Fifty Shades

If you have two eyes and two ears...

you’ve seen and/or heard about the
unadulterated “adult” novel

Fifty Shades of Grey,
by E. L. James.

And if you are blindfolded and in the dark...
then it sounds like you may very well be into the storyline.

"Fifty Shades of Grey" has all the trappings...
and strappings of porn.

soft porn. hard porn. mommy porn.

And apparently "Fifty Shades of Grey" is the first of a trilogy:
"Fifty Shades Darker"
"Fifty Shades Free"
Nothing like a smut trilogy to get the juices flowing.

The British author has certainly pushed a
few buttons,
rang a few bells,
and reddened a few cheeks.

I’ve been handcuffed when it comes to reading 50 Shades of Grey.
(you know what I mean.)
I wasn’t quick to jump on the grey bandwagon.

Even though everyone was doing it
(ummm...again, you know what I mean)...
I was standing my ground. 

All the hoopla surrounding the book sent me in the other direction.
I decided to zig when everyone was zagging...
although that hasn’t always been the case. 
In the 80’s, I was totally on board with the linebacker shoulder pad look.

Through osmosis...
I am painfully aware
 that 50 Shades of Grey has to do with
dominance/submissiveness/discipline/losing control. 

Not to be confused with "Dr. Spock’s Baby and Chid Care" book
that deals with same matters
with a two year old. 

50 Shades of Grey has been criticized for being poorly written. 
Slap me silly
 (please be gentle),
but E.L. James wasn’t expecting an Award for her writing.
She was writing a smut book...not "War and Peace. "

Her characters rope readers into a fantasy that puts the "kinks" in kinky.
her readers are mostly interested in what is lying between the sheets...
of paper...
not her style of writing.


I have just finished reading
 “The Pig Did It”

which is a beautifully written and humorous book.
It's the first book of another triology,
"The Pig Comes to Dinner"
"The Pig Goes to Hog Heaven"
by Irish author, Joseph Caldwell.

Now I am betwixt and between
which trilogy I should be reading this summer:

The Smut Trilogy
The Swine Trilogy

Apparently with either trilogy...

I'm in for both

kinky and squealy
Holy Moses//Holy Shit
