Class Action Lawsuit Claims 50 Shades of Grey Lube Failed to Perform
Have you or someone you know been spanked, whipped or otherwise dominated by the deceptive marketing of 50 Shades of Grey-branded sex lube? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses, should one California woman's new lawsuit be successful.
According to The Wrap, Tania Warchol is suing 50 Shades author E.L. James on behalf of everyone who has purchased "Fifty Shades of Grey Come Alive Pleasure Gel For Her" in the last four years. Warchol's lawsuit claims the family-friendly fuck-grease promised "beneficial and aphrodisiac properties to increase pleasure and enhance orgasms" and failed to deliver.
The complaint notes that the product's packaging promises users will "experience enhanced orgasms and stimulation as every tingle, touch and vibration intensifies." It includes the lines from James' second Fifty Shades novel printed on the box — "I surrender, exploding around him — a draining, soul-grabbing orgasm that leaves me spent and exhausted."
Citing FDA regulations and California's Consumers Legal Remedies Act, Warchol seeks a full refund and punitive damages for herself and any other customer whose soul was not grabbed.
