Hi!
I am a member of the management team in an Ann Summers shop so you can trust this reply 100% haha.

You need to be over 16 to be in the shop.
(Young children with parents at all times is usually fine but only in the underwear section)

You need to be over 18 to go into the vibes section.

You also need to be 18 to buy the more erotic underwear (i.e. body stockings and crotchless pants etc)

You should be 18 to order vibes etc online and if you are doing a click and collect and we think you are underage we will check for ID - if you're underage we'll do a return so you get the money back.

These are all legal requirements just like needing ID for alcohol or cigarettes.

Hope that clears everything up

Also, if you are old enough but are still being too loud or perhaps rude or saying things like "this is disgusting who would buy this stuff" (it can upset other customers and puts some cutovers off coming in to our shops) you may be asked to quiet down a bit.

The actual legal situation is going to depend on a number of things. There's no restriction on buying crotchless underwear, for example, but there may be other material around that would mean a restriction on being in the space.

The main problem is that most of the stuff sold there isn't very good. The classic example was an elastic dildo harness - the users are going to get banged in ways they didn't intend....

No I went in there recently to go bra shopping and they didn’t kick me out. It least, I’m 13 and on the shorter side so it’s not like they thought I was older or anything but I dunno if you can buy a sex toy there tho

Ok, if you’re going to buy something, the last thing i would do is ask if there’s an age restriction because they will instantly assume ur underage, just walk in confidently get ur item and pay (if they ask for id say you forgot) and if they refuse to serve you just walk out dont make a scene simple
