We Asked You To Recreate Scenes From 50 Shades of Grey
Even if your book club tends to finish more bottles of wine than books, at some point there's probably been a page-turner none of you have wanted to put down.
But we bet your book club is nothing like the one in the upcoming movie of the same name...
Starring Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda, Book Club follows a group of friends whose lives are totally transformed while reading E L James's erotic phenomenon, Fifty Shades of Grey.
To celebrate the release of the film, we asked you to indulge in some Red Room-inspired revelry of your own (with the help of a few sexy toys and accessories from our official Fifty Shades range) then tell us all about it.
And it turns out you had plenty to say! Here are a few highlights from your thwack-by-thwack accounts.
Book Club opens in UK cinemas today.
You tried: nipple clamps
"These are for both pleasure and pain." Christian murmurs. Christian releases the first clamp and then the other, causing my nipples to sing with a surge of sweet, sweet pain... but it's oh-so good.
"The sweet pinch was like nothing I had felt before. I was throbbing, but it was arousing at the same time. I could feel the weight of them pulling with the slightest swing.
"He quickly held the vibrator against my clit, working it with my every movement. My legs were trembling as he played until I reached the point of climax.
"Before I knew it was over and I was being untied, left wanting more – wanting him!"

You tried: restraints
I am naked and shackled, spread-eagled on a large four-poster bed.
"We used ankle restraints and a spreader bar. Attempting the spreader bar scene involved flipping my wife from her back on to her front and pulling up on to all fours to have sex – it may not have gone as smoothly as the film did but it went as well as expected and was very intense.
"As I stood behind my wife she moved her body in motion with me as I flipped the bar over and pulled her up into position.
"From my point of view using restraints during sex does add a kinky feel to the session. It does bring a certain amount of power to me – there is an exciting edge to restraining my wife's ankles."
You tried: pleasure balls
I flush from the constant movement of the silver balls. They weigh down inside me, massaging me internally and make me needy, needy for sex.
"The first thing I thought was 'OMG they're heavy!' I had no idea how they were going to stay in place.
"And I wasn't wrong – it wasn't long before they were nestling inside my underwear! I resorted to pretty much shuffling around the room. It did produce a lot of giggles. My huband tried to spank me with the balls inside me but it caused me to lose concentration and they fell out! However despite the comedy antics of the afternoon we still had an extremely hot session.
"So what did I learn? That things look much easier on screen than they are in real life. And that it really doesn't matter if an experiment in the bedroom doesn't go to plan. The important thing is being able to laugh about it and spending some quality adult time with my husband."

You tried: a riding crop
At the touch of leather, I quiver and gasp. He flicks the crop and it hits that sweet spot with a sharp slap, until finally, that's it - I can take no more - and I come, gloriously, shouting my release.
"My OH starts to trace the crop all over my body, sending shivers down my spine.
"I particularly like getting my nipples hit with the crop – it hurts, but the rush of pleasure after the stinging bite of the crop feels so good.
"He traces the crop slowly down my back, stopping at the base of my spine. He waits a moment (it feel like ages), then whack, the crop makes contact with my bottom and it is delightfully painful. He asks if I like it, to which I reply, 'Yes, Sir'."
