By time this movie comes out no one will remember/care about the books. And that's a good thing.

It's looking more and more like this steaming turd will never get produced.

The world owes you a debt, Universal.

Shedim: Official reason: Scheduling conflicts.
What I think actually happened, option 1: Someone gave him the book to read.
What I think actually happened, option 2: Robert Pattinson called him up and told him to turn back before it was too late.

Option 3: Hunnam was originally offered $250,000 for the role, but since Pacific Rim was a blockbuster, his asking price went up and the studio decided to look for someone cheaper.

JayCab: Lady Indica: I haven't read 50 Shades of Grey ... but I'm sure while the BDSM scenes are grossly inaccurate kinkwise...

I've been wondering if it's one of those books that I need to read just so I can clearly explain what's wrong with it if I ever get asked (in the BDSM context, not just being bad writing). I seem to find myself talking to kink-curious people online a lot, and I figure it might be a good idea to be prepared to discuss the book if it comes up.

Nod, I've thought of that too. But it's soooo nails on chalkboard, I find it easier to tackle such in smaller bites. Plus then you also get into the kink community squabbles about what D/s REALLY is, who's a hobbyist, why proDommes aren't real because real Dommes do it for the joy and not profit, it's worse than a bunch of Christians squabbling over dogma. I have my personal snobbery, I really do...but I also try to always recognize it as such and not as a 'One True Way'. The last Domme issue I biatched about was a self styled 'Dominatrix' selling labia pics, and rather than comment on what I think about it, I merely noted that I'm a snob. Addressing the irk without demeaning the people involved. I'm a snob, not 'They're _______'

All that being said, the Christian analogy (and I'm not mocking your religion guys, it's a good analogy is all) holds up in that while there might be squabbles about what D/s is or isn't or 'One True Wayers' Christianity there's certain components that must be present. Like you're not Christian if you don't believe Jesus ever existed, it defies the definition of it, like that's something without any serious debate. So too are issues of consent and abusiveness. One may quibble about nuances, but consent issues are a BFD in the kink community, and the need for clarity in communication so critical because of the nature of what's going on. And because D/s can attract psychopaths, narcissists, amoral sadists, etc. what is and is not abusiveness is something constantly discussed. In the pro community (sex worker, though not all Dommes/Doms ID as such - it's just someone getting paid to do it by the client) the discussions of consent, abuse, etc. are quite different than in people who are negotiating their parts in a mutually pleasurable/fulfilling sexual relationship and what that relationship entails. Sex workers have a generalized layout of this, so that makes it easier at the start.

Anyhoo, not a bad idea on the debunking, but IMHO more trouble than it's worth, though I'm sure there's FASCINATING discussions about it on fetlife. ;)

"It was bliss having his cumtree probed inside me again; stuffing my enchilada of love with 10 inch purple battery-operated monster just didn't get my gammon alley splurging like it used to. After having my gashtray slammed, he then proceeded to hammer my turd cutter. The unrelenting orgasms from his cervix cigar pounding my wizards sleeve made me come so hard, I began sweating like a blind lesbian in a fish shop. My ladytown was trembling like Micheal J. Fox licking a car battery. Now, I've seen more helmets than Hitler, but the sight of his disco stick made my spaff seep like a George Foreman grill."

"I awoke the next morning with my calamari cockring still dripping. I thought it was over but his huge penis had other ideas. The unrelenting orgasms from his greasy slimelight pounding my shame portal made me come so hard, I began sweating like a paedo during a prison riot. By now, my hairy spunk dungeon was oozing like there was a midget inside me with a super soaker. Hours of farking like this would leave any girl's flappy meal looking like a bucket of smashed crabs, and I was no different! After having my quivering mound of love pudding hammered, he then proceeded to slam my turd cutter."

There's no point in making 50 shades unless it's a hard rated R, or even X.

I think the time has passed for this.  It was a fad book.  It's done now.

The book is a piece of filth trash and the movie seems to be headed toward the same fate. How about we save the millions from producing and creating this shiat show and put it towards something of merit. Like another Sarah Jessica Parker RomCom.
