More Women Purchasing Bondage Material

The book “Fifty Shades of Gray” has been getting a lot of attention lately for being a smoldering tale in which the heroine employs rope for S&M play. Hardware stores in New York are seeing a rise in the sale of rope, presumably to be used as bondage material in the bedroom.

It’s not just any rope that women are purchasing, it’s typically a soft cotton “clothes-line” rope. It makes sense, because I wouldn’t want to be tied up with a rough, prickly rope in the bedroom.

Hardware stores in New York have seen a definite increase of sales of this rope in the past six months, and many of those sales have been to women. There are also a few men buying the goods, but the increase in sales to women are what have the store owners raising their eyebrows.

It’s not only hardware stores that are seeing an increase in bondage purchases. Online stores that offer kinky treats are seeing an 81% increase in their bondage sales, and some places even offer a book/bondage package.

Though I’ve heard of this book, I haven’t really paid that much attention to it and haven’t sought it out to read it. After hearing about these sales, I can’t help but wonder what is written in that book that would cause such a sudden change in attitude toward bondage.

It must be hot. I think I need to go download some reading material onto my Kindle.
