51 Crown Street Review from Claude, April 2006: Throwback

I visited Temptations in Halifax a week ago. I was enticed into the shop with the promise of 1/2 price DVDs, Upon entering I found a throwback to the 70's! This dark and moody shop stocked DVDs and videos that covered EVERY topic you could imagine at a price of £40 each or 3 for a £100. There were about 3000 titles to choose from.

The guy behind the counter wasn't a modern shop keeper but a surly guy who offered me a Bully Boy Vibrator for £45 - no discount but he'd give me Free Batteries! I asked about the 50% discount and he told me the prices had been cut in half already.

I found a very strong German film and purchased it. Not a couple friendly adult outlet, just a seedy sex shop full of porn!

This is a good sized, one-stop shop in Hitchin and offers a very relaxed shopping environment with excellent advice available from the shop manager.

Review from Pulse & Cocktails: One of UK's Largest

This massive superstore 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, gifts, 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.

The store has a separate film department, which is DVD heaven with over 3,000 XXX DVDS. The DVDs are very competitively priced and Pulse & Cocktails offers an excellent exchange system on all films. There is also an excellent selection of XXX books and magazines that are unsealed and very competitively priced..

If you are after the ultimate sex shop adventure then this massive store in Hull is the one for you. This is an absolutely amazing store and can only be described as an erotic theme park; many customers browse for over an hour and still only see a small amount of the thrilling products on offer.

The store is very easy to find it is the large yellow building on the right hand side, 500 yards further along from Mount Pleasant Retail Park.

From ETO's Mystery Shopper, February 2017: Strong offering

This shop scores highly for a great manageress.

Most R18 DVD's were 25 each or 3 for 50.

A very strong offering.

Review from Al, May 2009: Best in Hull

This is in my opinion the best adult shop in Hull. It is situated directly opposite the train and bus station and has the best prices.

The best thing about this shop is that the woman who runs it REALLY knows what she is doing...sadly she employs a woman who often has trouble finding the DVDs for the empty case you've chosen, and an irritating man who asks if you're alright every 2 minutes without fail which gets very annoying. The owner is extremely friendly though, you can ask her anything and she will not embarrass you and make sure you know that she's heard much worse!

The amount of toys is quite small compared to Pulse & Cocktails, but they are generally far cheaper and the buy 2 toys, get 1 half price deal is hard to beat.

There are also fantastic deals on pre-owned DVDs... £15 per dvd or 3 for £30 on most used DVDs and £10 per DVD or 3 for £25 on the others.

I would definitely recommend all Hull residents who are interested in this sort of thing visit it before anywhere else!
