New Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer TONIGHT!

Update 11/14: Our new trailer is finally here. Quick, watch it!

So how does it measure up? The seduction, the sighs, the romance, and the amount of bare skin in this trailer – WOW! We love everything about it! All of the romantic scenes have us on the edge of our seat, waiting for that moment they truly connect. While we didn’t get a new song per se, we still have that haunting feeling of excitement with this remix of deeper bass and even sexier beats. The only bad thing? We already want more!

New Look

Tonight’s the night! As promised by the official Fifty Shades of Grey twitter, we’ll be seeing a new trailer for the movie this evening! Tonight at 9|8c, a new Fifty Shades Trailer will air during the new episode of Scandal.

July 24: We are still Crazy in Love with the first Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Trailer we saw in July. The last full trailer gave us Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” a glimpse of innocent beginnings, and a yearning for more!

Tune in tonight to see that new clip! We can’t wait!

5 Reasons to Be Excited for Fifty Shades of Grey the Movie (Even if you’re not a fan of the novel!)

After the trailer’s initial release in July, Fifty Shades of Grey the movie quickly became the most viewed trailer of the summer! But if you’re not a loving fan of the books, you might be wondering what all the hype is about. Whether you are someone who hasn’t read the books, or are a die-hard Fifty Shades of Grey fan you should be excited for the movie and here’s why!

 

Go Grey!

The number of things you’ll take home from this movie is limitless! (And we’re not just talking about wet panties!) We’re hoping director Sam Taylor-Johnson goes above and beyond with Ana’s first time in Christian Grey’s Red Room of Pain. We know we’re going to see sexy positions and ideas that we haven’t tried yet!

This film opens the perfect opportunity to try new ways to please yourself! You can also ask your lover about a sexy new move they would like to try. That new move could be a position for lovemaking, or the introduction of a new bedroom toy. The possibilities are endless!

 

Book to Movie Comparisons

For die-hard Fifty Shades of Grey fans, comparisons between the book and the movie will be paramount. Quite often, movie renditions of our favorite novels fall short – but will Fifty Shades the movie be a rule or exception?

There have already been compromises in terms of cast, but this might mean we get the scenes we’ve been waiting for. While some of us are head over heels for Jamie Dornan – the rest of us may have seen someone more rough and rugged in the role of Christian Grey. Word around here is that Matt Bomer, or Charlie Hunnam would’ve made a hot Mr. Grey. Who would you pick?

Even for those who aren’t huge fans of the series, it will be interesting to see how the movie compares to your expectations and feelings about the book. You’ve probably heard plenty of things about the book – will the movie fulfill these rumors?

 

This One is Going to be HOT

Let’s be honest. Sexy movies – at least those made for women and couples – are slim pickings. Yeah, we have Magic Mike, 9 ½ Weeks, and Sliver; but what else?
Movies about romance? We could name a thousand! But movies about women experiencing sexual pleasure? Those films are few and far between!

Fear not! Fifty Shades of Grey the movie is going to rock the foundations of what we consider ‘sexy’ movies. We predict that upon this movie’s success, other companies will scramble to produce more breath-catching media for the general public. We see a lot more chains, cuffs, and crops in the near future.

 

Valentines Weekend Fun

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie will be released on a Friday, which could make a sexy Valentine’s Saturday for those of us going it alone, or with a partner. Grab a matinee movie showing Saturday afternoon, and then spend all evening in bed with a blindfold, some handcuffs, and a toy (or lover)!

The movie also provides great Valentine’s Day gift ideas, especially if your lover has previously expressed interest in kinky gear. Start slow with light sensation play by using a feather tickler or kissable body paint. You can also try a beginner S&M kit. More experienced kinksters can go for more hardcore gear like Edge’s heavy duty leather cuffs or a collar with adjustable nipple clamps.

 

This soundtrack Will be Music to Your Ears!

 

One of the most essential parts of the perfect movie is the music, and so far we’ve heard great things about the soundtrack. If we get more songs from Beyonce or other big time artists, we really are going to be “Crazy in Love” with the Fifty Shades of Grey movie! We suspect this record will drop shortly before the movie premieres in theaters. You can bet we’ll have that album playing non-stop through February 13th!

What Do Women Want!?

