    This. I totally think this is the answer. They never stop to think that they could possibly control the content of their own sex life, minus the terrible literature. And now, people are going to run out and buy handcuffs. I do hope they consider purchasing bolt cutters as well. You know, before they have to drive to the fire station wearing a towel someday.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Hahahaha!

    I am studiously avoiding all mention of the book let alone reading it. But that made me LOL. I'm assuming Ana is the main character?

    Damn, the lengths stars will go to in order to be seen as "serious actors" and "real adults" At least she won't be having implied sex with a horse.

    I haven't read them. I read a couple of excerpts, and thought they were so appallingly badly written that I wouldn't bother. Life is too short and there are too many underappreciated authors who can actually write for shit.

    I'd be a card-carrying sensotard, but I can't find the goddamn card.

    I don't understand. Isn't there all kinds of soft-core erotic fiction online? Some of it probably as well or even better written than this? Can't people just read that for free?

    I won't lie: That Emma Watson is an attractive young lady. They're trying to trick me into have even the smallest level of interest in seeing that damn movie.

    That stuff is hardly accessible to the masses and carries a semi-legitimate stamp of "actual literature, not just porn". Much like men who claimed to read Playboy for the articles.

    I was intrigued by the runaway success of these books and various acquaintances of mine lauding it on Facebook, considering what it was. I found a copy of the pdfs.

    As I expected from the ridiculous quotes and excerpts floating around, and the reviews, the writing is appalling, and the characterisation laughable. I've read far better fanfiction written by teenagers (not that I've delved into the Twilight realm of that).

    Have you read them?
    What did you think?
    Why do you think this is the first erotic fiction book to go HUGE?
    (a couple of my friends who have particularly dull sex lives read it and loved it)
    Do you think there will be a massive increase in people getting involved in the BDSM scene?

    I am loving this book (ok so everytime I read 'my inner goddess' I cringe but I'm willing to forgive that) but then I love sex. I'm curious to know why this particular work of erotica has such universal appeal?
    I read a little of it. What I read was pretty damn entertaining. I may even read the whole thing one day.

    I was working on the floor of the Ann Summers warehouse last June... And I saw Fifty Shades a Grey, and I didn't think too much of it, then this thing got popular.
