Are you into restraint and bondage?

I have an Ebay account. My husband does not. He has used my account extensively lately to buy stuff for the caravan. The last purchase involved buying some restraint straps to tie down a battery. Searching for 'restraint straps' brought up several different suggestions including 'restraint and bondage' type equipment which we both viewed with great curiosity. Today Ebay sends ME, not him, an email. One of those saying 'we've picked this out especially for you' and it's a special on handcuffs and other restraint and bondage gear. I am not amused. Well, only a little bit. I don't have any photos that suggest bondage so you're getting a tree. I like trees.

A keyword can take you where you least expect. Did your husband get any ideas?

He thought it was very funny. He has ordered something so I hope they're battery restraints.

Haha! You have to be broad-minded these days. The Internet is no place for the shy retiring types. Just goes to show what the most popular searches for restraints is, and it's not tying down batteries. I blame 50 Shades of Grey

@Orson_Kart They existed before 50 Shades. Only brought into limelight with 50 shades.

@JudyEv Of course, men always think that it is very funny. I have forbidden my husband to use my accounts when he makes his searches.

LOL! My answer to the title of your question is a big fat no. Ebay do throw up ideas based on recent purchases. They have been cheeky this time. I like trees too but wouldn't want to be restrained to one!

@Daljinder No thank you! Ugh! I started to watch 50 Shades of Grey. Utter rubbish, I gave up on it. Read the books though. No mucky bits until page 78.

You should explore your inner fantasies and purchase the handcuffs and give them a try! Who knows, you may go crazy with the whole bondage thing! haha I dated a girl once who wanted to give it a try, so we bought some handcuffs. She seemed to really enjoy it, but I was less than thrilled. Obviously, we didn't date long. I guess I'm just not into that sort of thing!

Certainly verging towards too much information. I don't think I trust anyone enough to allow them to handcuff me to something. And they might have a heart attack! And I don't really want to handcuff anyone else either. :)

Ebay has a sense of humor. It always interests me when online companies send me emails about what I will enjoy. I often get a good laugh out of it.

@JudyEv I have Netflix, and at one time my son and grandson would watch things they liked on my account. Now I get some crazy suggestions about what I might like. Movies and shows I would never watch.

@Gillygirl @DianneN Trees are free so I guess they are sort of the opposite of 'restraint'. :)

Innocent internet searches can turn up some bizarre things. One of my kids was a bedwetter. Searching online for strategies to resolve the problem turned up all sorts of unexpected stuff. I didn't know that some people find bedwetting a turn on .

I really don't like this kind of action! The concept became popular to a wide audience after the "50 shades of grey" story. So many people read the books and watched the films and I think it made them curious and more open to the concept.

It's not for me either. After hearing about the book from others that had read it, I decided to give it a miss. I have better things to do with my time.

@JudyEv I did read the book to be honest, I borrowed it from a friend and it was a relaxing summer read. When a book becomes so popular, I want to read it and see why everyone is so excited about it!

I prefer trees to restrain and bondage as well. I did briefly date one woman who...I don't want to talk about it. Only @FourWalls will recognize "I don't want to talk about it" as words from a relevant song.
