The Love of Lust and All Things Kinky

Keep Calm...

Well, well, well! Just a few more days until Valentine’s Day and that movie that everyone is talking about…what the hell is it called again? Ha, I know I got some jokes. Why I’m only referring to THE most talked about movie/book of the past 2 years! ’50 Shades of Grey’.

When this book came onto the scene they were making it out to be the dirtiest book ever written. A guilty pleasure for all the housewives who were fainting at home from the dirty kinkiness of it all. Then it became mainstream as all the women on this earth started reading it too. It caught on like a wild fire. The day that I knew it had reached another level of epic proportions was when a man was openly reading it on the train opposite me. And that’s when I finally gave in and started reading the first book out of the trilogy.

Can I just say, and this is my personal opinion so don’t jump down my throat, but I did not find it so kinky or lustful. Don’t kill me! I know millions of others out there think otherwise. And that’s good for them. But this trilogy of softly written S&M lustfulness was PG rated in my books. Now, before you say anything, I am no expert in the S&M subject but I do know what would be pushing the limit and what wouldn’t. Men telling some young inexperienced girls what to do is nothing new people. In fact that scenario has been around since before the invention of time. So people need to calm the fuck down with all this shit. Give me something that’s so R-rated my brain will explode.

A few years before all this 50 shades of bullshit started, I by accident, got my hands on a trilogy that was written by Anne Rice. The author of “Interview With The Vampire”. I thought that this trilogy was going to be something along the lines of her more mainstream books. Boy was I completely wrong.

If you like bondage and S&M at its most carnal then might I suggest Anne Rice’s ‘Sleeping Beauty Trilogy’.

Sleeping Beauty Trilogy

Holy mother of balls I have never read anything so disgusting, intriguing, sadistic, seedy, dirty, sinful, sickening, all in one go. How could one book do all of this to you? My emotions ranged from anger to interested, back to taking a long fucking time to read the next sentence. At times it was a struggle to carry on. AND to top it off, the first of the trilogy was written back in 1983. Could you even imagine how provocative that would have been? I mean this is primal sex at its lowest form. Animalistic rage, fuelled by raw lust. There are no real emotions of the fake sappy love we are used to in movies. It’s about domination, humiliation, savagery and torture.

The opening scene of the first novel starts with ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in a deep slumber in a locked castle tower. Whereupon a Prince climbs up towards her to claim his prize. I will not even get into what he does to her. I just can’t fathom the thought of rewriting it. But suffice it to say it was a complete shock to the system as I desperately struggled to keep reading it. And yet somehow, I finished the whole damn book. I did start the second one but I never finished it. Umm… sorry Anne Rice. Who knows maybe I will finish the trilogy this year as one of my bucket list check off’s type of thing. But it was a hard read for me at time.

So if you really want to read erotic, lustful, savagery then this is the trilogy you need to be reading. But be warned, it is by no means for the faint of heart. You need to not give a shit when reading it. Throw caution to the wind and realise that it is a piece of fictional writing. Anne Rice created a seedy torturous fantasy where the weak are picked off and dominated upon. Just go into it with an open mind. After reading it, I guarantee you will be saying… 50 shades of what?
