The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' trailer has sparked a lot of outrage among the anti-porn groups over "glamorizing violence against women".


Gail Dines, a professor of sociology and women's studies at Wheelock College in Boston and a founding member of Stop Porn Culture, said that the trailer is "absolutely a misrepresentation" of what is in the book, and that it is been advertised as a love affair and erotic sex, when it's really about abuse and violence, and the grooming of a young girl into sadistic sex, The Washington Post reported.

Dawn Hawkins, executive director of Morality in Media and PornHarms.com, said that media reports are "glamorizing" the movie and Americans may not realize it, but bondage, sadomasochism (BDSM) and "kink" scenes are part of mainstream pornography.

The "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie is currently unrated, and the trailer, which carries a "green band" saying it is approved for "appropriate audiences", is available in many places on the Internet, including the movie's website at Universal Studios, which is producing the film with Focus Features.

The trilogy written by EL James follows wealthy businessman Christian Grey as he meets Anastasia, a virginal college student, and woos her into his BDSM world and "red room of pain."
