Last week saw the release of the steamy fifth book from international best-selling author, E L James.
Darker retells the erotic rollercoaster ride that was Fifty Shades Darker, but this time from the perspective of its tortured and enigmatic male lead, Christian Grey himself.
Though we get some exhilarating new insights into the sexy scenes that we know and love, we also learn more about Christian's tangled relationships with Elena, Leila, and his mother, as well as greater understanding of how a 27-year-old got that damn rich.
We all know that sex is wonderful. It’s the bomb. It’s our jam.
But, even in the most heavenly of sex lives, there are times when things don’t go quite according to plan.
From lost condoms, to unsettling noises, to miscommunications in what you want, there are a ton of situations where things go from, ‘Oh, yes!’ to ‘Oh, no…’ in the blink of an eye.
With this in mind, and with season 7 of HBO’s sex-and-swords spectacular, Game of Thrones, having made its explosive Stateside debut last night, we’re here to tell you all about those moments - with the help of the characters of Westeros, that is.
Danaerys, Tyrion, Jon Snow, and all your favourite loveable scamps (read: bloodthirsty horn dogs) are here to show you that you're not alone in those awkward times. At least, they were at the end of season 6. By the end of the first episode, it's anyone's game, really.
At last, the long-awaited day has arrived: Fifty Shades Darker has been released in cinemas!
The second film based on E L James' best-selling erotic novels that brought BDSM to the masses, it stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Ana Steele and Christian Grey as they try to rekindle the romance that ended so abruptly in Fifty Shades of Grey.
Fans of the franchise have eagerly anticipated the cinematic interpretation of Fifty Shades Darker, with its even more intense storyline and kinkier-than-ever bondage play - and it's certainly lived up to the hype.
The sex is steamier, the plot more intriguing, and we were thrilled to get a longer look at the many sex toys in Christian's impressive Red Room collection.
So - in the name of research, of course - we sat through a gruelling two hours of topless Jamie Dornan and poker-hot sex scenes to pick out which sex toys you can use to recreate Darker at home.
