The Sh! ladies celebrated their 20th Birthday in style at Cafe de Paris last Thursday night.
The venue was dressed in glitter, the bubbly was of course cherry flavoured and the ladies themselves were all wearing the most gorgeous pink corsets.
Renee welcomed us in and I was greeted with a book in my hands. Not just any book, SEX: The Bible, which is an anthology of writers and artists who have performed or exhibited at Sh! Erotic Emporium over the years.
It really is an incredible collection of artworks, short stories, sexy advice and Sh! achievements and I’m so proud to have my poem, Party Piece nestled in among so many talented people.
The book also serves as a reflection of the diversity of Sh! and what they have achieved since they opened 20 years ago.
They not only sell a crazy amount of quality sex toys and offer honest advice on what’s best for you and your bits, they exhibit erotic photography and art at both of their stores, hold Filthy Mouths for female writers to share their work, Fannying Around, which is a relaxed support group that helps fanny owners open up about their special place and a whole host of work shops that are designed to help ladies – and gentlemen – explore and discover all the good stuff that sex has to offer.
So, back to the party! There were zebra dancers, Boy Kitten performed rope suspension, even Marilyn Monroe (well, as good as) made an appearance to sing Happy Birthday.
A huge thank you to Renee and to all of the gorgeous staff at Sh! for a fabulous night and for always being so sweet, so helpful and so damn hot whenever I have the pleasure of visiting one of the Sh! stores.
