Review from Ian, July 2014: Lacking a discreet entrance
Situated on a very busy road that leads to and away from the city centre. Very busy with traffic and the store has no off road or car park so it was a matter of trying to park along the road. The Shop is surrounded by takeaways and other shops.
Managed to park quite a way up the road and walked to the shop
The entrance is located at the front facing the road and I got numerous looks from car drivers who were stationary due to volume of traffic
Rather embarrassing to say the least.
The store is small with the usual range of clothing, sex toys, magazines and R18 Movies as available in most Private Shops
Maybe it was just the walk down passed the line of dirty looks from the car drivers but I just didn't feel comfortable in this store had an atmosphere I cant explain really.
The staff member passed the time of day and left me to have a look around.
Seemed to feel uncomfortable.
I was thinking about the leaving the store and walking out onto the busy main road carrying a DVD and could hear the blasting of horns and shouts coming from car drivers in my head
Felt even more uncomfortable leaving the store and walking back.
The location for this store really needs some sort of car park or rear entrance as Could not see this location making the start of the whole experience a good one.
Would advise if your anyway little shy about visiting sex shop visit another one.

Review from Malcolm, September 2012: Seeking High Definition
I visited a shop called Angels of Walsall requesting High Definition (HD) videos only. I was told most DVD'S are HD. The fella in there pointed to whole racks of them and said they are all HD DVD's. Of course they weren't....
There was in fact one rack with some HD videos priced at £ 30 each, £ 70 for 3. Quite ridiculous when you consider what the private shops charge. So for me, Angels of
Walsall was deceptive about the nature of their products and overcharge by a mile and a half.
Review from Gerry, September 2011: 5500 Adult DVDs
Still an excellent shop which now claims to have 5500 adult DVDs in stock.
I can well believe it. The price of 8 for £ 100 is available, and there is also a value bucket of older DVDs.
The cinema was doing good business yesterday as well.
Some of their website clothing offers are extremely good value
News from Gerry, February 2011: R18 Cinema
I visited Angels and Sinners again yesterday . Still an excellent shop as per my past comments.
However they have now added an adult cinema at the back of the shop showing R18 films. The cinema is rather different to the Odeon (apart from the films it shows) in that the seating is all comfortable leather sofas, well spread out. Very nice
Shortly the shop will be changing its name to Angels of Walsall to avoid confusion with the wholesaler using the A&S name in Birmingham
Review from Gerry, Oct 2009: Superb shop
Superb shop on small trading estate, they have taken over two units.
As you enter shop, the left hand unit is full of undies, toys, lotions, etc whist right hand unit is crammed with great selection of DVDs. Bulk price of 8 for £100 is competitive.
From Angels, Dec 2006
We are a large friendly business, catering for the discerning customer requiring, top quality sex aids, toys, lingerie, lotions and potions, videos, DVD's and magazines. Visit or buy on line. Always competitive prices.

