An investigation is underway after a motorbike was allegedly set alight, causing damage to a controversial sex shop in Dublin.
The blaze broke out on James' St outside Sweet Sensations which had previously come under fire for a large picture in the window of a woman posing in red lingerie. Last October around 10-15 people demonstrated outside the shop which has been open
for over twenty years.
The front of the shop, which is made of wood, was damaged during the incident.
Exeter' Private Shop has closed down after trading for 30 years.
The store manager Steve, who has worked at the adult shop for 31 years said he is sad to see the shop close and that it's the end of an era.
Its closure means that Simply Pleasure on Sidwell Street is the last remaining sex shop in the city.
Meanwhile in Bristol, the gay sex shop chain Prowler has opened a store inside Simply Pleasure sex shop . Prowler specialises in gay sex toys, underwear, clothing and accessories, as well as DVDs, books and calendars.
The Bristol branch has opened on the top floor of general sex shop Simply Pleasure on Bond Street. It is being managed by former customer Cameron Reid, who said he was inspired to help bring the Prowler brand to Bristol after realising a huge
proportion of Simply Pleasure was just unused, wasted space.
