Lately, the closest you’ve come to role-play is when the Mr. goes to the store for diapers. Treat yourself to a little fantasy at one of three bootylicious hotel rooms.
Sex on the Beach
Play Ken and Barbie for a night at the Malibu Beach Inn (22878 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu; 310-456-6444). Request room 316 or suite 321 for sweeping ocean views. Nice packages (tee hee) include dinner or breakfast and are guaranteed to get you in the mood.
Wednesday really is hump day at Maison 140 Beverly Hills (140 Lasky Drive; 310-281-4000). Check into a red-hot Mandarin room while sipping a complimentary glass of rosé. Then head downstairs to Bar Noir for Vin et Fromage, a weekly wine and cheese tasting featuring local vinos, 6-9 p.m.
Living in Oblivion
Knock back a pitcher of margaritas, then have a fling in suite uno at El Tres Inn (4439 West Sunset Boulevard; 323-666-6351). Located above El Chavo Restaurant, the three-room lodge recalls a swanky Mexico City bordello (purple-tiled bathrooms, black wallpaper). Pastries, fruit, and joe take the edge off the morning after.
You’ll be in and out.
