Two or three years ago every girl at the gym was pedaling away on the bike or stepping on the stair climber reading the same book. The book cover was light yellow and appeared to have some sort of cartoon butterfly on it. Surely they were all reading another stupid Harry Potter type book, I thought.
After leaving a long-term relationship, I started getting more aggressive with women. I would spank them hard, pull their hair, bite their necks, and give them orgasms.
I kept waiting for a girl to tell me, “No, you’re going to far.” The farther I pushed the boundaries, the more these women wanted.
Years later I watched the film version of the book all of those gym girls had been reading, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo:
Shocking and brutal, the rape of Lisbeth Salander by her guardian/probation officer is the inciting incident to the quest for revenge that helps power “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” Portrayed starkly and disturbingly in the original Swedish film adaptation of the book, the American, David Fincher-directed movie version also sought to bring to screen the unmerciful sequence of events described on the pages of Stieg Larsson’s hit novel.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is basically a book about rape. It sold 13 million copies.
A more recent breakthrough hit, 50 Shades of Grey, is also a book about rough sex:
The novel’s protagonist, Christian Grey, has a dungeon with all the extras and asks his partner to sign a non-disclosure agreement that spells out on the written page that she will do what he tells her, no questions asked. He tells Anastasia — who doesn’t know what to make of the situation except that she really, really likes it — straight out that he’ll never ever spend the night with her — that basically, he’s all about the sex, NOT the cuddling.
Men treat the question, “What do women want?” as a mystery.
Women want to be dominated. They want to be choked unconscious, tied up, and have their hair pulled.
I’ve said this for years, and now have the book publishing data to prove it.
Push the boundaries. While you might be thinking, “This has to be too much,” she is thinking, “More!”
