What If It Hadn’t Been “Fifty Shades of Grey” But One Of These Erotic Novels Instead?

My mom never read erotica (that I know of) when I was growing up, but on a recent trip home I spotted a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey in the back seat of her car.

“Mom, I can’t believe you’re reading that!” I screamed.

“I just read it for the sex,” she said, matter-of-factly.

Twilight fanfiction/S&M erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey has struck a nerve not just with my mom but, with millions of woman around the world. The Fifty Shades phenomena has led to endless articles about women’s sex lives and how men should buy things that go thwack in sex shops. Apparently even Oprah likes to read the series in the bathtub? (I don’t need to know.) Keep reading »

Ms. Christian Grey? Study Tells Women To Take Charge During Sex

If you think it’s a George of the Jungle you’re looking for in the bedroom, think again. Despite our fantasies of Don Draper or Christian Grey, it’s most likely a Michael Cera type who will be able to satisfy us the most sexuallyA new Yale University study published in the Sex Roles journal (yes, that exists) found that men who believe they need to be dominant during playtime are less comfortable asking women about their sexual needs and discussing their own.

The study surveyed 357 women and 126 men ages 18 to 29, all heterosexual and sexually active, on their sexual confidence and assertiveness.

Turns out that adhering to traditional gender roles could damage a man’s confidence — and make him less likely to use protection. In the survey room, there was a bowl of female condoms with a sign that read: “Protect yourself and your partner. Please take some! Free Female Condoms.” The more the subjects believed in traditional power dynamics, the less they were likely to take the condoms. Read more…

Like it or not, Fifty Shades of Grey has become a bonafide global phenomenon we can’t seem to shut up about. So it’s no surprise E.L. James’ steamy series has actually inspired its very own MAGAZINE.

  • The husband of EL James, the woman who wrote the Fifty Shades Of Grey series, says that Ryan Gosling is set to play Christian Grey in the movie adaptation. Listen, I would LOVE FOR THIS TO BE TRUE. In fact, he was my first choice when I was fantasy casting the movie. But I don’t believe it for a second because Ryan, let’s face it, is too classy and smart for that crap. It’s not like he’s a James Franco-type who does bad shit as “performance art.” [The Stir]

  • HOLY CRAP. Apparently “Star Trek: The Next Generation” actor Michael Dorn is in talks to possibly do a Worf spin-off! I. Am. Freaking. Out. [The Mary Sue]

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.

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…

Care For Some “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Dessert?

I condone poorly-written erotic fan fiction that finds its way to the mainstream. Good for it! And I obviously condone dessert. Duh. But I’m not sure that I condone them together. We get it. People have an appetite for BDSM erotica. And for sweets. But are Fifty Shades of Grey inspired desserts really necessary? I shall pass. [Buzzfeed]

Erotica Titles For Hot Summer Reading

Fifty Shades of Grey is heating up The New York Times best seller list, making BDSM erotica an official trend of the Summer. But the author, British Twilight fanatic E.L. James, isn’t the first to let the racy sex fetish inspire a novel. That form of fantasy has filled the pages of many books over the years, and in fact, erotic writing dates back at least two millennia to the Greek poet Sappho. If you want to give steamy reading a chance, here are seven titles to try besides Fifty Shades.

Delta of Venus is filled with a wide range of characters and situations. There’s a Hungarian man who seduces rich women only to steal their money, and a Parisian housewife who ends up in Peruvian opium dens. Something for everybody. It was first published in 1977 by French writer Anaïs Nin. Read more …

Director Hopeful Wants Ryan Gosling For “Fifty Shades of Grey”

Bret Easton Ellis is the newest director being tossed into the ring to helm the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation and he’s suggesting everyone’s favorite first love, Ryan Gosling, for the hard spanking, nipple clamping, domineering lead.

American Psycho and Rules of Attraction author, Ellis, is clearly no stranger to working with taboo subjects and is pitching his ideas to the studio to take the controversial and mega-successful movie on. He took to twitter to dig up some conversation over who should play the key romantic roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. To say a few people are interested is an understatement. Hollywood sees these as career making roles. Read more …
