I wouldn’t be ashamed to admit I would like to see the film version of “Fifty Shades of Grey”,

just to see how it was done from novel, while many women were looking forward to it, there were also women who worried for two things:

1. the promotion of domestic violence on women

2. how the violence would conflate with consented BDSM

There have been articles criticising how “Fifty Shades of Grey” cause greater problem on people’s understanding on BDSM in itself, for example the overshadowing on the fact that Submissive part and Dominating part would always have to discuss their limits etc before beginning, for example discussion on safe-words. While a lot of the time (from what I read on the novel), the heroine’s life was being controlled by Mr Grey – from the necessity of excercising and dieting, to she has to hide things from him so she wouldn’t have to deal with his tantums.

Therefore yes we have to not just make awareness upon what “Fifty Shades of Grey” conflated, but also to have more quality work of literature, television and movies to differentiate/distinguish BDSM from Domestic Abuse, as clearly there are a lot of confusion that were carried by various women on social media (esp Twitter) over the two.
