I was one of the millions of people who saw 50 Shades of Grey this Valentine's Day Weekend. Just like the book, it broke all box office records and grossed $247 Million in world wide ticket sales. I've also been following the interest its generated by reviewers, bloggers, sex experts and the public on Facebook.
I'm unashamed to say that I'm a fan of the 50 Shades of Grey series, having devoured all three. BTW, the NYC Subway was packed with women reading that book so I was hardly alone. In my view, the book gave mainstream women the permission and opportunity to publicly indulge in two of their most common fantasies ...being taken by a strong, dominant man and being rescued by Prince Charming. 50 Shades of Grey also introduced millions of women to Kink or BDSM, albeit not exactly the way sex educators would have preferred.
The internet is buzzing about the 50 Shades of Grey movie trailer that was just released.
And predictably there are many people, particularly in the sexuality community, who are slinging arrows at the movie and the whole concept behind this book.
I take the opposite opinion because I believe that 50 Shades is a game changer for women's sexuality.
