Perhaps the biggest placement for Sportsheets came earlier this month when the company was featured in the Print Valentine’s Day issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine. Sportsheets President Julie Stewart was quoted in the article entitled “Why Is Kink So Freaking Sexy” and the magazine referred to the Sportsheets executive as a Kink Veteran. The article included a three page spread with product recommendations for beginners, intermediates, and advanced users. The advanced guide featured the Sex & Mischief Red and Black Stripe Flogger. Dubbed by Cosmo as “The Stroke of Genius”, the magazine added a blurb to the flogger saying “Give him a hard smack on the butt or gently run the strands over his bare back like he’s a delicious human car wash”. The February issue of Cosmopolitan is considered to be the magazine’s most popular issue of the year.
Sportsheets has enjoyed huge sales increases as a result of the Fifty Shades Phenomenon. According to Sportsheets President Julie Stewart, “January 2015 was the company’s second highest shipping month in company history and the movie hasn’t even hit theaters yet. We can only imagine what sales will be like once people actually go see the movie and decide to try something new in the bedroom.”
The movie has impacted the company so much that Sportsheets is held a private screening February 13th at 5:30 PM in Huntington Beach for Sportsheets Staff, Customers, and Press that proved to be a huge success and a good time was had by all.
