It looks like 50 Shades of Grey is here to stay. Like it, hate it, or love it, it's certainly brought a certain type of kink out of the dark bedroom and into the mainstream.
According to Dr. Logan Levkoff in this edition of MomEd: In The Bedroom, domination is a common fantasy for women. We're so "in charge" in so many aspects of our lives that it may feel good to put a partner in charge of what happens sexually.
Let's say the book has you all hot and bothered and you want to bring some dom-sub play into your household, but the thought of walking into a sex shop for the toys involved makes you blush to your toes. Good news! You can find plenty of fun, erotic toys in an innocent trip to Target and no one will know. See the details or read below (video after the jump).
Here's your dom-sub fantasy shopping list:
Sleep mask: Also makes a comfy blindfold for "sensation play."
Bobby pins: Inexpensive nipple clamps.
Ping-pong paddle: Spanking device.
Silicon pastry brush: Nice for sensation play, plus I'm sure you can come up with more uses....
Nylons: Restraints that feel nice against the skin and won't leave marks.
Toss all that in your cart and you can access your "inner goddess" while looking innnocent as a spring lamb should you run into your priest, the PTO president or even your mother-in-law.
Have you explored fantasy with your partner?
