Whipping Up A Storm - Lovehoney in Fabulous Magazine!
If you picked up a copy of Fabulous in the Sun on Sunday today, you're likely have to have seen a feature on erotic book sensation and New York Times best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey. Written by London-based author EL James, Fifty Shades is about a bondage loving billionaire and his seduction and training of a female college graduate into his submissive lover.
Alice, Lovehoney's Content and Community Editor, was interviewed as part of the 'Women Breaking the Last Taboo' article based around the book's release. She discussed her role as 'sex-toy fairy' at Lovehoney, the growing popularity of sex toys, and was the perfect example of how you can have a career in the sex industry, without taking your clothes off!
Fifty Shades has opened up a lot of conversation about the role of female desire and sexuality and it's been suggested that it's helping to break down boundaries and encourage women to try new things. In the feature, Alice explained that business is booming, a clear sign that people are more willing to take control of their sexual happiness. Products including the Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator have been consistently popular, while the Sqweel was also named as one of Lovehoney's most popular sex toys.
The interview took place at Eroticon 2012, a one-day conference for sex bloggers and erotic writers that was sponspored by Lovehoney. Held in Bristol and organsied by author Ruby Kiddell, it attracted women from all walks of life, from mothers, students to dominatrixes.
Now you can start your own erotic adventure. Lovehoney are giving away a free bullet vibe worth £9.99 with every copy of Fifty Shades of Grey.
