* Not in the work itself, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvX6LkbiS-U various]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K1RcKJVbHA celebrities]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WahBH9sANg reading]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvZVpbJ9DzY it.]]
** [[TeamFourStar TFS]] and [[DougWalker Doug Walker]] 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 GeorgeTakei one is particularly amusing, since he shares a CatchPhrase with the narrator. The one with 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".
*** His entire use of AccentUponTheWrongSyllable
* For the interview, Kate had planned to ask Grey if he was gay, for no apparent reason.
* Any time the phrase [[PurpleProse "inner goddess"]] is uttered. Among the things it does is a "salsa merengue," and waving pom-poms like a cheerleader, and it is once said to be like someone who has had an ice-cream snatched from it.
** There's also the line from ''Fifty Shades Darker'': "My inner goddess is doing a triple axel dismount from the uneven bars." "Triple axel" is a jump in figure skating. Dismounting the uneven bars is done in ''gymnastics''.
* 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 Ana goes "Oh my!" or "Holy crap!" and wants to masturbate at the sight of Christian Grey.
* 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".
* The fact that E.L. is obviously unfamiliar in how to give a blowjob. For fucks sakes, she talks about "swirling his penis with my tongue".
* "I would like to bite that lip."
* "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 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."
* "He reaches between my legs and [[FetishRetardant pulls on the blue string]] –[[BigWhat what?!]] – [[FetishRetardant and gently pulls my tampon out and tosses it into the nearby toilet.]] [[SirSwearsalot Holy fuck. Sweet mother of all… Jeez.]] And then [[IKEAErotica he’s inside me.]]"
** [[SkewedPriorities YOU DO NOT PUT TAMPONS IN THE FUCKING TOILET, OR IT MIGHT CLOG.]]
* The fact that the author obviously isn't familiar with the BDSM subculture.
* Let's just say the whole book.
** Let's just say the entire ''series''.
** Most of them are mostly {{Narm}} rather than intentional (especially the inner goddess parts).
* In ''Fifty Shades Darker'', Ana and Christian go to Jose's art show. To their surprise, several people recognize Ana and they soon find out why: an entire wall is dedicated to photos of her (that she didn't know existed). (This part is, by the way, blatant plagiarism of Blue is the Warmest Colour). Christian immediately purchases every picture.
