Scary Reasons Why You Must Not Read The “Fifty Shades of Grey”

Updated on October 11, 2014

Reasons not to read 'fifty shades of grey'

It Has Caused So Many Marriage Divorce
In case you don't know, Christian Grey's fifty shades trilogy has caused some divorce among married couples. I am sure you did hear about the story of a woman who filed for a divorce just because her husband couldn't recreate some of the sex scenes explained in the book. Now, if you think that's the only divorce case resulting from Christian Grey's fifty shades trilogy, then you're probably not aware of the situation because that woman's case happens to be the one media captured but never the only case.

Increased Infidelity amongst young women (age 18 - 24):
Christian Grey's trilogy seems to have awakened young women's extreme urge for sexual exploration, resulting in many young women keeping multiple sexual partners just to feel the vibe as narrated in Grey's trilogy.

STDs and STIs are on the increase
Grey's fifty shades did not only wake people up from their sexual slumber, it also made older couples to become more outspoken, bold and adventurous with their sex life, and of course, this led to an increased transmission of STDs and STIs.

Caused Depression in Many Men:
Men who couldn't recreate the scenes narrated in the book were seen as archaic, boring and unadventurous by their Grey-liberated wives and girlfriends, resulting to depression amongst this set of unlucky men.

Some men in an effort to master Grey's scenes, have ended up in a state of emotional depression as a result of failure in getting it right.

Increase in Unwanted Pregnancies:
Fifty shades trilogy has caused so much sexual fantasies and exploration among couples to the extent that many are beginning to make more babies than planned- all thanks to the almighty fifty shades of grey's phenomenon which awakened women's wild fantasies.

Increased Rate of Extreme Sex Exploration:
The number of couples who engage in extreme sex practice increased after the release of Grey's fifty shades trilogy.

This on the other hand led to an increased sales for rope sellers, as more and more couples began to experiment the handcuff scene as narrated in Grey's fifty shades.

Increased Rate of Bedroom Accident:
Even though there has been cases of people getting stuck in handcuffs before the book came out, what bothers many is the fact that the number of couples getting stuck in handcuffs increased to an alarming rate after Fifty shades of grey phenomenon came out, making firefighters to work extra hours just to keep up with the demand for rescue of handcuffed couples.

Contracting Herpes Through The Book is Possible:
Even though it sounds like an exaggeration, we shouldn't be fast in divorcing the fact that it is possible after a Belgian professor claimed in his reports that he actually found a strain of herpes commonly associated with cold sores in a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey's Phenomenon he picked up from a library. This sure sounds disgusting, but should rather put you at alert the next time you think about picking up a copy of the book at the local library.

I know what you're pondering in your mind right now- how did the professor stumbled upon this discovery? And you know how? He was testing 10 of the most popular books today to find out what kinds of things he could find in the pages. Other discoveries he found included traces of cocaine in one of the best sellers, which leaves us wondering why? And your guess is as good as mine.

Fifty Shades Distorts Readers' Grammar:
Fifty Shades is of course a poorly written book with words that have no real meaning in English language, and like every other popular culture, readers have adopted some of these meaningless words in their day-to-day communication. One of such words is “laters”.

      The biggest offense of the Fifty Shades books is how poorly they're written.
