An English hotel will be offering a sex toy minibar when it opens later this year…

The Vincent Hotel, in Southport near Liverpool, will have “intimate seduction kits” in each of its 60 rooms from May, containing lubricating gel, massage oil, a vibrating ring and two condoms.

The kit will be in a sealed box alongside more traditional minibar items like nuts, chocolate and alcohol. Guests can request an extra special kit containing a whip, mask and bondage tape.

Owner Paul Adams said: “As well as giving guests a design conscious venue to stay, we wanted to give them a decadent, inspiring and seductive environment to enjoy.

“We want to provide our residents with a distinct and highly individual experience in their own private, opulent space.”

Southport is best-known for its Victorian-era promenade, the oldest surviving iron pier in Britain and the Royal Birkdale golf club, where the Open Championship will be held in July.

Woo… Speaking as someone who works in the hotel industry, I know they’re gonna have complaints from the housekeepers over this one.

Wonder how much they’re gonna charge for *those* minibar items?  I’ve always heard that the stuff in minibars is ridiculously expensive….

I can see the laundry bills going up drastically.  I wonder if the *extra* kit is provided at no additional cost??

Yes, I can ‘imagine’ people combining all that other stuff into some rather interesting mixes.

I think that depends on how much of the room is reusable after you’re done. cheese

Just a thought, because they come in minibars, shouldn’t these kits come with the warning: “not edible”. It might be rather embarrassing to have your obituary/tombstone read: “Choked on a condom”

They are still there.  However any hotel I’ve ever been in they look brand new despite having a published date a couple of decades earlier.

They are provided by Gideon International, and the Gideons replace the Bibles pretty regularly, including if they get battered looking or defaced or anything like that. (I’ve never been involved with the group, but I’ve known a couple of other people who were—they seem to be very nice folks but they are a bit too evangelical for my taste.) For one thing, it’s perfectly OK with the Gideons if a traveler wants to take the Bible with him. Make no mistake, Gray, you may not use those Bibles but some people do.

If I checked into a hotel that had a sex toy minibar, I would FOR SURE check the sheets, and I’d want a fresh-from-the-laundry bedspread too. You remember that survey a few years back on how those bedspreads tended to be just perfectly disgusting? And that was without sex toys. I mean, euw!

Only two condoms?

I hope they refresh this mini bar every day when they change the sheets. And they BETTER change the sheets.
