You really can't escape the phenomenon that is Fifty Shades Of Grey. It's mentioned on the TV and the radio. The trilogy has been ranked number 1, 2 and 3 on the New York Times Bestseller list. The author has shown up on talk shows, and recently got paid very nicely as another printing of the book--750,000 more copies, to go with the original run of 250,000--got under way. Universal has bought the movie rights, and everyone is having fun speculating on who might get the lead roles. (Jennifer Love Hewitt has come out and said she'd love to play the female lead. While I have nothing against Love being spanked--heck, I'd be happy to do it myself--I can't help but feel that she's totally wrong for the part of Anastasia. Plus, at 33, Love is probably too old for the part. Hollywood is probably better off finding two unknowns for the leads.)
With all that going on, some of you may be wondering how to get in on all the fun. Maybe you're a closet spanko--you've thought about it, fantasized about it, but have never had the nerve to actually do anything about it. Curiosity is getting the better of you.
Well, if you live in Minnesota--and more specifically, the Minneapolis/St. Paul and suburbs area--might I suggest a place called Smitten Kitten?
Smitten Kitten is an adult shop located on 30th and Lyndale Ave. South near Minnepolis. Get that old image of "an adult store" out of your head. The staff is friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable and--to quote from an ad they ran about a year ago--they don't sell crap, just quality products. And they're well stocked on all things Grey.
If you've been looking for copies of the book, they have them. And if you're looking to get into a little more than just spanking, they have all the accessories to make your Grey dreams come true. You can go to their store or order online. For products, address, and business hours, check them out online at:
And in case you're wondering--no, I don't have a deal with the store owner; no, I won't be there giving autographs or demonstrations (although I rather like the idea). No, my only interest is to see more Minnesotans begin to explre the wonderful world of adult spanking.....and certainly, this is one way to get started.
