From the SLS Las Vegas to the Drake Hotel in Toronto, a number of hotels around the world are helping guests get off. The Drake, for one, provides a "Pleasure Menu" with 14 sexy items for sale, including bondage tape, a silk blindfold, a Je Joue Fifi rabbit vibrator, and a We-Vibe Classic. The offerings have been "very popular since their inception," said Ana Yuristy, executive director of corporate services at Drake Hotel Properties.
Some hotel sex kits are elaborate, like the Drake's, while others contain just the essentials. New Indulgence, a company that supplies sex kits to 1 Hotels, MGM Resorts International, Dream Hotels, Gansevoort Hotels Resorts, and more, offers two kinds: an "emergency" kit with condoms and lube, and a more advanced one. Barb Greiert, the owner of New Indulgence, says the advanced kits are more popular in hotels.
Not every hotel is as sexually liberal as the Drake, with its 14-item Pleasure Menu. In Greiert's experiences, some hotels are down to stock the "emergency" kits, but take a hard pass on selling the more advanced options.
So, should you try out a sex kit? I mean, why not? For starters, you'll save room in your suitcaseand avoid a potentially awkward TSA encounter. Hotel managers report sex kits to be among their top-earning mini-bar items, so if you choose to indulge, you certainly won't be alone.
