Everybody’s been talking about “Fifty Shades of Gray” the notorious book soon to be movie, telling the story of a young girl experimenting with sexuality with a gorgeous, rich sadist.  So is it just a good fantasy, or is it something darker? 

A recent study by some Michigan State University researchers found that young women who are fans of the book are more likely to be prone to eating disorders, binge drinking and multiple sexual partners, than young women who have not read the books.  They are also more likely to have a verbally abusive partner.

Coincidence?  Maybe, but we’ll learn more Saturday when we talk with Amy Bonomi, PhD, Professor and Chair of the Human Development and Family Studies Department at Michigan State University. Dr. Bonomi’s research focuses on the long-term health effects of domestic violence, dating violence, and child abuse, and the intimacy dynamics/processes that keep violent relationships intact.  Dr. Bonomi and her colleagues analyzed abuse and harmed identity in the national bestseller, Fifty Shades of Grey, using the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s definitions of intimate partner violence. She is an associate editor at the Journal of Women’s Health and BMC Public Health, and is the recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award from the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University.

Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about “Fifty Shades of Gray.
