What Would The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Think About This?
We've always been, ahem, excited by the presence of sex kits in hotels, often found in the mini-bar with products ranging from the merely protective (a packet of condoms) to the truly scintillating (vibes, silk ties, gold handcuffs, et.al.) But as with on demand hotel porn, sex kits aren't always an excitable amenity for everyone.
The Berns Hotel in Stockholm recently started offering sex toys in their minibars. Nothing as scandalous as pictured on this news site but the for-purchase options include handcuffs, stay ups and a vibrator. Yet apparently, these new offerings are not jibing with the police crackdown on prostitution:
The hotel is trying to glorify something that we are working to de-glorify," said Tom Eckerling at Stockholm police to the newspaper.
The hotel has no plans to change its minibar assortment however and reported that the response has been positive from guests, which it claims is made up of a chic fashion, art and music clientèle.
The hotel has admitted that it will remove the items from the guestrooms if children will be staying there but so far, it looks like sexytime in the minibar is here to stay or as the hotel's reception manager Andreas L'Estrade told the Swedish newspaper, Svenska Dagbladet:
"There is nothing ugly with sex, that is something that we want to show."
We think Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, who do know the ugly side of sex, would still approve.
