Vermont Teddy Bear Company offering cuddly ’50 Shades of Grey’ teddy bear (Video)

It’s lovable and furry, like all the teddy bears that come out of Vermont. This one — named for the controversial book and movie “50 Shades of Grey” — even comes with its own lovable little set of handcuffs and S&M mask. The toy (sex toy?), which is 15 inches high and will set you back $89.99, is described at the company website as follows:

If you want to dominate Valentine’s Day, skip the roses and send the limited-edition Fifty Shades of Grey Bear. Inspired by the best-selling book, the adult gift is specially designed for fans obsessed with Grey, biting their lips with anticipation over the movie. He features smoldering eyes, a suit and satin tie, mask – even mini handcuffs. Handmade in Vermont, USA using the silkiest fur we can get our paws on; smooth, faux-suede details and 100% recycled stuffing. Guaranteed for life.  (h/t Jay Taylor, ConservativeByte)

No information on whether the bear comes with its own lovable STD.

For the uninitiated (if that is possible), “Fifty Shades of Grey” is the story of a tycoon named Christian Grey, whose sexual appetite is as insatiable as it is kinky. According to the trailer for the film, which opens Friday in time for V.D. (that’s Valentine’s Day in this instance), young and innocent “literature student Anastasia Steele’s life changes forever when she meets [the] handsome, yet tormented, billionaire.” The rest is easy enough to imagine.

As our friend Tami Jackson writes cynically at Saving Our Future:

If a movie attracts millions of viewers and makes millions of dollars, it’s a blockbuster, a success. Morals and themes be hanged, just make boatloads of money. Period.

But it’s not just adults that the movie is being marketed to.

Once again, the hypocrisy of the left is breathtaking. On the one hand, they are forever bemoaning the depravity that awaits adult women on college campuses, citing the widely debunked myth that 1 in 5 is certain to be raped. On the other, they have no qualms about “liberating” the minds of the youngest among us, by, for example, giving fifth graders instruction on how to apply a condom or giving them word search puzzles with the words and phrase like “bondage” and “leather cuffs.”
