“Fifty Shades,” an erotica trilogy dubbed“mommy porn” by some, is rapidly becoming a cult hit among women in New York City, who are exchanging well-worn paperback copies and excited whispers about the book’s “red room of pain” (a sex playroom).
The BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism) novel is currently sitting in 28th place on the New York Times bestseller list and is topping Amazon and Barnes & Noble charts.
It’s like “Twilight” for the grown-up set. Except, with lots of sex instead of vampires and abstinence.
Close your eyes, flip to a random page, point to a line and you’re basically guaranteed to land on a graphic, adjective-laden sex scene (often involving multiple props).
One 40-year-old mother-of-three said that Fifty Shades is ‘just a fun escape from the daily mundane of trudging kids around and, you know, marriage’
Unlike the florid descriptions found in your typical drugstore-variety bodice ripper, the details in “Fifty Shades” are reserved for the sex acts themselves.
The piece of erotic fiction is no convenient handbag read – its 1,200 pages, an armful in itself, is laden with steamy writing that makes it far from easy to read in public places. But that doesn’t stop the female fans – they are scooping up the Kindle edition.
Happy reading everyone! Share it with your partner and see what happens.
