    I Attended A 50 Shades Of Grey BDSM Workshop Last night, I attended a BDSM workshop called “50 Shades of Hot Sex.” I didn’t really learn anything I didn’t know about BDSM already, but I was heartened to see a whole bunch of people who’ve gotten their ideas about BDSM from a terrible book guided by the ever-responsible hand of Babeland, New York’s premiere woman-friendly sex shop. The workshop (which was actually more of a talk) was led by a Babeland employee who’s been active in New York’s BDSM community for quite some time. Looking around, I saw an assortment of much more “regular” looking people than you’d expect at a BDSM workshop, sipping vodka cranberries and paying attention.

    The Ex Makes the Sex Spectacular
    Babeland was founded by two women - in answer to the "lack of women-friendly sex shops" as they so eloquently state on their website. They specialize in high quality toys AND offer educational informational sessions to women (and men) who want to be encouraged while exploring their sexuality. Toys, (I mean friends to hang out with) include: vibrators, adult DVD's, sex books, and dildos. My personal pick is the "Babeland Pocket Rocket"; a discreet, personal vibrator that retails for $17.99. It only requires a single double a battery and is velvety soft to the touch. Let's just say that good things cum (wink, wink) in small packages…

    Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!
    E.L. James’ erotic debut novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, began as Twilight fan fiction. But now it’s a phenom—and just sparked a rich movie deal. The Brit author talks to EW about bondage and best-sellers.
    But the phenomenon behind the glib description, “Mommy Porn”, makes sense when explained by Anne Semans, marketing director at the sex-toy emporium Babeland: “Sexual desire is something that really ebbs and flows in a woman’s life…and one of the ways you give your sex life a boost is through your erotic imagination.”

    Dildos for Dudes: In Defense of Boy Toys
    When I visited the Babeland in SoHo, sex educator Leah pointed out the many couples shopping together. "Men are really excited to find out that if they want toys that don't look like vaginas, it's an option," she said. "It's a lot less threatening for women."
    She was hopeful men's toys would be mainstreamed into society, given enough time.
    "The world is still adjusting to sex toys being okay," she said. "At the end of the day, if it's on the bedside table, it's offering you a new sensation, a new experience. Ultimately it doesn't matter if people think it's strange, because it feels really good."

    The Best Two Things to Keep in Your Bedside Table
    “Every couple needs a toy they can share—it practically guarantees orgasm,” says Redbook columnist Hilda Hutcherson, MD, an ob/gyn and a professor at Columbia University. She recommends a finger vibrator like the Ipo Finger Vibe from Picobong ($44, babeland.com) because it feels much more natural than a bulky vibrator.
