I'm an avid reader.  Usually I'm a shoot em up, bang em up, who done it, type reader.  But with all the talk about 50 Shades of Grey, I had to see what all the hype was about.  I'll admit I was hooked from the first few chapters. But it wasn't what I was expecting.  Oh, it was erotic, but there were no words I needed to look up in a dictionary.  There wasn't any shocking moments.  I was expecting something more than just bondage and spanking.  Which begs the question, how many bored, unsatisfied housewives are there? 

I feel bad for people who don't have the chemistry in their lives that Christian Grey and Ana Steele have.  Finding that person that gives you butterflies in your stomach with just a glance from across the room is what life is about.  Having someone who knows the real you, inside and out and loves you despite your faults, is what we should all strive to find.  A relationship with such intensity and passion, you can barely breathe. Trusting each other so much you're willing to try new things to keep things alive and sexy. Luckily, I've found all that with my husband and hopefully you have too.

Guys, if you need help spicing things up, keep this in mind; there isn't a woman alive who wouldn't want her man to shove her against the wall and takes what's his.  She may not know how to tell you what she really wants, but deep down, the thought of you owning her, worshiping her, possessing every inch of her body is intoxicating.  A healthy sex life is important for every relationship and if you don't know where to start, read 50 Shades of Grey and buy a tie.  You're partner will thank you.

Let's be honest, we're all shades of gray.  Maybe not as many shades as Mr Grey and all his control issues and childhood nightmares. But black and white is boring.  It's the shades that make life interesting.

Several people at the station have read the book including a few men.  I doubt they moved on to the second book 50 Shades of Darker though.  As for me, I'm already half way through and its even better than the first.  Have you read the trilogy?  What did you think?
