With over 60% of women finding the idea of buying a sex toy to be exciting*, a new boutique is luring these pleasure seekers online with its range of designer gifts.

Little Shop of Erotic Delights, established by Elizabeth Bassnett of South Tyneside in the North East, is a new one-stop-shop for lovers and pleasure seekers who have a penchant for erotica and designer brands.

In the UK, it’s estimated that four million sex toys are sold every year, proof that us Brits are in tune with our sexuality and looking to stimulate our senses with adult goods. It’s not just for self-pleasure though – erotic items are also growing in popularity among couples after a thrilling dose of fantasy and adventure in the bedroom.

Little Shop of Erotic Delights stocks a range of luxury gifts for both women and men, by designer brands like Lelo, Bijoux Indiscrets and Shunga. These items are perfect for those looking to succumb to their naughty side, or for those yearning to inject some fresh passion into their relationship.

Dressing up in sexy lingerie is one way to get saucy between the sheets. Little Shop of Erotic Delights stocks luxurious lingerie by Tallulah Love, together with flirty corsets and chemise tops which will give your partner a discreet peek at what awaits underneath.

For an intimate pleasure seeking experience, the sleek dual action Lelo Insignia Soraya vibrator, the Sensua Whip with sheepskin suede tassels and Tenga Eggs are also available to purchase from the boutique.

Alternatively, set the mood for a night of seduction by creating an alluring, romantic backdrop with the website’s selection of boudoir accessories, including scented massage candles and delicate rose petals.

Elizabeth, who was a director at a marketing and design agency for seven years, decided to launch her new venture after several life changing experiences, the most significant one being the loss of her Mother.

She explained: “I realised that life is too short not to take risks and try new things, so I decided to set up Little Shop of Erotic Delights, and I’m really excited about the future now.

“I want to bring glamour back to the adult industry, which has lost its direction a little and hasn’t kept up with the more discerning buyer. Ethically, some of the products out there are not even safe within your body. We stock body safe products and I feel this is an important consideration when pleasure seeking.”

Elizabeth added: “Bringing fantasy and adventure into a relationship can strengthen partnerships. Monogamy is on the rise, partly due to couples being more open to trying new things. An active sex life is good for your fitness and wellbeing. It’s also well known that orgasms can reduce stress, make you feel good and are a proven pain reliever.”

In the year ahead, Elizabeth is looking to expand the business to include a larger range of romantic gifts and accessories for lovers and pleasure seekers.
