50 Adult Stars And Professional Fetishists On Why They Hate Fifty Shades Of Grey
Stephen Williams stashed this in Sex
Marcia Baczynski, sex educator and communication expert “A film like Fifty Shades can be many things to many people: inspiration, a hot topic of conversation, something to eat popcorn to on a Saturday night, or a terrifying sign of our overall cultural decline and imminent doom. One thing it isn't is education. If Fifty Shades turns you on and you want to try some sexy power play or kink, take some time to learn how to do it safely from some of the many educators out there.”
Kitty Stryker, queer femme model and blogger “Fifty Shades of Grey's popularity is actually not in spite of but due to its heteronormativity, its classism, its whiteness, and its romanticised abusive dynamic. It's reflective of years of subconscious training of women that admitting sexual desire is shameful and being ‘taken’ allows you to avoid the blame, that the ideal partner is one who ‘just knows what’s best for you’, that ‘I’m yours, forever’ is a romantic thing to say and not a terrifying admission of codependency”
Mostly good comments.
