If you a looking for something a little naughty, why not find try the Ann Summers site. It's not for the youngsters though!

Ann Summers:

"Ann Summers is the most successful British chain of High Street sex shops. As of 2004, it had just over 100 stores targeting the "pleasure retail" market. In 2002-2003 the privately-held company had a turnover of £110m.

The company was named after the female secretary of the male founder and has always targeted female consumers. It is a chain of unlicensed sex shops, which means that because of Britain's laws on licensing of sex shops only a small proportion of their products can be sex toys and the range of pornography sold is limited. The chain also has stores in Australia, Spain, and Ireland.

In 1981 Jacqueline Gold, daughter and niece of co-chairmen and owners David and Ralph Gold, having joined the company in 1979 as a wage clerk, launched the Ann Summers Party Plan - a home marketing plan for sex toys, with a strict "no men allowed" policy. These parties were and remain immensely popular, providing women with an excuse to meet for a party and talk about sex, and have entered British popular culture. They also provided the company with a way of circumventing the law which limited their presentation space for sex toys.

In 2000 it acquired the Knickerbox brand and its range of premium site lingerie kiosks".
