One Girl's Love Story is Another Girl's Porn
I gotta tell you. I have laughed myself silly over all my nurse friends reading THAT BOOK. Come on, you know which one: 50 Shades of Grey.
Full disclosure, I read book one myself to see what all the fuss was about. Yawn. It's porn. "OH NO," my friends all yell! "It is NOT porn! It's erotica." That is what cracks me up. Erotica is just what well educated people call porn.
Anyway, I have engaged in good natured debates about the book with several friends and I can't find many who will agree with me, I admit.
Of course, all those friends have read the full trilogy and I admittedly have not. "It's a wonderful love story..." Romeo and Juliet is a love story. Sleepless in Seattle is a love story. Fifty is porn.
OK, OK...not even the real point of this blog.
What I think is, all these nurses don't want to admit they're reading porn because that's just wrong, right? Wrong!! If you are an adult, and you want to read porn, then read it. No need to be ashamed. Porn's purpose, by loose definition, is to sexually stimulate. Fifty certainly does that, agreed? And there is nothing wrong with an adult being sexually stimulated as long as the outlet is healthy. Oh hell, let's not even GO there...
