    Re: [FAIR WARNING] "Fifty Shades Of Grey"

    Is this one of those books that fools dames into thinking that there is a handsome, mystery stranger somewhere out there for them?

    "Suck my cock you ugly sow!" is something that will be said repeatedly throughout my book.

Maybe tomorrow will be better for him."

    I think even if they tone it down a bit for the movie, they're going to have an Eyes Wide Shut situation, where it pretty much trods right on that line and yeah, bribery.
    You know, this book isn't that unusual and it isn't particularly well-done for that sort of thing. That seems to be the general reaction among the romance writing erotica people.

    There's a great article here by the Smart Bitches (Yes, they are smart. And they are bitchy. And awesome. The full name of the website is "SmartBitches love Trashy Books."

    Btw, if you want really good BDSM porn, you need Emma Holly. Particular "Menage." She's got some werewolf stuff. Ignore those. Buy the contemporaries.

    No, I think it's about exploring personality through BDSM rituals. Which is legit enough for adult content but this isn't the book I'd pick to make the poster child for it. It's funny watching mainstream media go ga-ga over something that's been happening among women readers for about a decade now. Who the heck do you think is pushing the digital revolution?

    Anyway, here's the original review of 50 Shades of Grey on Smart Bitches:

    Her gross, dirty panties got soaked, and she was ready.
    This is so disturbing, yet I cannot stop laughing. You are too funny!
