I love David Sedaris.
The Fifty Shades of Grey biography that wasn't | UK news | guardian.co.uk
Why doesn't he just change the names on his fanfiction and put it out as an original work, then? I hear it's been known to work.
My thoughts exactly!
50 Shades just opened my eyes to the other reading genres out there like erotica and so called soft porn. For a book like 50 shades to be so popular there must be an awful lot of lonely women out there, and I was one of them, and I don't mind saying so. I don't need to justify my opinions to anyone but myself, but I liked the book - sure the writing was a little slow and repetitive, but overall a good starter read when you're getting into the genre.
People say Christian is kinky, or is abusive. Have those who read the book and thought ill of the BDSM lifestyle ever experienced it? I don't think so, otherwise they would know that it's empowering for women. A show of trust in a partner and an overall honesty that comes from that type of relationship.
That's my ten bucks worth
Don't knock it til you've tried it.
: It's fine.
Hey. Don't laugh or get off topic "Administrator" cheeky devil:devil2: What's your opinion on 50 Shades?:lol:
My opinion is that if it gets her in the mood to be experimental, I won't be the one to complain.

This book had mixed reviews.
I'm one of those who did not like the book. By the way I could not even read it after the initial pages.
That's because the book seem to be written exclusively for female audiences. I'm a guy. The book takes so much lines for describing how perfect Gray is that the plot seems to go in the background sometimes.
Maybe that's because the narrative is from the perspective of a girl.
But its writing shows an obsession so great regarding Gray that for me it was impossible to read any further than the part after Kate wakes up in a hungover and thinks how turning on even Gray's sweat is.
Merged with existing thread.
Thanks. I think my post fits better here
The trust is illusory, the relationship is unequal and based on forcing that intimacy through breaking the will or subverting the will of the submissive to the dominant. In true trust you come together as equals not as a dominant and submissive. In true trust there is equal submission and no dominance ie both submit equally to the other while neither attempts to dominate.
Why does one person feel the need to dominate? And why does one feel the need to be submissive to the point of giving up all free will? These character traits indicate underlying psychological issues that, if resolved, will end the desire to meet their unmet needs through such behaviour.
I'm pretty much a bored housewife and this is one of my favorite books of all time. I know I fit the target demographic to a tee and honestly I think it's cool that more books are being targeted at us lonely middle aged wives.
I've watched many interviews with E.L James and the way she described the book was for a way for women to express their sensuality without being seen in a bad way. But it was a bit intense. However there is a lot of authors who write like that only not so much sex scenes, such as Gena Showalter and Lynsday Sands. They are good authors but most of their books are paranormal romance.
