Visited Ronnies Sex Shop in South Africa and all I got was a t-shirt.
And a photo of Ronnie, a happy guy who drinks for a living.
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.
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.
