VALENCIA, Calif., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trigg Laboratories, makers of Wet® Personal Lubricants, and HUSTLER Hollywood® invite fans of the 50 Shades novels to turn their fantasies into reality through thoughtfully curated workshops exploring the sexual activities featured in the popular trilogy by E.L. James. Titled "Beyond Fifty Shades: Bringing Kink Into the Bedroom," the workshops are open to the public at no cost at the HUSTLER Hollywood retail store in West Hollywood on August 29 and at the San Diego store on August 30, both from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. PDT. The workshops will be led by Charlie Glickman, Ph. D., a certified sex educator with extensive experience in adult sexuality instruction and consultation.
The "Beyond Fifty Shades" workshops are ideal for people wishing to explore BDSM (bondage and discipline; dominance and submission; and sadism and masochism) practices in safe and informed ways. Topics will include how to talk about engaging in BDSM with a partner, bondage and spanking basics, sex toy usage, important safety tips, etiquette and much more. Bondage tools and Wet personal lubricant will be provided for hands-on instruction.
"Experiencing phenomenal sexual experiences while being safe and healthy are of the utmost importance to us," said Jennifer Martsolf, Vice President of Marketing at Trigg Laboratories. "As people experiment with intimate bedroom activities, our goal is to prepare them with expert knowledge to make their first experiences unforgettable for all the right reasons."
"Our customers' interest in BDSM has spiked with the popularity of the 50 Shades books," said Carol Mendelsohn, Director of Marketing at HH Entertainment, Inc. "As people try BDSM techniques for the first time, HUSTLER Hollywood stores will support consumers with not only the right tools, but also with a forum where all sexual activities can be discussed openly."
