No, I have never read the series and really have no interest in it.

Ha it's funny, ok short back story, my dh and I cuddle up in bed sometimes and he reads to me. Now I can read but it's just a sexy little thing we do. I get to cuddle and listen to his sexy accent. So anyway we were out shopping one day and he asked if I wanted him to read me this book *giggles, so of course I bought a copy then and there we just haven't started it yet.. But we will =D ...

I am one of the few who hasn't. Spanking doesn't appeal to me. Stephanie Plum novels are fantasy enough for me, right now! LOL

That's it for me, I need to escape.

Quoting SlightlyPerfect:

Yeah, but I think the issue is that people who are reading this need two things: (1) to be doing it more, and (2) to escape. There's a reason people are reading this. There is a reason why it's taken off as it has. And I think it speaks volumes of the collective psyche of modern Western women.

Quoting VintageWife:

I don't need to read junk like that. I think people need to spend less time reading it and more time actually doing it. (Seems kinda common sense to me.)

So, if I ever DID decide to read it, she just spoiled the ending for me. Ack! I can't believe she did that. Did she just assume we had ALL read it already?

I haven't read it. I don't plan to!

Hahaha!! Andrew's last line cracked me up. You know they were all twisting it in their heads and making it dirty.

I have not read the books but do have a pretty good sex life.

Love the video above.  I've been a fan of Andrew since Melrose Place in the early 90's!

I read about 100 pages of the first Fifty Shades book and couldn't get into it.
