Fifty Shades is essentially the training bra of erotic novels. The book has its kinky moments, it’s not overly raunchy, which attributes to its booming success. Most of its content is a story line, with sex scenes woven intermittently throughout the narrative.

Erotic literature is nothing new, but this book marks the first time in publishing history where an erotic novel has become incredibly mainstream. Dubbed “mommy porn” for its initial popularity among housewives, Fifty Shades is now in high demand among women of all ages.

People are raving about the new erotic romance novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L. James.

The book, which started out as Twilight fan fiction in an online forum, has topped best-seller lists around the world. It has sold over ten million copies, setting the record in the UK as the fastest-selling paperback of all time.

The story follows shy English major, Anastasia, who is courted by billionaire adonis, Christian Grey. As the story unfolds, we discover Grey’s insatiable sexual appetite, affinity for the BDSM (bondage, domination, sadism and masochism lifestyle) and how Ana handles this.

Erotic literature is nothing new, but this book marks the first time in publishing history where an erotic novel has become incredibly mainstream. Dubbed “mommy porn” for its initial popularity among housewives, Fifty Shades is now in high demand among women of all ages.

What is it about this story that has females shamelessly clawing copies from bookstore shelves and when it’s sold out, demanding stores to put in on backorder?

“For the past five or so years the subject, especially bondage, has been addressed from time to time in my poetry workshops,” FSU English professor Barbara Hamby said. “I have thought that it must be a part of the zeitgeist, the experimentation of all kinds that takes place in one’s twenties or later for those who were grinds in their twenties and missed that stage. It’s interesting to see how the form changes every five or so years. However, this is a subject that has been written about before, the Marquis de Sade’s work and Sacher-Masoch’s Venus in Furs being examples.”

Despite the book’s acclaim, many readers find it degrading toward women.

Ana is no paragon of a heroine and her portrayal has many concerned about the books’ influence on young teens. She is introduced as a self conscious, prudish virgin, whose inner dialogue conflicts constantly with her actions.

Her desire to be an independent, successful business woman in the publishing industry is often counteracted by her self-consciousness. She also perpetually allows Grey to dictate her life and the relationship consumes her mind, body and soul.

“Grey controls her with sex, contracts and buying her things,” FSU student Riley McFadden said. “He constantly controls her and manipulates what she eats, how she is dressed and all that demeans Ana. I understand that it is part of the culture of doms and subs but, in my opinion, when that sort of control leaves the bedroom, it’s demeaning.”

On the other hand, many view the book as broadening the horizons of our sexually repressed society. Being open about sex is becoming more common and fetishes are becoming less vilified. It also gives women the opportunity to be more dominant and suggest wants to their partner, leading to open communication, sexual satisfaction and happier relationships.

Pop culture is generally concerned with highlighting the sexual fantasies of men. This story is unique because it is told from a woman’s perspective.

“People love sex,” FSU student Sona Antonyan said. “They love reading about it, they love talking about it and they certainly love having it, and perhaps the graphic scenes in this book have bettered a sex life or two.”

While modern women profess the desire to be independent of a man’s control, there’s a small part inside every woman that wants a Christian Grey.

Since the days of the cavemen, women pursued the alpha male. Females want to be challenged, to relish in the thrill of conflict and to never lay stagnant in our relationships.

Fifty Shades is essentially the training bra of erotic novels. The book has its kinky moments, it’s not overly raunchy, which attributes to its booming success. Most of its content is a story line, with sex scenes woven intermittently throughout the narrative.

While the exploration of BDSM within Fifty Shades has many readers blushing, the book barely scratches the surface of the lifestyle, a theme many erotica books push full throttle. Its less explicit imagery lessens intimidation, while still welcoming salacious fantasies.

The widespread criticism of its generically written style may leave readers moaning in pain, rather than pleasure.

As students leave the nest after high school and enter the realm of higher education, many of them find themselves doing things they would have never done before college. In particular, tobacco use among college students has become a norm, as college students especially are lighting up and starting the addictive habit.

According to a survey by the American College Health Association, about 28.8 percent of college students have smoked cigarettes, and 80 percent of people who are regular smokers started smoking before the age of 18. In 2000, the smoking rate of students at FSU was about 30 percent, and over the years, the percentage has dropped to about 12 percent.

“Most college students start smoking because there is so much socialization that goes with it,” Health Promotion and Policy Coordinator for University Health Services Kevin Frentz said. “People get to college who might have never been smokers and start going to bars, drinking and then someone offers them a cigarette. In a bar-type of setting or with an altered state of consciousness, their ability to make rational decisions goes out the window. People start smoking socially and eventually, the nicotine starts taking over and they become addicted.”

“Social smoking” is known as tobacco use only in particular settings such as bars, clubs, parties or sporting events, rather than smoking when alone. Many students start off as social smokers until their bodies become physically addicted.

“A lot of people say ‘I’m just smoking when I’m drunk, I’ll stop when I’m ready,’ but most people don’t fully understand the consequences of their actions, and they don’t realize how addictive it actually is,” Frentz said.

Frentz said that many people are misinformed about tobacco use, and are led to believe by their peers that smoking will increase their performance, make them more focused and increase their concentration. However, smoking is actually correlated with lower academic performance, as smoking becomes a crutch for students who “chase a baseline of performance that non-smokers don’t need to try to reach.” While smokers can’t imagine living without a cigarette, people who do not smoke tend to study longer and more efficiently and do better in school overall.

