So, you've read 50 Shades of Grey, and it's given you a few ideas on how to spice up the bedroom. Still, you're not quite sure what to do or how to approach it.
Fear not. "The Grey Experience" workshop, being held at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Bombshell Movement Studio in Joliet, promises to tell you all you need to know. Its goal is to help participants "learn how to safely try out some of the scenes from the book and discuss ways to make fantasies into reality."
For those who have been living under a rock, the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy is the publishing phenomenon of the year. It's a love story with explicit sexual scenes featuring Christian Grey, the hunky but mercurial business magnate with a secret passion for deviant dominant sex, and Anastasia Steele, a naive recent college grad who's alternately drawn, repelled and scared by Grey's request to be his submissive sex partner.
The Grey workshop teacher is Mistress Ozreal, who will be providing "tips and tricks," ensuring each participant learns how to do a "hot lap dance routine" and guaranteeing "everyone will leave fully equipped to 'dominate' their evenings."
Alas, the success of the book has led to the success of the workshop. Not only is Friday's sold out ($39 for Bombshell students, $45 for others), but so is the second program added for July 27. No word yet on whether more will be scheduled.
