Fifty Shades Darker in REAL LIFE…

50 Shades of Grey is a weird story. 

Christian is a hot, emotionally-damaged billionaire with some crazy ex girlfriends and a craving for sadomasochism.

Ana is the young, bookish wallflower with whom he becomes totally obsessed. Before they date, he even makes her sign a contract to state which kinky activities he’s allowed to perform on her in the bedroom.

Umm… can anyone say major red flags??

I really don’t want to spoil this week’s video, but all I’ll say is, this is how the trailer should have gone…

    This is too funny!! God job!!

    Now ~ on the flip side, if they would simply have portrayed him as kinky instead of as broken, this could have been a fun fantasy instead of a disaster waiting to happen.

  2. Captian Obvious says:

    Funny thing about how much people shame and attack the forcefulness and “rapey’ness” of this movie/story but it’s a massive best seller because women actually get off on this.

    It is why one of the most common female fantasies is being forced to have sex. It is why a large majority of women love a forceful man.

    So regardless of the social justice need to try and hate on this movie. It is what women generally want.

    • Hayley says:

      Women want to be passionately desired by a man that they themselves desire. Don’t mistake that for wanting to be forced. I know about rape fantasies and I understand that women have them because we are told that only sluts want sex. But, as a woman who is quite comfortable with her sexuality, I can tell you that consent is always a must. There is a very sexy way to give a woman her forceful fantasy while still getting consent, even while being spontaneous. BUT the big lesson is, don’t confuse wanting intense desire and playful force with molestation and rape.

  3. Yazmin says:

    Ok I have to admit this Was funny Of course no woman would stay with this type of guy. About the handcuffs and spankings in the bedroom that is realistic I’m one of those types of girls I’m not ashamed in hiding that fact. It’s not bad spicing things up in the bedroom so it doesn’t get boring. Ttfn
    XO yazz

  4. kristin says:

    I haven’t even seen this movie. I think it looks really stupid and frankly full of cliches. Sex in a shower? Handcuffs? Wow, never heard of that before. Sounds like a story for people who’ve never even had sex.

  5. Carmen says:

    Thank you!!! I could not believe the fascination with the first one to begin with, so I love that you tell it like it is..unhealthy! I hardly consider this movie to be a realistic view of anything.. let alone bondage etc in the bedroom.

  6. nobody's angel says:

    That was rather…interesting, Matthew.
    I’d love to introduce Christian Grey to Mistress J….

  7. Nisha says:

    So on point anybody else think he is rape-ish and if he was poor this would be a criminal minds episode ???

  8. Megan Reger says:

    OH My, yes, that was a hilarious & true trailer!

    I had to tell a kinky guy who wanted an “open/multipartnered” relationship, “Sorry, you may be Fifty Shades of Grey, but I’m more like Fifty Shades of Earl Grey. Not interested”.

    I did not spend my time watching this movie, but it is refreshing to see that there are others in the world who agree that this is not an example of a healthy & desirable relationship!

    Thank you, H Family!

  9. Alana says:

    I love this hilarious video. Couldn’t agree more. I tried reading the first book and finally put it down because it was just so ridiculous…I mean get therapy, do transformational work, heal yourself. Why choose all that drama and darkness? Thanks for the humor and light!

  10. Jen says:


    The video was great. I’d love to see a video of you going more in depth about your thoughts on the story and Christian’s character. He does peak my interest. It may just be the Cinderella aspect though.

  11. Heather says:

    Oooo I just love this! Its true, its just a kinky movie, meant to be a distraction from reality. LOVE your humor!

  12. Chelli says:

    This video is hilarious. This story became a hit because it’s some kind of a Cinderella story. I’ve read the books, he was lovable for those women who like to think that they can take someone so damaged and change him. But yeah, Christian is boring. And I wouldn’t want a guy that’s only exciting in the bedroom.

  13. Hera Moni says:

    He is NOT Boring!!! He is a Perfect man who loves his lady, cares about her and tring to come to a normal life. I LOVE Christian. I dream a guy like him always as my future partner.

