If you are a nerd and you have not been to Shameless Grounds yet, you are missing out.
Shameless Grounds is a sex-positive coffee shop one block west of the intersection of Jefferson and Gravois. It's located in the same building as Koken Art Factory, the venue that puts on the yearly Naughti Gras erotic art show.
Shameless Grounds hosts a variety of great events in their own right: the monthly Literary Nudes figure drawing event, Off the GRID (Genderfuck Retro-Alternative Indie Drag Show), PJs and Movie on Wednesdays, Tenacious Trivia on Mondays, Rope Bite chapter meetings, Kinky Bingo, Kinky Book Club, and more.
At the center of the shop lies Shameless Grounds' lending library, which contains a variety of material that relates to human sexuality, both to educate and to entertain.
In addition to being a welcoming area for many of St. Louis' alternative lifestyle groups, and a great place to hold meetings, Shameless Grounds is also a pretty damn good place to get coffee and some food. The menu is small but tasty, and includes a variety of vegetarian and vegan offerings. The shop also often has lunch specials for around $6.
