The cute old ladies who reviewed Kim Kardashian‘s sex tape are back, and now they’ve got a bone to pick with erotic literary sensation 50 Shades Of Grey.
When last we saw them, the dream team known as “the Golden Sisters” were hilariously criticizing Kim’s blowjob technique and general idiocy. Now, they’ve taken a look a 50 Shades of Grey, and as you can see from the video above, they’re not impressed.
While it’s funny to watch them cringe as they puzzle over certain naughty passages from the book, this one isn’t as funny to me, because it displays a large dose of ignorance about the BDSM community, i.e. the last group of people (besides maybe fat people) it’s socially acceptable to dump on. It’s okay, maybe even expected, for old people to be ignorant about such things, but just in case the Golden Sisters are reading this, I’m going to try to clear a few things up for them.
“Never do anything that hurts.”
Actually, some people think it’s fun to do stuff that hurts, and there’s nothing wrong with that! (Psychologists agree; they’re even taking BDSM people out of the next edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.) Why do people enjoy doing stuff that hurts? Well, those reasons can range from a desire to work through past traumas in a loving, trusting environment to the simple fact that different people process sensations differently. What might feel unpleasant to one person feels incredibly amazing to another.
“The contracts bother me, did you read the stupid contracts?”
Actually, making a list of things you do and don’t want to try are a good way to stay on the same page with your partner, whether you’re kinky or vanilla. More communication can only be a good thing where sex is concerned. Lists, or “contracts,” save you from having to have that boring conversation in the heat of the moment, as well as from the awkward misunderstandings that can occur when you decide to “just try something” on your partner.
“What the hell is a butt plug?”
It’s a small, round, object with a flared base designed for insertion into one’s anus. Some people find the sensation pleasurable.
