Every woman in my work is reading this and since I'm the only male member of staff that's a lot. If it was a bunch of men passing around a wank mag we'd be called filth merchants but, for some reason, it's acceptable for woman to pass this around. Fifty Shade Of Grey? Fifty Shades Of Filth morelike. Down with this sort of thing.

My wife and her entire circle of female friends seem to be speaking about nothing else at the moment.

Mrs S. has just read this for her "book group".

She thought it was rubbish and is now reading the Hunger Games trilogy.

I just skimmed through it for the good bits.  :P

Read 50 S of G on my Kindle whilst sunbathing in Tenerife.  Erotic and enjoyable.  Thought provoking at times - what limits would you go to in order to satisfy your partner?  I had to make use of a towel to hide my rising excitement on several occasions :)

The Indie Chick borrowed it off her mate to take on holiday and ease the tedium while sunbathing over the last week.  Her verdict? 

"Awfully-written shite".

Having read a random few pages here and there, I can say it isn't even that good.

Check out the unfavourable reviews on Amazon; vastly more entertaining and more worthy of folks' time.

Louise thinks its very poorly written.  Anais  Nin was better apparently.  She's also worried about the amount of 16/17 year old girls who appear to be reading it and how it will give them a misleading idea of relationships.  The woman being the poor innocent having to be taught and controlled by the man.

EDIT;  She does think though that it will generate more discussion than any other book they've done at her book club.

This year's daVinci Code then, with added rumpy.

Every bloody woman I know is reading this and their reluctance to acknowledge that it's just porn is staggering!

Plus it gives young singletons like myself a very tough time thanks to the delusions it's now giving people. Lessons I've learnt from this book in order to be attractive to women:

Be young, handsome, intellegent, filthy rich, have a freakish obsession with BDSM, and have a huge penis...

1/6 is a start I suppose...
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Haven't read it. Mrs S hasn't read it. Neither of us are likely too.

But what's with using the seppo spelling of Grey Big Boy?
