She's actually more irritating.

Man Assaults Girlfriend with Steak Sauce over ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

A British man was charged with assault for his attempt to stop his girlfriend from reading the sexy bestseller.

While the erotic trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey has been credited with arousing the passions of millions of women around the world, for one British man, it only aroused his wrath.

When Emma McCormick, of Carlisle, UK, read aloud passages from her copy of Fifty Shades to her long-term boyfriend Raymond Hodgson, he wasn’t thrilled about hearing McCormick narrate the book’s racy scenes of bondage and seduction. Hodgson, 31, later told authorities that he thought the book was “pornographic” and “distasteful” and didn’t feel it was appropriate for McCormick to read it. He was so bothered, he drove to McCormick’s home the following day and, armed with a bottle of steak sauce, resumed the argument. The fight escalated until Hodgson pulled out the bottle and squirted it in McCormick’s face. He reportedly said he wanted to show her what ‘saucy’ really meant.
I read that yesterday. Some folks were making some great food-related puns.

Shame Hermiod isn't around to let us all know that people don't understand BDSM.
You owe me a new keyboard.

I read all three books in the Fifty Shades trilogy, and they were awful. AWFUL. It had nothing to do with the sex, but the writing itself. Clichéd characters, repetitive writing (I wanted to stab myself every time ELJ mentioned Ana's "inner goddess," who is basically an irritating shoulder angel with a closetful of costumes and props), all spiced up with just enough BDSM to make people pay attention and hopefully forget that right under the surface it's Yet Another Hackneyed Girl-Saves-Self-Destructive-Guy-From-Himself Story. Not worth your time or your money. I wish I could get both of mine back.
