Unless you’ve been living under a rock you have at least heard about – if not read – the fiction book Fifty Shades of Grey. This erotic trilogy is fast winning awards of distinction as it climbs its way up many best seller lists. And even many libraries are starting to stock it and looking at long waiting lists.
Because the book explores a politically incorrect sexual relationship between a dominant man and a younger, submissive woman, there has been almost as many negative critiques about its content as positive. Sex therapists and lay people alike have questioned the integrity of the book’s message.
