That's titilating. Don't stop, bg. You have talent.
I don't know if sweaty cocks are marketable. :|
That is so naughty is so many ways. I don't know whether to correct you or to applaud enthusiastically.
Fifty Shades of Grey becomes bestselling book ever in Britain | Books | The Guardian
Damnit, there goes the chance of having Christian Grey compare notes with Patrick Bateman.

You don't often get to see the birth of new English words, but I must admit that the adjective "beekeeper-sex-loaded" is new to me.
EL James launches official Fifty Shades Of Grey clothing line
Lingerie, I hope.
Was listening to Brian Brushwood and Justin Young talk about The Diamond Club - they didn't read the whole thing before assembling the pieces and publishing it. Quite a feat. I'm thinking we should do one here. Crowdsource the whole thing and sell it.
I just picked up Jasper Fforde's Shades of Grey, and it was only later that I realized that it's only 2 numerals short of the current worldwide phenom. This book was one of his few outside of his Thursday Next series. Like EL James's work, this too is a trilogy.
Fforde's effort was first published in 2009, so it's hard to accuse Fforde of plagiarism, although I'd think he'd feel hard done by having missed blockbuster status by such a tiny margin.
Having read a little of Shades of Grey, I have to say that a single Fforde book is literally worth 50 Shades of Grey [cue reaction to bad pun].
But, but, 50 Shades sold millions of copies!
And maybe Fforde can learn something from that. Perhaps he ought to include some saucy scenes in his next book.

I don't think I need to remind anyone that the resulting text is NWS.
That made me look at the Samuel L. Ipsum generator.
Still not read anything of the Shades.
I just finished the series and enjoyed it. Once I got past the first few chapters of Fifty Shades of Grey I started skiping the sex scenes all together, they're all the same for the most part. I think they need to be there though just to explain how fkd up he is. It's a great read once you filter out the sex a little! I started reading the series late last Thursday and finished Fifty Shades Freed this evening..
Yes, that was pretty much my reaction, too. After one ignores the sex scenes -- or not, as one wishes -- there really is a story to read also.
Why would someone read an "erotic novel" and not read the sex scenes? Just to claim that they have read it? That's like ordering a hamburger but then only eating the toppings.
Not necessarily. There might be as many reasons as people.
In this case many readers have said the scenes were boring and repetitive.
Some people who have read the book have been hung up by spelling and vocabulary and lack of editing, for example, and seem to have seen little else.
If the sex scenes are boring and repetitive and there's problems with the spelling and vocabulary and lack of editing, then I can't really see what's so special about these books.
Well said. I expect sexy kink in my erotic literature. And corsets.
