Domestic Violence, 50 Shades of Grey and BDSM

With 50 Shades of Grey coming out this weekend, I feel like now is a good time to talk about domestic violence. If you’d like to read more about 50 Shades of Grey and how it relates to domestic violence, there’s a long list of links available here. It’s interesting to see how Christian Grey measures up against a red flags checklist (Spoiler: not well at all). Or hey, how about some legally defined rape?

Rather than go see the movie, please consider donating to a domestic violence awareness program such as Futures Without Violence or a local shelter. If you’re from Kansas City, we have the Rose Brooks Center, Hope House, and New House.

If you are in an abusive relationship, please reach out for help. Everyone deserves a safe relationship.

If you’re interested in exploring BDSM on film, consider watching Secretary instead. If you prefer reading your erotica, this is a good list. Consent between partners is negotiated in BDSM and a good dom[me] will help comfort and transition the sub after the scene. Perhaps you’d like to read what a few dominatrices have to say about it?
