LOS ANGELES, CA – Like that Devo song says, “when a problem comes along, you must whip it.” But the folks who run AMC, Regal Entertainment, and Cinemark, three of the nation’s largest theater chains, say they’d prefer their customers didn’t whip it.
Fans of “Fifty Shades of Gray” are on edge, waiting for the Valentine’s Day release of the film about erotic adventures that go beyond the conventional.
A spokesperson for AMC says they welcome people who want to dress up in costume to show their excitement, but adds, “. . . we do not permit weapons, real or fake, that would make guests uncomfortable or detract from the moviegoing experience.”
A California woman won’t be taking her “Fifty Shades of Gray Come Alive Pleasure Gel for Her.” The woman’s class-action lawsuit claims she did not experience “enhanced orgasms and stimulation” with every “tingle, touch, and vibration” as advertised on the box. She says she purchased the stuff twice, but she didn’t mention if she used a whip during her experiences.
Also, for anyone planning to do some Fifty Shades of waxing before going to see the movie, Dakota Johnson says waxing hurt more than paddling. Johnson says she did a lot of waxing because she wanted to look good in all her nude scenes. She, also, says getting thrown on the bed during multiple takes gave her a whiplash.
Apparently, that wasn’t on the menu in the Red Room of Pain.
