Away from the hustle, bustle and gloryhole controversy of Cheshire Bridge Road's strip joints and sex shops sits Brushstrokes Pleasures. The naughty sibling to the flagship Ansley Square retail outlet celebrates a big expansion on Saturday. We take a peek.
It takes some doing and more than a little elbow grease to convert 500 square feet of a Thai restaurant and absorb it into an existing sex supply store. The staff shifted stock, polished up the existing store to match the expansion, and put in place fresh stuff to fill up what they dub as their new double-wide. It's not as simple as it sounds.
Now that the construction project is complete, what's the best way to christen a fluffed up sex shop? With a porn legend. Chi Chi LaRue and a handful of her hunky boys arrive on Saturday for Brushstrokes pleasures is now DOUBLE WIDE. It's just one of the Best Gay Things to do in Atlanta This Weekend.
Brushstrokes announced its expansion plans for Pleasures in late January. What did it take to get from there to a renovated here? We take a look.
This may get messy.
Sexy fans to keep cool. Shopping for sex supplies can heat you up.
New walls to hang more sex toys.
Carpet tiles to comfort your feet.
Add new display cases. Better to see your sex supplies.
Figure out a floor plan.
New glass windows. Better to gawk through.
Build to a climax.
