How did the film “Fifty Shades of Grey” change the culture of dating and sex?

“Fifty Shades of Grey” isn’t a very good movie. Critics savaged the film, and audiences generally gave the film poor ratings as well despite solid performances by Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.

Still, the film had a significant impact on our culture in the context of dating and sex. The quality of the film didn’t really matter. It touched a nerve and generated one of those inflection points where we saw a real shift in attitudes for both men and women.

Increased Awareness and Discussion of BDSM

Before the release of “Fifty Shades of Gray,” many adults were aware of kink and BDSM (Bondage, Discipline/Dominance, Submission/Sadism, and Masochism), but most knew little about it, and these things were not discussed often. The film introduced the practice of BDSM to a mainstream audience. For many, this was their first exposure to this wild and fascinating subset of sexual behavior. As a result, conversations about BDSM became more common in media and everyday life.

For some women, it sparked interests and desires that they didn’t realize they had. Or, it validated fantasies that they were reluctant to confront and express. For some men, it also gave them permission to explore this with their female partners.

Some of today’s celebrities enjoy the luxurious lifestyle offered to them by the casinos of the world. At these venues they can find their favorite casino games as well as gaming tournaments. There are actually many celebrities today that enjoy gambling. Some prefer to play their favorite games for charity while others want to gamble for fun. Some actors have been introduced to gambling from the films in which they have starred. As a result, some celebrities are prominent figures in the casino world.

George Clooney is a well-known celebrity that also enjoys casino gambling. The actor starred in two of the hottest gambling movies, Ocean’s 11 and Ocean’s 12. During the filming of these movies, Clooney and fellow co-stars were known to enjoy poker. Clooney is known to frequent various table games in the casino. These games include poker, roulette and blackjack. Clooney became so enamoured with the activity that he did make an attempt to be part of a group of investors who were to build their own casino. This occurred about 6 years ago and unfortunately enough investors could not be secured.

Another celebrity that enjoys playing poker is Matthew Perry. An avid player, Perry is probably best known for his long standing role on the sit-com, Friends. Perry plays both for personal gain in tournaments as well as for charity. Perry likes casinos that can cater to his desire for privacy. In fact, the Bellagio has provided him private weekends in their casino. Perry was afforded the opportunity to play only in the private areas of the casino and given access to back entrances. While Perry enjoys spending an evening out in a land based casino, he also enjoys playing at home. With many online casino sites from which to select, Perry can also maintain privacy when gaming through this format.
