What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

Mrs. Lioness,

I’ve followed your blog for some time, never submitting. But last night I had a revelation and wouldn’t you know this weeks theme induced something so humble within me. You see, I’ve spent a good portion of my sexual encounters playing out so many of my lovers fantasies… the nurse, the pony, the dominatrix, the whore, the stripper, the naughty school girl etc.. I’ve even had the pleasure of having generous and patient lovers who have delved deep into my own fantasies. So what’s left? My only fantasy left unfulfilled, left unsatisfied is one that’s simply me. Is that not humble or modest? I don’t know. For the love in my life to take me as I am, without dressing me up. To growl my true name, to fantasize about me just as I am. This is the other end of fantasy I think. When every outlet is exhausted and one longs to feel at home in their original skin, in their original sin. This picture isn’t much, but a whore stripped bare never is. 

Much love.

I didn’t understand that reference at first so I looked it up and apparently there were fifty-seven academics who theorized that Shakespeare was gay/bisexual.

Also, sonnet 57 is supposed to be about a guy that Shakespeare was in love with.

The Doctor remarks at one point in this episode that a skull looks like that of a Sycorax. Shakespeare claims he’s using that word, as he likes it. There is a Shakespeare character called Sycorax. #researchpayskids

I always love it when this shows up on my dash.

He patted his knee lightly. She shivered, then slowly approached him, tears beginning to well. She knew she was wrong. She knew she should have listened…
He took a deep breath and spoke softly. “You knew what would come of this, pet,” he said, his tone deep and stern.
"Yes, sir." Her voice trembled.
A rush of air filled her ears, followed by the sharp pop of flesh against flesh. The sting was like a flame to her backside. Again and again it came, each more painful that the last. Her act of disobedience raced through her head over and over, the pain of her regret flooding her mind. It was as if her body itself was punishing her.
When the pain was all but unbearable—silence. All she could hear was two breaths in sync, both heavy and labored. She clenched, fearing another blow. But it did not come. Just as her mind began to slow it’s thoughts she felt the cool caress of lips to on buttocks. Soft hands wandered up and down her legs. Kisses turned to a velvet tongue, slowing working it’s way inward towards her center. She breathed out long and low as hands and tongue came together between her cheeks for a long, soothing flow of pleasure.

Never once have I enjoyed giving a real punishment. Bear in mind, I’m a sadist. I greatly enjoy inducing pain. But never once have I enjoyed giving a spanking that was not meant for pleasure. Punishments are not pleasure. They are discipline. They are designed to correct. To educate. To show someone that disobedience will not be tolerated.
But it is also an act of love. It is an act that says, “You have disappointed me. But I love you enough to work past it.” This is why aftercare is so important. A punishment without aftercare is like a cut without a Band-Aid. Aftercare shows your submissive that no matter what, your love is still intact. After the pain, the healing begins, bringing us closer than ever before.

Though I have in the past, I don’t really like using the word “control” when referring to D/s relationships. I believe it has too much of a negative connotation. It implies that the one under the control has no say. As if they are blindly following orders. I hope this is never the case.
No matter how deep your level of submission is, as a submissive it is your duty to think for yourself. No Dom would ever even begin to tolerate a submissive who wants everything done for her. Thinking for yourself is part of what makes you human. Attempting to give that up is almost explicitly saying “I’m not a person, and should not be treated as such.” This, at best, would lead to the end of a relationship. At worst it would lead to abuse.
No Dom is perfect. We all make mistakes. And it is up to you to call us out on it. If your Dom loses his temper, it is up to you to point it out and calm him. If he instructs you to do anything that is beyond your limits, it is your duty to use your safe word and stop the situation before it gets out of hand.
The control of a Dom should never be absolute. It is you who allows it. And if your Dom is taking advantage of it, you are the only one who can make the decision to either stop it, or leave.
