Fifty Shades Sex Toys & Restraints

The Fifty Shades Impact on Sex

This new genre of erotica mixed with a romance novel, found in the Fifty Shades trilogy, has been the talk of every book club and is about to be turned into a movie series. It is a series of 3 books about bondage, wild sex and love. Often referred to things such as "the mommy porn revolution," it is getting many women as well as couples excited to get creative in the bedroom. Women and men are benefiting from these books as it is allowing them to consider sexual creativity and exploration in ways they had perhaps not yet considered.

This is not just through BDSM sex toys and role playing; this is also through the exploration of using vanilla sex items such as vibrators, dildos, stimulating lubricants and more to enhance intimacy, sexual performance and increase sexual satisfaction and pleasure.

With the success of the Fifty Shades books, sex toy retailers are trying very hard to sell people on buying their sex toys and bondage equipment so that they too can experience the fun of BDSM, their "Inner Goddess", and explore the world of Doms and Subs, etc. We have seen all kinds of hype, classes and promotions about it; with some good and others that are just outright scams that take advantage of people.

That is why our emphasis is on education so that you fully understand how to integrate sexual products and techniques into your own sex life safely and with complete satisfaction. The last thing we want is for you to simply purchase something without fully understanding what to expect or how to use it. We also only carry nontoxic sex toys that are phthalate free so you never have to worry about toxins in the very things that are supposed to be giving you better sexual health and pleasure.

Christian Grey is a charming yet complex man, with gray eyes, who is afraid of intimacy and enjoys training women to be a submissive in the world of BDSM. He is repulsed by the thought of being touched and cuddled and prefers to dominate only through whips, ropes and sex toys. Christina asks Ana to sign a contract to be his "submissive" sex partner so that they can enjoy sexual adventures in his Playroom (sex chamber / Red Room of Pain). Ana explores her own sexual side and discovers her "Inner Goddess" as a submissive in this love affair.

The Second Book: Fifty Shades Darker

In the 2nd book Anastasia breaks off her relationship with Christian and starts a new career with a Seattle publishing house. However, she finds that she is consumed with thoughts of Christian and after he proposes a new arrangement for their relationship, she proceeds with rekindling their erotic adventures. Both characters struggle with their inner demons and struggle to find a healing for themselves as well as balance through a healthy sexual connection. Throughout the book, the act out their lust for one another through BDSM style sexual play.

The Third Book: Fifty Shades Freed

In the final book, Ana is determined to have a deeper commitment from Christian. It seems that this couple now has gotten everything they want. However, just when it seems that all is well, more obstacles and self growth is required of both characters in order for the relationship to either evolved or come to an end.

Criticism of the Books

The main criticisms that have been made of the book series 50 Shades of Grey have been about the quality of writing. Because the author E. L. James is British, there are some inconsistencies with how Americans actually speak versus British wording. For example, instead of calling or phoning someone... it is mentioned that they will ring someone.

Other criticisms are poor grammar choices, comparisons to the books of Twilight by Stephanie Meyer and some people have said of the books that they do not find some of the aspects of the story line believable; such as that Ana is a virgin, and has never masturbated at the age of 21 as well as small things like the fact that she does not have cell phone or computer as is in her last year of college.

Is this Really Erotica or Merely Romance?

Erotic authors have found the book to be rather tame and repetitive. The same positions and sex acts are used over and over with very little variation. However, for people who have not had exposure to Erotica, this book series has proven to be quite stimulating for them. Erotica authors have also expressed that they feel the author has used Ana's inability to refer to sexual anatomy (she calls her vagina "down there") as a way to keep these books more Romance novels then true Erotica. In Erotic books, you will find that there is no holding back when it comes to using words such as cock, pussy, etc.

BDSM Mistake in the Books

One of the biggest mistakes the author makes in the book series is that she has the characters refer to spankings as "hitting." Those who are involved in BDSM sex know that the term hitting is never used as it indicates abuse rather than the pleasurable spankings that they enjoy giving and receiving. There are very strict rules when it comes to BDSM and for the most part the author mentions the most important, which is safety and consent.