  14. Anna says:

    While I agree the funny voice over was spot on and hilarious I don’t like the mockery that 50 shades has made upon the BDSM community. And by poking fun at it…..there’s also a lot of insults perhaps….(well I’d hope unintentionally) aimed at the stable, mentally culpable, amazing men and women I have had the pleasure of meeting within the actual real life kink community. The community themselves do not see 50 shades as a fair representation. And it upsets us that mainstream “Vanilla’s” believe that this poorly written (and obviously not truly influenced by actual BDSM principals) is possibly the only reflection one might be exposed to in regard to a beautiful and very personal lifestyle choice. So while I greatly enjoy your articles and videos…I don’t enjoy feeling as if I were just shamed for my sexual expression. I really hope that wasn’t your intent. And I’ll try to give you the benefit of a doubt. Because a man who’s involved with BDSM is still just a man….capable of being a great husband and provider and helping maintain a longterm and healthy relationship…..despite this shoddy fictional depiction of a typical dominant man.
    A domina who knows her worth and still enjoys her kink

  15. Ursula says:

    I had to watch this repeatedly, so I could laugh throughout the day. Personally, I liked the movie and will see the next one. While I find your interpretation accurate, I simply enjoy the sexual tension and ideas of experimentation. In saying that, I do NOT find that guy to be hot! I think people take FICTION too seriously and for me, it was more about waking up inner desires and not demeaning. After you have licked a Haagen Dazs, why settle for Otter Pops?

  16. Caity says:

    The books were a joke. And this parody did make me laugh some. The books and even this fun film portrayed him as being damaged and having issues because of his lifestyle. It painted a very negative image on the community as being broken individuals that all need “fixing and counseling”.

    Plus lets not ignore the most important part of those books- the contract. The BDSM community believes in Safe, Sane, and Consentual as the pillars. Fact is there are just as many normal people in the Kink community as there are Vanilla. What he did in the beginning with her violated every aspect of that. Simply put, he took advantage of the situation and and labeled it as kink.

    Prior to every scene negotiations should be made. Limits should have been made clear. Finding the right partners is key. These books just further setback the BDSM Community by introducing people that think simply because they have read the books he/she is now a Dom/me.

  17. Katie says:

    Have no interest in the book or movie but “Here’s some random sh*t to distract you from the fact I have no personality”

    I’m dying

  18. Sophia says:

    Has this also increased the amount of guys/women willing to try bdsm!?Ive tried tinder and gave up on that. But honestly the amount of men who would ask if Im keen to do this?? Maybe I didn’t realise how popular it was !

  19. Sonja says:

    Hahaha this is brilliant! and so very true!

  20. Denali says:

    Kind of…rapey

    Hilarious and my thoughts exactly!

  21. says:

    Funny piece–well done. I never read the book or saw the movie, but I certainly have heard all the rage about it–the first of which came from a woman in her 50s that I worked with who said, “You have to read it!” Well. this gal had lived a rather sheltered life and was recently divorced … I think to her, it all sounded very exciting. So I read a couple of reviews and excerpts online. They were hysterical. The writing is terrible and full of stupid, sad, little clichés; much like the story itself, as you pointed out. At the time, I remember thinking, “Haven’t any of these women ever read any Harold Robbins?” (I happened upon a handful of his books at age 13, and raced through them like a rabbit with its tail on fire. He was a far better writer, and if smutty, sordid tales are what you’re after–well then. He’s your guy. ;))

    That said, yeah … the reality of someone like Christian is a lot less exciting and glamorous at the end of the day. Ladies, this sort (*ahem* Mr. Creepy-Guy-Narcissist) will not change for you or anyone else–it’s just how he is wired. He is the type to lie and cheat and steal, and when it comes to girls, his appetite is completely insatiable. There’s no end to it because he’s trying to fill a hole inside that is bottomless. And you may think, “Oh, well, it’s different with us. He really cares about me.” No, he doesn’t. And there is no “us.”

    Years ago, when I was dating Narcissus, I one day realized that I had been replaced overnight by a new flavor. It hurt. A lot. And you know what? That relationship could have continued. Most likely, I could still be with him if I wanted it (along with his other flavors–and incidentally, the same thing happened to the next woman, only in a much shorter space of time), but I’m very glad I walked away. I remember one of his old mates (a woman he grew up with) saying to me, “Yes, well. He’s all right for a mate, but he’s not the kind of man you want for a partner–he’s not what you would call a ‘good man’. So darling … dry your tears. You’ve had your day at the fair, and now it’s time to go home.”

