‘Inside the Fifty Shades: Real Women Confess’

“You don’t know what turns you on until it happens,” says a submissive in “Inside the Fifty Shades,” a documentary that explores the BDSM lifestyle sensationalized by the best-selling erotic novels of E.L. James. On the one hand, it’s nice to see a kink so often demonized in the movies personalized by many people who explain, cheerfully, that they enjoy being spanked or tied up. On the other, it’s kind of sad to see yet another underground phenomenon being cleaned up for the mainstream.
