Although the Fifty Shades of Grey series has gotten a lot of criticism, one thing even critics can’t deny is the series’ influence on sexual curiosity. A huge chunk of the audience learned about the use of sex toys from the movie. Here are the five that were used in the film Fifty Shades:
Blindfolds are the first objects used by Christian on Ana. As she cannot see, she has to rely on her other senses to give her an immediate response. Since sight registers what will happen, being blind to it makes you more aware of your surroundings. That’s why blindfolds are the easiest and most frequent used objects to spice up the bedtime activities.
In the movie, Christian whips Ana into a frenzy using a flogger. Just as the heroine learns about new instruments for pleasure, we also are educated about the toys of the bedroom. Floggers are made up of short handles with soft, supple tassels that tease the skin more than harm it.
Christian Grey uses vaginal beads on Ana before they attend a party. Ana feels odd having balls inside her(pun intended) but follows her lover’s instruction to not remove them. She gets a sensory experience that she has never felt before. Vaginal beads are also known as Ben Wa Balls or Geisha Balls. They are called so because they cause the bearer to experience the weight of the balls which leads them to have contractions from the movements and gives them pleasure.
“What are Butt Plugs?” Ana asked Christian in their contractual discussion. Christian doesn’t explain, but we will. Butt Plugs can be used by both men and women to literally plug their butts. Since the anal area is very sensitive, having something filling it up only sensitizes the bearer.
Christian uses a wand vibrator on Ana while in a practice known as “orgasm denial.” The dominant partner brings his partner to the brink of orgasm but does not give his partner the pleasure. He does this multiple times creating a frustration to the receiver. The dominant partner only gives the pleasure when the other submits to his will.
