    More young people in Singapore turn to BDSM for a spanking good sex life

    Topics related to Bondage and discipline, Dominance and submission, and Sado-Masochism (BDSM), are commonly discussed during educational events organised by local group SG Learn and Play! (SLAP!). The group was formed in 2014 – the year the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” starring Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) came out in theatres – as the founders noticed an increasing number of munches being organised among the local BDSM community. “Munches are usually the first entry point for people looking to get into the scene, because they are a safe space for people who want to meet those with the same interests face-to-face,” said SLAP! co-founder Amber, who attended her first munch about 15 years ago.

    Live Out Your “50 Shades of Grey” Fantasies for $12K

    Live Out Your “50 Shades of Grey” Fantasies for $12K E.L. James wrote 50 Shades of Grey so vividly and used so many descriptive adjectives (seriously, how many times was the word taciturn used?!) that fans basically demanded that a movie be made to bring the story to life. For $12,397, a “Christian Grey” (not Jamie Dornan) maybe look alike will take women living in New York or Los Angeles out to dinner and on a helicopter ride overlooking their city. All the finest high-end gear will be new upon every episode from Kiki de Montparnasse. If you’re going to spend that much money on prostitution, wouldn’t you want to guarantee that the man fulfills your fantasy and is as sexy as Christian Grey seems in the books?
