TORONTO — For some overly adventurous and generally randy people, engaging in a sexual act in a public space must be akin to, say, eating a few crispy pieces of Colonel Sanders’ best breasts. Before the meal, you can already taste it; during the meal, all you can think of is how good (and bad) it is; and once you’re done, you just want to get out of there as fast as you can.
At Mildred’s Temple Kitchen in Toronto, all the proprietors ask is that you don’t leave a mess behind (or make too much noise).
In a Valentine’s weekend promotion, the popular restaurant in Liberty Village is all but inviting patrons to have sex in its unisex bathrooms. A none-too-cryptic message appears on its website, asking: “Have you given any thought to moving beyond the bedroom? Check out Mildred’s Sexy Bathrooms throughout the weekend of Big Love. You get the picture.”
Subtle? Not so much. Classy? Um, will Barry White be on rotation? Sure to spark a lot of discussion about the restaurant leading up to Valentine’s Day? You bet.
