50 shades of destruction to our kids

Julie Samrick

I can see why “50 Shades of Grey” has enamored grown women everywhere. The story of recent college graduate Anastasia Steele’s dark and sexually charged relationship with extremely wealthy, dashingly handsome Christian Grey has only one hitch — Grey’s kinky, S&M fetishes are non-negotiable if Ana wants to be his girlfriend.  Christian is as deviant […]
