Brits indulge in Bondage treats in wake of Fifty Shades Of Grey trailer with sales of handcuffs, ball clamps, nipple clamps, eye masks and restraints being top sellers.
Whoever said Brits are conservative clearly needs to have their facts checked as the nation has reportedly become hooked on kinky romps in between the sheets.
Women’s lingerie brand Ann Summers has revealed a massive jump in the sales of bondage inspired gear including handcuffs, eye masks, floggers and many other things that would make your eyes pop in incredulity as Brits indulge in a world of Sadomasochistic fantasy inspired by the E L James book Fifty Shades of Grey, which is now being turned into a movie.
Traffic to the Ann Summers website jumped up to 55% within an hour of the movie trailer being released as the (few?) erotic scenes got Brit pulses racing. The trailer featuring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan playing Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey has become one of the most watched trailers ever with over 36 million views on You Tube.
In response to the huge interest in kinky romps, Ann Summers have issued ‘tips’ for customers who want to be the dominant or submissive in their own bedrooms, so listen up.
The tips include playing it safe, with an emphasis on having a ‘safe’ word for when you feel like you can’t cope anymore or one of you wants to opt out.
People are also urged to have a spare pair of handcuff keys to hand (should your partner become stuck to the bed post) with other options including the use of cling film if handcuffs are too much for you to handle.
It is also probably wise if you refrain from any flogging or spanking after you’ve had a few drinks. Just saying.
