Today in Things That Make Me Want To Scream “CORRELATION DOES NOT EQUAL CAUSATION!” And Beat My Head Against The Wall:
Last year, a study out of Michigan State University found that the erotic BDSM trilogy Fifty Shades Of Grey “perpetuates” abusive relationships. Now, another study from the same professor at MSU claims young women who read the books are more likely to have an abusive partner and show signs of an eating disorder.
Women who read all three books in the trilogy (like me and Amelia), the study found, are more likely to binge drink and have multiple sex partners. Amy Bonomi, a professor of Human Development and Family Studies and lead author of the study, said that based on her study of over 650 young women ages 18 to 24, it’s possible the Fifty Shades books might “reaffirm” negative experiences and “aggravate trauma.” In other words, this lady r-e-a-l-l-y does not like these books.

The cinematic masterpiece that is sure to be “Fifty Shades Of Grey” is still a long way off (February 2015) but you can get your kinky sex fix now with … wait for it, kittens. Yes, the erotic love affair of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey is reenacted by teeny-weeny beh beh kittehs (and their cat toys). Whoever wrote the puns in one deserves the cat video equivalent of an Oscar.

“I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame… Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
Dakota Johnson (or shall we say, Anastasia Steele) opened up to Elle magazine about filming those intense sex scenes for the upcoming “Fifty Shades Of Grey” movie. Apparently, it wasn’t too nerve-wracking for her to let it all go for the camera. It sounds like Johnson dug into the deeper aspects of her character’s romps with Christian Grey, which I hope means we can expect a movie that’s as complex and explorational as it is sexy. A girl can wish! PopSugar
