Sexy superstore open for business
Pulse and Cocktails
The store is believed to be the second biggest in the world
A sex superstore, claimed to be Europe's largest, has opened its doors in Rotherham.

Pulse and Cocktails covers 7,000-square-feet and stocks 8,000 products from novelty toys to specialist clothing and lingerie.

The shop, in Canklow Meadows Industrial Estate, even has a water fountain inside.

Company director Graham Kidd believes the store is the second biggest in the world - 3,000 square-feet behind the Hustler store in California.

Mr Kidd describes the store as an "upmarket erotic theme park" and said: "We've been extremely happy with business so far and we've been very busy.

"We buy in stock from around the world and have 3,000 items of lingerie alone."

The store cost 250,000 to fit out with a smaller city centre version planned to open in Vicar Lane, Leeds, in five weeks.
