These establishments offer unique goodies that are sure to satiate more than just an appetite for sweets.

Never has the concept of eroticism been quite so mouth watering as it is at Sweet-N-Nasty, Boston's premier sexy bakery, featuring everything from breast pops to visually titillating cupcakes.

Sweet-N-Nasty, located at 90A Massachusetts Ave, has been open for 26 years, according to owner Niki Novak. During those years, the store has offered distinctive and exciting treats not found anywhere else in the area.

In the store, customers find themselves face to face with a wide variety of indulgences. The shelves located at the center are dedicated to delectable chocolates, all molded to look like certain bits of the body. These erotic parts comes in all shapes, colors and sizes to fit any customer's fantasy.

White chocolate sperm float around near a selection of dark chocolate female torsos. The breast and phallic pops certainly catch the eye, while the giant cream-filled penises on the next shelf may intimidate newcomers.

The piece de resistance of Sweet-N-Nasty lies in its remarkable assortment of cakes and cupcakes. Cakes are made to order, and can include any sexy body parts.

Cakes range in price from $23.95 for an eight inch, to $84.95 for a full sheet, which feeds at least 100 people, according to the display book on the counter in the store. These innovative cakes are created individually by the in-store designers and are a hit at parties, especially bachlorettes, according to one worker.

Junior Lee Jameson, has purchased some tasty cakes from Sweet-N-Nasty.

"I had heard of erotic bakeries before, but I had never been to one," she said "They have a variety of things for you to choose from. It's a good place to get a cake for cheap."

Cupcakes depict a smaller version of the sensory-arousing cakes, offering bite-sized chocolate parts, set atop delicious whipped frosting. Cupcakes go for as little as $1.95 each, or 12 for $23.

Students interviewed said they had positively pleasant experiences at the racy retailer.

"Nothing like a penis cupcake to brighten someone's day," said junior Allie Lynch, who recently visited the store for the first time.

The shop also includes a "PG"-rated chocolate section, which includes tamer delights. These consist of chocolate cameras and cars, and even offer something for parents, featuring a tie for Father's Day and a white-chocolate heart for Mother's Day.

But never fear. The novelty of Sweet-N-Nasty is in its variety, so if edible goodies are not for you, just look around and take note of the array of sexually explicit gifts the store has to offer, ranging from goofy slippers to dirty dice.

Sweet-N-Nasty is a unique mix between bakery and sex shop, and continues to stimulate customers.

"The community likes us," said owner Novak. "We fill a need."

Sweet-N-Nasty satisfies a desire that many may not have known they had until they stepped through the door of the unassuming novelty shop.

On the tamer side, Flour Bakery Cafeacute;, which has two locations on both Farnsworth and Washington Streets, offers tasty cupcakes with naughty sayings, a specialty for Valentine's Day.General Manager Aaron Constable from the South End location explained in a telephone interview that the less thantraditional sugary treats are kept covered, and can only be seen by customer request.

"We warn people before we take off the cover.they can be pretty risqueacute;," Constable said.

Most of the phrases are made up by the staff, but the store does take some special requests. While Constable was uncomfortable reading any of them out loud, he thinks the cookies are an entertaining holiday treat.

"It's fun," he said. "It's a fun thing to do for Valentine's Day. It's fun to see people blush, people really get a kick out of [the cookies]."

If erotic bits and naughty quips are too much for you to swallow, Rosie's Bakery features heart-shaped chocolates and cakes for Valentine's Day. The chocolates are called "Chocolate Orgasm Hearts" and are made with brownie mix and topped with frosting.

Decorations for the chocolate heart-shaped cakes include simple flowers, making it a dessert suitable for the whole family.

"We sell out of these like crazy on Valentine's Day," said Michael Melendez, assistant manager of the South Station location. This bakery boasts five stores in Cambridge, Chestnut Hill, South Station, Porter Square and Wellesley.

Boston's bakeries succeed in pleasing even the most particular of tastes and will leave their customers hungry for more. This Valentine's Day is the perfect time to head on down and pick out that special treat for someone sweet.
