Review from Ian, July 2014: Lacking a discreet entrance
Situated on a very busy road that leads to and away
from the city centre. Very busy with traffic and the store has no off
road or car park so it was a matter of trying to park along the road.
The Shop is surrounded by takeaways and other shops. Managed to park
quite a way up the road and walked to the shop
The entrance is located at the front facing the road
and I got numerous looks from car drivers who were stationary due to
volume of traffic
Rather embarrassing to say the least.
The store is small with the usual range of clothing,
sex toys, magazines and R18 Movies as available in most Private Shops
Maybe it was just the walk down passed the line of
dirty looks from the car drivers but I just didn't feel comfortable in
this store had an atmosphere I cant explain really.
The staff member passed the time of day and left me
to have a look around.
Seemed to feel uncomfortable.
I was thinking about the leaving the store and
walking out onto the busy main road carrying a DVD and could hear the
blasting of horns and shouts coming from car drivers in my head
Felt even more uncomfortable leaving the store and
The location for this store really needs some sort
of car park or rear entrance as Could not see this location making the
start of the whole experience a good one.
Would advise if your anyway little shy about
visiting sex shop visit another one.

Review from Malcolm, September 2012: Seeking
I visited a shop called Angels of Walsall requesting
High Definition (HD) videos only. I was told most DVD'S are HD. The
fella in there pointed to whole racks of them and said they are all HD
DVD's. Of course they weren't....
There was in fact one rack with some HD videos
priced at £30 each,
£70 for 3. Quite ridiculous when you
consider what the private shops charge. So for me, Angels of Walsall was
deceptive about the nature of their products and overcharge by a mile
and a half.
Review from Gerry, September 2011: 5500
Still an excellent shop which now claims to have
5500 adult DVDs in stock.
I can well believe it. The price of 8 for
£100 is available, and there is also
a value bucket of older DVDs.
The cinema was doing good business yesterday as
Some of their website clothing offers are
extremely good value
News from Gerry, February 2011: R18
I visited Angels and Sinners again yesterday . Still an excellent shop
as per my past comments.
Review from Gerry, Oct 2009:
However they have now added an adult cinema at the back of the shop
showing R18 films. The cinema is rather different to the Odeon (apart
from the films it shows) in that the seating is all comfortable leather
sofas, well spread out. Very nice indeed.
Shortly the shop will be changing its name to Angels of Walsall to
avoid confusion with the wholesaler using the A&S name in Birmingham
Superb shop on small trading estate, they have taken over two units.
As you enter shop, the left hand unit is full of undies, toys, lotions,
etc whist right hand unit is crammed with great selection of DVDs. Bulk
price of 8 for £100 is competitive.

large friendly business, catering for the discerning customer requiring, top
quality sex aids, toys, lingerie, lotions and potions, videos, DVD's and
magazines. Visit or buy on line. Always competitive prices.

Re the Warrington Nice 'n' Naughty store. I called in there last week to buy
I had no idea what to buy, and was most grateful for the friendly and
helpful advice of the staff in store. They were really friendly, impartial
and non - judgemental. They were absolutely fabulous, and I will have no
doubt I will be visiting the store again soon.
It was a most pleasurable shopping experience....
'n' Naughty, July 2008: Nice
In July 2008, the Warrington Nice 'n' Naughty shop will be the first
adult retail store short listed to win an “Award for Business” at a
glittering gala in Warrington, Cheshire. Nice n Naughty have been short
listed to the final 2 for the “Buisness of the Year” Award out of
approximately 1000 businesses in the catchment area.
Nice n Naughty had to meet a stringent criteria, which included
providing quality throughout the organisation's structure, strong
communications, and good employee/employer relations; all of which were
highlighted when Nice n Naughty successfully retained their ‘Investors
In People' Status at their recent re-assessment earlier this year.
We have opened a shop in Warrington, Cheshire
which is one of the largest shops in Europe with a floor space of nearly
4000 square feet. It has to be the largest in the UK. We have a massive
range of clothing and adult products. Well worth a visit. Now stocking over
1500 DVD/VHS. Friendly staff, browsers welcome.

