Kim Kardashian may be a head-in-the-clouds egomaniac, but her sis Khloe Kardashian has always come off as rational, sweet, and chill. Her latest remarks to hit the web don't exactly undermine that rep, but they're certainly more irritating than inspirational.
When Celebuzz asked Khloe about Fifty Shades of Grey last week, she admitted she hadn't, which is cool. It's not for everyone. But then she went on to say, "What everyone tells me is that if you're missing out on a sex life, if you read the book, it makes you want to have a sex life. And I have a phenomenal sex life, so I'm not dying to read written porn. I would rather watch porn than read a different version of porn. But, I don't know what it's about." Oh, Khloe, Khloe, Khloe! Way to put your foot in your mouth!
For anyone out there like Khloe who have a very misinformed idea of what Fifty Shades and its ilk is -- that it is "mommy porn"/Twilight fan fiction for undersexed housewives -- let's get one thing straight, shall we? There are plenty of women, of all ages, who have "phenomenal sex lives" who are enjoying Fifty Shades or other erotic literature. "Reading written porn" isn't just for singles, geeks, or losers who are missing out on a sex life. And as much as I adore that Fifty Shades does seem to have sparked something in people who were struggling to reclaim (or even initially claim!) their horny inner goddess, erotica is not just for or being appreciated by women whose libido is MIA.
In fact, it sounds like Khloe doesn't know what she's missing out on! Your sex life should always be evolving to keep your relationship afloat. And tapping into your imagination by reading a steamy book is one brilliant way to do that. If she shut off all that porn she'd rather be watching long enough to enjoy some silent sustained sexy reading, who knows what kind of ideas Khloe could come up with for turning up the heat with Lamar? Erotica could inspire her to try things that would help her take her sex life to a whole new level.
Oh well, to each Kardashian their own! And really, who am I to expect any of them to pick up a book -- even if it is Fifty Shades of Grey?
Do you agree that women Fifty Shades or other erotica isn't just for women who are "missing out on a sex life"?
