Spice Things Up In Bed With 50 Shades Of Grey [VIDEO]

After reading those sexy scenes from E.L. James' 50 Shades of Grey, we have to say that BDSM and role-playing just got a lot more interesting. It's no surprise that after being introduced to the book, people have been more open about exploring their sexuality.  This is especially true with aspects of their sex life that were once considered taboo.

Whether you're looking for ways to spice up your sex life or have just been wanting to explore the world of kinks, trying something new in bed can have many perks that'll benefit you and your husband (wink).

But what's the best place to start?

Here's the breakdown: Do your research! There are so many things that go into BDSM; knowing exactly what you are and aren't willing to try can make a major difference.

If you and your partner are beginners, the first thing you need to remember is not to panic. There's no shame in wanting to bring those fantasies to life.

Bottom line: Don't EVER let fear stop you!

YourTango's Senior VP Melanie Gorman, LMFT Ian Kerner, author Dr. Sonia Borg, Lifestyle and Parenting Strategist Natalie Blais and LPC Megan Pollock couldn't have said it better when they stress that you should never let fear get in the way of trying something new with your partner. As long as you and your partner are both well-informed and ready, that's all that matters.
