Communication in Kink: Understanding the Influence of the Fifty Shades of Grey Phenomenon
This edited collection focuses on varying communication perspectives in the Fifty Shades of Grey series. In particular, the chapters focus on kinky people's perceptions of the series; consent, ownership, feminist desire in 24/7 BDSM; erotic romance writing in the post Fifty Shades of Grey landscape; sexual education; news coverage of the series; the rhetoric used in the series; and depictions of consent.
The contributors address how a series as dominant in popular culture as Fifty Shades of Grey can affect people involved in a community, those on the outside, and those waiting for an opportunity to explore. Scholars of popular culture, communication, media studies, literary studies, and sociology will find this book particularly useful.
