Proposals And Sex At Fifty Shades Screenings

As soon as we heard that the Fifty Shades books were being made into films, we knew what that would mean. There would be tales about people being caught having sex during screenings, or other cinema goers complaining about strange buzzing sounds.

Unsurprisingly, there have been many news reports and rumours about the things that have happened at Fifty Shades screenings. We’ve heard everything from the outfits visitors are turning up in (latex cat suit anyone?), to the objects that are found on the floor under the seats.

We’ve also heard about some of the more surprising things that have happened, from people getting down on one knee to propose to people being attacked at screenings. Yikes!

The good

We’ll start off with the good news! One man decided that his date with his girlfriend of eight years was the perfect time to pop the question. I’m not sure that seeing Fifty Shades (which is a film about an abusive relationship, in my opinion) is the most romantic thing, but it is clear that his girlfriend loved the series which makes it perfect.

However, just getting down on one knee wasn’t what he wanted. Instead, he arranged it with the cinema to play a short video he made before the screening, and a TV crew came in to film the proposal.

Thankfully, she said yes, and the two then sat themselves down in a full cinema to watch Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan acting out sex scenes for two hours… and they say romance is dead!

The bad

It just wouldn’t be a story about the strange things happening at a Fifty Shades of Grey screening without us talking about the people getting down and dirty, right? After all, the film has been described as softcore porn, so it is hardly surprising women and men are feeling horny while watching.

In Mexico, a woman was led out of a cinema screening in handcuffs when people complained of what she was up to. It seems that she had decided that the film was far too good not to join in with, and so she began to masturbate to what was on the screen. Lovely!

It gets worse. It seems that participation in the film is happening in a lot of places, with moviegoers taking off their socks and tying them around their heads as makeshift blindfolds for the blindfolding scene of the movie. As you can imagine, people have been told to stop when the smell has become too must for others.

The ugly

We wish we could say that is as bad as it gets, but it seems that it isn’t. Not only are poor cinema workers having to separate couples going at it, but they are also finding some unusual items on the floor.

Everything that appears in the movie seems to be making an appearance in the screenings, from masks and handcuffs to used condoms. Yes, people are casually discarding their used condoms on the floor for someone else to find. Real smooth, folks.

The worst thing about it is that it isn’t only semen on the scene. Blood has also been found after a man was attacked at a Glasgow screening of the movie. The three woman thought it was best to glass him. His crime? Asking them to keep the noise down during the film.

It’s just a movie

I’m horrified by some of the things I’ve read. Why is this happening? It is just a movie! Are people really getting so involved and forgetting where they are that they will treat the place like their bedroom?

To say that I’m not a fan of the Fifty Shades series would be an understatement. I’ve tried to read them. Multiple times, actually. Yet there are only so many times you can read Anastasia saying “oh my!” before she starts to sound like George Takei.

We can’t deny that Fifty Shades has been incredibly popular at the box office, but are we taking things too far? Have you been tempted to wank in the middle of a screening?
