Fifty Shades of Christmas Pleasure

The gift that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving...

Christmas is no longer all about couples. This time of year can be for everyone what with the unneeded stress and pressure of doing everything right and on time, it’s time to take a step back from tradition and do something for yourself for once. And if you’re in a relationship, the time to spice things up in the bedroom is now.

Pleasuring yourself is great and isn’t spoken about nearly enough. It makes you feel amazing, it takes your stresses away, and it makes you a happier person all together by releasing those all important endorphins. For singletons this Christmas, the only partner you need this festive period is a nifty pleasure toy to keep you company.

“Female masturbation has always had a stigma surrounding it. Everyone does it, yet no one wants to admit that they do.”

With the new Fifty Shades of Grey film ‘Freed’ due to be released in the February of next year, author E.L James has worked closely with adult toy and lingerie website LoveHoney to make a sophisticated collection of bondage, sex toys and accessories. Introducing Fifty Shades of Grey: The Official Pleasure Collection.

The collection includes sex toys for him and for her as well as couple toys, as you don’t just have to be single to experience the pleasure, and bondage kits. There are even masquerade masks and Fifty Shades of Grey silky lubricant available to purchase. Who wouldn’t want to feel like they’re living the heated book collection for real? It’s just a shame that you won’t have a real life Christian Grey to live it with you, unless you are Anastasia Steele.

Not only is this a great gift to treat yourself with this Christmas, if you are in a relationship and looking to heat things up in the bedroom, this is the absolute perfect gift to surprise your loved one with on Christmas day. Maybe not something you would exchange at dinner around a table full of family, but something to save until the wind-down, when your special someone thinks that all the presents are over with for this year.

Female masturbation has always had a stigma surrounding it. Everyone does it, yet no one wants to admit that they do. Even the words ‘sex toy’ have people turning their noses up and scoffing at how tragically crude it is to imagine someone using them. But the truth is, there is nothing wrong with it and we need to learn to be more open with our pleasuring and embrace self-pleasure just as much as men do. In the world of men, masturbation is praised and seen as the norm, so why do women feel so compelled to hide something so natural?

Well, that time is no more. With the rise of erotic novels and heightened discussion over social media, women empowerment is stronger than ever meaning that masturbation is no longer something we need to keep to ourselves. The commercial impact has grown with the amount of sex toys and different ways to pleasure yourself being advertised everywhere.

So don’t feel like you have to miss out this Christmas. Treat yourself to something fun and exhilarating to get you through this festive season. You won’t regret it.
