Borstal mentioned it on FB this morn, don't wan't to quote his friends but apparently men mentioning it is Freudian...

She's right, I've always secretly desired to have sex with my GF while she is on her period...

All the women (at least it seems like all of them) at my work are raving about these books and I've just read on facebook that one of my male colleagues has bought the first one "just to see what all the fuss is about" I really do despair.

I don't want to say anything to them because I'll just feel guilty afterwards, it's not really doing any harm is it?

Just going to avoid any mention of it until all this blows over, I hope a movie is never made.

Some of the shit people are coming out with about everyone having to read this amazing book is winding me up. Can't bring myself to say owt to em though.


I got it on Saturday night when my friends were round for a drink before a night out. She mentioned that she was reading it and how it was so so good and I had to read it because it was just so amazing. I said to her I'd heard it was crap and that it started life as Twilight fan fiction and she looked at me blankly. I had to explain to her what fan fiction is.

It's just socially accepted porn. Something the mums can talk about on facebook and feel a bit cheeky about.


Yes that it's so much it. It actually is making me quite annoyed if you need a shitty written book to make you feel able to discuss sex then there is something wrong with you.

The you is a you in general not you Stef.

OK, I calmed down after my FB rant were I spelled write as right . The women on reception were whispering about it as I signed out to go for a hospital appointment. On the way home I had to go into Asda(s) to get some milk, bread and dishwasher tablets. I checked out the book section to see how much they were selling the Game of Thrones books for. I was only there a minute.

In that minute four middle aged women seperately walked over asking the assistant if they had 'that' book. By the time #4 asked I'd had enough. I stood up and a bit too loudly said 'for fucks sake' and stormed off.

This is getting to me more than it should.

This is also better written than Fifty Shades of Grey. Even with its poor grammer and high chance of spelling errors.

It sounds like that episode of south park where the boys write that book "The tale of Scrotie McBoggerballs" and it becomes a number one best seller.




It really does seem that way! There's women on about it at work as if it's some life defining literary masterpiece.

I just want to tell all my friends to wake up and realise that they are actually reading "Fifty shades of fucking crap"

I was looking at the books in Sainsbury's this morning before thinking that I didn't want anyone thinking that I was looking for "that" book and quickly walked off.....

Load of old bollocks........... literally!

Surely you should take off and nuke her from orbit. It's the only way to be sure...

Did you miss the chapter where she lies, spreadeagled at the bottom of the slide, whilst a "stimulated" Grey comes sliding towards her yelling "Once more unto the breach"...?

Best part IMO

And the picture is grey. What more do you need?

Was quite disturbed this morning when I went to work and the middle-aged women were asking me if I had done any of the things in The Fifty Shades of Grey book. Got very disturbed when one of the middle-aged women started talking about how wet it made her when reading it.

And yet when I told a woman in work about my experience watching the lesbian scene in Bound, I got a restraining order.

Political correctness gone mad...

I had to abandon my Empire porn story when the mods got wind of it. It was about me being able to come through the screen of willing female posters and seduce them. Like a kind of 'let the right kilo in'. I was always a gentleman and milktray sales were set to esculate, but they said no because the technology was 'facile' and 'asanine'. I can print the full post in full but they were concerned about my ability to handle a tampon scene. To be honest anyone who knows me well, knows I can write a tampon scene.I could write the shit out of a tampon scene. When I told the mods that, they said my metapore was too extended and I should move to New York. It was a weird post, I'll post it here if anyone is interested.

Can you just clarify what you mean when you say "come through the screen"...

This is part of the problem. People think that Shades resembles a real BDSM relationship, which is doesn't and pretty much every person I've met who has read it would have an aneurysm if they tried half the things in the book.

There's actually some well written, properly edited BDSM grumble out there but this is just awful.

This kind of reminds me of the random hype when The Da Vinci Code came out. People who do't normally read books raving about how good it was. People going on about it like it was the most influential literary masterpiece ever. To me it was a poorly written, cheap thriller(although boring as bat shit) with tiny chapters that made non-readers feel like they had accomplished something after reading three pages.

Telling people was fine, recording yourself watching it and uploading the videos is what got you banned.
