Fifty Shades of Grey has gotten plenty of people talking about female pleasure. It's also been a boon for business.
Sales of the book are expected to surpass 20 million this week. Now hotels are capitalizing on the fantasy with special Fifty Shades of Grey vacation packages. Virgin Atlantic is also jumping on the BDSM bandwagon, announcing Monday that it will be offering Fifty as an audio book on its flights.
This follows the recent sales explosion of vibrators in drugstores and Walmart (and presumed explosion of the use of sex toys) all over the U.S. Is consumer demand from women who are unfulfilled in the bedroom fueling the mainstreaming of female pleasure and erotica? Or has Fifty Shades of Grey made women feel more comfortable expressing and fulfilling their sexual fantasies?
