Coco de Mer is the most wonderful, delicious erotica-shop i know. I simply adore everything about them. They are tasteful and witty, debauche and sooooo sexy! You can find them in London and L.A., and of course on internet.
When explorers of the past moored on the distant shores of the Seychelles, they believed they had fallen upon the Forbidden Fruit in the biblical Garden of Eden. Scattered on the tropical beaches were palm seeds that unmistakably mirrored the front and bottom area of the female pelvis, thus reminding them of what they were missing at home.They had chanced upon the coco de mer seed, the seed of the sea, a quite extraordinary palm seed only found on two islands in the Seychelles. It is the largest seed in the world, weighing up to 40 pounds! The coco de mer is rare, precious and protected, and a perfect representation of the beautiful sculpture that is the female form.That is why the coco de mer seed is our source of inspiration. By choosing this strange seed of the sea as our symbol, we join in natures celebration of all that is erotic, sensual and beautiful.The coco de mer germinates from both a male and female plant. Whereas the seed so closely resembles the female form, the male plant has a stamen, which looks strangely like a penis. A huge penis at that, and one that smells of sticky sweet honey. At Coco de Mer we celebrate both genders and believe that between two consenting adults there should be no barriers to love. Like the coco de mer, we all come from two and therefore we honor both the feminine and masculine aspects of life.The coco de mer palm grows slowly, until its branches release once more its beautiful seed. Like our inspiration, we will grow patiently and strong, providing on the way tactile, sensuous and precious products that are made by the finest craftsmen.We have very strong and clear ethics at Coco de Mer. All our products are made with the consideration of environmental and human rights. We invest in the talents of local artisans. When we seek a skill abroad we work with small Fair Trade projects or cottage industries.Ultimately, we hope that our products bring you joy, inspiration and a recharge of sexual energy that translates in the infinite enjoyment of one of life's great gifts.We, at Coco de Mer, are unashamedly about sex. Celebrate the beauty from which we all come!Savour life and drink it to the full.

The Coco de Mer is nature's warm witty take on human prudishness, designed for the sole purpose of making us blush.
