Fifty Shades of Grey: Hot Erotic Novels Stirring Controversy
Forget Twilight, there's a new fantasy book series turning on stay-at-home moms. Taking the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 spots on the New York Times digital bestseller list (the paperback comes out next month) is E. L. James's "Fifty Shades" trilogy, which begins with Fifty Shades of Grey and is followed up by Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. The series, which actually began on a Twilight fan fiction site, revolves around a virginal young woman who enters into a BDSM relationship with an entrepreneurial billionaire, and it's definitely getting people talking. While the troves of female fans of the steamy romance novels rave about it, some, like Dr. Drew, are concerned about violence against women being used as a sexual fantasy.
