50 Shades/Grey Matter

A few comments 






Oh, dear. Yeah, kinda see why this was so panned. Ugh.

How to get the most out of a sex scene:


Yeah, the ice. We sure as hell haven't seen this before, have we?









Kind of speaks for itself. Again, the situation. Working in a hardware store. Be a sub for your journalist gal pal and meet a rich corporate juggernaut looking for the right girl to function as a "sex pet". How long before his particular "style" turns her off instead of on? That bit of business seems to be what women I know were compelled by.

Several female friends I work with (now in different locations but I digress...) were vocally excited about the release of 50 Shades of Grey (2015), and I had no idea why. Bondage, pleasure in pain, a timid beauty meeting a wealthy and handsome corporate powerhouse by chance through a fated interview which aligns them sexually, the plot didn't exactly seem very far removed from softcore porn I've watched in the past. Funnily enough, hardcore have taken this film and went all the way. Cinematically, 50 Shades is a very attractive film. I will include an image of Dakota in red which certainly alerted me to the fact that plenty of money was thrown at this movie to make it quite alluring to an audience seemingly enthusiastic about a worldwide release with this kind of provocative subject matter.

Admittedly, one of my personal favorite films of this type is Adrian Lyne's 9½ Weeks (1986). Again, an attractive woman (this time, Basinger, who was absolutely stunning) becomes drawn into a sexual web spun by a stud (Mickey Rourke). Both films are nice to look at and feature young adults in their very prime of their lives. Their "coupling arrangements" are slightly different but similar enough, I guess.

I did read some of 50 Shades prior to watching this, but I soon learned fairly early this just didn't suit my particular pallet. That's not to say evocative photographic adoration of Dakota's entire body, from her lips to her ass which has titillating shots through the use of a riding crop, didn't suit my fancy. I didn't mind that at all. And the ladies get plenty of Jamie Dornan, so the film tries to appease all tastes.

The dialogue didn't make me blush as it might certain folks, but I had the giggles, for sure.

"I'd like to bite that lip." - Grey
"I think I'd like that, too." - Ana

This film made like 570 million bucks. So there were obviously some folks curious. Still, I have watched Cinemax movies with similar dialogue, so I'm not sure what would make it so alluring to the mainstream. Well, erotica has always been, and always will be, a draw, regardless if it is night owls looking to have their appetite for sexual fare satisfied.

I would love to have pursued a conversation with some of the girls at my job about the material, just out of my own curiosity in what they personally found appealing and of interest.

I guess there is a desire in many of us to be a part of something that requires two looking to stimulate a side of themselves sexually, embracing that wild side wanting out of the cage.

"I'm not going to touch you. Not until I have your written consent." - Grey

Contracts that dictate terms. Sign on the line meant for your signature and prepare to be an active participant in a sub/dom partnership. Plenty of rewards in store.


"Fuck the paperwork." - Grey as he launches an onslaught of kissy-kissy in the elevator, interrupted by business associates in the building, ruining a possible "love in the elevator" scenario.

Yikes.

It's sad, when a mother has to speak the words that condemn her own son. But I couldn't allow them to believe that I would commit murder. They'll put him away now, as I should have years ago. He was always bad, and in the end he intended to tell them I killed those girls and that man... as if I could do anything but just sit and stare, like one of his stuffed birds. They know I can't move a finger, and I won't. I'll just sit here and be quiet, just in case they do... suspect me. They're probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly..."

I think there is something about the American dream, the sort of Disneyesque dream, if you will, of the beautifully trimmed front lawn, the white picket fence, mom and dad and their happy children, God-fearing and doing good whenever they can, and the flip side of it, the kind of anger and the sense of outrage that comes from discovering that that's not the truth of the matter, that gives American horror films, in some ways, kind of an additional rage.

Mad Love 1935

Doctor Gogol: Did you ever hear of Galatea?

Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: Gala - who? Not wanting a statue of him, are you?

Doctor Gogol: I don't want a statue of Galatea. You see, she was a statue herself. Pygmalion formed her. Out of marble, not wax. And then she came to life in his arms.

Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [calling to his assistant] Start the motor, Henry. There's queer people on the streets of Montmartre at this time of night.

Doctor Gogol: [handing him his card] Here, a hundred francs if you deliver the statue to my house.

Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [reading card] It's a go, Dr. Go... gol. First thing in the morning.
