Erotic romance novel, Fifty Shades of Grey set the record as the fastest-selling book of all time and is also the bestselling book in Britain. The erotic novel has been read by almost every one, young and old. While the book is making news for being adapted into a film, everyone eager to see how the film would turn out, Lila Rose, anti-abortion activist, released her latest series of videos from Planned Parenthood clinics in Colorado, Oregon and Indiana, giving an all new perspective to what the teenagers may be gathering from the book.

Rose pretended to be a 15-year-old and approached the counselors, telling them that her boyfriend wanted to "try new things" sexually, specifying that she and her boyfriend wanted to try a few sexual acts described in Fifty Shades of Grey. The Planned Parenthood counselors gave her inappropriate advices. She said that the responses of the counselors were, "incitement to risky behavior" and said that they "glorified kids acting out rape scenarios." The counselors informed her of "educational pornos" which could help get better ideas. She said that a large part was due to the fact that the abortion business receives massive amounts of tax funding.

The footage showed Planned Parenthood workers from two clinics in the Denver area offering sex advice to undercover investigators that they thought to be underage individuals coming for counseling. The staff members explained a lot of sexual actions to them including kink, bondage, gagging, asphyxiation, whipping, being "tied up," sadism and masochism. One worker described bondage to the thought-to-be 15-year-old, "So, it's just like playing with the different power dynamics in the bedroom."

Both clinic workers suggested reading the book 50 Shades of Grey, stating that it is "anti feminine" and "male-controlling." The book they said was an "eye opening resource" to engage in BDSM or "bondage and discipline, sadism and masochism."

A study published in the American Journal of Sex Education revealed that most of the adult respondents admitted to have been interested in BDSM when they were younger than 15 years of age. Since there is a stigma attached to it, people often do not admit to their interests. The research was conducted to understand the areas sex education must cover so that the people indulging in these activities can be helped in coping with the stigma and simultaneously they can be warned of the potential dangers of disclosure.

A study of Canadian university students also found that 65 per cent of them had fantasies of being tied up, and 62 per cent had fantasies of tying up a partner. Sexpert Lena Chen said that if young people want to find out about BDSM, they can do a Google search. "I think education -particularly about consent and the psycho-emotional aspects of BDSM - is crucial if we are to provide a healthy understanding of human sexuality, and not only from a physiological but psychological perspective," she added.
