With Fifty Shades Of Grey anticipation reaching fever pitch, actor and photographer Lance Gross has jumped on the bondage bandwagon with his #bae campaign.

The Our Family wedding star enlisted the help of celebrity friends including Angela Simmons and Don Benjamin to shoot a risqué BDSM- themed photo project entitled 50 Shades Of Bae.

The sizzling black-and-white images, pays homage to the forthcoming kinky film, based on EL James' best-selling erotic novel. The project was done in conjunction with Universal.

One picture shows Hit The Floor star Robert C Riley channelling his inner Christian Grey as he sits brooding on a chair wearing a suit with a drink in his hand. Benjamin, who played Beyoncé's love interest in her Jealous music video, asserts his dominance by throwing a woman in heels over his shoulder. Her legs are tied with rope.

Socialite Simmons turns up the heat by going topless for one shot, while singer Mila J gets androgynous in a seductive suit. Sib Vicious and Kaelynn Harris were the other femme fatales.

Ahead of the official unveiling, Simmons treated fans to a sneak peak on Twitter.
