50 Shades mania sets off skyrocketing sales of sex toys
A third of the entire stock intended to last until Christmas sold out on the first day of trading after the collection became available for pre-order exclusively at Brtiain’s biggest online sex toy retailer, Lovehoney.co.uk
Extra stock is being shipped to meet the huge demand from couples keen to spice up their Christmas.
The first sales figures for the official range show that fans of the book are keen to try out Christian Grey’s sexy games at home.
Topping the popular toys list are the Inner Goddess Silver Balls , which have been described on the site as perfect for those in need of a new toning challenge with added satisfaction, selling nearly twice as fast than any other item.
“Enjoy Anastasia-style pleasure thanks to these advanced kegel balls,” the Daily Mail quoted the website as saying.
The second most popular was the Insatiable Desire Mini Vibrator and the Yours and Mine Vibrating Love Ring came third.
E L James has worked with designers to make sure that the stylish, high quality range perfectly recreates the items used by Ana Steele and her billionaire lover Christian Grey.
With names inspired by passages from the books, this is the first time that fans have been able to buy the official sex toy and soft bondage merchandise.
“We have been overwhelmed by the response,” said Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford said.
“The figures show which pleasure products described in the books have really captured people’s imaginations.
“A year ago, silver balls were hardly known. Now millions of women want to try them in their bedrooms.
“Encouraged by the books, couples are buying the Official Fifty Shades of Grey sex toys and bondage items for Christmas presents in unprecedented numbers. It looks like a lot of British couples will spend Boxing Day handcuffed to the bed!” Slateford added.
