The above photo is of the "confessional booth" at Coco de Mer on Melrose Ave
. You look through a little grille into the dressing room. Coco de Mer is a fantastic little luxury erotica shop created by Justine Roddick. Her business card describes her as the "Proprietress of Pleasure." (Also read my piece on one of the dominatrixes
, Mistress Absolute, who teaches classes there.) Roddick's parents started The Body Shop. "I tell my mum and dad, they can take care of the outside of the body, and I'll take care of the inside," she says.
They sell rulers labeled "Teach Me A Lesson" and Ilya Fleet cats ear bondage masks. Oh, and these chocolate anuses. Yes, you read that correctly. They are, apparently, quite delicious.
