A Very British Sex Shop

Very British Sex Shop

This eye-opening documentary follows the extraordinary Richardson family, who run a chain of sex shops in Brighton and whose day-to-day dealings provide a unique peek into Britain’s bedroom habits. The head of this erotic empire is dad Tim, who has owned stores Taboo and Lust for nearly two decades. His family life is as unique as his work life. Helping with the business are Tim’s new wife Calandra, and his ex-wife Nancy, who is also the mother of Tim’s two children: Kizzy and reluctant heir apparent Taz. The programme charts the family’s efforts to keep business booming, from staff meetings focussing on vibrators to family brainstorms on how to make the most out of the lucrative Valentine’s season, as the team take ‘Sexy Bingo’ to the streets of Brighton. Can they hit Tim’s ambitious £20,000 Valentine’s Day target? Tim has also organised a latex fashion show, starring his daughter Kizzy. But with only seven days to organise the event and bring in a 150-strong crowd, tension is high.
