The book was retarded. It's meant for people with double digit IQs. If you are into reading at a 5th grade level, go for it. You will hopefully be naive enough to not notice the gross character inconsistencies. It's not just a fantasy character that could never exist in the real world, it's not a complex character, it's a very poorly written character. I tried to get through the first book, but couldn't. Roughly halfway through, I had said, WTF? too many times, and put it down.

The problem I have with 50 shades is not really with the book or movie itself, but the way people are going about glorifying it. It's a dumb book and movie, and entirely amateur look on a scene that does have professional chapters to it. I'm okay with letting people do whatever they want in their bed, but the reality is that this scene is half hardcore addicts, with a good chunk of the remaining not following the rules, and essentially raping women and degrading them in various ways. It's rare you get a community that is truly pro and looking to expand their minds, push passed current limitations... but that could be said of drug users as well.

Overall, I just look the other way, and maybe let out a slight chuckle when someone mentions - 50 shades - . It's just a pathetic book, and the fact that so many are entertained by it... it's a bit scary, except I already accept most people are idiots. So it's rather meh.

It's not even the BDSM I have a problem with, I think that's a bit odd but each to their own. It's the fact it's an abusive relationship and people seem to think it's OK. BDSM types seem to be saying it's BS and insulting to their 'hobby'.

But hey, I watch Dexter and that's hardly morally sound either so whatever I guess. Just that millions of people around the world don't watch Dexter and then start thinking it's OK for people to be serial killers.
It's not that people want to try the strange kinky stuff I have an issue with, it's more that they seem to be praising the movie and falling uh oh so in love with Monsieur Grey even though the character is a Class A douchebag that is mentally and physically abusive. What next, tributes and wet knickers for Jimmy Saville?

Here, I found the link to the chapter-by-chapter analysis:

50 Shades of Abuse

And before anyone says this thread is about the movie, not the book, please keep in mind that the author was on the set EVERY day to ensure that the plot did not deviate from the book. And it is widely reported that she won her battles with the director, except in cases where certain explicitness would lead to NC-17 rating.

I think the only effect on women is lightening their purses. Movie tickets and twizzlers are expensive.
I would put the twilight movies in the same column.

I wonder how they portrayed her "inner goddess" doing salsa moves in the movie?

Are some women really afraid to use Google to explore their own sexuality? It's 2015...

I'm not so sure about this analysis. She had the choice to quit at every step of the way.


I always respect your opinion, Lucidity. So I won't say you are wrong. For my part, the fact that he got her all tipsy on purpose prior to consent, just makes that consent rather questionable in my mind. He knew what he was doing; she was a virgin who rarely drank. (Oh, hell I sound like they're real people-- of course they are words on a page/screen.) But what message do the words send? Probably different things to different people. I just don't like the message, is all.

But I do not squash your opinion, friend. Everyone matters.

We hear all the time about double standards for men, and how men get away with abhorrent behavior for being male. I wonder if a similar movie was made, with the roles reversed and marketed at men if the outrage would be louder or non-existent?

I have a feeling a movie for men about BDSM and sex would never get put into theaters. Besides, I doubt a group of "bros" would all want to go to the theater and watch rated R porn together.

Really, who watches porn with their friends, even rated "R" porn? What groups of women are going together to watch this? Strange behavior...strange.

We're good. It didn't really come off that way to me in the book. In fact the consent and getting consent and contract about consent thing was very overdone. But everyone has their own thresholds and levels of experience and tolerance, and I respect that. Neither of us like the message, for very different reasons maybe, but in the end it's just a book that excites some people. We've all read worse and better.

What gets me as a male are the mixed messages us guys are getting from the opposite sex.

We're told that "skimpy outfits do not imply consent", and we see women going nuts over a movie that glorifies domination and date rape.

To a 13 year old boy, what kind of message is he getting?

And once again, going with friends to watch porn is really strange to me. Perhaps I'm sheltered...do a lot of people sit around and watch porn movies/videos with their friends "just because"?
