'50 Shades Of Grey' At 35,000 Feet
The book follows the exploits of Anastasia Steele, a virgin who meets a wealthy businessman with particular tastes in the bedroom. It has already sold over 10 million copies.
"'Fifty Shades of Grey' has quickly gained notoriety as a 'naughty novel,' leaving some women embarrassed to read their copy in public. We want to give our female passengers the chance to enjoy the book in an intimate way, without prying eyes. Of course, we can't promise to spare any blushes and can't be held responsible for any risqué behavior that listening to the recording inspires," said Sarah McIntyre, Virgin Atlantic spokesperson.
These audio books are a feature of the planes' InFlight Entertainment Systems.
Let's just say we think you'll be able to tell who is listening by the squirming and shocked facial expressions. We hope nobody decides to try out some of the book's signature moves in the airport lavatory, either.
