Guantanamo detainees can’t get enough ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’
Washington Times ^ | Tuesday, July 30, 2013 | By Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 07/30/2013 1:21:20 PM PDT by Perdogg

Fifty Shades of Grey, the salacious best-selling E. L. James novel often referred to as “Mommy Porn,” is the most popular reading material among Guantanamo detainees in the secretive Camp Seven, Rep. Jim Moran learned last week.

“Rather than the Quran, the book that is requested most by the [high-value detainees] is Fifty Shades of Grey. They’ve read the entire series in English, but we were willing to translate it,” the Virginia Democrat, who advocates for closing Guantanamo, told the Huffington Post. “I guess there’s not much going on, these guys are going nowhere, so what the hell.”

Don't be surprised.

I haven't read the book, but I've heard the "cliff notes".

The entire series is about a BDSM relationship between a young woman and a slightly older man.

It's all about the man dominating the woman, in various ways. I can see how it would appeal to Muslim terrorists.

It's horrible!

It's not sexy, he's a stalking, control freak and she doesn't even have room temperature I.Q.!

This is my favorite review of the book: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/340987215?page=98#comment_79534115

Spoilers and NSFW.

Porn has been around for a long time.

If you ever get to Italy and get south to Pompeii you can see the ruins there. There is one particular place the tour guides always show, it's the ancient version of porn: a little sculpture of a man mas___bat---. It's a hoot.

I’ve heard many people suggest over the past few years that a lot of muzzie
craziness can be blamed on sexual repression. I suggest we carpet bomb Muslim countries with porno and sex toys. It’s worth a try.

A Pakistani Muslim I once knew told me the US could conquer any Muslim country it chooses just by airdropping Playboy Magazines and live pigs.

They should get the detainees hooked on this show:

My Little Pony

And I’m not kidding. I’m no fan, however if we can get them hooked, send them all the little stuffed animals and other paraphernalia and circulate photos of them back in the muslim world. I think that would be both extremely funny and may have additional benefits.

Bronies, men who dig My Little Pony, feel misunderstood
Adults males obsessed with the children’s show say they’re into it for animation, plot, and character development. At Silver Snail comics in Toronto, fans come to buy the latest volume in the series.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fandom

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Little_Pony:_Friendship_Is_Magic_fandom

The show received praise from television critics and parental groups. It also found an unlikely audience in a large group of Internet users in late 2010 and early 2011. These older fans, typically males from 18 to 35, were drawn to the show’s characters, stories, animation style, and influence of the show’s propagation as an Internet meme

A man masticulating a bat? There’s an ancient statue of Ozzy Osborne in Pompei???

I’ve seen postings on FR from some who claim they are men who are into that show.

I’ve never heard a man in the “real world” make the same claim.

That said, it strikes me as creepy as hell!

I haven’t seen those posts, thankfully.

What is surprising to me is the admission and defense made by “men” about their “fondness” for this show.

My college aged daughter told me about his phenomenon about a year ago. I didn’t believe her until she sent me a few links.

Yes, very creepy and very disturbing. I suppose we shouldn’t be shocked since the De-masculation of men has been going on for some time.

I stand by my idea to get these detainees hooked on the show.

As a young Airman, about 19-20 years old, my friends and I would hit the chowhall and meet afterwards in the dorm and watch “The Transformers” and sometimes also “GI Joe.”

There was a lot of beer involved.

I honestly believe that if someone tried to play something like “My Little Pony” they’d get their butt thrown out the window after a severe beat down.

LOL, those were the days.

Saturday Night Live should do a skit about the last part of your post.

Just to point out the ridiculousness of our current military’s policy. I think Monty Python did something similar.

Turning them into bronies would be fitting since Fifty Shades of Grey, or as I call it, Fifty Shades of Gay, as a book is really a grooming tool to get heterosexuals comfortable with the mechanics of gay sex.

Since the muslims are already comfortable with gay sex, they would probably identify with brony-ism as well.

Yep.

The beauty of this idea is that the gay/left can’t oppose it.

Oh, that was hilarious! You know, it sounds like every trashy romance novel I read when I was a teen in the late 70s and early 80s, just... without the petticoats, carriages, castles, wars, pirates, etc
