Picks for the Anti-Valentine

31 Jan

So, you hate Valentine’s Day too? Maybe you dislike the idea, or the “Hallmark Holiday”, or just don’t feel like celebrating. Well, join the club: there’s even a day for it, if you’re single.

But even if you hate Valentine’s, you deserve a treat, right? And if going out with your friends isn’t your thing, how about a night in, snuggled up with a DVD or a book and some coffee and cake? Or chocolate, of course – it is traditional at this time of year, after all. Oh, plus it’s tasty.

So, what would I recommend? Well, top of the list: entertainment. I particularly enjoyed reading the …on Top selections of short stories – salacious literature about men and women topping (or dominating) their partners. Alternatively, if looking at gorgeous photography is more your bag, you can’t go wrong with a spot of Ray Leaning.

Prefer a night with a good film? Well, then I prescribe Preaching to Perverted, a BBC film (yes, really!) now exclusive to Coffee, Cake & Kink, it is the story of a young man trying to gather evidence for a legal case against fetish clubs in the UK; however, the star of the show falls in love with an American sex goddess and leader of the UK and US “scene” and tries to persuade her out of her illegal exploits, whereas she wants to pervert him… who will win? The DVD is region 0 which means you can watch it anywhere in the world. You know you want to try it…

What will you eat and drink whilst you enjoy your evening’s entertainment? Our ranges of coffee and cake change often, so give us a call to chat to one of our Personal Shoppers and see if they can tempt you with some wonderful Monmouth coffee, handmade cakes and Feeding Your Imagination chocolate…

Staff Pick: Layaspot

15 Dec

Each week, we ask one member of our team to pick which toy (or painting, or book) they most love – this is Katie’s.

I tend to love Fun Factory’s toys and the Layaspot is no exception.  The colourful, funky shaped stuff is often cute enough to leave lying around without embarrassment – I’ve mistaken a buttplug for a piece of art before! – and they pack in a mean bit of excitement as well.  The Layaspot has multi-speed vibration and three pulsation modes, and like the rest of Fun Factory’s products it is made from high quality hypoallergenic material.  In all, it’s a really exciting little toy and well worth the cost.  I personally think the silver/black is the most stylish, but it comes in a bunch of colours so have a browse around!
