TOP STUDENTS GO WILD FOR SUPER-REAL PRIVATE SHOP SEX DOLL Cambridge undergrads flock to swanky new-look store
TRANSFORMATION: Private Shop in Cambridge wins rave reviews RANDY students at one of Britain’s top universities are beating a path to a new- look sex shop.
And they all want to get their hands on a £ 1,860 hyper- realistic SEX DOLL!
Brainboxes at Cambridge have been flocking to the city’s Private Shop after the store had an upmarket makeover.
And with the new uni year just weeks away, thousands of freshers – first year students – are expected to visit the shop, with many clamouring to buy one of the lifelike love dolls.
A source said: “Some of the students will use the doll for the purpose it was designed.
“But in our experience, many of the more well- heeled ones – members of the uni drinking societies or rugby teams – will take it on bar crawls as a mascot.
“It’s quite a status symbol when you come to think of it.”
As well as being a hothouse for eggheads – such as boffin Stephen Hawking – Cambridge has produced sexy celebs, including Hollywood star Tom FRIENDLY: Couples and women love the new- look shop IN DEMAND: New sex doll is flying off the shelves Hiddleston and Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman.
The Cambridge Private Shop has been open for more than 30 years but has undergone “a long overdue” mega- bucks transformation to make it more appealing to “couples and women”.
Manager Lisa Bernard told Sunday Sport: “A lot of women said they felt uncomfortable coming in before the makeover.
“Friends of mine who are professionals – social workers, lecturers – said, ‘ I wouldn’t be seen going in there because of what it looked like on the outside’.
“It was a garish blue and it had been that colour forever.
“It had that look about it, because the windows had a grey lining. It looked so awful.”
Working with her supervisor Leigha Turner, Lisa drew up a new designer look for the store.
The shop is licensed by Cambridge City Council and claims to be the only sex shop within a 20- mile radius.
Lisa added: “A woman came in and said, ‘ The shop front looks amazing now’.” FORMER STUDENTS: Tom ( top) and Claudia
