50 Shades author “writes sex” to Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas

‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ author EL James has shared a startling quote about her chosen playlist when scripting sex scenes. Apparently, the Black Eyed Peas ‘Sexy’, as features on and co’s 2003 LP ‘Elephunk’, is prime listening for porn-spiration. Yuck.

Business Insider has the sexy/gory details: “I write to music all the time. I have music playing in my headphones and I have a huge playlist for writing. I have various songs for various things and some of them made it into the books”.

She adds: “I have songs that I write sex to. One of them is the Black Eyed Peas’ ‘Sexy’. That’s a very sexy song. And that’s all I’m prepared to tell you. Because if I told you the other ones you wouldn’t believe it”.

No, I probably wouldn’t. If, like me, you’d like to write your own S&M-themed bestseller, here’s the EL James-approved incentive to do so:

Again, yuck.
