Sheri’s Ranch, the legal brothel and sex resort located outside of Las Vegas, has seen an increased interest in its BDSM services since the release of the book Fifty Shades of Grey in 2011, and anticipates an even greater interest with the release of the film adaptation in early 2015.
The massive success of E. L. James “mommy porn” series has resulted in a 5% boost in bookings of the brothel’s BDSM suite, where courtesans provide, among other things, introductory training in sadomasochistic erotic acts involving dominance and submission.
Dena, the brothel’s madam, directly attributes this jump in BDSM reservations to the book’s success, since more and more women are enquiring about the services.
“It’s not a coincidence that more women and couples between the ages of 35 and 50 are booking our dungeon room. The 50 Shades of Grey book has introduced many women to bondage and discipline, and a percentage of those readers would like to act on their interests. Sheri’s provides a safe and private environment for women to experiment with the world of BDSM, and we anticipate the film will generate even more curiosity.”
“The trailer for the film adaptation of the Fifty Shades of Grey book became the most watched trailer of the year in less than one week. If the trailer is any indication, this film will have an even greater effect on our business than the book had,” said Dena.
The madam said she has the Fifty Shades movie in mind as she puts together her 2015 bordello schedule from her pool of 144 courtesans.
“I need to make sure that I have at least 4 to 8 women in each week’s line up who specialize in BDSM activities and education.
While many women and couples make an appointment in advance, several are walk-in customers, and our ladies need to be prepared for the increase in bookings.”
The film adaptation is scheduled to be released on February 13th, 2015.
