A Trip to Madame Roxy’s Erotic Emporium

Vintage LicksComment

Last week Soho had some much need life injected into its old bones. With the old skool, sleazy charm of the place depleting by the day, a certain sneaky side street played host to a unique pop-up by the name of  Madame Roxy’s Erotic Emporium

If you look a little closer you will see this wasn't any old sex shop, and nor could it be. That's the point. Indeed this exhibition, and its entire contents has been individually hand sewn, with FELT, by artist Lucy Sparrow. Formerly a worker of the adult industry, Sparrow has set to try and test the ever-limiting boundaries of sex and adult entertainment, in short- if the exhibition hadn't been made of felt then the entire stunt would be illegal. And so, feast your eyes on one of the charming legacies protesting censorship and the narrowing, one-sided standards of "acceptability".

Sadly this place of stitched up vibrance has since flown the nest with the rest of them after closing on the 17th Oct. Luckily for you, you can still buy many of the pictured treasures from the online Erotic Emporium itself here
