Yes, there are elements in Fifty Shades of Grey that warrant discussion. However, we have to remember that these people are figments of E.L. James' imagination. She's no expert on the BDSM lifestyle and her scenes lack a certain accuracy. This is not what a healthy relationship looks like. You cannot fix a violent person with your love, nor is it romantic to be scared.
I'm not interested in discussing Mr. Ghomeshi's sexual preferences. What does concern me is whether all this negative press will scare women and couples back into their sexual shell. Are they now hesitating to go see the much anticipated Fifty Shades movie, feeling guilty instead of empowered if they choose to indulge their sexual senses in this pleasure?
