I just finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey. I had to. When a book is shooting up the Amazon charts that fast, you have to see what it’s all about.
I have to say that I did not really see what all the fuss what about. It’s just like any other romance but longer….
What did impress me was thinking about its widespread popularity and what effects it will have on the future.
For example, I see an emerging market for sex shops with drive through windows. That way people won’t have to risk being seen walking in to the shop. Can’t you just picture it? Driving up to the speaker and asking for two packs of extra -large ribbed and a bottle of strawberry lotion.
Or consider this: who is going to install and do the maintenance on the home gyms that will be re-purposed for different kinds of “activities”. I look forward to finding the mechanical engineer who can listen with a straight face when the homeowner asks to have the chin-up bar attached to the ceiling with a pair of handcuffs on each end.
I also think there could be a good market for equestrian supply stores in the off season. Imagine the brisk bridle and riding crop sales a Christmas…..
So don’t despair. If you are looking for a career in an emerging and sexy field, it could be just around the corner/boudoir.
