Oh come on! You have to admit you secretly fantasize about walking into a boutique with all kinds of sexy toys and lingerie hot enough to make you gape in disbelief, sensual oils filling the entire place and your senses all at once, and other novelties that will leave no proverbial stone of the imagination un-turned. I, mom of three, certainly have!
So when the ladies of the Bedroom invited me for a VIP-style tour of their newly opened Cape Town sensual boutique, I wasted no time. And boy, did they deliver!
As soon as I walked into the two-storied sexual sanctuary, as it’s aptly referred to, any anxiety I felt on my way there left and I immediately felt at ease. This was reassuring, since it must be a frightening experience for any sex-shop virgin such as myself.
I know it must take every fiber of a woman’s self-worth to confide in a complete stranger and admit her sex life is in a bit of a crisis or that she’s struggling through menopause. Imagine the embarrassment a guy feels having to admit he needs help with his erectile dysfunction. Scary indeed.
Fortunately, these ladies are not only passionate about what they do, but educated to help men and women alike take back their power and reclaim their sexuality with solid support from the South African Sexual health Association, as well as various sexologists and tantra experts. Which is more than we can say about any other similar joint.
And if this and the plush decor, the huge bathrooms and the bird’s-eye view of table mountain didn’t convince me yet, then the assurance that all their “play” toys are medical-grade silicone, high-end and imported, certainly did.
It is literally impossible for me to encapsulate in one post just how amazing these girls are and all that they do to ensure our experience is pleasurable and memorable. You simply have to see it for yourself. Thankfully that’s easy, with them right on our doorstep in Cape Town.
I also think it’s a pretty cool rule that although men are welcome to shop on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays without an appointment, the girls’ priority is for female shoppers’ privacy, and men are kindly asked to wait in the reception area until the fairer sex are on their way out of the boutique.
I recommend absolutely anyone, young and old, male, female, gay, straight, married, single or divorced to go have a look around the Bedroom and be prepared to have lots of fun and meet new friends.
You are welcome from Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm, and Saturdays and Public Holidays, from 10am to 2pm. Or visit their online store if you’re still warming up to the idea
Events after hours:
Book your tantra workshop, red tent event, sexual mastery workshop, private browse parties, bachelorette parties and bridal showers, burlesque shows, and even artist exhibitions and book readings.
