LOS ANGELES — When news hit this week that the male star of the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, Jamie Dornan, admitted to visiting SM clubs for “research” on the film adaptation of the popular E.L. James novel, it reminded us how much the modern story of kink has slipped into daily life.
Keeping with what’s trending in the mainstream, lifestyle and fashion magazine Von Gutenberg has released a new “Fifty Ways To Please Your Lover" collection through its couture division.
The new line of Von Gutenberg items for adults “skirt the boundaries of fetish, add kink to bedroom fun and bring a friskiness to flirting and foreplay,” a sales rep said.
All the pieces in the collection are made from hypoallergenic materials, and are both sturdy and aesthetically alluring.
The line includes an English Tawse, blindfolds, kits with beginner and more advanced kink items, collars and cuffs for various body parts, corsets, electro-play pieces — and even strait jackets.
Similar to Von Gutenberg’s existing collection of latex outfits and other fantasy couture, it says its new “Fifty Shades”-inspired line caters to the kink connoisseur as well as the novice.
