Blind Item #9

The husband of this #1 bestselling author says that as much as she talks about sex and writes about sex, that you would think they would be having lots of sex. Nope. Once every few months he said, if he is lucky.

50 shades of gray author e l james

makes you wonder where she learned all about s&m

MISCH said...

"Sometimes the fantasy is sooo much better." That is a quote from my most fantastic gay friend....

Cathy said...

I'm sorry, did someone out there actually think she and her husband have some wild sex life that is anything remotely similar to what she writes about?

califblondy said...

Cathy she said in an interview that she and the hub tried out a few things.

Renoblondee said...

Yeah, that's who I thought.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

Kate, from the howls of outrage and protest that came from the BDSM community when the 50 Shades craze first hit, there is absolutely no reason to believe that E.L. James knows anything at all about S&M. BDSM folk find the book appallingly offensive in its complete misrepresentation.

How can she find time to have sex shes busy writing books? :(

B.J. said...

What about Mischa Collins' wife, she wrote a book about threesomes i think.

Kate said...

I see. I didn't realize that. I too thought I had read somewhere that she tried stuff out with her husband

Molls said...

EL James. She's too busy writing about something of which she has no knowledge. I haven't read the books, but have heard lots of complaints.

Is Kim Cattrall remarried? She wrote sexual satisfaction books and poof, the following year she was separated/divorced.

I haven't read Fifty Shades nor will I, but it is my understanding the first book ends with the chick telling the guy to go full-on BDSM with her and so he... spanks her. Hard!
She ends up in a mental hospital as a result. I laughed for a good hour when I heard that one.

So yeah, E.L. James knows jack about BDSM.

Jackie is close to 70 years old. I doubt anyone assumes she's getting it on every day. I love that woman, she's awesome!

Considering Fifty Shades started out as bad Twilight fanfic, I'm not surprised it's also bad BDSM. (Since i've heard it's so poorly written, I haven't actually wasted the time reading it.)

I'll have to co-sign on that guess. Clearly she's didn't 'write what she knows'. Ha ha.

You guys have no idea what you're missing, writing 50 Shades off so quickly. It's a masterpiece.

“Does this mean you’re going to make love to me tonight, Christian?”

Holy shit. Did I just say that? His mouth drops open slightly, but he recovers quickly.

“No, Anastasia it doesn’t. Firstly, I don’t make love. I fuck… hard. Secondly, there’s a lot more paperwork to do, and thirdly, you don’t yet know what you’re in for. You could still run for the hills. Come, I want to show you my playroom.”

My mouth drops open. Fuck hard! Holy shit, that sounds so… hot. But why are we looking at a playroom? I am mystified. “You want to play on your Xbox?” I ask.

He laughs, loudly.“No, Anastasia, no Xbox, no Playstation. Come."

Producing a key from his pocket, he unlocks yet another door and takes a deep breath. “You can leave anytime. The helicopter is on stand-by to take you whenever you want to go, you can stay the night and go home in the morning. It’s fine whatever you decide.”

“Just open the damn door, Christian.”

He opens the door and stands back to let me in. I gaze at him once more. I so want to know what’s in here. Taking a deep breath I walk in. And it feels I’ve time-traveled back to the sixteenth century and the Spanish Inquisition. Holy fuck.

Oh wow. That is pretty freaking hysterical!

I picked up one of the books at B & N, flipped to a random page, read one paragraph, rolled my eyes, put it back and have never even been tempted to pick up one again!

Stephanie Meyer. I actually don't know how much sex is in the books but I am thinking anyone who came up with Twilight is probably not that into her human, adult husband.

auntliddy said...

Nice of him to share. Liser.

Sherry said...

Oh god lord that is awful! So glad I didn't bother like I would anyway. I'll write my own and much better by the way.

Count..We need a script doctor on that passage..Make it readable Pleasee????

Candace Bushnall (have no idea if that's how you spell it & too lazy to google)

Claritysk said...

As someone in the kinkster lifestyle 50 shades was more or less a joke- dang vanilla too

Jenn said...

Writing about sex is less messy than doing it. It ain't easier though. There's promo, editing, re-writes, and blogging. Also finding time, somehow, to write on the next book, because the publisher will ask and ask.

This is probably supposed to be about E. L. James and her glorified pseudo-S&M Twilight fanfic. My mother read it, I'm mortified that she doesn't have better taste.

Like who did he actually say this to? This blind is bullsheit, like most of them. Source?

Ellen said...

I don't know, but I read the first 50 shades book and it was one of the most poorly written books I've read in recent years. It just felt like it was written by an inexperienced teenager imaging what being "naughty" is.

Ja'mie King said...

Because of the popularity of 50 shades and twilight, I have been roped into editing for an indy publishing company, hoping to score a piece of the $pie$. I can't even express how bad these "books" are. Reading that passage of 50 shades is like reading Tolstoy (ok, no it's not) compared to this stuff. I had to stop myself from completely re-writing entire books, one passage at a time, because they were so awful. When I'm rolling my eyes and yelling COME ON to an empty room, it's bad. Oh man, so bad. All the authors are middle aged housewives and mothers writing as if they're their own 20 year old daughters.

So bad, ya'll.

Gotta be James or Rowling.

It's called IMAGINATION

di butler said...

If it's that James woman, maybe she's taking book writing classes, because, holy shit! was that 50 Shades book awful. Penthouse Forum had better authors and more believable sex tales. I thought it was written by Jr High girls, at first, I couldn't make it past a few chapters, my eyes rolled so hard. Are women nowadays that sex starved they'll read anything?
