Are we OVER Fifty Shades of Grey yet???

While I’m super excited that moms everywhere are suddenly feeling encouraged to get their freak on, I’m concerned the market has reached a mommy porn level of oversaturation.

This week, The Hollywood Reporter shared the news that we may soon be able to purchase Fifty Shades of Grey lingerie, fragrances, beauty products and more.

Caroline Mickler will be the global licensing agent for merchandise based on the franchise.

But that’s not all.

The news is everywhere. We’re seeing reports of sales of a variety of products, such as clothes line rope. In fact, rope necktie sales are on a major spike and the faint hearted among you REALLY don’t want to know why.

And with a a film on the way, chances are things are about to get yet worse.

Have you read this book? Do you also see a point in…too much…on the horizon?

And what is it we love about all these stories where a shy young virgin is seduced by a dangerous older man? It’s Jane Eyre all over again. And it fulfills our crazy fantasy about changing a man into a happily ever after scenario – even though it was his arrogance and forbidden dynamic that had attracted us to him in the first place.

But then again, this is the stuff of super hot fantasy – and who can’t use a little more play in their lives?

    I haven’t read the book yet, but I am always intrigued by things that are so very popular. Hate to feel left out, LOL. But I hate the overkill that comes along, as you have pointed out. I am 50 Shades of Over It.

    Really??!!??!!! How nauseating it’s like twilight over kill…..I haven’t read the book but I have no interest, a. Because I’m not into that kind of stuff or being “dominated” in any way by a man, & I truly don’t understand why women are feeling “empowered” after reading it, b. From friends I’ve heard this is a very poorly written book at a fifth grade level, c. I don’t have that kind of time to waste on reading a book just because everyone else is doing it….so that sums it up

    The BDSM content of this book isn’t as overwhelming as I thought, which makes it enjoyable. It’s about as racy as those excerpts from romance novel you find on Cosmo.

    I’m surprised it’s dubbed as mommy porn bc the main character is 21 yrs old.

    I had problems with this book – how on earth could a publisher allow a book with so many grammar mistakes get published? Don’t they pay people to proof read?

What do you think?
