>I haven't conversed with women about theses matters over imageboards, it's been real life conversations. I have a hard time believing that every single woman I talked to was lying, or I somehow came across only oddballs, but there really is no benefit to them lying. Porn consumption is viewed as taboo, and if anything a woman in inclined to deny watching it to appease a man.

That's what women do, lie or mislead, well all people do really. Many women may think that telling somebody they view porn makes them more sexually attractive and seem more adventurous and depending on their social background and the man they are talking to they may think this will be attractive to them.

>Romantic book covers of the 80-'s-90's featured many men with a large build and long hair, likely because men having longer hair was popular in the 70's-90's. Now the image has changed to a swarthy man, perhaps business man type image. They seem to follow current trends.

Maybe but we are not looking at them and you did not post any, though I did not post any of the 2d ones I was talking about either.

>Even though the book ends with the female breaking off the relationship, that doesn't override that the majority of the book focuses on a sexually erotic story of a man raping and dominating a woman the entire story. You can read passages online on how these scenes are described, pretty graphic stuff with an "erotic" err brought in by the female, lusting for the man who is sexually abusive to her; it isn't written as an empowering female who breaks free from her captor, it's an erotic story.

Again, what Wikipedia says disagrees, even the section on controversy, most of that seems to be over BDSM and the fear that people reading it will try to do it themselves.

>At the beginning of the media hype, Dr. Drew and sexologist Logan Levkoff discussed on The Today Show[50] whether the book perpetuated violence against women; Levkoff said that while that is an important subject, this trilogy had nothing to do with it – this was a book about a consensual relationship. Dr. Drew commented that the book was "horribly written" in addition to being "disturbing" but stated that "if the book enhances women's real-life sex lives and intimacy, so be it."

Funnily enough it also says that women that read the book were weird.
