  • 50 Shades of Grey opens Thursday in San Antonio

Fifty Shades of Grey began as a novel trilogy that served as an insight between the BDSM relationship between college student Anastasia Steele, and magnate/BDSM enthusiast Christian Grey. Because of its worldwide popularity, the trilogy has been translated into 52 languages and has sold over 100 million copies. It is no wonder that the large fan base wanted a featured film that brought the lustful characters to life. With the anticipated release of Fifty Shades of Grey, many sex shops and normal retailers are jumping on to the marketing bandwagon. In preparation for the film's Valentine's weekend release, here is a compilation of places where you can get all of your Fifty Shades of Grey gear.

During Valentine's Day weekend, Temptations will be reimburse your 50 Shades of Grey movie ticket if you present the movie ticket stub and buy $50 worth of their bang-inducing products. It is one ticket per transaction. Friday, 8373 Culebra, (210) 521-4555,


This LGBT paradise has the official pleasure collection for Fifty Shades of Grey. Make sure to get the arrays of love tapping paddles, bondage handcuffs, strangely formed toys, and of course the package is not complete without the Christian Grey tie. 1608 N Main, (210) 821-5345

Love Shack Boutique
The Medical Center sex shop is currently selling Fifty Days of Play, a very fun and arousing envelope game where the dominant and submissive roles are dictated to the game itself. 1508 Babcock, (210) 767-9411,

50 Shades of Chicken
This hilariously written, pun-infected cookbook includes very tantalizing recipes where men dominate chicken to its most tenderizing state of ‘dripping thighs.’

Adult Megaplex
The biggest sex shop in San Antonio will be hosting a very salacious Fifty Shades of Grey cocktail mixer at their Nakoma location. They will feature 25-percent-off Shades of Grey products and very exciting free gifts. Free, 9pm, Saturday Feb 21, 11827 HWY 281, (210) 404-0011.

Targer, of all places, is also now carrying a line of Fifty Shades of Grey toys. One of the items includes a vibrating finger that can go anywhere. Where that place would be is totally up to you. Make sure to head on over to the nearest Target and just casually look through the adult health area. 

Vermont Teddy Bear Co.
This innocent of teddy bears is going over to the grey side. It will be selling a very naughty Christian Grey inspired teddy bear with its own set of blindfolds and handcuffs. It also has “Christian Grey eyes.”
