50 Shades of Self Promotion



   Hi everyone, as you can tell from the post title, this post is all about meeeeeeee...  I was recently interviewed by the lovely Veralyn, on the 50 Shades of Grey phenomena.  I spoke from an educator's standpoint, about the pros and cons of the series.  Here is my take on 50 Shades of Grey: it's not my preference but if it gets people talking about sex and their desires, then I'm happy.  Communication is so important! However, 50 Shades of Grey is not a sex manual, it is fiction.  I mean you wouldn't take friendship tips from The Real Housewives, would you?
Have you guys read it? I would love to hear your feedback!  If you have questions about the interview subject, feel free to email me!

Let's get social!

  1. Taking friendship tips from The Real Housewives is just silly. I take all of mine from The Avengers. And no I have not read the book.

  2. I haven't read 50 Shades, it's not really my thing. I tend to be less interested in books that are the "it" book of the moment. A few friends of mine have read it and think its so awesome, but I've also heard from other people that it's just really stupid and horribly written. I'm just eh about it, what ever floats your boat!
    P.S. love your braid!

  3. I agree with the two comments above ^ and would like to ask, what has the European view on 50 shades been? As the dominatrix said- Safe,Sane and consenting, that's the way to go. BB2U

  4. I haven't read the book and don't plan to. I did find it very interesting that the one of the girls interviewed in the video brought up that the race factor in how the sex in the book was received. Do different races have different sex? I thought that was a very interesting point, and good question Babushka! I wonder how European audiences responded to the book.

    BTW* You're hair was soooo cute! Girl that braid was everything!!

  5. I haven't read it, but I want to. Mainly because it seems like everyone I know has read it! I think it has exposed a common practice and has introduced it to many people as something that is okay to do. I am always for exposure and communication. What ever it is, we can talk about it and work it out. I am sure the promotion of the book has helped some people by giving them a way to express their curiosity or desires as well as end abuse and fear. Kudos for the interview and post!

  7. I barely got through the first book (and I'm an avid reader) and I haven't finished the second one yet. I don't see all the hoopla behind the books.

  10. Ha! I read the series and the only thing worth getting into is the head of Grey. He is messed up, so that was my main reason for reading- Pysch Consult.

  11. Hi everyone! First of all, thanks for all your comments! Can i confess something? I haven't finished reading the first book, the writing seems so tedious (at least to me). If you have read 50 Shades of Grey and are looking for more to read, may I suggest "The Story of O" and Anne Rice's "Sleeping Beauty Chronicles"? As most of you stated, I am all for honest communication when it comes to sex. I try to keep as open a mind as possible because maybe to someone else, what I like to do may be thought of as obscene. It's all a matter of perspective. If this is a topic you guys would want to hear more about, let me know!

  12. I haven't read the 50 Shades of Grey series. I've heard it isn't very well written; as an author myself I cannot read anything that doesn't move me and, as you said, tedious. However, I'd love my book, Love Trips, to get the same notoriety. What author doesn't? I guess stories aboutwhips and chains sell more than stories about drunk dialing, humorous anecdotes, and bad yet relatable relationships?
