Recently, I watched the movie “50 Shades of Grey” and I was disappointed in the film.
Not surprising since I couldn’t even finish the first book, I was so ANNOYED BY THE ENTIRE STORYLINE!
And the main character Anastasia DROVE ME LITERALLY CRAZY!
Now I’m not deep into the BDSM scene.
I don’t go to parties.
I’m not on FetLife.
What I do know, I know from friends who dabble rather heavily in the lifestyle. Some live it 24-7.
It works for them.
So when I admitted to my friend Dante that I had watched the film, he rolled his eyes and me and groaned.
We both agreed that the movie “Secretary” was a much better representation of a dominant/submissive relationship.
Which reminded me that in February of 2014 I wrote a blog post about the Top 10 Sexy Movies in my book, and “Secretary” was included.
My list is basically made up of mainstream movies that I think capture a little of the eroticism most films lack.
- Body Heat
- The Postman Always Rings Twice
- Enemy at the Gates
- The Horseman on the Roof
- A History of Violence
- The Big Easy
- Sex and Lucia
- Red Shoe Diaries
I should add to that list “Lie With Me” starring Eric Balfour and Lauren Lee Smith about a woman with rampant sexuality confronted with a blossoming relationship.
My friend Mark read this post years ago and added his own sexy movies – “The Salton Sea” and “Zandalee” both of which I have now seen and agree with Mark’s recommendation.
I would definitely NOT recommend “50 Shades of Grey” unless you like your BDSM with feather tickling and a ridiculous amount of overly romanticized relationship (because OF COURSE no self-respecting woman would subject herself to these activities without some sort of love relationship developing between her and a bilionaire).
Not at all.
