A week ago hubby starts reading an article in the newspaper out loud to me. It is about a book called Fifty shades of Grey.
The article describes the book as Mommy Porn. The older woman’s version of the Twilight Trilogy. So I went ahead and purchased a copy on iBooks.
A week later I am reading book 2 – Fifty Shades Darker.
When I started
Fifty shades of Grey , I first looked at the number of pages (around 1,500) and I was a little concerned about being very bored with it. I generally read erotica and romance novels as a quick read in bed before nodding off. It clears my mind and it is a welcome change after a stressful day.
I found Fifty shades of Grey very easy to read. It is about a young virgin college graduate who goes to interview a billionaire in place of her sick friend. Needless to say she is not a virgin for long.
A few pages in and suddenly we are introduced to BDSM and the Red Room of Pain.
Now a few months back I read a book called The claiming of Sleeping Beauty. This was my first introduction to BDSM and I was absolutely horrified. It was a dreadful book with a dreadful story. I suppose you are asking why did I read it then. Well the truth is out of curiosity. It certainly was not erotic (to me) but it did make me aware of this alternative lifestyle – one I don’t want anything to do with.
So all of a sudden I am having a flashback of this book. But still I did not put in down – I kept reading.
This book is so much different to The claiming of sleeping beauty. It is an introduction to BDSM. It explains all the rules and how it works and I found myself very curious. Most of the sex scenes involve what the billionaire describes as Vanilla sex. Which is just usual sex with no bondage or pain or punishment involved.
It is definitely erotic and you will definitely want to get a copy for yourself to read.
