Ever since the mainstream release of the book earlier this year, Fifty Shades of Grey has made an epic impact on the world we know today. More women are getting comfortable in reading erotica and has become a more talked about issue. Not only that, but bit by bit being adventurous in the bedroom is turning into a mainstream thing with a rise in sales of adult toys and adventurous lingerie. With all this in the background, it looks like we’re gonna have quite a steamy and Christmas season coming up this year.
With the launch of the official Fifty Shades of Grey collection carefully designed and put together by E.L. James in conjunction with Britain’s largest adult retailer Lovehoney, a survey has been conducted to look into our sex habits over the festive season.
According to Lovehoney’s survey, a third of us have made out with a colleague at the Christmas Party, and surprisingly only 5% have regretted it. In fact, a huge fifth of that portion have actually started dating that very same person they stole a kiss from at the company party.
Others saw it as a moment of indiscretion, with a third laughing off the kiss, but one in seven prefer to never mention it ever again.
And it’s not just the naughty behavior at the company party that Lovehoney have noticed during the festive season. Apparently more couples are getting more action and spice at home with December the 24th marking the day when couples are more intimate with each other than any other day, with a whopping 60% of couples getting a bit of festive fun in the bedroom, with New Year’s Eve coming in second with 58%.
While Lovehoney carried out the poll, thousands of couples have been buying up items from their new Fifty Shades of Grey merchandise as the festive season draws closer. A third of their stock sold out in the very first day of their sales, with the Inner Goddess Silver Balls being the most popular with sales going out twice as fast as any sex toy or bondage product. Thanks to Fifty Shades of Grey, the co-founder of the adult retailer, Neal Slateford, is expecting this year to be their busiest in history. Even though it’s only November, their sales are up a third this year!
“Fifty Shades of Grey has changed the whole Christmas Market,” said Neal Slateford, “Millions of couples around the world want to experiment with pleasure products for the first time. It’s not just toys but soft bondage, too. Couples everywhere are going to be enjoying thisChristmas and realising that stockings are for a lot more than stuffing presents in!”
So thanks to Fifty Shades of Grey and the new range from Lovehoney, it looks like it’s going to be the best Christmas ever. Fans of the books can add the items from the Fifty Shades of Grey collection to their Christmas wish list or even the Fifty Shades of Grey: The Classical Album, that has been put together by E.L. James herself to get you in the mood for some red room of pain action.
