Fifty shades of cliche bookslut

    • Society & Culture

It’s a tale as old as time: boy meets girl, boy stalks girl, girl freaks out that boy has a room full of whips and then love I guess? Yep, we’re talking about the phenomenon of 50 Shades of Grey. Everyone has an opinion on this book and Sam and Abby grapple with the question of how you critique such a popular book while respecting the genre. Did it help normalise erotic romance for women? Yes. Did it misrepresent the BDSM community? Also yes. The answer is, as always, complicated. A big thank you and shout out to our talented friends:
