Coco De Mer

    Taking its name from the rare palm seed that resembles the female form Coco de Mer is a departure from the seedy sex shops of yesteryear, bringing erotica into luxurious and stylish arena. The store was founded in 2001 by Sam Roddick, daughter of the late Anita Roddick, who was the brains behind the successful Body Shop chain. Incorporating the elder Roddick’s policy on being natural and eco-friendly, Coco de Mer offers massage oils made from non-synthetic ingredients, as well as water-based lubricants and Fair Trade, carbon-neutral condoms. The store also places emphasis on quality and indiviuality, enlisting artisans such as Paul Seville to create leather harnesses, together with latex lingerie and accessories from the award-winning Atsuko Kudo. Designer sex toys are imported from Sweden, Germany and Japan, and include dildos made from medical grade steel as well as hand-crafted stone ‘love eggs’. There is also a touch of tongue-in-cheek Englishness - a nod to the country’s prudish Victorian past - with dainty cups and saucers embellished with vulgar phrases in elegant handwriting. The store also holds ‘salons’ (intellectual discussion groups) throughout the year, on a number of erotic themes.Show lessRead more
