Even if having sex in a helicopter isn’t a financial option for you, you have choices.
With the final Fifty Shades movie coming out this Friday, now’s as good a time as any to look back at all the sex toys the franchise has featured over the years. From vanilla blindfolding trysts to more advanced Ben Wa ball usage, here are some of the most memorable sex toys from the Fifty Shades of Grey books…and exactly where you can buy them.
1. Riding Crop
Where you see it: In Fifty Shades of Grey.
Uncoiling from the floor, rising lazily, like a jungle cat, he points the end of the riding crop at my navel, leisurely circling it — tantalizing me.
What it is: A hard, thin whip with a small leather tip for spanking. Yep, it’s the same thing you see equestrians prodding horses with.
If you’ve got an emotionally withholding millionaire bankrolling your sex toys:
2. Ben Wa Balls
Where you see them: In Fifty Shades of Grey, Ana bends over, grabs her ankles, and Christian inserts the Ben Wa balls into her vagina. Ana then has to walk around and get water, all the while feeling the weight of the balls moving around inside her. In Fifty Shades Darker, Ana wears the same Ben Wa balls to the masquerade.
What they are: Weighted kegel balls that you insert inside your vagina during foreplay. Some people even use them to regain pelvic muscle tone after injury or childbirth.
If you’ve got the financial means for a separate sex dungeon:
Where you see it: In Fifty Shades of Grey. Christian blindfolds Ana and masturbates her with a riding crop ’til she orgasms.
What it is: Anything that covers your eyes. This sensory deprivation puts you at the whim of your partner.
If you can brag about making 100,000 an hour:
Where you see them: In Fifty Shades Freed. Christian handcuffs Ana’s ankles to her wrists and then fucks her while she is trussed up like a turkey.
What they are: Wrist restraints for classic BDSM play. You can attach both wrists to each other, to a bed post, or to your ankles like Ana if you’re feeling extra creative. Just make sure you don’t lose the key.
If you can afford a lawyer to draft up sex contracts for you:
5. Spreader Bar
Where you see it: In Fifty Shades Darker.
He begins a slow and sensual assault, his tongue swirling around and around while his fingers move inside me. Because I can’t close my legs, or move, it’s intense, really intense. My back arches as I try to absorb the sensations.
What it is: A bar that goes on between your feet and keeps your ankles apart. As a bonus, it can also bring your wrists down to your feet and lock them in place.
If you can buy your ex-lover’s salon just for kicks:
6. Nipple Clamps
Where you see them: In Fifty Shades Darker.
My body is building, building to an explosion — with the relentless vibrations and the sweet, sweet torture of my nipples. Holy hell. It will be too intense. His hands move from my hips, down and around, slick and oiled, touching, feeling, kneading my skin — kneading my behind.
What they are: Metal clamps applied to the nipples for increased sensation. The tightness can usually be adjusted and weights can sometimes be added to the chain for extra pain (if you’re into that.)
If having sex in a helicopter is, like, a financial possibility for you:
7. Butt Plug
Where you see it: In Fifty Shades Freed. Christian inserts a small butt plug in Ana and then they have vaginal sex. After Ana has three orgasms, Christian pulls the plug out and Ana orgasms again from the sensation.
What it is: A sex toy meant to be inserted into the anus. It’s called a “plug” because it has a flared base that is wider than the insertable portion so you can remove it without it getting sucked up into your body. Unlike the vagina, toys can get lost in your butt, so make sure to only use butt-specific toys lest you wind up in the ER!
If you own your own publishing house at 25 like Ana:
8. The Wand
Where you see it: In Fifty Shades Freed.
He holds it against my chest, and it feels like a large ball-like object vibrating against me. I shiver as it moves across my skin, down between my breasts, across to first one, then the other nipple, and I’m awash with sensation, tingling everywhere….
What it is: A large vibrator meant for clitoral stimulation. Wand-style vibrators usually refer to the OG classic, the Magic Wand, though the shape and function have evolved into a popular style for vibrators. These bulky vibrators are usually corded and plug into a wall (hence the power) though newer models are also available in cordless rechargeable versions.
