Is there an age restriction from buying things from Ann Summers? Watch
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 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....
