    I’m a communication studies professor (including sexual communication) and a student recently told me to check out your YouTube. I’m already a huge fan!

    I love this line Susan: “I found myself begging for a blindfold just so I didn’t have to read anymore.” Well said!

    I enjoyed reading your take on 50 Shades. I like your point that it’s just fantasy and not supposed to reflect real BDSM. I enjoyed reading your take on 50 Shades. I like your point that it’s just fantasy and not supposed to reflect real BDSM. I’ve noticed it’s getting people talking & exploring their sexuality more so it can’t be that bad even though the writing totally is

    I did read all three books, though I have to agree with you, Suzy — the series was terribly written. Every time a character said “Er….” my hair stood on end, my eyes spun in their sockets and I had brain shudders. But I kept on reading because I wanted to know what all the kabummel was about. I realized early on that this was basically a romance novel in all its glory. Beautiful young SPECIAL girl falls for handsome, rich TROUBLED man… clearly the romance genre. HOWEVER — the author’s brilliant move was to change her story from the vampire genre, which it was originally, to a romance plot spun around BDSM. That was a stroke of genius, however momentary. As for the movie… not sure I want to see it either, though I’m sure none of the characters will say “Er….”

      Penny, for me it was “clambered.” The book was so horrible (I only read one and refused to further torture myself). With Anne Rice’s erotica as the standard, this was about as erotic as rutting swine!

    I haven’t read this book yet but after Dr Susan’s review I don’t feel motivated to read it anymore. Poorly written prose for any purpose, destroys the main message.

    Excellent review and perspective doctor. I personally, as a writer, read a hand full of pages and refused to read more. The material aside, the style of writing is a C in grade school English and an F from middle school upward. I’m not into BSDM in any form, so I appreciate the perspective of consensual lessons in BSDM. Perhaps the erotic power to sell the number of books it has is in the lack of these lessons. May be what some people want is genuine fear. As disclosure, let me state that I am a 19th century romantic without hope of another’s true love not understanding why the loss of true love in this world seems so celebrated.

    I really connect with you on this. I, however, have not read the book, nor will I ever want to. Hearing how badly it is written turns me off. But I do applaud it helping repressed people think about sex.

    Oh Susan, well said! That is exactly how I feel about it. I’m gonna quote you.

    That’s very great article about the 50 shades. Many of my women also love those things but only sometimes do they admit it. A lot of them are after my money but mosta the women I play with love to get a red hot as you say ina Jewish “Tussie” o culo.

    Thank you for all your writings and insights.
