Erotic Tour of Manchester – Top 3 Manchester Sex Shops

The top 3 sex shops in and around Manchester

We review so you know where to go to find the Top 3 Manchester Sex Shops.

The toys, the glamour, the pills and the films. Modern sex shops are not the seedy little back street porn hoarders of old. The industry has modernised and legitimised over time and you are more likely to find an excitable young couple browsing the vibrators than a long rain-macked man rummaging in his pocket for far too long. takes a look at the best sex shops in Manchester with locations, reviews and what they keep so you know where to go the next time you want a crotchless nurses uniform.

Our top 3 Manchester Sex shops

1 The Adult Shop

41 Bolton Road, Bury, Lancs, BL8 2AB
0161 761 4862

A real throwback and in a good way, a massive collection of porn DVDs, a wild stock of adult toys and an expertise from a history in the business that is probably unrivalled in the area.

In their own words… A true phenomenon among Adult Shops

We’ve been selling Porn at Bolton Road since 1974, when Super 8 mm Weekend Sex films of 10 min cost £30 and a copy of Color Climax magazine would cost you £25! Happy Days!! The popular Vibe was a ‘Non Doctor’ multi header that would cost you £14.95 including batteries!

In 2013 we’ve moved on a bit but we’re still a ‘PROPER SEX SHOP’, not a boutique or a designer shop, but a paradise for Adult Punters that want to experience a store where every square inch is covered with something exciting and definitely Adults Only.”

2. Nua

49 Tib Street
Manchester M4 1LS

A much more modern and female / couple focussed boutique style shop this one. An incredibly friendly and welcoming look with excellent customer service. Stock is mainly focussed on modern toys and games for erotic pleasure. Nua are clearly taking sex shops to mainstream.

One review on Yelp is typical –

I went into Nua with a few girly friends while we were on a weekend shopping trip into the city, being curiously drawn by the boutique look of the place…. Luckily we are all equipped with a good sense of fun, and were not in particular looking for anything that had been nonchalantly on our mental-note of a shopping list.  I can honestly say for myself that this shop is COMPLETELY different from any sex shop I have walked past and subsequently had the word “seedy” flash through my mind! I have to say that this place felt like it was aimed at women and couples who have a mature mindset, and it sells quality products….I did not see one cheap & tacky item! The staff were very welcoming… and may I add female, which I am positive for some shy customers would provide a more comfortable shopping experience. Even the packaging was discreet!”

3. Ann Summers

89 Halle Mall, The Arndale Centre, Manchester M4 2HU

We thought we would finish with the best known chain in the UK and their Manchester branch. Nobody has done as much as Anne Summers has to open up sex shopping to a wider audience. It was a very deliberate plan to be more welcoming to female clients that was formulated back in 1981 by the then 21 year old chief executive – Jacqueline Gold. With 80% of the stores’ customers now female. It’s a remarkable success story and the Manchester store is one of their busiest. With ‘hands off’ but welcoming customer service and a wide range of toys and lingerie will actually feel comfortable in. Ann Summers is undoubtedly the safe option.

That concludes our look at the top 3 Manchester sex shops. If we’ve missed any, let us know @feemamassage
