50 Shades Unseen

By now you or anyone else interested in the erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James may have seen the movie version. The book was okay and received a lot of good reviews especially if you have read all three books and learned what the story really is all about. For most people, it is not just the sex scenes that are important and exciting in the book. The story, the making of a dominant and submissive, family and motherhood are all interesting lessons to be learned from it.

What is one lesson that others may have missed in this novel? Well, one is there are things that "relationship takes work." There are a lot of people who believe that changing someone is the only way to go about a relationship. This is not true in most cases. If you are in a relationship only to change someone, then you or your partner or both of you will end up getting hurt.

In the novel Fifty Shades of Grey, it shows how Anastasia Steele made efforts in order to make the relationship work. She was not out to change Christian Grey from who and what he was. She went in a give and take relationship. Be willing to be a submissive, but get hearts and flowers as well.

So if you have not seen the movie or not read the book, don't get hung up on the vividly described sex scenes (from the book) or the show of behind and frontal nudity (from the movie). Remember that the story is also about two persons who were willing to make sacrifices to make a relationship work.
