If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. It is a German institution - a retailer that once boasted outlets and was listed on the junior market on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
But now Beate Uhse, once the world's biggest retailer of erotica and sex toys and a pioneer in the field, has been put in its place by the internet in the same way as many other traditional store chains have.
The business has filed for "insolvency under administration", the German equivalent of "Chapter 11" in the US, enabling it to continue trading while it seeks new investors and attempts to complete a financial restructuring.
Beate Uhse takes its name after its founder, a female former Luftwaffe captain and fighter pilot, who was banned from flying after the war by the Allies and, looking for work as a war widow, began selling toys door-to-door.
In doing so, she came across many German women with unwanted pregnancies, a legacy of the way Hitler had suppressed advice on birth control.
This inspired her to write a pamphlet on natural contraception, based on information she had learned from her mother, one of Germany's first woman doctors.
She had to give a printer five pounds of butter - accumulated with six weeks' worth of food coupons - to get him to print it.
The two-page pamphlet, called Document X, sold 32, copies at 2 Reichsmarks each during its first year. From that, Mrs Uhse set up a mail order business selling contraceptives and what used to be euphemistically described as "marital aids".
She later recalled: "In Germany, after the war, it was no great feat to sell goods. The art was in getting hold of the goods to sell.
Yet her activities were not entirely in keeping with post-war German morality. The mother of three always robustly defended what she did, though, with the decision of a tennis club to ban her from membership apparently the only occasion when public disapproval of her business caused her genuine unhappiness.
The "Wirstschaftswunder", the miraculous rebuilding of the West German economy in the s and s, ensured she had plenty of business and, in , she opened her first shop - the world's first sex shop - in her home town of Flensburg, northern Germany.
The business quickly thrived as German attitudes to sex became more liberal in the s with the arrival of the contraceptive pill.
The company went on to enjoy explosive growth during the s, particularly after West Germany legalised pornography in , with Mrs Uhse insisting her output was more tasteful than the "awful stuff" put out by the Scandinavians.
By the end of the decade, Beate Uhse employed more than people and owned a condom manufacturer, a lingerie manufacturer, a film distribution arm and a pharmaceuticals business selling various oils and aphrodisiacs.
She was also adept at marketing: the company sponsored Germany's answer to Woodstock, the Love and Peace Festival in on the island of Fehmam, where Jimi Hendrix gave his final performance.
The company opened its first shop in the United States in and, in , revived her mail order operations which had, at that point, been superceded by bricks and mortar stores.
The AIDS pandemic of the late s boosted condom sales and, when the Berlin Wall came down in , German reunification provided another sales boost as millions of East Germans clamoured for goods they had previously been denied.
Mrs Uhse was distributing her brochures to the old East Germany within a fortnight of the wall coming down. Expansion across Europe followed, but not in the UK, where tighter legislation on pornography capped what the company could sell.
The mail order business was flattened by the likes of Amazon while attempts to relaunch the business, most recently based on the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, also backfired.
Also conspiring against the company were rivals such as Victoria's Secret, which were perceived as more upmarket, as well as nimbler new rivals explicitly catering for women customers in a way Beate Uhse did not.
