I promised our readers that I would try a new patisserie in Seminyak that sells dick and pussy-shaped waffles – so here you go.

The two-story, cozy shop features pastel pink colors throughout its minimalistic, cute decor along with a touch of green. Located on Kayu Aya Street, the patisserie isn’t on the main road and is somewhat hidden behind other stores.

That being said, you simply cannot miss the bright pink logo outside that reads “Mr & Mrs Dick.”Once inside, I immediately noticed quotes on the walls such as, “I licked it, so it’s mine” and “Waffles that will make you come.” The second floor was adorned with, “Life is a dick, sometimes it gets hard for no reason” and, “I like it when you lick it.”

I chuckled, as one tends to do when bombarded by sexual puns.

The waffle lady greeted me and showed off a display case filled with un-dipped waffles shaped like penises and vaginas. To be honest, it was quite refreshing to hear her describe the waffles while unapologetically using the word “vagina” (if you’re Indonesian, you’ll understand why).

I ordered a chocolate-dipped, penis-shaped waffle with nuts (no pun intended) and a strawberry-dipped, vagina-shaped waffle with pink sprinkles. I have to tell you that the portions are on the large side so they can be a mouthful – but no complaints there.

The owner, Carlo, was at the shop during my visit. Naturally, I had to go deep and learn about his motivations for launching the risqué patisserie.

Carlo, who prefers to be mentioned by his first name only for privacy reasons, told us that he was inspired after a friend told him about a similar shop in Milan named Mr. Dick almost a year ago.

“My friend mentioned it to me and I was like, you know what, maybe I will make one here in Bali,” said Carlo, admitting that he was sort of joking at the time. 

The idea lingered in Carlo’s mind, nonetheless. Eventually, sensing an opportunity to launch a unique enterprise, he began his research. First and foremost, he spoke with legal experts. 

Indonesia is draconian when it comes to pornography, and ambiguous definitions of what constitutes a violation of the law could put a place like Mr & Mrs Dick in the crosshairs. Carlo said that he kept verifying his plans with his legal team, and later, landlords, before he was sure he could launch the business.

Carlos conceded that he would not even think about opening a similar shop elsewhere in Indonesia, such as Jakarta. Bali, on the other hand, is more relaxed when it comes to products with sexual themes, with one example being the multitude of shops that sell phallic souvenirs on the island.

“In the end, it’s all just fun stuff. We call it ‘a 10-minute fun,’” Carlo said, noting that people can just come and go, eat the silly-shaped waffles, take some pictures for their Instagram, and then leave. 

When I asked him why the shop is called Mr & Mrs Dick and not Mr Dick & Mrs Pussy, Carlo said that the first option sounded simpler (“It’s sounds similar to the famous movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” he quipped) and ‘Mr. Dick’ already exists in Italy. That said, he was sure to add vagina-shaped waffles to the menu so that the store is not just about dicks.

“We’re all about equality,” he said. 

All in all, Mr & Mrs Dick is a fun, new addition in Seminyak. When it comes to taste, there is admittedly nothing mind-blowing about the waffles. They’re sweet and tasty, that’s for sure. Texture-wise, they’re on the right side of soft throughout, though the dick-shaped waffles were harder to bite into, for some reason. And, again, they’re big – especially the dick waffles – so prepare a napkin to wipe the dick and vagina waffle juices dribbling from your mouth.

All things considered, Mr & Mrs Dick’s courage to sell sexy sweets – a rarity in Indonesia – must be commended.

It’s all in good fun.
