Why Women Can’t Get Enough Of ’50 Shades of Grey’ (Video)

By Sherry Amatenstein, LCSW†for

One YourTango reader asks:

In this video, author of The complete Marriage Counselor and YourTango Expert Sherry Amatenstein explains the phenomenon that is EL James’ bestselling erotic fiction trilogy. “Instead of being concerned,” says Sherry, “be grateful! Your wife is saying she wants to be more sexually in sync with you; she’s saying “women can like porn too, and also like fantasy.”
