If South Beach sex shops, Pleasure Emporium and Déjà vu Love Boutique were porn legend Ron Jeremy, then the brand new sensually glamorous boutique Sex &… is Jeremy shaved, toned, tanned, but still very well endowed. Meaning that Sex &… won’t just help you to get the job done, you’ll actually like what you see too. The women-only, members-only erogenous escape located at 743 Washington Avenue begs you to touch, try and buy everything within the black-lacquered walls. And at a recent media day, the more buzzed I became off of the gratis bubbly at the champagne bar, the more I wanted to do as they told. I was enchanted by the jaw-dropping (in price and style) jewelry, enraptured with the raspberry tartlets and craved to be a member so I could feel this way everyday. It felt good to know that no man would be allowed inside the walls unless I invited him in, and even better to know that if perhaps, I became drunk as a sexy skunk, the car service would gladly deliver me to my (or his) front door.
As a purveyor of exclusive, high-fashion and upscale brands, Sex &… sells everything from couture gowns to erotic-themed housewares, pet couture and even Swarovski-crystallized staplers. And while you will find vibrators beneath the glittering Roberto Cavalli chandeliers, they’re 24k gold and lie alongside $600 lingerie sets and butter-soft velvet handcuffs. Today’s grand opening is the last day that any regular ol’ plain Jane can step through the sliding glass doors of the Sex & … boutique without a membership, so RSVP to TARA, INK at 305-864-3434 ext. 199 and prepare to get turned on. -- Raina McLeod
