Exploring BDSM: Why 50 Shades of Grey is Not a Guide
Reference – My Facebook Post
I live across from the new cinemas in Townsville and it seems there is a mass crowd heading to see the 50 Shades of Grey movie.
For myself, I read the novels wondering what all the fuss was about. And found myself quite disappointed on many levels by the books.
I found the writing style terrible, and the BDSM aspects disturbing because it seemed almost more like rape/assault rather than a consenting relationship. And I just found that the story overall was disappointing.
Now I will be honest, my understanding of BDSM is limited and I am interested in learning more. But my concern is that people wanting to dive in and explore BDSM based purely on these books without properly researching it and learning how to do things properly could end up hurt both physically and emotionally.
I’d like to hear others’ thoughts on the books, their content of them, and if anyone plans to see the movies.
If you’re curious about BDSM and have read or watched 50 Shades of Grey, you may want to reconsider using it as a guide. While many people are flocking to see the movie, it’s important to understand that the novels are poorly written and don’t discuss the importance of informed consent or safe words in depth. As a result, the BDSM content in these books can border on rape or assault, which is concerning.
As someone who is interested in BDSM, it’s essential to do your research and communicate with your partner before exploring this world. You can find plenty of resources online to help you understand BDSM and learn how to safely practice it. Additionally, it’s recommended to seek out professional Doms who can help you explore BDSM in a safe and consensual manner.
