Is This Normal? Would You Read 'Mommy Porn'?
Suburban moms are in a tizzy over an erotic book that describes BDSM, would you read it?

Moms across the nation are in a tizzy and no, it's not over the teething toy Sophie the Giraffe, although Sophie is pretty great. Instead, what's got these ladies all hot and bothered is an erotic novel about BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism). Fifty Shades of Grey is the first novel in a triology that describes the relationship between 21-year-old Anastasia Steele and the 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey, who wants Steele to be his love slave. And I do mean, slave.

What's interesting about the novels though, isn't that they are raunchy or a little violent, it's that Steele, throughout each scene is a consentual partner in this BDSM sex. She has control and when she feels uncomfortable or squeamish, she leaves. So, is it good? Chiara Atik writes on The Frisky, "As a book? Absolutely not. No way. I’m embarrassed to upload it to my GoodReads, even. But, if you’re into this kind of thing, if you’re looking at it purely based on its sexual value? I mean … yeah. These suburban moms know their stuff. But buy it on Kindle so no one can judge you for reading."

So, would you jump on the Shades of Grey bandwagon? A quick Google search (because I'm savvy like that) reveals that a lot of you have already read this book, when it was initially available for free as Twilight fan fiction--picture Christian as Edward and Anastasia as Bella...or don't that's creeping me out.

So, are you on the 'mommy porn' train? Do you think books like this are good or harmdful?
