Here at CCK we’ve been huge fans of Ray’s work for some time – and it seems we aren’t the only ones!
His increasing popularity means that the Open Edition Prints that we stock in the CCK webshop will soon be coming to an end. The last date you can order by is November 30th. With only one week to go, we want to make sure you have time to get your mitts on a signed work of art!
Ray’s work is super sensual, and his strong women show the artists fascination with fantasy and fetish. His leather and latex clad women are beautifully drawn and have been the object for many critics.
This is the last chance to get a piece of Ray Leaning artwork without commissioning a private piece, so don’t miss out! We have a huge selection to choose from so go and have a browse and see what takes your fancy. Support CCK Today!
Don’t forget to check out Royston’s Artist Spotlight on Ray Leaning too, to learn more about this incredible artist!
Having delighted many a fan of muscular men with previous photoshoots for their clothing ranges, Dolce and Gabbana have not disappointed said fans again. Steven Klein’s photoshoot for Dolce and Gabbana’s spring/summer collection has a Spartacus-come-Sicilian fishermen theme. Grappling with ropes, netting and chains, as well as each other, (which I am sure we are all quite familiar with, in one form or another!) the mixture of smooth, pretty boys and hairy, rugged-type models get all sweaty in their range of warm weather wear.
Fashion photography is reknowned for using kinky, erotica-themed ideas. In this particular shoot the muscular homoeroticism fair ripples off the page! If you are a connosseur of such imagery, you should check out Coffee, Cake and Kink’s selection of Ulli Richter’s photography, which gives a few, hard lessons to any imitators. (Especially my personal fave ‘Hard Labour’. There’s no messing with these men!).
Well, Prince William and Kate Middleton (you know the ones..always on the news, something to do with a royal family..), have finally decided on what cake to have at their wedding. The Welsh National Culinary Team have been chosen to bake the cake, to be unveiled on the 29th April. The cake, which may well have Welsh-themed decorations, will then be donated to the Centrepoint charity.
If you want to have your cake (and eat it too!), Coffee, Cake and Kink have a delicious selection of beautifully made and tasty cakes on offer. Check them out, and as you will see from the photos, there are even some serving suggestions!
Drew is the man responsible for our graphics, and we persuaded him to take a break from designing our new website (did I not tell you we’re going to have a new website? – ed.) and playing in his bands to wax lyrical about Monmouth Coffee. We used to serve Monmouth in our Endell Street café, and we are the only online sellers of Monmouth. Here’s Drew to tell you more.
Being an ex-barista I have had the pleasure of working with many different roasts of beans from all over the world. I often find that the most hyped roast can often leave me feeling a little cold with a savour that really doesn’t suit my taste buds. However, this is not the case with the fine selection at Monmouth Coffee. It tastes wonderful. Whether you enjoy a subtle fruity taste or prefer a darker more passionate flavour, Monmouth coffee will provide the right roast for you.
I am a total coffee snob and I urge you to dump your Starbucks addiction for a far superior coffee experience today!
Patrick Califia is one of my all-time favourite writers. He is an incredible wordsmith, able to write both fiction and fact in a way that both draws the reader in and informs you. His erotica is some of the hottest writing you will come across. Boy In The Middle is another of his compelling, sexy short story collections of polymorphous perversity and hardcore, sexually charged scenes. Califia has a way of taking the reader right into the story. He has the ability to describe place, character and atmosphere so well, you can’t but help feel a part of it.

Boy In The Middle has such a collection of differing characters and set-ups that I defy anyone not to get some pleasure from it. Whatever your kink, fetish , gender or sexuality, Califia caters for you in this book. His writing will surprise you, in being able to turn you on to a story, scene or character you may otherwise not have thought you’d be interested in; such is the power of his imagination. I recommend anyone who enjoys erotic fiction to read this book. Allow yourself some time to indulge and immerse yourself in it, because it will be hard to put down. Oh, and if you’re reading Boy In The Middle in public, be aware that its effect may leave you needing to find somewhere, for a ‘quiet, private moment’!
At CCK, we sell the products we love – and that we know! Every week, a member of our staff picks one of their favourites to write about. This week’s staff pick comes from Lysander, who you know as one of our regular writers. If you’re looking for earlier staff picks, there’s a whole category to your right! Here’s Lysander:
Indeed it is a classic! I’m quite fussy when it comes to lube. Too often they get dry and tacky way too quickly, or they cause irritation to more sensitive souls and their sensitive areas. Mr B Fist Classic manages to stay good and slippery for a long time, which is handy (excuse the pun!) for more marathon-like sessions. It is condom compatible as well.
It is good for what it says on the tub. No worries about causing any unwanted discomfort with its easy glide formula, the thickness of the formula also allows it to last that little bit longer. It also works well for anal play for exactly the same reasons. It’s popular on the gay men’s scene, and as we all know, gay men know their stuff! Even better, there’s no nasty aftertaste, so the only gagging you end up doing is purely consensual.
Mr B Fist Classic can work as a good all-rounder lube, lasts a good while and comes in both tub size (for when you’re indoors and need that little extra) or sachet form (if you happen to be on the move).
This week’s staff pick is courtesy of Royston, part of our graphic design team and all-round superstar. Royston writes:
This stylish artbook caught my attention the other day – “Super Heroines” by French artist/Illustrator Hubert de Lartigue. He’s had quite an illustrious career, spanning everything from Science fiction to fantasy in a number of different media.

This book represents his work from 1987 to 1996, and is full of elegant, sexy and damn right badass women to ogle over! His style is very clean and stylish, with amazing attention to detail. Some of his work clearly shows inspiration from Japanese Anime, which always resonates with me!
If you like de Lartigue’s work, we also carry cards featuring his Cheries! series as part of our UK Exclusives collection – meaning we’re the only place you can get them in the UK!
