Within the culture industry of today, it would be reductionist to claim that these books interpellate readers—especially female ones—to occupy certain subject positions without allowing for their agency to influence such interpellations. Even more important is the attempt to reduce the trilogy to a simple linearity of cause and effect. Similar to many other phenomena, they are very complex constructs that should be seen as a point of convergence between a litany of cultural, social, sexual, economic, and political discursive practices that reveal more about the social subjects that read them than they do about the books themselves.
It is the combination of these elements that created a winning formula and, I suspect, had any of the elements that follow been lacking, the books would not have enjoyed such a great success. Beginning with psychoanalysis, it is crucial that these novels be approached as a form of transgressive fantasy rather than a wish-list for the modern-day woman. Fantasy functions as a space in which we are afforded the opportunity to act out all of those transgressive desires and dreams we have had to renounce to engage in a social contract with others.
Contrary to the perceived notion that in a fantasy we are imagining an ego- ideal or a vision of the self as one wishes the others to see us: For example, fantasising about being famous and powerful is at its heart a desire to arouse envy and jealousy and wield power over others rather than a narrative about a more well-known, beautiful, wonderful and coherent self.
A more accurate rendering of this relationship would be to see the books as representative of a fantasy that can be enjoyed from a safe distance similar to the experience of enjoying the violence and sexual transgression of a film from a masochistic subject position, submitting to another book, character, or film while ensuring it does not hurt us. On one level the books act as a fantasy that interpellates a willing participant in a Deleuzian masochistic aesthetic.
Ana may have surrendered all her power to Christian in the trilogy but this is not very different from the dynamics of a masochistic relationship. It is important to note here that, according to Gilles Deleuze , sadomasochism is a linguistic anomaly that misrepresents the reality of the relationship between torturer and tortured. The first book of the trilogy was originally conceived by James as fan fiction of the vampire Twilight series Bennett-Smith Residing outside the canonical world of fiction, the books were more of an exercise in a self-reflexive take on the niches and gaps James felt were left unfilled by the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer The attempt to fill that void thus should not be seen within the constraints of traditional works of fiction but rather as an aesthetic commentary that combines, in the forms of a pastiche, elements of sexual, material, and emotional excesses similar to any fantasy.
The trilogy is to fiction what surrealism was to Victorian art. It is an anti-novel—a novel that dispenses with the traditional elements of novels—precisely because it was conceived as a fan fiction novel.
The scopophilia of fan faction reflects the general fasciations with the sexual life of celebrities be they fictional or real. Thus, a pornographic tape of a celebrity is guaranteed to instantiate the scopic drive more forcefully than a tape of a virtual unknown. More pertinently, James incorporates the fetishised materialism of celebrity life embodied by the explosion of celebrity culture over the past two decades, aided by the ubiquity of the internet.
Not all popular representations of violence are incitements thereto. My primary intention has been to rescue the books from the grips of sadism to the annals of masochism, thereby alleviating any fears that women are subjecting themselves to abusive violence.
Once we get past that, feminists may begin to query why thousands of women have been swayed by the passions of this trilogy.

He switches on the sidelight and halts, staring at me. He closes his eyes and shakes his head. When he opens them, his expression has softened fractionally.
He takes a deep breath and swallows. Another mercurial mood swing, it's so hard to keep up. Obediently, I turn and my heart is thumping, desire instantly replacing unease, coursing through my blood and settling dark and yearning low, low in my belly. He scoops my hair off my back so it hangs down my right side, curling at my breast.
He places his index finger at the nape of my neck and achingly slowly drags it down my spine. His well-manicured fingernail gently grazes down my back.
His finger reaches the back of my halter dress midway down my spine, and hooking his finger beneath the top, he pulls me closer so that I step back against him. I feel him flush against my body. Leaning down, he inhales my hair. So sweet. My breathing changes, becoming shallow, rushed, full of expectation. His fingers are at my zipper. Achingly slow, once more he eases it down while his lips move, licking and kissing and sucking their way across to my other shoulder.
He is so tantalizingly good at this. My body resonates, and I start to squirm languidly beneath his touch. Still," he whispers, kissing me around my nape between each word. My fingers weave into his hair, and very gently I tug his soft, sexy hair.
I roll my head to one side to give him easier access to my neck. I feel him against me.