There’s a new book getting lots of buzz, and it’s called What Do Women Want? Adventures in the Science of Female Desire . In the book, author Daniel Bergner uses scientific research to back up his argument that female sexual desire is more complex than we could even imagine. When it comes to desire, Bergner states that desire starts in the same place for both men and women, but a woman’s desire declines more steeply than her man’s does. This deep, steep decline in desire is what contributes to why it’s so dang difficult to keep sex hot (or even just happening) in a long-term relationship. He says that society as a whole downplays the experience of women’s desire, arousal and orgasm.

The problem for men and for women is that magazines and mainstream media tell us that we’re supposed to continue having the same sex we had sex when we first met our partners. However, for most of us, after a year or two of all-out sex, the sizzle fizzles, and we start to scramble and search for ways to stroke the fires of (making) love. Read more

The Art of Gagging

Cock blocking is one thing, but when a cock blocks your air passage that’s a totally different story. While it’s socially acceptable to talk about the former, when it comes to discussing the latter, the act of gagging is something we all keep rather quiet about. Except back in 80’s, when Valley Girl was super cool and the phrase “gag me with a spoon” was popular. Even though it basically translated to “I just want to barf,” it brought gagging, as a concept, into the mainstream vernacular.

The fact that when it comes to sex, we’re rather quiet about gagging is somewhat ironic. Especially since gagging can be noisy and distracting.

On the one hand, gagging can be a total turn off during sexy times, and on the other hand it can be a hot part of oral sex. Gagging happens when something is shoved down, or gets lodged in, the back of our throat. It’s our bodies’ way of keeping us breathing. During sex, gagging most often (and loudly) occurs during the act of the blowjob. Gagging can also be a kinky part of hardcore play (think ball gag). Read more

Let’s Talk Taboo

I get asked a lot of questions, but the most popular question of all (like in a galaxy far away from all others) is all about anal, or as I like to say, “ur”anus. From how to do the anal, to why men like it, it’s as if every few minutes someone, somewhere has ass on their mind.

This is not a bad thing, although for many years ass and the things that go in, or come out of it, have been seen as very dirty indeed.

In an unscientific poll of people I know, I asked why anal sex is such a popular topic and why people thought I was still getting so many questions about butt play. A majority vote said it’s because anal sex is still taboo. And then there was the good point that whatever sex education is taught in school does not highlight (or even touch upon) the anus.

Taboo is cool. But there are lots of things that are taboo that are popular and still not talked about. So, let’s talk about them. Shall we?

The Different Types of Relationships

Even before the Internet gave us Facebook, and Facebook gave us the “it’s complicated” relationship status, it seemed like relationships were black and white, and not 50 Shades of Grey. Truth is, romantic relationships have varied over the centuries, but now, thanks to reality TV and the interwebs, alternative lifestyles aren’t all that far out.
So, how can you frankly navigate the ocean of love?

(Serial) Monogamy: Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn

Monogamy generally refers to the marriage of two human beings in a committed relationship. The couple is expected to get all, or most, of their needs met (and definitely their sexual needs) from one another and no one else…ever. If that doesn’t work out, then in the words of Jay-Z, it’s on to the next one.

Bondage for Beginners

When you think about bondage, do you think about being tied up or doing the tying?

Bondage isn’t just about restricting movement, although it IS about restricting movement. Bondage is also about experimenting with power, fantasy, pleasure, limitations, trust, vulnerability and letting go. Bondage is about limiting movement and feeling moved at the same time. Some people use bondage to keep their long term relationship feeling alive, and some people like the adrenaline rush of the power, or the struggle. Other people just like being restrained, and enjoy a little sensory deprivation every once in a while.

Whatever gets you going, bondage is difficult to do alone, meaning it requires a partner to help you get in, or out of, the places you’ll be tied. Sometimes it’s fun to be the one in charge (and doing the tying up), and sometimes its fun to let someone else be in charge (and get tied up), and it’s okay to switch that up. It’s also okay to prefer to be the active partner, or top, or the passive partner, or bottom. No matter what you like, bondage works best with someone you know, trust and can be open and vulnerable with. You need to know that your partner won’t hurt you, or leave you all tied up with no place to go. You want to know that you’re safe, which also means establishing a safe word…just in case.
