About

Regulation Store in London is like the cool kid on the block for the gay crowd into kink and fetish stuff. It's tucked away in Soho, which is basically the heart of London's buzzing gay scene. This place isn't just any store – it's a treasure trove for folks who are into leather, rubber, and all that fun stuff.

Originally from Islington, Regulation decided to amp up the vibe by moving to Soho. It's like walking into a wonderland of fetish gear – they've got everything from custom-made leather and latex to an array of toys that'll make your visit more than just a shopping trip. Think of it as a one-stop shop for exploring your wild side.

Regulation isn't just about selling stuff; it's about embracing the whole lifestyle. Whether you're a newbie or a seasoned pro in the fetish scene, this place is welcoming and super chill. Plus, it's super easy to get to, just a hop, skip, and a jump from Angel Tube Station.

So, if you're in London and looking to explore the kinkier side of things, Regulation is definitely worth checking out. It's got the gear, the vibe, and the location – what more could you ask for?

Always helpful, always friendly, and there is always something new to see and explore. A treasure trove of kink! I still slightly miss the Islington store, but only because it was very near my office - now it gives me an excuse to go into Soho at the same time.

Friendly staff, helpful, and of course the items are top quality. I’m definitely gonna buy rubber & other fetish gear only here as long as they keep up this way.

That was my firt experience in a shop of such type. All staff was very friendly and understanding. Big variety of clothes allowed me to design a costume of my dream. Additionally, the shop has many BDSM items and probably I will buy a couple in the future.

Regulation is the UK’s fetish supermarket. The best staff with the best advice. We have a lot of gear and 90% of it comes from Regulation.

Great store, you'll find the real fun stuff downstairs. The range leans towards the masculine but females will find something interesting here, too. Approachable staff showed interest and pride in their stock, a range of leather, silicone, steel and timber from Pakistan, China and local makers. The uncluttered layout makes your preferences easy to find.

Excellent service and products. And amazing when a lovely stranger at the counter insists on paying for my items even though I protested. He said ‘Merry Christmas’ and walked away.

I’m a frequent online shopper with Regularion but finally got to visit and spent way to much on gear that I just had to have! Which much more now in my wish list. Fairly well stocked at the time I visited with helpful staff. If this is your thing you must stop by this place and it’s one of the best stores around. Not to be missed.

Found this shop by accident and when we had almost given up on finding something quite specific, this shop had it available. The service was perfect making sure it was the right size. 10/10

I will try to write a review that is as as honest and professional as possible. I start by saying that the shop had an incredible potential, remarkable is the quality and the varied quantity of stock. Unfortunately, the weak point is the customer care. As I entered the shop I was barely greeted (only after my greeting was reciprocated by theirs - 3 guys chatting at the till). When I asked one of them if the size I was looking for was available, I was told that it would surely be reordered sooner or later, without even seeing if the one I was looking for was among the harnesses displayed, without looking in other stores or online and without even checking when the next delivery was due. Anyway I ask if I was allowed to try on a bigger size, I am told yes but of course I was not shown where the fitting room was located, I had to ask where it was, being my first time in the shop. One of the guy told me it was downstairs. Going down the stairs I am amazed at the huge room with a myriad of other items I had not been told about. I finished trying on the harness and decided to buy it but first I asked if another style I had seen on line was available. I was told that if it wasn't on the shop floor it meant that they didn't have it, and I asked if they had it on the shop floor since I didn't check and the guy told that he didn't have a clue. Honestly, a bit bored, I asked him if he could check or if he wanted me to check. Let me point out that the amount of harnesses in the shop is huge but no one showed me around for any alternatives to what I was looking for. I paid for my purchase and left a shop that, in my humble opinion, should rely on a team that has knowledge of the stock, the shop floor, is passionate and WORKS. Nobody was unpleasant or rude but absolutely absent from a professional point of view. I probably won't go back there again soon because I prefer to shop online rather than being a burden to them.

I entered the place with a friend and I was ask not to laugh as soon as I entered. Never heard anything like this before in my life. We were shocked and didn't even stay to look at one item. Shocking.

I am far too familiar with bad customer service but today’s visit to Regulation was on another level. Honestly I have no idea what’s wrong with the people who work in this store: the customer service is not just non existent but hostile and aggressive. I’ve tried four times since it opened a few years ago and each time I have received a very aggressive reaction, the kind as a person of color I receive only in the American South (which definitely makes me wonder). Today I wanted to take a look for new leather trousers as I lost some weight but as soon as I came in, the bleached blonde sales person could not give a f, instead drawing on a yellow notepad. When I asked if there is more downstairs, he eye rolled. Ok that’s fine but when I asked if I could leave my bag at the front desk, he shouted at me with such disgust I have never experienced ever in London. It was so I bizarre, rude and out of place. I have worked in retail for decades and understand off days, but I have never shouted at a customer for something as simple as if they could leave their bag at the counter. It’s such a shame as I live around the corner and try to support small businesses as much as I can, such as Algeria for coffee etc. Sadly this is not one of those businesses.

I popped into this shop a few days ago with the intention of buying some leather clothing. When I asked to try on some trousers, I was informed that would not be possible due to covid regulations. I thought fair enough, but then trying to get any more information about the product, fitting, bespoke services etc was like trying to get blood out of a stone. Neither staff member seemed remotely interested in customer service, nor were they interested in not knowledgeable about the products in the shop. All in all, appalling customer service. I cannot see how this shop will survive if it's employees cannot grasp the meaning of "retail".
