This is when we start to get a glimpse into the background of both characters. At only 27 years old, Grey is portrayed as someone well beyond his years. Ana is everything that we despise about Twilight heroine Bella Swan — painfully aware of her shortcomings, juxtaposed as a very immature, inexperienced girl and a woman with a thesaurus vocabulary and a moderately smart mouth.
Ana is like putty in his hands. He seals her fate when she drunk dials him from the bar later that week real professional, Ana! He of course has the ability to track her phone, shows up at the bar, and holds back her hair while she pukes her guts out. Why did she get so drunk? Oh, because she had never drank before. Ana wakes up the next morning in his hotel room — fully clothed — and he asks to see her again under better circumstances.
The tension is building. In the following pages, we see a relationship develop, as the wealthy Christian showers her with gifts, such as a laptop and an Audi, as well as his signature lack of emotional availability. Eventually, amid warnings about his own dark secrets, Christian Grey tells Ana who he really is — a sexual deviant who likes to dominate his women into submission — literally.
He wants Ana to be his sexual slave, locked under his thumb, required to sign a contract unenforceable by law , that locks her into a set of rules. Along with this reveal, he asks her to sign an NDA, no doubt to preserve his professional reputation. She is a virgin.
The plot thickens. Let us now pause to assess the situation: First of all, Ana manages to graduate college without ever being drunk, ever having sex, and without owning a laptop. The last point is what concerns me the most. We have a girl — a virgin — tampering with a guy who wants to get his rocks off by beating the crap out of her — and she is okay with this — but then she refers to a laptop as a mean machine and to Christian as a multi-bagillionaire.
Who is this idiot? Moving on. The contract has a list of rules that Ana will be required to follow. She must workout, eat regularly, maintain her health and hygiene, wear the clothing he provides, obey his every request, and spend every weekend with him for a period of three months.
She also is forbidden to touch Christian or make eye contact with him. The contract is negotiable, so she opts to change the mandated number of workouts from four-times per week to three.
He also mentions other paperwork, but first takes her to his playroom full of BDSM toys and gear. There, Christian informs her that the second contract will be one of dominance and submission , and there will be no romantic relationship, only a sexual one.
The contract even forbids Ana from touching Christian or making eye contact with him. At this point, Christian realises that Ana is a virgin and takes her virginity without making her sign the contract. The following morning, Ana and Christian again have sex. His mother arrives moments after their sexual encounter and is surprised by the meeting, having previously thought Christian was homosexual , because he was never seen with a woman.
Christian and Ana plan to meet again, and he takes Ana home, where she discovers several job offers and admits to Kate that she and Christian had sex. Over the next few days, Ana receives several packages from Christian. She and Christian email each other, with Ana teasing him and refusing to honour parts of the contract, such as only eating foods from a specific list.
Ana later meets with Christian to discuss the contract and becomes overwhelmed by the potential BDSM arrangement and the potential of having a sexual relationship with Christian that is not romantic in nature. Because of these feelings, Ana runs away from Christian and does not see him again until her college graduation, where he is a guest speaker.
Ana and Christian once again meet to further discuss the contract, and they go over Ana's hard and soft limits.
Christian spanks Ana for the first time, and the experience leaves her both enticed and slightly confused. This confusion is exacerbated by Christian's lavish gifts and the fact that he brings her to meet his family.
The two continue with the arrangement without Ana's having yet signed the contract. After successfully landing a job with Seattle Independent Publishing SIP , Ana further bristles under the restrictions of the non-disclosure agreement and her complex relationship with Christian.
The tension between Ana and Christian eventually comes to a head after Ana asks Christian to punish her in order to show her how extreme a BDSM relationship with him could be. Christian fulfils Ana's request, beating her with a belt, and Ana realises they are incompatible. Devastated, she breaks up with Christian and returns to the apartment she shares with Kate.
Background and publication[ edit ] James in The Fifty Shades trilogy was developed from a Twilight fan fiction series originally titled Master of the Universe and published episodically on fan-fiction websites under the pen name "Snowqueen's Icedragon".
After comments concerning the sexual nature of the material, James removed the story from the fan-fiction websites and published it on her own website, FiftyShades.
Later she rewrote Master of the Universe as an original piece, with the principal characters renamed Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and removed it from her website before publication. Good on her—she's doing well. That's great! The first, titled Fifty Shades of Grey, was released as an e-book and a print on demand paperback in May by The Writers' Coffee Shop, a virtual publisher based in Australia.
The Writers' Coffee Shop had a restricted marketing budget and relied largely on book blogs for early publicity, but sales of the novel were boosted by word-of-mouth recommendation.
The book's erotic nature and perceived demographic of its fan base as being composed largely of married women over thirty led to the book being dubbed "Mommy Porn" by some news agencies.
Many other erotic works quickly became best-sellers following Fifty Shades' success, while other popular works, such as Anne Rice 's The Sleeping Beauty trilogy, have been reissued this time without pseudonyms to meet the higher demand. James its best-selling author, replacing J. Rowling , though worldwide the Harry Potter series sold more than million copies compared with Fifty Shades of Grey's sales of 60 million copies. Salman Rushdie said about the book: "I've never read anything so badly written that got published.
