Movie Review: Fifty Shades Darker

We know many are tired of having this movie shoved down their throats, however we would not be doing our job as a weekly news and educational source without addressing the second installment in the franchise responsible for bringing (perhaps incorrectly) BDSM and kink into the forefront of society.

The expo is big enough that it sprawls across … [Read more...]
