A sommelier is someone who specializes in the intricate matching of food dishes to particular wines.
Do you know what we call someone who pairs specific classical music pieces to deviantly kinky acts of sadomasochism?
The atypical author who gave us 150 different shades of a dark and freed Christian Grey returns with recommendations on what background music should be playing whilst one feasts on her titillating trilogy!
She's collaborating with EMI Classics to release 50 Shades of Grey: The Classical Album!
Consider that the next time you re-read chapter seven for that one scene where Christian Grey — who looks strikingly similar to Alexander Skarsgard in our mind's eye — blindfolds
us Anastasia and bends us her over her desk so that he can mind-eff us her before he quite literally effs us her!
It could be even hotter with Thomas Tallis's Spem in Alium! bellowing in the background!
In a statement, James said:
“I am thrilled that the classical pieces that inspired me while I wrote the 50 Shades Trilogy are being brought together in one collection for all lovers of the books to enjoy.”
The compilation hits stores on August 21 but we imagine most of you secret seks shoppers will buy it online, LOLz!!
