Forget Fifty Shades of Grey: Expert Tips For Exploring Your Inner Kinkster

With the explosive popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, many Miamians have come to discover that there has been a little kinkster inside them begging to come out and play.

Mitzi Szereto, a widely published erotic fiction writer and editor says, "The popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey...helped bring what was initially considered taboo by the mainstream directly into their bedrooms, inspiring people to be more open and experimental with their partners. By demystifying these practices while simultaneously glamorizing them, these books have removed some of the fear from engaging in them."
