Dud root given the arse card

As he should… I mean who would want to be a dud root?

 Of all the grounds for divorce, “My husband won’t tie me up with cable ties and spank me when I’m bad” wins the prize for novelty.

And the prize goes to a 41-year-old British woman who filed for divorce because her husband wouldn’t act out scenes from Fifty Shades of Grey.

For those of you who’ve spent the last nine months either a) living in a convent, b) being a contestant on Big Brother or c) preoccupied with stuff that actually matters like, oh-I-don’t-know-Syria-perhaps, Fifty Shades of Grey is a bestselling series of erotic novels by EL James about a university graduate Ana Steele who agrees to become a sex slave for billionaire Christian Grey.

The aggrieved wife who played the mummy-porn card to secure her divorce is a banker who reportedly earns in excess of £400,000 a year.

Apparently she was bored with her allegedly dud-root of a husband so she did what many other women have done in similar situations. She bought some saucy underwear to try and raise her husband’s er, um, level of interest.

So far, so Dr Feelgood.

But when her husband refused to role play the creepy, moody, abusive sociopath Christian Grey, she initiated divorce proceedings citing her husband’s “boring attitude” to sex as evidence of “unreasonable behaviour”.

Her husband agreed with this assessment and didn’t contest the divorce – presumably to avoid having his libido or sexual tastes dissected and mulled over in the family division of the UK’s High Court.

    Bet she’s fat.

      Or he’s a 100lb weakling sop, who has sand kicked in his face at the beach.

  • Changeiscoming

    A good example of the destructive influence of ponography. It destroys lives and marriages and familes. Our increasing liberal media and public are totally blinded by its insidious nature.

    • In Vino Veritas

      Of course Change. And the four horsemen of the apocalypse are nigh. The sky is about to fall.

      The internet is for porn

      • Lion_ess

        The internet isn’t for porn. Rather, porn is available on the internet for those who choose to view it.

  • Seems to me

    Seems to me that, if she indeed is a highly paid banker, he thought it would be a good payday. For $400,000 a year she is probably, hardly home, yapping on about work all the time. Probably its interfering with his “bit on the side”. Sounds like both parties are moving on with their lives….and so they should…

    • Honcho

      Brittish, so no doubt also sick of the constant barrage of compaints and bitching and moaning.

  • Neil

    Why didn’t she just go to the local bordello – oh of course she couldn’t afford it….lol!!!

  • Mediaan

    I suspect they have worked the story out together so neither will look like a dud root, as WO so elegantly puts it (also in this week’s Truth, which is very good indeed BTW).

  • Patrick

    Yeah but as a parting gift you would play along tie her up & give her the thrashing of her life wouldn’t you? I mean that is what she wants after all.