    • Heather says:

      Love this post! And I do totally agree wholeheartedly with your assessment of Narcissus man. TOTALLY.

      • Trish says:

        Indeed; there is a term for these sort of movies–I believe it is *soft porn.* ;)

        And thank you, yes! Good thing I have a sense of humor; otherwise, I would have turned into some sort of puddle back then, I’m sure. ;) Ah, well, it’s not as though we didn’t have some good times–but I am glad they’re in the past!

        Be well! xx

  22. Alejandra says:

    So… I loved your version of the trailer. I really loved it.
    To be honest, a couple of weeks ago I found myself wishing to have Anna’s ‘luck’ to change her relationship (from sex to love) and now I realize how stupid we women are (me included) and tend to undervalue our own value. Like Anna, I was involved for the first time in my life with a man who happened to only want me for one thing and like her, I wanted to change him and (once again) like her I also allowed things that I shouldn’t have but, luckily, I could walk away from that.
    Even though I was aware of the despicable situation that the saga describes and best-sells I also fell in love with the silly so-called love story. I agree with many opinions from here that if Grey was a ‘normal’ ‘middle class’ man, he would be the antagonist in the story. But since we were all brought up with the Cinderella fairy tale it’s ok to tolerate this kind of behaviour if the man has money (and muscles).
    In advance, I apologize for my English.
    Thanks for your support! Love from Argentina :)

  23. Judy says:

    Grrrrr…..or is it , prrrrrrr, anyway, was fun!

  24. Cindy says:

    Thanks for making fun of this movie! Such a flagrant promotion of insane and inhumane – making it look pretty and sexy… Like false advertising… Impressionable youngsters should not be allowed to watch it… Maybe the French would have done a better job with this movie – they do ‘dark’ more honestly…

  25. Michelle says:

    Haha. Great Job!

  26. Betty says:

    Hello Matthew and everyone reading. I truly love it.. I must admit my own past insanity with all that glitter ain’t gold and be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. We are diverse people within.. And one must always question ones motives. Women should own their sexuality and there ability to be dominate in the bedroom. But as my ex would say when indulging, know if you can leave your feelings on the sheets and be able to differentiate when it’s game season. I come from women who were strong forces and I have come to learn my own power and sensuality.. WOMEN TAKE YOUR POWER BACK! YOU ARE A GIFT AND HOW WORTHY IS HE TO OPEN IT!

  27. Jana McDaniel says:

    Im very anxious to see it. I loved the first episode. Read the books just excited to see it! Feb 14

  28. Sandra says:

    “I have to get you back, otherwise i’ll have to get someone just as easy to manipulate” Oh lol yes!
    A good friend taught me to walk away at the first sign of manipulation, no matter how much $ & muscles he’s got.

  29. Kumi says:

    Mat! Thank you! wonderful! Love the video! :D

    Love the “surrounding shit to disguise how boring I am,…”, “I have to find somebody else just as easy as to manipulate,…” :D :D :D

    Always enjoy the video and learning from the video. By your video and products, feel like I finally had a wise, understanding, no-critisizing, feeling-safe-to-tell-my-failure-story-to mum or dad or brother which I always wanted.

    Thank you Mat,

  30. Jen says:

    “It’s too much effort to explain all my weirdness to a new woman.” BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    “Are you happy? Because he has no personality.”

    “Do you think adding crazy exes will make this film interesting?”

    Hilarious, MH. Thanks for this!

  31. Kalvinder says:

    Sorry Matthew,
    I don’t mind boring. In my view it is stable and secure and I don’t like drama and stupidity and prefer boring and yes he flirted with s&I’m but so long as Ana gets him off s&M I would be interested in someone like him and I agree it’s probably boring for a film but the ordinariness of life can seem boring to thrill seekers.

