15 Non-'50 Shades of Grey' Ways To Spend Valentine's Day

Instead of seeing '50 Shades Of Grey' this Valentine's Day, do any of these. Please.

In case you haven't heard, 50 Shades of Grey is the Valentine's Day movie to see. Or, maybe not. It's a story about a girl who meets a guy who's into kinky sex and possibly psychological abuse. So, depending on your relationship, it's not the movie to see. It might not even be that good, and definitely won't include as much taboo sex as the book does, which means it should probably only be about seven minutes long anyway.

Either way, the movie is definitely being released for Valentine's Day. The marketing is really pushing Fifty Shades Of Grey as the thing to do, but don't feel obligated. Don't let some Hollywood jerk tell you how to spend you Valentine's Day! Let this jerk tell you how to spend your Valentine's Day.

In case you think you don't have any other options, don't worry! I took care of that for you! I'm such a good guy. Check out this collection of GIFs if you want to spend your Valentine's Day not watching a creepy and (probably not sexy) movie about Christian Grey and a woman who doesn't know how to turn on a computer.

Give your partner a small but meaningful gift. Show them that you know what they really need.
