A charity shop in Swansea has asked its supporters to please stop donating copies of erotica trash Fifty Shades of Grey as they’re basically drowning in them.
A couple of years ago it was seen in the hands of thousands of women on holiday, in bed and being read in their lunch hours. E.L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, it was ‘porn for ladies’. Men were confused, women were flustered and then everybody came to their senses and realised it was actually a poorly written bunch of wank.
What to do? It seems give your discarded and crumpled erotica to your local Oxfam, except even they don’t want it anymore. Swansea Oxfam has taken to their social media to plea with people to stop donating copies of the book and give them something people actually want to buy.
Oxfam shop manager Phil Broadhurst told BBC Radio 5 Live: “It’s been ever since the books first came out. When they first came out, we wanted them, because it was our bestselling book for a couple of weeks. And then ever since then, we’ve had lots of people desperate to get rid of them and they bring them in nonstop.”
Do everyone a favour, just burn it.
