Twin Cities Leather & Latte has everything we need: a little coffee and a lot of kinky.

Nothing says “Valentine’s Day” quite like a fucksaw! If you’re looking to add a little something extra to the bedroom (bathroom, kitchen, living room… we won’t judge) this Valentine’s Day, Twin Cities Leather & Latte will undoubtedly have you covered. From bondage gear and clothing to lube and sex furniture, TCL&L has something for everyone’s kinky speed.

After the only leather shop in the Twin Cities closed in 2012, Tynan Fox and Karri Plowman knew that the community was about to suffer a great loss. Which is why they wasted no time starting their own leather shop in the basement of a mansion in Loring Park in December 2012.

“It wasn’t much, but it was enough to recognize that the services we provide hold great value to the local community. People would frequently come in to shop but also just hang out with us and be a part of it all. We had to close this location in June 2013 due to a zoning issue, but we didn’t give up,” Plowman says. “Recognizing that people want to have a place to meet in the cities, we found a property which had been a successful coffee shop for the past ten years. Although we never really intended to become a leather and coffee shop, it seemed like a natural way to provide both retail service and community meeting space, and thus, Leather & Latte was born.”

Ever since, TCL&L has been bringing the community closer than ever before (literally). Plowman says their mission is to serve, grow, fortify, and nurture the kinky community in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and beyond. When you shop with TCL&L, you can rest assured you are supporting a business by kinky people, for kinky people, he says.

TCL&L proudly sells durable, quality, and affordable sex toys and leather goods. All products are rigorously vetted before being placed on their shelves, including bondage gear, insertables, lube, and other sex-furniture, Plowman says.

“We also manufacture our own line of leather harnesses and other clothing and accept alterations and repairs of our community’s most prized possessions,” he says. “All our harnesses are custom fit on the spot, because we believe that no matter your size, you deserve to look and feel great in a custom piece design especially for you!”

Though leather shops are rather popular in the GLBT community, Plowman says TCL&L is unlike any other.

“We have an undying commitment to the leather and BDSM community. We’re not just a local leather shop or your standard run-of-the-mill sex toy store. We strive to provide our community with the tools and education they need to partake in these activities safely—we would never sell an item of poor quality that doesn’t accomplish its intended purpose,” he says.

In addition to providing the community kinks galore, Plowman says they also give back to the community through donations and sponsorships for local leather clubs and events, offering the coffee shop as a meeting space for local organizations, and collecting donations for YouthLinkMN.

“When you shop at Twin Cities Leather & Latte, you can rest assured your money will be reinvested into the local community, making this a better place for all of us,” Plowman says.

If you’re looking for a unique romantic gift this Valentine’s Day (or any day… what’s stopping you?), TCL&L has you covered. Plowman suggests that you start off simple if this is your first time experimenting with BDSM. He says a fitted harness can be fun both in and out of the bedroom, and blindfolds—for both partners—can offer an entirely new experience.

“Try going at it with one another without being able to see. See if the slight sensory deprivation does anything for your romp,” Plowman says. “But if you’re a beginner, be sure to start small. You want to work your way up to the Fucksaw!”
