How can I get my girlfriend to try a little light bondage?

You needn’t splash out on reinforced ceiling hooks. Start by buying her a copy of 50 Shades of Grey (R90, kalahari.net), if she hasn’t read it yet (and get her to perservere past Chapter 7). Even mysterious leading man, Christian Grey, with his fortune, S&M fetish and “Red Room of Pain” that’s made housewives across the world breathless, uses a simple – and, yes, grey – neck tie to restrain the heroine’s wrists together. After instructing her to keep her hands above her head, he kisses her all over, torturously slowly, delaying the best for last. Being prevented from touching him back only increases her longing. That what you had in mind?
