OK, I couldn’t resist a little light humour… especially as I like all things ‘ponygirl’ at the moment.
But while we’re on the subject – 50 Shades of Grey – love it or hate it?
I loved it. To be honest, the only thing I didn’t like was the way the BDSM relationship was portrayed to be slightly ‘unhealthy’ and that Mr Grey should be rescued from his life of kinky sex and brought back to the joys of plain old vanilla. I mean, who in their right mind would want that?
A life of no handcuffs, no rope, no gags, no silk scarves, no feathers, no corsets, no clamps, no blindfolds and (more importantly) no DOMINANCE or submission?
The reason the book sold so well? Women want excitement, they want storyline and they can read anonymously on their kindle/ipad/ereader devices these days… and the fact that BDSM is still a heavily unexplored subject for most. Curiosity killed the cat, or the horse…
We are being liberated to read what we like on the train, on the bus, the aeroplane – even at lunch break in the office, should we so desire…. is it a good thing or a bad thing? Answers on a postcard please, or (preferably) in the comments box below.
Well, have a great weekend all…
