Ever heard of 50 Shades of Grey? Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of years, I have to assume the answer to that question is a resounding, “Yes!”
But just so we’re on the same page, 50 Shades of Grey is an erotic trilogy made popular by its graphic depictions of kinky sexual taboos involving bondage, dominance, and submission.
Despite being labeled as bizarre, vulgar, and perverse, it sold more than 100 million copies worldwide on its way to shattering dozens of records, including the fastest selling paperback book of all time.
And who’s buying it? Women! In droves. That’s who. They freaking LOVE it!
Now, you may think 50 Shades of Grey is some sort of outlier that just got lucky. One of those “one hit wonders” that comes out at just the right time, smashes records, and then falls into a dark abyss and is never heard from again.
But that’s simply not the case…
You see, the literary genre known as Literotica continues to grow in popularity at a phenomenal rate. 50 Shades of Grey isn’t the first novel in this category to hit it big, and it won’t be the last. That’s for sure.
Often described as “porn for the female mind”, Literotica is the top selling e-book category on Amazon. So then the question becomes why? Why do women buy this stuff in droves? What is it about Literotica that turns women on, gets them emotionally addicted, and sexually excited?
I tried to figure this out for myself. I wanted to know what all the fuss was about, so I actually started to read a copy of 50 Shades of Grey. And do you want to know how far I got?
Chapter 2. More like 1 ½, but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt and call it 2. The storyline is awful. The writing just downright atrocious. As a man, I clearly don’t “get it”.
And I’m not the only one because 50 Shades of Grey has been slammed in the media by writers and literary critics for being awful.
How awful? How about this direct quote…
“I’ve never read anything so badly written that got published. It makes the Twilight series look like War and Peace.”
Ouch! And yet, women are totally awestruck and addicted to it…and every book like it. And they just keep coming back for more and more and more.
And that brings me to the Girlfriend Activation System and a guy named Christian who figured out why Literotica has such a powerful hold on the female mind.
Christian is a dating coach, and after combing through dozens (maybe even hundreds) of Literotica novels, he noticed a well-defined and repeatable pattern. These books all followed the same proven formula to reel women in.
Christian found it didn’t matter who the story was about. It could be a total badass: the type of guy you would consider an “alpha male”. Or it could be a skinny nerd who repels women at every turn. In the end, the things that made women fall in love with these guys was always the same.
Christian dubbed this, “The Obsession Story”. And when the men in these novels follow each step of the obsession formula, women can’t help but fall in love with them and crave them on both physical and emotional levels.
Christian believes the Obsession Story is hard-wired into every woman’s brain. So when a woman picks up and reads Literotica novels like 50 Shades of Grey, she vicariously lives out her “Obsession Story” through the characters in the book.
That’s why women can’t get enough of these novels. And that’s why they could care less about strong narrative and good writing.
With that discovery, Christian had an idea. What if a guy could actually make the woman he wants fall in love with him by using the Obsession Story?
If it really is “hardwired” in her brain on an evolutionary level, then even if a woman wasn’t aware of it, she would still be genetically programmed to fall for it, right? And it would be way more powerful than things like money, good looks, fame, etc. That was exactly Christian’s thinking when he created his Girlfriend Activation System (GFAS).
Designed for “average” guys, the Girlfriend Activation System teaches men how to tap into a woman’s Obsession Story step-by-step to suck her in and turn her into a loving, loyal, and committed girlfriend with the same passion and desire so many women share for Christian Grey and other Literotica heroes.
And it clearly works, because Christian’s Girlfriend Activation System is the best-selling “girlfriend-getting system” of all time. Learn more about GFAS at http://newspapercat.org.
