5 Myths About Kinky Sex From “50 Shades Of Grey”

As someone who has identified as kinky for over a decade, both professionally and personally, I have to admit I was absolutely appalled when the 50 Shades trilogy first hit the mainstream. I read all three books, and as I read some of the myths and stereotypes, I had to do some deep breathing.

I couldn’t help thinking, “These are the books that have become the cultural reference point for kink?” As I thought this, a bit of my kinky little heart broke. But, my opinion has changed since then.

I still think the books are poorly written and that there is much better erotica out there. Regardless, these are the books that have everyone talking about sex and kink. At this point, the value of that far outweighs some tired writing clichés. Read more…

You guys, it is only Tuesday and I’ve already read a press release about a Fifty Shades of Grey-themed compilation of classical music. This doesn’t really spark a lot of confidence for the rest of the week, does it?

Yes, it’s true: the 15 pieces of music that are mentioned in the books comprisising the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy will soon be available in one convenient place: your car, or your Discman, or your very fancy home stereo system that you’ll show off to all of the vapid women you have over to seduce in your high-rise condo because you think such a thing is an accurate display of “personality,” and because the women you bed are probably into the ideas of entry-level BDSM and fucking to Mozart. (Haha just kidding, that will never happen to you, especially if you own this CD.) Keep reading »

You will never catch me reading 50 Shades of Grey, so pardon me if I get all my info about Christian Grey etc. from watching this He-Man mashup from “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” I’m going to assume that Christian is a Skeletor-looking motherfucker, who happens to be really into butts.

Christian Grey is damn near God-like — at least according to guests’ bedside tables in The Damson Dene Hotel. Bibles have been booted and E L James’ BDSM erotica novel 50 Shades of Grey has taken their place in every room within the English inn. Damson Dene’s owner said providing a copy of the book to every guest within the 40-room hotel was “a hospitable thing to do.” Keep reading »

Anne Rice On Women And Erotica: “The Whole World Knows Women Are Sensual Beings As Well As Men”

Anne Rice photo

“As a feminist, I’m very much supportive of equal rights for women in all walks of life. And that includes for me the right of every woman to write out her sexual fantasies and to read books filled with sexual fantasies that she enjoys. Men have always enjoyed all kinds of pornography. How can it be wrong for women to have the same right? We’re sexual beings! And fantasy is where we can do the things we can’t do in ordinary life.”

Apparently, reading 50 Shades of Grey warrants being squirted in the face with 50 Shades of Brown.

Raymond Hodgson, 31, was recently charged with common assault after finding his partner, Emma McCormick, reading the BDSM erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, before slapping her in the face and  squirting a mysterious brown sauce on her because he found the books “pornographic” and “distasteful.” Keep reading »

Thank God this “50 Shades Of Grey” musical is just a parody. I don’t think Broadway is ready for the Red Room Of Pain just yet. But in the mean time, at least the NYU’s musical theater program is getting some work. [Flavorwire]

I haven’t exactly kept it a secret around here the way that I’m sexually wired. For the most part, though, the only person whose opinion matters on the subject is my sexual partner. (And any roommates who have to listen to occasional smacking.) Yet, every so often, BDSM — that’s bondage, dominance, sadomasochism — pops up in mainstream popular culture and us kinksters and spankos get to hear the mainstream’s opinion on our lives.

“Secretary,” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader, a flick about a secretary who enters into a dominance/submission relationship with her boss, came out while I was in college. Although the flick was understandably controversial, it explained to a lot of people, “Hey, we’re just regular folks like you. Except, you know, not so regular!”

More recently, it’s the BDSM erotic novel 50 Shades Of Grey that has people talking. It seems everyone has an opinion on the subject — including those who are completely misguided about who kinksters are and what we do. Take, for instance, feminist blogger Morgane Richardson and a piece she wrote calling 50 Shades “a glimpse into domestic violence.”

11 Annoying Things “50 Shades Of Grey” Fans Say

Fifty Shades of Grey! Fifty Shades of Grey! Fifty Shades of … ahhhh! Somebody get me an aspirin. I have not read this book.I have no plans to read this book. And yet I hear about this damn book so much it feels like I’ve read it. Ackk!! Why do I have no interest in it? I don’t know exactly. I don’t want to eat a live squid either and no one asks me to explain that.

But if I HAVE to give reasons, here are some: I read two paragraphs of the sample chapters on Amazon and couldn’t get any farther. (Okay, so I read some.) I have other books that I want to read, and time is limited, so why would I waste my time reading something I don’t? I do not judge you for reading the book (well, I do, but silently), so please do not judge me for not reading. Deal?

Maybe you also know some elusive women who don’t want to read this book. Here are 11 annoying things Fifty Shades fans say to them. And shouldn’t! Read more…
