Hardware Stores Cash In On Bondage Trend

Fifty Shades Of KinkThe success of Fifty Shades Of Grey has sparked an increase in the sale of hardware products within the U.S. So, it's like the American version of Changing Rooms, just with more kinky sex. Well, not that much more if you know the rumour about Carol Smillie and the Noel Edmonds' Gotcha.

If you don't know about it, Fifty Shades Of Grey is an erotic novel, by British author E.L. James. It has encouraged New York women to seek out the same type of bondage material featured in the book. Multiple hardware stores located in New York have reported that more females are dropping in than ever before.

I've not read the book but I'm worried about what kind of bondage needs items from a hardware store. If it needs rope that's one thing, but if she heads to the glue gun and nail section I am out of there!

Christina Davila, a cashier at Tarzian Hardware in Park Slope, Brooklyn, said: "It's usually men buying rope, but the women, they've been coming in the last few months."

I'm amazed they go through with it. I can understand going to a hardware store when you're in a frisky mood, but as soon as you see the other people who go there, the beer-bellied men with their hirsute arse cracks on display, you'd probably be put right off.

Sex shop Babeland has also seen an increase is trade. Claire Cavanah, co-founder of the store, said: "The book is just an explosion of permission for them to try something new in the bedroom."

Hmm, if a woman said, "I fancy something new in the bedroom, let's go to the hardware store," I'd think, "Oh great! Looks like I'm putting up shelves all weekend."
