Pulse & Cocktails
M1 Junction 33
West Bawtry Road
Canklow Meadows Industrial Estate
News, May 2018: Expansion
The council has approved plans to add a warehouse extension to the site. It was also reported:
With 7,000 sq ft of retail space and selling 8,000 different
products, the Rotherham branch was reported to be the biggest sex shop in Europe when it opened, and the second biggest in the world after the Hustler store in California.
Review from Ian, August 2014: Massive
Situated close to Junction 33 of the M1 Motorway, this store is very easy to find.
Located on industrial estate, it has its own big car park which is discreet, and if your feeling rather nervous,
don't worry at all.
The store is massive and split into two halves. There are two entrances for a huge clothing department and through to a massive DVD/Sex Toy Section.
There are literally more Porn DVDs in
this store than any other store in Europe. All DVDs are arranged by genre and each genre has a massive choice. The shop even has a large selection of gay and transsexual movies for those that like that genre.
Staff are friendly
and welcoming, and offer advice if needed but after initial hello leave you to browse this superstore of porn without distraction.
As with all Pulse and Cocktail Stores, movies are priced a bit more expensively than other places.
However they do offer multi-buy deals and do have a discount movie selection.
This shop is an absolute must for lovers of porn, either men, woman or couples. You would find it impossible not to find what you are looking for here.
A Must Visit!
From Pulse & Cocktails, May 2007: Europe's Largest
This flagship store in Rotherham is the largest sexy superstore in Europe and made the BBC News upon its opening. This
gigantic superstore is made up of two exciting departments.
The first department is ‘Cocktails', which has an amazing range of sexy clothing and lingerie of both conventional wear and fetish wear including PVC, latex and leather. The store also boasts
the largest selection of uniforms with over 20 different sexy dressing up outfits on display. The diversity at this store is massive, stocking a very comprehensive range of sizes from 8-26. This store also has a full range of wigs, shoes and a fantastic
selection of hosiery.
Cocktails also has an excellent choice of naughty novelties and games as well as an excellent range of hen and stag night products.
Pulse is where the shopping adventure really begins and is situated on the ground floor!
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.

Thanks to Tim: Supermarket Like
In Sheffield and Rotherham there are a couple of pretty large shops called Pulse & Cocktails. These are quite supermarket-like in layout and atmosphere - very
bright and airy and the staff are friendly and fairly non-intrusive. The prices are a bit steep I think (£30 for an R18 video or 2 for £50), but they do have preview facilities and an exchange facility where you can swap any tape for
£10 within (I think) 2 weeks.
They've got a good selection of magazines too, but I wasn't totally impressed by them all being bagged up (no preview copies) even though there are signs saying that if you want anything opened then just ask.
