50 shades of grey

Most of us think about sex at least once a day, it's a perfectly natural phenomenon that's an integral aspect of our lives.

Of course, it's important to acknowledge that asexuality exists too, and people with low sex drives for whatever reason, medical or not. So if you're not having erotic fantasies, don't fret.

One question is on our minds at this moment in time: How can we know what generation were the biggest fantasy-addicts of them all, though? That's easy: Science.

A new study has confirmed that modern women spend THREE TIMES as long dreaming about sex than the women of the 1970s.

The sexual revolution of the late 20th century and falling levels of shame around the taboo of sexuality are thought to be behind the latest spicy trend.

Researchers from the University of Freiburg in Germany asked 2,907 participants aged between 16 and 92-years-old about their sexy-time dreams, and the results are fascinating.

Women under 30 years of age claimed that one-fifth of their dreams were erotic, while for men in the same age group it was one-quarter.

A previous survey from 50 years ago discovered that women thought about sex during sleep only one-third as much as modern ladies.

The gap between genders has closed over time, which the journal Psychology & Sexuality puts down to the rise of feminism and an awareness of intersexuality, queer culture and communication.

The report stated: "One might speculate that younger women in modern society deal with sexuality more openly that older women of previous generations."

An erotic dream is defined as having "sexually motivated" activity, such as flirting and kissing. The scientists from the University of Freiburg in Germany also found that 83.8 percent of two sexes had experienced a wet dream.

Studies which took place back in 1966 and 1998 found less than four percent of women and 12 percent of men confessed to having sex dreams. Maybe they were just being coy?

The research didn't go into the type of sex dreams women were experiencing in the past and present, which would be interesting to dig into.

Dream away gals, it's a healthy part of your lifestyle and is proven to influence the development of your sexual preferences.

You're essentially carrying out important scientific experimentation in your own brain, right?

We reckon that actress Dakota Johnson has a point when she declared that Jamie Dornan should get more naked in the upcoming sequel to 50 Shades of Grey. 

On American TV with her How to be Single co-stars Leslie Mann and Alison Brie, the actress was asked whether she thought it was fair that audiences saw way more of her body than of Jamie's in the first 50 Shades of Grey film. 

"I'll probably get in trouble for this answer," replied the 26-year-old. 

"I mean, yeah. I'm gonna make him get fully naked in the next one.

"Everyone wants to see the d."

Watch the gas clip play out below:



Radio presenter, rugby pundit and now, erotic novelist. All in a day’s work for a certain George Hook. Yes, you did read that correctly. Move over E.L James, there’s a new best-selling erotica aficionado in town… almost.

George Hook, 72-year old host of The Right Hook has revealed that he has a large portion of his upcoming erotic novel written, but that it won't be as raunchy as some might expect. 

When asked if it was comparable with the record breaking Fifty Shades trilogy, he said his work will be "more Tolstoy than EL James" adding, "First of all it’s well written – it has full stops, commas, and paragraphs."

The news of George’s fascination with the world of erotic literature came about after a discussion regarding fan fiction on his radio show last week. A fan of The Good Wife, George joked he would love to collaborate with his guest on an erotic fan fiction inspired by the show.

“The Further Adventures of Kalinda. I can describe her, the thigh high boots, the six inch heels, the fact that she is of a rather voracious sexual nature.”

Sounds charming.  His latest foray into the writing world contains a slightly more original tale of a young Polish girl “despoiled” by German soldiers during World War II. But could you imagine the audiobook?

This is not the first time George has tried to charm his way into the world of erotic fiction. In 2007 he had written ten chapters of a chick-lit book. Unfortunately for us all, it was rejected by publishers.

The book followed a blonde heroine who had “screwed her way across Ireland,” and somehow found herself brain damaged and sent to the Middle East.

“She’s gorgeous, she’s clever, tough as nails, with a wonderful chest. She’s the kind of woman I’ve always wanted to fall in love with.”

