I'm surprised no-one mentioned this before.  :) 

As not being a big fiction reader, I was surprised that I read all 3 books in the trilogy.  But surprisingly enough - it was the storyline that kept me hooked.  Maybe I'm abnormal?  Or maybe I didn't like the main characters enough ( a control freak and a whiny, insecure girl?) ...  but most of the sex scenes didn't thrill me.  Only one scene (in the third book) did I find extraordinarily hot.   /makeout  Mmmm. 

Alright, fine.   I probably will go see the movie, though I'm really curious - if it isn't an x-rated movie - what will be left for content?

I finished the first and second book. I thought the sex scenes were somewhat hot but the characters bugged me tremendously.

Besides, being a Dominatrix, there were scenes that just weren't authentic to the art of BDSM. However, I get that the book was fiction. As well, I'd like to see the story written in the reverse, where the female is the Domme and the male is the sub. Written well, though.

That being said, I'm not sure it would make the best seller list!

Hmmm, Chase, I'm liking that book idea. I think we should write it  /cheerleader

Did anyone else pick up on the author's age and the name of the book?  Interesting and coincidental for me.

I would not call any of the trilogy literature by any means.  I don't know if the book editor was the same for all three books.  If so, you would have thought they would have pointed out the repetitive dialog between the two of them.
Outside this, the book has brought the rough sex topic out in the open. Plus, showed two people working on communicating their needs to each other. 

I would be interested in hearing what discussions our gentlemen have had outside our little realm.  Have they noticed an increase in women able to express themselves on their desires and needs? Have our gents read it? The men I have come across have been surprised on how much the book has been read and talked about.

I'm in on the movie.  I would like it as a XXX, but hopefully it won't go any lower than an NC-17 and please, Mr./Ms Screenwriter put in better dialog.

I do see there are more women who is explicitly able to express their desires and needs. Even the desire itself can make people orgy if your mind is in the right zone; but its first established on mutual trust.

I didn't read through this trilogy, but knows the story.

I think I'm the only pervert here. Or, at least I'm honest in revealing I like the sex scenes. But then, I like reading naughty novels in general.

I'm with you Kat, I like sex scenes too! And there's nothing like a good naughty novel to get the juices (er um, imagination, I meant, ha!) flowing!

In context of the book, bondage, I found the scenes tame by comparison to others in my library.  Would you put this in erotica more than in pornography? Would 50...Greys be a defining line between the two genres?

A Dominatrix?   Awesome.  Can I learn from you?  All kidding aside, it is something that interests me....

As many others have stated -  I didn't fully realize - yes - at least it does show 2 people communicating about sex, wants and needs.  In that way - it actually is pretty interesting.

Is there a book or series out there - the reverse of 50?  Where the female character is dominant?

The Marketplace series takes BDSM to a completely different level; a very interesting read but beyond where I would take it either as a dom or sub.

Don't know of a female dominant book out there.

Oooo  you just gave me a great idea.  Maybe I should start writing.   

Ha.  No actually I do dabble in writing erotica - even have tried writing that scenario out - but it's always pretty lame ....
