lingerie,a big display of bondage gear and a long wall of toys.

A real top notch store which the owners and staff should be justly proud of.

  Review from Keith, My 2007: Well Priced

The store is well-located with two multi-storey car parks bang opposite.

Store is nicely laid out and well-stocked.

I was a little disconcerted to see a middle-aged lady behind the counter, but she was very helpful and did not make me feel at all uncomfortable; that said I was buying "ben wa" balls for my wife - might have been a bit more embarrassed if buying a doll or pussy!!

My purchase was very well-priced, even better than the lowest-priced similar item on their website. (I noted that the prices were the same in store and on their site, which I think in excellent). However costumes & lingerie did seem a tad expensive - there was on outfit on the "sale" rack for 25quid which I've just bought (admittedly on eBay, but as a new item) for a tenner including postage - had the store gear been say 15 or 16 that would seem fair.

I'd certainly shop there again, and would feel quite comfortable taking my wife into the store. Out of interest I walked past an Ann Summers after I went into Simply Pleasure, and the item I bought for 4.50, and for which other versions we're available at Simply Pleasure for 6.99 were a tenner in Ann Summers.

We will offer Melon Farmers 10% discount if they print off the shop listing on this page...

We do not as yet have a licence yet. Our council is strange and is holding up the process since there is a fully licenced sex shop all ready in South Shields.

However, we have a good range of toys, novelties and the like. We also sell costumes and uniforms from Wild Designs, Classified, Leg Avenue and other suppliers. We have a good range of Lingerie and Hosiery.

We run a very small shop, we like to think we are helpful and friendly, however, the best judge of that is our customers. We will try to help if your looking for something specific, although we feel that people are best left to look and ask for help if they need it.. and we do try to be friendly and will help and not try to over sell you...

There is loads of parking near by, we are on a main road, however, this shouldn't put people off, as you can't see inside the shop from the outside.

  Review from Peter, November 2010: A good way with customers

On entering the shop l was greeted by a man watching Sky Sports News. We talked about football and he told me he has been licensed for about 3 weeks.

OK it's not a huge shop, But as l look around and the shop had some good bargains. Video all at £10 clearance each. All the new DVD titles at £30.00 each all 2 for £50.00 and a good selection on one display again at £10 clearance (he liked these sticker) I brought two off this display Euro Domination 5 by Evil Empire and Orgazm Addictz by harmony two good films for a tenner each.

It's got everything you could want, great selection of R18 DVD's from £10.00- £30.00.I also brought a jelly butt plug again with a £10 clearance sticker on.

Spent 20 minutes in this shop and was never rushed The guy who runs it was very helpful and had a good way with customers.

The shop had a back door which exited on to a large free car park. (ideal for any customers that are shy and nervous) Spent £30.00 in this shop and left happy with the items l had brought

  Review from Pat, Feb 2007: Quart in a Pint Pot
I've been to this licensed shop a few times. It's usually staffed by a guy who's taken too many miserable pills, but I have been in there when the owner has been rearranging stock, & he is very friendly and helpful.

This shop has really squeezed a quart into a pint pot, with every available space, (bar the ceiling), crammed with toys, clothes, mags, videos and DVD's.

The choice of DVD and video is very good, but little is on face front display, as the lack of space means that they are all stacked like books on a shelf. They are situated at the back of the shop, and if there are more than three browsers in, it can get a bit claustrophobic.

The range of dildo's and vibrators is mind boggling, and there always seems to be some sort of offer on different items at the front of the store when I have visited.

Park right outside and give yourself plenty of time, as if you don't ask, it may take time to find what your looking for. £30 for a DVD, and £20 for video, with the usual multiple buy discounts and return discount deals.

  News, June 2011: Relocated

Southampton's Private Shop is now to be found at 16 Hanover Buildings in the city centre.

  Review

I have been to it twice, once in July and once yesterday. It is a licensed shop and is a fairly new conversion.

The range of goods, while somewhat limited compared to the large London shops, was more than adequate for any taste. The shop is next to the old C&A site in Southampton and is clean and friendly. Prices are fairly high at £40 per video/DVD, but there was an immediate £20 off if two were purchased and the guarantee of half price back if the videos were exchanged. There was a lack yesterday of, ironically, Private Videos which I was particularly after but I was able to buy the Gladiator series. The manager explained that he had been unable to obtain any just recently and he believed that this may be due to the financial difficulties Penthouse find themselves in. I was not previously aware that the Private Sex shops have no connection to the main Private Video label other than sharing the same name but he explained the management of the organization and its links to the Sunday Sport.

