One might think that Park Slope mommies, who have a reputation for uptightness, might be concerned about Little Phineaus wanting to go check out the colorful Rabbits when Toys in Babeland opens a few blocks from the Gymboree on Bergen Street. That's what the Post thought, anyway, when they headlined an article about the opening "SEX-TOY SHOP HAS BAD VIBES IN PARK SLOPE" and indicated that residents were displeased. On the contrary! "This is seriously the best news I've heard in months," wrote one poster to the Brooklynian message board. "No longer will I have to hear the plaint 'Where can a girl go to get a decent strap-on round here???'" said a commenter on Brownstoner, where posters were affronted by the Post's assumption that Slopers parents are too uptight for kinky sex. In fact, they're downright kinky! "My wife and I have a weird thing goin," shared an anonymous commenter. "I pretend I'm Marty Markowitz and she's Randi Weingarten. Our slave boyfriend, The What, is tied up to a big statue of Atlantic Yards. It gets kinky from there."
The Milan shows are almost over and we are still waiting for that "molto sexy" glitzy thing to rear its Swarovski-ed head. Soon, oh yes, we can feel it. But in the meantime, many of these collections, would be great for a super posh camping trip of sorts.