Sounds like George may have been planning for a film adaptation starring his celebrity crush Pamela Anderson. George has been crushing on the former Baywatch babe for quite some time now.

There’s no official dates coming in as of yet regarding the publication of George’s great masterpiece, so we have some time to ready ourselves. 



Thirsty Thursday became a trend not so long ago, and now it’s been surpassed by Grey Thursday.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger, 50 Shades Of Grey has come back, again. A retelling of the trilogy from Christian Grey’s perspective is exactly what we wanted heading into the weekend.

The publishing phenomenon has sold 125million copies worldwide already, and has also become a film series. Anastasia and Christian’s relationship is now being told “in Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections and dreams”.

Yes E.L James has somehow managed to transform a Twilight fanfiction inspired smut trilogy into a lucrative industry.

Today not only marks the release of the hotly-anticipated new novel, but the date was also chosen by the author herself as it marks Christian’s birthday. Nice.

The fictional seducer and bondage aficionado has, naturally, caused quite the stir online today. Once people managed to get through the rather wordy preamble, they’ve got an awful lot Grey waiting for them.

Twitter users couldn’t help themselves:

Just in case you weren’t one of the die-hard fans who had the novel sent to their E-readers at midnight (how could you not?), we’ve gathered up some Christian’s best parts, no pun intended, honestly.

First of all, it’s important to note that while poor Anastasia’s point of view was given the dull numerical chapter titles, Mr Grey gets a bit more specific with his dates. So, to surmise Christian is not only a billionaire sex god, he’s also really good at keeping a diary, of course.


"'Mr Grey.' His handshake is limp, like his hair. Asshole. 'Wait up – not the Christian Grey? Of Grey Enterprises Holdings?' Yeah, that's me, you prick.


 “Her words travel directly to my d***, passing ‘Go’ on the way. F***.”


"Absentmindedly, she wipes a crumb from the corner of her lips and into her mouth and sucks on her finger. My c*** twitches in response. What am I, fourteen?"


 “This calls for – what did she call them? SHOUTY CAPITALS.”


"She has a fresh, wholesome fragrance that reminds me of my grandfather’s apple orchard."


"I remember her telling me to keep still and tugging my pubic hair while she was sitting astride me, naked. The thought is arousing."


"Keeping my eyes on hers, I pop an olive into my mouth and lick my index finger. Her eyes grow wider and darker."


"Her hair is beautiful. Lush. Long. Thick. Idly, I wonder what it would be like to braid."


"I cannot believe she's said that out loud! Ironically, the question even my own family will not ask. How dare she!

"I have a sudden urge to drag her out of her seat, bend her over my knee, spank her, and then f*** her over my desk with her hands tied behind her back. That would answer her ridiculous question."


"'This is my favorite tea,' she says, and I revise my mental note that it's Twinings English Breakfast tea she likes. I watch her dunk the teabag in the teapot. It's an elaborate and messy spectacle.

"She fishes it out almost immediately and places the used teabag on her saucer.

"My mouth is twitching with my amusement. As she tells me she likes her tea weak and black, for a moment I think she's describing what she likes in a man. Get a grip, Grey. She's talking about tea."

There were reports today that Jamie Dornan had posted this photo of himself from a 50 Shades of Grey scene:



And while we FULLY appreciate the photo, it has been confirmed that it’s not actually from the set of his new film.

It is in fact an old photo from a photo shoot he did with Rosie Huntington Whiteley for GQ magazine, and it didn’t come from his Instagram account because he doesn’t have one.

Still, it’s a very, VERY nice picture.



We’re loving Dakota Johnson’s latest spread for US Elle!

First of all, the styling for the shoot had a gorgeous ‘sexy sixties’ feel to it that we can’t get enough of; secondly, it gives us an idea of how Dakota will work as Anastasia for the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie.

Speaking about the movie’s highly anticipated sex scenes, Dakota says: “I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.”

When asked about her interest in the books, she replied: “Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
