    I think it a waste of my precious time to read these tyoes of books. There are so many great well ritten books, not necessarIly religious, (though I prefer those, )like the classics that are better for you heart and mind. Also i personally think that “spanking” your spouse for any reason is not treating him or her with dignity and I imagine God not being pleased with such treatment ;it cheapens the relationship and is degrading to any of God’s creation.

    LOL!! if people are so easily swayed by reading 50 Shades of Gray to go down a path to adultry than they were going to take that path anyway. I read 50 Shades and while the writing is not the best it was still a good story behind the BDSM theme. It didn’t make me lust after anyone other than my husband and if we choose to add a little spanking to our love life than who’s business it is other than ours? I doubt that God is passing judgement on me for having a little fun inside my own healthy marriage. Maybe if we quit thinking of sexual fun as being “deviant” than we can relax a little. I really don’t think God made sex enjoyable for us to be uptight about it.
