Brought to you by OBS staff member Heidi

“Fifty Shades of Grey” not only made headlines, but now it’s creating new relationships and feelings between people because of the novel’s erotic story.

Not only do women want to play out the sexual scenes of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in their own bedrooms with their partners, but they also are looking for sugar daddy’s who will dominate them in a way Christian will.

According to Business Insider, the readers of the E.L. James sexy novel are flocking to “sugar daddy/sugar baby” online dating website Seeking, said Brandon Wade, founder of the site….

In “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Anastasia Steele, who is a virgin, meets billionaire Christian Grey, who lives in the world of BDSM. He made an agreement with Steele, and “gives her a hefty allowance, a car, and a new penchant for whips, chains and handcuffs,” according to Business Insider.

Seeking Arrangement has an economically similar mission: to connect young women with rich dudes who will pay for their lifestyles….

The fantasies that whirl in people’s mind as they read “Fifty Shades of Grey” are not just wishes. They can act them out by going to the various hotels that offer “Fifty Shades” romance packages.

According to Vanity Fair, the Hotel Max in Seattle, where the novel is set in, offers a two-night stay that includes chauffeured-town-car service, a 30-minute helicopter tour of the city, a four-hour skippered sailing excursion on the Puget Sound, a gourmet picnic, and a bottle of Bollinger Grande Année Rosé 1999 champagne, one of Grey’s preferred vintages, all beginning at $1,699.

Edgewater Hotel, also in Seattle, offers a similar package with the same champagne, a demo drive in an Audi (which Christian drives), and a custom “Fifty Shades of Grey” landmark tour.

The Heathman Hotel, located in Portland, which is also featured in the steamy novel, gives guests the option to try the “Charlie Tango Experience,” which is the name of Christian’s helicopter in the book, according to the Examiner. The package offers champagne, other drinks, a night drive and more to explore love and passion in the “Fifty Shades” way.

I’ve never actually read this book, I’ve been scared off knowing that it originated as a Twilight fanfic.  But with all the media buzz including some libraries banning the book, I know that I will most likely read it….eventually.

It kind of blows my mind that it has inspired dating services and now these over-the-top hotel packages.  I think it’s crazy that some people would want to live out this fantasy that much more and it’s even more amazing that they have the money to pay to have their fantasy come true!

I can’t blame the hotels on this one, you have the ability to make dreams come true and line your own pockets with money, you have to go for it (especially the ones that have a connection with the story)!!  Strike while the iron is hot and all of that, because once the buzz dies down so will the popularity with these extravagant packages.

What do you think about these hotel’s offering these packages, if you had the money would you take part in these romantic packages??  Sign off about this topic below!!
