Meet The Black Entrepreneurs Behind New York City’s Sex-Positive, Inclusive Dessert Spot
Comments Off on Meet The Black Entrepreneurs Behind New York City’s Sex-Positive, Inclusive Dessert Spot
It’s not everyday you come across x-rated shaped food.
When you walk into Kinky’s Dessert Bar in New York’s Lower East Side, one of the first things you’ll notice is the selection of waffle and cookie-shaped desserts shaped like genitalia.
It’s all part of the experience at Kinky’s, as what’s being called New York’s only adult-themed bakery — and even better, it’s Black-owned. The shop cheekily celebrating two of America’s favorite things and bringing them under one roof: desserts and sex.
Food entrepreneurs August and John DeWindt created Kinky’s Dessert Bar as a fun, sex-positive and gender inclusive space where guests 18 and over can enjoy naughty waffles, cookies and cupcakes.
“As a Black woman, I know what it is like to enter spaces and not feel welcome or included, so I wanted Kinky’s to be viewed as not only a dessert bar, but as a place where people can openly be themselves without judgment,” says August.
