Women across North America are being hypnotized by E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. As most know by now, the book is highly erotic, and blush-worthy to say the least. The love story following literature student Anastasia Steele and young entrepreneur Christian Grey through the trials and tribulations of a daring, passionately physical affair has resonated in the hearts (and libidos) of the women who read the trilogy.
The literary phenomenon has been featured on talk shows nationwide, gone viral on the internet, and spawned hundreds of “Greysessed” fans, both young and old alike. Women are finding themselves getting their “mommy porn” fix on the side of the highway, outside daycares, or anywhere that is light enough to read the pages. Although author E.L. James initially intended for the book to be Twilight fan fiction, the series has taken on a life of its own. James recently sold the movie rights to Universal Studios for a hefty seven figure sum.
The recent movie rights have created a frenzy over who will play the leads in the sure to be steamy movie. Eventful.com has launched a campaign where readers can choose who should play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film. Fans can go to http://eventful.com/
