50 Shades of Grey: A Green Light to Play

Summer 2012 was hot enough and this summer's best selling erotic trilogy made it even hotter. People of all ages were reading the 50 Shades of Grey books, opening their eyes to a whole new world of BDSM. Beginner's bondage kits and ben wa balls were flying off the shelves while couples were brought even closer together in the bedroom.

What makes 50 Shades of Grey such a popular book?

Could it be that the fairy tale story of young Anastasia's sexual awakening is the main draw? In book one she was a 22 year old virgin who never so much as masturbated or even knew anything about sex. By book three she had tried everything and was practically begging to go in Christian's red room of pain. Her chance meeting with a young and handsome millionaire changed her life and filled it full of heart pounding adventures as well as the thrilling sexcapades.

It seemed women everywhere wanted a taste of what Anastasia had. This awakened a sexual desire to experiment in the bedroom and really increase intimacy between couples. Many even wanted to try new things on their own like ben wa balls.

How did 50 Shades of Grey breathe new life into ben wa balls?

In the story, Christian presents Anastasia with a pair of silver ben wa balls. After they are inserted into her vagina he gives her a spanking which makes the ben wa balls jiggle like crazy! Anastasia becomes overwhelmed by this amazing new stimulation and they fast become her favourite toy. In 50 Shades Darker she voluntarily wears them to a charity event which soon fill her full of ecstasy. Women of all ages all around the world reached for ben wa balls of all shapes, sizes, colours and textures.

50 Shades of Sexual awakening

For the experienced S&M player, the 50 Shades trilogy was hardly even a blip on the thrill meter. On the other hand, for the average woman these books gave her the confidence boost needed to try new things in the bedroom. Everyone from young mums to women in their 80's felt more liberated and free to experiment sexually. For years women have been taught, 'Ladies don't do such naughty things.' It would seem that 50 Shades of Grey has broken down these mental barriers and opened up a whole new world for women all over the world to add a little spice to their life.
