Did you think movie was better than books? I tried to read, but didnt like the style, gave up on book one after few chapters.

The book and movie relate closer to domestic abuse rather than BDSM. There are several cases where Anastasia says the "Safe word" and Christian Grey IGNORES it. That's considered rape. What's the point of having a safe word if one party won't respect it?
It's a disgusting misrepresentation of the BDSM culture, and I'm thoroughly disgusted by the entire franchise. (Yes, I did read the book after I borrowed it from a friend - this isn't an uneducated opinion). Instead of paying a crazy amount of money to support a disgusting franchise, consider donating money to an anti-domestic abuse foundation instead.

Thank you for a great and honest comment.
I never got into all this 50shades of grey obsession. Was curios why everyone is so crazy about it.

I agree with you Skye_Ann! I wrote a similar response on another post about this same topic in which I wrote that I'm opposed to seeing the movie. It does draw a fine line between aggression against women and kinky sexual practice. The media will always try to get people to jump on their bandwagon just so they can rake in the big bucks, but sometimes we're blinded and conditioned to believe things that are wrong. Society nowadays is like a flock of sheep being led by wolves. We need to wake up and question if what we are being shown by the media is really where our values lie.
The fact that you mentioned that she did not give consensus and he went about pleasuring himself anyway makes me wonder if some people who see this movie will be think that this how things are done in the "modern" age of sexual relationships. Ignore their partner's safe word because it's what the cool, gorgeous Christian Grey did and oh well, they all lived happily ever after! I wouldn't be surprised if we end up hearing more and more about rape allegations related to BDSM in the near future.
It surprises me how people are so ready to accuse Bill Cosby and Jian Gomeshi but are so blinded when it comes to this movie. Why? Because the media has declared this to be the most popular trend to follow right now.
