I did it. I devoured the 50 Shades trilogy in record time.
I did because all the cool kids were doing it and even though I hated the writing, it wasn’t enough to stop me. I read it for the sex. The naughty, naughty sex between one Anastasia Steele and Mr. Christian Grey.
And I’m not alone either. Author E. L. James is sitting pretty amid her 50 Shades success as droves of blushing women flock to their local bookstores for a healthy dose of kinky kinkery. The Huffington Post reports that fans can now attend a 50 Shades of Hot Sex workshop inspired by James’ erotic novels.
Hosted by Babeland in NYC, the workshop details specify, “If you’re curious about how to try out some of the scenes from the book, we’ll discuss ways to make your fantasies into reality…Arrive early; the first twenty five guests will receive gift bags filled with toys that are Mr. Grey Approved.”
See, that’s the part that scares me, “Mr. Grey Approved“. As much as I enjoyed the highly italicized narrative of Anastasia’s inner goddess inside the Red Room of Pain, I’m not sure I’d be so personally accommodating.
For those of you bedroom warriors interested in attending the free 50 Shades of Hot Sex workshop, I regret to inform you that all the spaces have been reserved (whomp, whomp). No doubt popular demand will have Babeland hosting additional events in the future. Until then, “Laters, Baby”.
Would you attend a “50 Shades”-inspired workshop?
