On August 5th, 2015, I became suddenly curious as I sat comfortably on my couch. I wondered,  then and there, what novels topped Amazon’s all time Best-Selling. I’m not sure why I cared. Maybe, I thought I would discover a new up and coming author. Maybe, I thought I would be impressed with the selection. Better yet, maybe I knew I would find something that would grind my gears.

And as you can see, I did. Apparently, the majority are still obsessed over Fifty Shades of Grey! Which means that majority of America is all about the kinky sex, right? At least, in closet? I suppose, but Fifty Shades isn’t even the cream of smut. It’s highly popular because it is easily accessible yet just barely offensive.

Want to read something really smutty? Read The Chariot of Flesh. I forget the author, some bloke that died of a heroin overdose, but that’s not the point.

The point is how could it be that Fifty Shades is STILL the number one book on Amazon? How could it be that a poorly written, joke of a smut, Twilight spin fanfic beats everything else in popularity?

That’s just retarded. I know we’re supposed to not use the dreaded R word as it offense, but when the majority vote with dollars to make Fifty Shades #1 again it is exactly that.

Am I jealous? Am I green with envy? Well, sort of, because Fifty makes it seem so easy. Erotica existed long before Fifty, but then Fifty Shades comes along and becomes a sensation! Why? How?

There is better erotica out their both in content and in prose, yet they don’t even come close to Fifty’s success.

Let me know what you think. What’s your reaction to this?
