In the Our America episode 'Shades ok Kink' lisa Ling goes beyond the best selling fantasy novel Fifty Shades of Grey to explore the real world of BDSM.
Lisa talks with an assortment of people in the BDSM world, including Mistress Nina Payne who offers introductory classes in BDSM, and a couple who plays together, but who of whom both consider themselves dominant. One of them always has to reverse and play the submissive.
The show was fairly entertaining, but didn't really offer anything groundbreaking. I found the part about cigar play a little odd, but hey... to each their OWN ;)

It seems like everyone is jumping on the Fifty Shades bandwagon. The latest offering is the E! investigates 'The Real 50 Shades of Grey'.
This one hour documentary is hosted by Alicia Quarles and features therapists, authors and experts talking about the practice, as well as profiling real world couples discussing their experiences in the BDSM world.
It first aired on Tuesday January 22nd.
Youtube keeps removing links to the show, so you will have to find it yourself. Here is the IMDB page
I must admit I would love to know what she is really like... Did her producers get their hands on a normal girl, and twisted her to do what they thought would be popular, or is she a media genius like Madonna or Lady Gaga, who know's how to get and keep themselves in the limelight.
My guess is we'll find out only once she has her major meltdown, spends some time in a clinic, and becomes a born again Christian...or if she stands the test of time.
