Twenty things men are asking about Fifty Shades of Grey

"She compares it to a Popsicle?"

By this point you will almost certainly be aware of EL James’ mega-selling Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, concerning the romance between recent graduate Anastasia Steele, multi-millionaire Christian Grey and several sex toys.

The men we know are somewhat confused. They see women reading it on trains, hear them talking about it in office kitchens and see female columnists discussing it in print. They haven’t read it. This is what they’re asking us.
