Preview: A Very British Sex Shop

A 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 the bedroom habits of Britain. 

Head of the 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 is Tim’s new wife Calandra, and ex-wife Nancy, who is also mother to Tim’s two children: Kizzy and Taz – the reluctant heir apparent, who Tim hopes will one day take over the family business. 

The film charts the family’s efforts to keep business booming. 

Expect staff meetings focusing on vibrators and 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. The star of the show?  Daughter Kizzy.  But with only seven days to organise the event and bring in a 150-strong crowd, tensions are high.  Will the family pull together and pull it off?

A Very British Sex Shop – Friday 12.05am on Channel 4.
