Are we OVER Fifty Shades of Grey yet???
While I’m super excited that moms everywhere are suddenly feeling encouraged to get their freak on, I’m concerned the market has reached a mommy porn level of oversaturation.
This week, The Hollywood Reporter shared the news that we may soon be able to purchase Fifty Shades of Grey lingerie, fragrances, beauty products and more.
Caroline Mickler will be the global licensing agent for merchandise based on the franchise.
But that’s not all.
The news is everywhere. We’re seeing reports of sales of a variety of products, such as clothes line rope. In fact, rope necktie sales are on a major spike and the faint hearted among you REALLY don’t want to know why.
And with a a film on the way, chances are things are about to get yet worse.
Have you read this book? Do you also see a point in…too much…on the horizon?
And what is it we love about all these stories where a shy young virgin is seduced by a dangerous older man? It’s Jane Eyre all over again. And it fulfills our crazy fantasy about changing a man into a happily ever after scenario – even though it was his arrogance and forbidden dynamic that had attracted us to him in the first place.
But then again, this is the stuff of super hot fantasy – and who can’t use a little more play in their lives?