  32. Lauren says:

    So I’ve had a lot on my mind this week and when I clicked on this vid I knew I was watching one of your vids for week but after watching for a about 10 seconds I forgot this was a Matthew Hussey vid and I starting thinking I was watching the official preview for 50 Shades Darker- I am not joking. I kept wondering how I clicked on the official preview for this movie but continued to watch because I like to know a little about what’s popular at the time even if it’s something I’m not a fan of- like 50 Shades. Anyway as I was watching this vid I thought “Wow! They are saying some really weird shit in this preview!” -believing it was the real thing! But then again, I’m not that familiar with 50 Shades so I don’t know what they would say lol. When it got close towards the end of it I remembered I was watching a Matthew Hussey vid lol! So I guess it means everyone doing the voice overs did an excellent job because you fooled me into believing it was the REAL preview! All that being said, I was under stress and I also blame that for my vulnerability to be so easily tricked lol. Great work Matt and team!!! :D

  33. Ms.V says:

    Good one! I do not see how anyone could not see the Red flags in the series.

  34. Sarah says:

    Nailed it! Ha!

  35. Ginger says:

    Thank you Matthew!!!
    I am literally the only girl in my friends group who doesn’t like fifty shades, I keep telling my girls that all it is is normalizing abuse but they still obsesss over it. Such an honest and blunt read on these movies, LOVED.

  36. Lily says:

    Hahaha!!! That was the best realistic trailer I saw for this movie ever!! I loved it. It made me laugh xD Yes please make more like this!!!
    Thank you Matt.

  37. Kalee says:

    My favorite part “You should all stay home” hahahahah cracking up so hard right now!!! Bravo to you and your team Matthew. This was amazing and so hilarious!

  38. Jessica says:

    Thank you Matt! If this movie was set in a trailer park everyone one would be freaking out, praying for a good guy to save Ana from this abusive boyfriend, but since Christian is a billionaire he’s just, esentric, misunderstood and needs her…. hmm still sounds like abuse. My mind is perplexed at how women march across the country this weekend about equality, yet flock by the droves to a movie like this. Can’t have it both ways ladies. Have some respect for yourselves, quit being prostitues to society.

  39. Joanne says:

    Haha, really clever, Matthew. You’ve got a gift for satire.

  40. Kelly says:

    Love this Matthew. 50 Shades of Ridiculous. Personally, I have always thought this whole scenario is for women afraid to own their sexuality and who have ZERO sense of humor. Boring indeed. :)

  41. Tamara says:

    Hahaha.. this is briljant! ^^ Sadly you didn’t play a (darker) part in this one ;)


  42. M says:

    Yes! Thank you for keeping it real. I avoided this movie. Interesting about this movie and the teen vampire movies – they sell an obsessive, addictive relationship as what love is. So we are supposed to graduate from Disney – barely know the guy but must be love to unless he is obsessed with me it isn’t love…:) No thanks. Love your videos by the way.

  43. Kirstin says:

    This is exactly what a narcissistic relationship looks and sounds like. I’be been out of an abusive relationship for 2 years, and I still haven’t met a guy that was decent. They all look like this.

  44. Jaqi says:

    That was so on point!!!

  45. Julie Nicholson says:

    What is wrong with the film industry portraying this as love and sexy ,,,, millions of women world wide fooled , my question is why do a lot of women love this , including a lot of my friends ,
    Quite a toxic concept of love this movie .
    God bring back Cary Grant .!

  46. Leecis Perry says:

    As I dry my tears of laughter, I reminisce to the day I realized that a dominant man I was seeing, was indeed, BORING. After a couple of years of soul growth, I now know that any “one dimensional man/relationship” is only a lesson.

  47. Julie MacKenzie says:

    That was awesome! Keep the videos coming….;)

  48. Jeanette Reynolds says:

    Matthew, you’re simply the BEST!! I love your personality and the way that sexy brain of yours works. Once again you’ve hit a home run!! MORE PLEASE….

  49. Paloma says:

    Agreed! Best line!

  50. Crystal says:

    I liked it, but a shame you use this to try and paint a picture of a wrong guy. This is about BDSM, not a vanilla relationship, and you cannot compare those. So even though this is funny, it puts BDSM in the ‘wrong’ corner, yet again, and I think this is a shame. If you don’t understand what BDSM is all about, don’t use it to build a case to flog your own workshops. Commercially speaking a smart move, I give you that. Yet, it’s at the expense of the entire BDSM community, which is not right.

