Sex Sells in Old Town Alexandria

Everyone knows that Sex Sells! 

Historic Homes -- Old Town AlexandriaOld Town Alexandria:

Known for historic homes, cobblestone streets, the Potomac River, vibrant tourism, and a busy real estate market Old Town Alexandria just got a whole lot sexier!



Last year, I reported that Alexandria was selected as the "Most Romantic City in the U.S.A." -- read Proud to Be the Most Romantic City in the U.S.A.






What better way to live up to that reputation than the opening of a brand new sex store in the center of

Old Town Alexandria!


Sex store

According to ABC7 News, the new store "Let Tashe" is French for "the spot" and is already causing some controversy around town.  The store, located at 210 King Street sells high-end lingerie, sex toys, DVDs, and other adult pleasures.

While some Old Town Alexandria residents and other local shop owners have complained to the City of Alexandria about Let Tashe, Channel 8 News reported that John Kenney, the owner stated "if couples are coming here walking around and kissing, I think our products will serve the neighborhood well."


With Valentine's Day just 5 weeks from now, the timing couldn't have been better.

Trying to cook up something extra sexy for your loved one this year?  You may want to stop by Let Tashe in Old Town Alexandria!  Tell'em I sent you. 

Oh yeah, and whatever you decide to buy, please make sure you make use of it within the privacy of your own house...

Don't own a house?  You've come to the right place.  I sell those.
