‘Fifty Shades’ leads to unexpectedly sadomasochistic book club evening
Erotic News: A book club that normally involves light-hearted chat, wine and gossip turned into an evening of sadomasochism after reading the erotic bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey.
“Typically it’s half an hour of chat about the book, then the second bottle of wine gets opened and we spend the rest of the evening having a good old natter. But this particular evening will play in my memories forever.”
It’s said after just five minutes of discussion of the novel by E.L. James, cling film, slave collars and a human pony harness were produced – the book club then split into dominant and submissive groups.
“Things never went this far when we read The Cloud Atlas,” said fellow club member Laura Reese. “The most extreme that evening got was when someone offered to go and and buy some more Quavers from the shop.”
For some, the evening proved to be simply too erotic.
“I decided to leave at the point Carol’s husband came home early from the pub,” said McNeill. “She was trying to talk him into having a go at cock and ball torture.”
