OK - who is reading 50 Shades of Grey?!?! It's bat-shit crazy I tell ya!
My bookclub is reading this book and when my friend J (I thought it best to not use her name here!) suggested it to the group, she described it as "Mommy porn". It was immediately approved. I thought "How bad could it be?".
OH MY GOD IT'S PORN!!!
We're talkin' full blown page after page of explicit dirty sex. Seriously. It's shocking! I was waiting outside my kid's school to pick him up, reading the book in my car, and I got nervous that someone would see me reading it. I turn red if anyone near me mentions it. I'm getting flushed right now writing about it! I'm telling you - it's lots and lots of sex sex sex.
And it's selling like crazy. Duh.
Everyone is talking about it. Text messages are being passed around all day:
"Just read the part with the balls" (please don't get confused - these are silver weighted balls)
"They would make great party favors!"
"Oh my - I haven't gotten there yet but I'm intrigued"
"Just got to the good part last night - yikes!"
"The good parts don't seem to stop"
And it's true - they don't seem to stop.
And the fact that this book is sold out everywhere, and it is being pre-sold as it is being re-printed, tells me a few things about us women these days:
- We are oversexed maniacs
- We are not gettin' enough at home (although this book helps - tmi?)
- We are not ashamed of enjoying ourselves!
I think all 3 are probably true.
And by the way, that girl in the book who has the big O every single time? Yeah, I believe that just about as much as I believe in vampires.
So if you want to see me turn 50 shades of blushed, go ahead and mention this book anywhere near me. I'm telling you, I flush immediately.
Did I mention it's a trilogy? I don't know if I can handle it!!!
(I think I can handle it.)