On visiting Watford's only licensed sexshop (featured on Channel 5's
Gender Swap with Rebbecca Loos) I was pleasantly surprised!
The shop is stocked from top to bottom with an amazing variety of toys..
Rampant Rabbits take pride of place with lots of different colours, sizes
and designs! I would hazard a guess that there are at least 150 different
types of vibrators for women alone, which pleased my wife!
Then for me they had a large variety of pumps and vaginas! That's not to
mention the whole top shelf surrounding the shop being home for realistic
dolls of all sizes! The Manageress behind the counter was very friendly and
able to give us great advice about everything we asked her! she was very
confident and not at all intimidated by my query of how a penis enlarger
worked! As well as all this they have a wide selection of lingerie, bondage
equipment and DVD's and VHS all well priced!
I was really pleased with my visit and between myself and the manageress we
managed to persuade my wife to give the 'Love Swing' a whirl which she know
tells all her friends about!!!
We cant wait to go again!
Firstly, the shop seems to have metamorphosed from Harmony. It's now
called 'Simply Pleasure'. I don't know whether or not this represents a
change of ownership, though I suspect that it might.
It was a major disappointment. As a single man visiting the shop, I felt
unwelcome. It seems to me that it caters almost solely to women - plently of
clothing and toys for them, but nothing (apart from the videos/DVDs at the
back) for men. There was one man staffing the shop when I visited. Whilst he
was quite pleasant, he appeared not to have a clue what he was doing, and
was a long way from being helpful to me. I won't bother to go there again.
My wife & I visited the shop. It is brand new shop front with a very
tasteful window display of erotic lingerie, Inside just about every toy &
gadget you could wish for are on display. A collection of whips, floggers &
bondage gear if that floats your boat!. A very good selection of lingerie,
pvc silky gear, erotic games.
A huge range of R18 rated dvds & videos the videos were £30 each
which I thought was good value. There was one girl on the counter who was
very friendly and answered all our questions. The shop has a very good
atmosphere for couples or singles. We give the shop ten out of ten, a breath
of fresh air in the world of sex shops! There is a security camera which
covers the whole shop. The range of Rabbit vibrators every shape & size to
please any girl!! We look forward to our next visit

Review from Malcolm, September 2012: Seeking High Definition
I visited the Private shop in West Bromwich and
received accurate information and good deals.
I took one disc back because the content was poor
and even though I had time to have watched it, they took it back and I
was allowed to swap it for another with no trade in charge made.
On another occasion I tuned down one of their free
magazines while buying 3 videos for £50
and was told I could choose another HD DVD at no extra charge.....(4 for
£50 that day). Excellent service. I
highly recommend the West Bromwich store.
I have also been offered, when they have them,
Blu-ray's for the same price as 3 for £50

Harmony is a clean bright, newly licensed shop with a large selection of
stock in all areas, R18 videos, DVD's, sex toys & sex aids, clothing,
lingerie and a selection of leather clothing etc..
We always have about 300 titles of R18 films in stock. All at great prices
(as low as 20) and a part exchange facility. Although most titles are
hetero, we do have a selection of Gay, Lesbian & T.S. films.
In excess of 100 different vibrators & dildos always in stock. Plus a full
range of artificial vaginas and masturbating units and dolls. We also stock
a range of vacuum pumps and other erection aids including various creams.
Our staff are fully trained in the usefulness of all items we stock as well
as being trained in how to make the customer feel at ease in what may be an
embarrassing situation for them. Once again all prices are competitive.
We carry a large range of clothing and lingerie including nurse & maids
outfits etc. Once again staff are trained in converting sizes, as many
people know only one type of sizing. We always stock a range of top
quality leather clothing: Bodies, Basques, Bikinis etc..Further to this a
range of handcuffs and restraints made from top grade Hide. Plus harnesses,
gags, masks, hoods and Kat o Nine Tails. As always prices are competitive.
One more thing, whilst looking at your site I saw some customers' comments
relating to them being intimidated in certain shops. Sadly there are still a
few companies entrenched in that old fashioned style. However I can assure
you not so in Harmony, our staff are fully trained in all areas of our
business, with a very large emphasis on customer satisfaction. To run a
successful business you need regular and repeat trade, to achieve this you
a) Give good value for money
b) Have a great selection of stock
c) Keep the customer satisfied
We try our very best to achieve all of these criteria.
Our staff are repeatedly told “ It's the customers who pay our wages”
I think we've got it pretty right.
