This week is your last chance to get something for Mother’s Day. Sure, you could do flowers…again. Or you could get her something she’ll¬†really¬†enjoy: our award-winnging book,¬†150 SHADES OF PLAY: A Beginner’s Guide to Kink!
Here us out: Mom’s loved the¬†Twilight¬†series, but secretly wished there was more sex in it. Along comes the¬†Fifty Shades¬†series, which is essentially¬†Twilight¬†fan faction, and there’s tons of sex….kinky¬†sex. Moms across the country go gaga for it, so much so that it’s dubbed “mommy porn.”
- Fifty Shades¬†doesn’t tell moms how to incorporate any of this stuff into their own lives
- it doesn’t mention specific quality products or where to get them
- it perpetuates myths about kink
- it even promotes some very dubious (i.e. unsafe) behaviors and techniques
A mom friend of ours recently wrote us, saying she’s been married for a¬†loooooong¬†time and needs some new ideas, asking which book of ours we would recommend. We told her¬†150 SHADES OF PLAY: while it does cover some intense kinky stuff, it also covers the basics; it’s not visually graphic; it has a great sense of humor, which makes it fun and non-intimidating to skim with a husband or partner; it gives readers a vouyeristic look into how extreme some people can get with BDSM which might make them feel more comfortable and confident to try new,¬†mildly¬†kinky things. Because let’s face it: a little toy or light bondage is nothing compared to pony play!
Plus, it just won a 2013 Ippy Award!
So when making the mom in your life a Mother’s Day care package this coming May, remember: flowers are nice, but floggers are nicer.
