Seattle wants a good *SMACK*

We were invited to participate in a Fifty Shades of Grey Soiree in Seattle last week and we had to share some of the highlights! Babeland has been to pretty much every type of sexy event you can imagine over the past twenty years, from the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival to SXSW and beyond. This night was different, though. More than 300 people bought tickets to experience Fifty Shades of Grey brought to life. Among other things, the evening included a Christian Grey and Ana Steele lookalike contest, flogging on a St Andrew's cross, and a "Red Room of Pain". Check out phots from the event here and you can see more sexy images like the one in this post by Eric Rust Photography, too.

Babeland was stationed in the Red Room of Pain, of course. Everyone kept telling us that our room was the most crowded. One of our Sex Educators who was working at the event had lost her voice by the end of the night from talking so much! We were mobbed with visitors; answering questions about how to use restraints and riding crops, and selling vibes, Ben Wa Balls and other accessories. The We-Vibe 3 was very popular.

We had a blast talking to this great group of people who were curious about how to try out scenes from the erotic bestseller. No matter what you think about the Fifty Shades of Grey trend or the quality of the writing in the trilogy, the sex scenes have set fantasies on fire and are inspiring women and men everywhere to try new things. We're thrilled we're able to support and encourage our customers who want to explore new pleasures. Customers started mentioning Fifty Shades of Grey last January and asking for help picking out accessories that were mentioned in it. In April when the paperback was launched, sales of restraints, riding crops, Ben-Wa Ball-type products, and blindfolds took off. If you're ready to make your fantasies a reality here are a few things you might like:

Babeland Satin Bondage Kit:  A black satin mask with long ties that can be used as wrist restraints and two five-foot sashes.

Silcone Smart Balls: Just like the Ben-Wa Balls Ana and Christian use in Ffity Shades of Grey, these gently weighted silicone balls create an amazing sensation.

Kookie Riding Crop: It makes a nice snappy "thwack" and can be easily used by novices and pro's alike.

Fifty Shades of Grey Book and Indulge Your Fantasies Kit: If you're ready to go all the way, this kit has everything you need. It includes Etherea Cuffs, Kandi Kisses vibrator, Luna Beads, and Spank Me Powder, as well as a copy of the first book in the trilogy.

So what do you think? Would you attend a Fifty Shades of Grey Soiree in your town?
