I finished reading all three books of FSOG in 2012. Just sad, I can’t recall all the juicy details anymore, guess I have some re-reading to do. But I have one that just popped out of my memory right now - Remember that Audi chase where Anna was driving the car and they end up making out in the parking lot? Well, that I can remember. It wasn’t shown on the trailer though, but that scene for me was exhilarating.
And there’s another one that I can vividly remember, the book sparked a heated discussion among my colleagues at our faculty room one time, men vs. women on the issue of dominance, submissiveness, inflicting pain and rewards in sexual relationship. Apparently, that discussion has settled us all to agree that the depiction of BDSM in this fiction is certainly non-existent in Filipino intimacy culture. A male colleague was even all honest to say, 'the equipment were all outrageously expensive', and he’d rather just go vanilla than to invest in a mind-blowing ‘red room’ apparatus. Well, I guess you’re not primed enough buddy, both financially and culturally to get into this business. At least we know there are complexities of this kind in our society.
