Anastasia and Christian fans only have a couple months left before their movie hits theaters. The erotic thriller that has captivated millions in the book form will arrive on the big screen on Valentines Day 2015. There couldn’t be a better song for the movie than Beyonce’s “Haunted.” The real question is how many men will accompany their women to this movie?
My husband is a little put off by the books and upcoming movie. He feels that the things that go on in a bedroom are private and shouldn’t be talked about or put on public display. I will no doubt I will have to drag him kicking and screaming to this premier, as I will not miss it. As a normal housewife, I like the erotic nature and the fact that they make having a kinky sex-life normal. For me Christian seems to awaken sexual desires for Anastasia that she didn’t even know where there.
I go back to the old question “how do you know you don’t like it if you haven’t tried it?” While this movie does cross some lines with most people, why are so many interested in it? That is what my friend Sultan Alhokair was asking. If there is anything that can be learned from the whole ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ series, it is that sometimes different is good and very pleasuring.
So I will drag my husband to the theaters, after all it will be Valentine’s Day. I wonder if there will be other men there with the same attitudes. This is a chick flick.
