Othersode #11: A High Budget Movie About Average Sex / 50 Shades Freed
7 days ago
On a very sexy edition of #BookSquadGoals, the squad breaks down the new film "Fifty Shades Freed," the so-called "climax" of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Join us as we discuss the strange plot, the use of ice cream during sex, pop sensation Rita Ora, and the utter lack of chemistry between the film's leads. We take a look at what this franchise gets wrong about BDSM and answer the most important question: Is this movie sexy? Plus, hear what's on the #BookSquadBlog (there's LOTS of great stuff right now!) and learn about our next book for the upcoming full episode, "American War" by Omar El Akkad.

I loved a lot of things about this film (and hated quite a few things as well), so this was excellent to listen to!
