And went to the book shop in town. The seller was TOTALLY gaga over this series, so I picked it up and started to read.

EL James is a weirdo.

But I think I'm going to finish these things anyhow. Maybe get some insight into grown-ups lives.

Little person how much candy would I have to give you to get you to stop reading that?

A lot, and I mean a LOT.

INSIGHT, dude. That bookseller lady was NUTS about this, she got all flushed and hyperventilated and everything. Told me not to watch the movie though.

I'll take it.

And the Frost-lady down there freaked me out enough, I may burn these things.

I'll help you burn them. Come on, let's go get candy.

....Wow that sounded creepy. Let's go get not-creepy-candy

You'll probably just eat my share anyways.

Kudos for wanting to gain insight through what you read.

Just please don't take what James writes as your only indication for how all grown-ups live. The series is notorious for misrepresenting those who participate in S&M culture in a healthy way and has been claimed by many to portray domestic violence rather than "proper" S&M. Take what she writes with a grain of salt and make sure you pursue other examples of the genre as well, not just James'.

Boss lady...those books should be for 18+.  Not high school level

Why? It's just a book. No one is being exploited by its sale the way some people might be if she were watching internet porn. People of all ages should be informed about sex in a safe environment. Even very poorly written, very badly researched sex. I'd far rather see students reading books about sex- especially S&M- than going out and putting themselves in those same situations without any experience, with people they don't know, where they could be taken advantage of.

Sorry bae. When you're as old as I am and have lived the past I've lived, you develop odd, probably unpopular opinions on things like this.

You called me bae, you can't be over the age of 20.

I like to pretend sometimes by using language my ward teaches me. But I'm feeling my age more than usual lately.

I have not read the series so unfortunately I cannot discuss your thoughts on it with any reliability, but hopefully someone here has and you can have a productive discussion about your father's similarities with them.

Oh good lord everything Adri said and then some. Do not take those books as any sort of idea of what healthy relationships and sexuality are like.

I will double the younger Summers' 'body weight in candy' if you burn them. Hope you like Reese's cups.

Those books are not insight into anything.

Not that I've read them, or anything, but no.

I'm inclined to believe that they're very insightful into what NOT to do and how to NOT treat women. But I haven't read them either.

The movie wasn't bad.

(Assuming it was supposed to be a comedy.)

You watched comedic mom-porn without me?! I'm crushed. We should do another spa day soon and make the spa place put it on y/y?

It was Valentine's Day weekend! You were a little busy, I assume.

(And yes. God.)
