Review from ETO's Mystery Shopper, October 2014: Quirk appeal.

A large choice of R18 DVDs, albeit with many old titles. Mostly at £25, with 3 for price of 2 deals, and 8 for £100. There were also DVDs at £20 with 3 for £40.

Somewhat lacklustre, this generously sized shop had quirk appeal.

The manager was happy and helpful .

The manageress couldn't have been more helpful.

DVDs were mostly £35 with a 3 for the price of 2 offer. Others were £30.

Not quite perfect but still mighty impressive.

Thanks to Emma: Very cheery

I've only been in once to look for fetish wear..

The Lady who (as far as I'm aware) owns the shop is very cheery, very helpful and a great laugh.

She even offered myself and my friend a cup of tea and biscuits.

Review from Suki, February 2014: Best by Far

I have now been in all the adult stores in Liverpool and know that Nice'n'Naughty are the best by far, and their customer service in exceptional compared to other stores in Liverpool,.

From Jay, March 2007: North South Divide

What an unbelievable difference walking into the new Nice 'n' Naughty in Colquitt Street Liverpool.

I went into the shop last week with my wife and could not believe the difference in this shop compared to other sex shops.

It is the first time I have been into a Nice 'n' Naughty shop and I have to say that if all other sex shops were up to this standard especially in the South of England the shops would be a pleasurable experience.

The range of rabbits, DVDs, lingerie, outfits, shoes and other goodies was excellent.

The staff were so friendly and helpful not the usual smelly tattooed oaf you get in the shops in the south.

It has given me and my wife a total new shopping experience, its just a shame that the shop is so far away from where we live.

From Nice 'n' Naughty: Boutique

Plans have been unveiled for the county's first ever fully licensed adult boutique in Liverpool, aimed specifically at women.

Fast-growing adult retailer Nice n Naughty is opening a plush city centre lingerie and accessory store where hanging baskets will adorn the exterior and an appealing shop window display will be the first in Liverpool for more than a quarter of a century after licensing chiefs lifted previous design restrictions on sex industry retailers.

The Colquitt Street premises will boast a special relaxation zone where customers can enjoy refreshments as part of a warm and welcoming shopping experience that also features a demonstration area, complete with giant plasma screen showcasing the latest erotic fashion wear.

Store Director Simon Prescott explained: This will be our 10th store across the north west of England and Wales, and it is the first in the country to be designed specifically for females and couples. The exterior design and general atmosphere will have a much softer female appeal and all the staff will be ladies apart from one male worker.

Sexy clothing, wigs, boots and shoes will be some of the many items available.

Offsite review, August 2017: Caters to every adult desire imaginable

What can you buy in a Liverpool sex shop? from

Review from Suki, February 2014: Distracted

Last week I was out and about shopping in Liverpool with a friend, we stumbled upon Private adult shop. Me and my friend couldn't resist going in for a nose round as neither of us had been in there before.

We walked through the door and the sales assistant who was on the phone made no eye contact. Browsing through the very small toy section and the assistant who was still on the phone was now shouting his whole conversation all over the shop. He was getting angry with the person on the other end of the phone he didn't even acknowledge that we were in the shop.

I have now been in all the adult stores in Liverpool and know that Nice'n'Naughty are the best by far, and their customer service in exceptional compared to other stores in Liverpool,.

Licensed UK Sex Shop. Previously Chameleon

From Philip, October 2005:

The last time I visited (early October), I found they had been taken over by Private. The shop had been closed for a month in August - September time but re-opened pending a refit.

I must admit my heart sank when I saw the change. However, the selection of DVDs was at least as good and the prices cheaper than they were before. The guy behind the counter was the area manager (Steve) who said the shop was going to have a facelift to make it 'a more pleasant place to shop'

He said they would stock around 600 more DVD titles and the prices would be even cheaper.

Maybe things are looking up for Private, normally a chain I avoid if possible.

From Philip:

This shop is in two rooms with more security cameras than staff. The front door opens on to a room displaying erotic lingerie and fetish wear; the back room has display racks of Videos, DVDs and magazines - the vast majority being hardcore.

There is also a limited display of toys in this room. However, the prices are superb - 25 for a DVD from a top US studio. They wanted only 35 for a 'Rambone' dildo which is amazing There are some gay and bi titles stocked.

I bought 2 DVDs. The discs are placed in the packs by the guy at the counter who was very obliging by sex shop standards. They do a 10 exchange, so each DVD could effectively cost 15. Their web site is pretty good too.

I notice this shop is also run by a woman; I guess you can tell. The good points with this shop are the prices and the display of goods. They don't really have room for a greater selection, but
it's good enough. I shall go back to this one, they deserve to do well.

Simply Pleasure


From Philip, February 2006: And the Choosing is Easy

The As a change I tried 'Simply Pleasure' in Loughborough, which happens to be only 200 yards from the Private shop.

I recall the lady who ran Chameleon saying 'You should see how much a DVD costs up the road!', implying they were expensive. Well, if they were, there's nothing like a little competition to lower the prices.

The shop suffers, as does its competitor, from the lack of decent parking. You're limited to finding a gap in the side streets; the shop in question is exactly on the apex of the junction of the main roads, so you have to find some parking in the roads behind the shop and walk a little.

Once you've made the effort and found somewhere to park, it's worth it. The shop has a small entrance partitioned off from the rest of the shop. Once in, it's brightly lit and all in one room. There is a great selection of DVDs (all major studios) and most tastes are catered for. They ask £30 per DVD but buy 2 and you get one free, so its 3 for £60 which is the price you can expect to pay in most shops now.

There seems to be a good selection of toys and mags, though they were not my main focus on my visit. They had a good selection of 'Score' DVDs, so if you're into big tits, this shop is for you. The guy behind the counter was friendly without being over the top.

I'll go again, it was well laid out and made choosing easy.

24 Stuart Street
LU1 2SL Previously Foxy Lady

Review from Pat, March 2007: Huge Stock of DVDs

As the last reviewer stated, there is a huge amount of adult DVD's on offer, covering just about everyone's taste, with £20 being the standard/maximum price. There were some cheaper ones that they were trying to get rid off, but they also seem to run a DVD rental service as well now, so you don't have to buy.

Friendly, funny guy serving too, which along with the good stock, makes you want to return to the store again.

Thanks to Jason, Dec 2006: Highly Recommended

The cheap adult dvd store has a massive selection of films well over a thousand, probably nearer to 1500.

I'm a gay guy and the selection in that department is about 200 titles. £20 to buy and a tenner to exchange, they also had old vids 3 for a fiver, mental.

The guys were very friendly and even gave me a free local magazine that had a cover price of £7. Highly recommend the place, and as Jim's review says, the guy offered me a exchange for £5 if it was back in 7 days

Thanks to Jim, Oct 2006: Cheap Adult DVD Centre

Foxy Lady has changed into the cheap adult DVD centre. much cheaper, DVDs start at 10 quid, then go to 15 and then all other titles are 20 including all new titles.

They don't stock clothing anymore and all DVD exchanges are a tenner. all videos cost ten quid to buy.

The staff has changed and sad to see the girl Gemma gone but I found they guy in there a laugh. He also told me that if I brought my DVD back within 7 days he would exchange it for a fiver.
