At last... here is THE book for the woman whose husband doesn’t understand the appeal of the “Fifty Shades” experience, co-authored by a woman and wife of then 35 years, and her own reluctant husband. Like millions of women around the world, Pam was captivated by the Fifty Shades of Grey books. Not only did the story of Christian and Ana turn her on, it validated thoughts and fantasies she had long suppressed, believing them to be abnormal. As she came to grips with who she was and what she wanted, the challenge became getting her “old school” husband of 35 years to come around. Doug was no easy conversion. He was stubbornly stuck in his traditional concepts of marriage, vanilla sex, and the roles of men and women. For more than a year the man who had spent much of his life trying to do whatever pleased the wife he loved, firmly resisted reading “those damn books.” In fact, inwardly he was angry that Pam even thought or desired the things in those books. In Section 1 of “The Reluctant Husband’s Guide to Becoming Christian Grey,” Doug and Pam share in honest and unabashed fashion, their transition from vanilla to the Dark Side. It wasn’t easy for Doug to move outside his comfort zone and become Sir D, Pam’s fantasy of Ana’s Christian Grey. The two detail their growth, both as individuals and as a loving married couple with frankness and, from time to time, humor. Section 2 is a comprehensive look at BDSM and various types of play. It includes specific scenes with instructions on adding them to the reader’s own play time, instructions regarding safety, examination of various tools and toys, and more.
