Girls gone wild

Bring out the whips and the furry handcuffs; the girls are ready to show off their wild side. As bakers, party planners and popular lounges across the city report a dramatic increase in the incidence of bachelorette parties, every straight man’s fantasy has finally become a reality.



Kishore DF, co-owner of popular pubbing chain WTF! recalls, “We’ve had plenty of bachelorette parties at our Khar and Versova venues. Recently, the friends of the bride even came in for two days to rehearse a particular dance with the bartenders. When the bride walked in, everybody broke out into a co-ordinated performance to the song Sex Bomb.”



Moving the party into a lounge or club seems to be the safest bet, as Kishore explains, saying, “Urban Indian women aren’t up for doing any hanky-panky. At pubs, they can have games and dares where they rope in random guys to participate. And of course, the men are more than happy to play along.”



Louella Carvalho, who heads the events team at Party Hunterz, a one-stop-shop for celebratory props in Bandra, says that they’ve had daily sales from the bachelorette section of the store. “They usually buy sashes that say things like ‘drama queen’ or ‘bride-to-be’ and other fun accessories like tiaras, fancy glasses and veils. We even have whips and sexy stockings on offer, though we don’t stock them too prominently in the store,” she reveals, adding that they’ve already catered to almost 30 such bashes this month.



Trying to keep up with the sudden demand for the risqué, Preeti Chopra of Sweet Passions in Chembur whips up about 10 to 12 naughty cakes every week. Designs could include a sugar dough couple making love under the sheets or a jelly-filled double-D bosom dressed in a polka-dot bikini… and steadily climb the erotic graph from there.



“Earlier, people would chip in and buy the bride-to-be a present. Now, they pool in the money and get her a naughty cake,” she explains, saying, “Some of the orders are really kinky, and the customers have very specific customisation requests for the adult cakes including colour of skin, type of clothing, size of the body parts and so on. As you can see, there is a lot of detailing involved.”