  51. JH says:

    Love this video but having never read the book or seen the movie (thankfully) :-( – is it really possible that we women are so easily manipulated and/or addicted and why?!?

  52. Angie says:

    Hahahahaha SO FUNNY ! Mmm muscles? Haha , well all girls love the “nice” side of Christian but without money, Mansion, helicopter, he is just a weird creepy Kidnapper

  53. Jillian Wesney says:

    Oh my! That was the best trailer, only because it is true! Will you marry me Matthew? Lol!

  54. Sabrina says:

    Haha!! I love this!!! So true…reality check…don’t romanticize unhealthy relationships! Thanks this was a brilliant post!!! Brilliant!!!

  55. Gina says:

    Ahhhhhh! That was priceless! Thank you for the laughs! But really…….stop wasting time with the great looking guy that isnt good enough for you. value and love yourself first!!!!

  56. JJ says:

    Right????Love this! I once dated a guy that told me he “liked to dress his girls”…meaning buy them clothes and tell them what to wear. I had to hold his hand while trying to finish my steak, because he kept trying to run his hand up my skirt. Even after I asked him to remove it. I had just met him! Noped the heck out of there.

  57. Jacqueline says:

    BRILLIANT!! Such an entertainingly direct exposure of the truth beneath the romanticising us women do in falling for the wrong guys – the unavailable, the players, the narcissists etc.
    A masterpiece! Thank you so much Mart, made me laugh so much on a Sunday morning .

    too funny.

    “The it’s bitsy spider went up the lady’s leg!!!! ”

  61. Vicky says:

    Omg that is so funny!!!

  62. Kathleen says:

    Hi Matthew this idea started off its life in New Zealand and re published under someone else stealing the storyline. Prior to that a load of other erotic stories still to this present time get read. I am no expert in relationships clearly but I do know like scores of females what makes it so compelling. Men are quite mundane in the sack hence one nighters where they are not known to the other party they can step outside the sqare. I do believe Micky Rouke made a movie 40 years ago and us girls went by the droves to see it.Goodbye

  63. Tina says:


  64. Lynda says:

    Really Matt, your telling me you’ve forgotten the women that had you sexually addicted, excited beyond your imagination and causing you to fight to impress her just that little extra every time?

    Whilst all she was doing was allowing you to be who you are as long as you let her in!

    Wouldn’t you say the psychodynamics of the characters are still the foundation of all teach us!
    Loved the video btw keep them coming

  68. GKitty says:

    OMG, this is hilarious! (Also? SPOT. ON.) Nicely played, you… nicely played. :D

  69. Charlotte says:

    Amazing!!!! I am crying with laughter. Thank you for this video.

  70. Lilian says:

    Hi there! Thank you for making me laugh and brighten this sunday! with your hilarious writing :D Please create more videos like this, thank you :DD

  71. Cassie says:

    Matt, idk what to think anymore. The more of your advice I hear, the more videos I watch, the less I think men have good intentions toward me at all. I’ve just been a toy to be used. I believe there are good men out there who want plutonic relationships, but is there a man alive who won’t lie to get a woman naked?

    • alabala says:

      Plutonic relationships? LOL Plutonium allright

    • Cherlyn says:

      I know you asked Matthew this, but yes, Cassie, there are.

      3 of them, in fact, came into my life at the same time (I believe making myself a “rare bird” as Matthew puts it was very much a key factor). Those were men who treated me very, very well, were true to their word, were vulnerable and even if they were horny, they told me that honestly.

      Almost all men want sex, but not all are going to lie to you about it. Some take care to make you feel comfortable, to treat you the way YOU deserve to be treated and make sure to tell you their needs in an honest way that can be respected.

      One of those men is now my amazing, goofy boyfriend who makes me laugh all the time.

      PS: You might want to look up Law of Attraction and manifesting. I wholeheartedly believe that me meeting all these men was a result of what I deeply believed to be true about myself (that I was worthy of love and belonging).

  72. Patricia says:

    OMG, I ’bout pissed my pants laughing so hard from this video!
