** [[Creator/TeamFourStar TFS]] and Creator/DougWalker reading it is [[http://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC36F6B027791D382 completely]] hilarious with all of them doing either one of their (famous) roles or impersonating different characters.
** The Creator/GeorgeTakei one is particularly amusing, since he shares a CatchPhrase with the narrator. The one with Creator/MorganFreeman ([[labelnote:sorta]]It's actually a voice imitator named Josh Robert Thompson[[/labelnote]]) also includes some pretty hilarious commentary.
-->'''Ana:''' I like your [[{{Narm}} kinky fuckery]].
-->'''"Morgan Freeman":''' Yeah, more like bullshit douchery.
** Gilbert Gottfried's reading features him ''screaming'' the word "clitoris" (or, as he [[LargeHam says]] it, "CLIT'''''TOOOOR'''''IS").
*** His entire use of AccentUponTheWrongSyllable.
*** And now see [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Iago]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGFe26H8lWg read it]].
** In a similarly meta moment of funny, [[Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver John Oliver]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPloDzu_wcI would like to be considered to play Christian Grey.]] Despite [[CriticalResearchFailure having no idea what the book is about.]]
** Creator/JonStJohn [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oUa-3W0BFI reading a passage]] as VideoGame/DukeNukem is gold.
** Comedian Andrew Orvedahl's thoughts on the [[MemeticMutation infamous]] passage "His voice was warm and husky, like melted dark chocolate fudge caramel, or something," which [[{{Narm}} rightfully]] belongs here, too:
--> …"Or something"? You're the fucking '''author!''' You get to decide what that "or something" is; that's part of your ''job'' while writing a book! Like she's just sitting there, writing, and she was like: "His voice w- I'm hungry for dessert, what does a ''voice'' sound like? …Eh, you'll figure it out!"
** Creator/RoosterTeeth had reading a passage as one of their goals whenever they hit a certain milestone for Extra Life '15. They did it three times. The first time is read straight. The second time is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHSoztUW0pk read by Lindsay Jones]] as ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''[='=]s Ruby Rose. The third time? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TF1npeEBBhI Read by Matt Hullum]] as ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''[='=]s Sarge.
*** Lindsay as Ruby is funnier as Lindsay doesn't like having her character cuss, thus she invokes GoshDarnItToHeck, leading to Christian to declare "I don't make love. I truck. Hard."
** When TheMovie came out, the folks at ''WebVideo/HonestTrailers'' poked fun at it.

* Every time the "subconscious" is mentioned. Interestingly, the "subconscious" isn't really her subconscious, because she's clearly aware what the subconscious is doing (such as wearing half-moon spectacles) which is fully conscious.

* Every time a foil packet (euphemism for condom) is mentioned during a sex scene.
* Every time a euphemism for vulva is used, e.g. "my sex" or "down ''there''."
* Every time a euphemism for penis is used, e.g. "incredible length".
* "I would like to bite that lip."
* Christian's explanation for why he does BDSM: "Because I'm [[TitleDrop fifty shades of]] fucked up, Ana!" You don't say, Chris. You don't say.
* "Moving down, I push him into my mouth. He groans again. Ha! My inner goddess is thrilled. I can do this. I can fuck him with my mouth."
** "My very own Christian Grey-flavored popsicle."
* "I'm a ho with dirty sex hair."
* Ana's mental response to the news that she just had "vanilla sex" with Grey: "I thought it was chocolate fudge brownie sex that we had, with a cherry on the top."
