Huffington Post UK Does Bondage Spread


Ballgag, vibrator, rope and a naked woman ... so simple, so elegant, so much fun! Image source: Hogtied.com.

I've noted in previous posts that 50 Shades of Gray seems to have emboldened mainstream media to show actual images of women in bondage. Well the Huffington Post UK has taken the trend a bit farther than most, with a seven-pic photo spread of products whose sales the editors feel will be boosted by 50 Shades of Gray. Pretty obviously, the topic is an excuse for the photo spread, but damn, who's complaining?

The article is illustrated with a pick of a woman cuffed hands behind, and apparently while naked, because the top of her naked butt is visible. There are also seven other photos of bondage-y products in the photo spread. Most of them are very gauzy, timid romantic images that don't really give you a clear idea of what's going on, which in the case of these images, is nothing much. Certainly nothing much compared with the image WE'RE using as an illustration.

Par for the course for mainstream stuff, of course, but a big improvement over all the nothing that has come before, as I keep pointing out. I think 50 Shades of Gray has moved the goalposts, baby, and the goalposts don't even know it yet!
