We have all heard about the great love story that was Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Just watch Cleopatra if you need any reminding.
What we don’t know is what happened during their first encounter. Enter Exhibit A, a quote from Richard in which he describes his first impressions of 19 year-old Liz.
"She was," he proclaimed, "so extraordinarily beautiful that I nearly laughed out loud. She... [was] famine, fire, destruction and plague... the only true begetter. Her breasts were apocalyptic, they would topple empires before they withered... her body was a miracle of construction... She was unquestionably gorgeous. She was lavish. She was a dark, unyielding largesse. She was, in short, too bloody much... Those huge violet blue eyes... had an odd glint... Aeons passed, civilizations came and went while these cosmic headlights examined my flawed personality. Every pockmark on my face became a crater of the moon."
Indeed ladies, this is the kind of reaction we should be conjuring.... and although there can only be one Liz Taylor and Violet eyes only come about once in a blue moon, I bet these Coco de Mer love salons, could be just the thing for leaving an unforgettable impression on any new love interest.
NO SEX PLEASE, WE ARE BRITISH!
For those who are easily offended ....please look away now!
The concept of the salon dates back to the Eighteenth century, where social gatherings in the 'grandes salons' of private residences were fuelled by dynamic hosting skills, intellectual debate, music and debauchery. Why do you think Courtesans were so good at keeping their men!
Continuously striving to transform the way erotica is viewed, edgy London lingerie shop Coco de Mer is reviving this great tradition by hosting days of unrivalled entertainment, education and enjoyment.
