Intriguing? Hilarious? HARMLESS? If you think binding, gagging and hitting a woman is a way to jumpstart your libido, then you have no place on a community newpaper.
You think trying it out might spice up your life? Then go right ahead but only blame yourself when you and your husband become addicted to porn and cannot have a meaningful relationship without you being hit and abused. Did you NOTICE that Christian was not being hit at any time? What did you make of that? That it is considered acceptable to hit a woman but not a man. PLEASE. And think about your teenaged daughter and son and their friends reading it without full understanding and think that is the modern lifestyle and all the heartache and damage that would bring. I think you owe the reading public an apology! Leave the book reviews to the professionals.
