5 Reasons Why Fifty Shades Of Grey Freaks Me Out

Lots of people went to see Fifty Shades of Grey. I know this thanks to my Facebook feed. I'll probably see it inside the comforts of a home with my friend so we can mock and laugh at it. Why? Well, the movie freaks me out a tad. How? Let me explain...




1. I don't feel the need to do kinky things in bed.


Maybe this makes me a prude. Fine. I'm a prude. But I don't want to use whips and chains. That frightens me. If Tom showed up with a whip I'd either A) laugh or B) scream.



2. The period sex scene in the book made me gag. (It's apparently not in the movie.)


When I'm on my period, I feel gross. I want to stay in sweatpants for days and stuff chocolate in my face. I may or may not brush my hair.



3. "You're here because I'm incapable of leaving you alone."--Christian


That's some scary shit right there. I don't want a man around me at all times. I need my space.



4. I don't like the way Christian stares at Anastasia.



Don't stare at me intently because I'll worry I have something on my face. I'm a messy eater.



5. Helicopters frighten me. Christian has his own, which he flies.



I do not like helicopters. I'm afraid they'll crash. I don't like flying to begin with. If you put me in a small container and ask me to have fun, it won't happen. I'll request that fun be had on solid ground, thank you.



Does Christian weird you out? Or am I the only one who doesn't appreciate rich freaky men with play rooms? It seems like it's the beginning of a 20/20 murder story to me....

  1. I hate the whole thought of her needing him and him "owning" her or whatever... I don't know the whole story, so I'm not sure about details of that, but... it's completely the opposite of how I think! I am an independent woman, and I don't NEED anyone.

  2. he's inherently abusive and a control freak. some people may have healthy bsdm relationships, but Christian Grey and Ana do not.

  3. I tried to read it. I don't think I got past the first chapter, not sure I try to give any book 3 chapters but it was just not my cup of tea.

  4. I've read the book and kept my mouth shut for as long as I could because I have nothing nice to say about it. I don't feel drawn to BDSM nor do I practice it but something tells me that's not how a BDSM relationship works. To me, the books are simply a romanticized portrayal of an abusive relationship. And the fact that so many women find Christian to be the epitome of a perfect man is what scares me the most.

  5. I attempted to read the book. I just couldn't finish it. It scares me to death too. I don't even think I will watch the movie.

  6. oh yeah, Christian is a creepy character for sure.

  7. The period scene was gross, so not my thing. I didn't mind it, but I wasn't in love with the book as others were about it. I do love a more alpha kinda guy but that was over the top.

  8. It sickens me this movie will clear $100 million or more. I should have stuck with making short films. Just garbage. And the main actor doesn't do anything for me.

  9. I read the books but have zero desire to see the movie! And, I don't think that Christian was cast very well - so many better choices to play him!!!

  10. He is kinda a creep. My husband actually asked me if I wanted to see the movie (I don't think he knows exactly what it's about). I told him I'd rather wait and watch it at home.

  11. When I read the books, I loved them! A friend of mine was reading the same time with me and we'd giggle and laugh each afternoon when we'd talk about it. Made us feel like young, sneaky girls.

    (We're both married and too busy to have the kind of life portrayed by either in the books.)

    I just chalk it up as fiction. Just like Batman or Twilight or any of those other movies that burn out pretty quick.

    1. I agree. I enjoyed them as FICTION. Everyone's all up in arms about the movie, saying it violates women and sensationalizes unhealthy relationships... but honestly, it's just fiction. It will burn out just as fast as it hits redbox.

  12. The fact that he bosses her around and makes her sign a contract and tells her what she can and can't do is just the end of the line for me. Like I posted this week I will not read or see either. I think it is a very unhealthy relationship just like Edward and Bella's was in Twilight and girls don't need that crap.

  13. I didn't read any of the books and your list of 5 creepy things are pretty creepy. Now armed with that and all I have heard about the book/movie are enough to keep me away indefinitely!

  14. I'm pretty much the only person I know who refuses to read the books or watch the movie. My hubby and I have made a mutual decision to avoid pornography in our marriage, and this kind of fits the bill for us.. I keep hearing, "It's not really pornographic though!".. but then I read lists like this and hear things like, "period sex scene" and I'm like... uhhhh... haha! Yeah, I'll pass. ;-) - www.domesticgeekgirl.com

  15. :D Thank you for that!
    I have not read the books,nor do I have a desire to, and considering your list, I think I'lll pass on the movie. I was the only one in my little neighborhood back in IL who wasn't huddled up in the circle salivating over a book and a fictional man named Christian.

  16. I haven't read the book yet so I don't know any of the scenes, but just from hearing friends talk about it, I think I'd rather wait to watch it in the comfort of my own home. I have a feeling I'll be red as a stop sign the whole time!

  17. This made me giggle! And no I won't be seeing the movie....definitely too freaky for this old school mama!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I tried to read the books but couldn't get past the 3rd page.

  19. Oh my gosh, YES!!! You are so right about ALL of this. He's a freak and a creep. My ideas of "sexy" are a little different than his, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sexy is helping me with the laundry, or offering to take a night feeding with the baby. Sexy is NOT whips and blindfolds! 😀

  21. Haha this made me laugh! I read the books and just view it as fiction so it doesn't bother me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I read the first book and got bored, so I never read the rest. Probably won't see the movie either. I think Christian Grey is just weird. From the previews for the movie, my husband thought he was a vampire, which made me laugh.

  23. This is a series I have no interest in. Creepy...!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i AM LAUGHING MY ASS OFF....Seriously....you are hilarious...and I agree with ALL of your reasons!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This post is great! I read the books and had absolutely no desire to see the movie. I'm just not comfortable with how dominant and possessive he is. I have had a few very possessive boyfriends and I seriously hated that kind of relationship more than words can describe.

  26. I think he's so frightening, but I haven't read or seen it!
    And I've been in a helicopter. I was so scared!! It was ok, though.
