Tel: 01685 886080


  From ETO's Mystery Shopper, November 2013: Quirky

R18 DVDs were priced at £20 with a 3 for the price of 2 offer.

An indie shop that is unique in a nice way

  From ETO's Mystery Shopper, October 2011: Relaxed and Smiley

A friendly compact shop that, while not perfect, certainly left me feeling relaxed and smiley.

R18 DVDs were priced at £20-25 but with no obvious sign of deals.

  From the shop, June 2006: A Modern Look
Lush Lingerie is the first licensed sex shop in the district! Achieved in November 2005 by two females! The shop is situated by the main bus stop.

Wooden floors and beech slatboards give the shop a modern look. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Loads of stock ranging from adult toys, R18 DVD's, novelties, erotic books and magazines to lingerie, clubwear and fancy dress! Stock is very competitive with DVD's ranging from £20 - £40.

Although the shop advertises 8pm closing, on a Saturday night it closed up at 7:45pm. I arrived just as the shop was closing.  I couldn't even get a bottle of poppers and put the money in the till the next day!

  News from Patrice Adult Store, November 2010: Licensed

Patrice Adult Store in Diamond Street Aberdeen has now a full sex shop licence after Aberdeen City Council decided to grant the application under delegated powers, which means the application did not even require to come before the Licensing Committee.

Owner Patrick Wight said, It's great news for the north east, now there's more choice for people of all genders to explore their sexuality. All credit must go to the council, they have had their critics of late but they are a modern thinking local authority and this decision proves it.'

  News September 2010: New Store

A north-east entertainer has revealed plans to open a sex shop in Aberdeen.

Patrick Wight, who goes by the stage name Patrice, has applied for a licence to run the adult store in Diamond Street in the city centre.

The comedian said he intended to sell similar products to those of the high-street chain, Ann Summers, until Aberdeen City Council's licensing committee decides on his application for a sex shop licence in November. If the sex shop licence is granted the business will be open from 10.30am to 9pm seven days a week.


517 George Street
AB25 3YB

Tel: 01224 634433

  Review from Jim, December 2009: No Competition
I have been all over the world, and this shop is the WORST sex shop I have ever seen. The staff don't smile and don't seem to give a toss (excuse the pun) about customer service.

And check this, 6pm they close on a Saturday Night and claim they offer a service Its time Aberdeen had another Licensed Sex Shop, and I think I would be the man to run it and offer a real service to the people of Aberdeen Anyone interested, email me,

  From a reader:
This is the first licensed sex shop in Aberdeen, and I must say, it is a very impressive business. The shop is discretely located in the busy George street area of Aberdeen, and is bright and clean. The staff are extremely helpful and the range of items on sale is large and impressive. Here one can legally buy R18 videos and DVDs, first generation, not copies. The prices are very reasonable and you can get very good deals. All videos and DVDs are exchangeable. New titles are regularly updated. I certainly recommend QT to anyone looking for first class adult material.

The Private Shop

266B High Street
GU12 4LT


 From ETO's Mystery Shopper, September 2011: DVD Prices

DVDs were mostly £30 with no obvious deals

 Thanks to John

The Private Shop is on the outskirts of the town centre and staffed when I went in there by a lady, the manager wasn't there at the time. There's a whole room for DVDs/videos and some more in the main room too and you're welcome to browse at your leisure, I was encouraged to check them out and mostly at £40, or £60 for 2.

A table was set out at one end of main room with leaflets and flyers for pole-dance-tutors, events and sex-related services. Quite a bit of bondage gear, fair selection of toys (I was taken with the good selection of anal love balls) and there were some leather (I presume) boots on display in various colours. A few of the outfits are on display on mannequin bodies  and there was a TV on a normal channel ( so it was quite relaxing - don't know if that was ever used for showing any of their videos.

Each shop in the Xanadu chain has a vast range of lingerie and a good selection of Toys.

None of the Xanadu Shops is licenced and therefore do not sell R18 films, this may change in the future,

There will be something for everyone. Casmir is very elegant and alluring and Chilirose is sexy with attitude.

It won't offend anyone. There won't be any sex toys on show.

We need to make it clear, there will be a difference between the shops.

There won't be anything you don't see in Debenhams. Just beautiful lingerie,

  Review from Pat, Feb 2007: Behind Bars

I went to this shop purely because of the write up on this site, and I have to agree with the comments already submitted.

All the DVD's are upstairs and priced at £25, (though they are not in defined category area's and are scattered randomly).

The downstairs has an enormous amount of toys and clothing; there is even a dungeon area, that they have given appropriate lighting to, and set behind ‘bars', to give the right atmosphere to those who wish to buy that sort of gear.

The lady serving was none pushy, friendly, and had a very good sense of humour, really putting me at my ease. When I'm back in the area, I will definitely be revisiting this shop.

  Reader review, September 2006: Good Advice

Can only echo what's already been written but have to comment on just how helpful, knowledgeable and approachable the owners are.

I went to the shop in Sep 06 with my girlfriend looking to buy some toys. The male owner gave the most comprehensive run down of lubes possible and got us to try each to see their effects and then showed us around the toys and let us try out what we wanted - no not like that!

When it was obvious that minds hadn't been made up he even called his wife to see what she advised and she came back to the shop to give her 'expert' opinion.

Purchases successfully bought we went home to enjoy and I can only say - very good advice!

I'd happily recommend this shop to anyone wanting a relaxed and non intimidating environment to explore the fun side of life. Excellent way to shop, well done and thanks.

  Reader review: Industry View

As someone working in the industry I see a rather large selection of shops of varying quality both licensed and unlicensed across the UK and have to admit that this new store in a quiet industrial estate with ample parking is one of the best and is now fully licensed to sell R18 DVDs.

This sex superstore has vast and clearly marked sections for lingerie, toys, bdsm etc.

There are both male and female staff who are extremely friendly and helpful, the shop is bright and fresh with plenty of room to browse and where you don't feel at all under pressure. The prices are lower than average but you don't feel that quality has been sacrificed for price.

This is the way all adult stores should be!

  Review June 2006

I was in bodystyle at the weekend it has been a while since I was in. Waaaaawooo what a difference its got vibro to sexy underwear. Good for them its a lovely friendly shop.

  Reader Review

I have been in a few sex shops up and down the country which I have found most very dark and dinghy. How refreshing, Bodystyle is very bright and modern excellent range of lingerie and of all the toys in a very good location at the top of the town. The lady behind the counter is very helpful and pleasant to chat to, all ages where coming and going when I was in and would certainly recommend this shop highly.