“Whenever I’m studying with my friend, she always has to leave to take a cigarette break or else she isn’t able to focus,” FSU sophomore Alexandra Hansen said. “If she never got into the habit, her concentration wouldn’t be compromised by her dire need to smoke.”

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the consequences of smoking include increased chance of lung cancer, coronary heart disease, stroke, respiratory diseases, lung diseases and other health risks. Tobacco accounts for nearly 443,000 deaths in the United States each year, which is one in five deaths. Despite the consequences, smoking among college students is still prevalent. Soon, however, smokers at Florida State University will be forced to leave campus to smoke, as FSU has just become one of the 783 tobacco-free campuses across the country. The policy, which will go into effect in January 2014, is part of a health initiative to make FSU a more health-focused campus.

“I think it’s awesome,” FSU sophomore Joelle Garcia said. “I hate walking to class and being subjected to other people’s cigarette smoke. With my asthma, it’s really uncomfortable.”

Through the years, FSU has taken several steps to be more health-focused and less tobacco tolerant. Tobacco products used to be sold on campus at the Trading Post, the Bookstore and other various locations until 2001, when a ban eliminating the sale of tobacco products on campus was put into effect. In 2006, the Breath Easy Program had taken over, and is still in place until the tobacco-free policy goes into effect.

The Breath Easy Program designates specific areas on campus called “Breath Easy Zones” where people are allowed to smoke; the goal is to protect individuals from being exposed to second-hand smoke. Eventually, 100 of the 153 buildings on campus agreed to take part in the Breath Easy Policy. The main difference between a tobacco free campus and the Breath Easy Policy is that the policy allows for smoke-friendly areas and other types of tobacco other than cigarettes to be allowed on campus, while a tobacco-free campus bans all tobacco products everywhere on campus, including smokeless tobacco, snuff and chewing tobacco.

“There are several reasons we decided to go directly to a tobacco-free campus, but the primary reason is that more people will be protected with a tobacco-free policy,” Frentz said. “My main goal is to help people live the highest quality of life for as long as possible.”

Frentz has paved the way for FSU’s policies against tobacco, helping put into place the tobacco ban in 2001, the Breath Easy Policy and the tobacco-free policy. He has also created smoking cessation services to help students and faculty quit smoking, including individual and group sessions, short-term and long-term sessions to help people quit the habit.

“There are many people with chronic health conditions, asthma, cancers, lung or lung problems that cannot afford to be exposed to any second-hand smoke at all, and Breath Easy Zones don’t really provide the highest level of protection for people like that,” Frentz said. “This is a health initiative, and health is the primary objective.”
Frentz said the initiative is to try to help those who are smokers to encourage them to consider quitting by providing them with an environment that is not conducive to their dangerous habit.

“The vast majority of smokers want to quit, but they are finding it exceedingly difficult to quit,” Frentz said. “I’ve had numerous people trying to quit say that it’s much more problematic for them when they are in a college environment where many people smoke, and they just can’t get away from it.”

According to Frentz, about 88 percent of FSU students reported being exposed to second-hand smoke, and 41 percent reported weekly exposure, while 30 percent reported daily exposure to it. Of this, 81 percent of students said they were bothered by second-hand smoke, while 29 percent said that they were severely bothered by it.
“Second-hand smoke can trigger migraines, asthma attacks, allergic reactions, and other health conditions, and it’s pretty significant that so many people are seriously bothered by it,” Frentz said. “Only 12 percent of FSU students smoke, while 29 percent of students who are exposed are seriously bothered by their second-hand smoke, so whose rights should prevail? Those whose health, well being and comfort are being compromised.”

Despite this, several students do not find the tobacco-free policy to be necessary or practical, causing a burden to students rather than a benefit.

“You can take away the Breath Easy signs, but the spots are still their spots,” FSU sophomore Joseph Raia said. “Let’s say someone is a junior or a senior and they have been smoking in the same spot on campus for years. A policy isn’t going to break their habit, when they’re not even breaking their habit themselves. You can’t expect students to leave campus to smoke; it’s too much of a hassle. They’re going to smoke on campus anyways, despite any policy.”

The call for a campus-wide tobacco ban, however, has been widely supported from various organizations on campus, as well as students. Members of the Student Government Association, the Leadership Advisory Counsel and the Faculty Senate almost all unanimously voted on the tobacco-free policy on campus. In 2000, 44 percent of students supported tobacco free-campus. As of last semester, a survey by SGA found that 75.6 percent of students supported a tobacco-free campus.

“I would smoke occasionally just to be able calm my nerves about a test or if I had a lot going on,” an anonymous smoker said. “It’s just a way for me to relax and relieve stress, but I can see why they would want to stop people from smoking because it’s better for them in the long run so they can stop before they become too addicted.”

In regards to Frentz’s intentions, he said his goal is to help college students, and not arbitrarily infringe on their rights to smoke. He encourages students to be responsible for their bodies, and to taken into account not only their own health, but also the well being of their families and peers who are effected by their tobacco use.

“People might say that we’re forcing people to make certain decisions, but that’s not our goal,” Frentz said. “You have the right to make unhealthy decisions, but as a health educator, I can’t support those decisions and I must do what I can to promote health. I don’t want to come across as negative, but I want to help people achieve the highest quality of life.”
