1. How E L James Made A Fan's Day - In A Sex Toy Warehouse

    E L James visits Lovehoney

    As the makers of the Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection - a range of toys, bondage, lubes and sensual products based on the erotic trilogy - Lovehoney has been working closely with E L James for some time to ensure everything meets her exacting standards.

    Here's the visit through the lens of E L James and her Instragram! She showcased the current collection and also gave a sneak peek at some new products that will be ready just before the film. Watch this space…



    After some mega fangirling and an epic selife session with staff (E L James has clearly built selfie stamina over the past couple of years!) we were ready to say Laters, Baby and wave Erika off, back to Hollywood where a very special trailer was just about to air…
