- Fifty Shades.
it’s lady-pron. gets them all worked up.
No it’s not and no it doesn’t. I am so sick of listening to people banging in about this effing book. It’s a book for Christ sake. It’s kinda like that crap Joseph kony video that went viral, completely annoying. People are sheep. Drives me mad, there are plenty of books of erotica, DVDs/clips on the Internet yet women have ‘only just discover pron’ because of this stupid book? Get a grip. 😆Posted 5 years agoyunkiMember
I’m sure there’s a demographic of prim and/or proper housewives out there who have embraced this ‘pron dressed as romance’ with a deep sense of relief..
AFAIK it’s just one of those naif service station erotic fiction novels that went viral after a celeb was papped reading it..
it’s making an estimated 800k per week in sales, with a movie in the pipeline and two more parts to the (probably very hastily constructed) trilogy..Posted 5 years ago
the power of the intrerwebz 😯
Mmmmmm, from what I’ve been told/read about the book, if being beaten as part of a sex act by a man who has a deep desire to harm his mother after his childhood abuse then there are a lot of very confused women out there.
You’re right it’s not going to do much harm and if it it kick starts a few fantasies and deminished sex lives hats a good thing but it’s just a book, it really does not need the attention it’s getting. I might spark up a convo about shaving Ryan’s privates or Debbie does Dallas next time it comes up 🙂
Edit: why are my sentences not finishing? Stupid phone.Posted 5 years agoKing-ocelotMember
Miss Flees brought the first one home from someone at work and I had a read to see what the fuss was about. I got about half way through the first book then decided that I couldn’t care what happens next and closed it. It’s easy and fast to read as badly written. If the majority of your reading is OK or Now magazine then you will be at home with it. The much hyped sex seemed to be present only to keep prim virginal types interested in what otherwise a mundane love story. It was like an American mini TV series were producers could see ratings would flag as it was a bit weak so sex scenes were added to keep intrest, the closer to the bone the better (pardon the pun) I have heard there are massive twists but I couldn’t keep myself interested long enough to find out as I was busy reading proper books and having real sex.
One for unadventourous housewives who don’t read much and want to be seen on the lastest bandwagon.Posted 5 years agotheragMember

Anyone one else’s partner reading this shite?
I’m a reader. My wife isn’t, however she’s a voracious appetite for this stuff.
Should I read it?

NO! Go out on your bike and come home to the afterparty. I predict a 2013 baby boom.Posted 5 years agoMrSmithMember
I think the hype is getting out of hand, everyone is buying it because everyone else is buying it LOL!
just like harry potter then, if i see more than one prole on the train reading it then it’s one to avoid.
there is so much good fiction out there to read, why go near that drivel.Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
I think it is another book that encourages non-readers to read which is all good. Any side effects are useful.
It doesn’t matter how pap it is. Harry Potter wasn’t that well written, it was hard for me to finish the first book but my son loved it. And that Da Vinci code bilge was awful but it got lots of people’s heads in books.Posted 5 years ago