Overall it was a very pleasant trip and one I can happily recommend to others living within the area. I will certainly continue to use one of the big centres in London for larger buys when I am up there as there are significant cost savings but this is a very adequate alternative for a quick trip.

  Review from Pat, Feb 2007: Bright & Welcoming
Placed right next door to “Hidden Assets”, this licensed store had a major refit last year, and they extended out the back. This has much the same choice as the shop next door, but it has so much more room, and 90% of the DVD's and videos have been placed face forward so that the cover is fully visible.

There is plenty of toys and clothing, and the shop is clean, bright and welcoming, with the added bonus of someone behind the counter who is willing to chat and advise, and who looks pleased to see you.

£30 for a DVD, and £20 for video, with the usual multiple buy discounts and return discount deals.

  From the Melon Farming Discussions: Livening up the area

I have been into the new store at Southport and found it to be just the thing needed to liven up the area. Of course not everyone will enjoy seeing the store as they leave the train station but on the other hand it is the perfect location for people to drop in. I found the staff to be very friendly and made me and my friend feel comfortable with having a look around.

  Review from Anon, June 2008: Limited Range

Was greeted by a very friendly bubbly woman who asked if I needed any help shortly after I started looking about. (I declined so can't comment on how knowledge of the stock.)

Fairly standard sex shop bearing this name, one wall dedicated to DVDs, the opposite dedicated to vibrators and the like.

Not much in the way of clothing, and a limited range of magazines (all of which were sealed in plastic bags).

A little of the common boxed rubber skirts, opera gloves, masks etc, but nothing to interest the experienced fetishist.

  Review from Anon, June 2008: Best in Town

A pleasant, bright, reasonably sized, provincial sex shop, not at all sleazy, with lingerie in the window.

Quite a few novelty items for less bold shoppers. A good selection of tarty underwear and bedroom play costumes (though I'm not sure who some of them would be a turn-on for). Plenty of toys for the girls (including, I think a couple of cheap strap-ons). Could possibly do a little more when catering for the guys in terms of clothing or toys, though there was a variety of butt plugs available.

I didn't notice much fetish wear, other than a few cheap items.

Slightly surprised to see the small range of magazines include some titles you can find in pretty much any newsagent.

Excellent range of DVDs - the highlights being several anime titles (I've struggled to find R18 animated films up till now), they also have a small number of films they produce themselves and you can rent films from them too (£20 joining fee and then £5 for 7 days.) One screen was running with an example movie.

The woman serving was very friendly and chatty and gave me a loyalty card - buy 6 DVDs and get one for free.

Definitely the best sex shop in town.

  From Mystery Shopper, August 2011: Decent Selection of Toys

DVDs were mostly 25 but new releases were 30. A decent selection of toys but the shop was not at its best at the time of the visit.

  From Dave

Small and dingy. What few R18 videos they had were in a box on the counter ("I've more out back if you you want something else") I assume they are unlicenced and the small stock is "insurance" against a Visit? What they had were all 40 - when I said I was used to paying much less they magically came down to 25. I passed, thank you.

I was very impressed by Harmony. The guy behind the counter was unobtrusive - there was a bloke in browsing as I entered, he left after a bit without buying and the shop guy was quite OK with that, no 'sales patter', very good. I always like to buy something when I visit a sex shop - but I like it to be MY CHOICE to buy.

An average selection of vidoes and slightly fewer dvds - 24.95 being the going rate which you can't really argue with these days?

A light and airy shop - you can actually see outside!! - with a good atmosphere. As good a porn shop as I've visited in the UK. (oh, and they sell toys etc.)

Loads of R18s at £25 or £50 for 3. Otherwise full priced DVDs are £30 and bargain bin titles are £15 or £30 for 3.

A rather disjointed shopping experience

   From the Mystery Shopper, June 2006: Really Good

This shop is on the periphery of the shopping area and has perhaps the finest frontage of any Private shop I've seen.

Inside standards were high too, with a talkative and entertaining manageress, light wood floor below blue and white slat-wall holding loads of clearly arranged and priced stock.

Bright lighting illuminated DVDs (£40/1, £60/2, £100/4).

A broad display of mags (£10 for 4 hardcore) lead me to an extensive toy display.

With nice music on the stereo and a spacious yet intimate feel, I think this may be the best-presented Private I've visited.

 A really good adult store!
