An  erotic shop or sex shop is a shop that sells products such as sex toys, erotic lingerie and underwear, safe sex products (condoms and dental dams), erotic games and gifts, and to a lesser extent in the 21st century with the advent of the internet, pornographic films (usually on DVD) and magazines. The euphemisms "adult video store" and "adult book store" are commonly used to refer to sex shops that sell pornographic films, books, and magazines.
