. . . I'm starting to think it isn't that difficult to write popular novels.
Especially popular sex novels. Anyone here old enough to remember Naked Came the Stranger?

Eh, BDSM culture seems to employ a lot of leather.
And whips. And ropes, chains and handcuffs (don't forget my favorite part!)

This has to be the best review of this book.

Leaving aside whether or not this unexpected sight would be sexy (I can't be sure; it's only ever happened to me on public transport), let's examine what Christian says as he stands there, wanger in hand: "I want you to become well acquainted, on first name terms if you will, with my favourite and most cherished part of my body."
Or, as Jackson Browne once said: "Honey, let me introduce you to my redneck friend."

. . . I read the wiki article on the plot for both the main book and trilogy plans and just...this is outselling two major franchises? can't they just google some fetish porn?
Most internet porn, whether fetish or plain vanilla, is made by and for men. I can see how an erotic literature series written with the female reader in mind would be popular. Although, after reading the review linked above, I do wonder what all the fuss is about.

ADDENDUM:
This, I think, is the real 21st-century fantasy. That's the erotica. A masterful man who demands, constantly, that our heroine eats.
Ah, now I get it!

BTW, when I saw "Mommy porn" in the thread title, I thought it had something to do with incest. Oooooh, do I have a dirty mind!
