Where Oh where, in the wonderful City of Lights, can we find some kinky attire and fetish paraphernalia?
As the publishers of Fetish Map London, we are often asked for advice from kinksters travelling around Europe, in search of new avenues, and new ventures. Paris is not just about love and romance, look deeper and you'll find eroticism and kinkiness.
The bohemian, free spirited area of Beaubourg /Chatelet and Le Marais, is home to the George Pompidou Centre, amazing street entertainment, typical Parisian cafés and an amalgam of quirky shops.
As you turn the corner, leave the crowd behind, you enter a narrow street filled with quaint shops. From modern unusual art exhibitions to eccentric fashion boutiques and raunchy sexy stores, such as Metamorph'Ose, the choice is truly exquisite.
Metamorph'Ose is a place to lose yourself, browsing the vast array of fetish attire and sexy chic outfits. A very discreet basement allows you to shop to your heart's content away from preying eyes. But make no mistakes, it is no tacky basement. One of the oldest streets in Paris, Rue Quincampoix is home to some fabulous architecture. The washed stoned cream walls, the domes and arches together with the wooden cross and the prie-dieu - so you can kneel for confession - give an ecclesiastical ambiance, mixed with a wicked spirit, to this erotic boutique.
The array of clothing spans from leather outfits, pvc items to sensual lingerie. At Metamorph'Ose, they happily cater for any request for kinky or alternative wear, including uniforms and fancy dress, so, don't be scared to ask.
A whole room dedicated to shoes and boots, each pair more fabulous than the next one, with a foot slave who gratefully helps you with the fitting; you can even dig your heels onto his thighs, or let him worship your feet. A personal touch from the in-house foot fetishist is the extra added bonus of Metamorph'Ose.
So, yes, Metamorph'Ose, is a unique place for the free thinker, a place to find your most kinky desires: paddles, whips, bondage gear, all the sex toys and accessories you could imagine and more...
Venture yourself to this beautiful part of Paris and explore the streets, the cafés, the shops and discover the hidden places that will bring the naughty, kinky spirit out of you...
