Fifty Shades of Grey bondage, sex toys and accessories at lingerie store La Petite Coquette, 6 February 2015
Do you think this is sports gear?
What looks like sports gear - like ropes of mountain climbers and the elegant whip of an equestrian, is part of the new bondage, sex toys and accessories collection 'Fifty Shades of Grey' by Lovehoney; the British brand worked closely with the author of the book.
Valentine's Day preparations seem to be worldwide the same; chocolate, lingerie, jewellery or roses are the classical presents. This year, tickets for the cinema are a special gift. The movie 'Fifty Shades of Grey' will be released globally 1 or 2 days before Valentine's Day (14 February) and the pre-sale of the tickets has started here in Austria already! The movie has caused a boom of sex toys (especially for Valentine's Day) which is bespoken in articles like The Telegraph where the owner of Lovehoney states that the sales increase after new movie trailers.
In Vienna, the items of the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' collection are available at the exclusive lingerie store La Petite Coquette (Victoria's Secret, Dita von Teese, Beach Bunny...).
And if you find out on Valentine's Day that your friend doesn't like to be flogged or any form of 'bondage', perhaps you can use the velvet ropes and whip for other (sport) activities too.
