A book that made reading about being spanked while having ben wa balls in a woman’s vagina a popular literary pastime. Rarely does a blockbuster best seller receive so many bad reviews from people who really wanted to like it. That’s because it was not very well written. The selling points were a leading male character who was young, great looking, brilliant, with a big dick, billions of dollars in the bank, and who was fixated on the protagonist who he enjoyed having kinky sex with. The movie version was even worse than the book. At the same time that Fifty Shades of Grey was a best seller, our government was spending $2 billion dollars on abstinence-only sex education.
