'Fifty Shades of Grey' branded lingerie and furniture: How far would you take the fantasy?
Unsurprisingly, someone is planning to cash in on the fervor -- but is this going too far? Caroline Mickler Limited is now representing the book's merchandising licenses with the intent to sell a ton of products aimed at the "Fifty Shades" mommy-porn crowd.
"Among the diverse categories being discussed by Caroline Mickler Ltd for licensing are lingerie/sleepwear, apparel, fragrances, beauty products, bedding, home furnishings, stationery, jewelry and adult products," the company says in a statement. "The market's interest in Fifty Shades of Grey as a brand is enormous. With continuing book sales and a film version keeping awareness high, we expect this property to make a very strong showing in a number of licensed categories over the coming months."
We can see it now: silver ties, silver balls, decor for your own personal red room of pain. Can you buy an inner goddess?
