Fifty Shades of Grey: The Sheets!

Just when I thought the Fifty Shades trend couldn’t get any weirder, what with the books flying off the shelves, and the movie rights being sold (how is it not going to be hardcore pornography?)… it gets weirder.

Thanks to AlexisSBCA, I happened on a new and horrifying fact… there’s going to be Fifty Shades merchandise!  Speculating on whether it would be grey ties, branded bondage gear, or Inner Goddess A Day calendars was fun, but the truth is more bizarre than I thought.

There could be lingerie/sleepwear, which is not unexpected.   “Adult products”, again, no biggie.  Perfume and beauty products, a little weirder.  Jewelry too.  But my brain pretty much overloaded when we got to home furnishings and stationery being mentioned.  Home furnishings?  What, like couches with built in rings for handcuffs?  Whip/umbrella stands?  And what the heck would the stationery be like?  I mean, my imagination is failing me here, unless we’re talking ridiculous stuff like you see at adult stores for bachelorette parties.  And even then, stationery?

Here’s hoping that this will be a short lived trend, but I’m not so sure…  there’s already a “bedside companion” book out, showing you how to have sex Fifty Shades-style.

Sigh.