News from Alan February 2013: Closing
The Walsall Private Shop has either closed or is about to do so. The shop is being taken over by Fletcher's cakes from just up the road. Seems like anyone looking for a mucky film will get an eclair instead.
Re the Warrington Nice 'n' Naughty store. I called in there last week to buy some lingerie.
I had no idea what to buy, and was most grateful for the friendly and helpful advice of the staff in store. They were really friendly, impartial and non - judgemental. They were absolutely fabulous, and I will have no doubt I will be visiting the
store again soon.
In July 2008, the Warrington Nice 'n' Naughty shop will be the first adult retail store short listed to win an “Award for Business” at a glittering gala in Warrington, Cheshire. Nice n Naughty have been short listed to the final 2 for the “Buisness
of the Year” Award out of approximately 1000 businesses in the catchment area.
Nice n Naughty had to meet a stringent criteria, which included providing quality throughout the organisation's structure, strong communications, and good employee/employer relations; all of which were highlighted when Nice n Naughty successfully
retained their ‘Investors In People' Status at their recent re-assessment earlier this year.
We have opened a shop in Warrington, Cheshire which is one of the largest shops in Europe with a floor space of nearly 4000 square feet. It has to be the largest in the UK. We have a massive range of clothing and adult products. Well worth a visit.
Now stocking over 1500 DVD/VHS. Friendly staff, browsers welcome.
It was granted a sex shop license on July 8th 2003.
On visiting Watford's only licensed sexshop (featured on Channel 5's Gender Swap with Rebbecca Loos) I was pleasantly surprised!
The shop is stocked from top to bottom with an amazing variety of toys.. Rampant Rabbits take pride of place with lots of different colours, sizes and designs! I would hazard a guess that there are at least 150 different types of
vibrators for women alone, which pleased my wife!
Then for me they had a large variety of pumps and vaginas! That's not to mention the whole top shelf surrounding the shop being home for realistic dolls of all sizes! The Manageress behind the counter was very friendly and able to give
us great advice about everything we asked her! she was very confident and not at all intimidated by my query of how a penis enlarger worked! As well as all this they have a wide selection of lingerie, bondage equipment and DVD's and VHS all well
I was really pleased with my visit and between myself and the manageress we managed to persuade my wife to give the 'Love Swing' a whirl which she know tells all her friends about!!!
We cant wait to go again!
Firstly, the shop seems to have metamorphosed from Harmony. It's now called 'Simply Pleasure'. I don't know whether or not this represents a change of ownership, though I suspect that it might.
It was a major disappointment. As a single man visiting the shop, I felt unwelcome. It seems to me that it caters almost solely to women - plently of clothing and toys for them, but nothing (apart from the videos/DVDs at the back) for men. There was
one man staffing the shop when I visited. Whilst he was quite pleasant, he appeared not to have a clue what he was doing, and was a long way from being helpful to me. I won't bother to go there again.
My wife & I visited the shop. It is brand new shop front with a very tasteful window display of erotic lingerie, Inside just about every toy & gadget you could wish for are on display. A collection of whips, floggers &
bondage gear if that floats your boat!. A very good selection of lingerie, pvc silky gear, erotic games.
A huge range of R18 rated dvds & videos the videos were £30 each which I thought was good value. There was one girl on the counter who was very friendly and answered all our questions. The shop has a very good atmosphere for
couples or singles. We give the shop ten out of ten, a breath of fresh air in the world of sex shops! There is a security camera which covers the whole shop. The range of Rabbit vibrators every shape & size to please any girl!! We look forward to
our next visit

Fully licensed shop opened on May 8th 2007. Now closed
Review from Malcolm, September 2012: Seeking High Definition
I visited the Private shop in West Bromwich and received accurate information and good deals.
I took one disc back because the content was poor and even though I had time to have watched it, they took it back and I was allowed to swap it for another with no trade in charge made.
On another occasion I tuned down one of their free magazines while buying 3 videos for £ 50 and was told I could choose another HD DVD at no extra charge.....(4 for £
50 that day). Excellent service. I highly recommend the West Bromwich store.
I have also been offered, when they have them, Blu-ray's for the same price as 3 for £ 50 normal HD videos.
Harmony is a clean bright, newly licensed shop with a large selection of stock in all areas, R18 videos, DVD's, sex toys & sex aids, clothing, lingerie and a selection of leather clothing etc..
We always have about 300 titles of R18 films in stock. All at great prices (as low as 20) and a part exchange facility. Although most titles are hetero, we do have a selection of Gay, Lesbian & T.S. films.
In excess of 100 different vibrators & dildos always in stock. Plus a full range of artificial vaginas and masturbating units and dolls. We also stock a range of vacuum pumps and other erection aids including various creams. Our staff are fully
trained in the usefulness of all items we stock as well as being trained in how to make the customer feel at ease in what may be an embarrassing situation for them. Once again all prices are competitive.
We carry a large range of clothing and lingerie including nurse & maids outfits etc. Once again staff are trained in converting sizes, as many people know only one type of sizing. We always stock a range of top quality leather clothing:
Bodies, Basques, Bikinis etc..Further to this a range of handcuffs and restraints made from top grade Hide. Plus harnesses, gags, masks, hoods and Kat o Nine Tails. As always prices are competitive.
One more thing, whilst looking at your site I saw some customers' comments relating to them being intimidated in certain shops. Sadly there are still a few companies entrenched in that old fashioned style. However I can assure you not so in Harmony,
our staff are fully trained in all areas of our business, with a very large emphasis on customer satisfaction. To run a successful business you need regular and repeat trade, to achieve this you must
a) Give good value for money
b) Have a great selection of stock
c) Keep the customer satisfied
We try our very best to achieve all of these criteria.
Our staff are repeatedly told “ It's the customers who pay our wages”

