Create Your Own 50 Shades of Grey: Here's How
"Sex in the air, I don't care, I love the smell of it. Sticks and stones may break my bones. But chains and whips excite me." - Rihanna,"S&M"
The past year has been a sexual awakening of sorts for women from all walks of life -- from Holly Homemaker to Patricia Professional. Women who once recoiled from the mere notion of intercourse have turned into naughty nymphs starving for sex. And it's no big secret what's behind the monumental movement.
It's "the book," better known as 50 Shades of Grey, that's on the tip of every woman's tongue. Responsible for the birth of "mommy porn," 50 Shades has sold more than 20 million copies and continues to dominate the New York Times bestsellers list after 22 weeks. There's no denying that 50 Shades has the secret sauce that women have subconsciously been craving all this time.
For those who aren't among the millions who have vigorously pored over the 382-page read, the titillating trilogy is about recent college grad Anastasia Steele's torrid affair with mysterious, handsome businessman Christian Grey. On the surface, it may sound like the typical romance until learning that the very core of their relationship is a submissive-dominant relationship that revolves around BDSM. From riding crops to Ben-Wa balls, the book leaves little to the wildest imagination.
