A Sex Shop ? Way Out Here ?
The story goes that Ronnie was going to turn a delapidated barn into a farm stall and drinks stop, his friends added the word "sex" to the original sign for a joke, but the joke stuck and his mates persuaded Ronnie to open a pub as well as the shop.
Ronnies Sex Shop is out on Route 62, the road that runs from Cape Town to Oudtshorn through majestic mountains and the rolling hills and broad plains of the Karoo. It is a beautiful drive, but everywhere on it seems a long way from everywhere else.
