Hoping to spice things up for Valentine’s Day, or perhaps to attract a different breed of customer (the Larry CraigGeorge Michael set), Mildred’s Temple Kitchen is encouraging customers to have sex in its four unisex bathrooms. According to the Toronto Star, Mildred’s has long encouraged loo liaisons (its former iteration, Mildred Pierce, had copies of the Kama Sutra lying about), but now the Liberty Village restaurant is being more explicit. “Have you given any thought to moving beyond the bedroom?” asks its Web site. “Check out Mildred’s Sexy Bathrooms throughout the weekend of Big Love. You get the picture.”

Although the Star points out some practical concerns (what about condoms? fluids? mess?), chef-co-owner Donna Dooher isn’t fazed. “We’ve always had little trysts in our bathrooms,” she says and points out that she’s hired a maid for the Valentine’s Day cleanup and is encouraging customers to bring their own condoms. The restaurant is also supplying furry handcuffs as part of a $55 “love hamper”—a decorative birdcage that also contains cookies, pecan squares and a cookbook.
