To think that if you are reading 50 Shades in the school playground...

People really aren't going to think you are cool and edgy, they really aren't!

Maybe they don't care about being cool and edgy? Maybe they're just reading?

I'd say YABU if they were reading it aloud to their class though.

tbh my nearly 71 yr old mum lent it to me i got half way through and thought this is utter crap i just did nt get the fuss!

x2boys Thu 02-May-13 17:35:32

plus my beautiful little three year old son is called christian and it kind of put me off!

I thought it was tame tbh.

Wonder what the reaction would be if it was a dad reading pulp erotica in the playground?

My mum got it all wrong.

She wanted to read it 'to see what all the fuss was about'

She downloaded 40 Shades... which is about the IRA I believe.

She didn't understand what all the fuss was about.

I was actually relieved, last thing I want to do is talk to my mum about a shit book that has made her have her first wank.

Whether a mum or dad I would judge them for having such crap taste in erotica. Or books in general.

Ew, they might be getting aroused, in public. Tacky (male or female)

Nothing wrong with getting aroused, BTW, just not great to advertise the fact in public.

sat opposite a mum at the orthodontist who was reading it sitting between her teenage DS and DD. Did think it was a tad inappropriate.

Exactly Jamie. I get grossed out when I sit next to someone reading it on the tube. It's like they're advertising the fact they're feeling all horny. I'd rather not know.

If course they could just be feeling disgusted at the crap writing. It's like the Da Vinci Code of porn.

Thing is, this is well, um, just so last year!!!! This person is nice enough but likes to portray herself as a bit quirky, but that is just yucky at school pick up tbh. I read it, it was absolute shite
