Fifty Shades of Fetish: The Real Story

Don’t believe everything you read or see.  Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L. James, part of a trilogy published in 2011 and 2012, topped best-seller lists around the world.  The series has sold over 100 million copies worldwide and had been translated into 52 languages. It set a record in the United Kingdom as the fastest-selling paperback of all time. 

But the book and adapted film stereotypes sexual fetishes that Dr. Fous will debunk.   The presentation will educate the audience about the role of fetishes in healthy sexual relationships
