50 Books Inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey
"It was damp, uncomfortable and didn't last very long but it's true what they say — you never forget your first shed." This is just one of the excerpts that we read in Fifty Sheds of Grey, an illustrated book featuring tweets from the 50ShedsofGrey Twitter account. Inspired by E L James's bestselling erotica series (but with shed-related themes "for the not-too-modern male"), this is just one of countless parodies, how-to companion books, critical reading guides, and even cookbooks the überpopular BDSM trilogy has spawned. There's Fifty Shames of Earl Grey, Fifty Shades of Gay, Fifty Shades of Chicken, and the bizarrely titled Fifty Shades of Grey Poupon. With a range from ridiculous self-published Kindle short stories to hardcover erotica, we aren't vouching for the quality of some of these — but if you need your Fifty fix, here are 50 books inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey!
