50 Shades Won’t Include The Infamous Tampon Scene, So Here, Have This Fan Re-Creation
Holy f***. Sweet mother of all... Jeez.
The video is sort of NSFW in the weirdest way possible.
Here’s the thing about 50 Shades of Grey. If you’re going to make the horrible source material into a film, you might as well go all the way, right? Sadly, the filmmakers have decided to omit a crucial scene from the film – the tampon scene. One fan won’t let that stand, however, and has seen fit to create the scene in all its CG glory.
And yes, before you ask, this is a real thing that happens in a real book that was really published and real people bought real copies of. Here, let Cookie Monster read it for you (NSFL):
Honestly, this post is mostly just an excuse to remind you, gentle reader, that 50 Shades is not an accurate representation of the BDSM lifestyle. 50 Shades of Grey glorifies what is in no uncertain terms an emotionally, verbally, and physically abusive relationship. As a survivor of an abusive relationship it terrifies me to think that women look at books and films like 50 Shades and its direct source material, Twilight, and romanticize the relationships they see there as desirable and worthy of emulating.
Let me remind everyone that if someone tries to get you to sign a sex contract, it’s not BDSM. If someone tries to control where you work, it’s not sweet. If you feel nervous telling your partner that you want to see a friend of the opposite sex, there is a problem. Jenny Trout has written a great post about all the signs of abuse in 50 Shades, and I highly recommend giving it a read. In fact, if you’re curious about 50 Shades but don’t want to subject yourself to the horrible text, check out Trout’s “Jenny Reads 50 Shades” series, or the equally hilarious and elucidating blog, I Detonate Around Him.
