A large independent store.

There are magazines for £10 with a 3 for 2 multi-buy offer.

DVDs are £25, £20 & £15, also with a 3 for 2 offer.

Thoroughly OK.

Review from Ian, July 2014: Surprisingly big


Very Easy to find right at the top end of Copley Road. There is no car park for this shop but there is plenty of parking spaces on the street. There are actually two Sex Shops on this road. The private shop is located at bottom of street. So one could say they are in direct competition


Was surprised just how big the shop was. Loads of products for sale

  • Sex Toys (Male & Female)

  • Clothing

  • Magazines

  • Lubricants

Very large amount of R18 DVD's for sale. Shop is well presented with DVD's. You're £ gonna have to be incredibly picky not to find a movie that suits you

DVD's start a discount price of £5 for older DVD's and good offers on multiple buys


Male member of staff greeted me as I walked in and passed the time of day.

Also asked if I needed any help and if any questions just ask him

Not pushy in anyway and just let customers browse. Felt like there was no pressure to buy

I Would recommend this store for anyone local to the area or worth a drive

Review from Ian, August 2011: Looking Great

I found myself in Doncaster the other day in Copley road and found that the old Hot Planet sex shop located at number 35/37 was now called The Naughty

I went inside and found a great stocked licensed sex shop. It had loads of R18 DVDs from £5 upwards and loads of offers on all films. Admittedly, the cheaper films were older titles but they also stocked all the latest titles at £25 each, 3 for £50 or 7 for £100 all with half price exchange.

They also had loads of clothing and shoes at the lowest prices I have encountered. The adult toy selection was huge and all priced the same as on their website.

Overall, I found the staff knowledgeable and non-pushy. The shop looks great and I will be going back again soon, only this time I'm taking the wife with me!



Private Shop

15 Coply Road

Mon-Sat: 10am-6pm (Fri 8pm)

Licensed shop. Listing checked in May 2019.

Review from ETO's Mystery Shopper, August 2016: Busy

A compact shop with DVDs at £25 and £20 with a 3 for 2 offer. There are also 3 for £30 DVDs.

The shop has a great. chatty, well informed manageress. It is busy too, a good sign.

Review from Ian, July 2014: Small and friendly


This shop is easy to find. Its on left hand side at bottom of Copley Road. Never been to Doncaster before but sat nav took me straight there.


Compared to Naughty Company, further up the road, this shop is on the small side.

It offers sex toys, clothing, magazines and R18 DVD's. The movies are in genre order but it's not really an extensive range. There's a mix of new and old movies.

They have offers for bulk buying movies and do a good returns policy with money off your next purchase.


A female member of staff greeted me with a hello and asked if I was looking for anything in particular. I looked around the store without feeling pressured in anyway. She answered any questions I had. Overall very friendly, her porn knowledge wasn't the best, but she was polite

I would have to say, if you're planning on visiting a Sex Shop in Doncaster, I would suggest you visit the Naughty Company, just for the more choice element.

Most DVDs are priced 40-45 euros and there is a multi-buy offer of 4 for 3.

An upmarket store on an upmarket street.

From Basic Instincts July 2007: Adult Service

We have moved into the old part of Dublin called Temple Bar right in the City centre. In a superbly restored early Georgian building we are located at 8, Eustace Street, Temple Bar.

Our shop is twice as large as our previous one and carry a superb range of ‘Fetish' gear from around the world.

We are 50/50 straight/gay clientele . We have a superb cinema and dvd cabins for personal entertainment in the basement. We can offer luxury apartment rental overhead with 4 suite apartments on offer along with private parking.

We at Basic Instincts provide a complete ‘Adult' service to everybody.

From the Mystery Shopper, February 2006: Quite impressed

It's a store with a big gay following but I found broad appeal product too. In the back room were gay titles on one wall and straight DVDs on the other, mostly around 60 Euro.

I felt relaxed as I admired lots of strap-ons in leather with bright chrome. Bondage equipment made up one wall and there was a bargain bin of discontinued lines.

Quite impressed.

Beyond dolls I found the DVDs, including titles you couldn't buy in the UK for €60, and more mainstream product for €50, all with a 50% exchange option.

News November 2010: Unclassified DVDs

The shop assistant in charge of the shop at the time of a police raid was convicted for selling unclassified videos.

From the Mystery Shopper, February 2006: First Class Window

This was my favourite find in Dublin, not least thanks to a first class window display.

It's an exotic adult boutique style store which got bigger as I discovered room after room. The first was a fashion and fetishwear space. The next had bronze bunny-girls with toys and erotic books. The next room with more clothes, medical goodies and glass dildos led to a piercing studio out back and a DVD room. The range of DVDs stretched from €35 to €80.

I'd like to give this shop 5 stars, but I just can't shake the memory of the rather weighty pricing.

From Jad:

It has a large selection of bondage, fetish wear, toys, mags vids and dvds. It is a fun friendly shop with a less sterile and more open approach to sex shopping, no bell for entry no white walls! Stocks many things most other Dublin sex shops lack and has a brilliant staff. It also has a piercing and tattoo parlour. I love this shop and definitely think it one of the best in Dublin.

News October 2013: Council zoning excludes sex shops

There were worries for the shop as Central Bedfordshire Council opened a public consultation on a nil policy on adult businesses. In the end the council adopted a morality zone ban on table dancing clubs and sex cinemas but sex shops were excluded from zoning restrictions.

From Philip:

I don't know whether they're licensed or not.

They have a massive range of toys and all sorts of lingerie and fetish wear. The proprietor is a very obliging lady, very unlike some of the 'dodgy geezer' types in other shops. The atmosphere of the shop is more like a boutique, is quite compact and on two floors. The ground floor has a back room displaying magazines, though I saw no hardcore on display.

The DVDs and Videos are literally from 'under the counter'. They have both first and second-hand DVDs at either 50 or 45 each - expensive to say the least. But they do have a half-price exchange policy which I've used without quibble. The selection was rather limited and it was difficult to browse properly when faced with a pile of titles unsorted in any way. So, the good point was the service and the range of clothes and toys, the bad points are the prices and the display of the DVDs. I also found their web-site rather poor.
