Enter our Fifty Shades of Grey competition for the chance to win amazing prizes - plus an exclusive Lovehoney discount for every entry

It’s been 10 years since the world first fell for the erotic adventures of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, the books unlocking imaginations to the possibilities of new ways to play in the bedroom and beyond.

And it’s your erotic imaginations that we want to tap in our Fifty Shades of Grey Your Way competition. We want to know what Fifty Shades of Grey and eroticism means to you via the creative medium of your choice. Perhaps that’s through painting, sketches, photography, video or other forms of visual art. Maybe it’s poetry, story or song.

The choice is yours and, as long as it’s nothing too explicit, nothing’s off the table; we’d just like you to create a sexy scenario that encapsulates both your own experiences and the spirit of sexual exploration that flows through the Fifty Shades books.
