They still bought it knowing it was SM. They might not like the story or the English used, but if they buy SM, is because they expect and want to read it. Most women dont buy books on how to fix cars, but they did buy 50 shades!
Gabi44, Ok, the women that you mention sometimes cant get away from that situation, that is true, but these women buying the book have a choice not to read a story about "consensual abuse", so why do they chose to read it?
OMG, de Sade was the top of the line in utter perversion. Fifty Shades is not de Sade. Whoa,let's not go there. Acting out fantasies in real life can be fun. How many in this forum have watched Korean dramas? The actors very often play the parts of the domineering,cranky, aloof,handsome, rich playboy CEO or hero ( Lee Min Ho in City Hunter),that eventually turns to jello over the awkward female. It's incredibly sexy and they do a lot with a wrist grab,hot,close look, or kiss. There's a lot of elevator kissing scenes,etc. It is pretty effective as a formula. BDSM however is a choice. Anything that is not mutual consent is not free choice. Fifty Shades was fifty shades of f****d up and knew it. The book doesn't promote BDSM or abuse, rather the opposite. It shows that not everything is right for everyone during a particular period of that person's life. While not everyone has a "playroom", there are consenting adults that do kinky that is not BDSM. Like elevator scenes.
Because in Reality most here are not really into that life. They just want the epic Love Story ,from whatever is hip to talk about, you will see in a few month people will realize that Fifty wasn't exactly what they wanted and they will look for something else. There are women who push this Book so it doesn't loose it's ranking, not because it's an interesting Book , no just so it's stays on top , like the Kartrashions or Paris Hilton or Jersey Shore, Teenage Moms ect ,despise the poor writing of an old cougar with a mind of a 16 year old High-school Girl
Hi Ebeth: how are you? Who's not following your link?? I see Gabi is as mental as ever, now it's the word "cougar" she's obsessed with, lol! I am (as I promised my daughter) reading the perks of being a wallflower, I am taking a break, YA, can't really deal with it, lol! But a promise is a promise :(
your lack of respect reflects what you are. That is why you cannot respect what other people like. your 2ex life must be so much fun and your men must be super satisfied. you were saying you might be PMS-ing, and maybe you are right, I suggest you read "The Female Brain" by neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine and read about the biological brain state that women have.
