Have you read Fifty Shades of Grey?
I've only read the first few chapters and flicked through the rest, but like nearly everyone else in the English-speaking world, I've been caught in the hurricane of hype.

(That's bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism. Yes, of course you knew. So did I, obviously.)
