Knoxville sadomasochists reading "Fifty Shades of Grey" in droves
The bestselling erotic romance novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" and its two sequels have proven wildly popular among Knoxville sadomasochists, many of whom enjoy reading the books for the pain it causes them. The trilogy records the unconventional relationship between main characters Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. It contains actual sentences like, "My inner goddess is beside herself, hopping from foot to foot" and "My subconscious has reared her somnambulant head." "Some people are calling it a literary phenomenon," said Sue Gadfort. "With straight faces. I don't know about all that. I love the writing precisely because it's so agonizing. Every new adverb hurts me so good." Local pain enthusiast Dorothy Wheeler agreed. "It's like they took good writing, doused it with gasoline, lit in on fire, put the ashes in a blender, fed that to Stephenie Meyer, and then took whatever she threw up to use as the text of 'Fifty Shades of Grey,'" she said. "I can't get enough of it."
