The Submission of Emma Marx (50 Shades of Grey Porn)

I will say we’ve never seen a movie quite like The Submission of Emma Marx. As a backstory, Molly read 50 Shades of Grey, like so many soccer moms before her, and it. Was. On!! Lots of fun times that stemmed from that book. When the R rated movie came out, I was hoping it would lead to more wife-initiated action but the first time we watched it together we both fell asleep. The second time we tried to watch it together, we both fell asleep again. It was boring. The Submission of Emma Marx is basically what 50 Shades the movie tried to be. Check out the trailer:

The movie came out in 2013 and won a bunch of adult awards. It’s really high end is directed by a woman, but isn’t a light and fluffy, happy movie. It is dark and brooding, with tension. Light bondage you might find in something like Rekindling the Flame isn’t on the plate – this is harder BDSM. This is submission and dominance and heartbreak and salvation.

The story begins with a normal sister getting engaged, with a sweet post-engagement sex scene that shows the contrast between the scenes to come. Lovemaking on rose petals, the scene is romantic and fairly realistic. Later, you learn that Emma feels disconnected from this type of relationship, and has to interview Mr. Frederick (aka Grey) who has a dominant personality. The rest of the movie follows a similar script as 50 Shades. It follows Emma as she struggles with her sexual identity, and she signs a contract to be a submissive employee to Mr. Grey, err, Frederick. She doesn’t like it in her mind, but in her soul she craves that sort of relationship. She learns to like being controlled, to like giving in to that power, and trying anal for the first time, among other bondage and implements. Besides the first scene, all the rest of the sex scenes is of Emma and Mr. Fredrick of varying types and vibes. They are sometimes pretty hot, and sometimes a little not (for us), but all well lit, most tension filled, and all supported the vibe and plot of the movie.

So what did we think of the movie? It was entertaining, for one. We actually watched this whole thing in one sitting. Which is, for us a rarity (and different than our experience with the real 50 Shades movie). Usually, after the first scene of a porn Molly and I watch together, we’re ripping each others’ remaining clothes off. Here, we wanted to see what happened next, but for us, the sex wasn’t in our wheelhouse. Other reviewers loved it, but we thought it was a little too hard-edge and dark for our liking.

We’ve always said, go with what turns you on. This one is for those looking at something a little more in the BDSM vein, though those folks who are more into that lifestyle will say this movie is BDSM-lite, and appeals to more vanilla couples like us. Maybe this well shot and well acted (usually an oxymoron in porn, but in this case it is true) movie will hit the bullseye with you, but for us the Submission of Emma Marx hit wide of the mark. But that’s part of the fun, seeing what you like and what you don’t. Like I said, we’ve never seen anything quite like this movie, and it is worth watching because of its curious nature compared to the traditional fare.

Happy fucking!
