First, it was the historic Balinese Room. Then it was venerable Brennan’s. Now Ike has claimed a victim we’ll miss even more: the Erotic Cabaret Boutique at 6509 Westheimer, in the Galleria area. Seems Ike blew the store’s roof off, and it’s not reopening.
Where in the world will the bachelorettes of Houston get their penis straws? The submissives their slave chokers? The premature ejaculators their Brasshead 5 Snap Adjustable Leather Cock Rings?

Um, Erotic Cabaret. The other location, at 1222 Westheimer.
As an email from the EC people says, “Our main store is now overflowing with inventory from both stores, so we’re having a HUUUGE HURRICANE RELIEF SALE! We were able to salvage a lot of great items including costumes, lingerie, clothing, shoes/boots, Halloween accessories and many more at discounted prices!”
We’re not exactly sure why this is being billed as a Hurricane Relief Sale – the email says nothing about proceeds benefiting victims. Maybe it’s about relieving the Erotic Cabaret after the loss of one of their stores. Or maybe it’s about relief for you, the hurricane-weary. Sexual healing, indeed.
