We’ve all got guilty pleasures, right? Well, I’ll admit that one of mine is the 50 Shades of Grey series. The books came out around the same time I bought my first Magic Wand and so I associate them with me having A LOT of orgasms. I know the books are kind of silly and the relationship is unrealistic (and actually unhealthy) but for me they are pure escapism and hold a special place in my heart.
Obviously this means I recently saw the new movie 50 Shades Darker. My girlfriends and I caught a matinee and the theatre was empty. Since it was just us there we started playing a game: Whenever a “sexy” scene started we would call out what we thought should happen next. We eventually noticed how often our response was “Take out a Magic Wand!” or “Use a Magic Wand!” or “For the love of god, MAGIC WAND!!”.
It turned into a joke and by the end we were doing it whenever a scene got quiet or when characters would get angry, and really, whenever we felt like it. We’re joking about going back and playing the 50 Shades of Magic Wand game where we yell it whenever Ana says “beautiful” (she says it a lot).
Here’s the kicker though: we weren’t alone in the theatre! There were two women all the way in the back corner whom we didn’t see until we were leaving- oh no! We apologized to them for being so rowdy, they laughed and said we were their favorite part of the movie. Then they asked us “What’s so great about this Magic Wand?” We got to explaining and I’m pretty sure those ladies left to shop for some not-at-all guilty pleasure! How fun is that?!
