Since the release of Fifty Shades of Grey in bookstores, women have been asking me about sex contracts. Are they real? How do they work? Finally, if you think about it, E. L. James` Fifty Shades of Grey is a contract negotiation of more than 500 pages. In exchange, Christian asks Ana to be his submissive two days a week. In this context, submission means that Ana would undoubtedly respond to Christian`s mood. If she does not obey, he would have the right to “punish” her by any method he chooses. This seems detestable to Ana until she learns that the pain cannot involve “emotional, physical, or spiritual damage,” and there are mutually agreed “safe words” that can slow down or stop any activity at any time. . . .
