The Beate Uhse company is part of the story of an extraordinary woman with a strong personality. In 1962 Beate Uhse opened her first erotic shop, “The Institute for Marital Hygiene”. By 1971 this had grown to a chain of 25 shops where lingerie, books and accessories were sold. During the 70s the regulations for Erotica were relaxed and the Adult Industry came to life, the number of Beate Uhse stores grew rapidly. Eventually, in 1999, Beate Uhse became the first erotic company to be listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
