Pour the soup & Toss the salad – Restaurant promotes sex in its bathrooms

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen is inviting customers to have sex in its bathrooms.

The Valentine’s weekend promotion took uncomfortable but electrifying sex from the close confines of an airplane and transferred it to the unisex stalls of the Hanna Ave. restaurant. The Liberty Village restaurant proposed its modern bathrooms became one of the “101 places to have sex before you die.”

Mildred’s has always elicited a certain response. One customer, who didn’t want to be named, remembers going to a wedding at the eatery’s old location and seeing a copy of the Kama Sutra in the bathroom. “They invite it,” said the customer. This time, the invitation is explicit. On its website, Mildred’s asks: “Have you given any thought to moving beyond the bedroom?

“Check out Mildred’s Sexy Bathrooms throughout the weekend of Big Love. You get the picture.”

Actually, the picture is clouded by practicalities. Is the restaurant supplying condoms? What about the health risks of body fluids? And who’s cleaning up? “We’ve always had little trysts in our bathrooms,” says chef/co-owner Donna Dooher, pointing to lingering weekday lunches as a popular time. “We took it to the next level on Valentine’s weekend.”

 

The restaurant’s four bathrooms light up outside when occupied. Staff have learned to watch the light flicker twice when two customers enter the same bathroom, usually a few minutes apart.

Toronto Public Health says as long as there’s no sex in the kitchen and the restaurant keeps its washrooms clean and sanitized, it’s not fussed. “As far as bodily fluids, it’s pretty much similar to the other human functions going on in there,” says Jim Chan, manager of the food safety program.

Dooher says customers brought their own condoms but she’s hired a maid to tidy the washrooms that weekend. “She was there with her feather duster and cleaning supplies.”

At least diners aren’t encouraged to use furry handcuffs, part of a $55 “naughty love hamper,” while at Mildred’s. “Best to savour and enjoy (those) long after you leave the restaurant,” the restaurant says. (Source)
