Talking Sense About Fifty Shades of Grey, or, Fanfiction, Feminism, and BDSM by John LennardHeard of Fifty Shades of Grey but dont know what the fuss is about? Read it but not sure what to think of that fuss?
The mass media have created a lot of heat about E. L. Jamess trilogy, but shed very little light on it. This short, analytical guide looks at her publishing phenomenon and asks why it matters to readers that it started as fanfiction, why so many feminists object to it, and why practitioners of organized, consensual BDSM also have issues with it.
Clearly, concisely, and readably written, it reveals a story from within fandom that the media have ignored, and makes connections with the political, moral, and ethical issues that are affected by Jamess writing.
John Lennard was formerly Professor of British and American Literature at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica, and edits the Genre Fiction Sightlines and Monographs list for Humanities-Ebooks. He has published two collections of essays on genre fiction, Of Modern Dragons (2007) and Of Sex and Faerie (2010).

There are some incidents from the books, though the timeline may change and I've added my own twists and plots. However, if you enjoy Ana and Christian's love story then perhaps you'd like to give this story a try. If you do, I hope you'll enjoy. Ana bent over as Christian ordered and gripped the edge of the narrow table with both hands, her cheek pressed against the highly polished surface. She concentrated on his voice as he explained what he was about to do — hit her six times with whatever was his torture instrument of choice and she was to count with him. She wondered for a moment why he would insist on such a thing, but her thoughts were cruelly interrupted when the first blow fell on the tender skin of her butt.
I tried to ignore the coughing in the seat beside me. A greater case should have been made for Kate, my best friend and roommate, to stay at home on the couch. However, as Kate said, any journalist worth their salt would not send someone else in their stead. She is right of course. I cannot even imagine what would have happened if she had sent me alone to interview a C. My insistence that I drive her was agreed upon eventually; this, of course, I don't mind.
