There, Christian informs her that the second contract will be one of dominance and submission , and there will be no romantic relationship, only a sexual one. The contract even forbids Ana from touching Christian or making eye contact with him.
At this point, Christian realises that Ana is a virgin and takes her virginity without making her sign the contract. The following morning, Ana and Christian again have sex.
His mother arrives moments after their sexual encounter and is surprised by the meeting, having previously thought Christian was homosexual , because he was never seen with a woman.
Christian and Ana plan to meet again, and he takes Ana home, where she discovers several job offers and admits to Kate that she and Christian had sex.
Over the next few days, Ana receives several packages from Christian. She and Christian email each other, with Ana teasing him and refusing to honour parts of the contract, such as only eating foods from a specific list. Ana later meets with Christian to discuss the contract and becomes overwhelmed by the potential BDSM arrangement and the potential of having a sexual relationship with Christian that is not romantic in nature.
Because of these feelings, Ana runs away from Christian and does not see him again until her college graduation, where he is a guest speaker.
Ana and Christian once again meet to further discuss the contract, and they go over Ana's hard and soft limits. Christian spanks Ana for the first time, and the experience leaves her both enticed and slightly confused.
This confusion is exacerbated by Christian's lavish gifts and the fact that he brings her to meet his family. The two continue with the arrangement without Ana's having yet signed the contract. After successfully landing a job with Seattle Independent Publishing SIP , Ana further bristles under the restrictions of the non-disclosure agreement and her complex relationship with Christian.

The tension between Ana and Christian eventually comes to a head after Ana asks Christian to punish her in order to show her how extreme a BDSM relationship with him could be. Christian fulfils Ana's request, beating her with a belt, and Ana realises they are incompatible.
Devastated, she breaks up with Christian and returns to the apartment she shares with Kate. Background and publication[ edit ] James in The Fifty Shades trilogy was developed from a Twilight fan fiction series originally titled Master of the Universe and published episodically on fan-fiction websites under the pen name "Snowqueen's Icedragon". After comments concerning the sexual nature of the material, James removed the story from the fan-fiction websites and published it on her own website, FiftyShades.
Later she rewrote Master of the Universe as an original piece, with the principal characters renamed Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and removed it from her website before publication. Good on her—she's doing well. That's great! The first, titled Fifty Shades of Grey, was released as an e-book and a print on demand paperback in May by The Writers' Coffee Shop, a virtual publisher based in Australia.
The Writers' Coffee Shop had a restricted marketing budget and relied largely on book blogs for early publicity, but sales of the novel were boosted by word-of-mouth recommendation.

The book's erotic nature and perceived demographic of its fan base as being composed largely of married women over thirty led to the book being dubbed "Mommy Porn" by some news agencies. Many other erotic works quickly became best-sellers following Fifty Shades' success, while other popular works, such as Anne Rice 's The Sleeping Beauty trilogy, have been reissued this time without pseudonyms to meet the higher demand.
James its best-selling author, replacing J. Rowling , though worldwide the Harry Potter series sold more than million copies compared with Fifty Shades of Grey's sales of 60 million copies.
Salman Rushdie said about the book: "I've never read anything so badly written that got published.

It has to at least have a perspective of eternity. James is still enjoying a very advanced spot on Amazon. The latter, however, is not sufficient to explain why the controversial book, unlike many erotic novels before, proved to be such a huge hit. Hundreds of articles have been written about the book speculating on the secret of its success, but few rigorous academic efforts have been undertaken to extricate the trilogy from the annals of journalism to the more discerning efforts of academia.
The resultant pastiche borders on the highly improbable, but fan readers are willing to suspend disbelief in return for the transgressive fantasy afforded by these books. The trilogy is at once old and new. The unfamiliar, sordid world of dungeons and bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism BDSM was brought to bear upon the life of a character most young women could relate to the lonely, undecided, career woman of chick-lit who had graduated from romance novels.
The money and power elements only added to the edgy fantasy. Within the culture industry of today, it would be reductionist to claim that these books interpellate readers—especially female ones—to occupy certain subject positions without allowing for their agency to influence such interpellations.
Even more important is the attempt to reduce the trilogy to a simple linearity of cause and effect.

Similar to many other phenomena, they are very complex constructs that should be seen as a point of convergence between a litany of cultural, social, sexual, economic, and political discursive practices that reveal more about the social subjects that read them than they do about the books themselves.
It is the combination of these elements that created a winning formula and, I suspect, had any of the elements that follow been lacking, the books would not have enjoyed such a great success. Beginning with psychoanalysis, it is crucial that these novels be approached as a form of transgressive fantasy rather than a wish-list for the modern-day woman.
Fantasy functions as a space in which we are afforded the opportunity to act out all of those transgressive desires and dreams we have had to renounce to engage in a social contract with others. Contrary to the perceived notion that in a fantasy we are imagining an ego- ideal or a vision of the self as one wishes the others to see us: For example, fantasising about being famous and powerful is at its heart a desire to arouse envy and jealousy and wield power over others rather than a narrative about a more well-known, beautiful, wonderful and coherent self.
A more accurate rendering of this relationship would be to see the books as representative of a fantasy that can be enjoyed from a safe distance similar to the experience of enjoying the violence and sexual transgression of a film from a masochistic subject position, submitting to another book, character, or film while ensuring it does not hurt us. On one level the books act as a fantasy that interpellates a willing participant in a Deleuzian masochistic aesthetic.
Ana may have surrendered all her power to Christian in the trilogy but this is not very different from the dynamics of a masochistic relationship. It is important to note here that, according to Gilles Deleuze , sadomasochism is a linguistic anomaly that misrepresents the reality of the relationship between torturer and tortured.
The first book of the trilogy was originally conceived by James as fan fiction of the vampire Twilight series Bennett-Smith Residing outside the canonical world of fiction, the books were more of an exercise in a self-reflexive take on the niches and gaps James felt were left unfilled by the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer The attempt to fill that void thus should not be seen within the constraints of traditional works of fiction but rather as an aesthetic commentary that combines, in the forms of a pastiche, elements of sexual, material, and emotional excesses similar to any fantasy.

The trilogy is to fiction what surrealism was to Victorian art. It is an anti-novel—a novel that dispenses with the traditional elements of novels—precisely because it was conceived as a fan fiction novel.I open my eyes and glance up at him.

My inner goddess looks like someone snatched her ice cream. Log In Sign Up. A few key differences would be that Christian does not force Anastasia to eat at every encounter the way he does in the book, is a bit more playful in the movie, threatens Anastasia a lot less and lets her speak her mind more often than she is able to in the book.
