Official '50 Shades of Grey' Sex Toys Are Coming: Will Ian Somerhalder Sell Them?


soft limits tie lovehoneyBesides being one of the most successful, buzzworthy, and oh yeah, X-rated books of 2012, Fifty Shades of Grey is a CASH COW. Products based on the books have been popping out of the woodwork for months now, so it's really no surprise that there's now a Fifty Shades sex toy line from Lovehoney, which will be available in the U.S. on April 8. What is especially intriguing, however, is that this line is the official one -- developed with E.L. James!

Yup, Lovehoney "worked closely with E.L. James to make sure the stylish, high quality range perfectly recreates the items used by Ana and her billionaire lover Christian Grey." She's even said of it, "This range is what I always imagined while I was writing Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m so excited that the toys I described in the books have come to life and can now be enjoyed around the world." Hot! Erika even let Lovehoney use some key phrases from Christian and Ana's story ...

The press release for the toys is pleased to introduce "the signature Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls, the Submit to Me First Time Bondage Kit, and the Twitchy Palm Spanking Paddle.” Other products currently on sale in the U.K. include the "We Aim to Please Vibrating Bullet" and "Charlie Tango Classic Vibrator." Wow, gotta love the tie-ins to actual buzzwords from the books, right? That definitely adds a certain ... je ne sais quoi to the toys.

Maybe the official endorsement from the woman who actually invented the fantasy will make them even hotter to use? At the very least, hopefully it makes them a bit more accessible for women who would otherwise shy away from experimenting with something like a set of, err, well, pleasure balls! 

And by the way, as long as there are going to be major tie-ins from the book, I wouldn't be surprised if the line made a play to capitalize on the film, too ... That could mean Ian Somerhalder becoming the "brand ambassador" for the line! Ha! I'm not sure I see that happening in the near future, but Fifty fans can dream ... 

Are you intrigued by this sex toy line?

I think a toy collection is genius idea. I, I'm sure like most women already have a collection but making one that goes along with the books is brilliant. This collection is starting a revolution. Hot & horny housewives & happy husbands. Whether married or not I will say I enjoy playing solo. So YES PLEASE GET THIS COLLECTION OUT!!!!! XXX JEN

I don't understand how they're different from other toys, other than being printed with a fancy name on them...

I stocked it for a short time and it's really not that great. Was quite disappointed with the flogger and a few other items. Can get cheaper alternatives that are waaaaaay better quality

It's been available in Australia since January

Its no different to the other cheap tack they sell, except you pay more for the label.
