Sexy Books That Put ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ to Shame

Sexy Books That Put Fifty Shades of Grey to Shame

I discovered my first BDSM erotica during my junior year in high school. I chanced upon them in the bookstore and even convinced my mother to pay for them along with my SAT prep books. As I cracked open those steamy pages, my teenage mind was blown. I locked my bedroom door and cozied up to my new books. So while I’m no stranger to hot, steamy sexy novels, I just couldn’t get into E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. I do appreciate that the novels made it easier for women to talk about their sexual fantasies.

If Fifty Shades was your first foray into bondage and dominance erotica, you need to make up for lost time. Whether you laughed at Christian Grey or imagined yourself bond with silk ties, here are some sexy books that will put Fifty Shades of Grey to shame.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, written by Anne Rice under the pseudonym A.N. Roquelaure, is the not your typical fractured fairy tale. Instead of being awoken with a chaste kiss on the lips, Beauty’s Prince stakes his claim on her in a much more adult manner. Beauty is thrust into a new life BDSM that she didn’t even know she wanted. This is the first of the The Sleeping Beauty trilogy so you’ll have plenty to keep you, er, busy.

Looking for a classic? Try The Story of O by Pauline Reage. First published in 1954, the short but intense story about a woman’s BDSM training into an elite secret club. This novel was so groundbreaking that the French authorities brought obscenity charges against the publisher. Author Anne Desclos did not reveal her true identity until forty years later. Trust me, there was a reason the French authorities were upset.

The Submissive and The Dominant by Tara Sue Me offers two different viewpoints in the BDSM relationship. Looking for more excitement in her life, librarian Abby applies for a new job: a submissive for a CEO Nathaniel. Abby is not as experienced as Nathaniel’s previous submissives but he’s willing to take on the challenge. The Submissive tells the story from Abby’s viewpoint while The Dominant takes you into Nathaniel’s head. The Training is the culmination of this sexually charged trilogy.
