    Default 50 Shades of Grey

    Just wondering how many females have read it...for the males , how many of your significant others have read it (mine refuses to).....for the females that have read it, did you find it demeaning or offensive to females or did you find it enlightening....

    I have heard differing opinions from my female friends...

    I would never read it, mainly because it was spawned by Twilight Fan fiction, the content does not bother me.

    My wife -until 50 Shades- would never read that kind of book, after about 20 of her friends read it and talked about it non-stop, she was forced to read it, and loved the book. It was a fantastic investment .

    Everyone that I know that has read it has told me in private and wouldn't admit reading it on line.

    For some reason they feel guilty about reading it. Sort of if you asked on line how many of your male friends would admit to reading playboy and not for the articles.

    I think that you would find that quite a few males would admit to perusing the occasional Playboy simply for to study the artistry of some of the top photographers in the business.