News, September 2014: A Sign of the times
The shop successfully applied to get the annual licence on his Erotica Belle premises in Ranelagh Road renewed and for permission to open on all Bank Holidays except Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.
However the council sprung an objection to arge advertising boards on the shop exterior and told the shop remove them because it was against licence conditions, albeit those never mentioned prior to the licence application meeting. The shop's has
asked the council to think again about the advertising ban.
Review from ETO's Mystery Shopper, September 2012: Highly Recommended
A good selection of DVD mostly at £25 with a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price offer. There are also titles available in a Buy 1 Get 2 Free offer. There's a £5-10 bargain selection too.
A very friendly manageress made for a high recommendation from the Mystery Shopper.
News September 2011: Under New Management
New owners of the Weymouth's licensed sex shop in Ranelagh Road are making several fundamental changes.
The shop was renamed in July 2011 from Discretion to Erotica Belle. And in a change of direction the new owner, Jonathan Spencer, has been given council permission to display lingerie in the shop window.
Spencer said that it an effort to move his business on from what he described as the dirty mac brigade reputation of sex shops.
Weymouth Council's Licensing Committee one letter of objection, 18 letters of support and a petition signed by around 120 people in favour of the move to change the building's appearance.
Spencer said: I've changed the products in the shop so they are less adult. I want to go more down the lingerie route and the gift route.
Opened on the 10th March 2003 with a full stock of every R18 VHS/DVD title available (Over 1500 titles and new releases arriving weekly) catering for all tastes. This store was awarded 5 Stars by the ETO mystery shopper in August 2011, praising the

A disappointing range at an unexciting store.

News December 2016: Foxy Lady Dance Bar
A lap dancing club is set to open next to an adult cinema in Bilston in the new year -- if they can get the girls.The opening of Foxy Lady's Dance Bar has been delayed because they cannot recruit the staff.
The new bar, which features three poles, a stage, several booths and a bar set in the backdrop of darkness, is due to open in mid to late January.
It will be open from 12pm to 4am.
News April 2014: Licence renewal
The Foxy is a licensed adult cinema and sex shop. The owner hopes to open a dance bar at the end of June. The owner said:
We take strict control of the property. The licensing people have been down and double checked and there has been no problem.
The business was awarded a Sexual Entertainment Venue licence in 2012, which is when the licences were introduced by the Government. Until then it met the legal requirement for the time.
The sex shop sells toys and DVDs. Opening hours are 11am to 11pm, seven days a week. The owner said the busiest times were in the evenings and on weekends. To go in it will set you back between £5 and £8, depending on the time of day.
The licence is now up for annual renewal by planning bosses at Wolverhampton City Council and the renewal will be subject to a public consultation.
My main object was to visit the cinema but whilst waiting for the woman behind the counter to serve me I browsed around the shop. I found a vast selection of video's and dvd's which were priced individually or grouped
at three for 100.00 pounds, which seemed a little expensive compared to internet prices, but it does avoid the embarrassment of having delivered to your home, the range would cater for most peoples tastes.
The shop had a range of toys which was not huge, I found the stock to be mostly video's and dvds. Where this establishment excels itself is the staff, the woman behind the counter was pleasant and helpful, she pointed out where the entrances to each
of the two cinema screens were and where the toilets were situated and that refreshments were available. Upon leaving a gentleman was behind the counter and he said goodbye and have a safe journey.
All in all a very friendly establishment.

From Fantasy House, October 2009: Well received
The shop was opened officially about 2 months ago and it is receiving a very favourable response from all whom have ventured in it.
We are aiming to encourage females and couples along with the steady male DVD buyers offering a large range of up market lingerie, footwear and toys as well as a vast selection of R18 DVD's and imported magazines in bright pleasant surroundings.
So far everything we are doing is being well received.
