By now we all know the meteoric levels of popularity that Fifty Shades of Grey has reached, but did you know that Fifty Shades of Grey originated as Twilight fan fiction? It was originally called Master of the Universe and was published on the Twilight fansite. After it was deemed too “sexual” in nature, it was removed from the site by the author, E L James and was expanded and reworked into the first of the trilogy it would eventually become. The attraction to the book series has always been the intense level of eroticism — dubbed “Mummy Porn” – supposedly improving the sex lives of thousands of married women across the country, and bringing BDSM (Bondage and Discipline, Sadism and Masochism) into the mainstream of erotic fiction. With the adaptation of the book to the silver screen, producer Michael De Luca insisted that the film version is going to weigh more heavily towards “eroticism” as opposed to “explicit.”  De Luca was quoted as saying, “We’re going to give them what they expect, which is an intense and erotic love story, obviously the film can’t be as explicit as the book. A picture is worth a 1000 words. So to be erotic onscreen means I think an image is going to have way more power than reading the words on a page.”

The Focus Features pic is set to be released on February 13, 2015.
