    Eh, BDSM culture seems to employ a lot of leather. :p

    What about those of us who are obsessed with super-strong, smokin' hot people punching each other and having lots and lots of mind-blowing sex? :)

    (edit: Occasional sex with robots is optional)

    But how much of that shagging is actually seen/described? ;)

    Topless Robot: where you go for massive amounts of WTF fanfic. There's some there that's downright traumatizing. And there's some that makes you wonder what the author was on.

    I know a couple of women who never read books that have picked up the 1st of these and seem to be really into it.

    So it's definitely penetrating (ha) into the population of people who don't normally read, and I thin that has a lot to do with it's success.

    I tried reading it out of curiosity and was kind of bored by it.

    I'm not gonna (or want to) argue against BDSM, what consenting people get up I couldn't care less about. But all I'm saying is I have read the book, and it's fairly explicitly stated that Christian Grey gets his rocks off by inflicting pain on women.

    I find it odd that there are age limits on games, but there a young girls buying this book.

    "Puts the 'B' in to Anal" is a cover quote if I ever saw one.

    Who's reading this?

    Maybe you need to listen to it instead:

    If I had that audio version I might just be able to get through this book instead of giving up reading just a few pages of the Amazon Look Inside feature.

    I have managed to finish the 1st book, but I don't think I can make it though the other two.

    Twilight and Stephenie Meyer could have the last laugh though if only because this series was actually a Twilight fanfic published FREE on fanfiction.net a few years ago. Christian and Ana were Edward and Bella.

    No :p

    It was an extremely popular fanfic named "Master of the Universe" by the same writer (or MOTU in twific parlance). Her moniker as a fanfic writer was "Snowqueens Icedragon".

    There was even a YT vid made (the most watched one, at least) by JustBiel that's been since re-uploaded from what I can tell. It was hugely popular with millions of hits at one point:

    And this is the second vid she put up. They were both hugely popular. It doesn't surprise me that 50 Shades is this popular. After MOTU was published, some fans even wanted Pattinson to sign on a MOTU printout, from what I've heard lol. Both Pattinson and Stewart knew about MOTU. It was that popular. I'm not surprised she went to a publisher with it.

    The Twilight equivalent, just more successful.

    My Immortal was Harry Potter. And someone's actually come forward on FF saying he was Tara Gilesbie.
