West Hollywood Sex Shop Welcomes Fifty Shades of New Customer

It’s a phenomenon no doubt being replicated at adults-only retail destinations across the country. According to a report by Adult Video News, LA sex shop The Pleasure Chest is reaping a bonanza of new sales as a result of the runaway success of the e-book trilogyFifty Shades of Grey.

Kristen Tribby – the store’s delightfully titled director of creative development – tells AVN that the last time they saw this much pop culture-derived action was when Carrie Bradshaw sang the praises of a Rabbit vibrator. There’s so much interest in fact that the chain is going the extra event-mile:

To meet these increased demands, the store has announced “Fifty Shades of Pleasure,” a workshop that lets customers revisit the hottest activities from the books and explore ideas on how to incorporate them into their bedroom adventures. The Pleasure Chest is also offering “Fifty Shades of Pleasure” as a specialized workshop for private parties and small groups.

The West Hollywood store will host the public workshop event May 8, while its sister locations in Chicago and New York will do the same on, respectively, May 9 and May 15.
