Let's be honest, ladies — who hasn't been at least a little bit curious after reading those ridiculously steamy scenes in 50 Shades of Grey? Seriously, those gotta-have-you-now romps are what fantasies are made of. But why not kick things up a notch and bring your sexy imagination to life?

Introducing bondage and other BDSM techniques into our bedroom routines can be a great way to spice up our sex lives, but many of us are unsure of where to start. Take it from sex therapist and YourTango Expert Dr. Lori Buckley of the Sinclair Institute. With the right preparation, we can all try these sexy secrets between the sheets.  Not only does it depend on how well you know your own comfort zone, it's all about being able to pick up on your partner's cues. There's nothing cute about going in for the kill and your partner just isn't on the same page. Making your partner feel safe will go a long way. If you want to bring your fantasies to life, being knowledgeable on precautions to take will make all the difference. After all, why should Anastasia Steele have all the fun? It's time to get informed and get kinky.
