Visited Ronnies Sex Shop in South Africa and all I got was a t-shirt.

Located along a lonely stretch of famous highway in the Little Karoo, Route 62 offers a wide variety of scenes and activities including a stop at the well known Ronnies Sex Shop.

When Ronnie painted his building a fresh coat of white with red letters his intention was to open a farm stall to sell produce and fruit with the name ‘Ronnies Shop.’  Friends of his added the ‘Sex’ part as a joke and although Ronnie wasn’t happy about it at first he later took friends’ advice and opened a bar where a little food is also served.

Although it may look like you pay with underwear all these garments were a donation.  I didn’t leave anything behind except a Junior Ranger Badge from Grand Canyon.

Had I realized Ronnies was just down the road from Warmwaterberg Spa where I was staying I’d have dropped in one evening.  And even though I’m not much of a drinker this would be a great place to hang out with the locals sitting on the rooftop while enjoying a sunset.  Plus Ronnie is full of stories.

I bought the pink t-shirt

You probably won’t get laid here, but how about a cold beer.  Or a t-shirt.

I highly recommend stopping at Ronnies Sex Shop if you’re driving the R62 between Barrydale and Ladismith in South Africa.  And tell Ronnie ‘Hi’ and I’ll be back.

  1. Every time we pass this place from now on, I’ll think of you, Gaelyn! (Just because you wrote about it, not because you left something small there, ha-ha) We’ll be passing it sometime this weekend when we go down Route 62 towards Barrydale and our friends who own Country Pumpkin. (I think you stopped there too) Have a great day. (((Hugs))) Jo xxx

  2. Fun or funny place. Bring in the crowds with a name like that.

    I tried to send you a photo by clicking on
    geogypsy’ as told to do in your previous post but it said page not found. Maybe I should just email you. MB

  3. Oh girl, I bet you’re gonna’ get a lot of strange google visitors with that title! It’s always a joy to find local places and places where the locals hang out. And I usually enjoy people who are a tad off-kilter, so yeah, we’d hang out at Ronnie’s if we were in the neighborhood!
