Fifty Shades of Grey (Film)

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!  I hope you were all able to enjoy this love filled day.  I’ve had a pretty amazing day myself.  I have just returned home after seeing Fifty Shades of Grey at my local AMC theater.  I haven’t written a blog post in a while.  I suppose I’ve been lazy and resorting to Tumblr for any text posts.

I would like to start this with saying that I thoroughly enjoyed all three installments of the Fifty Shades of Grey novels.  When they were released I wasted no time in getting them and I spent a day and a half reading through the trilogy.  I can’t believe it has been four years since the books have been out.  Which leads us to today.  Opening weekend of the movie.

I have heard and read all the criticism there is around this book.  Everyone has an opinion.  What is an absolute fact, it’s just a story.  One hundred percent fiction.  What you choose to take from the book is clearly based on your own connection with the book.   If you want to believe this book is glamorizing abusive relationships, that is completely your opinion.  If you think it is a great love story, that is also your opinion.  Two people can look at the same piece of artwork and have completely different thoughts on what it means, and what it portrays.  The only person who knows for sure what the art is, is the artist.

With that being said, I really enjoyed the movie.  I think the movie portrayal nailed it right on the head of the characteristics of each person in the book.  You feel the awkwardness.  You feel the tension.  You feel the pain with each cracking sound of the leather belt that hits her skin.

There was one scene in particular the movie could have explained more.  In the book as Ana is getting dressed to go with Christian to his parents house for dinner, she can not find her panties.  In the movie you see her look around a dark room, notices a new dress laid out for her.  She walks downstairs and he makes a comment asking her if she is sure she has everything.  I might have been the only one in the audience to chuckle at that.  Thanks to reading the book first!

I enjoyed the humor in the movie.  Which may be odd to some because of the sexual theme of the story line.  I feel that if you haven’t read all three books then you will never understand the complete picture of the story.  There’s more to this than just sex.  More to it than just getting tied up and spanked or being flogged.  It really is a love story.  That is what I personally take from the trilogy and from the movie.

Then ending of the film is a cliff hanger.  I don’t want to spoil it too much for those who have not seen it yet.  It wasn’t shocking to me that there would be a cliff hanger.  There are three books!!  I personally was just shocked as to what point it had ended.  I am definitely ready to see the sequel.  I have not heard nor read anything about a release date or if it has even started production yet.

One last thing I would like to add, please don’t go see this with a bunch of your girlfriends and then be the ones to giggle in the audience every time someone says the word, fuck.  It is truly fucking annoying.  🙂

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  If you have any questions or would like to discuss your thoughts on the books or movie, please feel free to leave a comment below or you can find me on Twitter & Tumblr.

Deep Throat

I had a interesting/random conversation with a customer today.  He was an older gentleman.  He came in and was walking around and not really looking at anything.  I asked if he needed help finding anything.  He looked at me and smiled, and said, “you probably don’t have what I’m looking for.”  Go ahead and ask, I tell him.  He began telling me he’s looking for a movie, and it’s at least 40 years old.  I walk with him over to our classics section and I asked if he knew the name of it.  He said it was called Deep Throat.  I grabbed it and showed it to him.  He smiled even more.  He looked at the cover for a while, then looked at the back.  He said it was out of his price range at the moment, and I told him we always carry it if he would like to come back some other time.  He began talking to me about it.

He said, “I saw this forty years ago in the theater.  You weren’t even a thought in your mama’s mind!”  I chuckled.  “Not too long after I seen it, it was taken out of the theater, and the theater had closed down.  I later learned that it was taken off the shelves completely.”  I nodded along with him.  Being “young” in his eye, I assume he thought I didn’t know my porn history!  I told him I heard about the controversy of it all.  He asked, “There’s worse stuff out there night, right?” I nodded in agreement again.  “My how times have changed.”, he said.  He then told me he might be back for it..(if he couldn’t find it cheaper, of course)..and told me to have a great day.

It’s so strange how that movie back then was considered so taboo.  If you watched it now, you would probably find it dull compared to some of the hardcore movies and kinks out there now.

I definitely recommend seeing it if you haven’t!  If you’re a porn addict, like myself, you will enjoy the history of it.  It’s like being a movie buff and not seeing classics such as, The Godfather, or Casablanca.

And yes, the above photo is of me rocking my Deep Throat t-shirt!

“The End. And Deep Throat to you all.”

The Rabbit

“What is the most popular toy you sell?”  The answer, the rabbit.  There are many variations of this toy.  Different colors, names, sizes, material, shapes, etc.  I can personally vouch for this toy as being one of the best sex toys ever made.

I got my first rabbit in 2006.  I was intimidated by it at first.  I didn’t know what the big fuss was about it.  It was pink and white.  With white beads inside.  I waited for a day off to try it.  I wanted to be relaxed and home alone.  Took it out of the box and cleaned it.  Which I should say, you should always do before you use a new toy, because you never know if the package had been opened prior to you buying it!  Popped in a porn to watch and sat there with the toy just looking at it.  I turned the vibration part on and played around with the different speeds.  It is very powerful, and to me, the low speed felt high!  Then I messed around with the rotation.  It also has different speeds of rotating.  As I used it, I kept the rotation part off.  It was amazing on vibration alone.  Once I turned on the rotation, I was done in under a minute.  Also, the bunny ears for the clit stimulation were so powerful it would drive any woman over edge.  I can’t believe that such a toy would make me feel weak, in a good way!  I remember not using it for a while because it was just too much for me at that time.  A few weeks passed and I pulled out Mr Bunny.  Yes, I gave it a name.  Pretty soon it became my go-to for a great orgasm.  I used it very frequently.  I admit I turned down sex a few times because I enjoyed being alone and using the rabbit.  I then let my boyfriend use it on me.  His facial expressions were quite priceless when he seen what it did to me.  When it was his “turn” I was exhausted already!  Needless to say that time was one for the books!!  I ended up getting rid of the rabbit because I felt that I had become too attached to it.  Perhaps addicted to it?  I knew that even if I kept it in the house I would eventually give in and use it.  What can I say, my will power was shot!

So when men and women come in the store and ask me what I recommend, I always say the rabbit.  Like I said previously there are probably close to hundreds of different rabbits.  Lots of toys that vibrate, rotate, and have some sort of “bunny ears” for clitoral stimulation.  Prices do vary on them as well.  A good rabbit can cost you between $60-$120.  I assure you it is more than worth it.  Perfect for couples and or solo.

I also suggest to use a lubrication, if necessary.  You never want to use a toy if you’re not sufficiently lubricated.  Also make sure you clean your toys after every use and dry them.  If you don’t clean your toys you could get a bacteria infection.  Buy yourself a toy cleaner, they are only $6-$10 and well worth the money spent.
