According to PinkCherry, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ launch trailer is now the most watched trailer while Canadians are amongst the fans and are searching for and buying sex toys at record rates.
Since the trailer was released a 60% increase in traffic was seen specifically for bondage categories such as handcuffs and whips.

PinkCherry predicts that the movie’s release in February 2015 will ignite an even greater boom in sex toy sales in Canada. The book’s debut in 2011 increased overall business by 54%; the movie will no doubt have a similar impact, says the company.
PinkCherry is the exclusive distributor for the official Fifty Shades of Grey merchandise in Canada, says the company.
