50 Shades DEBATE

captainsgirl captainsgirl
Ok, yes I have read all 3 books of the 50 shades trilogy. And yes I loved them! Let me start by saying I am an avid reader of romance. The 50 shades book helped me grow. Number one it introduced me to BDSM. Upon research it is also how I came across Eden Fantasies. Now let me say, I am not a stupid person so I know the books are FICTION. So since the book interested me I took it upon myself to research what BDSM actually is. So what if some think it is poorly written, so what if some feel it portrays BDSM wrong, so what if people didnt like the characters...ITS FICTION! I have to praise the book because it excited me and opened up my sexuality on a whole new level.
Now I am reading 'Fifty Writers on Fifty Shads of Grey'. If you have not read it, I highly recommend it regardless if you loved or hated 50 shades of grey.
What are everyone eles's thoughts?

I read them and liked them. And that was before I learned it was originally Twilight fan fiction.

While I have no interest in Dom/Sub, Master/Slave BDSM, Top/Bottom play (every once and a while) is intriguing and hot.

I'll take my vanilla with toppings please

I read 1.5 of the books, and I'll finish it because I feel it's one of those cultural things I need to do. I understand it's fiction, but it's just not for me for many reasons.

I listened to the 1st book on my phone. I wasn't impressed - too much repetition. Glad you likes them - many, many people did, and I believe for the same reason you did. It introduces BDSM in a benign way - you don't have to be a Marque de Sade to enjoy some kink.
