We’re Old School folks here at XD Publications. We prefer print magazines and DVDs to online porn; and real sex with real people to virtual wanks on Facebook and Skype; and if we need a hard dildo to shove up our aresholes, we’d much rather hit the High Street to buy one than order from an online retailer of sex toys. That’s why you’ll often find us hanging out in that Great British institution - the licensed UK sex shop -  browsing through the racks of dirty mags, R18 porn films, vibrators, dildos, butt plugs, hard-on pills, room aromas and trashy lingerie.


Of course, many people feel a certain amount of fear walking through the door of a sex shop for the very first time. The boarded up windows and back street locations (insisted upon by UK law) can make them seem imposing places; and with that typically British prurient attitude to anything to do with sex, one is even encouraged to feel a degree of guilt and shame about wanting to buy a blow up sex doll and a tube of lube. But take it from people who have been in sex shops up and down the country and waltzed through the doors with the brazen attitude of people who really don’t give a shit - the modern UK sex shop is a bright, friendly and always very welcoming place where you can browse through fabulously sexy products to your heart’s content without being judged. Oh, and even better still, you might find our filthy porn mags on the shelves...

Owner Terry has been running Chelmsford’s Adult Discount Store since 1981. It started life as a Private Shop and was the first ever UK store to be granted a licence, but is now fully independent and stocks a huge range of DVDs, mags, vibrators, dildos, love eggs, rampant rabbits, strap-on toys, lingerie and sexual performance enhancement pills. It’s situated on Moulsham Street, a quaint, little shopping road just off the main High Street in Chelmsford packed with independent traders offering proper service and the personal touch.

Try not to get distracted by the side door (which leads to the sweet temptations of the massage parlour on the upper floor) and instead head inside the door at the front to enter what, in our view, is one of the friendliest licensed sex shops in the UK. It’s located in the Digbeth area of Birmingham, straight over the road from the coach park, and it stocks all the latest adult magazines (including our very own), as well as R18 porn DVDs, dildos, vibrators, anal toys, hard-on pills, room aromas and lube. We always pop in when we’re in the Birmingham area, as there’s a nice relaxed atmosphere in which to browse all the latest adult products. This is everything the modern sex shop should be - and more!
