Okay see this is the issue. That movie is crap anyway. 99% of adults at this point see it as a joke. The only adults who don’t are lonely, vanilla, boring housewives who have so little actual sex they need Twilight fan fiction to get their thrill but thankfully there aren’t too many of those fans left. The rest of the fan base are girls like her, trust me I saw a lot of comments like “THIS CAN’T BE RATED R! I CAN’T SEE IT THEN!” And if they cut it down to PG-13 it will be even more of a joke. If you need to ask your mom to see this movie or if you can’t see it because it’s rated R and you are too young, you shouldn’t be seeing it.
Besides the fact that it’s NOT about BDSM it’s about abuse, the fact that people are still seemingly interested in this instead of thinking it’s a massive joke sickens me. Take it from someone who lives the lifestyle and actually KNOWS what BDSM is. If you want a good book read The Story Of O. In fact there are probably 700 Harlequin novels written WAY better than this pile of crap. They waited too long to do the movie because E L James demanded 100% creative control over it which means it’s just going to be as bad as the books since E L James can’t fucking write for shit and doesn’t know what kink is. It’s appalling that my lifestyle is being represented this way, others as well. Please just don’t go see this pile of shit, use the money to buy a good, accurate book on BDSM and let this thing die already.
I’ve only read the first novel and it reads like really, truly, terrible fan fiction. The author has no writing skills whatsoever. The only part that turned me on was the little bit of spanking that only lasted two paragraphs (if that; and yes, I don’t mind admitting my kinks on here).
Christian Grey did not sound attractive; he sounded sick, mentally and physically. The main character: I get that she’s supposed to be this strong, independent woman who eventually submits…but she doesn’t submit to a new kind of pleasure…but to a truly emotionally and physically abusive man!
Needless to say, I was not wholly impressed and, if I do end up seeing this movie, it will only be for shits and giggles.
E L James wrote most of this story on a blackberry smartphone and uploaded it to fanfiction.net. It’s a piece of shit. Just from that.
