There's No Roof, But The Cock-Ring Sale Goes On!!

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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
