An  erotic shop or sex shop is a shop that primarily or exclusively sells erotic products, such as sex toys, erotic lingerie and underwear, fetish clothing, safe sex products (condoms etc.), and erotic games and gifts.

This tag also includes shops that sell pornographic films and magazines — the euphemisms "adult video store" and "adult book store" are commonly used to refer to sex shops that predominantly sell such media. Naturally, this latter category is in decline due to the availability of on-demand streaming and the internet.
