Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey was poorly written pseud-fanfiction that glorified an abusive, misogynistic relationship while making the BDSM community look like a bunch of violent, pube-pulling woman-beaters that ended up selling millions of copies because bored housewives have no idea how to differentiate healthy erotica from total crap. So of course, according to actress Chloe Bridges who auditioned for the movie, the word “sperm” is going to appear in the movie quite a few times. Heavens to betsy, a sperm you say! Oh my delicate sensibilities. Who would have though such torrid language would appear in a movie such as this? Cosmo reports …

“If you read these three pages of asides, you would die,” the actress told Cosmopolitan at Monday night’s Alice + Olivia presentation in New York. “I still like show them to my friends for fun.”

Bridges was hesitant to reveal too much about the script but, “The scene was, like, the girl telling her friends about some sexcapade she had,” she said. “But it goes into extreme detail and uses the word ‘sperm’ a couple times. I was like, I don’t know guys, I have to go home to my grandparent’s house in a few months at Christmas, I don’t know if I can do this.”

And the word “sperm” wasn’t meant in a medical context — it was used “in a very sexual way,” Bridges explained. “It was intense. So mad props to the people who are going to do it. You had to be able to take it seriously and not laugh or turn bright red.”

Really? Does anyone actually still call it “sperm” outside of a medical definition? Bless their hearts. Even doctors call it jizz or spunk or whatever. I mean granted, Bridges doesn’t seem to have much in the ways of open-mindedness if the word “sperm” sends her into a tizzy, but I think the use of such a straight-forward, clinical term kind of shows you what kind of thought went into this movie.
