Andrew Martin toasts five 'social phenomena' that are still with us - just. The genesis of this is hazy. It seems the author lost his travel pass in Soho one day, aged 17. And soon felt there the allure of such places: those erotic emporia. Ruminating on this experience, Andrew looks at the history of such retail outlets and why they have almost entirely disappeared. Producer Duncan Minshull.
