Beth7210 :  the books were terrible and vanilla too. It took until book 3 before there was ANY anal action, and then it was just a little butt plug.

janne91 :   thebeekeeper :  this. She changed the character names, and located it in Portland/Seattle instead of on the Olympic peninsula. 

And one major reason their relationship is so fucked uo and abusive is because that’s the relationship the characters have in twilight. Edward Cullen (Christian grey) is a vampire who is madly in love with Bella swan (Anastasia Steele) but he’s also incredibly dangerous to her because he’s a vampire and that also makes him want to bite her and drink her blood. So he’s tortured by this ‘i want her but I’ll kill her’ thing. And Bella falls in love with him because he’s gorgeous and she’s really naive and believes she’s not in any danger because he would never do anything to harm her. The whole thing is a BIT more forgivable in the context of vampires and teenagers – but when you take it into the real world a la 50 shades, it’s just soooooo fucked up

You know I always found it amazing that women were attracted to Christian. (The only reason I read the books was because the women where I worked were pushing them in my face and telling me they were amazing and all of them were just gaga over this fictional guy.) The only reason anyone thought he was attractive is that he was described as good-looking, powerful and rich when in reality, if a guy a girl just met stalked her to FIND OUT WHERE SHE WORKED and on their first “date” he whipped out a non disclosure agreement, her friends would be screaming at her to go out and get a restraining order. 

And I’m sorry but the fact that he was so powerful and wealthy made the whole thing that much scarier for me. He could basically do what he wanted without repercussions because of his money and connections.

Oh and when Anastasia finds out that she’s pregnant and he freaks out because they’ve only known each other a couple of months? Ummm… You’re already MARRIED to this person – married without a prenup. How long you’ve known each other as an argument against children is no longer valid. You’ve already tied your lives together.

DanaWeddingGuest :  The soundtrack WAS really good actually. Well, for the first one, I haven’t seen the second. 

I read all 3 books, expecting it to get better. It did not. I did watch the first movie but really didn’t like it lol. Except as dana said, the music was nice.

I’ve found my like minded women! Haha I had to put that book down. I swear if she said “he grabbed me by my sex” one more time! It was a big let down. 50 Shades seemed like milk and cookies.

I shouldn’t comment and I hate being “that person”, you know the “Actually..*insert fun ruining fact*” person  but for the kink community those novels are a super toxic misrepresentation of smbd and the rest of the kink community.

Can a book series be more rapey? Like wasn’t this twlight fan fic? Which I mean, I am all for your consent withholding playtime but one is stalkey and the other wouldn’t know a safe word if it bit someone in the face, both of which create a super unsafe presidence.

Want none vanillia story time? Check out fetlife, which is like naughty facebook with graphic stories, pics, and videos from none fuctuonal charactors who u derstand the concept on consent! We got kinks, just all of them. I should know, I am kinky af.

Beth7210 :  honestly, I read all the books, they were OK. But the movies for me personally were very vanilla. I don’t know if it was the actors or the camera work. Just all very blah.
