A third of Lovehoney range stock sells out in under 24 hours
The success of Fifty Shades of Grey has inspired many of us to unleash our inner goddesses, and it looks like this is going to continue for some time.
An official range of ‘pleasure products’ has sold a third of their entire stock, intended to last until Christmas, in only 24 hours after the collection became available for pre-order.
The Lovehoney.co.uk range, which includes floggers, vibrators and handcuffs similar to the ones described in the erotic bestseller, has been so successful extra stock is being shipped in to meet the high demand from couples looking to sex up their Christmas holidays.
The most popular product is the ‘Inner Goddess Silver Balls’, a set of jiggle balls which have sold 6,000 units so far.
Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford said he was overwhelmed by the response, adding: ‘The figures show which pleasure products described in the books have really captured people’s imaginations.
‘A year ago, silver balls were hardly known. Now millions of women want to try them in their bedrooms.
‘Encouraged by the books, couples are buying the Official Fifty Shades of Grey sex toys and bondage items for Christmas presents in unprecedented numbers. It looks like a lot of British couples will spend Boxing Day handcuffed to the bed!’
Author EL James worked with designers to ensure the products were as close to the ones used in the trilogy as possible.
She said: ‘This range is what I always imagined while I was writing Fifty Shades of Grey. I am so excited that the toys I described in the books have come to life and can now be enjoyed around the world.’
Prices range from £11.99 – £54.99.
